28 Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Leading Lady

2. Hatch Restore
The gift of sleep is the gift that keeps giving. This sleep assistant lets the user personalize a sleep and wake-up routine, read with a soft-glow light, awake with a gentle sunrise alarm that gradually brightens, listen to a library of soothing sleep sounds, and more.

3. Furtuna Skin Rituale Luminoso Transformation Set
If you’re shopping for a woman who’s all about clean beauty, this kit is a must. The products are sourced from nutrient-dense plants that grow wildly on La Furtuna Estate in Sicily. Because they grow abundantly, farmers are able to ensure sustainable wild foraging; what’s more, the company uses sound bath—a process in which sound waves extract the nutrients from the plants, rather than harsh chemicals—to keep from damaging them. The Acqua Serena Micellar Cleansing Essence is a three-in-one cleanser, toner, and essence that gently preps the skin; the Porte Per La Vitalità Face and Eye Serum is like a vitamin bath for skin, safely brightening, tightening, and lending antioxidant benefits; and the Due Alberi Biphase Moisturizing Oil nourishes and hydrates with its blend of olive leaf water, olive oil, and magnolia extract. Together, they block free radical damage and defend against environmental skin stressors. Because these are plant-based, the play well with other skincare products, too.

She can target arms, abs, and glutes; strengthen knee joints; and reduce stiffness with one low-impact machine that folds up and rolls out of the way when not in use.
7. Kohler Moxie Showerhead with Bluetooth Speaker
Upgrade her experience with this upmarket Harman Kardon-powered speaker that’s combined with a showerhead. Thanks to a magnetic docking system, she can also take this speaker out to the yard, pool, beach, and beyond.
8. Haus Sampler Kit
The versatility of Haus’ apéritif flavors is only paralleled by its chic packaging. Opt among four bottles in one of the company’s two sampler kits, which include bottles like Rose Rosé, Ginger Yuzu, and Grapefruit Jalapeño. Straying from convention, Haus sources real fruits and botanicals, not artificial flavors, to concoct modern, low-ABV apéritifs that “have the flavor complexity of a cocktail, but are low enough in alcohol—stronger than wine, lighter than whiskey—that you can enjoy them all evening (or afternoon).” This is a brilliant gift for moms who enjoy family gatherings and entertaining friends.
