    1. A scented candle with a unique twist: it has two wicks — one that winds and burns around the edge of the candle in a spiral (which self-extinguishes when it's done) and a wick in the middle to burn traditionally after the spiral is done!, The Grommet

    The gif above is sped up, btw!

    Price: $12.95+ (available in three sizes and seven scents)

    2. An Aura digital photo frame so she can enjoy photos of friends and family whenever she walks by; just download the iPhone and Android–compatible app, and anyone in your family can share *unlimited* photos. It's basically magic.

    The Grommet

    Price: $299 (available in three colors)

    Promising review: "We gave this as a Christmas gift to my in-laws and they were thrilled. We got it set up in just a few minutes and even my technology challenged father-in-law was able to easily upload photos. It will be great to be able to send photos directly to the frame from afar so they can see always see updated photos of their grandkids. Highly recommended!" —Jill

    3. An assortment of edible cookie dough (she can choose her own flavors) with the promise that everyone else will keep their hands OFF her stash — for once.

    The Grommet

    Price: $40 (pick any four flavors (or double, triple, or quadruple up on the same flavor!) from the following: chocolate chip, birthday bash, cookies 'n' dream, s'more please, peanut butter cup, milk 'n' cookies, vegan birthday bash, and vegan chocolate chip)

    Promising review: "Wow! This is so good! I couldn't have imagined how good it actually is, but I have to say it's tastier than real cookie dough with eggs. I'm going to put in another order soon!" —Gayle

    4. A pewter and freshwater pearl necklace so she can carry her little ~peas in a pod~ around her neck at all times.

    The Grommet

    The pea pod is made of pewter, and each pea is an individual freshwater pearl — all strong on a sterling silver chain.

    Price: $40+ ($2 extra for every additional pearl up to five peals)

    5. An illusion vase designed to make it look like the flowers are growing straight up. The trick? Brass pins you stick in the stems so they stand tall (and take in all the water you need).

    The Grommet

    The vase comes with five brass pins (and hold up to five flowers), but you can display fewer if you choose — one flower will look cool and dramatic!

    Price: $19.95

    Promising review: "I love these. The flowers actually last longer than a traditional vase, and don’t rot in the water. However, you must keep an eye on the water as the flowers suck it up quickly. I re-ordered four more and bring them as gifts rather than a bottle of wine" —David

    6. A special box she is going to be convinced is actual magic. Get this: Inside is a digital screen where up to 20 people can send love notes, a message, or just say hello — all from the accompanying app.

    The Grommet

    The pixelated heart on the front turns upside down to let her know a message is waiting under the lid!

    Price: $99.99

    Promising review: "I travel frequently for work and the Love Box gives me a opportunity to send a special message while I’m away. I know that seeing the heart spinning makes us just a bit closer each message I seRobert

    7. An infinity scarf printed with text from her favorite literary passage. It's the perfect gift for the woman who encouraged your love of reading in the first place!

    The Grommet

    There are 35 OPTIONS, including Pride and Prejudice, Matilda, Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, and so many more.

    Price: $48 (available in 35 passages)

    8. An antibacterial silicone face brush that'll banish makeup, grime, and dead skin cells with each vibrating pulse — without overly stripping skin. You're basically giving her the best skin of her life!

    The Grommet

    It just requires two AA batteries, and she can even use it in the shower!

    Price: $38.95

    9. A pair of foldable faux snakeskin sneakers she can tuck into her bag for an on-the-go shoe transformation that's both stylish and feet-saving.

    The Grommet

    Price: $29.99

    Promising review: "I love these shoes — I have them in turquoise and black. They are casual enough to wear with shorts or jeans, but dressy enough to pair with a skirt at work. Definitely my go-to shoes when I don't want to wear athletic shoes or heels!" —Carrie

    10. A cold brew tea set for any mom who loves iced tea as much as mine does. Since it brews more slowly, the flavor is gentler and super smooth — refreshing!

    The Grommet

    It comes with green and white tea, too! Just add the tea (loose leaf or bags), cold water, and let steep in the fridge overnight.

    Price: $80

    11. A heated back massager that'll last a heck of a lot longer than a gift card to a spa. The eight rotating heads workout out aches and pains, and the optional heat setting soothes those knotted muscles. Ahh!

    The Grommet

    The best part? It's chargeable (each charge lasts up to 2.5 hours) so she can enjoy it on the couch and far away from an outlet.

    Price: $150

    Promising review: "Purchased this item for my spouse who is having lower back issues. Turned out that it is easy to use, handsome design and provides a nice massage (at various speeds)." —Michael

    12. A stylish hip flask–style water bottle that'll actually encourage her to keep up with her liquid intake — I mean just look at how cute the textured silicone sleeve is.

    The Grommet

    Btw, every purchase provides two days of safe drinking water through Water For People.

    Price: $14.95 (available in four colors)

    Promising review: "It doesn't spill, it don't leak, it's absolutely great. Best water bottle ever; it's so good I bought two!" —Marcella

    13. A color-changing ultrasonic diffuser for a mini relaxation session in the comfort of home. She can add her favorite essential oils, sit back, and enjoy the fragrant mist.

