While there's a lot of hype surrounding Christmas and birthdays, I'd argue that Mother's Day is the most important gift-giving holiday. Just think about how much the maternal figures in your life give to you and others, and it's obvious that this is a day worth celebrating in a big way.

Over the course of my three-year shopping editor tenure, I've researched, tested, and purchased dozens of products, including gifts for all of my loved ones. And to make your Mother's Day shopping a little easier this year, I compiled all of my favorites in one Mother's Day gift hub at Amazon. The special curation features dozens of items I love, well-received gifts, and several presents that my mom and grandmother have raved about for years. And for those shopping on a tight budget, I've shared some of the best ones under $70 below.

Editor-Loved Amazon Gifts

The secret to being a great gift-giver is to be an active listener. Family and friends are constantly dropping hints about what they love. You just have to listen and keep notes on your phone, in a planner, or somewhere else convenient. One thing my mom obsesses over are candles, and Voluspa's array always impresses her. The brand's Sparkling Rose candle combines scents that will remind you of fresh florals and wine, and its vessel is pretty enough to reuse when the wax is gone. My mom repurposes the glass containers to hold flowers or jewelry. And there are plenty of other sizes and fragrances available through the Voluspa Amazon store.

Another past present my mother hasn't stopped raving about is her Amazon Basics enameled cast iron Dutch oven. While I wish my budget could accommodate high-end brands, this alternative offers the look and functionality of pricey Dutch ovens. The versatile piece can be used to bake breads, boil soups, make our family's favorite casseroles, and more. And it's pretty enough to leave out on the counter, too. Dynamic Gear's bamboo cheese board is another gift my mom reaches for all the time. It's her go-to for serving snacks when friends visit.

And you can never go wrong with flowers, which is why Benchmark Bouquets's rose and lilies bundle is always one of my go-to gifts—even beyond Mother's Day. If my mom is having a tough week, it takes just a few seconds for me to send her fresh flowers from my Prime account. This particular arrangement is incredibly fragrant, so it's no surprise that it's Amazon's best-selling bouquet overall.

There are dozens of other thoughtful and unique gift ideas featured in the Real Simple Mother's Day gift hub at Amazon. Start your shopping with these affordable ones below, or head to the gift guide to browse the full assortment.
