    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm the kind of person who used to always buy the printed copies (I love the smell and feel of books). But I've got to admit this is a really practical way to carry around your books when traveling (it's really light and easy to take everywhere), and it really does feel like reading an actual book (compared to tablets and reading on your phone). The waterproof feature it's really just a wonderful plus." —Daniela

    Promising review: "I received a six-quart Lapis Blue Le Creuset Dutch oven as a wedding gift over 31 years ago. I have used it for everything under the sun. It is very well loved and very well used! It is my favorite soup-making pot. The best part is it looks literally brand new. The handle, the paint, the interior are flawless. And I have used it in the oven, on high heat on the stove for extended periods of time, and then right into the dishwasher. I have replaced literally everything else in my kitchen over the years except my Dutch oven. My step-daughter just got engaged and we will be giving her her own Le Creuset dutch oven this Christmas. I can't recommend it highly enough, it is a beautiful and worth-every-penny staple for any kitchen." —BugseyGirl

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot. Highly recommended!!!" —Stereoman

    Canon

    It's Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth enabled!

    Promising review: "Incredible camera for its clarity and portability. The night features made my trip to Guatemala a great success. I was warned prior to buying that it would be no better than a new iPhone camera — well, those assumptions were wrong. Highly recommend for an easy to operate point-and-shoot if you are going on any long travel trips and want to pack light." —George

    Promising review: "My mother has really bad allergies and lung problems. During flu season she was horribly sick, she could not breathe, she could not sleep, and could not stop coughing. I quarantined her room (cleaned it like crazy, decontaminated it) and placed this bad boy (air purifier) into her room and kept the room closed. I kid you not, her breathing improved so much, the only place she could really breathe was her room, because that is where the air purifier is placed. This thing really helped my mother and I am considering investing in another, if you can at least keep the air in your own house clean, why not. I totally recommend." —AllabouttheTruth

The next UncommonGoods magazine I got had this in it. How perfect! A place for needles, thread, and scissors! She was so amazed by the gift!" —Lhjelle

    Get it from Uncommongoods for $58.

    16. A sophisticated leather backpack for an on-the-go mom who's constantly on the hunt for a bottomless bag à la Mary Poppins. The best part is it can also be worn as a satchel, crossbody, or tote.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $79 (available in two colors).

    20. A jar of nourishing almond body milk for keeping her skin soft and supple even during allergy season.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Liquid gold! I can't believe I spent this much on body lotion, but I'm glad I did! I love this product! Goes on silky smooth, and the smell is gentle and clean. My skin feels amazing after I use it. It doesn't take much to absorb into your skin so you can use it sparingly. Also, the jar is heavy glass so I can see myself reusing it in a craft project!" —Mel H

    Get it from Amazon for $54.

    21. A sleek glass water bottle with a silicone sleeve so she can stay hydrated on the way to work.

    Amazon

    The smaller opening makes it easier to drink out of. Plus, it's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "It seems like a lot to spend on a water bottle, right? I thought so too. BUT, I had the last bkr maybe for two years, which might not seem like a lot...but that thing went everywhere with me! Work, gym, spin class, countless flights—not to mention just anytime I was running errands. I can’t tell you how many times I dropped it or it rolled out of my car onto asphalt/pavement. Countless times! I mean hundreds—I’m that girl! And it survived it all until one day it fell off my parents deck onto concrete. So this is my second one! I didn’t hesitate to get a new one immediately. I know there are a lot of options out there for glass water bottles with a silicone sleeve—I promise you, this one is the best. The glass is so quality and durable and for us water snobs—your water always tastes super clean. I’m in love with this bottle, it literally doesn’t leave my side. So in short, NO, the price tag isn’t ridiculous, it is so, so, so worth it. Get one, you need one!" —Kelly M.

    Get the 32-ounce size from Amazon for $48 (available in 11 colors).

    22. A box of silky smooth Godiva chocolates because you definitely inherited your sweet tooth from your mama.

    24. A potent treatment oil (formulated with 2% linoleic acid, biotin, and sea kelp extract) to help smooth and strengthen damaged tresses so every day can be good hair day.

    Dermstore

    Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid that works to strengthen and repair damaged hair. Biotin, a B vitamin, helps to reduce hair fall caused by breakage. Sea kelp exacts are rich in vitamins A, B and E, which hydrates and helps to restore elasticity while smoothing the cuticle and enhancing softness.

    Promising review: "I have long, fine, frizzy, thin hair that is pretty damaged from all the highlighting I used to do. I have been using this product with Moroccan oil for a month now and my hair is incredibly smooth and shiny with no flyways. It looks like my split ends are gone after I use this." —Verified Purchaser

    Get it from Dermstore for $58.

    Get them from UncommonGoods for $65.

    26. An Echo Spot so she can catch up on the news before work or catch up with family via video chat — and that's just two of the many, many things this lil' gadget can do.

    Amazon

    You can use the Echo Spot to watch video flash briefings, see music lyrics, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more — all via voice command. You can also ask Alexa to turn on smart home devices, make calls, or order an Uber.

