Even though we're all in hibernation mode right now, that doesn't mean that your mom's hair-care routine should suffer. The three-piece Merry Multi-Masking Kit from Briogeo includes the best-selling Don't Despair, Repair! Honey Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask, a travel-sized version of the four-time Allure Best of Beauty winner Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, and a travel-size of the Gentle, Be Kind Avocado and Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfood Mask.
Sometimes it seems like everyone has gone through a pickle phase at some point in their lives, all the more so in recent months. If this sounds like your mother, maybe it’s time she met The Noma Guide to Fermentation. Co-written by René Redzepi, founder of the Danish restaurant Noma and famed for his innovative pickling techniques, this book is an in-depth guide to fermenting nearly everything under the sun—from vinegars and shoyu to kimchi and kombucha.

Yes, buying Mom an apron might seem a tad too Leave It to Beaver, but the absurdly comfy Rough Linen Pinafore is good for anyone who spends time in the kitchen, regardless of how much they cook. (Even someone who’s just “supervising” risks being splattered.) A rectangle of fabric with two straps and big pockets, the Rough Linen Pinafore looks less “prissy apron” and more “artsy smock,” but it’s actually really well designed. It’s loose in all the right places, yet it won’t slip around as she moves. When testing the apron, we also liked the two giant hip pockets, which can fit everything from a phone to a meat thermometer to even folded dish towels.
Serumkind's five-piece mini gift set is far better than any hotel toiletries that mom would have used during her (now canceled) travels. Each tiny bottle serves a different purpose in her skin-care routine. For instance, the green serum is packed with Iceland Moss Drop, which hydrates and soothes, while the bright blue one is made with niacinamide to smooth and strengthen the skin's barrier against harsh environmental elements.
Consider the type of gift. Is a satin bathrobe truly an excellent choice for a female boss? While she might enjoy it, she most likely does not want her subordinates understanding what she uses to bed. Think about how the recipient will translate the present. Would your sister value the belief behind your choice of anti-cellulite cream or a book on how to lose weight? Or, do you desire the woman you've gone on 2 dates with to read into your gift of $3,000 diamond earrings? Lookout, she might anticipate an even larger diamond in the future!
Most of the senior mothers are very nostalgic about the old Hollywood classics. The age from Cary Grant to that of Greta Garbo, the men were well-groomed and the women were sensational. To a senior citizen, the movies of today aren’t just the same. On this Mother’s Day, gift your senior mother something that gives her delightful instant access to thousands of old movies. You can Gift her subscriptions to Netflix, which is quite easy to register for. You can train your mother how she can herself search for her favorite movies and add them to her favorites queue. If your senior mother doesn’t have the access to Internet then you can make a list of all those classics that she’d like to watch and queue them for her.
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.
Mom may not be in the market for a fancy espresso maker, but she would likely love the opportunity to upgrade her current coffee maker to a more high-quality model. Our favorite drip coffee maker is the Technivorm Moccamaster, which ticks off just about every box you can think of to make the perfect coffee machine: it brews quickly, makes an incredibly delicious pot of joe, and looks good when displayed on the counter. Mom will thank you (and then you’ll thank her every time she pours you a cup).
This won’t take a lot of your time, and your dear mother will love you for having movies come right at her door. She won’t have to anymore drive to the video store in bad weather, or stand in the long lines the next time she wishes to take a trip down the memory lane.
Raise your hand if your mom deserves a pampering at-home spa day. Is everyone's hand raised? Good. Then she'll probably want this Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Pro Facial Steamer, which opens up pores and softens the outer layer of skin, so it better absorbs skin-care products. It's basically the lightweight, portable version of, in our opinion, one of the most relaxing parts of a facial — and she'll have it at her disposal every day.
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.
Busy Phillips and your mom probably have something in common: they're both women who deserve a well-rounded self-care routine. Luckily, Busy has mom covered with Olay's Confident Skin Gift Set, which includes the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream, Deep Hydration Face Serum, Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, and Sensitive Hungarian Water Essence Makeup Remover Wipes. All of these products are so deeply hydrating, thanks to ingredients like vitamin B3, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, and truly fit the Olay ethos of healthy skin.
Even if your mom is now a senior citizen, you don’t necessarily have to buy slippers and bathrobes for her. A person’s age is determined by how he/ she feels about themselves and not by years or looks. These days the seniors are getting out of the old norms and are redefining their golden years by filling up their retirement with activities and travel. If your mom is not physically fit to travel or enjoy the outdoor activities, may be you can gift her something that can help to better her quality of life.
The various things that your mom does for you that you are thankful to her for

A daughter shares the closest bonding with her mother in the family. This is a bitter and sweet relationship that goes through several ups and downs throughout the life of a mother and daughter. Despite of all the problems, this relationship comes out as the strongest of all.
If you’ve got the money to spend, it doesn’t get better than the Peloton. This high-end exercise bike has a large fanbase of followers who swear by its fitness classes and bicycle features. One of our editors has had her Peloton for years and still loves using it. If Mom keeps not-so-subtly hinting that she wants her own Peloton, it’s time to make her wishes come true. Plus, the company recently lowered the price, so do you even have an excuse?
There are few gifts better than personalized ones, especially when it comes to mom, who pretty much already has everything she wants.
