From bigger-ticket items to subscriptions that keep on giving. They’re the perfect options to split with siblings or other family members so you can shop smarter and make her Mother’s Day memorable. Win-win.

A wearable that’ll help her reduce her stress levels…

This sleek device uses touch therapy to manage her stress, help her sleep better, and keep her focused. It sends tiny vibrations to her wrist or ankle, with an intensity level that can be adjusted via the app. It’s developed by neuroscientists and physicians and has been shown to reduce feelings of stress by up to 40% on average, and even increase deep sleep by 19%. What’s more important than her health? ($349, Apollo)

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 Legacybox will take outdated VHS tapes, photos, cassettes, negatives, and more.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. 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)

hand-knit cotton weighted blanket in multiple colors

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

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

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. You can also add a personalized message to be included with the first box. Psst...use code SKIMM15 for 15% off your order. ($41.67+/month, Cratejoy)

A Turkish cotton waffle robe she’ll never wanna take off…

There aren't many things we can say about this robe except that a) it’s incredibly soft, and b) it’s a nighttime staple. It’s a gift she’ll use again and again; no need to wait for her next hotel stay. We suggest pairing it with these cozy socks as an added bonus. ($92.65, Brooklinen)

three-inch thick mattress topper made from memory foam

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. ($251.40+, Tempur-Pedic)

google nest front door doorbell camera for added security
Bed Bath & Beyond

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

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. ($229, Bed Bath & Beyond)

An Away suitcase so she can travel in style…

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)

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 locks are smooth, minus the extreme heat damage. Did we mention it can increase shine and decrease frizz? Included with the hair dryer she’ll receive a barrel styling brush, a detangling comb, a heat mat, and three different nozzle attachments. For the mom who loves to style her hair, it really is the gift that’ll keep on giving. ($429, Sephora)

electric kettle

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 leftover water sitting and no unnecessary counter space used. The double-walled stainless steel will also keep the water hot for longer, if she wants a second cup later in the day. With three dreamy colors to choose from, you’re bound to find one that suits her kitchen aesthetic. ($149.95, Nordstrom)

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). ($138, Nordstrom)

Alex Crane

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

Made from 100% Italian merino wool, 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 four neutral colors. ($165, Alex Crane)

Buy it
Great Jones

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. ($215, Great Jones)

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 for stews and roasts, and less of a chance of boiling over. The magic trick? It’ll take up less space on her stovetop, but don’t worry — all of the traditional features are still included, like the even heat distribution and the durable enamel coating. Stock is limited, so don’t wait. ($380, Nordstrom)
