    39 Unique Mother's Day Gifts, Because Your Mom Seriously Does Not Need Another Candle

    Time to shake things up.

    1. A tea timer that'll let them know exactly how long to brew their black, green, and white teas. Now they'll never be stuck drinking a watered-down Orange Pekoe or English Breakfast blend.

    2. An itty bitty USB disco ball, so they can bring the party with them, wherever they go. Reviewers love how bright it is and say that it can actually light up an entire room.

    3. A terracotta toad house that'll encourage tailless amphibians to take up residence in their garden. It'll offer safety from predators and will look heckin' cute next to their begonias.

    4. A portable laptop desk with a cushioned wrist pad and base that'll keep them comfy during long hours of surfing and scrolling. It has a built-in slot for their tablet, so it won't tip over while they're working.

    5. A scratch-off movie bucket list that'll turn them into a full-fledged cinema buff upon completion. They've probably already seen a handful, so they can start scratching off titles as soon as they open their gift.

    6. A watercolour paint set that'll help them unleash their inner artist (because they're the next Van Gogh, duh). It comes with everything they'll need to get started, so they won't have to purchase extra bells and whistles.

    7. A heat-up compression eye mask that'll massage their face, making it great for headaches and eye strain. It has built-in Bluetooth speakers that'll help them block out the outside world, so they can really chill out.

    8. A Buddha Board, so they can find their zen through art. It's basically an adult Etch A Sketch — they can create masterpieces with the included brush in water and their doodles will disappear as the water evaporates.

    9. A set of cat-shaped self-watering globes that'll keep their plant friends happy and healthy. They'll slowly seep water into soil over three weeks, so they won't need to stress if they forget to give them their daily dose of H2O.

    10. A gin-making kit, so they can create their own artisanal boozy beverages. It comes with everything they'll need to concoct some seriously tasty spirits and plenty of recipes, if they don't know where to start.

    11. A pack of word magnets that'll help them create their daily mantras right on their fridge. The set comes with 300 words, so they can even use it to start putting together their future award-winning novel.

    12. A Tile Slim Bluetooth tracker, if all of their things are constantly going MIA. This model is thin enough to slide into a wallet and will help track down their lost item in seconds.

    13. A deck of Art Oracle cards that'll gift them with words of wisdom inspired by greats like Picasso, Pollock, and Kahlo when they're stuck in a creative rut. They're also just really pretty to display on a coffee table.

    14. A transparent birdhouse that'll stick right onto their window, so they can make some winged pals and squirrel friends. It has a dual-compartment feeding tray that slides out, making it easy to refill.

    15. A speedy egg cooker that'll whip up a protein-packed breakfast for them in mere minutes. It doesn't need to be monitored, so they can take a shower or do their makeup while it gets down to business.

    16. An embroidery kit that'll help them create some beautiful new artwork with their own two hands. It's suitable for beginners, so they won't even need to be a seasoned pro with a needle and thread to get the job done.

    17. A karaoke microphone that they can belt their favourite tunes into. Fair warning: This will probably be busted out at future family gatherings, so be prepared to perform a number of your own.

    18. A crème brûlée pan, so they won't have to go to a restaurant to enjoy their favourite indulgent dessert. If you want to go all out, pair it with a torch, so that they can acheive that perfect carmelized crust, too.

    19. An Andy Warhol Lego set that's trickier than those rockets and castles they helped you make when you were a kid (and give them some new art to display when it's completed). It has 3,332 pieces, so it'll keep them busy for a while.

    20. A portable beach tent that'll shield them from the sun when they're relaxing in the sand (or in the backyard). It folds into a portable pouch, making it easy to tote from place to place.

    21. A personal humidifier that'll make their space feel less like the Sahara. Instead of filling the base with water, they can plug any old plastic water bottle into the top. Now they won't feel bad about having a few single-use ones lying around their house, because this baby will give them a second life.

    22. A lil' frothing pot that'll help them craft barista-level beverages, so they won't have to leave their house to have a latte. It doubles as a heater, if they want to warm up a frosty beverage without popping it in the microwave.

    23. A fancy-shmancy Cricut Joy machine that'll help them tackle just about every crafting project under the sun. Whether they want to create labels for their pantry jars or customize cards, this will make their DIYs easier than ever.

    24. A set of tiny skull-shaped plant pots, because they're not a regular plant parent; they're a cool plant parent. Reviewers love how their succulents and cacti look like crazy hairdos on their lil' craniums.

    25. A handmade floral camera strap that'll save them from dropping their device and scuffing their lens. If you want to take it to the next level, get it customized with their name or initials.

    26. A set of granite whiskey stones that will keep their drinks icy cold, but won't water them down. I'm not saying you should pair it with a bottle of whiskey, but…you should probably pair it with a bottle of whiskey.

    27. A holographic PopSockets wallet that'll give them a better grip on their phone and keep their essential cards all in one place. Now they won't have to worry about forgetting their Visa OR dropping their phone.

    28. A 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).

    29. A leather tool holder that they can slide onto any belt, instantly making any ensemble more functional and fashionable. It has plenty of clasps and pockets, so whether they want to tote around tools, art supplies, or everyday necessities, it's bound to come in handy.

    30. A sleek grow light that'll brighten up any dark corner or cranny in their home, making it ready for indoor gardening. They can even connect it to a free app to control their lighting situation from afar and set up a schedule for their plant babies.

    31. A handy AeroPress device that uses total immersion and pressure to make rich coffee and espresso shots, so they can be their own barista in the great outdoors. It comes with a mug and travelling lid, but you may want to throw in a bag of coffee.

    32. A microwave popcorn popper that'll help them make movie theatre-level snacks in the comfort of their own home. It has a butter melter built into the lid, so they won't need to dirty any extra dishes to elevate their kernels.

    33. 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.

    34. A personalized leather coffee cup holder that'll attach right to their handlebars, so they won't have to pull a dangerous juggling act while they ride. You can even get it stamped with their initials to make it more personal.

    35. 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.

    36. A tie-dye mask kit, so they can create their own unique accessories. It has enough supplies to make two masks, so they can experiment with different colours and patterns.

    37. A vegan cheese-making kit, if your mama is not down with dairy, but loves traditionally cheesy dishes. They can use the kit to craft faux mozz, cheddar, and ricotta, meaning they can make a ton of different recipes with their creations.

    38. A double-walled tumbler with an extra-wide straw that's ideal for smoothies and boba-filled beverages. It's totally insulated, so it'll keep their hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold.

    39. And finally, a colouring book filled with illustrations of sassy animals sipping boozy libations (I mean, what more could they want?). Each colouring page includes a drink recipe, so it'll help them become a seasoned mixologist, too.
