Your mom is the woman who loved you first and might still be the only lady in your life who can successfully put up with your antics. And for that, she deserves a Valentine’s Day gift. And for you to call her more. (Is it that hard to pick up the phone?)
While the gifts are **ahem** slightly different than what you would get your significant other, they still should speak to your relationship and what you know she really likes. Since you can’t deliver Ina Garten or Martha Stewart holding an extra dry, extra strong martini on a silver platter, check out these options from Amazon.
You probably already have Prime and these will show up with the magic of a minimum of two-day delivery and even faster if you spend that little extra. (She is your mom after all.)
Because mom could use some tranquility – enter a water fountain sculpture that will add the relaxing notes of a gurgling, bubbling stream into her daily routine. It’s the least you can do for raising her blood pressure and all the sleep she lost since you were ripped from her birth canal.
If you really want to tug on the ‘ol heartstrings, gift mom a nice frame and include a family photo, or one that has significant value to her. Including photos of Guy Fieri, He Man, various football players or some random child are not encouraged but offered for your consideration.
Dishwasher safe and fun to display, this burst of color will be welcome in (most) kitchens. It never hurts to have even more coordinating kitchen tools, and this set comes with the perpetually welcome and pretentiously labeled “Le Creuset” stoneware crock.
A cashmere wrap is always appreciated because of its versatility. When you’re traveling it’s an airplane blanket! It’s a scarf! It’s a wrap you can wear over your other clothes when you need an extra, warm layer! Best of all – it’s one-size-fits-all and no one gets offended!
Yet another Instagram sensation and exercise in self-care all in one, bath bombs are one of those things you can never have enough of. It also has the benefit of not being offensive in any way shape or form, and she can easily re-gift it if it’s not really her thing. Plus, moms love it when you acknowledge that they deserve some “me” time.
We’ve all gotten “the talk” from our dentists about how it’s so much more effective and fun to use an electric toothbrush. Give mom thanks for driving to and paying for all those braces appointments with the Cadillac of sonic toothbrushes she would never buy herself. She won’t stop bragging about the thoughtful gift to her bridge group.
Moms love fun sayings! Moms love throw pillows! Add the two together, and you have an easy gift that won’t break the bank. She’ll also appreciate the nod to one of her favorite activities. Just remember, you also need to order a pillow insert for it.
Practical and adorable as all hell, hedgehog dryer balls help soften fabrics and reduce static. It’s one of those silly things she’ll appreciate, and make a lighthearted gift. Just don’t ask her to do your laundry right after presenting it.
Who doesn’t want and need more Bob Ross in their life? This self-painting mug creates its own scenery – When it’s cold, it’s a blank slate. After you add hot liquid, the mug transforms into a beautiful Bob Ross painting. When doesn’t caffeine create a masterpiece?
In a not so subtle nod to your Mother’s attitude during your childhood, gift her the acknowledgement that she was barely above water with your former antics. Plus, what mom doesn’t love making lists?
For the Starbucks fanatic that operates better after her first or second cup of Joe, bring the beloved store to her so she can enjoy it as it was meant – still in your pajamas and bathrobe.
Upset that the flowers you’ll end up blowing dough on won’t last the week? Get her some silk options that won’t wither and die like her hopes for grandchildren anytime soon. This silk peonies and Casablanca lily arrangement will last a lot longer than the real thing and still look damn good.
Half the fun of getting a pedicure is the footbath associated with it. Grab her one of these so she can turn those Netflix and wine marathons into a true luxury experience.
