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. 
A woman who has everything has seen it all—and therefore she has very good taste. Enter: French things. These wool-lined slippers from the French company Armor-Lux are oh-so-chic. They'll keep Mom warm and cozy this winter, whether she's putzing around home base or the beach house. (Pssst, they come in men's sizes too if you want to add a pair for Dad!)

This Best of Beauty body-care winner is loaded with squalane, apricot kernel oil, and grapeseed oil and delivers major hydration through misting. But, and a very important but at that, the Kiehl's Creme de Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil dries down quickly, so it never feels heavy or clingy. Your mom's skin will feel velvety smooth and smell like vanilla and almond through the day.

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 newest iPad does it all even better than the previous model. The 2020 model, announced in September, delivers blazing fast performance, a beautiful display and all of the elegance of Apple's operating system. True, it's not the "value" option -- that would be the Amazon Fire -- but it remains the gold standard. Try to find it on sale, though: Last year's version frequently dropped to between $250 and $280 for the 32GB model or $330 for 128GB version, but we haven't seen the 2020 model dip below $300 yet. Read our 2020 iPad review.

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.


If the mom in your life has a garden that supplies more bountiful produce than she can eat, if she’s an avid fisher or hunter, or if she just likes to DIY her snacks, she may enjoy an at-home food dehydrator. Drying food from scratch is a time-consuming endeavor, but it’ll let her control the ingredients that go into her dried foods. Of all the dehydrators we tested, the Nesco FD-1018A Gardenmaster Dehydrator was the best at drying apples, beef jerky, onions, and fruit puree evenly. If Mom could use a little drying inspiration, a great accompaniment is The Dehydrator Bible, which Lesley Stockton (staff writer and author of our food-dehydrator guide) called “a good reference for newbies and seasoned food-moisture-suckers alike.”
