Potting soil
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.

In general, look for out something about the recipient, so that you can acquire a thoughtful gift that she'll enjoy. And whatever you do, do not name a constellation after her.
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.
Mother’s day is a day dedicated to all the mothers across the world and their selfless love. This is an opportunity when you can tell you mom how much you love her and thank her for all her love and support. There are various kinds of mother’s day gifts available in the shops. You may get one of them for your mom. But, how about gifting her something really special this year, which she will cherish throughout her life?

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.


Wrap mom in the same comfort she gave you when you were a child (and let’s be honest, the same comfort she gives you to this day). A weighted blanket can be great for reducing stress and anxiety, but honestly it’s just comfortable to snuggle under while laying on the couch. Our favorite weighted blanket is the Gravity Blanket. We recommend it for all moms, as they won’t get too hot while sleeping, but they’ll stay comfortable all night long.

Birthday Gifts for Her

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.


Mom may not be in the market for a fancy espresso maker, but she would likely love the opportunity to upgrade her current coffee maker to a more high-quality model. Our favorite drip coffee maker is the Technivorm Moccamaster, which ticks off just about every box you can think of to make the perfect coffee machine: it brews quickly, makes an incredibly delicious pot of joe, and looks good when displayed on the counter. Mom will thank you (and then you’ll thank her every time she pours you a cup). 

If the mom in your life has a toddler and has been yearning for the trail, help her start hiking again—now with her child. Designed specifically for carrying kids over long distances, a hiking baby carrier has a freestanding frame structure, a cockpit for a child, and storage for traditional hiking gear such as food, water, and other essentials. The lightest one we tested, the Deuter Kid Comfort Active SL is made for people who have shorter torsos, but even our 5-foot-8-inch writer said it fit her better compared with other options. It also has a kickstand and an easy-undo harness, so kids can get out for a little mid-trail exploration.


For any mom that loves to wake up every morning with a few sun salutations, why not treat her to a pair of pajamas that parallel that vibe? The two-piece Sunrise Long-Sleeve Sleep Set set from Printfresh is made from 100 percent cotton poplin and is also ethically made. The fabric is perfect for mommas that tend to run a little warm when they hit the hay, but if your mom is an exceptionally hot sleeper, there is also a short-sleeve set in the same pattern.
These adorable boots from Ugg are timeless, meaning you can buy them for Mom and stop stressing about getting her something that may go out of style in a few months. They’re cozy, fur-lined, and a warm addition to her wardrobe. These boots are especially great if your mom lives in a colder climate where she’ll have to trudge through ice or snow since they have great traction. 
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.
