Whether she raised you to be the person you are today (even through those rebellious teen years), has simply always given you a mother's love, or she's new to the whole parenting thing, these thoughtful, deeply meaningful, and unique gifts for mom—from a personalized portrait perfect for a mother-daughter present to a pampering foot massager that mom (and dad) are sure to enjoy, to a Meyer lemon tree delivered directly from Amazon—will show her just how much you care about her.

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).
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.

Birthday Gifts for Her
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.
Unless the female that you're purchasing presents for doesn't have a romantic bone in her body then possibilities are that she'll value the two-dozen roses that you ought to be getting for her on her birthday. Absolutely nothing states "I Love You, Hunny" than an excellent, old-fashioned arrangement of flowers and a special treat to go along with it!
There's nothing like a stunning bright red lipstick — Armani Beauty Rouge D'Armani Matte Lipstick in Lucky Red, to be specific — to make an ordinary day feel a little more special. And if red's not your mom's calling, no sweat — there are 14 gorgeous shades to choose from. While the lipstick has a matte finish, the formula is infused with hydrating jojoba and ester oils for a creamy and comfortable wear that won't dry out her lips.
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.

Throughout your life, your mother takes different role to help you and guide you all the way. When you are a little kid, your mother is your angel, when you become a teenager, she becomes your best pal, and when you are an adult she becomes the secret sharer. When ever you were happy, she rejoiced and danced with you. She shared your stress when you had your examinations and she is a shoulder to cry when you had a breakup. In every stage of your life, there is one person from whom you can expect to get unconditional love, and that is your momma.
Has Mom been crushing her fitness goals lately? She's putting in the effort, and now she can effectively track all her hard work with a Fitbit fitness tracker. She'll be able to monitor her steps and activity, plus track her calories burned, heart rate, and sleep. A little encouragement goes a long way, and she'll definitely feel it (and the burn) with this gift.
Whether your mom dreams of Olympic glory or just likes to jog around the block, you can help her make the miles pass more quickly with a pair of Poly BackBeat Fit 3150, the best running headphones we’ve found. They sound great but don’t seal out the surrounding world, so she’ll still be able to hear any nearby cars, bikers, or fellow joggers. The IP57 rating means they can withstand sweat and rain, and the flexible and textured hooks play nicely with both sunglasses and hats.
If your mom loves a good cocktail, but isn't the world's—or even your family's—best mixologist, treat her to these brilliant sugar cubes from Teaspressa, which are hand-infused with spiced cherry, bitters, and other concentrated ingredients. All she'll have to do is add a cube to a shot of booze, wait a minute or two, muddle it—and she'll have herself a delicious Moscow mule, refreshing mint julep, or the perfect old-fashioned.
