And we've taken your budget into consideration as well. We've got affordable (an Honest Beauty mask set), mid-range (a Winc subscription), and high-end (the Dyson hair-dryer) options for your gift-giving consideration.
If you and your mother love reading books then these can be one of the best gifts that you can give to her. It is a great way to bond with your mother, via a hobby that interests both of you. Your mother might have spend nights telling you about the fairy tales, now it is your turn to gift some really nice books to your mother and delight her on this day. You can cuddle up with your darling mom to read some of the mother-baby stories that you both can read and enjoy. It can be used as a great weekend time pass, and you can enjoy reading the books along with some drinks and snacks.
There's only one word to describe the watercolor-inspired packaging and the trio of products that make up the Tatcha Kakitsubata Brightening Set: dreamy.

You simply flip it over to turn it on and off, twist it to dim it up or down or shake it to trigger a low nightlight setting. The lamp produces a pleasant ambient glow -- hence the name -- which dims gradually over 15 to 60 minutes. You can control the span (in 15-minute intervals) using Casper's minimalist app. And you can also set the light to come on in the morning -- a reverse nightlight, of sorts -- for a way of waking up that we love. Read our Casper Glow preview.
