Buying a birthday gift for your mom can be stressful since, as a rule, moms are generally hard to shop for. On top of that, they have a habit of saying they don’t want or even need anything. To help you find the perfect birthday gift for your mom — whether she’s a party animal or the type to celebrate over with some me time — we’ve rounded up 31 gifts (lots of which we’ve written about before) for practically every type of mom out there. And to make it even more stress-free, everything can conveniently be found on Amazon.

This chef-approved olive oil comes from Tuscany’s famous Frescobaldi estate and is great for salads with seafood and vegetables — or whatever she has planned for her birthday menu.
For the mom who always sets the perfect birthday table
It may be a splurge, but we bet she doesn’t have (and will appreciate) this fancy pepper mill that has a traditional handle and drawer for the grounds.
For the mom who loves party games
If she already owns the classics like Catan and Scrabble — and is getting a little tired of them — get her Monikers, an easy game that resembles charades or celebrity. We first heard about it from board game expert Dylan Speed of Meeple Mountain. The original game is sold out, but this standalone expanded version is available and even more fun.
For the mom with an infant at home
For new moms who want to make their own baby food this is a clear winner. The Beaba blends and cooks, saving time in the kitchen.
For the mom who’s celebrating her first birthday as a grandparent
Rated the best facial cleansing brush for travel by skin-care experts, the Foreo Luna Mini 2 has a dual-sided brush head with three different zones that accommodate all skin types — including normal, sensitive, and oily — plus eight adjustable intensities that allow for a customizable cleanse that will help her feel better about what she thinks are her “problem” areas.
For the cat mom
For the dog mom
For the mom who wants a better way to listen to her podcasts
