Made with a soft jersey outer shell that’s been stuffed with a weighted polyester filling, each blanket is hand-knitted in a chunky, breathable open weave that’s buttery soft.

Moms who are looking for deeper sleep, reduced symptoms of fibromyalgia, treatment for sensory overload, or the benefits of a “hug-like sensation that translates into deep touch pressure (DTP) therapy” are going to love it.

The Brooklyn Bedding Chunky Knit Weighted Blanket is available in cream or gray in 10-pound ($199) or 15-pound weights ($219); they are on sale right now for 25% off with the code refresh25, making them $149.30 and $164.30 respectively.

Pura x The Met Smart Diffuser and Scents

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Pura has collaborated with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to introduce six fragrances that were developed to enable customers to “experience art across time and cultures through fragrances inspired by extraordinary pieces at The Met.”

The attractive Pura smart fragrance diffuser plugs into an outlet, and it uses WiFi and Bluetooth technology to connect to a smartphone app that will allow Mom to adjust fragrance intensity, set schedules and timers, switch between two scents, and more.

The fragrances contain no harsh chemicals; they are safe and clean, contain no parabens or phthalates, and they are cruelty-free.

Pura x The Met fragrances sell on their own for $17.59, and the sets that include the Pura diffuser sell for $89. You can get 15% off your order if you sign up for updates from Pura.

Cascade Designs Honcho Poncho

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom attends a lot of outdoor sporting events, likes to camp, or just gets chilled easily, the $134.95 Honcho Poncho would be the perfect gift.

The Honcho Poncho is filled with compressible eraLoft, which uses hollow fibers to reduce weight without sacrificing warmth; they are water-resistant and versatile, and they offer a barrier against wind and rain while remaining breathable.

The Honcho Ponch can be compressed into a camp-sized pillow for easy portability, but when it’s needed, it can either be used unfolded as a blanket, or it can be slipped over Mom’s head, snapped on the sides (or left open), and worn like a poncho.

A kangaroo pocket will keep her hands warm, and there is a zippered top pocket that can hold her essentials without the need for a bag.

The Honcho Poncho is available in a variety of colors and styles, including Black Forest Print, Wheat, Blue Woven Print, Mars Red, and my favorite, the Topo Wave.

Smartish

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom has a new iPhone, you can help her accessorize it in style with Smartish. Based in Austin, Texas, Smartish has been designing and manufacturing phone cases for over a decade; the brand’s specialty is inexpensive products that aren’t cheap and that are built to last.

Some of our favorites include the $19.99 Smartish Gripmunk with MagSafe, which is available in six different colors and patterns.

As you may have inferred from its name, the Gripmunk case has texturized sides, so it’s easier to hold onto. It also features protective corners, camera and display protection, and it’s compatible with MagSafe chargers and accessories.

For $14.99, you can get Mom a set of two Smartish Tuff Sheet glass screen protectors that are scratch-resistant and easy to install.

If Mom likes to travel light, the Side Hustle is a MagSafe-compatible wallet that can hold three cards and some cash securely attached to her newer iPhone, so she can leave her wallet at home.

The Smartish Side Hustle is available in five different colors and patterns for $24.99; they even have some really cool retro designs, like the $34.99 Mixtape and Cassette 2.

Strong magnets keep the Side Hustle securely attached to her iPhone and MagSafe-compatible case, and the design makes her cards easy to access while also keeping them secure.

You can really help Mom go hands-free with the Case Clinger, which includes an insert that makes any case lanyard compatible and instantly stylish with one of four different neck lanyard styles (prices range from $14.99 to $29.99), a wristlet ($9.99), and extra inserts ($4.99 each) if she likes to swap cases regularly.

Arcade Carto Stretch Belt

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Active moms deserve a belt that cinches their waist without making them feel like they are getting stabbed, and that’s where the $34.95 Arcade Carto Stretch Belt comes in. The Carto is available in three color combinations, Charcoal Saddle, Navy Tumbleweed, and Ivy Green Sand.

The Carto is 1.5″ wide, and it features a non-metal, high-density plastic contoured buckle that won’t dig in; a non-metal buckle means she won’t have to remove her belt when going through TSA on her way to the next adventure.

Made with 85% post-consumer recycled REPREVE polyester, the Carto belt will give her freedom as it stretches and moves with her body while keeping her shorts or pants secure without pinching.

Even better, Carto doesn’t use imprecise holes for sizing; instead, the micro-adjustable buckle will dial in her perfect fit.

The $34.95 Arcade Carto belt fits waist sizes up to 40″.

