Whether your mom actually gave birth to you or not, she definitely nourished you and played a huge role in the person you are today. Let’s face it, without them we wouldn’t even be here! As I mentioned in a post a while back, I got lucky, I pretty much grew up with three moms: my real one, my aunt and my grandma. While my real mom is the only one I actually call mom or some other endearment term, the other two played an important role in my life that is worthy of the mom recognition. We all have our own mom stories and situations and we on at least one day a year, we honor them as much as we can for everything they’ve done for us. We’ve put together one of the most comprehensive gift guides that will not only give you some ideas, but actually help you find the perfect gift for the mom in your life.

For the mom who loves a little pampering – and let’s be honest who doesn’t love a little pampering?

Moms do a lot of work not only for their children and loved ones, but also for everyone around them and sometimes stress and getting overworked can leave a lasting effect on their skin. We’ve put together a list of the best products out there aimed at refreshing and revitalizing even the dullest skin.

JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser is a tiny little device that helps moms make the best out of their skin care products. With JeNu, all skin care products get an ultrasonic push, propelling 6X the formula into the skin, giving you mom the power of 6 jars from just one jar.

Let’s face it, we all want to look younger and younger every day and get rid of those pesky little wrinkles or sun damage on our skin. The Perfect Derma Peel is the only medical grade chemical peel that features Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant with powerful skin lightening and anti-aging benefits. It will give any mom a much needed skin refresher!

Frownies offers a variety of skin care products aimed at making anyone feel comfortable they’ve picked the right product for their age and skin type. Instead of standing in front of a beauty store aisle puzzled with all the variety and all the brands out there, Frownies does exactly that for you and gives you the best product. From working to prevent wrinkles and blemishes for moms in their 20s and 30s who want to be proactive about keeping their skin looking young and fresh to facial patches and under eye gels for more mature faces, there’s something for every mom.

We’ve all heard about stem cells being used in medicine to treat certain conditions that were previously beyond the power of modern medicine, but what about using a facial moisturizer that incorporates edelweiss plant stem cells, which have been shown to decrease wrinkles by up to 15% in 22 days. Devera Naturals has combined this breakthrough ingredient with Goji Berry Extract for immediate and long term smoothing, lifting and firming.

Moms don’t always have time to pamper themselves and the ideas of getting a pedicure for a busy mom is more a dream than a reality. But with HoMedics® Foot Salon Pro the at-home pedicure becomes a reality for every busy mom. The four pressure node rollers provide a kneading massage to relax and revitalize tired feet.

And what about her hair? Especially for new moms who are focused more on making sure their new baby is ok and they can finally get a little sleep, the idea of getting a blow dry seems a bit out of this world. For them and all the other moms who are running short on time, Amika had the best solutions and products. The Amika Bombshell Blowout Thermal Brush creates that “just blown-out” look without a blow dryer or hot air in half the time. It features a thermal ceramic barrel, which emits far-infrared heat, preserving moisture for healthy-looking, hydrated hair. The Trifecta is little pack of goodness for every mom finding herself with greasy strands, a dull ‘do, or a volume meltdown. The dry shampoo absorbs dirt and oils with rice starch while a spritz of dry conditioner adds freshness and bounce, nourishing dull hair. The texture spray uses sea buckthorn berry to strengthen hair and boost shine while a unique polymer blend gives strands dramatic volume and texture. Hair disaster averted.

For the mom who loves a clean and put together home

There’s nothing better for a mom than a clean, beautiful house, especially when the cleaning is made remarkably easy with the Dyson V6 Absolute, a cordless lightweight vacuum that is changing the cleaning game and even catching the eye of savvy moms like Kris Jenner and Victoria Beckham!

And what about those fantastic furniture transformers from Yogibo that moms and kids alike love? Yogibo can be a chair, a recliner, a sofa and a bed for the playroom, kids room, living room and dorm-room. Surprisingly super lightweight, it's easy to move from room-to-room yet it "stands tall" in less than 4 square feet when not in use. And it has a removable cover which every mom will appreciate.

