Some moms like flowers and jewelry. Others, like watching the crew of Enterprise explore unknown spaces and make contact with new species. For the latter, I have the best Mother's Day gifts. After all, they deserve some gifts after all the love they've given.
Lwaxana Troi said it best:
"No parent should expect to be paid back for the love they have given their children." - Timicin
"Well, why the hell not?!" - Lwaxana Troi.
I know you love your mom more than anything in the galaxy, but finding a perfect gift can be hard. So, I'm making it easy for you.
These are the ultimate Mother's Day gift ideas for the best mom in the quadrant.

In My Head, I'm Piloting the Enterprise Mug

It sounds like the perfect night.

If there is an episode that highlights the importance of family in TNG is "The Inner Light". This beautiful pendant will remind your mom of all the beautiful memories your family has created, and how much you treasure them.

If she likes to wear her heart on her sleeve maybe she can wear the Enterprise around her neck. It's another way for her to keep her favorite series close at all times. And, jewelry is more special coming from family.
