4. 10% off: The iconic KitchenAid stand mixer
Dubbed as our all-time favorite stand mixer, the KitchenAid Artisan 5-quart stand mixer is a world-famous baking tool that any mom who adores spending her free time making cookies, cakes or breads galore will geek out over. In testing, we were wowed by this machine for its durable, reliable build, describing it as a “pleasure to use” thanks to its wide array of attachments and impressively quiet motor. According to KitchenAid, it has the power to tackle recipes for up to 72 cookies or four loaves of bread! Currently discounted by $40 in four colors (Aqua Sky, Empire Red, Contour Silver, Milkshake and Matte Dried Rose), it falls from $399.99 to $359.99 with the code. That’s the only deal we could find on a new version of this stand mixer!

5. More than half off: This super cozy robe
If mom’s big on self-care, the Charter Club knit robe will be an awesome present to give her this Mother’s Day. It’s normally priced at $59.50, but you can grab it in hues Dove Grey or charcoal for $29.16 with the coupon code for a total discount of 51%.

6. Down 56%: This summer-ready skincare set
Now that summer is a mere few months away, you’ll definitely want to make sure mom is stocked up on top-rated SPF products to keep her skin protected.

7. A $122 markdown: This much-loved Nespresso machine
If your mother is a bonafide caffeine addict, the Nespresso by De’Longhi Vertuo Next coffee maker will be her new favorite addition to her kitchen. It’s normally priced at $289.99 but is currently on sale for $167.99, saving you a solid $122. While we’ve yet to test out this particular model, we’re huge fans of a similar machine, the Nespresso VertuoPlus by Breville (also on sale for $155.35), dubbing it as our all-time favorite Nespresso maker for its compact size and fast-brewing abilities.
There are a few key differences between the two models—the Vertuo Next, for instance, is manufactured by a different brand, is a bit slimmer than the VertuoPlus and is partially made with recycled plastic for added sustainability. Performance wise, however, they’re nearly identical. Both also have five brewing options, which we liked for versatility. In addition, the Vertuo Next also garnered a 4.8-star rating from nearly 200 Macy’s customers, who noted that it made delicious lattes—“the best coffee ever,” according to one buyer. This purchase also comes with the brand’s Aeroccino3 milk frother ($94.99), along with a Nespresso Vertuo capsules sample pack.

Let’s face it: Almost everyone loves yummy chocolate. Right now, you can nab a Godiva 36-piece gold gift box for mom, once $49.95 and now $34.97 with the coupon code, saving you 30%. The flavors of this delicious collection include milk, dark and white chocolate with the brand’s signature Belgium fillings. It also has a near-perfect rating from nearly 750 Macy’s customers, with buyers raving over the set for its exquisite taste.
