    Mother's Day Is *This* Weekend, So Here Are 50 Gifts That’ll Make Her Say “Ooh” When They Get Unwrapped

    Prepare to be your mom's new favorite — even when you're shopping at the last minute.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Mother's Day, shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for May 8th!

    1. Drinking Like Ladies, a compilation of 75 cocktail recipes from today's leading women bartenders so you and your mom can throw one back and toast to the very cool women who came before you.

    The cover: "75 modern cocktails from the world's leading femal bartender, includes toasts to extraordinary women in history"

    2. A six-in-one rose gold curling iron with interchangeable barrels to create tons and tons and tons of different curl patterns and hairstyles. They range from a tapered wand (.35-.7 inches) to a 1.25 inch clamped curling iron so she can customize her look without waiting for different tools to heat up.

    3. A macrame hanging shelf so she can display the plants she keeps getting as gifts (or her fave tchotchkes and prettiest beauty products!) in the most stylish way possible.

    4. A bottle of Diptyque's L'Ombre Dans L'eau parfum, because if you didn't know, this is basically the perfume version of their *iconic* Baies scent your mom probably already loves.

    5. A faux fur blanket with two sides — one fleece, one furry — so she can customize her heat level while cuddling with her favorite child (even if that's the dog).

    6. A selection of McConnell's ice creams (I am very partial to the "chocolate-covered strawberry" flavor) so you can treat *her* to a sweet treat for a change after all these years. You can even send some to yourself and cheers each other with spoons over FaceTime.

    7. A Bearaby weighted blanket if she loves her current one (or even if she's just been wanting to try a weighted blanket at all) but wants something that won't overheat her — and one that's so cute, she'll feel like an interior design genius.

    8. Or a cozy mermaid tail blanket so she can live out her ~fantasy~, aka when you ask her to do something (or the classic "Mom, where's my _______?"), she can say, "I can't get up — does this look like the ocean to you?!"

    9. A pack of world-famous Levain chocolate chip cookies for the person who gave you your sweet tooth. If you're from New York, you know the lines to buy these cookies can be *long*.

    10. A Facetory sheet mask subscription box for the gift of relaxation & a little me time *AND* wow-I-didn't-know-my-skin-could-feel-this-good hydration.

    The set of seven sheet masks

    11. A cozy longline hoodie dress (with a quarter-zip top, asymmetrical zip bottom, and *zip-off sleeves*) that's equally perfect for breezy evening Mom Walks — let's be real who doesn't love a good stroll — and chilling on the couch and talking about your day was together.

    12. Double-wall insulated rocks glasses that'll look amazing sitting out on her bar cart, keep her drink cooler (or warmer, if she uses 'em for coffee) longer, and DON'T SWEAT!

    The two glasses

    13. And an extra large skull ice cube mold for the ~coolest~ drink of all time (especially while watching marathons of Midsummer Murders) — and since it's sized like a "king cube," she'll only need one per glass!

    14. An individual box (or gift subscription!) to The Sip, a subscription box of all *sparkling wines* for a little extra Mother's Day celebration all year long. She deserves it.

    The three bottles and the box

    15. A set of jumbo fizzy aromatherapy bath bombs to moisturize any bath-lover's skin and make her next soak a little more spa-like. Ahhhh, relaxation in a steamy tub o' good smells. What a way to spend an evening!

    16. A gorgeous paper flower-making kit — you can either give her the kit to make the flowers together, or make them yourself ahead of time and give a gorgeous bouquet that will never wilt!

    17. A nonstick ceramic Always Pan (this one's PFOA-free), that's alllllllmost as hardworking as she is. This is designed to do the work of EIGHT pieces of regular old cookware, and comes with a lockable lid, steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a built-in rest.

    18. Music Listography, a twist on a journal that'll encourage the woman you inherited your *excellent* taste in music from to create lists to document her favorite albums, concerts she wishes she could travel back in time to, songs she's think are about them (big Main Character energy), and so much more.

    19. An air fryer (from the makers of the INSTANT POT!!) so she can crisp up leftovers, make homemade versions of her favorite fried foods (without having to deal with hot oil), and more.

    20. A customized travel photo book you can fill with images from your *last* trip together — then the two of you can flip through and reminisce while you start to think about your next one.

    Six example books

    21. A Daphne Bridgerton-inspired ribbon hair clamp that made me go full 😍😍😍 when I saw it, and I know will make your mom (who 100% participated in the *previous* claw clip trend in the '90s) do the same when she unwraps it.

