12 Christmas Gifts for Mom

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 here. Here are some things I have gotten more recently that I think would be an excellent gift for 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 make their life easier or pampers them.

12 Christmas Gifts for Mom

L’Occitane Advent Calendar – I do not know any women who would turn away beauty products. L’Occitane’s Limited Edition Advent Calendar comes with 24 Beauty Treats! And it’s only $59! They do one of these every year with different products.

Pearl Earrings

If you are considering jewelry I suggest going with pearls. A pair of pearl earrings can go with almost any outfit and lets face it, it is hard to pick out jewelry for a woman. That’s why I suggest going with something classic. PearClasp.com sent me a pair of pearl earrings this past summer and I wear them with everything. 


This heavenly massageball makes a great gift for mom who is probably on her feet way too much! It warms up the body and relaxes the soul, with heat and ice therapy options.  For heat therapy, microwave the orange gel-core and for cold therapy freeze the blue gel core.

Hoover BH70700 Quest 700 Bluetooth Enabled Robot Vacuum Cleaner

I gotta say there is nothing like having a robotic vacuum. While I work on getting something else done this Hoover is doing my vacuuming. Anything that saves a single mom time and gets something done for her is a win win. Hoover Robotic Vacuum

Samsung Active Washer and Dryer

So maybe giving someone appliances does not seem romantic, but having a washer and dryer with large capacity capabilities is life changing for a mom. She can go from doing 10 loads of laundry a week, to only 3 or 4. I know this because that’s what happened to me when I got them!!

A video posted by Meagan Wristen (@mommytravels) on Oreck Elevate Conquer Lightweight Upright Filtration Bag Vacuum – Okay, I know what you are thinking two vacuums on one list. Well, they are both worthy of a mention. This one is so lightweight I have no issues taking it up and down the stairs. Also, it kind of just goes on its own. I do not have to push around a heavy vacuum anymore.

Google Home and Google Home Minis

Having a Google Home can help out moms in an assortment of different ways.

Play Music – Moms can stream all their favorite music through this.

Remember Things – You can use Google Home to remember things. Just tell it “Hey Google, remember that my bill is due on Monday” or “OK Google, remember that my house key is in my desk drawer.” In order to retrieve the info, ask it “Hey Google, when is my bill due” or “Hey Google, where is my house key?”

Find your phone – It will find your phone when you tell it “Hey Google, find my phone.”

Track Your Day –  Say “Hey Google, tell me about my day.” and the device will give you the time, weather, your next Google Calendar meeting, and a news report. You can customize your day in the Google Home app settings section. Choose “My Day.” there you can modify what it will answer.

Get Questions Answered – When your kids ask you a bizillion questions you do not know the answer to you can ask Google questions and learn the answers you may need.

Request an Uber – Google will call an Uber for you!

Entertain the Kids: The Google Home has partnered with Disney and there are a bunch of fun games that kids will love. Just tell it “Hey Google play __________” Just insert the name of one of these games in the blank.

You can’t go wrong with a bottle of wine. It can be a little difficult to pick out wine for someone if you do not know their tastes. I have a few I can recommend.

Lovino Sangria goes with anything and most people like sangria. Lovino Sangria is a medal-winning bottled sangria unlike any other bottled sangria on the market. This “Modern American Craft Sangria” is made in Wisconsin and has a cult-like following. It’s made with California-grown Cabernet Franc grapes and blended with natural flavors of summer berries, orange, and coconut, and is available for shipment to 21yr old+ at https://www.monarosewinery.com/products/sangria.

Mionetto’s Prosecco is a good bet when you do not know someone’s wine preference. Here are two anyone would enjoy.

  1. Prosecco DOC Trevi so Brut has aromatic notes of honey and acacia blossom, this wine can be served chilled on its own or used to create your own holiday champagne cocktails.
  2. Mionetto’s Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG is a luxury sparkling wine boasting a rich array of sensory impressions such as green apple, pear, emphatic citrus, and spring wildflowers.