    The Grommet

    And the mist intensity and light settings are adjustable, too! It can run up to 20 hours on low and up to 8 hours on high, and it'll auto shut-off when the water runs low.

    Price: $32 (originally $40)

    Promising review: "This diffuser is easy to use and works quickly to enjoy. I've been using it constantly since it arrived and I took it out of the box! It helps keep the bedroom hydrated and smelling good." —Ruth

    14. A wanderlust journal to inspire her to both capture memories and make plans for future ventures alike.

    The Grommet

    It has eight chapters, each for a new destination. They're filled with questions and prompts to best record her favorite memories — plus list pages to take note of "favorite restaurants" and more.

    Price: $34.95

    Promising review: "This was a gift for my daughter in law who with her husband and kids travels extensively. She love it and is away right now using it...I highly recommend this for the person who likes to keep track of all their comings and goings!" —Patti

    15. And/or a metallic scratch-off map that'll serve as a gorgeous piece of wall art *and* help you guys mark off where you've been and where you'd like to go as a family.

    The Grommet

    Price: $33+

    16. A pair of flexible indoor/outdoor slippers to provide tons up support, no matter what she's doing — just like her fam does! They contour to the foot for complete comfort, and you can fold 'em up for travel and even toss them in the washing machine!

    The Grommet

    These bbs have over 200 reviews and a 4.7/5 star average. Just sayin'.

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes S–XL and four colors)

    Promising review: "As someone who is ALWAYS on the prowl for for comfy shoes, FitKicks fits the bill. There is no need to 'break in' these slippers; they adapt to your feet immediately. The soft and silky interior lovingly caresses your feet, and the supple outside and soles provide good coverage and skid-proof walking security. Whatever color you choose, it's all about the glorious comfort. " —Pamela

    17. A *cordless* flat iron that'll keep her from getting tangled up while perfecting her 'do. And it releases ~negative ions~ to seal the hair's cuticle for incredibly shiny results.

    The Grommet

    It's perfect for straightening hair far from an outlet and traveling (it has dual voltage for international travel) — it even comes with a heat-proof silicone sleeve. It can last up to 45 minutes on a single charge, and heats up to 430° for super-sleek hair.

    Price: $150

    18. A pima cotton pajama set she'll fall in love with (and never want to change out of) once she touches the super-soft and lightweight fabric. Sleeping hot? The struggle is over.

    The Grommet

    Price: $96 (available in sizes XS–XL)

    Promising review: "I have purchased these pajamas from The Grommet three times and find them to be so comfortable, and unlike my usual old flannel pajamas, so quick to to dry in the dryer. Please sell more colors so I’m not looking like I never change my pajamas! Love the shape and style and how cool, fresh and soft the fabric feels against my skin. They do not shrink up during wash. I love wearing pajamas around the house and am sold on Pima cotton fabrics." —Cindy

    19. A deck of adorable and humorous dog playing cards for any mom who gets a little fur-rocious when playing rummy.

    The Grommet

    Price: $12.50

    Promising review: "I really like these cards. The design is so different from every other deck I own. The finish on each card feels good in hand; they’re not slippery that otherwise would make them difficult to fan and hold. Nice cards!!" —Linda C.

    20. A backyard game that blends a bit of cornhole and a bit of mini golf so the whole family can have fun (while she gets her chipping practice in).

    The Grommet

    It comes with two boards, two chipping mats (where you hit from) and six special foam balls.

    Price: $189.95

    21. A set of personalized latitude and longitude camping mugs to remember a special specific location with every sip.

    The Grommet

    Just enter the address or location before adding to cart. Allow up to seven days before the product ships, but in case you shop too late to make it in time, you can print a card to give while the glasses are being created!

    Price: $26.95 (for a set of two; also available in a set of four)

    Promising review: "The perfect gift to commemorate our favorite camping spot. Everyone thinks they are great, and the price is very reasonable." —Tiger

    22. A wine-saving carafe so she can feel free to open a bottle just for a glass (or three) without worrying about the rest spoiling. The lid floats on the surface of the leftover wine, minimizing oxygen contact and helping preserve the vino.

    The Grommet

    It works with *all* non-sparkling wines!

    Price: $38.66 (originally $42.95)

    Promising review: "I have tried different things that are supposed to keep open wine fresh. This one is by far the most simple and sensible that I have used. It works! I love it and I bought another one for the travel trailer also." —Shannon

    23. A zodiac constellation necklace for any mom who checks her whole fam's horoscope every week — or just to let her know you think your family was ~written in the stars~.

    The Grommet

    It comes in a wooden packaging for *super* easy gift-giving, and each purchase helps contribute to the Trust for Public Land.

    Price: $28 (available in all 12 signs)

    Promising review: "I gave this to my wife for Valentines Day and she loves it. The wooden display/holder that it came on is beautiful and my wife has it displayed on her dresser. We love the necklace and The Grommet!!" —Donald
