This is ABC’s Shark Tank wearable blanket for those moms that want to chill at home with a glass of wine and chat with friends or watch a movie with the family.
This subscription box is perfect for those who enjoy coffee and books. She will receive a bag of ground or whole bean coffee plus two new hardcover books of her chosen genre. She can change her coffee preferences and book genre at any time during the subscription.
The genres include acclaimed fiction, non-fiction, thriller, horror, fantasy, mystery, romance, and science fiction.
Keep her drink perfectly hot for up to 1.5 hours, or all day if it sits on the charging coaster. She can choose her preferred temperature, between 120ºF and 145ºF (or 48ºC and 62ºC).
This smart mug can be controlled with or without the app, as it will remember her last settings. Out of the box, the Ember Mug is set to 135°F (57ºC). I will turn off automatically when the mug is empty or after 2 hours of inactivity. Ember wakes up when it senses movement or liquid.
A thoughtful and fun gift, this kit will help her discover her roots and learn about her heritage. This DNA kit can be done from home and mailed straight to the lab, no contact necessary. We tried this kit and loved how detailed the genetic and health reports were, it was also fun to explore our roots and share with our family and friends. We even discovered DNA relatives across the world!
This kit is a great opportunity to open up conversations with your mom about your heritage and family history.
Does she love cocktails? She will enjoy making her own premium hand-crafted cocktails. Simply by mixing her favorite vodka, gin, whisky, or champagne and add the ingredients from this kit to prepare three perfectly tasting cocktails.
With the Kindle Paperwhite, she can have instant access to new book releases and bestsellers. It’s thin, light, and now waterproof to read at the beach, by the pool, or in the bath. The built-in adjustable light lets her read indoors and outdoors, day and night.
And the newest version has twice the storage with 8 GB, with Audible access, and allows her to pair with headphones or Bluetooth speakers. A single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours.
This annual membership gives her access to thousands of video classes from the best in each field, including Martha Stewart, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Anna Wintour, Aaron Sorkin, James Cameron, and Serena Williams, so they can learn just about anything, at their own pace, and from the comfort of their own home. She’ll love setting a new goal for the new year and learning with MasterClass.
Winc is one of the best wine subscription boxes, according to sommeliers and hundreds of monthly oenophiles (commonly known as wine lovers). Each month, she’ll enjoy four hand-picked selections of bottles that are tailored to her taste preferences. The prices are reasonable, with a great selection of wine, and the whole process takes about 10 minutes.
Does she have everything? Consider giving her an experience she’ll never forget. It’s never too late to travel, see the world, and experience how other people live. You can choose from hundreds of experiences in more than 40 countries in Europe.
A great last-minute Christmas gift for mom — she can use it for journaling, recipes, drawing, keeping her goals, brainstorming, the list goes on. The option for this journal doesn’t come with custom embossing if you need it last minute. Made by a woman-owned small business in Calgary.
A great gift if you’re short on time. Choose from a ton of magazine subscription offers, including National Geographic, Reader’s Digest, Martha Stewart Living, Sports Illustrated, Real Simple, Fortune Magazine, and more. Some subscriptions start at just $5 for a year.
One of winter’s favorite flavors — apple pie a la mode, but in a bottle (and 34 proof). Add a festive flavor to her drinks with the tastes of freshly baked apple pie and rich vanilla ice cream. Hints of cinnamon and spices lead to a creamy vanilla finish. It’s lovely over ice or in her favorite hot beverage. Is she not a Bailey’s fan? Don’t worry, Reserve Bar has a huge selection of wines and spirits to browse — and the best part is they’ll deliver it straight to your (or her) door.
Give her access to thousands of audiobooks, podcasts, and original stories that she can access from any device.
