Put down the candle.
We get it. Your mom is one of the fun moms. The kind that’s quick with a dirty joke and deserves a truly unique Mother’s Day gift. We’ve curated a list just for them, and their out-there personalities.
If your mom is a total normie, don’t fret! There’s plenty of offerings here to diversify her life too.
Help the world traveler in your life learn a new language before they embark on their next vacation. Rosetta Stone and its companion app are available on every device from computers to smartphones. Because of that, the lucky recipient of your Rosetta Stone gift will be able to polish their Italian anywhere, from their bedroom or a scenic Tuscan villa. It’s no surprise that over 12,000 corporations, 9,000 non-profit organizations, and 22,000 educational institutions worldwide count on Rosetta Stone when it comes to dishing out language know-how. Beginning courses take as little as 120 hours to master, on average. New students can choose from one of 25 languages and finally become bilingual with three, six, 12 and 24 month subscriptions. Eager learners can take full advantage of live coaches and speech recognition technology to make the experience as smooth as ever. From now through Mother’s Day, learning a new language costs as little as $7 a month for a 24 month subscription.
No matter how tech savvy mom may pretend to be, there’s no stronger force in the world than nostalgia. The Polaroid Snap works just like the ones she used when you were a kid. It’s far more satisfying than any iPhone selfie could ever be. There’s also space for a 32GB flash drive, should they wish to jump between digital and analog.

Check all judgments at the door. For the mom who’s so fun they’re downright bacchanalian, there’s the SipCaddy. It slaps onto any surface in your bath and holds a beverage, alcoholic or otherwise.

Popcorn is a tasty treat, but more unhealthy than a drive-thru menu if you buy the stuff in the bag. Popping the old fashioned way works but is a little more Little House on the Prairie than most people can handle. But a quick, healthy treat can be had with this simple gadget. 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.
Price on Amazon: $16

Not only is there 16 oz of Matcha powder, there’s a measuring spoon and even an electric whipper to make it frothy.
