Win-win.

Psst...Want more ideas? Check out all of our other Mother's Day gift guides here.

A digital keepsake of all your old family photos and videos…

It’s pretty simple. Legacybox will take outdated VHS tapes, photos, cassettes, negatives, and more. Then the magic happens. In six to eight weeks, you’ll receive those originals back, plus a new digital version via thumb drive, DVD, or as a download from the cloud. So she can rewatch baby videos, talent shows, and all those soccer games she taped. And save them to her phone to share with others. Get the tissues ready. ($35.98+, Legacybox)

A structured tote made from Italian leather…

It’s sleek, lightweight, and roomy. The exterior is water- and wear-resistant. And it comes with an interior zippered pouch for valuables. It’s the everyday essential she can throw over her shoulder before running errands. You can even monogram it for free. ($215, Leatherology)

Buy it

A weighted blanket to help her get a more restful sleep…

Because no one loves tossing and turning. Evenly distributed weight while she snoozes can help produce a deeper sleep, plus more serotonin and less cortisol. Aka more relaxing vibes and less stress. It’s made from hand-knit cotton (not tiny artificial beads typically found in weighted blankets), so it feels soft and breathable. Sweet dreams. ($199+, Bearaby)

Buy it

A monthly subscription box that’s all about mom…

It’s packed with things she’ll love. Like coffee pouches, skincare masks, chocolate, spa necessities, and more. Each month is themed differently, so she’ll always have something to look forward to. She’ll also get a curated Spotify playlist in each box, along with tips and tricks for self-care at home. ($54/month, Cratejoy)

Buy it

And a coffee and book subscription to keep her sipping and reading…

Each box includes a classic read, a beverage, and themed goodies. If she’s not a coffee lover, no worries. You can replace it with either tea or hot chocolate. The genre of the book changes monthly, and she can swap it out if she’s already read it. Bookworms unite. ($52.99/month, Cratejoy)

Buy it

Skincare tech she’ll be bragging to her friends about…

Droplette’s award-winning at-home device helps combat the body’s natural breakdown of collagen over time (which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles, btw). It transforms collagen and other proven ingredients that are too big to break through the skin’s barrier into micro-droplets that can actually be absorbed. Translation: It’ll get her glowy results…fast. PS: Skimm’rs get a little something off the price tag. ($299, Droplette)*

Buy it

A collection of mochi ice cream that’ll fully satisfy a craving…

The best part? With this variety pack, she won’t have to choose which flavor is best. She gets them all. The box includes matcha, red bean, vanilla chip, chocolate, passion fruit, lychee, black sesame, ube, salted caramel, strawberry, espresso, and coconut. Bonus: Dairy-free options are also available. ($70, Mochidoki)

Buy it

And a bundle of the famous Levain cookies she’s been wanting to try…

Introducing the chunkiest, gooiest, and (arguably) best cookies of all time. Based in New York City, this women-owned bakery creates cookies that are beyond delicious (they also make breads). This pack comes with chocolate chip walnut, dark  chocolate chocolate chip, dark chocolate peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin. But don’t fret — the cookies can also be found in the freezer section of Whole Foods Market stores. The biggest problem will be whether or not to share them. Which she probably won’t. ($27+/4 pack, Levain Bakery)

Buy it

A washable silk robe that’ll make her feel like royalty…

That’s right: washable. Lunya’s super-soft robe will help her relax in worry-free luxury. No special care needed. Plus it’s thermoregulating. Meaning it’ll help her maintain a comfy body temp all day, every day. Oh, and did we mention it has pockets? ‘Cause it does. ($278+, Lunya)*

Buy it

A wine subscription so she always has a bottle she likes…

You can choose from a one-, two-, or three-month subscription. She’ll be able to redeem that gift card and set up her palette profile. And see what experts recommend, with the flexibility to choose her own bottles (up to four a month). Everything will get shipped directly to her door. Happy hour has arrived. ($60+/one month, Winc)

Buy it

A memory foam mattress topper so she feels like she’s sleeping on a cloud…

This one is 3 inches thick. And backed by 25 years of Tempur-Pedic innovation, so you know it’s legit. The cover can be removed and washed, while the topper material responds to your body’s weight, shape, and temperature. If she’s a hot sleeper, you can upgrade the topper to a cooling one, with a cool-to-the-touch cover. ($319.20+, Tempur-Pedic)

