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.
If for any reason, you can’t be with your mother on this special day then send her flowers, chocolates and gifts to make her feel special.
I've been using this beautiful Victorinox chef's knife for the past year and it's become one of my indispensable kitchen tools. The blade is fluted, so it won't stick to what you're cutting, and the elegant wooden handle gives it the perfect amount of heft. It's sharp enough to make cutting meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and cheeses an absolute pleasure.
These Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Foil Eye Masks will make your mom feel like a rich French lady lounging around her estate, but the gold foil also serves a utilitarian purpose and helps her skin absorb the formula — made of glycerin, aloe leaf juice, hyaluronic acid, and calendula extract. Just 10 to 15 minutes with these bad boys on, and the skin around her eyes will appear brighter, less puffy, and more awake.
Only go for practical gifts if you have a solid, best-friend-type relationship with your mom. Chances are if you look forward to spending time with your mom, she’ll know you bought her that vacuum because you know her current one is too heavy and hurts her back. But if your relationship is strained, you'll avoid more headaches if you just go with jewelry or something flashy.
Different events can be listed when presents are shared. Presenting them with a surprise present while they are dining will be an included reward. The idea of exchanging presents on New Year and Christmas is to wish them a delighted and effective year ahead.
Instead of buying the usual stuff, get something really unusual for your mom. You can add a personal touch to these gifts. The personal touch makes the gifts more interesting and special. It would also provide a distinctive feeling to your mom, and express your love in a special way. In this article, we will discuss about some of the common personalized gift ideas that you can use to make your mom feel delighted.
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.
Think about what your mom likes best, her likes and dislikes. You can base your gift depending on this and make the day really special for her.
The hottest trend in house scent is reed diffusers, and the ladies on your list will appreciate your insight. The Voluspa Fragrant Oil Reed Diffuser in Santiago Huckleberry is a reliable present.
This carryall, the Wellington XL Tote from State Bags, is practically the magic bag from Mary Poppins — it can fit so many odds and ends. Whether your mom needs a new bag for a weekend (and socially distanced) getaway or perhaps just needs a roomy tote that can fit jumbo-size hand sanitizers in every pocket, this one is the way to go. As an added bonus, this bag is made from 45 percent recycled material and can be personalized for your mama.
When it comes to running shoes, it doesn’t get much better than Allbirds Wool Runners. We tested the brand’s best-selling shoes and found that they lived up to the hype—they’re soft, comfy, and ideal for the mom who spends the better part of her day running around. Whether she’s completing errands or chasing kids around the yard, the Wool Runners make a great gift option.
If your mom loves to entertain, give her a gift that'll ensure she's the hostess with the mostess—like this gorgeous set of melamine plates. In addition to being BPA free and fade resistant, they've also earned the ultimate seal of O-pproval. "Gayle's kitchen walls feature interior designer Sheila Bridges's Harlem Toile de Jouy motif; now it graces these dishwasher-safe, made-just-for-O plates," Oprah said when she selected the set for this year's list of Favorite Things.
There’s no such thing as too much yarn. If Mom’s a knitter, she’ll never turn down high-quality skeins (a.k.a. yarn balls) from a top-notch brand like Darn Good Yarn. The company makes ethical yarn and provides sustainable jobs around the world, putting its mission first in all business practices. The yarn itself is cozy, comfy, and easy to work with. As an avid knitter (and Darn Good Yarn fan), I recommend picking up a few skeins of Darn Good Yarn’s multicolor options so mom can choose what she knits with the beautiful shades.
We love a good meal kit. Not only will they allow mom to skip planning out meals for a few nights, but they’ll introduce her to new recipes and ingredients she may not have reached for herself. Our favorite meal kit is Home Chef, which consistently delivered high-quality ingredients, recipes, and instructions each week. Plus, they’ve recently diversified their menu to offer meat substitutes, protein packs, and even 15-minute meals.
Who could turn down a new pair of glasses? If mom wears prescription glasses, consider getting her a stylish new pair she can wear throughout the year. When it comes to glasses retailers, we love GlassesUSA, which sells affordable and chic frames. You can opt for designer glasses, classic frames, colorful lenses, or trendy new options. Either way, mom will love showing off her new frames.
What’s better than a present you can eat? Whether mom prefers fruit or chocolate or assorted cheeses, you can find nearly every type of edible goody from Harry & David. We tried Harry & David and found that its gift baskets were chock-full of delicious foods that would make any person smile. We were partial to the Moose Munch and chocolate-covered pretzels, but if mom loves fresh fruit, you can’t get better than the classic Harry & David pears.

The holidays are going to hit differently this year. Some people will be able to see family, but many of us won’t be able to travel, making the act of gift-shopping even more stressful than usual. What do you buy for your mom during a global pandemic!? To help you find something that feels meaningful, we’ve rounded up 64 of the best Christmas gifts (and Hanukkah gifts, and nondenominational winter solstice gifts) that a mom could ask for. Whether she’s picked up a new hobby like indoor gardening during quarantine, or whether she’s just looking for a something fancy and pretty, you’ll find the perfect present on the list below.
There's a good chance that your mom doesn't want you to spend too much time, money, or stress picking out a great gift for her, so we made sure to include tons of affordable options that you can order at the very last minute. And if you also have your grandma, mother-in-law, or stepmom on your holiday shopping list, many of these thoughtful picks will work for her, too.
Classic options, like silk pillowcases and beauty subscription boxes, make an appearance in this list, but we've also included new and exciting gift ideas for the mother figure you want to surprise. Some of our favorite unexpected finds: a knit weighted blanket in a moody eggplant color, a limited-edition Champagne bottle, and gift sets where everything included is actually useful.
Yes, buying Mom an apron might seem a tad too Leave It to Beaver, but the absurdly comfy Rough Linen Pinafore is good for anyone who spends time in the kitchen, regardless of how much they cook. (Even someone who’s just “supervising” risks being splattered.) A rectangle of fabric with two straps and big pockets, the Rough Linen Pinafore looks less “prissy apron” and more “artsy smock,” but it’s actually really well designed. It’s loose in all the right places, yet it won’t slip around as she moves. When testing the apron, we also liked the two giant hip pockets, which can fit everything from a phone to a meat thermometer to even folded dish towels.
