Birthday Gifts for Her
Headphones make a great gift for mom, and you can’t get better than the beloved Apple AirPods Pro. These upgraded AirPods consistently ranks highly in our testing, providing active noise cancellation, a comfortable fit, and easy setup. Whether mom loves listening to her music or she loves talking to her sister on the phone for hours, these headphones will make a big difference in her daily life.  

Yes—you can give Disney+ as a gift. And if your mom loves singing along with Ariel, is there any greater present you can give her than a subscription to the wildly popular streaming service? In addition to the catalogue of animated Disney films, mom can also watch most films and TV shows in the Star Wars canon, as well as all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Did your mother fall in love with Pokemon GO when it came out? Mine did—she’d spend hours running around and catching new Pokemon for her collection. She may not be out and about playing it much anymore, but I feel confident she’d love having a Nintendo Switch, the easy-to-use console that allows her to play the suite of Mario games and reviewer-favorite Animal Crossing. She can opt for a full system that she can play with others, or the single-user Nintendo Switch Lite that she can keep all to herself.

Giving someone hand cream for the holidays can sometimes feel like a cop-out, on par with a basic, boring candle. But, hear us out on this one from Glossier: It's fast-absorbing and hydrating thanks to ingredients like meadowfoam seed oil and coconut fruit extract, it smells absolutely incredible, and the packaging looks like a chic pink lighter to boot. Your mom will be so thankful to give her hands a little TLC with all the hand-washing she's hopefully doing lately.
Apart from the coffee, tea mugs, another good idea for gifting personalized or cherished gifts is giving her a bracelet. You can either go for the metallic ones that come cheap, or buy the costlier ones made of gold and silver. You can also get a nice pen for your mother, with her name engraved on it.
For a simplified skin-care routine, this two-piece serum set from Circumference can help make things easier. The Pure Balancing Botanical Face Oil is perfect for moisturizing skin and the Vital-C Antioxidant Day Serum is great for whenever your mom's skin needs a brightening pick-me-up. Not to mention, the serums come in recyclable glass bottles that she'll definitely love.

You know what’s fun? Celebrating mom. You know what’s not fun? Cleaning. Help mom save her time (and sanity) by picking up the best robot vacuum on the market—the iRobot Roomba i7+. The i7+ is hands down the greatest robot vacuum we tested, outperforming all its competitors in nearly every category. It can easily map her home, be controlled from her smartphone, and empty itself, which is frankly, magical.

All iterations of the Foreo Luna deep cleanse, but moms who might be a little hesitant about potentially over-exfoliating will be especially delighted with the Foreo Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin. Its silicone touchpoints are 30 percent longer and 25 percent softer than the Luna 2 and operate among 16 power levels, which deliver up to 8,000 pulsations per minute. Bonus: there's an accompanying app with various massage settings designed to firm the jawline, tighten the neckline and cheeks, and treat the eye area. A full charge adds up to a whopping 650 uses, making this one powerful skin-care tool. No wonder it's a Best of Beauty winner.

"Mama Do You Love Me" by Barbara M Joosse: In this beautiful story, there is a little girl who asks several questions till she is ensured that her mother’s love for her is unconditional.

If the girl on your list currently has a solid collection of precious jewelry, get her an elegant wy to arrange it that will fit into any decor with a fashion jewelry wardrobe. For the lady on-the-go, provide her the gift of tangle-free fashion jewelry.
We wouldn’t try to talk you out of getting your mother a gift certificate to a spa, but we would suggest you bundle it together with a DIY spa kit. The Evanhealy French Rose Clay Mask is a delight—if your mom applies it before slipping into a tub filled with Dr Teal’s Soothe & Sleep Foaming Bath, she’ll have the makings of a blissful afternoon. Afterward, she can finish things off with a facial massage using the Kimkoo Jade Facial Roller kit. The best part of this spa kit? The relaxation doesn’t happen just once a year—Mom should be able to find an hour here and there to unwind whenever the mood strikes.
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.

A digital photo frame can serve as a direct link between you and your mother, letting you send new photos directly to her mantle no matter how far away she lives. Our favorite digital photo frame, the Aura Mason is easy to set up, has a sharp, vivid display, and works seamlessly on Android and iOS through a proprietary app. Simply upload your photos through the app (this makes Aura especially good for documenting Little League triumphs and other fleeting-but-important moments you’d like to share), and they’ll show up in the frame. One tip: When you receive the frame, start contributing photos so that when Mom opens the package and powers up the Aura, they’ll be ready and waiting.
