Be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 9th!

    1. A piece of custom heart snapshot photo art that'll get an instant "awwww" out of your mom (and maybe tears) when she opens it and remembers all the good times you've had together.

    You upload 30 images into the heart template and can also change the size and color to really make it your own. After you create your masterpiece, it will take up to 10 business days to arrive — so order by April 26 to ensure it arrives in time.

    Get it from Minted for $29+ (available in six sizes, three colors, and either unframed or framed (with 17 options)).

    2. A Kindle Paperwhite that's thin, glare-free, and – did I mention? – WATERPROOF. That means your mom can read in the bath (game changer). Plus, you could preload some books you know she wants to read to really take the gift to the next level.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I've been an avid Kindle user for the past four years, but when I saw this version, I knew it was time to upgrade. The main selling point is the fact that this one is waterproof. So waterproof, in fact, that it can be in up to 2 meters of fresh water for more than 60 minutes. Plus, it's lighter, has more storage, and the battery lasts for WEEKS. I took this on vacation with me after I got it two years ago, and I was so impressed. I was able to sit on the ledge in the pool and read without worrying about getting the device wet. And I even put it in the water to test, and it still works perfectly (see above!). Plus, I used it every day and didn't have to charge it the whole time I was on the trip.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two sizes, with or without ads, and in four colors).

    3. A wine decanter she'll feel extra fancy using as it aerates her wine to make it taste even better.

    Promising review: "I was a little nervous to purchase this as a gift for someone because it's glass, and I was worried it would arrive broken. However, it was very well packaged and came in perfect condition. It is a really beautiful decanter and anybody that is a wine drinker would love to have this. I am so glad that I decided to purchase. It is larger than I thought it was going to be as well, which is always a nice surprise." —Kaila Knies

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

    4. An absolutely beautiful 14-karat gold-plated necklace with such a simple but nice design — she'll probably wear it every single day.

    gold chain necklace with the word "mama" written in gold

    Promising review: "I received this as a gift and haven't taken it off. It's a beautiful gold and my favorite thing about it is that it doesn't twist. I'm not worried about the clasp coming to the front. Even through showers and changing clothes, it looks great!" —EJW_Wis

    Get it from Anthropologie for $148 (also available in a grandma style) or a similar style from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 14 styles).

    5. A Legacybox that'll make it so easy for her to turn all of her old photos and videos of you growing up digitally so you can all treasure them forever.

    a cardboard box with models holding pictures and a VHS tape on the ground

    I got a Legacybox last year for my parents. We went through all the old photos we had and choose our favorites to converted to digital. We had such a fun time going through all the photos and reminiscing on all the good times. Plus, the whole process was super easy. The box came empty and then we just organized the photos and labeled them, put them in the box, and sent the box back. Then a few weeks later, we got our digital files and all the pictures back. I have them all saved on a Google Drive, so it's super easy to access them. Recently, I needed a baby picture, and I started going through my phone before I remembered I could easily access all of them. My grandma also used Legacy Box last year and also enjoyed the process. After we got the files back, we went through all the photos, and I got to see pictures of family members I've never met. I highly recommend getting one if you have tons of photos in a basement or storage unit somewhere that you want to give a second life.

    Get it from Legacybox for $59.98+ (available in four sizes). Plus, take 50% off with the code HALF.

    Not only is it size-adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candle holder, and extra space for whatever else their cozy heart desires.

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

    12. An Ember temperature control ceramic mug that'll keep your mom's coffee (or tea) warm for hours so she doesn't take a sip of a cold beverage when she gets distracted. It's the little things in life that make it more luxurious.

    You remotely adjust the temperature to get it just right, and you can also select a personalized LED color.

    Promising review: "I don’t often post reviews, but every so often there comes along a product like this. I truly wish I would have gotten this sooner.

    Get it from Crabtree & Evelyn for $60.

    15. A Baggu reusable bag that folds up so small so she can slip it in her bag and have it on hand when she gets to a store that charges for plastic bags. Plus, she'll feel great about helping the environment.


