Shopping for your own mom on Mother's Day is stressful enough. Once you have children of your own, however, Mother's Day takes on a totally new meaning because you're also tasked with finding a great gift that your wife will love. If your kids are too young to shop on their own or well, they aren't much help, then browse through this list of gift ideas for wives until you find something that best shows how much your family loves and appreciates her. And remember, now is the perfect time to treat her to the things she won't treat herself to, including loungewear that feels like luxury, personalized jewelry, and more. There's something for every kind of mom — cooks, gardeners, fashionistas, and others — and every shopping budget (since we know that's important to you).
Hey, you might think it's cheesy, but over-communicating your love for her is always better than, well, not. Take the time to fill in fun prompts about all the reasons you love her.

Flowers don't last forever, but succulents do (as long as you care for them properly). Each succulent or cactus arrives in a shelf-worthy planter box, so she doesn't need to track down soil or the right size pot.
If you're torn between giving her jewelry or a new timepiece, go for both with this chic Anne Klein set. All of the rose gold pieces can be worn together or separate, depending on the look she's going for.