PLANTMADE Hair Products

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

What hair-related issue is Mom struggling with? Is it hair loss, thinning, dry/brittle hair, damaged or dead ends? Whatever it may be, PLATMADE has a solution!

PLANTMADE’s $39 Inches Hair & Beard Oil is for daily use; it’s an oil scalp treatment that helps stimulate hair regrowth while repairing damaged strands.

The $29 Drizzle Hydrating Mist will give Mom a boost of moisture for better hair growth using a blend of botanical oils. It will help her fight the hair loss and thinning that comes as we age while combating dry and brittle strands and detangling longer hair with just a few sprays.

Throw in one of PLANTMADEs Scalp and Beard Massagers so she can get rid of dead skin cells, reduce dandruff, and any excess build-up, dirt, and toxins. The soft silicone bristles exfoliate while providing her gentle relief from itchiness as it increases blood flow to spark hair at the follicles.

SmartBidet SB-2600

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Bidets have long been a bathroom staple in Europe and Asia, and they started to gain more ground in the U.S. when COVID hit, and toilet paper was in short supply.

If the pandemic taught us anything, it was that creature comforts can not be underestimated, and now you can affordably upgrade mom’s bathroom and her hygiene routine with a $399 SmartBidet SB-2600.

The SmartBidet SB-2600 replaces Mom’s current toilet seat and lid, and it simply plugs into a wall outlet; it is customizable, eco-friendly, and easy to use.

Why would Mom appreciate a bidet?

Well, for starters, bidets use fresh water to clean the genitals and anal area, which can be much more effective than using toilet paper alone. Using a bidet will leave Mom feeling cleaner and fresher while reducing the risk of infections or irritation.

Bidets are very beneficial for people with certain health conditions, such as hemorrhoids or anal fissures, as they can help alleviate symptoms while preventing further irritation.

Bidets can also significantly reduce the amount of toilet paper Mom uses, which can save her money and is ultimately much better for the environment.

The SmartBidet SB-2600 does it all — it cleanses in either “posterior,” “feminine,” or “turbo wash” modes, and it has on-demand hot water and temperature-controlled washing and heat drying. There’s even a seat heater, so when it’s chilly, she’ll doubly appreciate it!

PediPocket Blanket

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If mom’s feet are always cold, she’ll love snuggling in bed or on the couch with the $69.99 PediPocket Blanket.

Available in many colors and patterns, including the gorgeous Chevron Chic shown above, the PediPocket Blanket is extra long at 50” x 70”, and it has a 20” deep foot pocket built right in, so she won’t have to sacrifice blanket length to tuck the blanket under her feet.

Mom will thank you for this sweet gift!

Lifevine Wines

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Without sacrificing taste or alcohol levels. Lifevine Wines offers a line of certified pesticide-free, organic and pure wines that contain no sugar in a 5-ounce serving.

While the FDA  doesn’t require wines to disclose nutritional information, Lifevine includes it all on the label, even calorie counts!

But the most important thing is that the wine is delicious,  and that is something that I can personally confirm. If Mom likes reds, they have a Pinot Noir and a Cabernet Sauvignon that she is sure to enjoy; I can also confirm that their Chardonnay is also extra tasty.

Lifevine Wines are priced at $21.99 each, and there’s a $65 Lifevine Spring Bundle available, which includes a bottle each of their Cab Sav, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and the brand new Rosé.

This is a gift that you’ll want Mom to share with you!

Hatch Restore 2

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

You can give Mom the gift of better sleep with the $199.99 Hatch Restore 2, which can help her carve out little moments for rest so that she can create simple, healthy sleep rituals that she’ll look forward to.

Everything is inspired by nature, backed by science, and designed to guide her sleep from sunset to sunrise. The Hatch Restore 2 has a simple, soothing design that’s available in three colors, Latte, Putty, and Slate, so it will look right at home on her bedside table.

When it is time for bed, Restore will transform her bedroom into a cozy space to help her unwind. She’ll sleep deeply with science-backed sounds that block out unwanted noises, including snores and sirens.

In the morning, she’ll walk to her own gradual sunrise and natural birdsong rather than a jarring alarm.

After her sunrise alarm gently wakes her, Mom can pause for a moment of inspiration before she seizes the day with Morning Moment, which offers short pieces of content from affirmations to gentle movement.

The Restore 2 has an integrated clock, big, tactile buttons, and an alarm slide, which means no more fumbling with her phone to check the time or silence her phone’s alarm while simultaneously seeing all of those waiting news notifications.

Get ready for Mom to thank you for some of the best sleep she’s ever enjoyed!

