If your mom is fan of Allure editor-in-chief Michelle Lee, then she probably already knows about this pen-sized NuFace Fix Smoothing Device (it's one of Lee's favorite skin-care tools). The small, but mighty microcurrent gadget instantly targets the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, lips, and forehead, leaving skin feeling smoother and tightened after three minutes.

Sometimes mom needs to turn down the lights, fire up the bubble bath, and light her favorite candle to unwind after a long week. We recommend this highly-rated candle by Capri Blue—the signature blue bottle is enough to capture us right away, but the Volcano blend is among our all-time favorite scents. This is a must-have for any mom who loves to relax.
Love Beauty and Planet is no stranger to Best of Beauty and Readers' Choice awards, and its Smooth and Serene Set includes a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in cream that'll leave your mom's hair looking smooth, frizz-free, and healthy, thanks to ample amounts of argan and organic coconut oil. It also leaves behind a lovely lavender scent and is vegan, cruelty-free, and safe for colored hair. 
Sometimes it’s clear who mom’s favorite child is—and many times, it’s the dog. No shame, though, because there are lots of gifts out there perfect for dog moms and dog lovers. One of the best dog-themed subscription kits we tested this year was the KONG Box, a subscription service from cult-favorite brand KONG. It comes with toys, snacks, and more, and the best part is that it features new products each time, so you don’t have to worry about getting the same rubber KONG toy three months in a row. 
You can choose to create beautiful flower centerpieces made of paper. This can be a great craft making idea to surprise your mom. You can also make a hand crafted photo frame for her. You can frame a nice photograph of your mom in a nicely crafted frame. This would be one of the most precious gifts for your mom and she will cherish it forever. You can also make a nice locket of love, and fit it with a chain, which will hang across her neck, reminding her of your unconditional love for her.
Robes are classic mom gifts, but she’s never had a robe as incredible as the Brooklinen Waffle Robe before. Brooklinen is one of our favorite places to shop for home goods, from towels and sheets to loungewear and robes. We tested the waffle robe and found it to be one of the comfiest ones on the market, meaning mom can relax all day in a stylish, long-lasting, and extended length robe. 
Now that your mom is spending more time at home, she hopefully has more time for a proper morning skin-care routine. The three-piece Ultra-Brightening Essentials set from Kiehl's includes the vitamin C-packed Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, the Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque, and the Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner. Pair with a strong cup of coffee or matcha and she'll look and feel energized to start her day.

Even if your mom is now a senior citizen, you don’t necessarily have to buy slippers and bathrobes for her. A person’s age is determined by how he/ she feels about themselves and not by years or looks. These days the seniors are getting out of the old norms and are redefining their golden years by filling up their retirement with activities and travel. If your mom is not physically fit to travel or enjoy the outdoor activities, may be you can gift her something that can help to better her quality of life.


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. Read our Amazon Echo Show 8 review.
Things that your mom taught you while you were a kid
Busy Phillips and your mom probably have something in common: they're both women who deserve a well-rounded self-care routine. Luckily, Busy has mom covered with Olay's Confident Skin Gift Set, which includes the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream, Deep Hydration Face Serum, Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, and Sensitive Hungarian Water Essence Makeup Remover Wipes. All of these products are so deeply hydrating, thanks to ingredients like vitamin B3, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, and truly fit the Olay ethos of healthy skin.

What’s better than a present you can eat? Whether mom prefers fruit or chocolate or assorted cheeses, you can find nearly every type of edible goody from Harry & David. We tried Harry & David and found that its gift baskets were chock-full of delicious foods that would make any person smile. We were partial to the Moose Munch and chocolate-covered pretzels, but if mom loves fresh fruit, you can’t get better than the classic Harry & David pears. 

Can you imagine the look on your mother’s face when you tell her you got her a cooking lesson from Gordon Ramsay? You don’t have to imagine it if you get her a subscription to MasterClass, a service that offers online celebrity-taught courses on a variety of topics, from cooking to writing. Find mom’s passion (or favorite celebrity) and give her the gift of a lifetime of learning.

My very first recommendation would be to put aside for a few moments the tax and present cost. She has a substantial feline collection of cats statues and I get her a new one each year-- I confess cat lover gifts are simple to discover.


What better way to top off a long, stressful day than soaking in a warm bath with dissolving Naturopathica Sweet Birch Magnesium Bath Flakes? We can't think of anything either. Sweet birch warms and re-energizes the body, while 37 percent magnesium helps relieve stiff joints, sore muscles, and even cramps — in short, it's the perfect relaxation formula for any busy mom.


You can make several slices of cinnamon toast, sprinkled liberally with a mix of cinnamon and sugar. You can also alternatively use vanilla sugar, sugar infused with flavor of vanilla beans to make the dish more special. Add this with soft boiled or hard boiled eggs, served in little attractive glasses or eggcups to make the breakfast look like a treat to the eyes. You can boil the eggs in water for about 3 to 4 minutes, and serve these cooked eggs with a small bowl of salt and pepper. A bowl of fresh fruit is a must to make the breakfast look complete. You can slice a grapefruit in a zigzag shape to add a festive touch to the occasion. Prepare a nice fruit salad and add it to the breakfast plate.
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.
Want an amazing gift mom didn't even know she needed? Check out Baked by Melissa, a small cupcake bakery that quickly became one of our favorite places to order sweets online. You can order mom 25, 50, or even 100 mini cupcakes in fun flavors like red velvet, chocolate chip pancake, Oreo cheesecake, and mint chocolate chip. Just whatever you do, don't expect mom to share. 
Holiday Gifts For The Women In Your Life
If you’ve got the money to spend, it doesn’t get better than the Peloton. This high-end exercise bike has a large fanbase of followers who swear by its fitness classes and bicycle features. One of our editors has had her Peloton for years and still loves using it. If Mom keeps not-so-subtly hinting that she wants her own Peloton, it’s time to make her wishes come true. Plus, the company recently lowered the price, so do you even have an excuse?
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.

