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.

Fitness-loving mamas rejoice: The new Fitbit Charge 4 is the best of all the fitness tracking devices. Mom will love watching her step count rise as she completes her morning run—and she’ll love bragging about how active she is once she starts seeing her daily stats. Just don’t be surprised if she starts calling you asking you to go on more walks over the next few weeks after gifting it. 

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.


During the pandemic, the opportunity for enjoying a meal cooked by someone else has been complicated but not eliminated: Outdoor dining persists, limited indoor dining has begun, and, of course, takeout remains a safe, delicious option that keeps all parties out of the kitchen. If you know your mom’s favorite restaurant, grab her a gift card from there. And if you think she’d like to try somewhere new, one idea given to us by Wirecutter editor Tracy Vence is a gift card to Black and Mobile, the first Black-owned food delivery service in the country to deliver exclusively for Black-owned restaurants in select cities (currently available in Atlanta, Detroit, and Philadelphia).