Corico Olive Boat & Pit Port

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Whether she’s entertaining or enjoying them on her own, if mom loves olives but is never sure where to place the pits, the $30 Corico Olive Boat & Pit Port is the perfect gift.

Made of two pieces of porcelain, the 7″ wide Olive Boat & Pit Port serves a nice amount of olives while hiding the unsightly pits inside its port.

The Pit Port rest in the middle of the serving dish; the opening fits discarded pits of all sizes, keeping them out of site. The Pit Port doesn’t have a bottom, so when it’s time to clean up or refill the olives, Mom can just lift the port off the plate, sweep away the olive pits, reload the olives, and carry on.

This is such a simple, elegant solution for home use or when guests are over; I wish restaurants that served olives would use these, too! Nobody wants to look at those gross, chewed-on pits!

BougeRV CRPRO30 12V Portable Car Fridge

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

The BougeRV CRPRO 30 12V Portable Car Fridge is one of those things that Mom would probably never think to buy for herself, but that’s what Mother’s Day is for!

The BougeRV CRPRO30 is a quite convenient ice-free solution for moms who need a way to keep items cold while traveling, camping, or in locations without power, as it can be charged via AC, DC, the optional 220Wh Power Station, and even optional solar.

If mom would appreciate a portable fridge that keeps cold items cold and frozen items frozen, this is one of the most versatile systems that I’ve seen; it’s even great to use as a small fridge at home when she isn’t traveling!

The BougeRV CRPRO 30 12V Portable Car Fridge starts at $379.99.

Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom has been complaining about how slow and old her laptop is, you can give her a much better experience with the $1,399.99 Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1.

This convertible design has a 14″ 4K OLED multitouch screen with a 16:10 Aspect Ratio, and it can be used as a regular laptop, but when Mom wants to watch a movie on it or give a presentation, she can put it in tent mode (as shown in the photo above) and not have to stare at the laptop’s keyboard.

Watching her favorite shows on it will be a pleasure because it has sound powered by four Bowers & Wilkins speakers and Dolby Atmos on the 360° rotating soundbar.

If she wants to take notes or read and mark up documents, she can put the Lenovo Yoga 9i in tablet mode and pull out the integrated pen. Lenovo Transition automatically switches specific applications to full screen when changing from PC to tablet, tent, or stand position.

The Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1 has an Intel Evo design that a 13th Gen Intel Core i7-1360P processor with Intel Iris Xe Graphics powers.

With 16GB RAM, Mom will be able to smoothly manage photo- and video-editing applications, or she can keep multiple programs and browser tabs open all at once. A 512GB SSD will give her faster start-up times and data access, no noise, reduced heat production, and less power draw on the battery.

The Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1 weighs just 3.08 pounds, and it is only 0.6″ thick, so it will be easy to pop into her bag when she is out and about and needs to bring her laptop.

It just so happens that we have one to give away, so be sure to enter our giveaway at the end of this gift guide!

Flavors include Lavender for soothing and calming and Rose for an uplifting, energizing bath.

Homesick Candles

Cobra 75 All Road Wireless CB Radio

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Is mom on the road a lot? If so, she’ll appreciate the $199.95 Cobra 75 All Road Wireless CB Radio with Digital Noise Cancellation. I can hear you saying, “it’s 2023, and my mom isn’t the type to say, “Breaker 1-9″ and chat with nearby truckers!”

But that’s not the only reason she might want (or need) a CB.

For some, using a CB radio is a fun hobby or a way to connect with other enthusiasts, but CBs can be useful in emergency situations when cellular networks are down or overloaded.

In a natural disaster, they operate without cellular service or the internet, which can mean the difference between getting help or not.

On the road, Mom can use a CB to communicate with other drivers to get information about road conditions, traffic, and weather.

The Cobra 75 All Road Wireless CB Radio with Digital Noise Cancellation has an AM/FM feature, which is a completely new function that gives better voice and signal clarity.

The sub-compact design allows it to fit in any vehicle, too!

Sleep Number True Temp Weighted Eye Mask

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

You might have noticed a theme of “how can we help mom relax?” running through our 2023 Mother’s Day Gift Guide, and the $39.99 True Temp Weighted Sleep Mask fits right in.

When Mom is ready to sleep, she can put the glass bead-filled mask on to get the calming effects of gentle pressure stimulation. A removable True Temp temperature balancing cover forms to the contours of her face to help reduce stress and help her relax.

The machine-washable True Temp Weighted Sleep Mask has a light-blocking design, and the removable cover features 37.5 technology that attracts and removes moisture to keep her comfortable, and the elastic band provides a secure fit.

