5. New skincare set
On her special day Mom deserves to glow up. So give her a new skincare product or a new skincare set for a gift, and watch her glow with happiness.
For a start, a mud mask. The New York Biology Dead Sea Mud Mask is great for cleaning dead skin, clearing and reducing pores, and treating acne, blackheads, and oily skin. It works for all skin types, especially for sensitive skin. This will make Mom’s face as soft, smooth, and youthful as a baby’s.
If you’re looking for a full skincare set, the I DEW CARE Vitamin To-Glow Pack Skin Care Set contains Vitamin C serum, lip mask, and gel for bright and blooming skin. This is the one that will make Mom’s skin glow, and make her glow with happiness, too.
Or how about you gift Mom her own set of skincare tools? Like the BAIMEI Jade Roller and Gua Sha Stone. These are for massaging the face, smoothening wrinkles, and reducing eye bags, for a face that always looks fresh and rejuvenated.
6. New makeup kit

9. A new phone
A new phone would be a really awesome gift, Samsung Galaxy S20. It’s not as pricey as the higher-end models, and it offers a lot of good features, like a fast processor, good camera, great display, and sufficient battery life.
10. A new phone case
If not a new phone for Mom, then why not a new phone case? The MOSNOVO Case looks gorgeous with its floral print, but don’t let its dainty look fool you. It’s tough, it’s durable, and it offers a lot of protection against shocks, scratches, bumps, and more. It’s the perfect accessory to give Mom’s phone protection and a beautiful flair at the same time.
11. A new laptop
As the work from home set-up continues, acknowledge and support Mom’s hustle and hard work in her job or business with a brand new laptop. Now laptops tend to be quite expensive. Fortunately, the Acer Aspire 5 is an affordable laptop that’s packed with a lot of features. This slim, compact laptop has a fast and powerful processor, good graphics, and long battery life. Unless Mom has a job or business that requires extreme processing power and graphic capabilities, this laptop should be perfect for all of her computer needs!
12. A smart watch
This Mother’s Day, pick a gift for Mom that’s a step above the traditional – and oftentimes cliché – gifts. A smart watch, for instance, would be a great idea. It’s modern, it’s novel, and it’s absolutely functional.
Of course, a lot of smart watches are a bit on the pricey end. But not the Fitpolo Smart Watch. It’s light on the budget, but not light on features. Apart from displaying the time, it accurately records and tracks fitness and everyday activities, monitors heart rate, analyzes sleep, etc. It also receives calendar notifications, SMS, incoming calls, etc. And it’s compatible with most iOS and Android smartphones.
If you want to support Mom’s health and fitness goals, this is the perfect gift to get her.

14. New furniture
If you want to show how big your love is for Mom, then get her a big gift. Like a new piece of furniture.
Like the Walker Edison Side Table. It’s a delightful side table with a minimalist, modern look, a white marble top, and elegant gold metal legs. This will fit well in the living room or in the bedroom.
Or the Nathan James Theo 5-Shelf Bookcase, a modern, minimalist, open wall bookshelf for all of Mom’s books, magazines, potted plants, and other small pieces of home decor. This is a bookshelf that will get noticed, and that will get talked about. Mom will like just how elegant this looks, and she’ll love that it’s got a lot of room for her stuff.
Also a great idea is a recliner. The Christopher Knight Home Chair is an excellent choice. It’s a classic armchair for Mom to curl up in while reading a book, or lay back on after a long day. It’s soft, it’s comfy, and the white and blue floral pattern just looks so fabulous.
If you’re not sure about a recliner, why not opt for a giant bean bag? Like the Chill Sack Bean Bag Chair, a giant bean bag that’s filled with foam and fun. This one is soft and comfy and will add a playful touch to the living room, or any room for that matter.
15. New home decor

This Mother’s Day, why not give Mom a good book, and some peace and quiet to read it? There are plenty of books to choose from, so you’ll never run out of options.
For instance, Sheila Heti’s Motherhood: A Novel…
…or Delia Owen’s Where the Crawdads Sing…
Flowers never go out of style. Like these beautiful Roses in a Box by Soho Floral Arts. They’re real roses, by the way, in case you’re wondering. They look gorgeous, they smell gorgeous, and they last for quite a while.
19. A card
If nothing else, then give Mom a Mother’s Day card. Now this Hallmark Mother’s Day Popup Card looks quite lovely, don’t you think?
20. A blog
This might seem like a totally weird choice, but there are a lot of reasons why a blog can make for an awesome gift for Mom. First of all, blogging can become Mom’s hobby and pastime, a way to connect with a community of fellow moms and share insights and stories.
Second, if she gets serious at it, blogging can become her full-time business that earns her full-time passive income.
Third, a blog is very affordable. It costs only a few dollars each month, and all the resources to build a blog and make a living out of it are available for free on the Internet. In fact, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to start a blog for beginners and earn a full-time income.
A blog is definitely a great gift for stay-at-home moms who would like to start their own business, or working moms who want a side hustle (and a change of career, if her blog does well). You never know, but Mom might have the skill and hustle to make it big in the blogging world and start earning UP TO $10,000 a month! Seriously!
