Is your mom more of a listener than a reader? Since the Kindle is an Amazon product, it syncs with Amazon-owned Audible, a subscription-based audiobook and podcast service. A subscription costs $14.95 per month.

Alternatively, consider gifting a Kindle Unlimited subscription to allow your reader access to three million magazines, books, audiobooks, and more. 

The monthly fee for each Amazon service is worth it if your gift recipient is an avid reader (or listener). The service is $9.99 per month.

Bonsai gardening is the careful cultivation of a miniature version of a tree in a small container. 

It’s a delicate art that can feel intimidating for beginners, which is why a bonsai starter kit — complete with a thorough instruction manual, several types of seeds, pruning tools, and growing pots — can come in handy.

Plants in this kit shouldn’t grow higher than 25 inches, and first-time gardeners can choose from Norway spruce, bristlecone pine, Black Poui, and flame tree seeds. The kit costs $14.99.

This one-pound box of dark chocolates with melt-in-your-mouth centers includes 24 pieces of chocolate in flavors like raspberry cream, lemon, vanilla buttercream, and marzipan. The box costs $37.70.

Each durable Cotopaxi bag is brightly colored, made from recycled nylon, and unique — no two bags have the same color scheme. 

While Cotopaxi’s backpacks and totes are usually associated with hiking, their bags’ durability and carrying capacity make them just as ideal for everyday use as for overnighting in the woods. The tote is $60.

They’re also the ideal surface for decorating with stickers and personalized accessories. Since the lids include both a spout and a straw, they’re more versatile than most other reusable water bottles. The bottle costs $26.50.
