    person holding a book that says "What I love about Mom by me"

    Promising review: "Great quality! Mom LOOOOVED it! I used this with Sharpie pens so it wouldn't smudge. Not sure how regular pen ink would fare. This book, once filled, melted my mom's heart. If you want to make your mom really happy and feel loved, get her one of these!!!" —Anon

    2. A personalized ring so they can keep their kiddos' names on them at all times — think of it as an upgrade to that necklace they likely have with mini charm figures of their kids hanging from it.

    a reviewer's image of their keys on the small white cloud-shaped key holder

    Promising review: "One of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now. Hasn't lost any magnetism." —Makenah

    Get it on Amazon for $7.98.

    4. A Dead Sea mud mask they can use to host a makeshift spa night at home. Fresh skin and an opportunity to bond with their kids? What more could any mom want?,

    Promising review: "I'm not joking, I thought this was just going to be a normal face mask but I was wrong. The application was smooth and easy. After waiting 10 minutes, I took it off face was smooth as a baby's butt, no lie. This made my face so soft and feeling refreshed and hydrated!!!" —olesya gordeyeva

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    5. A ReadeREST they'll clip onto their shirt and hopefully stop asking you "have you seen my glasses?" every half hour.

    The Grommet

    Promising review: "I frequently lose my glasses every year. Glasses necklaces break, the glasses slip out of my pocket. This holder looked interesting so I thought I would give it a try. After a month, I still have my glasses and am beginning to trust the holder to not let them go. I would recommend this product to others who suffer from the same eyeglass-losing syndrome I am have. So far, so good." —Nancy

    9. A running belt that'll hold their necessities so they can focus on breaking their personal record instead of keeping track of whether they've lost their keys.,

    Promising review: "Love this belt! It is super comfortable and sturdy. I bought the belt to hold my iPhone 8 Plus and keys while I run. The iPhone 8 Plus is a tight squeeze but fits, even in its OtterBox case. I love the hook to snap my keys on so they stay in place and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. I did not even find the need to flip the belt as my phone and keys felt secure and I wanted easier access to my phone. It fits snugly on my hip and the belt did not bounce around on my run even with my heavy phone inside. All in all super happy with this purchase. Worth every penny!" —Elise V. Ryding

    Get it from Amazon for $22.38+ (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and 13 colors).

    10. The Wand, a handheld filter designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. This lil' gadget will have you and Mom singing out "blesssss my souuuuul" like one of The Muses from Hercules.

    a model stirring the wand into their wine

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    11. A three-pack of spring awakening–inspired candles in packaging Mom will likely admire as much as the scent.

    three floral inspired candles

    When I'm in the mood to treat myself, one of the first places I turn (aside from my local coffee shop) is Otherland, a woman founded-and-owned business. They release different collections for each season, so I enjoy the *rush* of having to pick 'em up before they're retired. Their most recent collection is perfect for Mother's Day — they're floral inspired and smell absolutely divine.

    Get the set from Otherland for $89.

    12. A punching bag set that'll help them cope with some stress (it's been that kind of...year and a half) while getting a great workout in at the same time.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This boxing machine is durable. It took me literally seven minutes to put together, it was so quick and easy. Gloves are an awesome added bonus. They are durable and comfy as well. This is a great buy for people who are looking for a nice workout but don’t want the gym. I live in an apartment. My neighbors can’t hear it below me so overall I say this is good quality for the price." —Brittany L.

    Get it from Amazon for $53.75+ (also available in a heavy duty set).

    13. High-waisted skinny jeans for when they want to put their Mom jeans aside for the day and switch up their style.

    a box of assorted bath bombs

    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BATH BOMBS!!!! I think they are fun in terms of the packaging, the names, the colors and the little 'extras' mixed in the bombs. I personally feel they are just the right size and love the colors. The first time around I was concerned about the color part but no worries — doesn't stain the tub. They are very moisturizing for the long tough New York winter we are experiencing this year; my skin tends to be dry but using these bath bombs on a regular basis has helped to keep my skin nice and soft. And the number of bath bombs in the set along with the price is just right!" —Pamela

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $26.80.

