Your mom deserves the very best that life has to offer. She brought you into the world, taught you everything she knew, and kicked your butt a few times when you deserved it. Now it’s time to thank her with a give that keeps giving. Your mom deserves to be spoiled, and these gift ideas definitely hit the mark.

A Pampering Session – For Her House

If your mom is a well-known neat freak, her idea of bliss may be a full-home deep cleaning. Check out Groupon, Amazon, and businesses in your local area to find a comprehensive cleaning package at a reasonable price. While you’re treating your mom to a delicious brunch, cleaning pros will be hard at work scrubbing her showers and dusting her shelves. Imagine Mom’s surprise when she returns home to find a perfectly clean and orderly house!

Or gift her popular and viral tools that’ll actually make cleaning fun, like the Bissel Little Green Machine ($98.59) or the Tineco Wet/Dry Cordless Vacuum & Mop for Hard Floors ($279.99)

One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler

If your mom is still a stickler for her beauty routine, she’ll definitely appreciate a new hair styling tool. Consider a one-step hairdryer and styler that brushes and blow-dries simultaneously, like the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer and Brush ($40.49). You’ll give your mom the gift of a salon-worthy blowout, minus the tired arms or trip to the salon.

Bath Bombs and Plush Robe Set

Every mother deserves to soak in the tub and let the world melt away. Help your mom pamper herself with a gift of bath bombs and a plush bathrobe. In case you missed the frenzy when they surged in popularity, bath bombs are small balls of Epsom salts and fragrances that give bath water a lovely aroma and sizzle. It’s the 21st-century alternative to a bubble bath with relaxing scents like lavender, strawberry, coconut, and more in this 12-piece bath bomb set for under $25.

Temperature Controlled Mug

Yes, this is a thing! Even if your mom already has a cabinet crammed full of mugs, she’ll definitely appreciate this temperature-controlled mug. It doesn’t matter how long her mug sits before mom finally gets around to taking a few sips- it will still be a perfect drinking temperature. The most well-known mug in this category is the Ember 10 oz Smart Mug with 80 minutes battery life ($98.79), but if you need a budget-friendly version, you can also gift a Mug Warmer ($19.98) that lets her use her favorite mug on top of the warming plate.

Essential Oils and Diffuser

Aromatherapy has become a very popular alternative to lighting candles. If your mom loves playing with scents and keeping her home smelling lovely, she will love a diffuser with essential oils ($29). Each oil has its purpose, like lavender for relaxation or peppermint with lemon for a snap of energy. Remember to apply the $10 coupon if it’s still available when you look!

At-Home DNA Test

The rise of DNA kits has helped families across the world connect with their ancestry and learn more about their lineage. Grab your mom an AncestryDNA test ($39) for a truly unique and heart-felt gift.

Customized Doormat

If your mom is sassy, she’ll love a customized doormat that says more than “Welcome!” Check out Etsy for different styles and options. A few of the most popular doormat inscriptions include, “There’s, like, a bunch of kids in here,” and “Come Back with Coffee.”

Book of the Month Club

If your mom loves to read, she’ll appreciate a Book of the Month Club subscription. You can choose between a 3, 6, or 12-book subscription. This is a great choice for moms who haven’t committed to a Kindle yet and still want to feel the weight of a book in their hands. Or support the local bookstores and give her a gift card so she can go choose the books herself!

Amazon Kindle

On the other hand, if your mom is a book junkie who is always tempted to pack ten different paperbacks for every vacation, a Kindle is exactly what she needs. Compared to a tablet or iPad’s glossy, fragile screen, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is durable, easy to read in the sun, and affordable. The most recent version is even waterproof!
