So when I visited my parents my mom started RAVING about these brownies because she's on a keto diet and has a huge sweet tooth, well....I ate three huge portions and she was mad but I'm already making more upstairs as I type this! Delicious! Wouldn't know it was sugar-free unless you told me." —meh

    11. A question a day journal so you can take a moment to reflect and be introspective each day. It's great for busy moms who don't have a lot of time to sit around journaling.

    You answer one question each day for the whole year. The following year, you go back and answer the questions again. After five years you can see how much has changed. See our full review of this journal.

    Promising review: "I am a busy mother of four and never have time to do anything extra. So when I found this journal, I thought maybe this could be my answer since I always want to journal, but never have the time. Because there are only a few short lines to fill in each day, I have been able to keep up with writing and it's actually been nice to spend five minutes a day, jotting down a thought. I have since bought a few more for some of my family members and they love this journal as well. It's so practical and something that anybody can find time for." —Emmy

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    12. A decadent cacao spread that's a step up from Nutella. You might have to hide this from the rest of the family.


    This paleo spread is made with ghee butter, but is lactose free.

    Promising review: "This stuff is a pot of gold; it’s delicious! I’m hooked on the regular ghee butters made by this company but this is nothing like them. It’s definitely more of a chocolate spread than a butter. Very sweet yet balanced. Like someone else wrote, this is sort of like Nutella and anything you’d use Nutella on this serves as an even better substitute to add that extra component we all know and love: coffee. To me, this is Nutella for adults and I’m glad I don’t have to go another day without it." —Caitlin

    Get it from Amazon for $13.14 (available in three flavors).

    13. A beautifully packaged candle from Otherland to light up your life.

    It comes in nice light and airy scents like Canopy (fig, ivy, and mint), Rattan (sandalwood, amber, and moss), and Chandelier (champagne, saffron, and leather).

    Get it from Otherland for $36 (available in five scents).

    14. Handmade leather sneakers that are as beautiful as they are comfortable. Comfort = always worth the splurge.

    Since these are real leather, a breaking-in period is needed.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these shoes!! I bought them over a month ago and have literally worn them everyday except for maybe a couple. They’re so stylish, incredibly comfortable to wear, and go with everything! They can be both casual and dressy." —Erica H.

    Get them from Nisolo for $148.

    15. An Ember mug that keeps your drink at the ideal temperature, no matter how long you leave it on the table to deal with unrelenting mom duties.


    This fancy mug connects to an app so you can control the temperature of your drink. It's not meant for heating but rather maintaining a hot temperature for an extended period of time.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cup! I play video games and watch movies on the weekend for a few hours of entertainment. And this cup delivers a perfect cup of hot coffee throughout my gaming sessions even with my fans blowing in my face. I now must have this cup for life. I love coffee, and it tastes even better in this cup because the coffee is consistently hot. It is simply fantastic!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

    16. An investment-worthy sound bar that provides movie theater sound right in your own home. It comes with Roku built-in so it's your one-stop-shop for all your streaming needs.

    This thing is super easy to use! Just plug it in and follow the instructions on the TV with the included remote. Bonus: The Roku Channel has some free movies available this month for Mother's Day, including You’ve Got Mail, Waterboy, and Purple Rain.

    Promising review: "It’s got a good bass to it, and is louder than I expected. I bought this for my TV but it ended up being compatible with my PC and so now I use it for games, and it sounds amazing! Set up for the PC was a little tricky but for a TV, it’s as simple as plugging it in. Plus if you lose your controller, the app can easily do the same thing." —Victor

    Get it from Best Buy for $179.99.

    17. A sweatshirt from Shop BuzzFeed featuring a mama plant and a baby plant to showcase your love of all leafy friends.

    Shop BuzzFeed

    Atlas Coffee, Emmy Favilla

    You can get a half bag, single bag, or double bags every two or four weeks. Then you can decide if you want light or dark roast, ground or whole bean. Each shipment comes with a handwritten postcard from the country that made your coffee. Oh, and the coffee is DELISH.

    Get it from Summerland for $225.

    21. A quartz phone grip that's like PopSocket's cooler, more sophisticated older sibling.


    Get it from HeartTheSparkle on Etsy for $45.

    22. An enormous, 5-pound bag of gummy bears, because you're financially independent and can buy your own candy. Just hide this jumbo bag from your kids.


    Listen, I'm gonna leave a short review here, but click through and read some of the dang novel-length reviews some people are leaving. People are passionate about these gummies! Maybe it's because they're softer than other brands and have 12 (!!!) flavors.

    Promising review: "As a gummy fanatic for more years than I care to admit, I have tried all sorts of brands, both popular brands and generic, domestically and internationally. In terms of taste, moisture, aroma, and variety, Albanese gummy bears are unmatched. Yes, they're pricey, but if you prioritize quality over quantity, this is the purchase for you. Treat yourself to absolute quality and go for Albanese." —trev rogers

    Get it from Amazon for $13.63.

    23. A purrfectly adorable spoon to add some whimsy to your tea-drinking time.


    Promising review: "This is a great product and is super cute! The spoon holds on to the side of the cup as expected. I use it every day to stir my coffee." —Curiously curious

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49.

    24. And a Baby (Yoda) on Board sticker to ensure everyone is super nice to you on the road.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.
