If she loves her fair share of coffee, the best Mother’s Day gift would be to get her this beautiful retro-styled Smeg coffee-maker. Not only will this add to the aesthetics of her kitchen, but also make for a mean cuppa!

Customer Review:
“Not enough has been said about how pretty this is. When I took it out of the box and set it on the counter i thought the sun should slowly rise behind it and the angel chorus burst out. If R2D2 had a girlfriend and that girlfriend dressed to go to the oscar awards ceremony she would look like this.
I researched many coffee makers and read a lot of reviews. This seemed to have everything I was looking for plus it was a pretty color.”

“I have this book on my coffee table and am always opening it up for “ plantspiration”.

This book celebrates the natural, organic, curated plant collections that I absolutely love to see. Bravo!”

“Loved the pure charcoal gray color without green or blue undertones and the texture is perfect! Very soft, but they are thin though. I didn’t buy for warmth or for use as blankets but to cover my white ektorp foot stools as my basenjis play king of the mountain on them. They work for that purpose but as they’re thin, they get kicked up and disarranged alot. Price was so right though, and the color/texture was so perfect…”

“I received the “peace + tranquility” candle as a gift for Christmas. I loved the smell so I wanted to try others. “Joy + laughter” smells amazing. I will say “peace + tranquility” has a more clean/refreshing smell, while “joy + laughter” is more sweet- almost like a perfume. I plan to try more scents in the future because I love these so much! Definitely would recommend. PS. I am sensitive to strong scents (sometimes get headaches from them) and these do not bother me.”

11. Natural Bath Salts

Bath salts for mother's day gift


Taking a nice long bath after a tiring day sounds so heavenly and relaxing. How about you make it happen for your loving mother-in-law this mother’s day and gift her a set of these bath salts to elevate her relaxation experience?

Customer Review:
“I absolutely love this brand. Comparable to LUSH products but I prefer this one over bubble bars from LUSH. It has little chip-like soap things that help create the bubbles. The blue package has a rubber ducky surprise inside the bag which makes it aesthetically pleasing for an adult wanting to enjoy a relaxing bath while also catering to children as a bath toy. The other bag has a mini floating ball with a face on it and its adorable. Creates decent amount of bubbles but you can adjust based on how much of the bath salts you put in. The scent is relaxing, subtle, and not overpowering. I love this brand’s products and would not write a good review if I didn’t like it. I am also picky on soap/bath/beauty products so keep that in mind when I say that I highly recommend this.”

The size small was a perfect fit with room to spare. In addition to the two zippered exterior pockets, it has two generously sized pockets inside. I feel like I can store enough stuff to run away from home. The high collar gives this a very structured look.

Customer Review:
“Finally, I have a REAL blender! I purchased two blenders on Amazon over the past few years. I had an Oster which lasted me many years, and I recently (like in the past week) ordered a Comfee which claimed to be able to crush ice and do smoothies. It had a great price and nice design, but it could not do the job. Returned it. This Ninja Pro performed right out of the box and crushed 10 ice cubes plus frozen fruit into powder in less than 10 seconds. I should have gotten this one first.”
