It’s almost the most important holiday of the year: Mother’s Day! Moms are the most incredible people on the planet, and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to honor them.

Every mother is a true superhero — raising a child is one of the most challenging jobs out there, and moms make it look like it’s no big deal.

And let’s be honest for a minute: A mom isn’t necessarily just the person who gave birth to you. A mom can be anyone who loves and cares for you. For some people, a “mom” is the woman who gave birth to you, but for others, a “mom” is a grandmother, an aunt, a family friend, a godmother, or a bonus mom.

Anyone can be a mother figure, so this Mother’s Day, don’t forget to celebrate the nontraditional moms in your life.

These 21 fabulous one-of-a-kind gifts are perfect for every “mom” out there!
