    1. An artsy pattern puzzle that they'll probably want to frame once they’re finished it. This one has 500 pieces, but is a lot harder than it looks, so it'll probably keep them busy for days.

    Get it on Shopbop for $34.86.

    2. A set of holy grail lip products from BITE beauty that'll keep their pout moisturized and lookin' pretty. If they've been suffering from a case of super-chapped lips, they'll definitely thank you for this.

    It includes a balm, scrub, serum, and two lip masks.

    Get it on BITE Beauty for $82.

    3. A set of patterned nylon totes that are fashionable and reusable alternatives to plastic bags. They can fold into tiny pouches, so your mom can easily store them in their purse, bag, and glove compartment.

    Shopbop / Via fave.co

    Get it on Shopbop for $50.20. Available in five pattern combos.

    4. A fancy shmancy fabric shaver that's about the size of a tennis ball, so it won't take up a ton of cupboard space. They can use it to remove lint and pilled fabric that's accumulated on their carpet, furniture, clothes, and everything in between.

    Get it on Shopbop for $69.72. Available in three colours.

    5. An iced tea press that they can use to steep, ice, and sip their tea, whether they're at home or on the go. It works its magic in minutes and creates the perfect iced bevy every time.

    "The design of the mug is so user-friendly. Its body has two compartments: one exterior plastic cup and a second slightly slimmer cup that fits inside of the larger one. You dump a heaping spoonful of loose tea leaves into the larger cup and fill it to a measured line with boiling water. After about five minutes of steeping time (during which I'm usually doing my makeup or checking Snapchat), you fill the second cup with ice cubes. The bottom of the second cup is made with a mesh lining, so when the tea water is finished steeping, you slide the second cup down into the first. As this happens, the leaves are pushed down and kept separate from the liquid you're drinking while the ice cubes chill off the tea you just steeped. In two minutes, you have perfectly brewed iced tea with a ridiculously good sippy-cup top that won't give you any issues on a moving train." —Augusta Falletta

    Get it on DavidsTea for $24. Also available in grey.

    6. A trivia game all about the '80s that'll bring them back to their heyday. If you play with them, you'll probably learn a few new things, too.

    Shopbop / Via fave.co

    Get it on Shopbop for $29.28.

    7. A bottle of luxurious Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil that will nourish their skin and give it the hydration it needs. It's especially helpful to dull and dry faces, which most of us have right now, thanks to the changing of the seasons.

    @jurlique / Via instagram.com

    "I love Jurlique, and not just because I'm Australian and it's an Australian brand. I'm obsessed with face oils, and while I find rose hip a little too rich when used on its own, I love it blended with avocado and macadamia oil in this product. My mom has extremely sensitive skin too, and this also gets her stamp of approval. All of Jurlique's products are certified organic, and a lot of their ingredients are grown on their biodynamic farm in Adelaide, South Australia. In addition to this oil, their range of soothing calendula products are great for anyone who struggles with redness." —Gyan Yankovich

    Get it from LookFantastic for $73.

    8. A vintage-inspired badminton set so that they can indulge in some fun and games when the weather gets a little nicer. Hey, even if they don't end up playing, the rackets will look cute displayed in your family home.

    Shopbop / Via fave.co

    It comes with two badminton racquets, two birdies, and a zip carrying case with an adjustable strap.

    Get it on Shopbop for $55.78.

    Shopbop / Via fave.co

    Urban Decay / Via fave.co

    11. A bath caddy tray that'll help them make the most of their tub time. It has a recessed wine glass holder, extra storage hooks for loofas, and a bar to rest her book or tablet on. Now they'll never have to worry about their stuff getting soaked beside the tub again.

    18. A cushioned yoga mat that'll make every yoga session and pilates practice a lot more enjoyable (nobody can find their zen on a rock-solid mat). It's super thick, so they won't hurt themself if they fall out of crow pose.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "This is seriously one of the cushiest yoga mats I've ever used. It's got the right amount of padding to keep you from bruising your bod when attempting new poses and jumping in and out of burpees. If you want even more cushioning for a pose that's hard on your limbs, you can just fold it over and give yourself double the padding (an awesome trick for low lunges). —Alice Prendergast.

    Get it on Lululemon for $78.

    19. A HelloFresh box that'll make cooking dinner a breeze (all the ingredients are pre-portioned). Now they won't have to take a last-minute trip to the grocery store when they realize you ate everything in the fridge and pantry before noon.

    Farrah Penn / Via BuzzFeed

    "Ugh. OK, I'm sort of mad I fell in love with this product because it is a bit pricey. I loved using it during the summer when I wanted to wake up with refreshed, hydrated skin without slapping on a really, really thick cream. It's full of hyaluronic acid that helps keep your skin moisturized all night, and my skin literally feels SO SOFT when I wash my face the next morning. I also have sensitive skin and this didn't cause any irritation, which is a huge win in my book." —Farrah Penn
