If you're in a relationship, never purchase "joint-use" gifts unless formerly talked about. Purchasing your sweetheart a 50" plasma TV when you live together may send out the message that the presents is truly for you. Eye shadow and lip gloss schemes that consist of a large range of colors make wonderful gifts for ladies. For the lady on-the-go, provide her the gift of tangle-free fashion jewelry.

I've been using this beautiful Victorinox chef's knife for the past year and it's become one of my indispensable kitchen tools. The blade is fluted, so it won't stick to what you're cutting, and the elegant wooden handle gives it the perfect amount of heft. It's sharp enough to make cutting meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and cheeses an absolute pleasure.

Calling all children of wine-loving moms: a Winc subscription makes it incredibly easy to discover new, delicious wines of all varieties — red, white, rosé, sparkling, cider, and even vegan — that are actually produced in-house by Winc. All she has to do is take a short quiz about her wine preferences and Winc will curate a few bottles for her every month to be delivered to her doorstep. As a member, she'll also get access to discounted prices, and if she orders four bottles or more, she'll get free shipping. Gift cards are available for one-, two-, and three-month subscriptions. Happy hour just got a little happier.
Smart speakers like the new Echo are great companions in the kitchen or bedroom, but the Show 8 adds a healthy 8-inch screen which can display everything from weather forecasts to streaming videos. This thoughtful gift has a full-fledged Echo smart speaker built-in, too. And yes, the camera has a manual shutter, so Mom never has to worry about being surreptitiously photographed.

If your Mom likes her evening tea, she'll love this Bella tea kettle. Instead of going through the hassle of putting a pot of water to boil on the stove (not to mention the loud cry it makes when ready), all Mom has to do is fill this adorably patterned tea kettle and flip the switch on the side. It'll boil water in no time with 1200 watts of power, which means she can have her chamomile quicker. P.S. our associate editor's mom uses this kettle daily, and loves the patterns!
Mom needs to sit down in front of the TV and zone out like everyone else during these stressful days. And that's why she'll appreciate the TCL Series 6 as a gift: It delivers the best picture quality for the money, and the built-in Roku smart TV system means that she'll be able to stream almost any channel or service (with the exception of HBO Max, for now), so long as she's got a good broadband connection and the requisite subscriptions. Read our TCL 6-Series (2020 Roku TV) review.
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.
