Surprise Your Mom By Giving Gourmet Gifts
Another great product we see selling out toward the end of the year is the Spanx faux leather leggings from Nordstrom, which many of our on-staff mothers are obsessed with. They boast more than 3,000 reviews on Nordstrom, which isn’t surprising, given that our staffers rave about them every chance they get. She can wear them with a denim jacket or throw them on with a t-shirt—no matter how she styles them, Mom will love these versatile leggings.
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).
In-between meetings, your mom can learn a new skill virtually with the help of Masterclass. We particularly like the session taught by makeup artist Bobbi Brown, where she shares her expertise in step-by-step tutorials. Your mom will learn how to choose the right shade of foundation, do a smoky eye, and avoid common makeup mishaps. There are also myriad other options taught by well-known A-listers like Simone Biles, Shonda Rhimes, and more.

There’s something special about products the whole Internet can agree on—like the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. This cult-favorite product has more than 75,000 reviews on Amazon, a staggering 60,000 of which are 5-star ratings. We tested the Revlon for ourselves and were as obsessed with it as the rest of the Internet was. If your mother loves her hair as much as she loves you (and saving time), she needs the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer in her life. Bonus: The Revlon works on natural hair, too.

Precious jewelry Storage
If mom already owns and loves a weighted blanket, take it to the next level with a weighted robe, which wraps mom in a layer of comfort as soon as she steps out of the shower. We tried the Gravity Robe, made by the same company that makes our favorite weighted blanket. It only features a weighted collar that may help mom relax as she lounges around the house (so don’t worry—you’re not giving Mom a 50-pound robe she won’t be able to walk in).
Fragrance can be a really difficult item to buy as a gift because it is so personal. If your mom hasn't found a signature scent yet, may we suggest this perfume flight from Hermés? The Deluxe Replica Coffret Set's beautifully packaged box comes with miniature sizes of the Dabbers in Jour d’Hermès Eau de Parfum, Eau des Merveilles Eau de Toilette, Twilly d'Hermès Eau de Parfum, and Eau De Rhubarbe Ecarlate Eau de Cologne. She can try them all out and see which is her favorite.
Scrap booking can be really fun and if you are creative, you can make it one of the most cherished and valuable gifts to give to her. All you need to do is think and plan out the framework of the scrap book before starting to work on it. A scrap book that shows how much you appreciate your mother can be the best gift that you can give to her. You can personalize your scrapbook and make it as special as you want by adding more creativity to it.

If you're in a relationship, never purchase "joint-use" gifts unless formerly talked about. Purchasing your sweetheart a 50" plasma TV when you live together may send out the message that the presents is truly for you. Eye shadow and lip gloss schemes that consist of a large range of colors make wonderful gifts for ladies. For the lady on-the-go, provide her the gift of tangle-free fashion jewelry.
Moms can never turn down cardigans. It’s a fact. They’re sensible, comfortable, and perfect for fighting against drafty air. She can drape the popular Halogen Cardigan over a dress for a casual date-night look, or she can wear it over her loungewear for a cozy evening style. This cardigan gets the thumbs-up from hundreds of reviewers at Nordstrom who say it’s lightweight, gorgeous, and perfectly drapey.
Presents are exchanged on numerous events, a distinct present provided with love, does not only makes the recipient delighted however it also assists in the strengthening of bond.
If mom is tapped into nerd culture, there’s no better gift than one themed to her favorite fandom. Ruggable, who makes our favorite rugs, recently unveiled a line of Star Wars-themed rugs perfect for any home. There are some prominently Star Wars focused, like the Saga White & Black rug, and others that are more minimalist, like the Tie Fighter Houndstooth rug. Whether she likes to show off her fandom proudly or subtly, the line has everything a Star Wars fan could ever dream of.
Sitting hunched over a laptop all day can be very hard on the body, especially if your mom's not getting any breaks to get up for a walk. If she is experiencing back pain as a result of working from home, a long bath at the end of the day may help. Drop in a few scoops of the Indie Lee I-Recover Body Soak into a warm bath and the product will literally start to melt away along with (dare we say) her troubles.
