Mother's Day is a wonderful celebration of the fierce women who birthed and reared us; it's also a holiday that annually tests chronic-procrastinators' thoughtful-planning abilities ( hello, it me). To avoid triggering disappointment-flashbacks from those, "I'm sorry I forgot to take the trash out," days, we crafted an Amazon customer-approved gift-list that moms will adore (and we can easily order in a forgetful last-minute scenario).
The 20 treasures ahead cover a unique range of categories and styles — from gourmet boxes of chocolate-dipped biscotti to dazzling money trees made of rose quartz, backpack-beach-chair hybrids, vintage-chic hanging planters, portable bluetooth speakers, etherial wind chimes, and more — and are all top-rated to save you precious search-time for the best reviewed buys. Whether your mom is into function over fashion, vice versa, or appreciates a good that covers both bases, the gifts ahead have her needs down pat. Scroll on to shop now or bookmark for later…And cut ties with a procrastination-fate this May 12.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars, and 3,263 reviews
Reviews: "This is a great kitchen companion. The screen is large enough to view from across the room. Before adding an ingredient to a dish, you can confirm the measurement without walking away from the stove, bowl, mixer etc. It has great speakers so you can fill the room with sound as you prepare your gourmet dish. I am hesitant about putting it in the bedroom, video calling :). When I purchased my show, Amazon offered a free smart light bulb. I wish they would bring back that offer. Not that I would buy another show, but it might help others purchase one, if they were considering having a smart home. The new Echo Show is a must have!!!!!!"

Cute travel pouch. Perfect timing for my traveling."

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars, 3,471 reviews
Reviews: "Hands down the best money I've ever spent! I was iffy about them falling out when I first purchased them but I have had zero issues with that even when doing intense activities like sprinting and HIIT training. They seamlessly pair with my Iphone just by opening the case! I can control the volume and change the song playing in the headphones with my Apple watch so it's amazing during workouts! Another cool feature is that they automatically pause the music when you pull one out and resume when you put them back in your ear. GENIUS! The case packs an extra charge so I can go quite a while without having to re-charge. The case is sleek and small enough to hook onto my keys (I bought a silicone cover) without making them bulky. I would recommend again and again and again!!!!"

Statement Backgammon Board
Encourage some good, old-fashioned family time away from screens with this stylish and simple backgammon board with poppy turquoise color accents.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars, and 7 reviews
Reviews: "My family has been devoting entirely too much time to screens and not enough time looking at each other's faces so, I decided to invest in some classic board games and encourage them to learn them. Backgammon was a favorite that my sister and I enjoyed as kids. This set is just cool to look at! The colors are vibrant and the vibe is very retro. It instantly makes me think of my grandparent's rec room and good memories made there! The quality of the board is great. Too often the game boards today are nothing more than glorified poster board. This board is thick, sturdy, and smooth. The pieces are wooden and slide easily across the board. The only thing this set does not have are the dice cups. You don't miss them. Even the box is a quality product! It will protect your backgammon set for years. I recommend purchasing this set. You won't regret it."
Ridley's Classic Backgammon Folding Board, $20, available at Amazon

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars, and 193 reviews
Review: "Great for the beach! I brought a small neck pillow and it worked just fine. I love how portable and convenient this is! My favorite part of the chair is the pouch on the back. It's really very roomy! I was able to fit my neck pillow, magazines, beach towel, phone, and a drink in there. And the colors are very cute! Perfect chair for lounging at the beach. It was easy to position exactly how I wanted it too, and it dries off quickly after I sprayed the sand off when I was done."

To be honest if I wrapped the box or not I could give the gift just like it is (original packaging). Im giving it as a birthday present and it's something unique and better than a thoughtless gift-card."

Leather-Banded Geode Watch
This unique accessory features a hollowed-out and geode-layered face that's complimented by a sturdy yet soft leather band.
Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars, and 30 reviews
Reviews: "This watch looks even better than I hoped. I was a little worried since this is a knock off of more expensive brand, but both the band and watch face look great in person. There are no imperfections, the colors are spot on, and the metal of the watch face looks lux, not overly shiny. I was a little worried that since the hands are so small I might have trouble reading it but I feel like know that I see it in person it's very easy to read still. It's a perfect unique watch that isn't too ostentatious. I have a fairly small wrist and it doesn't feel overpowering."
"I don't know if I can really express how much I love this watch. I'm not a person who wears watches but decided to give it a try. The band is wayyyyyy nicer than I expected for a watch at this price. Its stiffer underneath but feels like micro fiber on top of the strap. Has been keeping time accurately since I set it. And I love the overall look. I'll def buy in other colors."
STARKLING Hollow Quartz Watch With Leather Band, $17.98, available at Amazon
Portable Bluetooth Speaker
This rose-gold tech accessory is equal parts sleek, durable, and LOUD — a.k.a., the mom-trifecta.
Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars, and 403 reviews
Review: "Love this little speaker. I can obviously connect by Bluetooth and play music from my phone. I can even connect it directly to my old school mp3 player and play music. If a call comes through while it's connected to my phone and I'm listening to music, I can talk to the person directly through the speaker. It is a beautiful rose gold color. It gets pretty loud. I have set the speaker on a desk and on top the fridge, and the bass has even caused the speaker to "jump"/move and it fell off so have to be careful. Even with the fall it took from the fridge, it still works great. Small enough to put in my purse too. I love it. Get one."
NUBWO Portable Bluetooth Speaker (Rose Gold), $18.98, available at Amazon

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars, and 43 reviews
Reviews: "I love this little rose quartz tree. It’s adorable and exceeded my expectations. Perfect for keeping and gifting." and "I picked this gift as a twist between a 'tree of life' my mom and I share a love for and crystals which my step dad collects. He said it gave off positive energy and I liked how I could gift it to both of them. It’s pretty heavy, good quality. The base crystal alone was half of my palm, so it’s a great size…all in all, I really thought it was beautiful. I will most likely buy another for my home!"
Top Plaza Natural Rose Quartz Money Tree, $29.99, available at Amazon
