Even though hair professionals advise against bleaching hair at home, your mom can still have a bit of (safe) fun with highlights with the Madison Reed Light Works Balayage Highlighting Kit. What makes this fool-proof? The wishbone-shaped applicator ensures the lightening cream creates a perfectly-spaced, natural-looking balayage effect, while the salon-grade toning glaze perfects the tone of the highlights and enhances shine. The kit also includes a Bond Building Cleansing Treatment to use post-highlighting. And did we mention it won a 2018 Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award? Case closed.

Wirecutter editor Marilyn Ong recommends the Google Nest Hub Max for moms who spend a lot of time in the kitchen—especially those who seem to have everything already. With the Max, your mom can upload family photos to use as screensavers, and she can watch TV shows or listen to music or podcasts while cooking. She can also access all of her favorite recipes—the device has a recipe-search function baked in. In our testing, we found the Max was better than the Amazon Echo Show at walking us through cooking instructions step by step. (And the Max has gesture control, so your mom won’t have to touch the screen with floury hands.)
