A Better Way
You can choose to create beautiful flower centerpieces made of paper. This can be a great craft making idea to surprise your mom. You can also make a hand crafted photo frame for her. You can frame a nice photograph of your mom in a nicely crafted frame. This would be one of the most precious gifts for your mom and she will cherish it forever. You can also make a nice locket of love, and fit it with a chain, which will hang across her neck, reminding her of your unconditional love for her.
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).
If mom is tapped into nerd culture, there’s no better gift than one themed to her favorite fandom. Ruggable, who makes our favorite rugs, recently unveiled a line of Star Wars-themed rugs perfect for any home. There are some prominently Star Wars focused, like the Saga White & Black rug, and others that are more minimalist, like the Tie Fighter Houndstooth rug. Whether she likes to show off her fandom proudly or subtly, the line has everything a Star Wars fan could ever dream of.
If you’ve got the money to spend, it doesn’t get better than the Peloton. This high-end exercise bike has a large fanbase of followers who swear by its fitness classes and bicycle features. One of our editors has had her Peloton for years and still loves using it. If Mom keeps not-so-subtly hinting that she wants her own Peloton, it’s time to make her wishes come true. Plus, the company recently lowered the price, so do you even have an excuse?
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.
Holiday Gifts For The Women In Your Life
There’s a reason everyone wants the KitchenAid standing mixer: It’s the best, period. If mom doesn’t own this iconic mixer yet, it’s time to get her one. She can combine baking ingredients, knead bread dough, whisk meringue, and even make her own pasta at home. Plus, there’s a wide range of useful attachments that can accompany her mixer, meaning you’ve got the next five years of gifts planned out for you.
Avoiding the dog home
I've ridden my share of exercise bikes and this one is pretty good: You get a fully adjustable seat and handlebars, pedals compatible with shoe-clips and flats, and a good range of wheel tension. You also get a Polar heart monitor, which makes it possible for you to calibrate your personal effort to each session; it's a standout feature. And the 21.5-inch touchscreen tilts and rotates, so you can use it for a variety of other on-demand Myx classes, ranging from kettlebells to yoga.
The recycled glass bottle locket is earth friendly and ideal for a niece, child, or teenager on your list.
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.
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.
Odds are good that the mothers in your life will be spending some quality time this year out in the backyard or on the patio. Help them extend those outdoor hours well into the evening with a portable fire pit. One of our favorites is the Solo Stove Bonfire, which, when operated correctly, burns wood with almost no detectable smoke. The airflow created by the stove’s double-walled design intensifies the heat of the fire, making it more efficient and less smoky. (We wouldn’t recommend trying it on a fire escape, though—if that’s the only outdoor space she’s got, stick to a hibachi.)
