Tell Me a Story, Mama by Angela Johnson: In this lovely story, a young girl and her mom together remember the favorite bed times stories that the girl liked listening to as a kid.
There are various ways by which you can delight your mom and make her feel special. This year do something new and prepare a gourmet gift basket for her and put together all that she would like to receive. Making a gourmet gift basket is very easy. You just need to know the person well to be able to prepare a gourmet gift basket. Just choose a nice basket, fill it with nice gifts and add a little love to it, and ornate it to look special. Here are some simple steps that will tech you how to create a nice gourmet gift basket for your mom:
If the wintery weather has your mom dreaming of a tropical vacation, the four-piece Splashy Celebration Set from Sol de Janeiro comes complete with the brand's Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, and Brazilian Crush Body Mist. She'll step out of the shower smelling like coconut. Also, as part of its ongoing initiatives in Brazil, Sol de Janeiro will be making a donation to the Rainforest Action Network to help protect animals at risk in the firestorms in the Amazon Rainforest.

Get your wife a personalized Mother’s Day gift like one of our Photo Tile Plush Blankets or Contemporary Photo Pendant. Your wife does so much to support and take care of you and your children, show her how much you love and appreciate her with one of these timeless gifts for mom.
Unglazed Clay Flowerpot
Gifting hand creams or lotions is never a bad idea, especially when they're as luxuriously-scented as this coconut-oil-infused Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey Lotion, which emits the perfect blend of fruity florals that'll linger long after application. This lotion is inspired by London's Covent Garden early morning market, so she'll feel like she's on an English vacation every time she reaches for it.
Say It With Chocolate
If you buy the women on your list an article of clothes (normally inadvisable), make sure you know her size. You don't want to buy something too little or too big.
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!
Even though hair professionals advise against bleaching hair at home, your mom can still have a bit of (safe) fun with highlights with the Madison Reed Light Works Balayage Highlighting Kit. What makes this fool-proof? The wishbone-shaped applicator ensures the lightening cream creates a perfectly-spaced, natural-looking balayage effect, while the salon-grade toning glaze perfects the tone of the highlights and enhances shine. The kit also includes a Bond Building Cleansing Treatment to use post-highlighting. And did we mention it won a 2018 Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award? Case closed.

Essential oil diffusers are the sustainable cousin of candles, and this wall plug-in from Diptyque is an unexpected gift moms will love. The plug cycle is three hours long, and you can fill the electric diffuser with any one of the brand's signature scents (like Baies or Figuier). Each pod will diffuse scent for up to 40 hours (or the equivalent of three months)—way longer than the burn time of most candles. 
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).
