Whether she sits at home and reads every night or attends a monthly book club with her ladies, getting mom an e-reader is a great way to ensure she can always keep her book-of-the-month handy. The Kindle Paperwhite is a great gift for the mom who wants to get an e-reader, but doesn’t want to give up her paperbacks quite yet—it’s specifically designed to look and read like a physical book (so she won’t get screen fatigue). Plus, it’s waterproof, so she can keep bringing her books to the pool, beach, or bath.
Picking out a birthday gift for the ladies of their heart is in some cases a little unpleasant and a little difficult for some males around the world. Unless the woman that you're buying presents for doesn't have a romantic bone in her body then opportunities are that she'll appreciate the two-dozen roses that you should be getting for her on her birthday. Everyone enjoys to get present certificates on their birthday to their favorite shop and this is another "winner" in the Gifts For Her category!
If your Mom likes her evening tea, she'll love this Bella tea kettle. Instead of going through the hassle of putting a pot of water to boil on the stove (not to mention the loud cry it makes when ready), all Mom has to do is fill this adorably patterned tea kettle and flip the switch on the side. It'll boil water in no time with 1200 watts of power, which means she can have her chamomile quicker. P.S. our associate editor's mom uses this kettle daily, and loves the patterns!
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.
What gift ideas list would be complete without La Mer? Especially when we're talking about your mother, who gave you life? Helping relieve her dried-out skin seems like a small compromise. And you barely have to do anything. In fact, Crème de la Mer does it all — more specifically, algae extract, glycerin, lime extract, sesame seed oil, eucalyptus leaf oil, and other soothing ingredients to target dryness, redness, and the appearance of fine lines.
A Better Way
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.
Like the rest of us, mom has had a year and she deserves the best—like this diamond quartz watch from Omega. This watch is available for less than $3,000 on eBay right now, backed by its Authenticity Guarantee, which requires all watches to be independently vetted by experts before they make it to your home. This particular Omega watch features a band of diamonds around the rim and a steel band that adds a layer of elegance to any outfit mom chooses to wear.
Forget work from home, it's time to glow from home with two full-sized, brightening Ole Henriksen products infused with vitamin C and banana powder: the Banana Bright Eye Crème and Banana Bright Face Primer.

Just like your parents, this is a power couple for sure.
The test of a mother son relationship comes when another woman enters the life of the son, as a girlfriend or wife. It is at this time that the mother starts feeling really insecure and the relationship is put to test. At this time, the mother should understand that her son has a personal life and not interfere that. At the same time, the son should also assure his mother by saying that she is and will always be the best and no one can take her place. Mothers need to learn to stop holding to their sons and let them go when it is time.
There’s no substitute for high-quality coffee. Reviewer-favorite brand BLK & Bold sells specialty teas and coffees, many of which are available on Amazon and Target. The brand also makes a strong social impact, donating 5% of its profits to supporting at-risk youths. Is there anything better than coffee that both tastes good and makes you feel good?
