If you have not thought of a specific present to purchase for mom's day, do among the following, and I guarantee you will discover a present for your mom:
There are some great gift options out there for moms who love tea. You can grab an adorable tea diffuser or a top-notch kettle, but if you really want to wow Mom this year, get her a subscription to the tea membership club Sips by. Our editor tested this service and raved about how wonderful her tea selection was. As with any food subscription service, there were clear winners and losers, but overall, she enjoyed the variety of teas she got to sample.
Remarkably, lots of ladies do not purchase these for themselves. Made from 100% Egyptian cotton ina incredibly hefty 700 grams available inn 55 colors.
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.
The more pictures you add to your scrap book, the more sentimental and interesting it would become. You can use any pictures of your mom to make the gift more special. Try adding photos of your mom when she was young, when she was pregnant, you with your mom when you were a baby, and of the years of growing up.
For many moms, a handbag is less an accessory and more a utilitarian carryall, fitting in everything a day could possibly need: Band-Aids, sunscreen, extra hair ties, a bottle of water, sometimes even an emergency PB&J. This year, upgrade your own mom’s go-everywhere, do-everything bag to the Cuyana Classic Structured Leather Tote, one of Wirecutter’s favorite tote bags. It’s large enough to hold water bottles or a bag of string cheese while still looking chic. Take it a step further and add a Cuyana Tote Organization Insert.
If you're in a relationship, never purchase "joint-use" gifts unless formerly talked about. Purchasing your sweetheart a 50" plasma TV when you live together may send out the message that the presents is truly for you. Eye shadow and lip gloss schemes that consist of a large range of colors make wonderful gifts for ladies. For the lady on-the-go, provide her the gift of tangle-free fashion jewelry.
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.
Since she hasn't been able to get a proper salon manicure for a while, treat her to a Non-Toxic Manicure Kit from Sundays. The 11-piece set includes a buffer, nail file, hydrating base coat, topcoat, cuticle eraser, nail clipper, cuticle serum, quick-dry oil, wooden stick, a bottle of polish remover, and cotton for removing polish. All that's remaining is a cup of hot tea and a soothing soundtrack — then she would be close to the real thing.
Reasons why you love your mom so much
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.
If you're looking for a thoughtful and beautiful gift for your mom, look no further than this necklace from Bryan Anthonys. Each necklace comes with a heartfelt message that will bring your main lady to tears when she opens the box. The jewelry brand was named after the co-founder's brother, whose young life was cut short, and each piece is crafted with purpose and meaning.
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.
The three-piece, limited-edition Essie Gel Couture Holiday Holiday Mini Kit is perfect for the mom who is missing her monthly or weekly manicures. The colors are also perfect for the holiday season with Chiffon the Move, a sheer and shimmery ivory shade, and Bubbles Only, a deep burgundy. The kit also comes with a clear topcoat to help extend the wear of the polish.
Time for your mom to bask in the glory of her radiant skin after she washes off Honest Beauty's Prime + Perfect Mask or 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask. Depending on what her skin needs, the former is the perfect hydrating pick-me-up filled with shea butter, vitamin E, and superfruits (black currant and strawberry), while the latter does a thorough job deep-cleaning skin and minimizing the appearance of pores using a combination of Jeju volcanic ash, refined white bentonite, activated charcoal, and manuka honey for a conditioning touch. Plus, she gets a cute cactus-and-fauna-themed beauty bag to boot.
If you and your mother love reading books then these can be one of the best gifts that you can give to her. It is a great way to bond with your mother, via a hobby that interests both of you. Your mother might have spend nights telling you about the fairy tales, now it is your turn to gift some really nice books to your mother and delight her on this day. You can cuddle up with your darling mom to read some of the mother-baby stories that you both can read and enjoy. It can be used as a great weekend time pass, and you can enjoy reading the books along with some drinks and snacks.
Precious jewelry Storage
Yeah, it's pricey, but the Bartesian Premium Cocktail Machine is really, really worth it. It can be likened to the boozy version of a Nespresso machine (the capsules are recyclable), making perfectly mixed alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks with the push of a button. To set it up, pour bottles of whiskey, tequila, vodka, and your choice of either rum or gin into the glass holding containers. Pop in one of the freshness-dated, juice-filled capsules and let the machine work its magic. Your mom can become a mixologist in no time.
Fragrance can be a really difficult item to buy as a gift because it is so personal. If your mom hasn't found a signature scent yet, may we suggest this perfume flight from Hermés? The Deluxe Replica Coffret Set's beautifully packaged box comes with miniature sizes of the Dabbers in Jour d’Hermès Eau de Parfum, Eau des Merveilles Eau de Toilette, Twilly d'Hermès Eau de Parfum, and Eau De Rhubarbe Ecarlate Eau de Cologne. She can try them all out and see which is her favorite.
Give mom's hands a little TLC from all the constant hand-washing with this heated Patchology hand and cuticle mask. It uses insulation technology to trap her natural body heat and allow the macadamia oil, shea butter, and rosehip oil to penetrate more fully and deeply into the skin. In just 10 minutes her dry, chapped hands will emerge buttery soft and hydrated — and not to mention, it feels so relaxing.
There's nothing more refreshing than a lavish body wash to uplift the senses and upgrade the shower experience, especially when it's a Best of Beauty clean beauty winner. This Necessaire body wash lathers beautifully and nourishes the body with marula, cacay, and meadowfoam oils, as well as plenty of vitamins, and doesn't come with any unpopular ingredients like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and synthetic dyes. It also comes in eucalpytus, sandalwood, and fragrance-free versions to accommodate her personal scent preferences.
Another great product we see selling out toward the end of the year is the Spanx faux leather leggings from Nordstrom, which many of our on-staff mothers are obsessed with. They boast more than 3,000 reviews on Nordstrom, which isn’t surprising, given that our staffers rave about them every chance they get. She can wear them with a denim jacket or throw them on with a t-shirt—no matter how she styles them, Mom will love these versatile leggings.
Does your mom love the super cozy vibe all year round? Does she also love unique, handcrafted gifts? Then you really should be shopping at The Citizenry (once you start, you won't be able to stop). This particular blanket was handwoven by master weavers in a quiet mountain village in the Peruvian Andes. Each throw takes up to a week to complete and was made exclusively in a fair trade environment.
When purchasing for acquaintances, bosses, and associates who you are not romantically involved with or dating for a substantial time, don't purchase too luxurious a present. Buying a pricey present can send the incorrect message.
Wirecutter editor Marilyn Ong recommends the Google Nest Hub Max for moms who spend a lot of time in the kitchen—especially those who seem to have everything already. With the Max, your mom can upload family photos to use as screensavers, and she can watch TV shows or listen to music or podcasts while cooking. She can also access all of her favorite recipes—the device has a recipe-search function baked in. In our testing, we found the Max was better than the Amazon Echo Show at walking us through cooking instructions step by step. (And the Max has gesture control, so your mom won’t have to touch the screen with floury hands.)