Whether she is using it at home or while traveling, the True Temp Weighted Sleep Mask will help her get her best rest.

Üllo Wine Purifier and Aerator

All wine contains sulfites, which are artificial preservatives added during production, but the $79.99 Üllo Wine Purifier and Aerator’s upgraded design instantly removes those harmful sulfites from Mom’s wine the moment their job as preservatives is over (AKA, when Mom opens the bottle); it pulls out the wines natural flavors and alleviates negative effects like bitter taste and wine headaches.

As the wine is poured through the Üllo Wine Purifier and Aerator, a proprietary polymer technology filters away free sulfites and reduces histamines while allowing other compounds in wine to flow through unaffected.

The Üllo Wine Purifier and Aerator rests gently on any wine glass, with its lid doubling as a base to capture any stray drips.

Mom can set the fully adjustable aeration according to her preference and the wine’s characteristics — off for delicate whites, medium for light red, and full air for rich reds — and the Üllo Wine Purifier and Aerator has a dishwasher-safe, easy-to-use design.

I’ve given this a try; not only does the aerator work as promised but there are also no histamine headaches the next morning from residual sulfites. It really works!

The Üllo Wine Purifier and Aerator comes with a travel bag and three full-bottle sulfite filters; additional filters for glasses or full bottles of wine can be purchased here.

TORRAS Coolify 2S Wearable Air Conditioner

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

The weather is only getting hotter, and if mom is sensitive to the heat to the point where she doesn’t want to go for her usual walks or work in the garden, the $229 TORRAS Coolify 2S Wearable Air Conditioner will help.

Available in Black or White, when Mom wears it around her neck, the TORRAS Coolify 2S will cool to 30ºF in one second, cooling her face and neck so she can enjoy her usual outdoor activities without feeling faint.

Smart app controls offer three modes, fan, cooling, and even heat, making the TORRAS Coolify 2S useful year-round.

The battery charges in just 2.5 hours, and it has a runtime of up to 28 hours, so Mom won’t have to worry about constantly recharging one more thing.

The TORRAS Coolify 2S Wearable Air Conditioner is also available from Amazon.

BLITHE Products

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Give Mom an at-home spa day with BLITHE Products like the two we’ll mention here, but there are quite a few excellent options to choose from.

BLITHE’s $24 Bubbling Splash Mask will provide Mom with a deep, soothing cleanse while minimizing pores; it’s made from a blend of clay from Canada and glacial water from Alaska to work without drying her skin, leaving her with a healthy and fresh complexion.

The Splash Mask also helps with blemish treatment while calming, firming, smoothing, and helping with oil control. Mom can use it as a mud mask, but it will also work as a foam cleanser when she adds water.

A drain worked into the back of the pot ensures that Mom never adds too much water to the reservoir.

I’ve got a pink princess philodendron planted in a large, green, 7″ by 7″ twisted square Posie Pot, and I especially like that when I add water, it’s through the tube on the side of the pot versus on the soil, which helps control gnat infestations that can show up on wet indoor soil in the warmer months.

Posie Pots range in price from $50 to $180, depending on the size.

EAROS High-Fidelity Hearing Protection

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

It’s festival season, and if mom loves her music, she’ll appreciate the $40 EAROS high-fidelity hearing protection.

EAROS is a noise-filtering device that comes in two styles, the EAROS One and the EAROS Sport; they are designed to fit comfortably for long periods while providing 17dB to 20dB of noise reduction (depending upon the model) while allowing clear, resonant sound quality across frequencies.

They’re not just for concerts, though; Mom can wear them at work to filter out background noise, to sporting events, or even to help her sleep when the TV is playing in the background.

Each package includes one pair of EAROS acoustic filters, a carrying pouch for travel, one pair of small eartips, one pair of large eartips, and one pair of foam eartips, as well as an instruction manual.

You can help Mom protect her hearing without giving up the things she enjoys doing!

Insta360 Flow

If mom has ever complained about not having a way to take the perfect selfie or video, the Insta360 Flow, the world’s most advanced AI-tracking smartphone with 3-axis gimbal stabilization, a built-in tripod, and a built-in selfie stick, will help get her sorted.

In fact, Flow is the first smartphone stabilizer capable of shooting 360º photos!

The Flow Flow is small enough to carry in a medium-sized bag, and it has one-step rapid deployment, so it will unfold in just one motion. Mom just needs to attach it to her phone with the magnetic phone clamp, unfold the gimbal, and she’ll be ready to start shooting.

If Mom has an iPhone, the Insta360 app will detect Flow when it’s attached and send a notification for her to open the Insta360 app to connect.

