Wine Chilling Wands, $32 (currently on sale!)

We all know that one lady that wants ice cubes in her wine. Is that your mom?! If it is, this is THE perfect gift for her! And we’re sorry for your embarrassment. But even if she’s not that lady, this is a great little tool to have for a white wine lover. For those of us who like to savor our wine, these chilling wands will keep our drinks cold much longer.

RMS Beauty Bronzer, $28

This bronzer continually gets five stars from beauty experts and everyday consumers alike. It’s just a fantastic product that gives a sun-kissed glow regardless of skin tone, which allows you to slowly build as you put more on. In a gift basket or by itself, this is a great little goodie.

Hygge Box Subscription, $28 – $439

Have you heard of Hygge yet? It’s a Danish and Scandinavian term encompassing a feeling of well-being and contentment  by being present in the moment and appreciating the little things in life. Now, you can’t really buy things to achieve Hygge, so the Hygge box is a little bit like an Oxymoron if you buy it for yourself. But if someone buys it for you…well, then the Hygge can still have a full effect.

Mom will really appreciate all these pieces of happiness that you brought to her. If she’s like most of us, she may have a problem with slowing down, taking time to herself, de-stressing, and learning to prioritize and not get caught up in all the small stuff. The Hygge box includes little treats: hot drinks like teas, cocoas, sweets, and candles. From there, it is further refined by the package that you purchase.

bluPRNT Smartphone Photo Printer, $60

How many times has Mom said, “Please send me that pic!!”? Well now you can give the gift that will probably blow Mama away. With this bluPRNT photo printer, she’ll be able to print photos straight from her smart phone. And you know moms are all about the sentimental moments in print. This will surely bring a smile to her face.

Tip: If you want to really make an impact, print a tester photo from your own phone of a photo of you and your siblings/family/mom and have the photo sitting with the printer when she opens it. You’re sure to win bonus sentimental points.

Peter Thomas Roth is a personal favorite brand (pretty much love almost everything PTR I’ve tried so far), and this is a great way to introduce Mom to a variety of face masks to see what she likes based on her skin needs. Bonus: if she’s having a unique skin moment where she needs particular help for a unique situation, like extra dryness or or acne, she’ll have this mutli-pack on hand.

Zadro Magnifying Sunlight Mirror, $70

Ok, if Mom doesn’t have a lighted mirror, you need to go buy one of these right now. She does not know what she’s missing, and you need to figure out her priorities for her. From makeup application to hygiene to facial maintenance, this thing is a game changer. Seriously, how was Mom trying to get rid of blackheads without this?!

Sweet Secrets Chocolate Pizza, $20

For the mama with a sweet tooth, there’s a chocolate pizza that you get to break apart with a mallet. Both salty and sweet, this 4.5″ heart has layers of semi sweet and white chocolate, broken pretzel pieces, chunks of chocolate cookies, ice cream cone pieces, mini chocolate chips, M&Ms, as well as of heart shaped sprinkles. Such a devilishly delish gift!

Pink Champagne Reed Diffuser, $26

If your mom is anything like mine, she loves anything from Pier 1, and absolutely anything that smells yummy. Reed oil diffusers are a great gift option, because unlike candles, they can just set them out and forget about them. The reeds diffuse a subtle fragrance over an extended period of time, usually months, without having to monitor candles or worry about wax burners. Once their done, you just throw out the reeds.

I love the pink champagne diffuser because it comes with a gorgeous flower rather than just a vase with reeds. Beautiful!

Amazon Echo Show, $230

Alexa is now getting old school friendly. If Mom wasn’t really feeling Alexa because she’s not sure what to ask, or she prefers getting her information online or on TV, this might be a great gift for her. Echo Show can do everything Alexa can, but now she can show you on the Echo Show. Mom can see who’s at the front door and see security cameras, check shopping and to-do lists, watch Amazon Video content, see music lyrics, photos, weather forecasts, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more.

BIO IONIC Powerdiva Pro Style Dryer, $150

If Mom takes her hair seriously, she will LOVE this gift. The BIO IONIC dryer takes dry or damaged hair and generates ionic particles to dissolve the water in her hair, trapping in the moisture. Her do will start looking fabulous.

Free People Mont Blanc Sandals, $168

If Mom is a free spirit, then Free People is a great brand for her to check out. These Mont Blanc sandals are a great combination of boho and clean modern lines. The leather takes a week or two to break in, and after that buyers say they are sooooo comfy.

Poppies Stained Glass Panel, $300

For mom who is an art lover, this stained glass panel is everything. Created by an artisan in Kentucky, this gift is not only giving Mom a stunning piece of art, but is also providing support to an individual artist, hopefully ensuring her continued success as a craftsman.

Note: The piece does not have hooks to hang, as the artist says the piece is meant to be leaned on a window to let the light reflect in. I recommend asking if hooks could be soldered if you know that’s what Mom would want.

Aldo Glendaa Satchel, $60

Um. Seriously. These look like Gucci bags without the price. This is a no-brainer! You just have to choose which bag is Mom. Sophisticated and subtle or pop of preppy and fun?


Jonathan Adler Kissy Face Sugar Bowl, $28

Oh mah gosh! Does Mom have a great sense of humor? Is her kitchen stocked with fun little finds? If so, give her this fab little kissy face sugar bowl by Jonathan Adler, so every time she goes for some sugar she’ll pucker up.

House of Lashes teamed up with Sephora to create this Secret Garden Palette, with both warm neutrals as well as sweet floral cools in this romantic mirrored box that looks like a little music box.
