As you’re doing all the cleaning, organizing, and decluttering to refresh your home for the spring and summer, remember to give yourself some time to think about not only what you need — like new storage bins — but also what you want. Adding things to your living space that bring you delight and are simply enjoyable is equally as important as getting everything neat and tidy. Some might say it’s even more important!

These Amazon finds cover a wide stretch of prices and range from being practical-yet-desirable to purely fun. There are plenty of unexpected options in here, too, so this year’s Mother’s Day gift will be one they remember for a long time.
