Wondering what to get your mom for Christmas, Mother’s Day, or her birthday? Or perhaps you are dating a single mom and unsure what kind of gift to give her. Here are some things I have gotten more recently that I think would be an excellent gift for a mom or for a single mom.

You will notice a resounding theme for most of these items, many of them make life easier. Moms are tired, especially single moms so get them something that makes their life easier or pampers them. For example, a monthly clothing subscription makes life way easier and it is so much fun!

Christmas Gifts for Mom

Gifts for Moms

  1. Throw Blanket: Who doesn’t need a blanket? When you do not know what to give someone this is always a good choice. 
  2. Family Name Sign: Custom signs are always a nice gift to get.
  1. Instant Pot: These are still all the rage on Pinterest and will save moms time. I even have a tamale instant pot recipe on the site. 
  2. Revlon Hair Dryer & Styler: Another item that will save mom time! The Revlon Hair Dryer Brush is also great as long as you do not have thin hair. Revlon Hair Dryer brush
  3. Jewelry – A simple piece of jewelry that goes with anything like Pearl Earrings. Kendra Scott makes some beautiful jewelry.  Shop Kendra Scott Bracelets.

    If you are considering jewelry, I suggest going with pearls or a simple necklace. A pair of pearl earrings can go with almost any outfit as can a gold necklace and let’s face it, it is hard to pick out jewelry for a woman. That’s why I suggest going with something classic. I wear them with everything. Pearl earrings make a great gift for mom

  4. Tory Burch Handbag: Super sassy, crossbody purse.
  5. Portable Power Charger: A slim charger that won’t weigh you down.
  6. Echo Dot
  7. Temperature Control Smart Mug or a coffee warmer. Noah got me a coffee warmer last Christmas and I love it!
  8. Ancestry DNA Kit
  9. Barefoot Dreams Cardigan – picking out clothes for someone is not easy. Stick with a neutral cardigan. I guarantee she will be able to pair it with somethings in her closet. 
  10. UGG Fleece Lined Socks 
  11. Gold Bangle Bracelet or better yet a bracelet that doubles as a fitness tracker. The IVY by Bellabeat is the only health and wellness tracker created for women by women. Designed as an elegant bracelet that monitors your biometric data, physical activity, and mental health, Ivy knows what you need to do to level up your self-care routines and reach peak performance.Ivy by Bellabeat
  12. Wooden Bathtub Tray
  13. Love Knot Earrings
  14. What I Love About Mom Journal
  15. Spa Finder Gift Card: Send mom to get a massage!
  16. Kate Spade Leather Watch
  17. Striped Pajamas
  18. Chanel Perfume
  19. Pillow: Getting a better pillow can be life-changing. If you are a side sleeper get the Sleep Artisan’s Side Sleeper Pillow. This natural latex side sleeper pillow is specially designed for those who sleep on their sides but works well for combination sleepers as well. Made in the USA with the finest natural ingredients. Features an adjustable loft to customize the pillow height so it’s perfect for you!
  20. Gucci Card Case: A slim cardholder. 
  21. Mom Life Mug: Any cute mug makes a good gift. 
  22. Urban Decay Eye Shadow Palette: A nice palette is always something that is useful.

27. WineWine and champagne

You can’t go wrong with a nice bottle of wine. It can be a little difficult to pick out wine for someone if you do not know their tastes. Here’s a couple of good ones:

Delola Spritz

If your mom doesn’t like wine then we suggest getting a bottle of spritzer! Delola spritzes include the Paloma Rosa, Bella Berry, and L’Orange, and are as easy to enjoy by simply cracking open the bottle and pouring it over a full glass of ice. 

28. Succulents img 5427

Succulents require little to no care and are they easily brighten up a space, even a small space. Moms will appreciate having planets that do not take a lot of time and effort to care for. These also make for a great DIY project such as succulents arrangements. They come in various shapes and sizes, can fit in small space, as well as make good centerpieces for the room.
