2. You buy something you like, which naturally indicates she will like it [lingerie?], or 3. You quit and purchase soothing oils and such for the bath.
Wirecutter editor Marilyn Ong recommends the Google Nest Hub Max for moms who spend a lot of time in the kitchen—especially those who seem to have everything already. With the Max, your mom can upload family photos to use as screensavers, and she can watch TV shows or listen to music or podcasts while cooking. She can also access all of her favorite recipes—the device has a recipe-search function baked in. In our testing, we found the Max was better than the Amazon Echo Show at walking us through cooking instructions step by step. (And the Max has gesture control, so your mom won’t have to touch the screen with floury hands.)
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.
Presenting presents has now end up being an extremely common affair, whereas initially it was just restricted to celebrations like, marital relationships, birthdays, Christmas, New Year and so on. Today with the development of society and with growing relationships, the frequency of presenting gifts to near and dear ones has increased a number of times.
A lot of folks see a self-heating mug, and think it's the silliest thing you could possibly own. In fact, nearly everyone at CNET who's tried an Ember Mug refuses to have anyone pry if from their hands. It's a great gift idea because it's pricey and something that people generally wouldn't buy for themselves -- and that goes double if Mom loves coffee, tea or hot chocolate. See our coverage of the latest Ember products.
While mom's upcoming vacay plans might have been cancelled/postponed, she can still explore the world through Airbnb Online Experiences — which span cooking, dance, wellness, and entertainment, and more. Is Milano, Italy on her bucket list? She can make her own natural face and body scrubs through a Skincare and Natural Cosmetics Workshop. She can also head over to Singapore for Sound Bathe Meditation with a Singapore DJ, Memphis, Tennessee for Mindful Yoga with Olympic Pole Vaulter, or Sintra, Portugal for The Meditative Art of Forest Bathing. And if you (and the rest of the family) want to join along, you can request a private booking and specific dates. Buckle up, you're going on an adventure.
During the pandemic, the opportunity for enjoying a meal cooked by someone else has been complicated but not eliminated: Outdoor dining persists, limited indoor dining has begun, and, of course, takeout remains a safe, delicious option that keeps all parties out of the kitchen. If you know your mom’s favorite restaurant, grab her a gift card from there. And if you think she’d like to try somewhere new, one idea given to us by Wirecutter editor Tracy Vence is a gift card to Black and Mobile, the first Black-owned food delivery service in the country to deliver exclusively for Black-owned restaurants in select cities (currently available in Atlanta, Detroit, and Philadelphia).
