6 Fun, Stylish Buys for Mom

  • Wine Not?
    When you're in the mood to kick back after a long day, try KARMA's single-serve sparkling wine. Feel like sharing? Open a bottle of Stellar Organics's Live-a-Little. It's sulfite-free (no more headaches), and there are four kinds to sample, including rose and a sauvignon/chenin-blanc blend. (KARMA, $23.96 for a four-pack, winerz.com; Live-a-Little, $10, stellarorganics.com for stores)

  • Green Peace
    Customize this extra-large biodegradable yoga mat by uploading a photo of your fave cutie (or choose an image from the company's gallery), which will then be printed with water-soluble ink. (Yogamatic, $85; yogamatic.com)

  • Grab Bag
    The perfect place to stash the essentials—a little cash, your cell, keys, and lipstick. This cute bag is easy to slip into a diaper bag or your coat pocket as you rush out the door to make school pickup. (Jimeale rp 700 cosmetic bag, $19.95; jimeale.com)

  • Nightlights (For Moms)
    Tired of doing all your late-night surfing in the dark so you won't wake up the baby (or your husband)? Plug this small LED light into the USB port of your laptop, and it'll give you just enough glow to see the keyboard. (Mr. Brightside, $8.99; biggerandbrighter.com)

  • Watch Out
    Yes, this high-tech timepiece is a splurge, but you'll be the coolest mom on the block when you put it on. And all those bar graphs (for hours, minutes, and seconds) make this a fun way to stay on schedule. (Zub Zenh by Nooka, $140; nooka.com)

  • Great Reads
    Two moms (of three!), two different dilemmas, two terrific novels. In The Stepmother, by Carrie Adams, Bea has to learn how to accept her ex's soon-to-be second wife while she struggles to get over him, deal with her daughters, and get a life. The mom in Sleepwalking in Daylight, by Elizabeth Flock, is still married, but she's fallen in love with someone else—and is desperately trying to reconnect with her goth-obsessed teenage daughter. (Harper, $24.99, Mira, $21.95; both out this month)
