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 makes their life easier or pampers them.

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. 
  1. Family Name Sign: Custom signs are always a nice gift to get.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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
  4. 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

  5. Tory Burch Handbag: Super sassy, crossbody purse.
  6. Portable Power Charger: A slim charger that won’t weigh you down.
  7. Echo Dot
  8. Temperature Control Smart Mug
  9. Ancestry DNA Kit
  10. 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. 
  11. UGG Fleece Lined Socks 
  12. 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
  13. Wooden Bathtub Tray
  14. Love Knot Earrings
  15. What I Love About Mom Journal
  16. Spa Finder Gift Card: Send mom to get a massage!
  17. Kate Spade Leather Watch
  18. Striped Pajamas
  19. Chanel Perfume
  20. 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!
  21. Gucci Card Case: A slim cardholder.

26. Robotic 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. 

27. 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.

28. Wine

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:

  • Gran Moraine Brut Rosé (SRP $50). This Brut Rosé is a blend of multiple vintages – with each vintage adding distinctive qualities to the final blend. It is the epitome of style, grace, and elegance. Made using the traditional méthode champenoise, our Brut Rosé is a blend of 57 percent Chardonnay and 43 percent Pinot Noir.
  • 2019 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Chardonnay (SRP $40) is a rich, nuanced, and complex wine. The nose opens with aromas of baked apple, creamy meringue, ripe pineapple, mandarin orange, and fresh peach. The palate is supple, balanced, and integrated and exhibits flavors of tropical nectar, orange marmalade, baking spices, ambrosiam, and vanilla. It is at once vibrant and balanced while being creamy with a long, lingering finish.

29. Succulents

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.