    Promising review: "I keep this bag in my purse, so I am ready at all times to use this instead of getting a store plastic bag. I love that it is washable. Get one to reduce plastic bags in our environment! I highly recommend it!!" —Sharon Heiligman

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in 46 colors and patterns).

    16. Rothy's Mary Jane flats I'll get straight to the ~point~ about — not only are these made from recycled materials, but they're also stretchy, washable, and oh-so-stylish. Your mom will feel like the queen she is in these beauties.

    Promising review: "Since I started using this serum, several friends and colleagues have told me that I am glowing, and it definitely helped with my dark spots that I have from past cystic acne outbreaks.

    20. A subscription to Atlas Coffee Club so she gets new fresh coffee delivered to her door every couple of weeks, meaning she'll feel the Mother's Day love for months.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, atlascoffeeclub / Via

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Kayla Suazo says: "My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it's heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. The Peruvian coffee has this dark, almost chocolate taste to it, so I imagine it would be delicious with a morning sweet treat (maybe I should start eating pie every day?). The Colombian batch, on the other hand, was a little lighter roast-wise but still had delicious notes of rich sweetness. TL;DR: both of them were incredible both in taste and quality."

    Get a subscription to Atlas Coffee Club for $9+ (available in a half bag, single bag, or double bag and shipments every two or four weeks).

    22. A Nespresso Vertuo, which will mean a ~latte~ to her if she's a coffee lover, because she'll be able to make a delicious cup of coffee or espresso in her own home every morning.

    Plus, it comes with a milk frother, so she can make her own lattes and cappuccinos.

    Promising review: "I am really enjoying my new Nespresso machine. I have used it to make regular cups of coffee and also to make lattes. The frother that came with it works great! It makes both hot and cold froth! I also bought a pod holder that you can put the machine on top of, and I’m really glad I’ve got that storage space for the pods. I’ve had my machine a couple of weeks now, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a pod type of machine. It makes way bette- tasting coffee than my previous machine did." —K Dunn

    Get it from Amazon for $180.99+ (available in five colors, plus bundle options with the aeroccino (Nespresso's milk frother) and/or sets of coffee pods).

    23. Or a Bodum pour-over coffee maker made with heat-resistant borosilicate glass and a permanent filter if she's a little more old-school and doesn't need anything super fancy. This device will help her make a delicious cup of coffee, but be warned, it may also turn her into a bit of a coffee snob.

    Promising review: "This is super easy to use, makes a mean cup of joe, and is nowhere near the price of a Chemex. I use mine on a daily basis and would absolutely recommend this product to any of my coffee-loving friends." —Brad Lemons

    Reviewer wearing the long-sleeved and long pants pajamas in dark blue with white trim, white buttons, and a collar

    Promising review: "These pajamas exceeded my expectations by a mile. They're made out of the coolest, heavenly knit material that is just slinky enough. They drape beautifully on my body and don't bind me whatsoever. These are the only pajamas I can sleep in without waking up in the middle of the night and tearing off because I'm bound or otherwise bothered by the bunching of fabric. I kid you not, as soon as I get home from work, I track these down and put them on. They have washed beautifully for five washes and show no pilling. I also love that the waistband is a nice thick elastic. The ribbon came out the week I got them but I'm not taking a star away for that because it was basically decorative. I was going to buy their more expensive designer equivalent, but I won't bother. I love these and will be ordering more soon!" —Sunstar

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99 (available in women's sizes XS-XXL and in 41 colors and patterns).

    26. A tablet dock and utensil holder perfect for your mom who has been pinning a lot of new recipes she wants to try. The stand makes it easy to follow said recipes, and the holder means she can grab the utensil that she needs in .2 seconds flat.

    Promising review: "Where have you been all my life?! LOL Aside from this being absolutely beautiful, it is so functional. I am always taking my iPad into the kitchen when cooking and then trying to prop it up on something. I never bought other items to stand it up on because who wants to waste counter space? This can hold my iPad and utensils without taking up extra room. It also looks great, added bonus." — Stacey Markovitz

    Get it from Stak Ceramics on Etsy for $82.

