Scrap booking can be really fun and if you are creative, you can make it one of the most cherished and valuable gifts to give to her. All you need to do is think and plan out the framework of the scrap book before starting to work on it. A scrap book that shows how much you appreciate your mother can be the best gift that you can give to her. You can personalize your scrapbook and make it as special as you want by adding more creativity to it.
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. 
Stress is a common reason for back pain, and if Mom tends to have a lot of it, it's time for a massage. A winner of our 2020 Wellness Awards, the oCuddle neck and back massager mimics a shiatsu massage, getting deep into the muscles to alleviate pressure and tension—all from the comfort of her own home. With bidirectional kneading massage heads and a heat feature for improved blood flow, she can target neck stiffness, lower back pain, and upper shoulder strain. 

Just in Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado: This is a wonderful story, which tells children that they are not only loved by their mothers by also by God. In this book, Max Lucado, the author of the book also shares his bed time promises to his kids.
Flowers may not be the most original gift, but the pleasure of receiving a bundle of blossoms is nearly unparalleled. We get a jolt of energy every time we walk through a room and see cut flowers in a vase. Rather than presenting Mom with merely one bouquet, though, why not give her a year’s worth of joy? Our pick for the best online flower delivery service, UrbanStems offers subscriptions of classic or seasonal arrangements that arrive weekly, twice monthly, or monthly. The first bouquet comes with a simple, clear glass vase, but you could upgrade to a hand-blown Aurora Vase from Hawkins New York; it comes in a range of shapes and colors.

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.

What's better than one gift? One gift per month, thanks to an Allure Beauty Box subscription. It's a win-win: she gets tons of well-deserved pampering and you, wonderful gift giver, get a few free self-care products yourself (valued at $102) from brands such as BeautyStat, Slip, Mario Badescu, and Christophe Robin (while supplies last). Time to schedule a spa-inspired Zoom date for the two of you.
Flowers only last for days, but a rosebud and peony blossom–scented candle lasts for weeks. And when you gift not one, but three, candles (of your choosing) in pretty Otherland Mother's Day packaging, we guarantee mom will have her lighter ready to go as soon as she receives the package. You can also gift an individual candle for $36, but $89 for three is a pretty great deal, if we do say so.
Raise your hand if your mom deserves a pampering at-home spa day. Is everyone's hand raised? Good. Then she'll probably want this Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Pro Facial Steamer, which opens up pores and softens the outer layer of skin, so it better absorbs skin-care products. It's basically the lightweight, portable version of, in our opinion, one of the most relaxing parts of a facial — and she'll have it at her disposal every day.
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!) 
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 she needs a full purse to hit the town, but others, mom just needs to carry a few things with her, so bringing a full purse is more work than it's worth. Get mom a classy wristlet for those days where she's just not in the mood for the whole shebang. You can get this bag from Coach in four colors, and it comes highly recommended by hundreds of reviewers. 
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.

Your mom might cry tears of joy when she runs through her hair after using the three-time Readers' Choice winner Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask. This intensive weekly treatment that's chock-full of rosehip, sweet almond and argan oils, as well as vitamin B5 and biotin, is that good at breathing new life into dry, damaged hair. In fact, Allure digital hair editor Jihan Forbes said that her hair "not only had a shampoo-ad worthy sheen, but it also had lots of volume" after blow-drying.
Estée Lauder's S.O.S. Skincare Repair + Glow Essentials Set helps transform dull-looking skin overnight with a concentrated lineup of the Night Micro Cleansing Foam, Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II, Advanced Night Repair Intense Reset Concentrate, and Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery. These product names are fancy talk for effective products made with hyaluronic acid and algae extract to moisturize, caffeine to improve blood circulation, and fruit extracts (watermelon and apple) to exfoliate — so your mom wakes up with refreshed, soft, and smooth skin.
Ever wondered what life would be like if you only had one dish, not 20 cluttering your cabinets? Your mother likely has. Surprise her with the Always Pan, the magical piece of cookware that claims to be eight pans condensed into one. The pan can braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, and boil, which is pretty much anything she’d need to do in the kitchen aside from actually serving food. 
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.

A common rite of adulthood involves the passing down of a well-used Le Creuset casserole dish or saucepan from parents to children who are leaving the nest. (Equally common: said children sneaking a piece or two into a moving box and claiming, “I have no idea how that got in there.”) We say it’s time to turn the tide, starting with Le Creuset’s Signature Enameled Cast-Iron Round French Oven, the upgrade pick in our guide to the best Dutch ovens. It’s large enough for soups and stews, and it makes great no-knead bread, too. Any mom who loves to cook will find herself repeatedly reaching for the Le Creuset throughout the year.
