We know, ladies are mysterious creatures. But something they share is liking gifts However (yes, there is a caveat when it pertains to offering ladies gifts), they don't desire mixers, self-help books, or mixing bowls.
The Carleen Heart Bandana is an ideal choice for the gifter who likes to add a personal touch. Kelsey Parkhouse, owner of Carleen, recommends embroidering your name or a sweet message inside the bandana’s printed heart. If you’re looking for a way to get a craft-obsessed teen involved in the gifting this year—or you are that craft-obsessed teen—this bandana, which comes in five colors, is a charming and affordable option.
We tested Hunt A Killer this summer, and the first thing I did after reading the review was buy a subscription for my mother. She is obsessed with true crime, and unsurprisingly, she’s now also obsessed with Hunt A Killer. The subscription box allows players to solve a crime, with monthly “episodes” that get the person closer to solving the crime every time. If your mother is just as obsessed with true crime as mine, she’ll be ecstatic to play detective for a few months. 
In-between meetings, your mom can learn a new skill virtually with the help of Masterclass. We particularly like the session taught by makeup artist Bobbi Brown, where she shares her expertise in step-by-step tutorials. Your mom will learn how to choose the right shade of foundation, do a smoky eye, and avoid common makeup mishaps. There are also myriad other options taught by well-known A-listers like Simone Biles, Shonda Rhimes, and more.

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.

The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 is an instant camera that’s fun for everyone, especially moms and kids. They can break it out at parties or bring it on weekend trips to capture those sillier moments, and who can resist the anticipation of waiting for the photos to appear? Our top pick for the best instant camera, the SQ6 cranks out photos just a little smaller than the Polaroids you may remember, producing sharp images with a wide range of tones and pleasing-looking colors. Don’t forget to include plenty of film with the camera, though—once your mom starts playing with this fun gizmo, she won’t want to stop.


Your Thoughts
The ultimate indulgence at the end of a long day? These Oprah-approved, super plush slippers from Vionic. "These slippers aren’t just for shuffling around—with an orthotic footbed, they’re bound to put a spring in your step," Oprah said in 2018 when she picked them for her annual list of Favorite Things. "I slipped them on and thought I was walking on cloud fluff."

The recycled glass bottle locket is earth friendly and ideal for a niece, child, or teenager on your list.

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.

As the holidays method, we are all subjected to a discouraging phenomenon. What the heck should I get for my partner, sis, mother, daughter and so on? We each get to the response in a different way, but it generally can be found in among the list below kinds.


What Mom deserves this year is a weeklong stay at a fancy resort, but she’ll probably have to settle for a really nice bath (unless you can get her that spa weekend, in which case, do that!). For an elevated experience, we love Lush’s bath bombs, the very best we tested. They “explode” as soon as they hit the water, filling the tub with gorgeous, shimmering shades, long-lasting fragrance, and skin-soothing oils—which is to say that the mom in your life will have no need to emerge from the tub until she’s good and relaxed.
