I have a small, simple one-zone home, where the thermostat controls only the furnace. Last winter, I bought several different top-rated smart thermostats and installed and tested them one at a time. The Nest was the one I kept. It's a snap to set up and it delivers on the features I wanted: Scheduled temperature adjustment, appealing aesthetics, an intuitive interface and absolute control via iPhone. Add in smart speaker support, and Mom can adjust the temperature from bed during those cold winter nights. Read our Nest Learning Thermostat Third Generation review.

These adorable boots from Ugg are timeless, meaning you can buy them for Mom and stop stressing about getting her something that may go out of style in a few months. They’re cozy, fur-lined, and a warm addition to her wardrobe. These boots are especially great if your mom lives in a colder climate where she’ll have to trudge through ice or snow since they have great traction. 


Essential oil diffusers are the sustainable cousin of candles, and this wall plug-in from Diptyque is an unexpected gift moms will love. The plug cycle is three hours long, and you can fill the electric diffuser with any one of the brand's signature scents (like Baies or Figuier). Each pod will diffuse scent for up to 40 hours (or the equivalent of three months)—way longer than the burn time of most candles. 

Flowers may not be the most original gift, but the pleasure of receiving a bundle of blossoms is nearly unparalleled. We get a jolt of energy every time we walk through a room and see cut flowers in a vase. Rather than presenting Mom with merely one bouquet, though, why not give her a year’s worth of joy? Our pick for the best online flower delivery service, UrbanStems offers subscriptions of classic or seasonal arrangements that arrive weekly, twice monthly, or monthly. The first bouquet comes with a simple, clear glass vase, but you could upgrade to a hand-blown Aurora Vase from Hawkins New York; it comes in a range of shapes and colors.

If your mom uses essential oils to take her yoga session up a notch, ease into sleep, or simply relax through aromatherapy, then she'll appreciate this wooden essential oil diffuser. She can add her favorite oil blends to the base and turn it on a 1-, 3-, 6- or 10-hour timer. The Breathe Essentials Diffuser also emits LED lights that can be brightened or dimmed depending on her mood.  
The newest iPad does it all even better than the previous model. The 2020 model, announced in September, delivers blazing fast performance, a beautiful display and all of the elegance of Apple's operating system. True, it's not the "value" option -- that would be the Amazon Fire -- but it remains the gold standard. Try to find it on sale, though: Last year's version frequently dropped to between $250 and $280 for the 32GB model or $330 for 128GB version, but we haven't seen the 2020 model dip below $300 yet. Read our 2020 iPad review.

While anti-aging products are probably high up there in her skincare routine, one thing Mom might be skipping? A facial spray. Mario Badescu's line of facial sprays are a godsend, rehydrating the skin after it loses water throughout the day. This spray set features the OG rose-infused spray, plus newer favorites like cucumber and green tea, and chamomile and lavender. It'll refresh her skin without messing up her makeup, and she can get back to conquering the world.
Now that nearly every meal is home cooked, an Instant Pot can open up all kinds of new possibilities. This beloved pressure cooker has cultivated an obsessive, cult-like fanbase of chefs who proclaim their undying love and have all but abandoned their slow cookers. It's like a pressure cooker on steroids that can quickly whip up a delicious meal. It's the perfect gift for the busy mom who likes to cook. And this model, the 6-quart Instant Pot Lux 6-in-1 V3, is versatile: It can cook slow or fast, at a low or high temperature, and it has steam and saute settings. Read our Instant Pot Lux 6-in-1 V3 review.
Fragrance can be a really difficult item to buy as a gift because it is so personal. If your mom hasn't found a signature scent yet, may we suggest this perfume flight from Hermés? The Deluxe Replica Coffret Set's beautifully packaged box comes with miniature sizes of the Dabbers in Jour d’Hermès Eau de Parfum, Eau des Merveilles Eau de Toilette, Twilly d'Hermès Eau de Parfum, and Eau De Rhubarbe Ecarlate Eau de Cologne. She can try them all out and see which is her favorite.

1. You see something while searching a website or moving with the herds at the shopping center,
In general, look for out something about the recipient, so that you can acquire a thoughtful gift that she'll enjoy. And whatever you do, do not name a constellation after her.

Raise your hand if your mom deserves a pampering at-home spa day. Is everyone's hand raised? Good. Then she'll probably want this Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Pro Facial Steamer, which opens up pores and softens the outer layer of skin, so it better absorbs skin-care products. It's basically the lightweight, portable version of, in our opinion, one of the most relaxing parts of a facial — and she'll have it at her disposal every day.
When purchasing for acquaintances, bosses, and associates who you are not romantically involved with or dating for a substantial time, don't purchase too luxurious a present. Buying a pricey present can send the incorrect message.
The test of a mother son relationship comes when another woman enters the life of the son, as a girlfriend or wife. It is at this time that the mother starts feeling really insecure and the relationship is put to test. At this time, the mother should understand that her son has a personal life and not interfere that. At the same time, the son should also assure his mother by saying that she is and will always be the best and no one can take her place. Mothers need to learn to stop holding to their sons and let them go when it is time.
Whether she raised you to be the person you are today (even through those rebellious teen years), has simply always given you a mother's love, or she's new to the whole parenting thing, these thoughtful, deeply meaningful, and unique gifts for mom—from a personalized portrait perfect for a mother-daughter present to a pampering foot massager that mom (and dad) are sure to enjoy, to a Meyer lemon tree delivered directly from Amazon—will show her just how much you care about her.

The relationship of a mother and son is delicate and it should always be maintained properly. A son should never take his mother’s love for granted, and at the same time the mother should also understand. Communication is an important key that should always be there in any relationship. For every son, his mother is the best secret sharer. You must ensure that you live up to his expectations so that he always looks up to you as the best person in his life to share all his secrets. 

Once Mom becomes an empty nester, she'll want to feel connected to the whole family more than ever. If she could, she would probably fill up the whole house with pictures of the kids and grandkids, but let's do her one better with a digital photo frame. Keeping all her favorites in one place, this pick from Aluratek has a 7-inch LCD screen, surrounded by a wooden frame to show off photos in a slideshow format for everyone to see.

When it comes to running shoes, it doesn’t get much better than Allbirds Wool Runners. We tested the brand’s best-selling shoes and found that they lived up to the hype—they’re soft, comfy, and ideal for the mom who spends the better part of her day running around. Whether she’s completing errands or chasing kids around the yard, the Wool Runners make a great gift option. 

This one is a pricey gift, we know, but for the mama who loves espresso drinks, it’s a gift she’ll use and enjoy for years. After more than 80 hours of research and testing, we think the Breville Bambino Plus makes the best home option: It’s easy to use but makes consistently rich shots and perfectly steamed milk. And with a sleek, compact design, it’ll look pretty in nearly every kitchen lucky enough to have it.