    15. A money tree plant to bring extra oxygen and life into their home and hopefully make up for all the years you spent begging them for a couple of dollars for lunch or to go to the movies with your friends.

    the money tree planet in a clay pot

    I've received an array of plants from Bloomscape and I couldn't be more impressed with how nicely packaged they've come (safe 'n' snug!). The plants are always in great condition — Mom will love receiving one this year.

    Get it from Movado Company Store for $49.99 (originally $175).

    17. A splurge-worthy Barefoot Dreams throw blanket they've probably seen the Kardashians toting around — so soft they'll want to wrap themselves up in it and stay that way until next Mother's Day.

    a model wrapped in a leopard print fuzzy blanket in white and light brown
    barefootdreams / Via

    Promising review: "Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she loved this blanket and mentioned that it easily stretches over the shoulders and feet. Let me tell you, it does. I'm only 5-foot-5 so it does the trick. This blanket makes me look forward to going to sleep. It's not too warm yet you feel wrapped up in a cloud. Totally worth the money. I want another one." —Michael A. Roman

    Get it from Amazon for $179+ (available in three styles).

    18. Layered necklaces with a charm of the moon from the exact date and time that means most to your mom (might I suggest, the day she gave birth to you?!).


    I have a beaded bracelet from Moonglow and it's one of the coolest pieces of jewelry I own! When ordering from the site, you'll note the date and time of a meaningful moment and watch as the *exact* moon phase from that night is generated onto a charm. It's really amazing and so special. You can also have the back of the charm engraved — I got my wedding date in Roman numerals, as an example.

    Get it from Moonglow for $103 (available in three styles).

    19. A crewneck devoted to the planet saving hobby we all know and love; composting. Truthfully cannot think of a better addition to your Mom's wardrobe.

    hand holding a stemless wine glass drink container in front of a pool

    My family is *obsessed* with Yeti products. Seriously, my sister has 10 various Yeti cups and Yeti dog bowls for her pup. I've personally been using one of these to keep my iced coffee chill throughout the day. Any mom who is out and about will appreciate being able to take one of these with them on-the-go.

    Promising review: "I worked my normal 12-hour shift and got home at 11:15 p.m. I made a margarita and the next thing I know I’m rushing my dog to the ER. I spent three HOURS at the vet with him. When I came home MY MARGARITA WAS STILL FROZEN! I have the wine cup, so there wasn’t a lid. What a great ending to a horrible day." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $18.74+ (available in 13 colors).

    21. A weighted blanket, which is said to stimulate serotonin which helps you sleep longer and feel more rested.

    Gravity Blankets

    Promising review: "I already owned a weighted blanket, but I was looking for a softer one and one that covered my entire bed. I purchased the gray queen-sized. It is so soft and so beautiful. It looks lovely on my bed. I also love the weight. I sleep very well with it and would purchase it again. I’ve recommended the blanket to many people." —Quinn

    Get it from Gravity Blankets for $195+ (available in 15–35 pounds and three colors).

    22. Bananagrams – it'll *lit*erally bring a smile to any bookworm's face — it combines all the fun of crossword puzzles and Scrabble for a fast-paced game anyone who loves words will appreciate.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "Definitely a lot of fun! Got this for a friend after having bought two previous versions for us and for some cousins. Everybody loves playing it and end up spending hours at a time! Helps you learn new words and while not exactly Scrabble, knowing a bunch of two letter words comes in handy when you're trying to win!" —Minion

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    23. A crystal-and-soap–filled sponge, perfect for any mom who collects crystals religiously or simply could use an upgrade to their self-care routine.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I'm a *big* crystal girl — I charge 'em in the new and full moons, I pick one up whenever I travel to commemorate the vibe of the trip, I mediate with them, I keep them in the shower, you get the point. So right off the bat I was into trying out this Spongelle sponge. It was a bit larger than I anticipated but smelled incredible straight out of the packaging. When I used it in the shower for the first time I was sold. It softened up right away and felt really exfoliating, but not abrasive, on my skin. I loved that it already had a crystal embedded into it to channel all of those *good vibes* into my shower routine. It's very soothing and I'd definitely by another when the suds run dry.

    Get it from Spongelle for $28.

