Moms are caretakers, career women, supportive friends and the glue that holds a family together. Buying a gift for the mom in your life can be stressful — what gift can possibly express how much you appreciate one of the most special people in this world? Below, we've compiled a list of our favorite gifts for every type of mom (and grandma!), from bakers to sentimentalists.

Even if your child is at the age where a candle isn’t the smartest idea anymore, Mom can still enjoy a blissfully-scented environment with an oil diffuser. Leave it to Urban Outfitters to make a diffuser that's as beautiful as it is effective. Plus, the auto shut-off function is a win for any preoccupied parent.
