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.
You simply flip it over to turn it on and off, twist it to dim it up or down or shake it to trigger a low nightlight setting. The lamp produces a pleasant ambient glow -- hence the name -- which dims gradually over 15 to 60 minutes. You can control the span (in 15-minute intervals) using Casper's minimalist app. And you can also set the light to come on in the morning -- a reverse nightlight, of sorts -- for a way of waking up that we love.

Program her you care about her sensations with a journal or high-end note pad for writing notes and even wish list. Perfect stocking stuffer for associates, siblings, and nieces.
A Better Way
Fights are very common between a mother and her daughter as there is a wide gap between their ages. The mother always tends to treat her daughter like a kid, which the grown up daughter may not like. However, a daughter learns to be a woman from her own mother. Even after a woman becomes a mother of her own kids, her mother won’t stop pampering her. This makes the mother-daughter relationship very special.
Throughout her life, your mother has made many sacrifices for you and has done a lot to keep you happy. Creating a scrap book is the best way in which you can appreciate all that she has done for you. You can start by describing your mother. Some of the things that this may include are:

Avoiding the dog home
That’s why we’ve done the hard work for you by pulling together a list of useful gifts for older parents for this holiday season, including a key finder when they forget and wine purifier for when they need a glass (or two). We couldn’t leave out ones that are particular to these strange times, of course — like a wireless charger and sanitizer for their phones and face mask rack so they stay organized before going out.
1. Look for present concepts in online boutique. Try looking for: "presents for mommy" or "personalized unique gifts"
Serumkind's five-piece mini gift set is far better than any hotel toiletries that mom would have used during her (now canceled) travels. Each tiny bottle serves a different purpose in her skin-care routine. For instance, the green serum is packed with Iceland Moss Drop, which hydrates and soothes, while the bright blue one is made with niacinamide to smooth and strengthen the skin's barrier against harsh environmental elements.
Thinking outside the box is our specialty, so even if Mom hasn't dropped any hints lately, you can pick up something that's super unique. The ideas ahead are packed with editor favorites, best-selling items from cool companies, and tons more ideas that will boost her self-care routine—and it all starts at just $6! Oh, and don't forget grandma while you're at it!

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.
