Let’s face it, mom is normally one of the hardest people to buy for on your list. So here’s a list of a few things on our holiday gift wishlist that would make any mama happy. Here’s goes:
1. Our MOM MAMA MOMMY™ tee
You saw that coming, right? It’s comfy + cute. Don’t know moms size? Snag a gift card + let her pick it out herself. She’ll love ya for it.
2. Capri Blue Volcano Candle
You can find this candle all over the place because it’s amazing. It smells like the spa. Seriously. Tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, and limes, redolent with lightly exotic mountain greens. Best part, we linked to Amazon and it’s on Prime. If your mom doesn’t love blue, run to Anthropologie and get one of the beautiful designed ones they offer.
3. Starbuck Gift Card
It’s not the most personal gift, we will give you that, but it’s one we love to get. Because, coffee.
4. The Magic of Motherhood Book by Coffee + Crumbs
This book is our favorite book of the year. It’s a compilation of short essays written by mothers. They don’t offer advice, but rather tell you stories about mothering + life. No matter what stage of motherhood your mom is in, there is something she will connect with in this book. Bonus, if she has little kids, the essays are short so you can read an entire one in five minutes. So, it’s perfect for in between all the choas motherhood can bring.
5. Present Over Perfect Book by Shauna Niequist
Here’s another book we loved this year. If mom likes to read about mothering, or living simple + with meaning – this book is for her. We really enjoyed it.
6. Cozy Jammies | We love these from Target.
If you do grab these exact ones, we recommend buying one size smaller than moms normal size as they run a bit big. But what mom doesn’t love a pair of cute + cozy pajamas? Score big points + throw in a pair of matching slippers.
7. Anything with your picture on it.
Let’s get serious, moms of young kids love pretty much anything with their kids pictures on it. Shutterfly offers pretty much all the things to customize with pictures. We’ve gotten ornaments, playing cards, bags, blankets, canvas prints, metal prints, mugs, tumblers – and loved them all.
8. A cozy throw blanket | saranoni ivory bamboni blanket
Okay, your mom may not be a throw blanket + pillow mom. Does she have throw pillows on all the couches? Does she like to curl up in a warm blanket? Most mamas we know do – especaially living in the midwest. If she does – this blanket is by far our favorite. It’s so soft + cozy.
9. An initial necklace
It’s simple, chic, and personal. Plus, it goes with everything so mom doesn’t have to think about what jewelry to put on in the morning. It’s a win – win – win.
Let us know if you get one of these suggestions in the comments below – or if we missed a must-have mom item. Happy shopping!
