6. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Set, $399
Everybody wants this dryer! Myself included. It’s the best hair dryer on the market today. It dries your hair quickly (6 times faster than a regular dryer) while preventing extreme heat damage to protect natural shine. It measures air temperature 20 times each second to ensure the temperature is under control while remaining ultra fast-drying, thanks to its controlled high-velocity airflow that moves air at a rate of 41 liters every second. The motor is located in the handle, which completely rebalances the dryer’s weight and shape. It’s tuned to produce one inaudible frequency and is enveloped by a vibration reduction system to reduce noise.

10. NappieSack™ Blue, $49.99
This is the perfect gift for a new mom! Instead of toting around an ugly or massive diaper bag she can turn any of her medium to large size totes into a diaper bag with this insert! It’s adjustable to fit any bag, has many pockets, is !00% nylon so it is easy to clean and it comes with a changing pad. Brilliant!
This two-piece TAHNYC (pronounced Tonic) Antiaging Care set is concentrated on diminishing deep and fine lines. These powerful Peptide driven formulas work in synergy to address expression lines, firmness and suppleness while also improving skin tone, hyperpigmentation, hydration and nourishment. What I love about this line is that it is free of unnecessary fillers, texture makes and slip agents, which many (like me) have allergies to.
12. Hello Fresh Classic Meal Plan, from $59.94
I realize this might not sound like the “ideal” Mother’s Day gift because she probably wants to be taken out for dinner. However, preparing a delicious meal with all the ingredients (already portioned) with easy to follow instructions is a treat for any other night. An even bigger treat is having your husband prepare dinner. I have personally tried 3 dinners from Hello Fresh and one was better than the next. You really can’t go wrong.
