Sakara Chocolate Trio

Sakara Chocolate Trio

Go ahead and find us a woman who doesn’t want to get chocolate as a gift. And yes, technically we still consider this a beauty and wellness gift, given that this set contains probiotic, nootropic, and beauty-boosting chocolates. (That yes, are still totally delish.)

This scent isn't new, but it has certainly stood the test of time. And really, why mess with something that just works? Both spicy and woodsy, this bestselling perfume is a favorite of Byrdie senior editor Hallie Gould. The heady mix of leather, musk, cardamom, iris, and violet is unique and intoxicating without being overwhelming. A true classic.

Give her one bottle of this, and you’ll be giving her good hair days for weeks to come. The concentrated treatment—which works on all hair types—strengthens hair from within in, making it look notably softer, smoother, and shinier after every use.

If your mom is into aromatherapy, pair this hand-crafted stone diffuser with her go-to essential oil for a lovely home upgrade. Plus, it looks great as a piece of décor when it's not in use, and its water basin, which is made of BPA-free plastic, is super easy to clean.

Still, its subtle rose scent and pretty packaging make it totally gift-worthy.

mothers day

We love this candle brand, both as much for their addicting scent combos as much as the whimsical and colorful packaging. This trio features Canopy, a verdant green fragrance, Chandelier, a mix of effervescent citrus and deep leather, and Daybed, a floral with notes of peony and rose. In other words, there’s an option for any and all of your mom’s fragrance preferences.