    Promising review: "I just love this thing. Even if it were little more than an alarm clock, I'd love it — it just looks so good. But it's so much more. This was my first foray into a digital assistant that's not on my phone. The number of 'skills' you can enable for it is mind-boggling. I started with having it control our bedside lights. Of course, there's all the usual alarms, weather, general knowledge searches, even games (I particularly like True or False. It'll make a statement and ask if you think it's right. It also keeps score. Great way to pick up interesting facts). I've also connected it to my Arlo security camera. So I just need to say, 'Alexa, show me the front door,' and I can see it on the little screen. I use it to play music a lot. The Amazon music service is great, especially as it usually shows lyrics, too. But I often also use Pandora. So I say something like 'Alexa, play alternative '80s on Pandora,' and she does! You can control volume by the buttons, or by asking Alexa to increase or decrease, or by saying something like 'Alexa, volume five.' Next, I plan to get a smart Alexa-enabled thermostat for the house. I'm a fan." —P. Heald

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in two colors).

    27. A pair of Nike sneakers supportive enough for jogging and stylish enough for running errands.

    Nike

    Promising review: "I got this shoe for traveling around for basketball. This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever had. I have even used it to run and lift in. The cushion is wonderful, and they do not get dirty. This is saying something since my pair are light grey and white. I recommend buying this shoe." —Cdarin

    Get them from Nike for $120 (available in sizes 5–12 and 11 colors).

    28. Super-soft jersey pajamas because your mom likes to feel put together even when she's just lounging around at home.

    instagram.com

    These are made of a modal jersey blend, which feels cool to the touch and slips over skin effortlessly.

    Promising review: "Haven't worn sleepwear in decades and decades, but had no choice in this co-ed vacation cabin on the lake. Expected to toss and turn and get all twisted up the first night. Not for a second! Slept like a baby. And looked great crawling out of bed, too. Taking a break from vacation just to tell you how much I love these pajamas." —damselfish

    Get them from Amazon for $68.68–$139 (available in sizes XS–XL and 12 color combos).

    29. A gentle leave-on exfoliant formulated with 2% BHA (aka salicylic acid) that'll give her smooth and glowing skin in no time.

    This product is paraben-free, fragrance-free, and colorant-free. It's not tested on animals.

    Promising review: "Miracle juice! This BHA liquid is fantastic for eliminating stubborn bumps and refining the skin's texture. My skin already looks really smooth and clear due to years of Paula's Choice. If I get a bump on my neck or any other place, dabbing this on gets rid of it overnight. On a regular basis, I adore the 2% BHA gel. It is hydrating, gentle, and so clean." —Katie

    Get it from Paula's Choice for $29.50. Right now, you can get 15% off sitewide + free shipping!

    30. A wine-chilling vessel for the mother who loves to entertain. Her bottles will always stay at the right temperature for serving. No need for ice buckets!

    The Grommet, instagram.com

    Promising review: "I like a nice chardonnay chilled to the perfect temperature. Unfortunately, when you visit others, you arrive with a bottle that is not longer at the proper temperature and then sits on the counter, unattended. This Vinglace ensures that the wine will remain at its perfect temperature until you are done eating, or have finished the bottle...whichever comes first. I highly recommend it." —Carole

    Get it from The Grommet for $89.95 (available in four colors).

    31. A low-maintenance countertop garden so she can have an endless supply of fresh herbs for all kinds of recipes.

    Macy's

    Promising review: "I was a little apprehensive about this making an espresso that would be up to my expectations after years of haunting fancy coffee shops, but it totally does. I'm also partial to the occasional Americano and the retractable base makes this easy as well. The Pixie device looks classy and modern and has a small footprint on the counter. One of my favorite Amazon purchases in a while." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $172.46.

    33. A colorful enamel bangle bracelet to wear individually or stacked together. They're perfect for adding pop of color to a neutral look.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this gauzy, light, warm scarf! Exactly what I was looking for to keep in my bag while traveling...wanting to pack light but NOT be caught feeling chilled during a March trip to the East Coast. The color is absolutely gorgeous, too." —montana

    Get it from Nordstrom for $99 (available in eight colors).

    39. A cooling rose quartz roller so she can treat herself to a soothing face massage in the morning or before bed.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I love this roller! I chose it because the size is more substantial than others on the market, and it felt more comfortable in my hand.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $60.

    40. A box of large and juicy pears for the lady who deserves the very best. You are the fruit of her womb, after all.

    Promising review: "Literally life-changing, worth every dollar. My husband was having a lot of foot issues and within a week, he was doing great again after using this product once every night for a week. We’ve told friends and family members about this product.

    This set comes with a power/blush brush, an eyeshadow brush, and an eyeliner/brow brush.

    Promising review: "The quality of the handle, especially the fiber, it just feels right. I don't know how to describe it. Once you've tried an Artis brush, the rest of the brushes are just history. You will never pick up any other brushes." —Snacks for rat

    Get a three-piece set from Amazon for $110.

    44. A Vitamix blender for mothers who prefer making ingredients from scratch. This machine can crush uncooked rice into a powder and whole almonds into a paste!

    instagram.com, BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "The holy grail blender, y'all. I grew up with a Vitamix (big, tall, classic model), and since being on my own I have really missed it. I tried food processors (because they're cheaper), less expensive blenders, immersion blenders, etc. Nothing came close to what a Vitamix can do. If you're wondering if it's worth the price, I would give a resounding YES. It's so supportive of a healthy diet (smoothies, soups, scratch-made dips and salsas, nut milks and butters, etc.), and it's stupid easy to use AND clean. What sold me ultimately was 1) the smaller size (the classic ones are larger), and 2) I thought about how much I spend (or would like to spend) at my local smoothie/juice bar. A 16 oz. smoothie costs a ridiculous $8-9, and a juice at least that much, if not more. If I could afford it, I would have gotten one daily. So, this Vitamix pays for itself in about a month." —lovespuppies

    Get it from Amazon for $299.95+ (available in three colors).