    27. A set of two blooming tea flowers she can add to her tea for a beautiful (and delicious) drink.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.37, Target for $13.79, Bookshop for $15.63, or from a local bookstore through Indiebound here.

    29. A minimalist watch she'll probably assume you bought from some fancy-schmancy store. You don't have to tell her otherwise! Your secret is safe with me!,

    Promising review: "I ordered this watch not expecting to be blown away because, of the price. Boy, was I wrong! I immediately put on the watch as soon as I opened it up; it fits comfortably and the band wasn’t too small, which I was a little concerned about. I’ll definitely be looking to purchase other styles of this watch. Great buy, especially for the price!" —Jessica Kurry

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    30. An electric toothbrush so chic, she won't even realize how practical a gift it really is — until she starts using it every single day.

    Promising review: "I was randomly looking through my emails and saw there was a sale going on. I’ve never shopped at Levi’s before, so this was my first purchase, and I’m so glad I opened my email that day. When I opened my package, it was nothing but satisfaction! The material is super good and the jacket itself just looks amazing! Best purchase I’ve made by far this year!" —SkyC

    Get it from Levi's for $71.41 (originally $79.50; available in women's sizes XS-XL in four colors and 1X-4X in two colors).

    Tthe clear holder suctioned to the side of the tub with a glass of red wine in it and a hand reaching for it

    It also fits beer cans!

    Promising review: "I 100% — no, 1 million percent — LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!! It adhered to my shower wall and stayed put. It's nice to relax in the shower and have my wine in there instead of on the stand my towels are on. Thank you! I have recommended this to several wine-loving friends!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.85 (available in six colors).

    34. An apron with built-in oven mitts and a conversion cheatsheet in the pocket that will basically work as hard as a sous chef when it comes to helping her in the kitchen.


    Promising review: "I love this apron! I’m a petite 5'3 and get why some similar-sized people may feel it’s too big but I love the way it fits. It’s a heavier weight which makes it feel like a lot on my small frame at first but I don’t mind the extra length and feel very protected. Pot holder pockets still work length-wise for me and I have not gotten a stain or ruined my actual clothing since I got this. Maybe I’m a messier cook than most but other thinner, smaller aprons didn’t provide the same protection. It’s a bonus that it fits my tall husband too." —Caroline F.

    Get it from Food52 for $45 (available in four colors).

    35. A cellphone holder everyone can put their phones in when they get into the house so you can enjoy some family time together and not have your mom say, "Get off your phone" every five minutes.

    Get it from Cades and Birch from Amazon Handmade for $49 (available in seven styles).

    36. A Star Wars cheese board you won't have to ~force~ her to use, because it's just so cool that she'll want to show it off to everyone she knows.

    round wood cheese board with top swiveled forward, showing the inside with cheese tools that fit into holes perfectly, and the etching of a Death Star on top

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 or Target for $39.95.

    The black cylinder HyperChiller with a circular hole in the top with a carafe of coffee being poured into it

    This 12.5 oz cup chills all beverages except carbonated ones. You fill it with water and put it in the freezer for 12 hours before using it. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "This was a gift to me, so I wasn't sure what to expect from it. I've used it countless times to chill room temperature water (and occasionally coffee) and it works like a charm every time! The biggest down side is the amount of liquid it can chill at once. It doesn't hold an entire water bottle, so I end up doing as much will fit, then pour it back into the water bottle, then do it again. This works better than I expected!" —C1

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    38. A hazelnut and coffee candle that'll fill her house with a delicious scent and make it even more of a home.

    Twelves oval-shaped pendents in different-colored stones on cold chains

    You can choose the semi-precious stone based on the mom's birth month or an important month to your family. It features18-karat gold-plated brass and the chain is adjustable.

    Promising review: "This is super cute, a good quality, and a great price! I’ve bought a few of these birthstone necklaces for my friends’ birthdays, and they’ve all loved them." —Melodyava

    Get it from Nordstrom for $60 (available in 11 colors).