When Mom isn’t sure how to compose a shot, she can give a voice command, and Shot Genie will recommend shooting techniques according to the scene. There are over 80 templates available to follow, from filming the beach to a bustling city scene.

If mom is a basketball fan, she’ll appreciate Hoop Mode. She can set Flow to record a game, and the AI will track the basketball and hoop to recognize when a basket is made, saving the highlights as individual clips for easy editing into a reel later.

Other shooting modes include Panorama, TimeShift, Motion Timelapse, and Dolly Zoom.

The Flow’s SmartWheel on the side has a minimalist design that will give her quick, easy access to many useful functions, including shooting controls, video replay, and more. A swipe of the wheel toggles between four main modes: Auto, Follow, Pan Follow, and FPV.

Auto tracking enables Mom’s smartphone to follow her or her desired subject with unmatched precision, while 3-axis stabilization delivers ultra-smooth shots.

The Insta360 Flow also has a built-in selfie stick, a built-in tripod, and a 2900mAh battery that provides up to 12 hours of use and can even recharge her smartphone!

The $159 Standalone Kit includes the Insta360 Flow, a protective pouch, a magnetic phone clamp, a grip Cover, and a Type-C to A charging cable.

The $192.98 Pro Tripod Kit includes everything necessary for outdoor conditions, including the Insta360 Flow, an all-purpose Tripod, a protective pouch, the magnetic phone clamp, a grip cover, and a Type-C to A charging cable.

If mom needs a few more options, the $209 Creator Kit includes the Insta360 Flow, a Spotlight, the Magnetic Phone Clamp, a Grip Cover, a carry bag, a Type-C to A charging cable, a Type-C to C cable, and a Type-C to Lightning phone cable.

The Insta360 Flow comes in Stone Gray or Summit White. This is such a great idea for moms who want to do it all with their smartphone cameras!

reMarkable 2

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom loves technology but prefers taking handwritten notes because it helps her focus and retain the information better, the reMarkable 2 is the perfect gift.

With it, Mom will enjoy paper-like writing and reading on a ridiculously thin aluminum tablet that is fast, smart, and provides up to two weeks of battery life.

Handwritten notes can be converted into text, and they can also be integrated into Google Drive, Dropbox, and Microsoft OneDrive, where they can later be accessed from their computer or smartphone.

Mom can import PDF files and write directly on them, and she can also import Microsoft Office files and articles from the web as PDF files.

Moms who like to keep a journal will appreciate that there are no email or social media distractions when they’re writing on the reMarkable 2; it’s just them, the tablet, and their thoughts.

This is one of the many reasons that I love (and recommend!) this tablet so heartily — it has turned me into a regular journaler!

If Mom is using the reMarkable 2 at work, there’s no need to type up notes as they can be easily converted to text. With the reMarkable 2, she can write in cursive or block letters in 33 languages!

And yes, she’ll be able to use reMarkable as an eBook reader because .epub and .pdf books can be imported to the tablet.

The reMarkable 2 tablet sells for $299. To get the full writing experience, she’ll need one of the Markers ($79 to $129); reMarkable also offers two styles of Folios in a gray polymer weave or premium leather in brown or black, ranging from $79 to $169.

If mom wants to be able to type on her reMarkable 2, there’s even a new $199 Type Folio that adds the convenience of a slim, tactile keyboard with the protection of a stylish cover.

ReMarkable updates the tablet’s software quite regularly, and they are always adding new features; the latest update adds bold and italic text formatting and a button that quickly resets your view when you’re zoomed in.

Mom is going to love this!

Love Your Melon Hats

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Love Your Melon is known for quality knits, signature pom and patch styles, and its support of the fight against pediatric cancer. Mom will enjoy wearing their newest warm weather staple, The Hero Cap.

Designed for the perfect fit, the hat features cooling and moisture-wicking properties built into its signature FitKnit tech that will let mom cool her head, warm her heart, and join the fight.

For cooler weather, keep Love Your Melon in mind because they have a huge selection of headbands and beanies in every color, and they even offer collegiate beanies, like my (obvious) favorite, the Texas A&M Beanie.

There’s something for everyone at Love Your Melon, and the quality of their products is excellent!

Thyme & Sage Towel Kit

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom makes a clucking noise when she pulls out one of her worn dish towels, it’s time to upgrade them by getting her a $34 Thyme & Sage Towel Kit!

Thyme & Sage offers a colorful and fun collection of specialized, 100% cotton towels to handle Mom’s kitchen needs and do it in style.

