    1. 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.

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

    3. An assortment of Baked By Melissa mini cupcakes in a variety of different flavors that are the perfect bite-sized sweet treat to enjoy on Mother's Day (and the days following).

    4. An insulated Rifle Paper Co. cup perfect to keep her drink cold for hours and hours so she can still enjoy it during her whole catch-up sesh with friends (because we both know that those go on forever).

    5. A Bandolier phone case designed with a wallet on the back *and* a detachable strap, so she can keep her essentials close and not worry about carrying a purse all the time while still looking and feeling sleek.

    6. A bathtub caddy to truly take her "me" time to new ~heights~. Just be warned, she may never leave the bathtub again...

    7. 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.

    8. A modern-looking jewelry box to keep all her precious jewels organized and looking great in her room so she can grab her favorite earrings that match with her outfit perfectly.

    9. 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.

    10. A cult-favorite Caudalie radiance serum designed with Viniferine to brighten and even out her complexion so she looks even more beautiful than she already is (if that's even possible!).

    11. A set of copper mugs so she make her own Moscow Mules at home and feel extra fancy.

    12. 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.

    13. 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. Just think, while she's taking her first sip, she'll be thinking of you and how great of a gift-giver you really are.

    14. 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.

    15. A long-sleeved pajama set designed with 5% spandex, so it won't be a ~stretch~ to say that she'll want to wear them all the time, even when she's not in bed.

    16. A makeup brush UV sanitizer here to make it super easy for your mom to disinfect her makeup brushes. All she has to do is put the brushes in it and press the bottom on top. Five minutes later her brushes will be clean and ready to use again.

    17. 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!

    18. A convenient portable cup holder that lets her bring wine into the tub, because sometimes she just needs a drink and a bath after a loooong day.

    19. 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.

    20. 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.

    21. A HyperChiller that can chill freshly brewed coffee – or other liquids, such as wine (!!) – in a minute without watering it down.

    22. A simple but breathtaking birthstone pendant necklace that makes for a gorgeous and thoughtful present.

    23. A towel warmer, because she'll never feel fancier than when she steps out of the warm shower and avoids freezing by wrapping herself into a warm towel that feels like a big hug. It's little things like this that make life more luxurious for the woman who gave you life.

    24. 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

    25. 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.

    26. 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!).

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

    28. 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.

    29. 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.

    30. 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.

    31. 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!)

    32. 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).

    33. 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.

    model wearing the mid-calf length fuzzy robe in light grey

    34. 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.
