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.

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.