Just like she wouldn’t want to have just one knife in her kitchen but rather a kit of useful knives, the Towel Kit with three distinct and unique tools to get any job done in the kitchen.

Each set comes with three different towels, including the No. 1, a fluffy terry towel designed for cleaning only that can be used for wiping or drying dirty hands, soaking up spills, and mopping up counters, the No. 2, which is perfect for covering rising dough, lining bread pans while it rises, and writing out vegetables like spinach or zucchini, and the No. 3, which she can sling over her shoulder as she cooks to aid with taking hot pans out of the oven,

For Mother’s Day, Thyme & Sage is also offering a special gift set that includes two No. 2 towels and a wooden spoon for $24.

Kloveo Champagne Stopper

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

The $25 Kloveo Champagne Stopper is the perfect accessory when Mom hosts her next brunch gathering! When hosting brunch, champagne is a must, but sometimes it goes to waste because once opened, the bubbly loses its fizz.

Kloveo is the perfect tool to preserve Mom’s champagne and save it for later on!

Chrome-plated stainless steel body and hinge construction make this the most durable sparkling wine stopper on the market.

Carhartt Women’s Rain Defender Relaxed Lightweight Coat

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Summer weather can instantly change from shining skies to chilly downpours, and the $79.99 Carhartt Women’s Rain Defender Relaxed Lightweight Coat is ready to keep Mom warm and dry.

It’s made of mesh-lined nylon with a water-repellent coating that stands up to light rain. This long layer weighs in at two ounces, making it easy to stash into mom’s bag just in case.

Keika Charcoal Peppermint & Tea Tree Soap

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Keika is a Canadian-based, minority-owned, eco-conscience wellness brand created with the goal of helping people & the planet. All of their products are responsibly sourced and vegan; best of all, for every item sold, they plant a tree in a developing country.

This brand of luxurious & skin-nurturing soaps was started by a registered nurse and her husband in their kitchen. What began as a hobby and an effort to remove harmful ingredients from their skincare has become a booming business that serves people & the planet.

Their flagship product, the Keika Charcoal Bar, continues to be a chart-topper helping consumers create a positive change in their skin while also supporting the environment.

Some of the highlights of the Keika Charcoal Peppermint & Tea Tree Soap include how it is so good at cleansing skin and unclogging pores to get rid of acne, pimples, blackheads, and excess oil; the soap washes away impurities, sebum, and dead skin cells, leaving Mom feeling smooth and moisturized.

Crafted from nature-derived ingredients, including bentonite clay and pure activated charcoal, and scented with peppermint and tea tree essential oil, the soap is triple-milled to last longer and lather better; it’s also vegan and cruelty-free with no artificial fragrances, no plastic packaging, and it is safe for sensitive or troubled skin.

For every product sold, Keika plants a tree in developing countries to help rebuild land destroyed by deforestation. To date, they have planted over 111,000 trees in 9 countries!

You can get a single bar of Keika Charcoal Peppermint & Tea Tree Soap for $9.99, or you can subscribe and save 10% on each bar with monthly delivery. Mom is going to love this!

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom likes to sleep with full body support, she’s going to love the $119.99 Sleep Number Body Pillow, which will give her conforming, head-to-toe comfort with a cool-to-the-touch feel.

A unique blend fill of premium down alternative fibers and memory foam offers Mom soft, contouring support; the outer fabric has a cool, soothing feel.

This memory foam body pillow is hypoallergenic for allergy-sensitive sleepers, and a removable, machine-washable cover is included.

RYOBI ONE+ 18V Lithium-Ion Cordless EVERCHARGE Hand Vacuum Kit

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom hates busting out the “big vac” when there are small messes to clean up, or if she needs an easy way to keep her car clean, she’ll appreciate the $69 RYOBI ONE+ 18V Lithium-Ion Cordless EVERCHARGE Hand Vacuum Kit.

The kit includes a 1.3 Ah Compact Battery and Wall Adaptor/Charger, and it features the EVERCHARGE system, so the vacuum’s internal charging system will keep the attached battery charged without removal when the vac is placed on its wall mount adaptor.

The lightweight 18V ONE+ EVERCHARGE Hand Vac is quiet and powerful, and its unique nose shape will allow mom access to tight spaces. One press of the power button and it stays on, so there’s no need for mom to keep pressing it,

The vac’s dual filter system captures debris for removal, and the large canister’s design will make sure that debris that’s been picked up remains in the dust cup when it’s being used and when it is being vertically stored on the included wall mount.

The gift will be even more meaningful if you offer to hang it for Mom, so come prepared!

