This drug-free solution helps to encourage strong, beautiful hair growth for thinning hair from the inside out.

Beautycounter Rejuvenating Collection – $383 ($429 value!)
It’s no secret that kids can give mom a few premature wrinkles – but now you can also help mom fight the signs of aging in the safest way possible with Beautycounter. The Rejuvenating Collection contains the brand’s entire anti-aging lineup, including a makeup-removing and moisturizing cleanser, a set of toner pads to minimize the appearance of pores, three day and night products to firm up skin and give it a healthy glow, and an eye cream to minimize puffiness and dark circles. In other words? A heavenly skincare regime in one awesome set. I’ve written about the brand before and I still have nothing but rave reviews for the way their products leave my skin absolutely radiant – but are also totally safe to use, thanks to their stringent ingredient selection process. Trust me – mom will LOVE this!

Does mom love spending a night in and doing her nails? Make her routine a snap with MICRO Nail. How does it work? Simply use the two rollers in tandem to buff, smooth and shine up your nails.
