Editor's Picks: What We Want for Mother's Day TOUT

Parents / Reese Herrington

Mother's Day is around the corner, so we asked our fellow editors and writers at Parents—who also happen to be parents themselves—what they really want for their special holiday this year. It should come as no surprise that most of the things moms really want are related to making their lives easier or more comfortable—all with a dash of self-care thrown in. We may often be the primary caregiver, but we want some personal TLC, too.

From an at-home nails kit to oh-so-soft sheets to help make good sleep a reality for once, to a gorgeous electric kettle that looks as good sitting out on the counter as it does while being used, these are the things we're secretly coveting for Mother's Day.

The Dry Gloss Manicure Kit

Bare Hands The Dry Gloss Manicure Kit.

Bare Hands

"I love manicures but really dislike when the polish starts chipping, which it inevitably does. As a busy mom, this kit comes in handy between nail appointments as it keeps my nails looking healthy and presentable! It's the perfect 'stocking stuffer' for Mother's Day!"

-Grace Bastidas, Editor-in-Chief

To buy: The Dry Gloss Manicure Kit $42; barehands.us

Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set

Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set

Cozy Earth

“My favorite Mother's Day gift tends to be something practical that I 'need'—but a fancier version of it than I would buy for myself. This cooling bamboo sheet set from Cozy Earth makes me feel like I'm sleeping on silk—but it's machine-washable, so actually better than silk IMO.”

Ninja Specialty Coffeemaker

Ninja CM401 Specialty 10-Cup Coffee Maker, with 4 Brew Styles for Ground Coffee, Built-in Water Reservoir, Fold-Away Frother & Glass Carafe, Black


"I spend an embarrassing amount on money on iced coffees at Starbucks and after discovering that I can make my favorite coffee drinks at home for a fraction of the price, I'm dreaming of this Ninja coffee maker. It can make full pots of coffee, single cups, and fancy drinks like lattes or cold brews with foam. Let's hope my husband is reading..."
