There are few gifts better than personalized ones, especially when it comes to mom, who pretty much already has everything she wants. With services like Minted, you can upload your own photos for a calendar and arrange them on colorful backgrounds, then customize your creation for each month. Most calendars also allow you to enter birthdays and important events, so you can help mom actually remember her mother-in-law’s birthday this year.

If your mommy tends to get dry skin in the winter, she is not alone. This moisturizing cream is suitable for use on the entire body, face, and even as a hand cream.

Everyone deserves the best skin, so this gentle protection cream makes the perfect present for mom.
Mom frequently regales you with stories of your ancestors—like that you're related to Abraham Lincoln or your second cousin was a British spy—but help her discern fact from fiction by treating her to one of our favorite DNA kits, AncestryDNA. All mom needs to do is spit in a tube, ship off her DNA, and in six to eight weeks she'll unlock the mysteries of her past, allowing her to view her ancestral roots in the easy-to-use Ancestry interface and potentially find a long lost cousin.
Does your mom always have an essential oil diffuser running throughout the day? Well, then why shouldn't she have one to pack with her when it's finally time for adventures again? Campo's take-anywhere Relax travel diffuser fits perfectly into a cupholder or sits on top of a home office lap desk without taking up too much space. All she needs to do is fill it to the line with filtered water, drop in her favorite essential oil, and plug into any USB port.
Finding a unique gift idea for mom can feel like a lot of pressure; she has done so much for you in your life that you want to honor her with something super meaningful. Just remember, though, that your mom is your biggest fan, you know her better than most people on the planet, and she will likely adore anything that you get her. Although it is satisfying to find exactly the right gift, be sure not to stress about it too much. Once you are relaxed and can start enjoying the shopping experience, the right gift will come to you.
Giving someone hand cream for the holidays can sometimes feel like a cop-out, on par with a basic, boring candle.

Your mom will be so thankful to give her hands a little TLC with all the hand-washing she's hopefully doing lately.
