Tell Me a Story, Mama by Angela Johnson: In this lovely story, a young girl and her mom together remember the favorite bed times stories that the girl liked listening to as a kid.
If your mom needs to use her phone while on winter outings, keep her hands warm and stylish with a pair of Kent Wang Deerskin Gloves. After testing a variety of touchscreen gloves, we’ve found that many tend to look bulky and unsophisticated; if they do look good, they don’t necessarily work well on a phone’s interface. The Kent Wang gloves, however, check all the boxes, thanks to above-average touchscreen accuracy, a classic design, and a super-warm cashmere lining.
If you have ever experienced the ravings of the lady that you like since her birthday in some way slipped your mind then you know the advantage of being prepared with a present well in advance of that unique date!
While moms may not always admit it, they love when their kids get personal when it comes to holiday presents. After all, who doesn't fancy the feeling of opening up a gift that you can clearly tell had a ton of thought and care put into it? It doesn't have to be anything expensive either: Simply think about your mom's lifestyle and her likes and dislikes, land on a budget for yourself, and go from there.
Look inside any bathroom cabinet and chances are you'll find at least one Cetaphil product hanging around. Your mom will appreciate the re-up of her favorite, no-nonsense products: the Daily Facial Cleanser and Moisturizing Lotion. They're both lightweight, hydrating, and non-greasy staples for those with sensitive skin, but if you deal with eczema or rosacea, you might want to check out the Best of Beauty legend, the Gentle Skin Cleanser.
Mother’s have a world of love for all her children and her presence deeply affects the life of her child. She is the first woman in the life of every child and her place cannot be replaced by anyone else. Though mothers shower the same kind of affection on both son and daughter, it is widely noticed that daughters are more close to their dad, while sons are close with their mothers. The love of a mother always helps a son to stay balanced and strong throughout his life. Where a father teaches him to be strong and fight with the world, his mother tells him the way of living and how to think from the heart.
These Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Foil Eye Masks will make your mom feel like a rich French lady lounging around her estate, but the gold foil also serves a utilitarian purpose and helps her skin absorb the formula — made of glycerin, aloe leaf juice, hyaluronic acid, and calendula extract. Just 10 to 15 minutes with these bad boys on, and the skin around her eyes will appear brighter, less puffy, and more awake.
Vacation Gifts For Women
Items to that you may add
Sitting hunched over a laptop all day can be very hard on the body, especially if your mom's not getting any breaks to get up for a walk. If she is experiencing back pain as a result of working from home, a long bath at the end of the day may help. Drop in a few scoops of the Indie Lee I-Recover Body Soak into a warm bath and the product will literally start to melt away along with (dare we say) her troubles.
Backyard fire pits have been a keystone for social activity during the COVID-19 era -- and this is the best of them, hands-down. Built from durable stainless steel, and with a vented design that promotes air flow, the Solo Stove produces a beautiful and deeply warming fire with very little smoke or airborne ash. (Perhaps best of all, your clothes do not reek of smoke the morning after.) Available in three sizes and prices, this is a slam dunk holiday gift if Mom likes hanging out in the backyard when the temperatures dip.
Great Smelling Candles
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.
All Aveeno products are wonderfully soothing when it comes to treating sensitive skin, and its Best of Beauty-winning Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, Positively Radiant Brightening Daily Scrub, and Readers' Choice-winning Daily Moisturizing Lotion are no exceptions. Ingredients like itch-alleviating colloidal oatmeal and hydrating glycerin and soy extract ensure that your mom's skin will feel soft and smooth from head to toe.
Time for your mom to bask in the glory of her radiant skin after she washes off Honest Beauty's Prime + Perfect Mask or 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask. Depending on what her skin needs, the former is the perfect hydrating pick-me-up filled with shea butter, vitamin E, and superfruits (black currant and strawberry), while the latter does a thorough job deep-cleaning skin and minimizing the appearance of pores using a combination of Jeju volcanic ash, refined white bentonite, activated charcoal, and manuka honey for a conditioning touch. Plus, she gets a cute cactus-and-fauna-themed beauty bag to boot.

Birthday Gifts for Her
You can constantly get a set from Bath & Body Works but if you want to go the extra mile, show her you know a thing or two about luxury. The Potter & Moore- Sheer Luxury in Spiced Tuberose & Orchid 4 piece set consists of a gorgeous black leather cosmetic bag embossed with the Potter & Moore print filled with full sizes of Eau de Toilette, Bathing Milk and Triple Milled Soap duo.
Can you imagine the look on your mother’s face when you tell her you got her a cooking lesson from Gordon Ramsay?

Find mom’s passion (or favorite celebrity) and give her the gift of a lifetime of learning.
Mothers come in all shapes and sizes and ages and attitudes. Some moms run marathons, others run companies, and still others run around town, ferrying offspring from their violin lessons to tae kwon do classes to softball practice. Some still have a house full of kids; others are now empty nesters. But these mothers all have something in common: They have at least one person (be it a child, a co-parent, or an admirer) who owes them a great big thank-you, coupled with a thoughtful gift, for everything they do. Perhaps that person is you? If so, it’s time to get on it.
