    2. A One Question A Day journal that'll take them a whole five years to complete. Now all their most treasured mems will be conveniently kept in one adorable little time capsule.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $23.99.

    3. A pair of fluffy Ugg sandal slippers that'll keep their tootsies comfy when they're lounging around the house. They have a rubber sole that'll keep them from slippin' and slidin' all over the place, so they'll never take a dive on their hardwood floors.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland

    "First thing that needs to be said is that Uggs are great! They're warm, they're cozy, and you can just slide them on when you're freezing — I won't hear otherwise! They're not exactly high fashion, but they don't *need* to be when it's a straight-up polar vortex outside. So when I saw these Ugg slipper slides with an elastic back, I just had to buy a pair. I don't know what it is about them I find the cutest: the slightly sporty elastic, the Michelin man–esque plush rolls on top, or the chunky bottoms that give you a little extra height. AND they have all the comfort of a slip-on slide, but without the feeling that your foot is going to fall out any second." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it on Ugg Canada for $125. Available in 18 colours and size 5-12.

    4. A portable wine glass holder that sticks 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 their your home.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $22.

    5. A pair of cult-favourite high-waisted Align leggings that are super stretchy and won't dig into their waist (who doesn't want more lounging pants right now?). One BuzzFeed writer says they're even comfortable enough to wear on day-long flights.

    Lara Parker / Via BuzzFeed

    "As soon as I touched the material, I knew they were different. I allowed myself to be hopeful. The material is so soft, yet durable, and the stretchiest shit I've ever seen. I went into the fitting room to try the pants on and they felt like a very sexy butter caressing my legs. They are true to size, and very stretchy." —Lara Parker

    Get it on Lululemon for $98. Available in 18 colours, three lengths, and sizes 0-14.

    6. A flexible silicone ring that won't rust or tarnish over time and is even comfortable to wear while working out (my trainer rocks one instead of a classic engagement ring). They can also swap their wedding band with it when they doing chores, so their prized possession won't go MIA.

    Kaysey Davis / Via BuzzFeed

    "I don't wear rings very often, because I have a hard time finding ones that fit (my ring size is 11) — and I always seem to lose or ruin the jewelry I do get. But Enso Rings sent me a small collection to try out, and I haven't taken them off since I got them. The flexible silicone makes them super comfortable to wear, and they're completely waterproof. I don't have to worry about taking them off when I wash my hands or getting those annoying green stain on my fingers like I do when I wear costume jewelry. They also come in a variety of different colours, textures, finishes, and sizes, so I can create a customized look every time." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it on Enso Rings for $8.99 USD (originally $11.99). Available in 13 colours.

    7. A set of hydrating Mario Badescu facial mists to give their morning routine a luxurious lil' upgrade. It'll save their skin from dryness and pack it with nourishing herbs and oils, making them feel fresh, fine, and fierce in just a few spritzes.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed, Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    "It's cool and refreshing, aka the perfect wake-up call for my drooping eyes and fading brain cells. It also makes my skin look the slightest bit more dewy, and, very importantly, doesn't irritate my skin. The nozzle distributes the product really evenly and finely, which, as silly as it is to point out, is not the case for all spray bottles! I use this to give my skin some pep literally any time of the day, and sometimes even to set my makeup if I'm just wearing concealer. It's always mist o'clock somewhere! 💨" —Sarah Han

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $29.

    8. A pair of bubbly VaporMax training shoes with cushioned treads that help eliminate impact, so her joints will stay happy through jump squats and burpees. If your mama loves working out, she'll love these.

    Nike / Via tidd.ly

    Get it on Nike Canada for $250. Available in three colours and sizes 5-12.

    9. A tattoo tarot card set that'll help them predict their future and look great on a coffee table. The set includes a guidebook, so they don't have to be a seasoned pro to use it.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    Get it on Urban Outfitters for $21.99.

    10. A bronzy makeup palette that'll help them embrace their inner makeup artist. They may need the help of a YouTube beauty guru (or you), but they'll have the goods to get the job done right.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    I've actually given this as a gift and my friend is obsessed with it. It has the perfect mix of mattes and sparkles and is basically a must-have for anyone who loves more neutral tones. You should probably order one for yourself, too.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $52 or Sephora Canada for $55.

    11. An eco-friendly and aesthetically-pleasing wooden coffee maker that'll craft them the perfect cuppa Joe without any filters. Using it is simple: just place it on top of your cup, add coffee grinds, pour hot water, and get to sippin'.

    @canadianolife / Via instagram.com

    Get it on Simons for $79. Also available in ash and walnut finishes.

    12. This legendary, blood-red peeling solution from The Ordinary that you've probably seen on TikTok, Instagram, and every other social media platform, but might be new to your mom! It'll clean out their congested pores, deeply exfoliate their skin, and make their face super smooth (aka everything they want and need).

    Jame Jackson / Via BuzzFeed

    "Much to my delight, my pores appeared significantly smaller and brighter, and my skin felt as smooth as a newborn baby's booty. In addition, the peel almost immediately handled the amount of shine I was experiencing throughout the day. That's because it has salicylic acid in it, a BHA commonly used to treat acne-prone skin. While the bottle says you can use this up to twice a week, I think once a week is good for me." —Jamé Jackson

    Get it on LookFantastic for $11.60.

    13. A holographic DavidsTea tumbler that's fully insulated to keep their hot drinks hot and their cold drinks cold. It's large enough to fit almost an entire bottle of wine, or, like, lots of H20.

