Once Mom becomes an empty nester, she'll want to feel connected to the whole family more than ever. If she could, she would probably fill up the whole house with pictures of the kids and grandkids, but let's do her one better with a digital photo frame. Keeping all her favorites in one place, this pick from Aluratek has a 7-inch LCD screen, surrounded by a wooden frame to show off photos in a slideshow format for everyone to see.
Our favorite is the ThermoPop, which could read temperatures accurately in just three seconds. It’s cute, it’s accurate, and it’s just $34. But if you’re looking to splurge, we highly recommend the Thermapen MK4, which was the fastest and most accurate thermometer we tested and would have been our top pick if it wasn’t so expensive. It’s more than double the price of the ThermoPop, but it’s waterproof, precise, and fast-acting.
Ever wondered what life would be like if you only had one dish, not 20 cluttering your cabinets? Your mother likely has. Surprise her with the Always Pan, the magical piece of cookware that claims to be eight pans condensed into one. The pan can braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, and boil, which is pretty much anything she’d need to do in the kitchen aside from actually serving food.
What's better than one gift? One gift per month, thanks to an Allure Beauty Box subscription. It's a win-win: she gets tons of well-deserved pampering and you, wonderful gift giver, get a few free self-care products yourself (valued at $102) from brands such as BeautyStat, Slip, Mario Badescu, and Christophe Robin (while supplies last). Time to schedule a spa-inspired Zoom date for the two of you.
Sometimes mom needs to turn down the lights, fire up the bubble bath, and light her favorite candle to unwind after a long week. We recommend this highly-rated candle by Capri Blue—the signature blue bottle is enough to capture us right away, but the Volcano blend is among our all-time favorite scents. This is a must-have for any mom who loves to relax.
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.
Whether your mom dreams of Olympic glory or just likes to jog around the block, you can help her make the miles pass more quickly with a pair of Poly BackBeat Fit 3150, the best running headphones we’ve found. They sound great but don’t seal out the surrounding world, so she’ll still be able to hear any nearby cars, bikers, or fellow joggers. The IP57 rating means they can withstand sweat and rain, and the flexible and textured hooks play nicely with both sunglasses and hats.
Vacation Gifts For Women
Gifting hand creams or lotions is never a bad idea, especially when they're as luxuriously-scented as this coconut-oil-infused Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey Lotion, which emits the perfect blend of fruity florals that'll linger long after application. This lotion is inspired by London's Covent Garden early morning market, so she'll feel like she's on an English vacation every time she reaches for it.
Generally, it is noted that most moms are coffee or tea lovers. This can be one of the best gifts that you can give to your mom. Get a personalized coffee or tea mug for your mother, with her name printed on it. She will just love to use it all the time and will cherish this gift for ever. You can also get some phrases imprinted on the wall of the mug along with your mother’s name. You can decide this depending upon the budget of the gift.
Grocery shopping is still one of the most time-consuming tasks Mom does week after week. But Walmart’s newest service, Walmart+, makes a great gift for mothers looking for an easy way to get groceries delivered at home. The Amazon Prime rival only costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year, so you can get mom a monthly or yearly subscription, depending on your budget. She’ll be able to get free shipping on both groceries and any number of other products she wants to buy from Walmart, which makes it the gift that just keeps on giving. Just make sure her area is eligible for delivery before ordering.
The Nemo Stargaze Recliner Luxury Chair is a perfect gift for the outdoorsy mom. Despite its admittedly ridiculous appearance, the Stargaze Recliner—a swinging seat suspended on an aluminum frame that looks like a cross between a hammock and a recliner—is enormously comfortable. (The current redesigned version sits closer to the ground, so this should address complaints about the chair fitting only taller people.) After a long day of wrangling kids, the mom in your life deserves the best seat by the campfire.
Now that nearly every meal is home cooked, an Instant Pot can open up all kinds of new possibilities. This beloved pressure cooker has cultivated an obsessive, cult-like fanbase of chefs who proclaim their undying love and have all but abandoned their slow cookers. It's like a pressure cooker on steroids that can quickly whip up a delicious meal. It's the perfect gift for the busy mom who likes to cook. And this model, the 6-quart Instant Pot Lux 6-in-1 V3, is versatile: It can cook slow or fast, at a low or high temperature, and it has steam and saute settings. Read our Instant Pot Lux 6-in-1 V3 review.
If the girl on your list currently has a solid collection of precious jewelry, get her an elegant wy to arrange it that will fit into any decor with a fashion jewelry wardrobe. For the lady on-the-go, provide her the gift of tangle-free fashion jewelry.
This Bareminerals complexion set has everything your mom needs to create a beautiful base, if she's feeling like she wants a little bit of coverage. The Prime Time Original Foundation Primer helps blur pores and preps skin, while Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Mineral Veil Finishing Powder, and the Beautiful Finish Brush finish the job and give off a natural, luminous finish.
