    1. A pair of library checkout card socks, because they're just about the only person you know who turns their books in on time.


    They come in two sizes and can fit shoe sizes 5.5-12, so your friend mama can rock these no matter what size their stompers are.

    Get them from ModCloth for $12 or Amazon for $9+.

    2. A simple backseat purse holder to keep her car neat and tidy when she's the designated driver for the 17th time in a row.

    The hooks have a side-opening attachment for easy install, so worry not. No seats will be harmed in the organization of this car.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95 (available in black or beige).

    3. An enormous pack of hair styling essentials, because no amount of bobby pins or hair ties will ever be enough...especially when everyone is "borrowing" them. Is hair tie heaven not full?!

    The kit includes 90 hair ties, 90 bobby pins, two combs, a brush, a mini brush and two spin pins. Set. For. Life. (lol jk set for a few weeks.)

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    4. A Burt's Bees multipack to hydrate those smoochers, plus extra to dole out to the crew when the air starts to get a little dry. Winter is coming, after all.

    The pack includes original beeswax, coconut & pear, vanilla bean, mango and, wild cherry. Dibs on mango!

    Get it on Amazon for $14.24.

    5. A pretty tampon and pad holder to stay prepared for when a friend is surprised by ~Aunt Flow~ and only has one yucky-bottom-of-the-bag tampon left. We all know the tampon I'm talking about.


    The 100% cotton pouch has room for three tampons and a pad. It seals with velcro so none of those little guys can escape!

    Get it from EcoHipCustomDesigns on Etsy for $12 (available in a bazillion colors).

    6. A Bad Girls Throughout History Calendar, because she's somehow the baddest AND most organized queen you know. An inspiration.


    The softcover planner features iconic women throughout history. I could say more about them, but I would start crying about how amazing women are and I don't have time for that right now!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 or ModCloth for $16.

    7. A tiny desktop tool kit, because you don't completely understand what her smart-person job is, but you do know that these office supplies are as helpful as they are adorable.


    It comes with a mini tape dispenser with a refill, small staples, a mint stapler, lilac scissors and paper clips, a pink-detailed staple remover, and six push pins featuring cute animals!

    Get it from ModCloth for $12.

    8. An Instax Mini instant camera for documenting all of your times together (and then low-key scrapbooking them).

    These trendy cams are SO fun and easy to use. This version even features a selfie mirror to get every shot juuuuuust right.

    Get it from Amazon for $56 (available in five colors) by itself or $92.14 with a starter film pack.

    9. A pack of Shakespearean insult bandages, because that seems about as close to a "mom joke" as you can get. Alas, poor Yorick...has a booboo.

    Thy prize awaits inside (and so do 15 functional bandages)!

    Get them from Amazon for $7.96 for one tin or $13 for two tins.

    10. A portable external battery to relieve the stress that her phone may shuffle off this mortal coil! We're still doing Shakespeare jokes, right?

    This baby can charge an iPhone two full times! One for her, one for you.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in four colors).

    11. An awe-inspiring variety pack of granola bars that are sure to satiate the friend group at long last.

    The standard box includes 58 (!!!) individually wrapped granola bars in chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin. For the ultimate mom move, upgrade to the "Back to School" box for s'mores, dark chocolate chunk bars, and oatmeal raisin (sorry, still stuck with oatmeal raisin no matter what).

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 ($13.29 for the "Back to School" pack.)

    12. A cozy Madewell cardigan for staying snug while she kindly accompanies you to the bank because you lost your wallet, the DMV because you lost your wallet, and the wallet store lost your wallet.


    Made from a blend of nylon, merino wool, and alpaca, this cardigan is unbelievably soft and comfortable. I would know, I have literally borrowed it from a friend before.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (available in sizes XS–3X).

    13. A pair of pom-pom mittens, because you actually get to have lovely mittens when you're not *100% guaranteed* to lose them! Your friend can handle these beauties. You? Maybe one day...


    Can you believe these are machine washable? Such a bonus for what were already glorious mittens.

    Get them from ModCloth for $32.

    14. An adorable pack of sheet masks for hosting the next group Netflix binge. There's no more pleasurable disparity than watching The Handmaid's Tale with a nice face mask on. Maybe if we stay hydrated enough, everything will be fine!


    The masks come in rose, cactus, pearl, green tea, and lotus. Have fun arguing over which one of you is a *pearl*. And while you're at it, which one of you is Carrie again?

    Get them from Macy's as a set for $12 or individually from Amazon for $3 each.

    15. A cozy plaid throw for snuggling up on those nights you can't quite peer-pressure her to go out.


    It's also machine washable and dryer-safe, which is good because this friend would actually wash her blankets. Also, imagine how good this would feel fresh and warm out of the dryer. Wow.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $68.

    16. A special wine glass she only uses when her friends aren't around, inexplicably WRESTLING WHILE HOLDING WINE AGAIN.


    Get it from Anthropologie for $16.

    17. A PopSocket for absolutely crushing those group selfies *without* crushing her phone!

    The PopSocket is popular for a reason! It can save your phone from a dreaded tumble or even serve as a lil stand so you can watch videos hands-free.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A set of four mini lipsticks by Anastasia Beverly Hills that *just* push the boundaries of her lip color comfort range.


    The shades are named "Soft Pink," "Kiss," "Spice," and "Dead Roses." Just thought you might want to know.

    Get it from Amazon for $21 or Sephora for $21.

    19. A copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, because cleaning is the gift that keeps on giving.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    20. A macrame plant hanger since, let's face it, they're the only person you know who can keep plants alive.


    Handmade from cotton cord to keep her plants nice and snuggled.

    Get it from MangoAndMore on Etsy for $14.26.

    21. And a purse organizer with ELEVEN POCKETS for storing all of the lovely gifts you gave her!!! She will treasure them always and never let them out of her sight.

    May I mention the ELEVEN POCKETS again? The organizer also has handles for easy transfer from bag to bag. That's pretty awesome, but not as awesome as ELEVEN POCKETS.

    Get it on Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors and three sizes).

    Your friend mom is gonna be JAZZED! You're such a good friend child.
