Hey hey, the 14th of May (otherwise known as Mother's Day) is nigh! You might be planning breakfast in bed (or a phone call if you're long distance), but if you're looking to surprise her with a little something extra, we've got 39 ideas ahead.

1. A wreath that could double as a fairy crown (and a subscription to match).

2. The essential tote so essential it's called the Essential Tote.

3. 12 pints of creamy, dreamy, off-the-vanilla-path ice cream (Savannah Buttermint!), all year long. If you just want a single, Jeni's has a Mother's Day Collection, including one pint of Chamomile Chardonnay—a super small batch they ran off just for mamas.

4. Wine in a can. (Yes, there is a rosé one.)

5. A day pack named after a pastry, and in a zillion colors. For packing baby wipes, or snacks for a hike, or a stack of books to return to the library.

6. The best live album from one of the best voices. You gotta R-E-S-P-E-C-T Aretha. (Free gift alert: Just send her the Spotify link!)

7. A flower book full of saturated technicolor photos she can sink into. Open and aaaaah.

8. An herb-stuffed, sauna-like facial steam—without having to sit next to a naked person. Fennel, rose, licorice... breathe in.