    24. A rechargeable lighter that'll let them light every candle in the house to create the *perfect* ambience without concern they'll run out of lighter fluid.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again. I got one for my mom over the holidays and she also loves it!

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    25. An enamel pin to add to any new Mom's denim jacket to remind everyone they're doing their best even when their tyke is screaming their little heart out in public.

    a black circle pin with a gold edge that says "i have no idea what I'm doing" in gold

    Promising review: "Great quality pin, well made, well packaged. Has a valid point on it. I wear this to all the parent things I have to attend. I wish I had this when my daughter got her first car. It would have been required to be visible on her person for each police officer to read as she was issued so many tickets." —Greendrgn

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    26. A lucky penny bangle, guaranteed to make Mom smile and remember all the times you've both stopped in your tracks to pick up a gleaming, copper penny to add some luck to your day.

    a thin silver band with a penny in the middle
    Luca + Danni

    Promising review: "Just received it today. I LOVE IT! It is so beautiful. I got this because I lost my Dad 30 years ago, right before I turned 21. Then I saw the Pennies from Heaven poem. I think about him every time I find a penny. This is perfect. It's a constant reminder now right there on my wrist." —Denise C.

    Get it from Luca + Danni for $28 (available in regular, petite, and large sizing and two finishes).

    27. A bidet attachment that'll help Mom cut down on the need for toilet paper and ideally avoid that unpleasant moment when they find themselves on *the throne* without any TP in sight and have to embarrassingly call out to you to rescue them.

    Promising review: "Wow! My life have changed for the better. I love the classic Tushy and even gifted it to family. I can never go back to the days I didn't have Tushy. The thought of saving paper and the environment helps me sleep well at night. I highly recommend it!!" —Alice L

    Get it from Tushy for $89 when you use the code (originally $99; available in two styles).

    28. A bath tray to give Mom just one more reason to fill the tub to the brim and soak for hours while listening to their favorite podcast.,

    Promising review: "I took it out, put the pieces in their places, positioned the tray across the tub (plenty long enough), and turned on the hot water. Ooooo, myyyy gooodnesss! It is wonderful. My baths, which I have always loved, are now a true spa time complete with: facial, full body skin care, music or audio book, a magazine or book, and refreshments (fresh cherries and a favorite drink). I appreciate the security of the tray to hold my phone, eye glasses, and hand mirror. The caddy is the bomb: relaxing, fulfilling, and joyful. I look forward daily to a long soak. What fun! I covered the soap holder and the two inner compartments with foil to make cleaning a jiffy. The wood and design are attractive and functionable." —Beje

    Get it from Amazon for $33.97+ (available in seven styles).

    29. A candle that actually looks like their favorite latte but will actually just help them to fill their home with the *scent of it* at all times. So sneaky ;).

    a candle that looks like a matcha latte with a green lid next to a pastry
    DW Home

    I can't imagine anything more fitting for Mother's Day brunch than a candle that looks like the drink they'd most want with said brunch. I have a two of these candles and can tell you they are *very* strong. They also burn nice and evenly, but my favorite part is how playful they are compared to other standard candles. Each candle even comes with a removable rubberized lid!

    Get it from DW Home for $18 and check out the other scents here.

    30. Or a spring candle designed specifically for Mom — perfect if you're guilty of always stealing their candles for yourself. This one will be *all* theirs.

    Bath and Body Works

    I could rant and rave about Bath and Body Works candles all day, but I'll refrain from doing that (you're welcome). All I say is they smell amazing and are a tried-and-true classic gift your mom will absolutely love.

    Get them from Bath and Body Works: pink lilac and vanilla or watermelon lemonade for $24.50 each. Check out all the other spring scents here.

    31. A Star Wars cheeseboard that'll truly complete the marathon you guys have been planning on indulging in for your chill Mother's Day at home.

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99.

    32. A bookmark book tracker to motivate them to actually settle down and read the novel their book club decided on for this month. After they finish a book they can add the title into the spine on the bookmark and color it in — adorable.

    35. A farmhouse-style end table with a built-in speaker (no cords needed!) you can help Mom set up — because all she really wants, aside from this awesome piece of home decor, is to spend time with you. Win-win.

