Yeah, it's pricey, but the Bartesian Premium Cocktail Machine is really, really worth it. It can be likened to the boozy version of a Nespresso machine (the capsules are recyclable), making perfectly mixed alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks with the push of a button. To set it up, pour bottles of whiskey, tequila, vodka, and your choice of either rum or gin into the glass holding containers. Pop in one of the freshness-dated, juice-filled capsules and let the machine work its magic. Your mom can become a mixologist in no time.
If mom already owns and loves a weighted blanket, take it to the next level with a weighted robe, which wraps mom in a layer of comfort as soon as she steps out of the shower. We tried the Gravity Robe, made by the same company that makes our favorite weighted blanket. It only features a weighted collar that may help mom relax as she lounges around the house (so don’t worry—you’re not giving Mom a 50-pound robe she won’t be able to walk in).
When it comes to beauty tools that make life just a little easier, we can't ignore Revlon's Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. Besides saving your arm muscles, this Best of Beauty winner's ion technology means smoother, shinier blowouts, while the nylon tips and tufted bristles detangle and round edges create volume and lift. And it's relatively affordable — this is what we call a win-win.
This gentle, but effective Murad Ready, Radiant, Retinol Kit comes stacked with the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum, Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum, and Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream to help smooth out the appearance of fine lines and to even out skin tone. Besides the common key ingredient, a time-released retinoid, each product also contains hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and marine kelp to keep her skin soothed and plump.
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.
This one is a pricey gift, we know, but for the mama who loves espresso drinks, it’s a gift she’ll use and enjoy for years. After more than 80 hours of research and testing, we think the Breville Bambino Plus makes the best home option: It’s easy to use but makes consistently rich shots and perfectly steamed milk. And with a sleek, compact design, it’ll look pretty in nearly every kitchen lucky enough to have it.