    22. A Nutribullet with a full-size blender and two to-go blender cups if she loves smoothies, hummus, soup, and other blended delicacies you don't need to make A TON of at a time — but hates using extra dishes. AKA every single person. Her old blender wishes it could.

    23. A pair of long-distance touch lamps to literally light up each other's lives — without the need to pick up the phone or say a word. They're connected to Wi-Fi, so if one of you touches their lamp to turn it on, the other lamp will glow, no matter how far away it is.

    24. A stylish acrylic block and set of sleek black knives, because this'll really dress up her kitchen — and the bonus is they actually are really great knives too!

    25. A dainty 14-karat gold-plated necklace with cubic zirconia in the shape of her zodiac sign's constellation — or even give her two (her zodiac sign + yours) to wear stacked together!

    The 12 constellation shapes with their respective signs

    26. An HP portable photo printer that'll print photos on-the-go so she can easily carry around and show off that one photo of you that you HATE but she loves. Why is that always the way?

    27. The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, a volume filled with delicious dishes like treacle tart (Harry's favorite, duh!), Kreacher's French onion soup, and Mrs. Weasley's mince pies — all with the scenes that inspired them. Get ready for an HP-and-related-foods marathon all weekend long, just you two.

    28. The entire *extended* Lord of the Rings film trilogy on a whopping 15 discs, including almost two hours of extended movie content (plus 26 hours of bonus material) whether she is the one who originally introduced you to the series, or you just want to share one of your favorite fandoms with her. You could even say watching this once a year will become a ~hobbit~.

    The set of DVDs

    29. A vintagey 8-in-1 entertainment center that'll do it all: play records, stream music from her phone via Bluetooth, record from vinyl, CD, or cassette directly to USB, AND play CDs, cassettes, aaaaand AM/FM radio. It's all one device to make things super easy, but she still might call you to help set it up — I'm not making any promises.

    30. A vegan leather ~shacket~ (aka a shirt-jacket), because she dressed you for *years* and now it's time to return the favor. Pose for a mother-child Instagram to show everyone your fashion sense was very much hereditary.

    31. A wireless karaoke microphone that'll bring the party wherever she goes and is a big plus for family get-togethers. It's compatible with any smartphone or tablet and can jam for up to *10 hours* on a single charge. That's a lot of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" on repeat.

    32. A mega-lengthening Vivienne Sabo mascara for the mom who taught you everything you know about makeup. But make sure to also get one for yourself, because her lashes can*not* look better than yours. Not fair.

    33. A compact Shiatsu massager she can use on her neck, back, legs, and more to relax overworked muscles. Plus, it has an optional heat setting for even more pain relief. It's like giving the gift of a portable spa!

    34. A Glossier gift set of their top-selling Boy Brow and Generation G lipstick for an effortless makeup-no-makeup look she can achieve in just a few swipes.

    35. A Hydrow rowing machine with a 22-inch touchscreen and speakers for an ~immersive~ at-home rowing experience that'll make her feel like she's...actually on a body of water. There are also guided workouts (some led by actual Olympians) — basically it's the Peloton of rowing.

    36. Or a foldable exercise bike with all the basic features she needs if she doesn't have space (and you don't have the budget) for a Peloton but wants access to a quick cardio workout at home. It has a magnetic tension system to up the difficulty, and handy features on the screen so she can track her time, speed, distance, and more!

    The silvery bike, with text "Men's Health editor's choice" larger seat cushion, 300 pound extended weight capacity

    37. Acrylic drop earrings for a statement look that won't hang heavy from her lobes. They come in several hues so you can find the perfect pair for whatever color scheme her wardrobe comes in.

    The earrings, with gold wire hooks and half-moon multicolor resin hanging from them

    38. A trio of spicy sauces (honey, maple syrup and gochujang sriracha) she'll want to drizzle on *everything* — think roasted veggies, pizza, and cocktail glass rims. Y U M. And when you come over for dinner YOU'll reap all the benefits.

    39. Paris Street Style, a coloring book filled with patterns, flat lays, outfits, hair styles, street scenes and more inspired by Paris and Parisian style that'll make her say "Ooh la la!"

    The cover of the book

    40. A personal mini concrete fireplace that runs for 50 minutes on 5 ounces of isopropyl alcohol so she can enjoy a little cozy warmth in the backyard/porch/patio without installing a whole firepit.

    The round mini fireplace with a copper bottom

    41. A pair of Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones so she can work out, get a snack, or ignore text messages from you while listening to their favorite playlist — all without being ~tied down~.