    The speaker side table displayed next to sofa in a living room

    You can stream from any Bluetooth-enable device and the table's speaker lasts for 10 hours at a time. When it needs to be re-juiced, just use the included cable.

    Promising review: "This is a great speaker. It’s loud enough, but you can’t blast it to a painfully loud volume. A friend accidentally knocked it over on my concrete patio, and it didn’t hurt it at all, which impressed me. I use it as a speaker for my projector in my living room. I move it to the center of the room and it’s perfect, I don’t generally need to turn it all the way up. The sound is best if you are sitting at the same level as the speaker. It sounds better than my Sony sound bar. The battery lasts a long time, and the Bluetooth hasn’t disconnected on me yet." —Mike W

    Get it from Amazon for $192.50.

    36. Glossier's Cloud Paint, which will add a touch of color to Mom's cheeks with a quick swipe of lotionlike formula. Powdered blush? We don't know her!

    Jessica Seib / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    My colleague Jessica Seib loves Cloud Paint (as does many other BuzzFeed employees, myself included). She said:

    "I'll be the first to admit that Cloud Paint in 'Beam' is a heavenly STAPLE. If you can't tell from the photos, it's both lightweight and moisturizing. The shade is super subtle, but equally as flattering on both a bare and full face of makeup. My daily *lewk* is forever changed — you won't regret buying!"

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

    37. A New York Times crossword puzzle book any word nerd would be delighted to receive — just don't expect them to pay attention to you at all for the next week with the exception of asking you "what's an eight-letter word for snowstorm!?"

    the cover over the monday crossword puzzle

    Promising review: "I love this thing! The print is nice and large, and the spiral binding is super nice. The paper is still newspaper-y which makes it feel like a newspaper crossword without having to lug around a newspaper. I use erasable pens, and they erase great. The boxes are plenty big enough for the letters and the crosswords are all appropriately 'Monday' difficulty. Great thing to have! Can’t wait to finish it and move on to Tuesday!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

    Think they'll want more of a challenge? Try the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday versions of this book for increasing difficulty!

    40. HYPERtheticals — an activity with 50 prompts your mom will loooooove using as an excuse to get you and your siblings together for a *weird* but interesting night of conversation.

    the box of cards

    BuzzFeed Editor Rebecca O'Connell has played with these and was a big fan. She explained:

    "My friend has these and there is one question that I think about CONSTANTLY. The gist was basically to imagine your absolute perfect dream home (like seriously, really think about every detail and piece of furniture) and then answer the question "would you live there if it was two miles underground?" Like, YES you can live in a mansion with a secret library and slides and a functioning Rube Goldberg machine that feeds you breakfast — but at what cost?"

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    41. A zodiac-themed pacifier clip for any new mom to accessorize their mini-me with — a must-have if they're constantly saying their tyke really is *such* a Gemini and checking the alignment of the moon and stars to see if they'll ever get a good night's rest again.


    Little Big Heart is a woman-owned small business based in Huntington, New York that sells eco-friendly pacifier clips and teethers. I'm equally obsessed with this peace-sign shaped teether made out of beech wood.

Read all about why the Instant Pot is changing how we cook in our full review of the Instant Pot.

    Promising Review: "This product is my best friend and I would marry it and grow old with it if I could. I’ve put pork loins, potatoes, yellow bundt cakes from boxed cake, rice, corn on the cob (look up INSTANT POT MILK CORN ON COB and you will never eat it any other way again!!!)... I’ve made pierogies, lasagna, apple dump cake, a whole chicken, bone broth, chicken noodle soup... and more. This is all in less than a month. I’m eating healthier. Eating out less. Cleanup is easy.

    Promising review: "My mom (and dad) loved this gift I had sent to my mom for Mother's Day. She said the food was delicious. She really liked the variety of the food and I think she actually liked that there was no chocolate, since she gets a lot of that already. She also raved about the box. She kept the box and put it on one of her book shelves and she says it looks fabulous. This one is a home run!" —Paulette

    Get it from Harry & David for $79.99.

    44. A set of satin pillowcases that'll make any recipient feel like they're living a life of luxury while also improving breakage, tangles, and frizz in their hair.

