A mother is a beautiful being who carries you in her body for nine months, brings you into this world, holds your tiny hand as you learn to walk, teaches you right from wrong, attends your recitals, cheers for you at the soccer practices, ignores her own needs to send you off to college, gives you her blessing as you start your life, and stays with you when everyone else leaves, so on and so forth.
There is absolutely no way you can repay your mother in full given all her dedicated efforts. However, what you can do though is make her feel appreciated on a day that’s specially dedicated to her across the globe. This Mother’s Day, give her a super-thoughtful gift, which she’ll enjoy. I have a number of ideas in store regarding this special occasion. Check them out below.
Book of the Month Membership
If your mother is an ardent bibliophile, then surprise her on this Mother’s Day with a ‘Book of the Month’ membership, curated by a panel of expert, celebrity guest judges. The packages vary from $44.99 (for three months) to $149.99 (for twelve months) respectively.
Smart Yoga Mat

You can get your mom Backslash’s self-rolling mat, which is Alexa-compatible and syncs yoga routines with a corresponding smartphone app. It is available on Amazon for $79.95. Place the order now over your speedy network, courtesy of Spectrum deals, and ensure that it arrives on your doorstep on time.
Mothershave already so much on their plate, from picking up kids to paying the bills, that sometimes they forget to treat themselves right. You can step in and make sure her coffee never gets cold by gifting her a stainless steel Hydro Flask mug, which has state-of-the-state insulation and costs only $29.95.

Fancy, yes?
For mothers who’re up on their feet all day, moving from this place to that, what could be a better gift than the softest slip-on shoes in existence? I’m referring to Allbird’s sleek and smooth wool loungers, which are breathable and machine-washable on top of being super-comfortable. These come in a variety of colors and though they may be a bit costly ($95), they are absolutely worth it.

I can’t tell you how many times my mom has forgotten her cellphone at home. She’s always in such a rush and not to mention, distracted.

L’OCCITANE offers a wonderful product in this regard, known as Lavender Foaming Bath, costing only $39. Lavender has a therapeutic scent, anti-inflammatory properties, and many more benefits, which makes it an ideal gift for your mother.
