Long ago are days when you simply drew a little drawing, plucked a flower from the garden, and gave it to your mom. Sure, you can still do that. But hey, I don’t think your mother will accept a flower from her garden with a legit smile on her face. She hasn’t been dedicating all the hard work and love to her beautiful rose garden so you could pluck the roses on the go.

The only one smiling will be your sister, thinking she beat you in finding the best birthday gift for your mom. Because let’s be honest, siblings never stop competing for mom’s attention. And finding a better gift for your mom is a thing on every Mom’s birthday.

Correction, finding the best gift for mom’s birthday was a thing. Because with this gift guide you are good for the next 20 years or so. Yes, I found 20+ little luxury gifts you can give to your mum for the next 20 birthdays.


Curious to see all the 20 little luxury gifts you can give to your mother for her birthday? And all the future birthdays? Well, here they are.

Because your mom is worthy of a good luxury gift. A little luxury gift, so she won’t be mad at you. You know what I mean. Even though happy to receive a gift from you, your mother doesn’t want you to overspend your money on her.

Or perhaps she secretly does. Anyway, whatever your mother really thinks, here are the best little luxury gifts you can give to your mommy for her birthday. And all the next birthdays, of course. Although, I bet you will end up purchasing all these gifts at once. One for your mother and the rest of these little luxury gifts for you and your girls. For your father even. Boys cook too, right?


So what to give to your mother for her birthday? Anything from this list of course. Yes, there are little luxury gifts in this Mom’s birthday gift guide for any type of mom. Whether your mom is the one who waits for you with the table set or not, here are the things she will like.

And no, there are no picture frames here. Although I did like this one here, you can give a better gift than a picture frame.

But there are kitchen appliances. More than just two actually. Trust me, your mother will love these kitchen appliances even if she hates cooking. As a matter of fact, your mum will love them even more if she is a fashion-mommy who doesn’t cook at all.

But, first the chocolates. Here are some of the best birthday chocolates for moms.

Finally, the best 2021 birthday gifts for mom. Ps. You can shop directly by clicking on the items you see in all of three gift guides. Or find the link in the copy below.


So, let’s start with the kitchen appliances and things that somehow belong to the kitchen, shall we?

No, I’m not starting the list with KitchenAid Artisan as you might think. Although knowing me, you can be sure I won’t forget of beautiful pink mixer either. But no, first comes this little luxury designer kettle.


This must be the most wanted kettle among the fashion crowd. Fashion mommy or not your mother will love it. Especially when she notices that this kettle matches her Dolce & Gabbana dress and looks so great on the kitchen counter. Shop this standard kettle here. 


Another kitchen appliance from “Dolce & Gabbana Sicily is my love collection” your mother will love is this 2 slice toaster. Well, truth to be told, you should get this toaster thinking of grilled cheese and the butter & jam toast your mother will make for you. By the way, do you grill your bread for butter & jam toast? Anyway, I’m sure you will now. Pardon, your mother will do it for you. Here is where to shop Smeg by Dolce & Gabbana slice toaster. 

Now that you got your mother a fashionable kettle and a toaster you should give her a beautiful plate, teapot, and teacup too.


I can’t help wondering if Donatella is actually a housewife and home cooking mom. Because she sure knows how to design the most beautiful home collection. You can shop this beautiful Versace plate here.

5) KITCHENAID Artisan® Stand Mixer with Glass Bowl

A perfect gift to make up to your mom after breaking all her favorite porcelain cups and plates, and to say her thank you for all the dinners she made. Or to lure her into baking. Trust me, it works.

And a birthday cake for everyone in our family.  Anyway, here is where to shop this stunning kitchen appliance! 

Enough about kitchen and cooking. Here are luxury gifts for your mother that will make her feel like a lady and not just a homestay mom. She deserves that.


So little but bringing so much joy and gratitude. Jewellery and small accessories are always a very good gift idea. For moms too. Just make sure you don’t pick a classic pearl necklace or even worse a chunky golden chain.
