The hottest trend in house scent is reed diffusers, and the ladies on your list will appreciate your insight. The Voluspa Fragrant Oil Reed Diffuser in Santiago Huckleberry is a reliable present.
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.
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.
Flowers only last for days, but a rosebud and peony blossom–scented candle lasts for weeks. And when you gift not one, but three, candles (of your choosing) in pretty Otherland Mother's Day packaging, we guarantee mom will have her lighter ready to go as soon as she receives the package. You can also gift an individual candle for $36, but $89 for three is a pretty great deal, if we do say so.
What better way to introduce mom to the wonders of double cleansing than with the Best of Beauty-winning Living Cleansing Balm? It's a crown jewel when it comes to removing sebum, makeup, and sunscreen, thanks to grape seed, persimmon extract, and vitamin E. It washes off completely and easily and leaves skin feeling soft and clean. The Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel acts as a follow-up to dissolve sweat and dirt with rice extracts, poly hydroxy acids (PHAs), and green tea. Since Then I Met You is based on the Korean concept of "jeong," which refers to a deep and meaningful connection, it's a perfect gift to show mom just how much she means to you.
If Mom’s decor tastes are more elegant, opt for a minimalist gift that’s as touching as it is cute. She’ll think of you every time she looks at this painting of two penguins from Home Depot. It’s small enough to hang near her desk, but sweet enough to earn its own spot on the living room wall. Either way, she’ll love staring at it and thinking about her sweet child (you).
Wrap mom in the same comfort she gave you when you were a child (and let’s be honest, the same comfort she gives you to this day). A weighted blanket can be great for reducing stress and anxiety, but honestly it’s just comfortable to snuggle under while laying on the couch. Our favorite weighted blanket is the Gravity Blanket. We recommend it for all moms, as they won’t get too hot while sleeping, but they’ll stay comfortable all night long.
If the mom in your life has a garden that supplies more bountiful produce than she can eat, if she’s an avid fisher or hunter, or if she just likes to DIY her snacks, she may enjoy an at-home food dehydrator. Drying food from scratch is a time-consuming endeavor, but it’ll let her control the ingredients that go into her dried foods. Of all the dehydrators we tested, the Nesco FD-1018A Gardenmaster Dehydrator was the best at drying apples, beef jerky, onions, and fruit puree evenly. If Mom could use a little drying inspiration, a great accompaniment is The Dehydrator Bible, which Lesley Stockton (staff writer and author of our food-dehydrator guide) called “a good reference for newbies and seasoned food-moisture-suckers alike.”