For the mom who’s in need of a little stretching and exercise, Best Ball Fitness comes complete with a sample workout program that provides an effective training system applicable to individual and class environments including one of the foremost exercise interventions in the world, yoga. Due to its new, environmentally friendly material, it maintains wing structure to allow the performance of poses more effectively while reducing balance concerns.

What about the mom who has everything?

We’ve all been there trying to figure out what to get for the mom who seems to have everything. The idea of getting yet another scarf or getting her something for the kitchen is not exactly the way we want to honor them. So we found a few ideas for the mom who has everything.

Family Tree DNA can help you find family, break through brick walls and trace lineage through time. It has the most comprehensive ancestry database in the world so you can actually trace down all those distant dots in your family tree. Plus your mom can finally find out where that recessive gene that gave you green eyes came from or some distant relative that still lives in a faraway land.

At Rust Designs, everything seems to be designed as an incredibly thoughtful gift. The gifts are personalized and often turn into family heirlooms that are more valued than anything else. We loved the Written in Stone set that basically transforms the immediate family tree in the most beautiful cluster of boulders engraved on a mug to remind your mom every morning of how amazing her family is.

Casetify is often described as beautiful, but tough, which somehow reminded us of our moms when we were kids. Not only do they offer beautifully designed cases for your smartphone or tablet, but they’re also incredibly durable. You can even design a custom one for your mom with photos of the family so she can have a smile on her face every time she picks up her phone.

For the mom who’s always on the run

Moms are somehow always on the run. Whether we’re talking about young moms rushing off to take their kids to daycare or school or moms whose kids are already grown, they always seems to be headed somewhere and doing something so we found a few devices that make their on the run life a lot easier.

The TYLT Vu Wireless Charging Car Mount is the easiest way to charge a phone on the go. No need to fumble with cords or connectors to stay charged as the charging pad allows charging up to 6” phones, including the Samsung Galaxy 6, Nexus 6, Droid Turbo, and the Lumia 930.

Another important thing for the mom on the go is to stay hydrated and since most moms are looking to eliminate plastic waste and play a role in keeping the planet clean, Water Bobble came up with a bottle that’s not only reusable, but also very resilient and fashionable. Plus the insulated version allows your mom to carry her choice of hot beverages without having it cool down before she has a chance to drink it.

For those moms for whom being on the run usually finds them on a train either traveling for work or just to take a few days and relax, Comfy Commuter created luxurious pillow that provides support for the head, neck and chin. Paired with the lightweight, warm and washable blanket (to replace those annoying airplane blankets), it’s the perfect solution for a more comfortable flight.

For the mom who enjoys the outdoor, gardening or simply dancing in the rain with her children, The Muck Boot Company delivers fashionable 100% waterproof boots with an attention to quality and comfort designed to tackle tough conditions, outdoor sporting, equine, urban commuter needs. Now she will have no excuse for not running through puddles with the kids.

For the mom who loves fashion accessories

The Tissot T-Race is a winner on and off the circuit. Inspired by bike racing, while at the same time keeping that fashion element by combining a white rubber bracelet with a gold bezel, this T-Race will be a complete arm candy for the sporty, but fashionable mom.

For the mom who likes to indulge

Cliff Family Winery Wine and Chocolate

Let’s face it; there are very few things out there better than chocolate or wine. And when you put chocolate and wine together, you’re bound to have a wonderful gift. Who wouldn’t love the combination of a bottle of luxurious and spicy 2012 Gary’s Improv Zinfandel with a tin each of the ever-decadent Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Almonds, Dark Chocolate Chipotle Almonds, and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels? And it all comes together in a striking wood gift box.

If the combination of chocolate and wine is not your idea of a great gift for your mom, you can always break it apart into a lovely wine from Charles Krug Wines and caramels from McCrea’s.
