A Nice Hairbrush

I’m not talking about some cheap Conair de-shedding tool, here. The matriarch of the household deserves a genuine Mason Pearson hairbrush derived from the finest boar bristle available. Remember that she washed, combed, and groomed your hair before you could even spell your own name.
Anker Wireless Headphones (Purchase this item, from $25.99)
It is currently 2018, and we no longer have the need for wired headphones. Don’t leave your mother behind on the times; give her the gift of wireless bliss.
Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader (Purchase this item, from $119.99)
If your mother is anything like mine, then she enjoys reading Pride and Prejudice every other week in order to keep the dream of Mr. Darcy alive. Or, perhaps, your mother enjoys the more serious side of literature. Whatever her tastes may be, if she enjoys reading why not befit her with a Kindle? Not only is it convenient, but you’ll save her back from lugging heavy books around.

Go old school and get her the Puffin in Bloom collection, featuring Anne of Green Gables, Heidi, and others. Even if she never gets around to reading them, the books will still look quite scholarly on the shelf.
A Massage Cushion

A DNA Test Kit

Ever since I can remember, my mother has touted her Greek heritage with the pride of Alexander the Great. So when my siblings and I gifted her an ancestry test and discovered that she is actually German — and not the Delphic goddess she claimed to be — we had a field day involving a lot of laughter and questions. I highly recommend this one.
Something for Grandma
Grandma Coffee Mug (Purchase this item, from $15.95)
Mother’s Day is not only about your mother. After all, where would she be without her mother? Luckily, grandmothers are usually easily pleased, and will most likely be satisfied with a cute mug or little trinket.