Sweet birch warms and re-energizes the body, while 37 percent magnesium helps relieve stiff joints, sore muscles, and even cramps — in short, it's the perfect relaxation formula for any busy 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.
When it comes to running shoes, it doesn’t get much better than Allbirds Wool Runners. We tested the brand’s best-selling shoes and found that they lived up to the hype—they’re soft, comfy, and ideal for the mom who spends the better part of her day running around. Whether she’s completing errands or chasing kids around the yard, the Wool Runners make a great gift option. 

Our favorite is the ThermoPop, which could read temperatures accurately in just three seconds. It’s cute, it’s accurate, and it’s just $34. But if you’re looking to splurge, we highly recommend the Thermapen MK4, which was the fastest and most accurate thermometer we tested and would have been our top pick if it wasn’t so expensive. It’s more than double the price of the ThermoPop, but it’s waterproof, precise, and fast-acting.
Precious jewelry Storage
Has your mom been spending a lot of time watching The Home Edit on Netflix? If so, she is probably itching for some organization in her life. Open Spaces, a home brand launched in January 2020, has fantastic gift options like these nesting trays that give rings and keys a place to be. They come in three colorways (light pink, navy, and dark green) and are made from responsibly sourced materials like recyclable plastic and solid wood ash.

Why not give your mom the best of the best? More specifically, why not give her an Allure Best of Beauty winner? Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil is a perfect blend of Spanish sweet almond oil, Moroccan argan oil, and Spanish apricot seed oil to boost the skin's moisture barrier. It's also free of parabens and sulfates. She can dab a few drops on the peaks of her cheekbones as a moisturizing, no-makeup highlighter for when she's lounging around the house.

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.
They say “time flies when you’re having fun” but when you’re a parent, it seems to go by even faster. Before you know it, you’re shopping for a Mother’s Day gift for your daughter, in addition to your wife and mother. Our Baby Acrylic Photo Block is the perfect way to celebrate your newborn grandson or granddaughter. Send a Family Circle of Love Birthstone Necklace or other piece of mom jewelry holding the names and stones of all her children. Now that your little princess has grown into a woman, let her know how proud you are of the mother she has become with one of these touching gifts.
The recycled glass bottle locket is earth friendly and ideal for a niece, child, or teenager on your list.
When purchasing for acquaintances, bosses, and associates who you are not romantically involved with or dating for a substantial time, don't purchase too luxurious a present. Buying a pricey present can send the incorrect message.

Tips For Celebrating A Wonderful Mother’s Day
Throughout her life, your mother has made many sacrifices for you and has done a lot to keep you happy. Creating a scrap book is the best way in which you can appreciate all that she has done for you. You can start by describing your mother. Some of the things that this may include are:

Fragrance can be a really difficult item to buy as a gift because it is so personal. If your mom hasn't found a signature scent yet, may we suggest this perfume flight from Hermés? The Deluxe Replica Coffret Set's beautifully packaged box comes with miniature sizes of the Dabbers in Jour d’Hermès Eau de Parfum, Eau des Merveilles Eau de Toilette, Twilly d'Hermès Eau de Parfum, and Eau De Rhubarbe Ecarlate Eau de Cologne. She can try them all out and see which is her favorite.
Surprise Your Mom By Giving Gourmet Gifts
Great Smelling Candles
You can add your own special thoughts about your Mother. This would make your scrapbook really sentimental and a much nicer gift. Here are some of the things that you can write in your scrapbook:
Entire markets have actually been set up around males inability to consider excellent gift ideas for females. Next time you are the shopping mall, take a look at the "bubble bath" stores. While you struggle of whether to go with the peach scents or the lavender skin conservator, you need to try to keep in mind what such gifts state to her. 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!
Presenting presents has now end up being a very typical affair, whereas initially it was simply limited to occasions like, marriages, birthdays, Christmas, New Year etc. Today with the growth of society and with growing relationships, the frequency of presenting presents to near and dear ones has actually increased numerous times.

Make Easy Crafts For Your Mother

"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. The girl realizes that even if she turns into a walrus, or a musk ox, her mother will still continue to lover her throughout her life. This is a timeless story when the child tests the limits and her mother reassures that her parent’s love is forever.
No matter where your mom's tastes or beauty needs lie — or if you don't know exactly what those are, because we know moms are notoriously hard to shop for — we've found a gift that'll make her go heart eyes. And we've taken your budget into consideration as well. We've got affordable (an Honest Beauty mask set), mid-range (a Winc subscription), and high-end (the Dyson hair-dryer) options for your gift-giving consideration.

The kit also comes with a clear topcoat to help extend the wear of the polish.
