    1. A portable wine glass holder that'll stick right to the wall of their shower or bathtub, so your mom can enjoy a glass of vino while they exfoliate. It can suction onto almost any flat, shiny, dry surface, so they can probably find a few other creative places to use it in their home.

    2. A petite bee house that'll give their buzzing neighbourhood friends a place to call home. It's a sheltered mini hive that'll save them from getting disrupted when they're taking a break from pollinating.

    4. A pair of fizzy bath bombs that are packed with vanilla, oatmeal, coconut, and honey. They'll kick their self-care game up a notch and help them really relax.

    5. A gardening journal that'll help them keep track of every seed and sprout they sow. It covers ten years, they can monitor how their crops grow over a longer stretch of time than a traditional journal.

    6. A pair of reading socks that'll keep their toes from freezing off while they're maxin' and relaxin'. Unlike regular slippers, they can be pulled over the ankles of pants, so no cold air can sneak in.

    Get them from Indigo for $34.50.

    7. A freehand semi-permanent tattoo kit, so the two of you can try out getting matching tattoos without fully committing. It'll still last for a few weeks, so they may want to use a stencil before going over it with the ink.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25. Also available in a larger size.

    8. A 500-piece botanical puzzle that'll give them something to do besides binge-watch shows on Netflix. Not only will it pry their eyes away from screens for a hot sec, but it'll leave them with some beautiful new artwork to display (don't forget to grab them a tub of puzzle-saver, too).

    9. An extra-large floral tote bag that they can fill to the brim with essentials, so they can assume their true identity as a modern-day Mary Poppins. It secures with a tie fastener at the top, meaning they won't need to worry about stuff sneaking out.

    11. A five-minute journal, if they have trouble holding onto memories, but don't have the time or energy to start their own DIY journal. It has quick prompts for every day, so they won't have to fuss over what to write about before putting pen to paper.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.98. Available in three styles.

    13. A pair of weighted Bala bands, if your mom has been working on their fitness. Because they can be strapped to wrists or ankles, they won’t have to cling to them with sweaty palms (like they would with regular free weights).

    Get the one-pound weights from Indigo for $65. Also available in a two-pound version. Available in eight colours.

    14. An Endy weighted blanket that'll help them sleep like a baby (and keep them warm, too). I have one of these and it's helped with my insomnia and anxiety, making it totally worth the investment.

    15. A smartphone-controlled Ember mug that'll help keep their drink warm with the help of a free app. Now they won't be stuck sipping on tepid tea or coffee halfway through the day.

    It has a one-hour battery life on a single charge, but they can keep it on the included charging coaster for all-day use without dying.

    Get it from Indigo for $149.95+. Available in two colours.

    16. A faux leather-bound password logbook, if they can never remember their login info for anything. It has spaces for websites, software license numbers, and home network settings (basically, all the important stuff).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99+. Available in thirteen colours and three sizes.

    17. A Tower 28 lip jelly, if they're tired of the matte lip trend and prefer the look of a plumper, juicier pout. The formula is oil based, meaning they won't have to deal with the dreaded stickiness of a traditional gloss.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Until recently, I was not a gloss gal. In fact, I was not a lip product gal at all (besides balm). But let me tell you, things have changed! I am obsessed with these lip jellies. They keep my cracked, chapped lips soothed and the colours are great. I am not lying when I say I am going to purchase every single one because they are so dang pretty.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $18. Available in ten colours.

    18. A glass water carafe set that they can keep by their bedside, so they'll never be stuck with a Sahara-dry mouth in the middle of the night again. They can also use it in their bathroom for rinsing their mouth out after scrubbing down their pearly whites.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99+. Available in three colours.

    19. A lightweight robe that they can wear in the boudoir or at the beach (it works for both!). It's outfitted with on-seam pockets, so they'll have a place to stash their phone or sunglasses.

    Get it from Indigo for $59.50. Available in sizes S/M—M/L.

    It heats up in mere minutes, so they won't have to wait long for their breakfast.

    Get it from Indigo for $24.50.

    21. A wooden recipe holder that lists measurement conversions, so it's helpful even when it's not propping up a tablet or cookbook.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.19+ (originally $31.26). Available in four styles.

    22. This braided fedora with a super-wide brim that'll get them prepared for the sunniest days. Not only is it chic as heck, but it'll save them from getting a sunburn while they're gardening or kicking back on the deck with a mojito in hand.

    Get it from Indigo for $49.50.

    23. A set of DIY paper vases, so they can create their own plant homes without taking a ceramics class. It even includes the goods to make their own greenery, if they've had enough kids and aren't ready to take on the responsibility of becoming a full-fledged plant parent.

    Simons / Via

    Get it from Simons for $45.

