Mother’s Day often conjures images of elaborate bouquets, cursive-clad cards, and other sentimental gifts to make the mothers, grandmothers, and moms-to-be in your life feel as special and important as they truly are.
But as the saying goes, it’s important not to take oneself too seriously. This year, make Mom cry because she’s laughing too hard with one of these hilarious Mother’s Day gifts.
Cosmic Rebel Shop’s matching “Ringmaster of the Shit Show” set is the perfect gift for new moms entering the wild, wild circus that is motherhood. Choose from classic white tees or two colors of raglan tees to fit your exact style.
And if you prefer to keep your threads PG, the Etsy shop can edit the shirt’s caption to be sans curse words. (Which is admittedly easier than keeping your kid from turning "shit" into their new favorite word.)
This Mother’s Day, address the neverending inquiry into when you’re finally going to give your mom grandkids head-on. 904 Custom’s grandkid candle label might not have the cuddle potential of a little grandbaby, but it does make the house smell way better.
Opt for a sugared orange, sweet jasmine, or island volcano candle with your purchase, or stick with just the label to personalize your mom’s fav candle scent.
Look, we’re not trying to dog on baby boomers here, but there does seem to be a positive correlation between someone’s age and their inability to remember passwords.
Enter What The F*ck Is My Password: A Password Tracker, a travel-size journal for keeping social media, e-mail, bank, and other passwords in one safe place. It may be labeled a gag gift on Amazon, but we guarantee your mom will use this handy dandy notebook plenty.
Showing up to a Mother’s Day celebration with nothing but a bottle of booze might seem a bit impersonal—that is, unless that bottle of booze is tucked away in one of these hilarious customized gift bags. With all-too-apt quips like “because you can’t drink flowers” and “Mom juice” to choose from, these versatile totes can store virtually any 750 mL wine bottle and most liquor fifths.
Pair the clever wine tote with a pair of high-quality cotton and polyester socks from VINAKAS. The ‘secret’ message that appears when these socks’ lucky recipient kicks their feet up is made from anti-slip, raised rubber letters. So, go ahead, drink that third glass; these socks will hold up in dangerously slippy situations (be it from the floor shellac or the Sauvignon Blanc).
This hilariously honest t-shirt from Narwood Clothier says it all. Your personality didn’t become the weird, wacky, wonderful anomaly it is all on its own. Chances are, the lady who raised you had a big hand in making you who you are today, so why not give her some garb to celebrate that fact? The dark heather gray tee is made out of ultra-soft ringspun cotton, which means she’ll be excited to wear it, not obligated.
Being a mom means carrying everything for every occasion for everyone. Handbag who?! Celebrate her transition from designer bags to diaper bags with a durable, washable, and on-point canvas tote. The stuff inside might not belong to her, but the bag certainly does (that is, until one of the kiddos grows up and asks to borrow—ahem, steal—it).
Baby Shark swam into the zeitgeist in 2015. Six years later, the song has been permanently embedded into the brains of anyone who regularly hangs out with kids under eight—most notably, your kids’ grandma.
Baby Shark might be inescapable, but as anyone who’s attended a karaoke night can attest, a glass of wine makes just about anything sound good (okay, tolerable). Help Gran get through the 1,945,678th replay of Baby Shark with a doo, doo, doo, doo da-dynamite wine glass.
By the time a mother becomes a grandmother, she has undoubtedly changed a ridiculous amount of diapers, including yours. And while there’s never an adequate way to repay someone for wiping your (and your kids’) tushes over the past 20+ years, this decorative toilet paper roll is a pretty hilarious place to start. Sweet Southern Craft Co. provides the iron-on transfer; you do the rest.
Let’s be honest; the only woman who understands how bad your hubby is at remembering holidays is his mother. Moonlight Sunrise’s microwave- and dishwasher-safe mug is a funny, lighthearted way to show your MIL how much you love her (and lovingly poke fun at a forgetful husband).
The eye-catching floral design and crisp cursive and print fonts are sublimated into the white ceramic, not stuck on like a sticker or vinyl, ensuring your gift’s long life and lots of laugh potential.
Make sure that no one forgets who the real boss of the kitchen is with this professional-grade kitchen apron made from heavy-duty cotton featuring reinforced waist pockets, an adjustable neck strap, and a bonus food-safe silicone spatula. We can do all things through Mom, who strengthens us.
Moms aren’t just mothers—they’re chefs, launderers, house cleaners, chauffeurs, conflict resolution specialists, tutors, medics, and team managers. It can be challenging to find a gift that accurately represents how grateful we are for these superhuman women in our lives.
One gift that gets remarkably close is I See Me’s personalized Super Mom softcover book. This customized, 20-page book celebrates just how hard she works day in and day out in a unique, heartwarming way she’s sure to adore.
How’s your kid supposed to grow up as funny and quick-witted as you if you don’t subject them to a healthy dose of loving trauma? Knock Knock’s bestselling How to Traumatize Your Children has been revamped with new, hysterically dysfunctional illustrations and parenting advice dripping in side-splitting sardonicism.
Hamlin Row Shop sums up the Ultimate Grandma Energy™ with their customizable, 100% natural coir doormat. This unapologetically honest welcome mat is available in four sizes. We recommend keeping this all-natural, coconut husk fiber doormat out of the elements as much as possible for easy maintenance.
Out of all of the things a mother does for her children, the most impressive, intense, and honestly, insane was birthing the kids in the first place. For that, your mom deserves all the presents in the world.
But since buying your mom unfathomable riches might not be in the budget this year, Backyard Peaks offers the next best thing: a customizable mug celebrating your mother's most significant feats (and your grand arrival).
One of the best parts about having kiddos around is having ready access to coloring books and supplies. Coloring is therapeutic, relaxing, and fulfilling—but after a long day of having PBS Kids burned into your eyeballs, the last thing you want to look at is more cartoon characters.
