Want to take wine nights to the next level? Introduce the art of tarot! This gift set from cult-favorite artist Kim Krans comes with a guidebook so any amateur psychic can deal hands and interpret their meanings pretty much right away.

2. Dior Diorshow Lash-Extension Effect Volume Mascara, $30, Nordstrom


ls available at Sephora.

A splurge-worthy beauty product makes for a great gift for any of your girlfriends. We love Dior's Diorshow mascara because it's dramatic, soft-to-the-touch, luxurious and washes off easily with water at the end of the day.

3. OYOY Reusable Metal Straws (6 Pieces), $9, Amazon


Great for the eco-loving friend who's always entertaining, these rainbow-hued aluminum straws will help her do her part for the environment (replacing wasteful paper party straws) and look great at cocktail parties!

4. Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer, $15, Amazon

LoudLabs News

Speaking of drinking and cocktails, this Amazon best-seller has over 2,000 positive reviews and is able to aerate your wine instantly upon the pour. Any wine-lover (or Kathie Lee and Hoda fan) will find it amazing!

5. Personalized Morse Code Cuff, $32, BaubleBar


We love BaubleBar's large selection of monogrammed and personalized jewelry. We also love its accessible prices. Treat a favorite girlfriend to this cuff with a Morse code initial for her name.


1. illy Y3.2 Iperespresso Espresso & Coffee Machine, $100, Amazon

Susan Monroe

Also available at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond.

If we know one thing about moms, it's that they often turn to caffeine to start the day. This compact little machine from illy makes both espresso and coffee so mom can have her java any way she likes every morning.

If that one doesn't fit the bill, though, one of our food editors swears by a classic Nespresso machine.

2. URPOWER Essential Oil Diffuser and Humidifier, $16, Amazon


Similar one available at Walmart for $18.

Aiming to help with relaxation, diffusers are a clever and thoughtful gift for any mom who could use a few more peaceful moments to herself each day (or just likes to have a nice-smelling home). This one has more than 28,000 reviews on Amazon, misting and light features and a timer, so it will automatically shut down once she drifts off.

3. Brooklinen Core Sheet Set, $129, Brooklinen


Also available at Amazon for $149.

Sometimes the best gifts aren’t the most glamorous. Brooklinen has built a stellar reputation (through thousands of five-star reviews) for their soft, breathable and cool-to-the-touch linens. Upgrade Mom’s sleep situation with a set of subtly patterned sheets.

4. Mellani Bed Sheet Set (Queen), $30, Amazon


If you're looking for a more budget-friendly alternative, check out the very popular Mellani bed sheets on Amazon. We love the $30 sheet set!

5. Everlane Cashmere Turtleneck, $120, Everlane

Instagram User @WE_LEO1

What could feel better than wrapping your neck in cashmere? Mom will swoon over the soft fabric and and unfussy design of this Everlane turtleneck, and she’ll think of you every time she puts it on.


1. Missoma Mini Dagger Hoop Earrings, $105, Nordstrom


Also available at Missoma.

Mini hoop earrings are having a moment right now, but can feel a bit simple as a gift. We love these delicate Missoma hoops because they feature a pretty hanging element that adds a pop of color and makes them feel special.

2. "The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts" by Gary Chapman, $17, Amazon


Also available at Barnes & Noble and Walmart for $19.

If you’re looking to understand your partner better — learning how each of you shows and receives love — try a copy of this classic book on romantic relationships that’s been on the best-seller list for years.

3. Lafco Chamomile Lavender Candle, $65, Nordstrom


If you two sleep in the same room, this gift is really a win-win. One of the company's best-selling scents, the candle smells subtly of both calming chamomile and lavender, making it great to wind down with after a long day.

4. Away x Tile Luggage Tag, $30, Away

If you have a trip coming up, or you are going to surprise her with one, this luggage tracker makes a great gift! Plus, you can have the sleek leather luggage tag embossed with her monogram.

5. Splendid Stripe PJ Set, $78, Shopbop


Also available at Bloomingdale's.

A pajama set that’s cute, cozy and just a little bit sexy, this Splendid set has it all. It makes the perfect gift for women who love nothing more than sleeping in or lazing around in her “Sunday best” all day long.

For something a little more affordable, we love this pj set from Amazon's comfort line Mae. The heather grey color has lemon piping and is only $38.
