Why not let her zodiac sign do the gift picking for you?

Here are 12 gift ideas for the Mama in your life, based on her birth sign.

1. Aries

Aries moms value their "me time". Indulge your mom with a massage or one of her favorite books to curl up with when it's time for her to enjoy her alone time.

2. Taurus

Tauruses like to teach around the clock and sometimes need a hint to take a break. The perfect gift for a Taurus mom would be a spa day to take her mind off the kids for once.

3. Gemini

Gemini moms are always up on the current trends, tricks, and hacks. Keep your mom up to date by getting her the newest tech gadget for home or work; maybe a robot that can clean up for her for a change?

4. Cancer

Cancer sign moms love being around her family and friends so she can nurture them. Gather a few of her favorite people to have a surprise brunch or lunch with her so she can be nurtured, but still be surrounded by people she loves.

5. Leo

Moms that are Leos love to talk about their kids. Get them a photo album or scrapbook of some of your cutest throwback moments.

8. Scorpio

Scorpio moms can run a tight ship and are often then head honchos at home. Feed their leadership side with an activity that puts them in the driver's seat: figuratively, like at an escape room outing, or literally, like at a go-karting track!

9. Sagittarius

Sagittarius moms love to learn about other cultures. Get her a meaningful mother gift made by artisans in another country or something in a different language!.

11. Aquarius

Aquarius moms like to nurture your children's adventurous sides. Give them a gift that brings back the memories of extracurricular sports or vacations to cool locations!

12. Pisces

Pisces moms like to nurture through food, so the latest kitchen gadget or a kitchen tool she's had her eye on would make the perfect gift.
