For any mom that loves to wake up every morning with a few sun salutations, why not treat her to a pair of pajamas that parallel that vibe?

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.

We wouldn’t try to talk you out of getting your mother a gift certificate to a spa, but we would suggest you bundle it together with a DIY spa kit.

Afterward, she can finish things off with a facial massage using the Kimkoo Jade Facial Roller kit. The best part of this spa kit? The relaxation doesn’t happen just once a year—Mom should be able to find an hour here and there to unwind whenever the mood strikes.
For instance, if your mom is a huge fan of traveling and loves skin care, why not get her a gorgeous travel diffuser or miniature serum set? Or, if your mom is someone who always has to have her nails done, an at-home manicure kit is an excellent idea that shows you pay attention to all the little details about her. Whatever it is that makes your mom unique, use that as your starting point and it won't steer you wrong.

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.)
