    36 Mother's Day Gifts That Are Way Better Than Whatever You Got Them Last Year

    One up yourself.

    1. A pack of hummingbird leaf-shaped tea bags that'll give their steeped beverages an avian twist. They're made of organic cotton and are free of chemicals, so they're a little easier on the environment, too.

    2. A flower collage kit that'll give them some new artwork to show off in their home. This little display is super easy to assemble and is a crafty solution for their lack of a green thumb.

    3. A set of tie-free shoe laces that'll transform their favourite pair of runners into slip-ons. They'll make putting on their shoes quicker and easier, and won't come undone if they break into a sprint.

    4. This 500-piece yogi 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).

    5. A pair of stainless steel wine tumblers with removable stems that'll save them from bringing their fancy crystal glasses camping. They're vacuum insulated, meaning they'll keep their hot drinks hot and their cold drinks cold.

    6. A Jason Momoa-themed colouring book, if they're obsessed with Khal Drogo and would probably give away their first-born child (you) to spend a day with Aquaman (sorry, dad).

    7. A wireless charging stand, so they won't have to waste their computer's battery to charge their phone. It has nearly 16,000 positive reviews and reviewers love that they can charge their devices without removing their case.

    8. A pair of wood-handled ravioli stamps that'll help them create some seriously gourmet noodle pockets in their own kitchen. They can also use them to craft dumplings, if they're more their jam.

    9. A deck of non-cheesy affirmation cards that'll give them the dose of positivity they need to keep on truckin'. Reviewers say that they're simultaneously inspiring and hilarious, which is a combo your mom can probably get on board with.

    10. This silky neckerchief that'll make them look like stylish version of Fred Jones (ya know, from Scooby-Doo). It'll instantly elevate any outfit, meaning they can rock it with jeans and a top or something a lil' fancier.

    11. A question-a-day journal that'll take them a whole five years to complete. This written time capsule will let them see how they've changed (or stayed the same) over the years and will take way less time to fill out than a traditional diary.

    12. A compact cold brew maker, if they love coffee more than life itself. It'll start to work its magic as soon as they place the brewer on the carafe, so they won't need to do any extra work.

    13. A pillowy-soft cotton sleep mask that'll block out every little bit of light and give them the best sleep of their life. Now they won't complain about your dad turning on the lights too early or staying up too late.

    14. A spiral-bound activity book filled with criminal mind puzzles, if your mom fancies themself an armchair detective. If they love brain teasers, but want something a little more immersive than a crossword or sudoku puzzle, they'll love this.

    15. A bottle of Canadian-made Heartbeat hot sauce that'll help ~spice up their life~. They pack a punch in the flavour department, but won't put their taste buds out of commission for a week. Will you try and steal this for your own fridge? Definitely.

    16. A petite aromatherapy diffuser that's small enough to fit in their car cup holder. It also works as a humidifier, which is a bonus if their space tends to feel a bit stuffy.

    17. A floral ring dish that'll keep their tiniest treasures in one place. It's a chic (and useful!) addition to any bedside table or bathroom counter.

    18. A customizable photo album that they can fill with pictures of their four-legged friend. It has space to jot down notes, so they can record their most treasured memories.

    19. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro, so that they can bop to their favourite beats without messing with a tumbleweed of tangled wires. They last for nearly five hours on a single charge, so they won't have to stress about them dying in the middle of the day.

    20. This ultra-chic tote that they can fill to the brim with essentials, so they can assume their true identity as a modern-day Mary Poppins. It has a petite zippered pocket attached to one handle, so they can keep their go-to items from hiding in the bottom of their bag.

    21. A reusable notebook that'll make electronic copies of everything they jot down with the help of a free app. Using it is simple: when they're done writing, they'll just hold their phone above the page. The free app will detect and capture the image, creating a digital copy that looks identical to their handwritten notes.

    22. A cozy wearable blanket that won't slide off their shoulders like a traditional throw. It even has feet, so their tootsies will stay toasty (even when their slippers have gone MIA).

    23. This Disney-inspired cheese board that'll bring a little magic from the House of Mouse to their charcuterie platter. It has a hidden drawer that fits the three included cheese knives perfectly, so they won't need to have their own tools.

    24. This magical Revlon one-step styler that'll dry, volumize, and style their tresses all in one go. Now they won't need to mess around with a thousand hair tools when they're running late.

    25. A unisex Rose Apothecary hoodie, if your mom is the biggest Schitt's Creek fan on the planet. Reviewers say it's thick, warm, and super comfy, so they'll probably wear it all winter long.

    26. This book of crossword puzzles from New York Magazine that'll keep them entertained for hours. It even includes a bonus cryptic puzzle for the seasoned pros who want more of a challenge (anagrams, ahoy!).

    27. A pedicure sponge that's infused with shea butter, tea tree oil, and olive oil that'll leave their feet feeling and smelling, like, stupid good. Reviewers say it's amazing for people with cracked feet and that it washes away dead skin cells like no one's business.

    28. A pastel electric mug warmer that'll keep their coffee or tea warm while they work, so they won't have to throw it in the microwave every half hour. Reviewers say that it's large enough to fit mugs of all shapes and sizes, and love that it shuts off automatically.

    29. A waterproof desk cover that'll replace that ratty old mouse pad they've been using forever. It'll cover almost their entire desk, so if they've got any scratches or notches they want to hide, this will be their stylish knight in shining armour.

    30. An ergonomic herb chopper with five ultra-sharp stainless steel blades that'll make chiffonading their basil, thyme, and mint a simple and straightforward process. Reviewers love how sharp the edges are and say it's much more effective than a knife.

    31. A Kindle Paperwhite, so 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.

    32. A non-stick lasagne trio pan, so they can make three different pasta recipes and only end up with one dirty pan. If they love cooking but hate washing dishes, they need this in their life.

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

    34. A bottle of ultra-hydrating Mario Badescu facial spray to give your mom's morning routine a luxurious lil' upgrade. It'll save their skin from dryness and pack it with nourishing herbs and oils, leaving them feeling fresh, fine, and fierce in just a few spritzes.

    35. An Alexa-enabled Echo Dot that'll become their electronic personal assistant and answer all their burning questions ("Alexa, what is a TikTok?"). It's also a speaker, meaning they can use it to catch up on podcasts or listen to playlists, too.

    36. And finally, a pancake batter mixer that'll make whipping up flapjacks so easy, they'll probably make them for every meal (no shame in that!). All they'll need to do is add their ingredients, throw in the BlenderBall, and shake it up to mix everything together.

    Cheers to buying the best gifts!
