Mother's Day is fast approaching, so if you haven't found a gift she'll love yet, don't panic, we've got you covered! Whether she's a fitness fanatic, foodie, fashionista or someone who loves a little something sentimental, we've found the perfect presents for every type of mom.

For the Mom Who Loves to Stay Active

It doesn't matter if she dominates the court like Serena Williams or just likes to play a match with friends, any tennis-playing mother will love this Convertible Tennis Tote Bag by Tory Sport. The coated-canvas bag features perforated designs for a cool '70s feel and can hold up to two standard racquets, with side pockets to hold a water bottle or tennis balls. The exterior racquet pocket is also removable so she can tote around the sleek bag off the court as well.

For the Mom Who Loves Pampering

Is Mom in need of some quality R&R? Spoil her with an at-home spa day with a gift box from Lalicious. The all-in-one kit from Nordstrom features a sugar scrub, body butter, shower oil and bubble bath and body oil. The soothing lavender fragrance will help turn her house into a stress-free oasis.

For the Mom Who Loves to Cook

Williams Sonoma helps her take the guesswork out of what to cook for dinner with the Best of Italy Gift Basket, which comes with everything she needs to prepare a full-on feast. Each gift set includes packages of fusilli, orecchiette, linguini, parmesan cheese, tomato sauce, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and wine-infused salami. An added bonus: The cute wicker basket can be used for bread once dinner is served.

For the Mom Who Is Style Savvy

Moms who are super stylish are often the hardest to shop for because their closets are already full of the latest fashions. But chances are your mom hasn't yet slipped into these Gucci Princetown Mule Loafers from Neiman Marcus. The classic silhouette ensures they'll stay in style for years to come, while the unexpected pretty pastel color makes the shoes especially unique.

For the Mom Who Loves to Travel

Does your mom travel a lot for work or pleasure? Her next flight will be a whole lot more comfortable with this Sofia Cashmere Travel Set from Neiman Marcus. Each travel pouch is filled with a cashmere blanket and a "do not disturb" eye mask that will help her catch some much-needed Zs. The pouch itself is big enough to fit all of her in-flight essentials and has "bon voyage" embroidered on it for a whimsical touch.

For the Mom Who Loves High-Tech Gadgets

If she loves to stay up-to-date with all the latest tech products, she'll be impressed by Apple's HomePod. The powerful speaker will not only play her favorite music, but it also connects with Siri to become an intelligent home assistant that's capable of handling everyday tasks like checking the weather and making metric conversions for recipes. The HomePod is super easy to set up too — just plug it in and mom's iPhone will automatically detect it and start working.

For the Mom Who Is Sentimental

Sometimes the simplest gifts mean the most. Show your mom how much you love her with a Cathy's Concepts "Best Mom Ever" Silver Picture Frame from Nordstrom. The sleek, elegant frame is perfect for showcasing your favorite memory with your mom and it is sure to pull at her heartstrings (and earn you brownie points!).