    Promising review: "I love this ring! The white is very pretty and doesn't take away from other rings when stacking. It's also lovely on its own! I was worried that it was going to look like a man's wedding band but it is very dainty. Can't stop looking at it!" —Lauryn S.

    tradecoffeeco / Via

    My husband has said this is the best thing I've ever gotten for him — and he's verrrrrry snobby about his coffee. He looks forward to the monthly deliveries and loves that he gets to test out different beans all the time. This site will ask you a series of questions like "how do you usually make your coffee at home?" and "what is your coffee experience level?" and then pair you with a coffee Trade thinks you'd be best suited for. It's like having a barista customize your drink for you all the time! You can add in a cold brew kit (summer is almost here!) to enjoy your coffee cold and then switch back anytime you'd prefer the *hot stuff* again.

    Promising review: "These liners are life-changing! I never thought I needed them until a friend raved about them. Clean up is so simple, no more melted cheese or sauces burnt to the bottom of my ovens. I love that I can cut them down to size to fit my toaster oven. My husband enjoys grilling with the liners now, he doesn't have to line the grill with aluminum foil which he found so annoying, deterring him to grill. This product really has simplified my life in the kitchen and I love it." —Kindle Custommer

    Promising review: "I bought this product as a gift for my s/o, he loves to cook and loves all things spicy. Recently he had ordered ghost peppers and didn’t know what to do with them. So I started researching hot sauce kits and came across this one. We were not disappointed!! The packaging was cute and making the hot sauce was something fun and different to enjoy together. Having this kit it made it so easy!!! All of our friends have heard about our hot sauce–making adventure and want to know where to get a kit for themselves. Everything is included: tiny glass storing bottles, the spices, little squeeze bottles and tiny fill-in labels. He absolutely loved this gift and I can’t believe I got it for the price, considering everything that’s included. 10/10 would recommend" —Sam

    Promising review: "I'm an avid sushi eater and wanted to get into making my own. I bought a rice cooker to get the rice perfect every time. This kit makes the rest of the process easier. The guide helps immensely to get the right amount of rice on the nori sheet. The absolute best part of this kit is the cutting guide, I've never been successful at cutting sushi the other way and this makes it perfect every time! Really a great value and I couldn't recommend it more." —Duudettes

It has a small pocket inside you can pop your phone into (or anything else you'd be looking to grab in a hurry) and has so much space. I've even fit my laptop into it! The straps are sturdy and I love that this version also has a zipper at the top. The best part? You can add your mom's initials for an extra special touch.

Like many people I read the comments before buying, however after trying it, the comments honestly don’t give this product enough justice. I have curly hair and I’ve seen professional mess up when blow-drying my hair, but with this product I was shocked! I wish I took a before picture but I added one with my curly hair for comparison." —Elizabet

    Bantam Bagels

    I recently tried these as-seen-on-Shark Tank bagel bites (WFH snacks, a must) and they are absolutely delicious. Each flavor is unique and stuffed with a different kind of cream cheese (yum!). My personal favorite is the everything bagel stuffed with veggie cream cheese, but you might as well go all-out and treat your mom to as many flavors as you can. They really do taste like fresh NY bagels!

    Promising review: "New game for the family! I was not familiar with bocce, but saw this pop up on Amazon and thought it looked like fun to try. Came in a nice little case, and I found as long as I left the cardboard in the case it kept it sturdy. Balls are nice-looking, and have held up after many games. This game reminds me a lot of bowling-miniature bowling. Fun family game!" —D.D.

    Mom can also use it to chop nuts, fruits, and veggies!

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my friend who is a fantastic cook — she uses fresh ingredients almost exclusively — but pressing fresh garlic is a task usually delegated. No longer — Gracula is there for her. She uses him nearly every time she needs garlic (which is basically daily) and months later still makes a point of saying how much she enjoys the gift. I'm pretty sure she likes it better than other gifts I've gotten her which were more expensive/thought out, and I'm fairly certain it's what took me from 'good friend' to 'best friend,' but it be that way sometimes. Anyway, definitely recommended for people who cook with garlic and have a sense of humor." —L
