She'd probably be happy with just a hug, but still: Why not spoil the woman who spent hours rocking you to sleep as a baby and wiping your tears after that horrific breakup when you 16 years old? Here are 10 thoughtful gifts for Mom.
For the Active Mom

At night, it tracks sleep cycles, helps you learn how to sleep better and wakes you silently in the morning.
Gaiam Massage Therapy Kit, $18, smile.amazon.com
This kit includes a workout DVD showcasing gentle, rejuvenating poses combined with three massage therapy balls. This dynamic program will let Mom use her body's own weight to massage away tightness and deepen relaxation.
For the Breastfeeding Mom
Sarah Wells "Maddy" Breast Pump Bag, $145, smile.amazon.com
Named after Sarah Wells' daughter, the "Maddy" has all the bells and whistles Mom's been dreaming of in a breast pump bag. It's also timeless and season-less in its classic shape and neutral colors. And when Mom's done pumping, this all-in-one satchel can transition to a diaper bag, Mom bag, overnight bag or simply a cute purse.
AbbieGrace Designs Infinity Nursing Scarf, $25, smile.amazon.com
This nursing cover quickly and easily converts to a scarf. It's made from a high-quality jersey knit that drapes beautifully and feels soft and light against baby's skin when nursing. The scarves are so cute and comfortable that even moms who aren't nursing babies might want one.

For the Book-Loving Mom
Kindle Paperwhite, $99, smile.amazon.com

Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light. Plus, it's thinner than a pencil and lighter than a paperback so it's super portable.
Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, $40, smile.amazon.com
Maybe Mom already has a Kindle Paperwhite. This cover is a cute accessory. The genuine leather cover was engineered to be the lightest and thinnest protective cover. It's innovative, form-fitted interior secures the Kindle without any hinges or straps. Plus, the cover automatically puts the Paperwhite to sleep when it is closed and wakes your device upon opening, making it so easy to jump back into the latest book.