MyBevi Beverage Tumblers

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Staying hydrated is more important than ever, and MyBevi premium drinkware is a great way for Moms to keep hot and cold beverages cold.

We’ve always been impressed by the quality of the company’s products; what we especially love, and one of the many reasons they deserve to be on this list, is the variety of sizes, shapes, and colors they offer.

If Mom wants to travel light or likes to keep her rosé cool as she sips, you can get her a 12-ounce Hollywood Rocks Tumbler for $25. If Mom’s hydration needs are more significant, she might like the $30 26-ounce Classic Tumbler.

Even better, the company’s catalog is so extensive that a product is likely to be the right size and shape while also coming in Mom’s favorite color.

With MyBevi, you’ll get her a gift she’ll use at a price you can afford.

FUEL Charging Products

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Moms may be special, but they still need to charge their iPhones like the rest of us. FUEL, a fairly new line of phone accessories from Case-Mate, has a great way for mom to top off her phone quickly and have a little fun when she does.

The $30 FUEL 30W PD 3.0 USB-C Fast Charging Wall Charger has a familiar design; the small rectangle is about the same size and shape as Apple’s small wall charger.

Unlike Apple’s offering, however, this wall charger’s prongs fold away so the wall charger can be thrown in a bag without worry the prongs might get bent.

In addition, the FUEL Wall Charger has a fun, translucent design so that you can see the inner workings of the charger. Sure, it’s still just a wall charger, but the fun appearance will hopefully make Mom smile.

The FUEL 30W PD 3.0 USB-C Fast Charging Wall Charger is available in four different colors; you can also get a four-pack with all the colors for just $100.

Then there’s the $30 FUEL Lightning to USB-C Cable, which is 6.5’ long and has an integrated silicone strap to keep things tidy when not in use.

The braided design of the cable looks and feels great, but, more importantly, the company indicates it increases the cable’s durability many times over. It’s currently on sale for just $20.

Jabra Speak2 75

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Is Mom still working remotely? Is she sick of holding her phone to her head during long calls? Has she grown tired of the crummy audio from her laptop during Zoom calls? If you answered “yes” to any of these, you’d want to consider getting Mom the $369 Jabra Speak2 75.

The big sister of the Jabra speakerphone Charles recently reviewed, the Speak2 75 is a powerful speakerphone that offers up to twenty hours of battery life, both wired and Bluetooth connectivity, and four beam-forming microphones. Most importantly, the audio quality is outstanding.

It is solidly constructed, with a surprising amount of heft; this, too, speaks to its quality. I especially love that Jabra recognized that many modern laptops don’t have USB-A ports but that many older laptops still have them; they include a cable that can be both USB-A and USB-C.

The next time you do a family Zoom call, you can expect Mom to gush about how easy it is to use and how great everyone sounds!

Redimì Note 12 Pro 5G

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom prefers Android phones and needs something updated, you should check out the beautiful Redimì Note 12 Pro 5G.

This gorgeous phone has glass plates on the front and back connected by a flat metal band. Chamfered edges where the front and back plates meet the side band offer a refined look and a comfortable grip when holding the phone for any length of time.

Mom will love the clean, minimalist design, the large 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay with a 120Hz display refresh rate, the fast Snapdragon 732G processor, the camera array featuring a 50MP camera, and the included 67W fast charging wall adapter.

You’ll love the price; the factory-unlocked Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G + 4G with 128GB of storage and 6GB of memory is under $350 on Amazon!!

Fomin Products

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom is worried about the environment and trying to do her part to reduce the amount of trash going into landfills from her house, you might want to check out Fomin products.

Sure, they might fall on the practical “gee, thanks for the socks” side of things, but for the mom who is worried about her children and grandchildren’s future, these might be just the thing.

Fomin Antibacterial Paper Soap Sheets can replace the liquid soap in the big plastic bottle on her bathroom counter. The soap thins come in various scents or, if you prefer, you can get them unscented.

Each soap thin looks and feels like a small piece of small paper. Add water, however, and the soap thin dissolves in soap so you can wash up as you usually would. Best of all, there are no plastic bottles to be thrown into the ocean when the soap is used up.

We especially love how easy it is to throw a packet of soap thins into a bag, thereby eliminating the need for the handy wipes that inevitably come in single-use plastic containers. Each box includes 100 soap sheets, and prices start at $7.99.

Fomin Eco-Clean Face Towels are made from 100% natural viscose fibers that are chemical-free, vegan, and fully biodegradable. Best of all, they are extra soft and gentle on even the most delicate body parts.

