If there's one thing most of us can agree on right now, it's that we're all exhausted. From the bleak news cycle, to the current touch-and-go era of the pandemic, things just feel a bit... heavy.

Thankfully, Mother's Day is coming up on May 8, which gives us all a chance to celebrate our moms or the mother figures in our lives — and nothing feels better than that. But with all of our collective exhaustion, now may not be the time to get your special lady a run-of-the-mill gift. Instead, get her something practical that she will not only love, but truly appreciate.

Find our top nine picks, below.
