Your mom, otherwise known as The First Lady of Your Life (don’t tell your wife), deserves something special for the simple reason that she, uh, pushed you out into this world and also for that one time (actually, many times) she got you out of a jam. Here, a roundup of the most perfect gifts for all kinds of mom, yours included.

1| For The Mom Who Is Woke


Good to know: Every holiday gift set you buy from The Body Shop provides refugee children with a safe place to play for a year. So consider the Frosted Berries set (right), a care package enriched with cranberry seed oil, red berries, creamy white flowers, and sweet vanilla. The Body Shop
