Did your mother fall in love with Pokemon GO when it came out? Mine did—she’d spend hours running around and catching new Pokemon for her collection. She may not be out and about playing it much anymore, but I feel confident she’d love having a Nintendo Switch, the easy-to-use console that allows her to play the suite of Mario games and reviewer-favorite Animal Crossing. She can opt for a full system that she can play with others, or the single-user Nintendo Switch Lite that she can keep all to herself. 
I have a small, simple one-zone home, where the thermostat controls only the furnace. Last winter, I bought several different top-rated smart thermostats and installed and tested them one at a time. The Nest was the one I kept. It's a snap to set up and it delivers on the features I wanted: Scheduled temperature adjustment, appealing aesthetics, an intuitive interface and absolute control via iPhone. Add in smart speaker support, and Mom can adjust the temperature from bed during those cold winter nights. Read our Nest Learning Thermostat Third Generation review.

We tested Hunt A Killer this summer, and the first thing I did after reading the review was buy a subscription for my mother. She is obsessed with true crime, and unsurprisingly, she’s now also obsessed with Hunt A Killer. The subscription box allows players to solve a crime, with monthly “episodes” that get the person closer to solving the crime every time. If your mother is just as obsessed with true crime as mine, she’ll be ecstatic to play detective for a few months. 
A daughter shares the closest bonding with her mother in the family. This is a bitter and sweet relationship that goes through several ups and downs throughout the life of a mother and daughter. Despite of all the problems, this relationship comes out as the strongest of all.
The ultimate indulgence at the end of a long day? These Oprah-approved, super plush slippers from Vionic. "These slippers aren’t just for shuffling around—with an orthotic footbed, they’re bound to put a spring in your step," Oprah said in 2018 when she picked them for her annual list of Favorite Things. "I slipped them on and thought I was walking on cloud fluff."

There are few gifts better than personalized ones, especially when it comes to mom, who pretty much already has everything she wants. With services like Minted, you can upload your own photos for a calendar and arrange them on colorful backgrounds, then customize your creation for each month. Most calendars also allow you to enter birthdays and important events, so you can help mom actually remember her mother-in-law’s birthday this year. 
Sometime, after the girl matures, in the twenties, the girl again feels that the friend she was searching throughput her life was actually her own mother. She again gets very close to her mother and the relationship grows stronger. This is the real relationship between a mother and her daughter, very complex, yet so simple in nature.
I’m not a mother to any humans yet, but I am a proud cat mother, and I take every opportunity I can to buy them presents—as the cat mom in your life probably does. This year, we tested the Goody Box from Chewy, which is essentially a gift box that’s filled with some of Chewy’s best cat toys and snacks. It’s the perfect gift for any proud cat-loving mom, as she’ll enjoy watching her kittens pounce around all day with their new toys. 
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.
Nothing is more annoying than having to get out of bed to charge your phone. Save Mom the grief with the extra-durable Native Union charging cord that is 10 FEET LONG. She could plug it behind her bed or from a far away outlet and still be able to watch HGTV's Hometown on her phone without a problem. Another cool feature? The weighted knot at the end holds the cord on top of any hard surface, like a nightstand or desk, so she won't ever have to bend down to pick it up again.
Remarkably, lots of ladies do not purchase these for themselves. Made from 100% Egyptian cotton ina incredibly hefty 700 grams available inn 55 colors.
Generally, it is noted that most moms are coffee or tea lovers. This can be one of the best gifts that you can give to your mom. Get a personalized coffee or tea mug for your mother, with her name printed on it. She will just love to use it all the time and will cherish this gift for ever. You can also get some phrases imprinted on the wall of the mug along with your mother’s name. You can decide this depending upon the budget of the gift.
If we were to list all of the wonders and benefits of the Best of Beauty–winning Dyson Supersonic Hair-Dryer, we'd be here all day. But to sum it up, this gorgeous Fuschia tool means shorter drying times, healthier hair, and sleek at-home blowouts to boot. Plus, this set comes with a round brush and detangling comb for extra styling ease. Fair warning: you might become a little jealous of your mom's hair. 
Birthday Gifts for Her
If Mom’s decor tastes are more elegant, opt for a minimalist gift that’s as touching as it is cute. She’ll think of you every time she looks at this painting of two penguins from Home Depot. It’s small enough to hang near her desk, but sweet enough to earn its own spot on the living room wall. Either way, she’ll love staring at it and thinking about her sweet child (you). 
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.
"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.
Presenting presents has now end up being an extremely common affair, whereas initially it was just restricted to celebrations like, marital relationships, birthdays, Christmas, New Year and so on. Today with the development of society and with growing relationships, the frequency of presenting gifts to near and dear ones has increased a number of times.

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. 
Who could turn down a new pair of glasses? If mom wears prescription glasses, consider getting her a stylish new pair she can wear throughout the year. When it comes to glasses retailers, we love GlassesUSA, which sells affordable and chic frames. You can opt for designer glasses, classic frames, colorful lenses, or trendy new options. Either way, mom will love showing off her new frames.  
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!

Mother's Day Gifts That She’ll Cherish
If you wish to gift a book to your mom this mother’s day but are not sure about which one to give then here is a list of possible gifts that can delight her for sure:
The recycled glass bottle locket is earth friendly and ideal for a niece, child, or teenager on your list.

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.


Write some nice poems
Throughout your life, your mother takes different role to help you and guide you all the way. When you are a little kid, your mother is your angel, when you become a teenager, she becomes your best pal, and when you are an adult she becomes the secret sharer. When ever you were happy, she rejoiced and danced with you. She shared your stress when you had your examinations and she is a shoulder to cry when you had a breakup. In every stage of your life, there is one person from whom you can expect to get unconditional love, and that is your momma.

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. 
I've been a committed disciple of Les Mills for years, and can't recommend this membership highly enough. I used to take part in group classes at my gym, but the coronavirus put a stop to that. This spring, we signed up for a home membership, which costs just $15 per month -- or less, if you commit to longer terms -- and gives you on-demand access to hundreds of classes that range from spinning to HIIT to yoga. BodyPump -- my personal favorite -- works all of the major muscle groups using (relatively light) weights and high reps, all choreographed to music.
The Bonding Between Mother and Son

Consider the type of gift. Is a satin bathrobe truly an excellent choice for a female boss? While she might enjoy it, she most likely does not want her subordinates understanding what she uses to bed. Think about how the recipient will translate the present. Would your sister value the belief behind your choice of anti-cellulite cream or a book on how to lose weight? Or, do you desire the woman you've gone on 2 dates with to read into your gift of $3,000 diamond earrings? Lookout, she might anticipate an even larger diamond in the future!

From sweet stocking stuffer Christmas gift ideas for Mom to affordable presents, to more significant, special items she'll fa-la-la-love, we guarantee there's at least one thing here you'll love to wrap up for her.

For the mom who’s curious about her ethnic origins or family background, a DNA testing kit makes a great, informative gift. Our favorite is AncestryDNA, which presents test results in a clearer manner than other services and places its ancestry information in a useful historical context. We do urge you to spend a few moments reading the privacy section in our guide, though, since using even the best DNA testing service involves data and privacy risks. A secondary caution: People occasionally discover dark family secrets. If that wouldn’t shatter your mom’s world, though, we think the ancestral findings are compelling enough to justify the risk.
