We turned to Christie Maruka, one of New Jersey’s top personal shoppers, to help compile the ultimate gift guide for any mom. “Mother’s Day is a day to show your gratitude towards mom,” says Maruka. “It’s so important to remember her, honor her and thank her for everything she does all year long.”

Here, Maruka shares her top 6 gift ideas for every type of mom:

Mother's Day GiftThe Hipster Mom
“If she is a tea lover and always on the run, taking care of business but needs a moment to recharge, a Tea to Go mug is perfect. She will be refreshed without slowing down!”

The Working Mom
“Give her a wardrobe consultant and closet edit. What working woman doesn’t panic daily and say she has nothing to wear? Treat her to an at-home wardrobe consultation, personal shopping excursion and have her closet cleaned.”

The New Mom Mother's Day Gifts
“This acrylic block bracelet from Charm and Chain is personalized with your baby’s birthdate. It’s the perfect keepsake for any new mom.”

The Traditionalist Mom
One of my personal favorites is perfume. She will love this Dolce & Gabbana “Light Blue” Eau de Toilette Spray. It’s perfect for spring and summer with notes of Smith apple, Sicilian citron, bamboo, jasmine, white rose, amber and musk. They combine to create a scent that is feminine, deep and true.”

Mother's Day GiftsThe Martha Stewart Mom
“Thank mom for her many years of cooking, baking and culinary work in the kitchen with this Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Round Dutch Oven. You may just find it on the stove even when it’s not in use because it’s that nice! It’s also available in great, vibrant colors.”

The Stay-at-Home Mom
“Hire help! Treat her to a day of cleaning and laundry services. Mom deserves a break from the daily grind. This is the perfect way to show you appreciate all she does.”
