If you feel personally attacked by the SNL sketch where the cast pokes fun at everyone that gave their mom a robe for Christmas, you're not alone. Although we personally would love to receive a plush robe as a gift, your mom probably doesn't want to fake another surprised reaction when she realizes you got her yet another robe for Mother's Day. And let's face it, the best gifts are the ones they can actually use on a daily basis. So that's where we come in. 

Since we're all about helping you find the perfect gifts to give the people in your life, we did some treasure hunting for you. From chic daily planners and kitchen must-haves to luxe bedding and time-saving solutions, we've rounded up some unique and practical gift ideas that will make your mom's life so much easier.

See below for all the practical gifts that mom will genuinely enjoy opening this Mother's Day.
