Best Mother’s Day gifts 2019: Show mom some love
Mother figures are the backbone of the world. Yours may be your biological mother, or maybe she's your mother-in-law, your best friend's mom, or simply someone whose motherly instinct has helped you through hard times.
Skip the generic mugs and show your appreciation with a gift picked just for her: Whether it's something to make a part of her life easier, something she's mentioned wanting in passing, or simply something to make her feel like a damn queen, you can't put a price on everything she's done for you, but heartfelt gifts certainly help.
After all, they say "No matter how hard you try, you always end up like your mother." But is that even a bad thing?
Here are the best gift ideas for Mother's Day:
Long-distance touch lamps
Moms miss you when you're gone for a few seconds, let alone weeks or months. If she hates texting, send her an "I miss you" with the light of these touch lamps. Just set them up via WiFi, give one a tap, and the other will glow the same radiant color. To add more loved ones to the group, just grab another lamp and assign everyone a color.
A shoe compartment tote bag
Traveling for work or heading to the gym straight from the office likely has her lugging around an extra pair of shoes every day. Instead of wrapping them in a plastic bag, this ultra-stylish tote bag has plenty of room for multiple changes of clothes and has a separate shoe compartment in the bottom. It's water-resistant, has a padded laptop sleeve, and has a special strap for sitting on top of a suitcase.
Family is everything and there's no way your mom's not a little curious about her own background. Order your mom an AncestryDNA® kit and trace your family roots together. Receive free shipping when you use the code FREESHIPDNA.
