Fitness-loving mamas rejoice: The new Fitbit Charge 4 is the best of all the fitness tracking devices. Mom will love watching her step count rise as she completes her morning run—and she’ll love bragging about how active she is once she starts seeing her daily stats. Just don’t be surprised if she starts calling you asking you to go on more walks over the next few weeks after gifting it.
There are some great gift options out there for moms who love tea. You can grab an adorable tea diffuser or a top-notch kettle, but if you really want to wow Mom this year, get her a subscription to the tea membership club Sips by. Our editor tested this service and raved about how wonderful her tea selection was. As with any food subscription service, there were clear winners and losers, but overall, she enjoyed the variety of teas she got to sample.
Mother's Day Gifts That She’ll Cherish
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.
I've been using this beautiful Victorinox chef's knife for the past year and it's become one of my indispensable kitchen tools. The blade is fluted, so it won't stick to what you're cutting, and the elegant wooden handle gives it the perfect amount of heft. It's sharp enough to make cutting meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and cheeses an absolute pleasure.
There's only one word to describe the watercolor-inspired packaging and the trio of products that make up the Tatcha Kakitsubata Brightening Set: dreamy. Following cleansing and toning, The Essence, Violet-C Brightening Serum, and Violet-C Radiance Mask will plump, brighten, and gently exfoliate skin with the help of Japanese superfoods (green tea, rice, and algae), fruits, and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).
We've preached ad nauseam about the new makeup trends in this work-from-home world. It seems like nearly everyone is shifting towards wearing less makeup for their day-to-day. However, a touch of hydrating shimmer from this Westman Atelier's Super-Loaded Tinted Highlight is the perfect multitasking must-have to keep us in love with our makeup collection. Wear it on the cheeks, eyes, or all over the face for a natural glow.
Whether she sits at home and reads every night or attends a monthly book club with her ladies, getting mom an e-reader is a great way to ensure she can always keep her book-of-the-month handy. The Kindle Paperwhite is a great gift for the mom who wants to get an e-reader, but doesn’t want to give up her paperbacks quite yet—it’s specifically designed to look and read like a physical book (so she won’t get screen fatigue). Plus, it’s waterproof, so she can keep bringing her books to the pool, beach, or bath.
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.
Your mom has been there for you since day one — literally. After everything you've put her through (temper tantrums, teenage antics, and a handful of questionable life choices), it's a no-brainer that the most important woman in your life deserves to be spoiled with something far more meaningful than yet another scented candle. Before settling on a classic gift (think: basic slippers, cheap lotions, and cheesy coffee mugs), browse through this list of the best gifts for moms, which range in price, personalization, and practicality. Since no one appreciates sentiment quite like your mom, all of these gift ideas are packed with heart, some a touch more than others. Even if you're shopping for the woman who claims to have everything (or at the very least, says she doesn't want any of her sons and daughters to buy her anything), you're bound to find the perfect present that'll bring the laughs, smiles, and happy tears on Christmas morning and beyond.
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.
Just like the breakfast, the morning beverages are also quite a vital part to this special idea of breakfast in bed. This may include a nice glass of squeezed fresh orange juice. You may also alternatively prepare a pot of hot coffee or freshly brewed tea, and serve it in an elegant cup and saucer. To make your breakfast more presentable, add a small vase filled with fresh spring flowers. This helps in adding a charming finishing touch. See the delight in the face of your mom when you present her with this wonderful breakfast in bed.
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!
Items to that you may add
Apart from the coffee, tea mugs, another good idea for gifting personalized or cherished gifts is giving her a bracelet. You can either go for the metallic ones that come cheap, or buy the costlier ones made of gold and silver. You can also get a nice pen for your mother, with her name engraved on it.
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:
If you're looking for a thoughtful and beautiful gift for your mom, look no further than this necklace from Bryan Anthonys. Each necklace comes with a heartfelt message that will bring your main lady to tears when she opens the box. The jewelry brand was named after the co-founder's brother, whose young life was cut short, and each piece is crafted with purpose and meaning.
These Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Foil Eye Masks will make your mom feel like a rich French lady lounging around her estate, but the gold foil also serves a utilitarian purpose and helps her skin absorb the formula — made of glycerin, aloe leaf juice, hyaluronic acid, and calendula extract. Just 10 to 15 minutes with these bad boys on, and the skin around her eyes will appear brighter, less puffy, and more awake.
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.
There’s something special about products the whole Internet can agree on—like the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. This cult-favorite product has more than 75,000 reviews on Amazon, a staggering 60,000 of which are 5-star ratings. We tested the Revlon for ourselves and were as obsessed with it as the rest of the Internet was. If your mother loves her hair as much as she loves you (and saving time), she needs the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer in her life. Bonus: The Revlon works on natural hair, too.