The towels ship in a paper box of 50 that has adhesive tabs, so the box can be affixed to a wall and used as a convenient dispenser.

Perhaps most importantly, the product is excellent, and, as the company notes, “With each purchase of Fomin Eco-Smart towels, you are saving 12 ocean-bound plastic bottles from polluting our waters.”

It’s a win for Mom and for the planet!

Peak Scents Plant-Based Skincare

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Mom has likely noticed that organic products often charge a premium over their less “mindful” competition. Peak Scents Plant-Based Skincare looks to change that. They produce “healthy and sustainable skincare” that is also affordable.

Their products are cruelty-free and sustainable. As they put it, “Our mission is to provide soulcare through plant-based skincare that is accessible to everyone.”

Two products worth considering are the $32 Rose Phyto³ Facial Oil and the $36 Rose Phyto³ Cleansing Milk.

The Peak Scents Rose Phyto3 Facial Oil is a blend of rose and acai stem cells, raw cold-pressed oils, and pure essential oils. It smells great, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t feel greasy.

If mom’s face needs a bit of soothing and hydration, she’ll love Rose Phyto³ Cleansing Milk. It’s rich in colloidal oat, avocado, and reship seed oil and is great even if mom has sensitive skin.

It removes dirt without stripping the skin’s natural oils and smells wonderful. The company even notes that it can be used instead of shaving cream.

Peak Scents also offers bundles, which are the perfect way to give mom several products to try!

Every Cycle Products

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

If Mom is going all in on environmentalism, she probably isn’t thrilled with the plastic applicators that come with tampons. She might appreciate getting the Every Cycle Pro.

The fact is, the average woman throws away over 10,000 plastic applicators during her period lifetime. That’s a lot of plastic entering landfills and the oceans.

Every Cycle offers a reusable applicator for under $30 and a box of 16 tampons made from organic cotton for $6.50.

Sure, it’s not what most people think of when they think, “Let me get something great for my mom.” But for the mom who cares about the planet, this might be just right.

Joe-Le Soap Small Batch Self-Care Products

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Your mom is one of a kind, so why is she using boring, mass-produced, chemical-laden soaps, scrubs, butters, and lip balms?

Joe-Le Soap offers 100% natural, plant-based, eczema-friendly, organic soaps, sugar scrubs, body butters, hair butters, and lip conditioners. We tried a number of them before inclusion in this gift guide, and we approve!

Their Mother’s Day Gift Set offers a great selection of products for Mom to try; it includes a 6-ounce Rosewater and Lavender Bar, a 4-ounce Ultra Stress Relief Body Butter with CBD and Lavender, a 12-ounce Himalayan Rose Sugar Scrub, and more for just $68.99.

It’s a great value, but this deal won’t be around for long.

H2OAudio Sonar Pro Underwater Headphones

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Summer will soon be here, meaning it’s almost time for Mom to open her pool. If mom loves to swim laps but hates the monotony, the $179.99 H2OAudio Sonar Pro Underwater Bone Conduction Headphones will be perfect.

All she has to do is clip them to her goggles, and she’ll be able to listen to her tunes while she does the backstroke.

The headphones have an IPX8 rating and are 100% waterproof up to 12′. Fully charged, they’ll provide up to seven hours of playback. That means Mom can swim with her music multiple days in a row before needing to recharge the headphones.

Perhaps best of all is that the H2OAudio Sonar Pro Underwater Headphones offer Bluetooth and onboard storage. Bluetooth is great if mom is above the water’s surface and wants to stream music from her phone or smartwatch, but the 8GB of memory is excellent if mom is fully submerged while swimming.

With a capacity of up 2,000 songs, Mom will never have to hear a song repeated during her swims this summer.

Denago Commute Model 1

Gear Diary's 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide and Giveaway: Our Picks Will Help You Treat Mom in Style!

Denago first came onto the electric bike scene a little over a year ago with their Snag City Model 1. Since then, their portfolio of offerings has grown significantly.

The Denago Commute Model 1 is a superb Class 3 electric bike. Available in your choice of step-thru or top-tube (we have the top-tube version and love it), the fact that the Commute 1 comes in two sizes means you’ll be able to get Mom the bike that is the perfect size for her.

If Mom is between 4’ 11” and 5’ 8”, you’ll want to get her the S/M version. If she is 5’8” or taller, you’ll want to go for the L/XL version.

In both cases, you’ll get a Class 3 bike with a suspension fork and seat post for comfort, hydraulic disk brakes for safety, and a rear rack so the bike can replace mom’s car for local travel.

At under $1800, this is a quality electric bike that doesn’t cut corners. Mom will love it!
