Best Mother's Day beauty and skin care gifts

Do you know someone who shoves their makeup into an old makeup bag, and is constantly digging through it to find what they need daily? They need this gorgeous glam organizer from Umbra. It's sleek, the drawers open seamlessly and it elevates the look of any vanity or bathroom counter.

This luxurious whipped shampoo scrub is made with pink Himalayan sea salt, moringa oil and unfiltered rose hip oil. With this detoxifying scalp scrub, your mom can experience the spa treatment from home.

Honestly, Sol De Janeiro products are worth all the hype they've been getting recently. The company first went viral for its Bum Bum Cream (pronounced boom-boom), and they haven't gone wrong with a product release since. The latest body cream is Delicia Drench — and it's a body butter that immediately soaks into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smelling amazing.

Give her the gift of self-care with this set of core products from selfmade. She'll get a scrub, a serum, a moisturizer and a sensual body oil that will improve both body and mind.

This moisturizing mud mask is perfect for all skin types. Not only is it dermatologist-approved clean beauty, but it helps fight free radical damage, rids pores of dirt with Kaolin clay, includes hyaluronic acid for added moisture and soothes irritated skin with aloe and chamomile extracts.

Created by women for women, this serum boost for mature skin is perfect for anyone who needs a little beauty boost.  And for a little bonus, the Gua Sha is made with rose quartz, a crystal known for unconditional love and its ability to attract love.

She's been curious about LED light therapy for a while, so now's the perfect time to get a great deal on this coveted mask from Glow Therapy. With a red light for boosting collagen and a blue light to fight acne, this will give her a (well-deserved) reason to relax at night.

Best tech gifts

No one likes blaring static or annoying phone sounds waking them out of a sound sleep.

The RENPHO Eye Massager is great for anyone who gets stressed or has frequent migraines. Our tester loved the Bluetooth feature that enabled her to listen to her own music. She recommended using the remote since the buttons on the actual product are a little touch-sensitive. The heat and vibration was a win, and our tester, a new mom, said it was a "game changer" that's well worth the money.  This model also goes on sale often.

Give the gift of being able to listen to a podcast in peace, enjoy a workout with a clear connection, and take calls without skipping a beat with these Beats noise-cancelling earbuds. The color selections are great, but what we really love about the Beats is their ability to stay in place and not constantly fall out of your ears like so many other pods do.

Infrared therapy can be very costly, ranging anywhere from $25 to $150 a session. If she's interested in infrared therapy, it may seem like a costly choice to have an at-home system, but it's truly cost-effective over time.  This one folds for easy storage and Hydragun is a trusted brand for accessible recovery products.