    @davidstea / Via instagram.com

    "I'm absolutely obsessed with this tumbler. I filled it up with ice and water the first night I got it and — I kid you not — the ice was still in full cubes 24 hours later. It's also a hella pretty holographic colour that doesn't show dents or scuffs thanks to its rock-hard coating. You can swap between a straw mouth and sippable lip by flipping the cap, or you can close both mouths completely with two quick clicks." —Alice Prendergast

    Get the tumbler, straw, and a straw cleaner on DavidsTea for $25. Also available in black holographic, matte grey, and purple metallic shades.

    14. A copy of Snoop Dogg's cookbook, From Crook to Cook, that's jam-packed with the D.O. Double G's favourite eats. It's inspired by his time with Martha Stewart and includes everything from baked mac 'n' cheese to apple pie. Even if your mom doesn't know the lyrics to "Nuthin' But A G Thang," they'll probably love everything in this book.

    @snoopdogg / Via instagram.com

    Get it on Urban Outfitters for $29.95.

    15. The Matt + Nat Vignelli, a functional and fashionable bag that's pretty enough to wear as a purse, but practical and large enough to fit all of her essentials (including a laptop!). It's also cruelty-free, in case your mom doesn't love rocking genuine leather.

    Emmy Favilla / BuzzFeed

    "You can wear this puppy literally anywhere and never feel dressed down because you're carrying a backpack — it's professional, it's dressy, and you can hold it in your hand if you really want to, without looking like you just left algebra class. It's a seemingly sleek and narrow-looking bag, so I was initially worried I wouldn't successfully be able to pack all my essentials in there, but I was proven otherwise! Every day, in the main compartment I'm able to easily fit my MacBook Air (yes, it fits my laptop!), my wallet, my sunglasses case, and my makeup bag, with room to spare. It also has this cool zipper on the side that's super convenient for stuff like my phone, keys, or MetroCard, and there are two different-sized pockets inside the bag to store your smaller items." —Emmy Favilla

    Get it from Matt + Nat for $165.

    16. A petite photo printer that prints pictures directly from their phone's camera roll. It uses a free app that allows them to add filters and frames, and shows them exactly how your photos will turn out, so they'll never waste their precious film on subpar pics again.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    You can grab rainbow film for it here!

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $119. Available in three colours.

    17. A bottle of Ouai Hair Oil that's suuuuper light and great for fine hair. It works actual miracles on frizz and won’t weigh their locks down, so they can maintain some volume.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "Unsurprisingly, hydration has been a challenge since chopping off, like, half my hair and getting it back to its natural colour (I had been bleaching it blonde for a few years). Luckily, I found this stuff. It's lighter than any hair serum I've ever used and smells like a floral dream. Plus, it only takes a few pumps to get top-notch results, so a bottle will last you a while." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $34 or Sephora Canada for $37.

    18. A set of bamboo utensils, if they've been trying to be a little cleaner and greener. The flatware comes in a roll-up pouch that'll keep their utensils clean and organized when they're toting them around.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    The set includes a fork, a knife, a spoon, a pair of chopsticks, a straw, a straw, cleaner, and a pouch.

    Get it on Urban Outfitters for $22 (originally $24).

    19. A copy of You Are a Badass, a hilarious self-help book that's zero percent cheesy and will remind them just how awesome they are (even though you probs tell them all the time).

    Taylor Fuller / Via BuzzFeed

    "Sincero’s writing is hilarious, sarcastic, and real, which is why it resonated with me so strongly. She doesn’t just lay out a list of things to do to make changes in your life; she gives insight as to why you are the way you are, how to change the things you deem negative, and how to use the universe, or 'The Force,' as she calls it, to make massive life changes that will stick. After finishing the book for the first time a little over a month ago, I have actually already started feeling a hell of a lot more positive about my life and career choices. For example, in my line of work (travel blogging/Instagram) comparing yourself to others is so easy to do. Instead, now I focus solely on what I’m doing and how it makes me feel — which has done a lot for my mental health." —Taylor Fuller

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $18.50

    20. A pair of round Ray-Ban sunnies that'll make her look effortlessly stylish and hip with the kids. The nose pads keep these specs perfectly in place, so they never slide down their nose (even when they've worked up a sweat).

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Get it on Ray Ban Canada for $138 (originally $198).

    21. A collapsible reusable mug that's made of recycled materials and is totally leakproof. It’s smaller than a fist when folded up, so they can just pop it in their bag or glove compartment when it’s not in use. Later days, single-use cups.

    Simons / Via simons-ca.c2ukkg.net

    It comes with a reusable straw that can be stored inside when it's folded up.

    Get it on Simons for $25.

    22. A dreamy essential oil diffuser that does the job of a candle, but is a whole lot cuter. If your mom misses the spa, she can bring those soothing scents into her home with the help of this little miracle worker.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    Don't forget to grab her some essential oils, too!

    Get it on Urban Outfitters for $74.

    23. And finally, a Disney+ subscription, so that she can relive her youth and also indulge in newer Disney and Pixar gems. It's broken into themed collections, so she won't have to spend hours scrolling to find exactly what she's looking for.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I was on the hunt for a new streaming service, and honestly didn't know if Disney+ was the one for me. Turns out, it is. I can indulge in guilty pleasures from way back when for hours and hours and the options are seemingly endless. I recently started sharing a membership with some friends, so it's even more budget-friendly." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Disney+ for $8.99/month.
