Don’t worry. If you casually print this story and place it on your spouse’s desk, we won’t tell.
It’s time to face the truth, anyway: There are probably A FEW things (minimum) you want for your special day. And you deserve it! But if you can’t think of anything, consider giving this list to your loved ones:
1. A gorgeous and sustainable bouquet
Flowers are classic for Mother’s Day, but instead of getting a bouquet from the grocery store, you should ask for some that are farm-fresh and sustainable. Plus, if your family tends to wait last-minute to make purchases, these can be delivered same-day.
2. A subscription box filled with beauty goodies
Whether you’re obsessed with beauty products or not, having a monthly box of fun goodies to play with is both practical and exciting! The Play! by Sephora beauty subscription box is our favorite because it’s customizable and includes luxury products. Plus, it’s only $10 a month, so hopefully it won’t break anyone’s bank.
3. A Kindle for the avid reader
Even if you already have a Kindle, you might as well upgrade to the latest and greatest version and load it with a few popular novels. The Paperwhite is the best Kindle out there, and you’ll surely get good use out of it. If you don’t need a new Kindle but love to read, you could ask for a Kindle Unlimited subscription, which includes a free 30-day trial and only costs $10/month after that.
4. Speakers for a dancing queen
A speaker with great sound is a winning gift if you love dancin’ around the house. These high-end wireless speakers from Sonos connect through Bluetooth and you can pair multiple together to create the ultimate home audio system. They also work with Amazon Alexa, making it easier for you to listen to her favorite songs on-demand.
5. A hair dryer that’s better than the salon
Let’s face it: We ladies can take a while to get ready. Make your get-ready ritual even easier with the best hair dryer we’ve ever tested. The Harry Josh will give the thickest of hair a great blow out in a little more than 20 minutes, and its sweet mint color is extra charming.
6. A diffuser for endless good scents
Essential oils not only smell good but many people claim they can also improve sleep, lift moods, and boost energy. You can enjoy these spa-like scents with our favorite essential oil diffuser, which lasts up to nine hours and has seven fun colors. Make it a complete gift by asking for some amazing essential oils, too.
7. New recipes for the novice chef
Save yourself the trouble of deciding what’s for dinner by asking for a meal-kit subscription. There are plenty to choose from depending on your food preference and culinary skill, but our favorite was Green Chef.
8. A smart speaker to help her enter the future
Smart speakers are becoming a staple in most modern homes. There are a bunch of smart assistants to choose from, but Google Home has the best search functionality.
9. A pressure cooker for the stressed-out cook
The Instant Pot is still the hottest cult-favorite kitchen gadget—and with good reason. It’s a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, steamer, and more, making it the ultimate cooking machine. If you don’t have one yet, ask for this. Whether or not you’re a whiz in the kitchen, the whole family will be glad you got one.
10. A robot vacuum to clean up for Mom
Who actually likes cleaning the house? No one! Ask for a robot vacuum—like our favorite affordable model—to do the dirty work for you and cross one chore off the list.
11. Cozy slippers to wear around the house
You really can’t go wrong with a pair of UGG Dakota slippers. They have a 5-star rating and over 2,000 reviews on Nordstrom, and they are literally the softest things to walk around in. Plus, they have rubber soles, so you can wear them at home or out and about.
12. A stylish candle that smells amazing
Candles are always a good gift, despite being a little cliché. They smell good and add a nice touch of ambiance. Capri Blue makes quite possibly the best-smelling and best-looking candles around. The Volcano scent caught our eye for its fresh, tropical notes that smell like a summer vacation.
13. A photo collage that’s filled with memories
A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not ask for a collage full of memories? This customizable heart-shaped photo collage art from Minted allows your family the ability to curate the most beloved family photos that you will absolutely adore.
14. A stylish bag that holds everything
Moms somehow always have exactly what the rest of the family needs at all times, whether its a Band-Aid, Chapstick, tissues, or a snack. Sound like you? Ask for a gorgeous bag that’s big enough to fit all of your necessities.
15. A fitness tracker to help with her health goals
Counting your steps can be fun, and fitness trackers provide extra encouragement to help reach health goals big and small. The Fitbit Charge 2 is the best fitness tracker we’ve ever tested and thanks to the interchangeable band, it’s super stylish too.