    40. An Always pan designed to replace eight pieces of cookware, and look good while doing it. This means she can have a decluttered cabinet and yet still make all the different kinds of food she wants.

    Our Place

    I had this pan on my Christmas list this year, and when I told my mom about it she said, "Well, maybe I want one too." So, she got one for Christmas and has been using it ever since. She loves it and uses it to make so many different things, including steaming veggies and frying eggs. But it can also do more than that. You can braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, boil, and more with this pan. It does the same job as a fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, nonstick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. The spatula is designed with an integrated spoon rest. Plus, the pan is dishwasher-safe and only weighs 3 lbs.

    Promising review: "My Always pan is going to be my new favorite cooking ware. It's super versatile and absolutely beautiful. I love the functionality that it possesses and the versatility range, someone really thought about all the best way to cook with this! Safe, easy to clean, and beautiful to look at! Makes you want to cook more delicious meals all day long!" —Celyn V.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in six colors).

    41. A minimalist pet portrait (in either a line or colorblock style) that's perfect if it's an open secret that the pet is the favorite sibling of the family. This portrait can be customized for the type of pet and add a personalized touch to her home without clashing with all the other decor she has.

    Three pics of the art: one line drawing of a dog, one color-block of a dog, and a line drawing of a cat, all with the actual animals they look like below them

    I fell in love with these posters last year and actually just got one last fall. It arrived SO fast after I placed the order, like in days. And the style is so simple yet chic. I customized the breed, design, and color, but you can also change the orientation and add text (it's super easy to do after you click on the link. They have all the options there to pick from). I did it based on my English Lab who sadly passed in the spring, and then my mom had it framed and hung it in the entryway of her home. It's a nice subtle reminder that she's always going to be part of our family.

    Get it from Animalist for $66+ (available in three sizes).

    42. An AeroGarden so she can grow her own herbs (and even veggies) without having to commit to a big garden. She'll love adding her own home-grown things to dinners *almost* as much as she'll love telling everyone that she grew it herself.

    Reviewer pic of the black Aerogarden on a counter with lettuce leaves growing in it and their hand on one of the leaves, showing how big it's growing

    The Aerogarden includes an herb seed kit with six pods, including basil, parsley, dill, thyme, basil, and mint and a bottle of natural plant nutrients that will last a full season of growth. Plus, it's super easy to use as it will remind you when to add water and plant food. It automatically turns the lights on and off, so even if you don't have a green thumb, you can grow herbs at home.

    Promising review: "I considered purchasing this product during our stay at home orders. I purchased the product on March 25, and I started growing on March 26. As of April 27, I have been impressed with the amount of growth that my tomato plants and basil plants I have achieved. I am so impressed with this product that I have planned on ordering two more for the wintertime gardening needs. No more shopping for fresh vegetables at the store for me with my new indoor garden I will have fresh vegetables, herbs, and spices year-round." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $99.97+ (available in black, white, and sage).

    43. A Skylight Frame digital frame guaranteed to bring a smile to her face as it rotates through all the pictures. Plus, you can give your family the email address to send photos directly to the frame so mom can see updates on how much those cute grandkids are growing every day (granddogs count too!).

    I actually got this frame for my dad a few years ago for Christmas because he's more of the photo taker in my family, but I think it's great as a Mother's Day gift too . He LOVES taking pictures (like used to keep albums and albums before photos were digital), so I thought this would be great for him. It was super easy to set up and connects to WiFi. It then comes with an email address where you can send the photos you want it to rotate through. My parents keep it running all the time. It's a nice way to actually see all the photos you have without them taking up all the walls in your home.

    Promising review: "I can't keep staring at it! As all the memories of the kids and my husband and I go by. It's so much fun to enjoy everything we have done together! This is by far the best thing I have ever purchased. With the kids grown and gone, having them sending pictures directly to the frame so we can see what they are doing makes it fresh and fun as well. It's worth every penny." —Cori S

    Get it from Amazon or Skylight Frame for $159.