Buy it

A Google Nest doorbell camera so she can see when packages arrive…

And if there’s someone knocking on the front door. The camera allows for a head-to-toe view, so she won’t need to peek out from an upstairs window (especially when a visitor isn’t expected). When someone arrives, the phone app she can download will alert her. She’ll even be able to talk to visitors without opening the door. Safety 101. ($229, Bed Bath & Beyond)

Buy it

An Away suitcase so she can (finally) get back to traveling…

Safely, of course. This suitcase is built to last, and has a durable outer shell to protect all her precious personal items. It’s got a built-in, TSA-approved lock, 360-degree spinner wheels, a hidden laundry bag, and compression straps. Psst...we have this suitcase and really love it. It’s sturdy, rolls smoothly, and has room for everything. We’ve had it for years and it barely has scuff marks. ($275, Away)

Buy it

A Dyson hairdryer to protect her locks from heat damage…

Consider this the ultimate splurge. This hair dryer works ultra fast (trust us, we’ve used it) to make sure her strands are smooth, minus the extreme heat damage. Did we mention it can increase shine and decrease frizz? Because it can. Included with the hair dryer she’ll receive a barrel styling brush, a detangling comb, a heat mat, and three different nozzle attachments. If you’re not convinced yet, the hair dryer has 4.7 out of 5 stars, with over 2,000 reviews. For the mom who loves to style her hair, it really is the gift that’ll keep on giving. ($429.99, Dyson)

Buy it

An electric kettle that’ll bring retro vibes to her kitchen…

This kettle looks too pretty to use, but don’t be fooled, it has 1400 watts of power to heat water for the perfect cup of tea. Plus the mini size will ensure there’s no water left to sit and no extra counter space used. The double-walled stainless steel will also keep the water hotter for longer, if she wants a second cup later. With seven dreamy colors to choose from, you’re bound to find one that suits her kitchen aesthetic. ($149.95, Nordstrom)

Buy it

A pajama set for luxurious lounging and even better sleep…

Okay, we can vouch for this set. These pajamas are heaven; we quite literally never want to take them off. The boyfriend-style pants and button-up top are made of the most touch-worthy spandex and modal cotton for just the right amount of stretch. They always keep us cool while snoozing. Consider them great for movie nights (plus they come in a wide range of colors). ($128, Nordstrom

Buy it

A crew neck sweater that’ll quickly become her favorite…

Made from 100% Italian merino wool (hello, she deserves a splurge), this sweater is such a wardrobe staple she’ll find herself reaching for it no matter the occasion. From taking the dog out for a walk to a potluck at the neighbors’ house, she’ll look polished and feel cozy. Added bonus: After all that wear, she can just throw it in the washing machine. It comes in a dark gray and army green. ($125, Alex Crane)

Buy it

A bakeware set for making all her world-famous desserts…

These nonstick and nontoxic pans are a real treat to look at, but not as big of a treat as all of the homemade cookies, pies, loaves, and cakes she’ll make with them. The set comes with seven pieces, from the famous baking sheet Great Jones is known for to must-have circular cake rounds and loaf pans. The one thing that will really have her jumping for joy? Each piece is dishwasher-safe. Customers agree the quality is high so add to cart. ($215, Great Jones)

Buy it

A mirror that doubles as a home gym…

If she’s gotten used to working out at home, give her access to tons of workout classes (from yoga to boxing) right from the comfort of her own home. All she needs to do is mount the Mirror in a clear area and get moving as the screen instructs her through sessions. You can even upgrade her package to include workout essentials like a mat and fitness band starter pack. PS: Use code 350FORMOM to take $100 off, plus free shipping and installation through May 9. ($1,495+, Mirror)

Buy it

A Dutch oven that’s extra deep…

Say hello to the classic Le Creuset with a twist. This one is more spacious, which means more room in stews and roasts and less boiling over. The magic trick? It’ll take up less space on her stovetop. But don’t worry — all the traditional features are still included, like the even heat distribution and the durable enamel coating. Let’s heat things up. ($250, Food52)