    24. Or, if your mom has no trouble keeping plants alive, this multi-tiered stand that can fit up to five leafy wonders. It has a weighted base, so they won't have to worry about it toppling over.

    Five plants in the stand

    Get it from Simons for $60.

    25. A YETI tumbler that'll keep their hot drinks hot and their cold drinks cold. The anti-sweat design prevents condensation on the outside, so it'll never be too slippery to hold onto.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I love everything YETI makes, so I was prepared to love these tumblers before they even arrived on my doorstep. They're the perfect size for coffee, so my partner and I take them with us on our morning dog walk. The opening in the lid is also wide enough to slurp a smoothie from or slide a straw in, so I can really use them for every beverage under the sun.

    Get the large size on Amazon Canada for $39.99+. Available in ten colours and in the shorter version.

    26. An energizing Province Apothecary rollerball that's filled with bergamot, geranium, frankincense, ylang ylang, and jasmine essential oils. It'll give them a little mood boost and make them smell like a million bucks.

    29. An Art Deco-inspired light therapy lamp that won't mess with their home decor vibes. Not only will it look great on their desk, but it can help ease seasonal affective disorder symptoms, regulate their sleep cycle, and make them less fatigued (among other things).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.99.

    31. And a bamboo bath caddy that'll make kicking back in the tub even more enjoyable for your mama. It has a slot for a wine glass, pockets for their phone and bath accessories, and a spot to rest their tablet or book.

    32. A bread maker, because making their own loaves will save them some serious dough (and trips to the bakery). They can even delay baking time, so they can wake up to freshly-baked bread in the morning or come home to a piping hot loaf after running errands.

    Indigo / Via

    Get it from Indigo for $220.

    33. A tube of clarifying Summer Fridays mask that'll exfoliate their skin, leaving them looking glowy as heck. Instead of chemicals, it relies on pumpkin and apricot seed to work its magic.

    Sephora / Via

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $58.

    34. A Nintendo Switch Lite that'll provide hours upon hours of fun, so they'll never be bored again. It's small enough to pop in their bag, so they can take it with them on road trips and cottage adventures.

    I love playing games, but I find a lot of handheld systems too bulky for my liking. This model is great because it doesn’t have joy-cons that slide off like the original and is a little less weighty, making it easier to tote around. It'll also save you a bit of money (it's over $100 less!).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $256.99. Available in four colours.

    35. A chic cycling helmet that folds down, so they can tuck it in their backpack when they dismount their bike. It has an aerodynamic design and is lighter than traditional bulky helmets, too.

    Get it from Indigo for $110. Available in three colours and two sizes.

    36. A portable picnic blanket that'll save their clothes from getting muddy when they're hanging out in the great outdoors. It comes with a carry handle, so they won't need to shove it in their bag when they're done dining al fresco.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $34.99.

    37. A Kindle Paperwhite, so that they can carry a whole library of books with them wherever they go. It's a convenient size to tote around and they can magnify the font or change the boldness of the text, if they're having a hard time seeing.

    It's waterproof and looks like real paper (without any glare) in the sunlight.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $139.99+. Available in 8GB and 32GB capacities.

    38. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro, so they can listen to their playlists and podcasts without messing with a nest of tangled cords. They last for nearly five hours on a single charge, so they won't have to stress about them dying in the middle of a workout.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $262 (originally $329). Also available in the original version.

    Get a pack of five pairs from Indigo for $39.95.

    40. An adjustable satin sleep mask that'll block out every little bit of light, so they'll finally be able to get some rest. It'll be great for hangovers, car rides, and days when they just don’t want anything to do with the sun.

    It's hypoallergenic, so they won't be rudely awoken by their own sneezes.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.95.

    41. A bottle of Espa overnight enzyme peel that's packed with good-for-skin ingredients, like fruit enzymes and spirulina, and will work its magic while they snooze. It's super hydrating and will leave them looking fresh 'n' glowy when they wake up in the morning.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I'm not usually one for pricey skincare treatments, but this stuff has made me a convert. My skin feels plumper, more radiant, and generally happier after using it two nights a week for the last little while. I also like that it stays on your face and doesn't rub off on your pillow while you sleep, like most night creams and masks on the market.

    Get it from SkinStore for $92.95.

    42. And finally, a Click and Grow indoor garden that'll help them create a super low-maintenance herb and vegetable patch inside their home. Now they can feel like a seasoned botanist without even getting their hands dirty.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I have one of these and it's super simple to use, even if you don't have a green thumb. Just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. I love it because a) it makes me feel like a successful gardener b) thanks to the reservoir, my plants won't die if I forget to water them for weeks, and c) now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $259.95. Available in three colours and in a smaller size. It comes with three basil plant pods, three tomato plant pods, and three lettuce plant pods, but you can purchase different varieties, too.
