    2. 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.

    amazon.com

    It's cruelty-free, smudge-proof, and removes easily at the end of the day with water.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all, and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!!" —Sophie Johnson

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $24.80 (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I never ever ever ever ever do my hair. Literally. I decided to buy a curling wand after looking at all of the great reviews it had. I looked at CHI and other expensive brands too, but they had nowhere near the reviews this wand did. When I saw the amazing reviews that people had left I knew I should give it a shot. HOLY CRAP GUYS this wand is amazing! I would have paid $150 for this thing! I do my hair literally all the time now, and it takes me 15 minutes at the most, and is way prettier than straightening it. Plus, you can use a wand several different ways to give you a different look. So I can go from southern belle curls to sexy voluminous curls in no time. I'm seriously considering buying another just in case I love this one or it breaks. And about burning yourself, this is my first wand and I still haven't burnt myself, and I don't use the glove either, so don't be nervous, just pay attention!" —Shelby B.

    Promising review: "I chose this Kindle based on the features I was looking for. So far so good. I like that you can adjust the font, size, and back light brightness. My other Kindle did not have a back light so I could only read it while sitting under a bright lamp. This one I can read anywhere — even at the beach. And so easy to download books from my public library. I highly recommend." —Golfer2002

    As a personal note, I love my Kindle SO MUCH. I get books immediately downloaded from the library, and I bring it with me *everywhere* I go. I'm literally reading 10 times as many books a year as I was pre-Kindle.

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it." —hine0108

    Amazon offers a "this is a gift" checkbox to remove pricing from the receipt and include a (free) personalized gift message.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99.

    Promising review: "A friend lent me his copy of the first movie with the making-of DVDs and I was gobsmacked, so I ordered my own set immediately. The movies are beautifully done and the behind the scenes documentaries alone are worth the purchase price. One by one I am introducing them to other members of my family. I think it is interesting to note that one of my grandsons has developed an interest in art as a result of viewing the behind the scenes documentaries. Frodo Lives!" —Trivia Queen

    Amazon offers a "this is a gift" checkbox to remove pricing from the receipt and include a (free) personalized gift message.

    Promising review: "I got this for our family to do together. We love it! We love that each month is a different place, and that we learn really interesting things about that place as we're going through the puzzles. The puzzles are varied — in type and difficulty — and I love the little things you get in each package (maps, pictures, and one larger item to help with several of the puzzles). Lots of fun, and the Facebook community is so helpful (with no spoiler!), too. Great for families, and puzzle lovers!" —Jennifer

    Goldbelly

    Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "This has to be one of the best gifts for your favorite foodie. It's excellent for so many different kitchen tasks. Makes a big shredding job easy as slicing bread. I've bought several of these for gifts and they were much appreciated. They come in many different colors. Easy to store and a very handy tool to have around for BBQs and Thanksgiving. Pretty much any time that you are working with a large cut of meat, beef, poultry, pork, even a melon, you name it, this is the tool you'll want to reach for every time. Moving from pan to platter would otherwise be unmanageable and spell train wreck in many cases. Not so with these. You will not be disappointed!" —Angelonia

    Amazon offers a "this is a gift" checkbox to remove pricing from the receipt and include a (free) personalized gift message.

    21. A classic black Baies Diptyque candle that'll make her home smell like pure money. Mmmm, luxury.

    Nordstrom

    You don't even need to light these bbs to smell the scent wafting across the room — which is good, because these bbs are expensive, but low-key worth it.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98.

    Promising review: "This is my very first Diptyque candle. I have tried their perfume and was in love but I just thought it was a waste of money buying a very expensive candle. The candle burns slowly and I can see this lasting a long time. The smell is amazing nothing like what you would find at your local Bath & Body. I will only buy Diptyque from now on considering on buying another one or two for the rest of the house. You will have your house smell in a very unique way." —Sunnycal28

    Check out Nordstrom's full assortment of Mother's Day gifts to find your perfect prezzie that'll arrive on time.

    Amazon

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $39.99 (or the individual sauces for $10.99 each).

    Promising review: "Very good, and great for cooking with or adding/spicing up after the good is done. The flavors transform when you cook with them, and it’s delicious. Was a Valentines gift for my partner and he asked for another bottle of the Spicy Maple already. Will definitely be purchasing again!" —Kyla

    25. 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!

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    Promising review: "Over the years I've bought and returned a few different massagers. The ones that attach to the chair are just too big. The smaller ones hurt or just vibrate. The sharper image ones are junk. So... I took a chance with this one. Wow! This really works. I like that it's smaller so you can actually position it where you want. It turns in one direction for a little while and then it switches and goes the other way. When it turns, it really feels like a massage instead of that vibrating feeling. I really like how compact it is and how it doesn't move too fast. It's just a steady massage that's hands-free. I can use it on my calfs, legs, back, shoulders and neck. If this breaks I will definitely buy another one. This is the best massager I ever had." —cbear

    Amazon offers a "this is a gift" checkbox to remove pricing from the receipt and include a (free) personalized gift message.

    Promising review: "I am not a paid person who writes reviews. In fact I usually don't write them at all. But let me start out by saying holy crap! This is amazing, not only was it so easy and fast... I have a salon blowout that actually looks great...and I never went to the salon! So I can't so my hair at all ever. The best I do is flat iron or messy bun, mkay? But I'm obsessed. When I go to the salon it looks great for two days and then bam I'm crying, 'cause I can't get my hair pretty like she did it, and now I hate it and myself. Sound familiar? Well I'm living proof this is amazing and it truly works. I won't lie I was hesitant because this looks and sound like crap/too good to be true. It's not!!! Happy buying — I'm buying another for my mom for Xmas how awesome!" —tangi raysor
