7 Gift Ideas for Mom


Gift giving isn’t always an easy thing, particularly when you’re buying for someone as special as Mom. Though it may be tempting to toss a gift certificate in that Christmas card, challenge yourself to think of that extra special gift that will have her saying, “How did you know that’s exactly what I wanted?”

  1. For the mom that likes (or needs!) to be pampered, give her the gift of luxury. An anti-aging mask, rich face cream and a terry cloth robe will bring the spa experience home.
  2. For a movie-lover, put together a girl’s night in gift basket filled with her favorite snacks, a movie and a fuzzy blanket or slippers.
  3. For a mom that loves to travel, go for items she can take with her on her next journey. A passport holder, a book to read on her next flight, a neck pillow or even travel-size goodies for their next trip are excellent for any jetsetter.
  4. For an adventure seeker, gift your mom an experience. Concert tickets for her favorite band, ziplining or a wild whitewater rafting trip will create memories that will last for a lifetime.
  5. For a makeup addict, look for a value set that has a little bit of everything or surprise her with a new lipstick in a shade she’ll love.
  6. For the mom that still has kids at home, assemble a Mom’s Survival Kit with daily essentials: lip balm, Advil, lip gloss, chocolate (that’s a daily need, right?) and gum. Put everything in a mason jar or empty tumbler, tie a bow on it and voila!
  7. For the mom that’s adamant that she doesn’t want you to spend a dime, a homemade coupon book is an easy, free gift idea. Think about all those tasks that make your mom’s life easier: walking the dog, babysitting your younger siblings, washing her car. Make it personal and make it fun!

It’s hard to shop for the woman who says she already has everything she needs. Imagine just how surprised she’ll be when you give her the gift she didn’t even know she wanted.