    44. A NutriBullet to help her ~whip~ up smoothies (and soups and more!) in a matter of seconds.


    It comes with a 600-watt motor base, extractor blade, 24-oz cup, a to-go lid, a lip ring, and a recipe book. Plus, it's simple to clean. All you have to do is twist off the blade, clean it with soap and water, and put the cup in the top rack of a dishwasher.

    Promising review: "I’ve wanted a NutriBullet for years, and finally got one!! I’ve only used it twice, but it exceeded my expectations in every way!! It comes with a cool quick start instruction page that allows you to use it right away! And it’s not just good for smoothies! It also makes sauces, chops nuts, and grinds granular sugar into powdered sugar. Yes, simple tasks, but I’m just thrilled with it, and it was exactly what I wanted and needed!!" —Jeff & Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $46.78.

    45. A Furbo dog camera for the empty-nester who replaced her kids with a new kid (aka a dog) and can't bear to be away from the pup. This high-tech camera can help ease anxiety (both hers and their dog's) when she leaves them home alone. With livestream video, two-way audio, *and* treat-dispensing, she can make sure the pup is behaving while she's away, or just reward them for being oh-so-cute.


    Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything, so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo, I was awaken several times in the middle of the night by high pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my girlfriend not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment, I am sure he will be overweight and won't be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks, Furbo, your product is awesome, and we all love it!" —Alex Batlle

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99.

    46. An air fryer designed to help her grill, roast, and bake up some delicious food in minutes. It uses "rapid air technology" to cook food evenly and make crispy fries, tasty veggies, and more without using any hot oil.


    And with more than 18,000 five-star reviews, people love this device to roast, bake, grill, fry, with very little oil.

    Promising review: "BEST BEST BEST item ever!! I can't believe how much I love this kitchen countertop appliance. I use this on average once a day, maybe more. It looks beautiful, and you can pretty much put anything in there. Chicken, french fries, steak, roast, you name it; and all without the grease. You can even cook hot dogs; not the most healthy but they come out as you cooked them on the grill. Reheating food comes out much better in this air fryer than in a microwave. The microwave either overcooks or makes things soggy and the food just never tastes the same but not in the air fryer!! The food comes out great! Gotta try it!" —Kathleen

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99.

    47. A Revlon One-Stop Hair Dryer and Volumizer she'll be ~blown~ away with because it's a gift gift that keeps on giving — great hair 365 days a year., Amazon

    This brush has hype with more than 150,000 (!!!) 5-star reviews, and it really does live up to it. The oval brush design smooths the hair and the round edges create volume — leaving you with a salon-worthy blowout at home. It also has two heat and speed settings and a cool option.

    Promising review: "I love this hair dryer!! I bought it because I broke my shoulder and only have the use of one arm. Before my shoulder was broken, I used a very expensive hairdryer and the best brushes. This hair dryer works better than all of my high-end products. I'll never go back. The brush is big and I was concerned that it would be too much for my short hair. It will work great on any length of hair. The bristles grab even the shortest hair and dry it smooth and soft. My hair is naturally curly and before trying this dryer, I'd dry my hair, straighten it and then use hot rollers. I am now achieving the same results with the Revlon dryer. I haven't written a review on a product in years but needed to share my experience with this dryer. It's worth every penny!" —M J

    Promising review: "I have 4c kinky-coily hair. This dryer cuts my drying and straightening time to just 20–25 minutes! I part my hair in four sections, apply my heat protectant, and use this dryer and in no time my hair is straightened! This hairdryer is comfortable and practical to use. I highly recommend for textured hair!" —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $41.88+ (available in four colors).

    48. Or a Slip silk pillowcase here to make sleep feel even more like a ~dream~, especially when she wakes up with her beautiful curls still intact and frizz-free. (Not to mention her skin looking great too!)

    Model hugging a pillow with the silk pillowcase on it in black

    The pillowcase is made from 100% silk, which is less absorbent than other fibers. This means that all those products you put on your skin and in your hair stay where they belong. Plus, silk reduces friction, causing less pulling on both your hair and skin — leaving both looking and feeling better when you wake up in the morning.

