When a girl is at the age of five, she looks at her mother as an idol. Her mother is her goddess and she wishes to imitate her mother in every way. She uses her mom’s cosmetics, wears her heel to feel like her. The girl does everything to look like and imitate her mother. But, as the daughter enters her teenage, she suddenly alienates herself from her mother. She feels like her mother doesn’t understand her at all, and she starts spending more time with her other friends.

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.

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.

Even though hair professionals advise against bleaching hair at home, your mom can still have a bit of (safe) fun with highlights with the Madison Reed Light Works Balayage Highlighting Kit. What makes this fool-proof? The wishbone-shaped applicator ensures the lightening cream creates a perfectly-spaced, natural-looking balayage effect, while the salon-grade toning glaze perfects the tone of the highlights and enhances shine. The kit also includes a Bond Building Cleansing Treatment to use post-highlighting. And did we mention it won a 2018 Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award? Case closed.


Now, you need to let your imagination run wild and think about the various gourmets items that you can buy for the gift basket. You can take ideas from the other gourmet gifts to create you own gourmet gift. Some of the easy to fins and common gourmet items include French and Canadian cheeses, along with exotic coffees. Apart from these, you can also look for some unique ingredients that you can put into the basket. You may add the colorful foil paper and tissue papers for decorating the gift baskets.
Mom's lips may be feeling a little underappreciated since the pandemic broke out and she's not wearing as much lipstick. If that's the case, the three-piece Dream and Wonder set from Laneige is the perfect gift for a little TLC for her pout. She can slather on the hydrating Lip Sleeping Mask in either Berry, Lemon Sorbet, or Mint Choco before hitting the hay. She'll wake up with soft, supple lips, thanks to the shea butter and vitamin C.
Think about what your mom would like to get as gift. A little thinking can go a long way in delighting her on mother’s day. If she loves cosmetics, then may be getting her some nice cosmetics items or a complete spa range to pamper her would be a nice idea. Try to pop in a nicely written poem into the gift basket. She will be really touched by your act of kindness.
While mom's upcoming vacay plans might have been cancelled/postponed, she can still explore the world through Airbnb Online Experiences — which span cooking, dance, wellness, and entertainment, and more. Is Milano, Italy on her bucket list? She can make her own natural face and body scrubs through a Skincare and Natural Cosmetics Workshop. She can also head over to Singapore for Sound Bathe Meditation with a Singapore DJ, Memphis, Tennessee for Mindful Yoga with Olympic Pole Vaulter, or Sintra, Portugal for The Meditative Art of Forest Bathing. And if you (and the rest of the family) want to join along, you can request a private booking and specific dates. Buckle up, you're going on an adventure.
In-between meetings, your mom can learn a new skill virtually with the help of Masterclass. We particularly like the session taught by makeup artist Bobbi Brown, where she shares her expertise in step-by-step tutorials. Your mom will learn how to choose the right shade of foundation, do a smoky eye, and avoid common makeup mishaps. There are also myriad other options taught by well-known A-listers like Simone Biles, Shonda Rhimes, and more.
Females enjoy candles, and it is a proper gift for practically every ladies on your list. A traditional choice: Diptyque-Limited Edition Parfumee Encens Candle.
Bath Gift Sets
Once Mom becomes an empty nester, she'll want to feel connected to the whole family more than ever. If she could, she would probably fill up the whole house with pictures of the kids and grandkids, but let's do her one better with a digital photo frame. Keeping all her favorites in one place, this pick from Aluratek has a 7-inch LCD screen, surrounded by a wooden frame to show off photos in a slideshow format for everyone to see. 
This SkinCeuticals serum basically needs no introduction, since it's a three-time Best of Beauty winner and a well-known favorite amongst top dermatologists and Allure readers. Why? It's packed with 15 percent pure vitamin C, 1 percent vitamin E, and 0.5 percent ferulic acid to "help dramatically with the improvement of fine lines, skin firmness, and overall brightening," says  Shereene Idriss, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. 
In an era of toilet paper shortages, a bidet is a sound investment. This unique gift is also a healthier and potentially more sustainable alternative to paper goods. There's much to recommend about the Omigo. Importantly, it's dead simple to install; I'm not much of a plumber and it took me under 45 minutes to get it up and running, with zero issues.
Great Smelling Candles
All iterations of the Foreo Luna deep cleanse, but moms who might be a little hesitant about potentially over-exfoliating will be especially delighted with the Foreo Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin. Its silicone touchpoints are 30 percent longer and 25 percent softer than the Luna 2 and operate among 16 power levels, which deliver up to 8,000 pulsations per minute. Bonus: there's an accompanying app with various massage settings designed to firm the jawline, tighten the neckline and cheeks, and treat the eye area. A full charge adds up to a whopping 650 uses, making this one powerful skin-care tool. No wonder it's a Best of Beauty winner.

There are certainly cheaper smart light options, but the Glow -- a highly portable, rechargeable battery-operated bedtime lamp -- is undeniably beautiful, easy to set up and pleasing to use. My family has two of them, and they've become an instrumental part of the bedtime routine for all four of us (the adults steal from the kids after they fall asleep). 
Cellophane and Ribbon
Picking out a birthday gift for the ladies of their heart is in some cases a little unpleasant and a little difficult for some males around the world. Unless the woman that you're buying presents for doesn't have a romantic bone in her body then opportunities are that she'll appreciate the two-dozen roses that you should be getting for her on her birthday. Everyone enjoys to get present certificates on their birthday to their favorite shop and this is another "winner" in the Gifts For Her category!
As many people are practicing isolation and social distancing during this difficult time and are therefore unable to attend class in-studio, Orangetheory Fitness has launched At Home™ workouts to continue facilitating a sense of global community amongst not only members, but non-members too. These daily workouts are about 30 minutes long, stem from the actual class template that was planned for each day and incorporate household items as equipment and make a great Mother’s Day gift!
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 your mom needs to use her phone while on winter outings, keep her hands warm and stylish with a pair of Kent Wang Deerskin Gloves. After testing a variety of touchscreen gloves, we’ve found that many tend to look bulky and unsophisticated; if they do look good, they don’t necessarily work well on a phone’s interface. The Kent Wang gloves, however, check all the boxes, thanks to above-average touchscreen accuracy, a classic design, and a super-warm cashmere lining.
