Not only does Nest Fragrances Blue Garden Luxury Gift Set ($85; nestfragrances.com) include a candle, reed diffuser, and liquid hand soap lightly scented with hydrangea and hyacinth, but 10% of the retail price will also be donated to Austim Speaks (May is Austism Awareness month).
Retinol, hyaluronic acid, resveratrol: If your mother knew these beauty buzzwords long before they became industry staples, StriVectin Skin Revitalizing Essentials Kit ($89; strivectin.com) won't disappoint. It includes the brand-new SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles, which stimulates collagen-3 production (the collagen type gives skin its elasticity), along with the Advanced Retinol Night Treatment, Advanced Retinol Eye Treatment and Tightening Neck Cream.
Give your mother the gift of a trip to Japan—soft of. Tatcha Okasan Mother's Day Gift Set ($135; tatcha.com) includes the brand's most luxurious offerings, like Gold Camellia Beauty Oil (which contains actual flecks of gold), Gold Camellia Lip Balm, a Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask and—bonus—a box of Japanese candy from Kyoto.
If your mom has an eye for art, she'll appreciate the beauty of Sonia Kashuk Make a Face Brush Set ($25; target.com). A happy marriage of form and function, they're best for applying foundation and contouring—and pretty enough to display on a vanity or bathroom counter.
A good hair day might be the greatest gift of all. The Drybar Small Box Big Hair kit ($25; drybar.com) gives her all she needs—shampoo, conditioner, volumizing mousse, flexible hold hairspray—to get a smooth, shiny blowout at home. If she lives near a Drybar location, buy her a 6-pack or 12-pack of blowouts ($225-$440; drybar.com) through May 11th and she'll receive the set for free.
Give your mother something more than the typical floral scent with Ralph Lauren Midnight Romance Set ($105; dillards.com). Black vanilla and spicy bergamot lend some warmth (is there anything more maternal?) to a fresh bouquet of peony and jasmine. The smaller bottle is ideal for traveling.
Pamper your mother—and her guests—with a pretty hand soap and lotion set. Molton Brown Rose & Rhubarb Trio ($60; bluemercury.com) smells refreshing and subtly sweet; it's bright and fruity without being overpowering. The ribbon-wrapped dispensers are intended to be shown off, and the miniature tube of truffle-infused hand cream is perfect for her purse.
