If we had our way, every day would be Mother’s Day. Because truly, is there a harder and more demanding job out there? We think not. But given that there is one dedicated day each year when you really get to show the special women in your life how much you love them and express your gratitude, this is the time to spoil them.
Ahead, the best beauty and wellness gifts—from jade rollers to face masks—that any mom is sure to love. (Just don’t forget to write a heartfelt card.)
Le Labo Santal Eau de Parfum
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.
Augustinus Bader The Cream
Inspired by 30 years of research, this breakthrough cream is beloved by celebrities, skincare fanatics, and Team Byrdie. Ultra-lightweight and insanely hydrating, it's sure to make your Mom a fan as well once she sees how soft and supple her skin feels after use.
Homesick Thank You, Mom Candle
Homesick is best known for its candles named for countries, as well as U.S. cities and states, but it also offers candles honoring specific memories, including this one just for moms. With top notes of bergamot, lavender, and sage, the scent of this candle is bright, fresh, and inviting. Plus, no need for wrapping paper or even a card—when you place your order, you can personalize a note that'll appear on the pretty packaging.
Dyson Supersonic Mother's Day Gift Edition
The Dyson Supersonic is one of our favorite hairdryers here at Byrdie HQ, so needless to say we're elated that the brand is offering a special-edition gift package for Mother's Day. The set includes the iconic dryer (in a fuschia and nickel color combo), plus a 1.4-inch round brush and a detangling comb, both of which are designed by the brand.
NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device
This Mother's Day, gift mom this much-buzzed-about facial toning device, which uses microcurrents to firm and tighten the skin. Trust us, the results—which include more prominent cheekbones, as well as reduced fine lines and wrinkles—speak for themselves.
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser
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.
Jenny Patinkin White Nephrite Jade Face Roller
Think of this as an upgrade on the classic jade roller; it’s made with white nephrite jade, which promotes healing, positivity, balance, and inner peace, specifically. The itty-bitty size is also great for travel or to use on smaller areas like around the eyes and mouth.
Aquis Rapid Dry Lisse Hair Turban
If you’re searching for a gift that you know she’ll actually use every day, look no further. With special moisture-wicking fabric, this cuts drying time by up to 50 percent, all while minimizing wet hair-induced damage simultaneously. It comes in nine super cute colors and patterns, too.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge Scented Hair Mist
Perfumes are great, but for a more surprising type of scent gift, go with a scented hair perfume, like this one. The strong yet elegant scent, a mix of jasmine and cedarwood, is sure to please, and the bottle will look gorgeous displayed on her vanity.
La Mer The Mini Miracle Broth Collection
La Mer is known for its truly luxe products and, yes, the expensive price tag that comes with. Certainly a gift that 'wows,' any Mom would be happy to receive this set of four pint-sized treatments (a cleansing foam, lotion, cream, and serum), all of which are infused with the brand's renowned Miracle Broth elixir. Together they work to give skin a lasting glow.
Revive Skincare Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream
If ever there were a time when hand cream was a more appreciated—or necessary—gift, this is it. This particular option checks the necessary boxes of offering plenty of (non-greasy) hydration, along with SPF and brightening agents to protect the skin. Still, its subtle rose scent and pretty packaging make it totally gift-worthy.
Tangle Teezer Ultimate Vented Hairbrush
A hairbrush may seem like a little bit of a strange gift, but trust us, this is a good one. It has the same fail-proof detangling benefits of the OG Tangle Teezer brush, but with a specially designed vent to speed up blow-dry time and boost volume. And who doesn’t want that?
Lord Jones CBD Acid Mantle Repair Moisturizer
Pick up this newbie for the Mom who is all up on the CBD trend. Not only does the cream contain 250mg of hemp-derived CBD oil, but it’s also specially formulated to soothe stressed skin. And, it comes with a golden spoon to help you apply just the right amount. Enough said.
Chantecaille Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum
This hydrating serum glides onto skin, infusing it with the perfect amount of hydration and plumping fine lines, too. At the same time, it offers protection against skin-damaging blue light, making this choice for the Mom who is always in front of her computer.
Remix by Giselle Wasfie Chill/Day Relaxation Therapy
Give the gift of chill. This aromatherapy spritz—hand-blended by acupuncturist and herbalist Giselle Wasfie—touts a blend of specially chosen ingredients that lift your mood and relieve stress. Plus, it comes with an energy-charged quartz crystal card to further help you maximize the effects, and can be used as either a room spray or worn as a scent.
Town & Anchor Conscious Vegan Facial Set
This small indie brand (owned by a Mom) offers a curated collection of skincare oils and tools, all focusing on high-quality, responsibly-sourced ingredients and sustainable packaging. Here, you get a choice of one face oil, plus a jade roller and charcoal konjac sponge, all housed in a cute cotton tote.
Otherland Mom’s Favorites Bundle
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.