    Promising review: "This is an investment, and it is so worth it. I have curly frizzy hair, and this has been a lifesaver. I actually wake up with my curls looking okay rather than a crazed clown. The pillowcase is soft and no doubt good for my skin. You do have to hand wash it, which isn't too difficult and it dries super quick too." —Peanut13

    Get it from Nordstrom for $89+ (available in queen and king sizes and in nine colors) or a similar style from Amazon for $8.99 (for a set of two; available in three sizes and 24 colors).

    49. A heated massager she can use to relieve the tension she gets from just being out in the world and dealing with everyday stressors (*cough, cough* raising kids).

    A model using the massager with arms and loops on the end on their shoulder, lower back, calves, and stomach.

    The massager has eight deep-kneading nodes plus a heat function that automatically shuts off in 15 minutes. There are also three speeds (or intensities) and two massage directions. Plus, with the convenient arm straps, you can control how much pressure you get on your body. The massager must be plugged in to use, but it does come with a car adapter, in case you want to take your massager on the road.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying a massager online, but I guess I wanted to try anything at this point because the tension in my neck was so bad! I am using it right now for the first time, and it's amazing. Just the right pressure and hitting all the spots that I have knots in. It's very warm, but I wouldn't say 'hot'. I can't wait to use this every night to relax!!! I am so grateful." —Jamie Shepard

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in beige and black).

    50. A Guerlain eau de parfum gift set filled with a nice perfume and body lotion for a nice bit of luxury she deserves after dealing with your teenage years.

    51. A splurge-worthy Barefoot Dreams robe that'll basically make her feel like she's wearing a big blanket all the time. She'll feel very luxurious and like royalty.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite robe ever. It is incredibly soft and comfy. I love the way it fits, I love where the pockets are positioned, and I love the color. I ordered a size 1 and I’m 5’7” but with a petit frame. It fits perfectly. I would recommend this robe to anyone. I’m going to give them as gifts for the holidays this year. I plan to be pretty popular after that :). I highly recommend." —Kallie1

    Get it from Nordstrom for $99 (available in sizes 1–4 and in 10 colors).

    52. A personalized recipe cutting board so you can preserve her favorite "secret" family recipe and display it like a work of art. Plus, when it's time to make the recipe, she won't have to try and remember where she stored the card.

    Morning Jo Co / Etsy

    The cutting boards are handmade out of 100% wood and come with a genuine leather cord tied around the handle. Since this item is handmade, make sure to order as early as possible to make sure it arrives in time. Right now, it takes about a week to make and then ship out.

    BTW— Morning Jo Co is a small Black-owned business founded by a husband and wife team making custom laser-cut and engraved home decor!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love the recipe cutting board! I purchased this as a gift for my brother with one of our grandma's recipes. Morning Joy Co had GREAT customer service and kept me updated during the process. I would strongly recommend them!" —ashleyloudermilk2

    Get it from Morning Jo Co on Etsy for $69+ (available in two styles and either one-sided or double-sided).

    53. A pair of faux fur slippers lined with microfleece fabric (that absorbs any moisture *cough, cough* sweat) to keep her feet at a consistent cozy temperature all day long. Plus, with the multi-layer memory-foam footbed, she'll feel like she's walking on little soft clouds.

    Acorn Footwear / Via

    Promising review: "Like most of us, I’ve had many different types of slippers, almost all of which I liked. But I no longer want my feet in 'sweat boxes' that I constantly have to kick off to cool my feet down. I want a comfy, casual, cool-looking slipper that not only keeps my feet warm, but are comfortable to wear around the house with a decent support. And this pair of Acorns fits that bill and then some. I can go to the mail box, walk around the yard, vacuum the floors, and never do my feet overheat. They’re soft yet sturdy, and have a similar look to deck shoes. They’re very comfortable. Looks like I’m going to want another pair soon, they’re so pretty I just love them." —MonaD

    Get them from Amazon for $35.95+ (available in women's sizes 5–12 and 23 colors and patterns).

    54. And a pre-made felt flower bouquet because flowers are always a great gift, but they're an even better gift when they don't die after only one short week.
