Plus, it’s waterproof, so she can keep bringing her books to the pool, beach, or bath.

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.
Grocery shopping is still one of the most time-consuming tasks Mom does week after week. But Walmart’s newest service, Walmart+, makes a great gift for mothers looking for an easy way to get groceries delivered at home. The Amazon Prime rival only costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year, so you can get mom a monthly or yearly subscription, depending on your budget. She’ll be able to get free shipping on both groceries and any number of other products she wants to buy from Walmart, which makes it the gift that just keeps on giving. Just make sure her area is eligible for delivery before ordering.
All of this free time is prime time for a facial massage, and while your mom's clean hands work just fine, why not have her enlist the help of a hexagonal Nurse Jamie Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller designed with 24 tourmaline quartz stones, which warm up as they're rubbed on the skin? It's oh-so-relaxing and might help lift and firm skin with continued use. And if your mom happens to be a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan, this wand is Khloé Kardashian–approved. Shall we say… it's a secret from one mom to another.

When she opens the gift, she'll believe that you actually didn't put much thought into and respond accordingly. This, of course, means there much better be a little box somewhere under the tree consisting of an unusual precious gem or automobile keys!
