Gardening is a rewarding hobby for moms everywhere. But nobody gets a bounty of fruits, veggies, and herbs without getting their hands dirty. These gloves make this chore an absolute joy. Sharp claws affixed to the gloves tear into dirt like a hot knife through butter. They also double as super-villain flair, just in case mom wants to take a crazy turn in her golden years.

Popcorn is a tasty treat, but more unhealthy than a drive-thru menu if you buy the stuff in the bag.

Simply put in popcorn kernels plus optional seasonings, and in less than three minutes, mom’s got enough snacks to get through Eat Pray Love. And because it collapses, it takes up almost no space.
