Your mom may be the most tricky person on your Christmas list to shop for. She already has so much of what she needs and when you ask her what she wants, she just says she wants nothing more than your company. But, we all know mom wants a truly special gift that will show her just how much you care.

Consider a delightfully festive fruit arrangement featuring pineapple stars, chocolate dipped pineapple reindeer, white chocolate dipped pineapple snowmen, and more. Paired with a platter filled with oh-so-satisfying desserts like mini cheesecakes, gourmet brownies, and fresh-baked cookies in an assortment of scrumptious flavors, it’s a complete gift that’s sure to make mom’s Christmas brighter.

Want a personalized Christmas gift for mom? Why not customize a totally unique gift that’s perfectly tailored to her likes and interests? Create your own box of delectable chocolate dipped fruits including pineapple daisies, strawberries, apple wedges, and banana bites dipped in white or semisweet chocolate and topped with your mom’s favorite toppings like coconut, hazelnut crunch, graham cracker crumbs, and more. Or, create your own beautiful fruit arrangement just for mom including plain or chocolate dipped strawberries and pineapple daisies with your choice of toppings and tasty extras like a Gourmet Belgian Chocolate Pop, chocolate dipped apple wedges, or white and semisweet chocolate dipped banana bites.

“The Warmies microwavable slippers are the best gifts for mothers for Christmas when it’s cold outside. Dried millet seeds make the slippers heat-resistant, and their lavender-infused fur helps revitalize the body and mind with a relaxing scent.

Another thing about microwavable slippers is that they’re Oprah-approved. If your mother is a big Oprah fan, tell her she’s wearing the same slippers as her idol, and she’ll be ecstatic for sure.”

“My top gift recommendation for mom is a solo weekend or week-long trip after Christmas.

Moms give a lot of themselves throughout the year. While they might not be able to get away during the Christmas season, booking them a trip after Christmas allows them to relax and rejuvenate before another year begins.

It gives them uninterrupted time when they do not have to cater to anyone but themselves. From past experiences, I have found that mom appreciates this a lot.”

“Moms deserve a little pampering, especially if they’ve been busy navigating hosting duties during the holidays.

I’d recommend this Net a Porter Facialist kit which is loaded with products for an at-home spa experience.

If you want an affordable DIY option, you can buy some Himalayan sea salts or Epsom salts from the drug store, put them in a nice mason jar and add some therapeutic essential oils like lavender or even organic hemp CBD oil.”

“Help mom find some stress relief using more mindful breathing with this unique crystal necklace. In addition to its aesthetic qualities, this patent-pending necklace doubles as a mindful breathing tool which helps slow your breathing and calm your body and mind.

Studies have shown that mindful breathing can reduce levels of stress and anxiety, increase positivity, relax the mind, improve concentration, improve posture, release toxins, and strengthen the immune system. The company that makes and sells this necklace is 100% female-run. They also have a ‘crystal karma’ program through which they donate a portion of their profits to non-profit organizations that work to provide health care to children with respiratory diseases in developing countries.”

“Do you want to plan a special Christmas gift for your mom? OMG, so many options out there, right? First, you need to ask yourself those three questions:

  1. What type of person is your mom? Is she a housewife, a businesswoman, a passionate traveler?
  2. Does she have a special hobby? (If she is a book lover, you can never go wrong with a voucher from one of her favorite bookstores.)
  3. Does she like surprises? (If not, just stick to the more traditional choices!)

Now, if your mom is a housewife, you can easily impress her with kitchen appliances. I recommend a multi-cooker! It will save her a lot of time and money. I always go the extra mile and add one of those reindeer tablecloths. They are so Christmasy, and I already know she loves such details. (See what I did there – one useful present and one traditional!)

Another way to go is for something more sentimental: pick up a pretty frame and arrange for a photo collage of the whole family to be made. A good addition to this might be a cookie jar with handmade cookies. (Both presents show you dedicated some time to show her you love her!)

And if your mom is the traveling type, a voucher for a trip to a favorite destination of hers (or, if she likes surprises – an exotic place she never visited) would be the perfect gift! You can also take your mom to a beauty studio for a massage, manicure, haircut, or anything that she would enjoy. (Spoiling your mom is always one of the best options!)

Moms are usually happy and grateful for every gift their child would give them. However, it’s up to us to make them feel loved and respected. That’s why you should get creative and think about what they need or what would make them happy.”

“My favorite gift to give to my mom is a neck and shoulder massager.

There is nothing she likes more than sitting down after a long day and getting a back rub. Unfortunately, my dad’s arthritis now prevents him from giving long massages. Luckily, electronic massagers can get the job done. They run for around $50 on Amazon, so they are not only useful but also very affordable.

P.S. Another added benefit is that they aren’t really made to last. They usually break each year, so you can keep giving mom a new one each Christmas without the stress of thinking of new gift ideas!”

motherhood is the greatest thing she’s ever done. She’s traveled the world, and her favorite place is home.

“The best Christmas gift for a mom – and something she probably doesn’t already have – is a digital picture frame.

And trust me, these are not the tacky digital frames of yore. I adore having one in my house. Why? Because it’s HARD to update framed pictures around the house. It takes time. Which is something mamas don’t really have.

It also takes a lot of effort to pick your favorite picture when you have 395,873 frame-worthy ones to choose from. This solves that problem. It’s SO easy, you can send it all your favorite pics to rotate through, add any whenever you’d like, and kids and people of all ages in the house LOVE looking at them.

And here’s a bonus: A digital picture frame also makes a killer gift for grandmas! Whether they live 10 states away or 10 minutes away, I guarantee they’ll love it. And they don’t have to do a thing to ‘make it work!’ Win-win.”

“My favorite Christmas gift for mom is a family photo album. There’s nothing mothers like more than celebrating, appreciating, and showing off their families. This Christmas, create a custom photo album of family memories for your mother to appreciate. A photo album is not only a personalized gift that requires effort, love, and consideration, but it can even be Christmas-photo-themed, adding a nice touch to a Christmas gift that your mom will be sure to appreciate and cherish! As an alternative, you could also have one large family portrait blown up and framed.”

“Most mothers love an aromatic living room. But why would you stick to the usual scented candles? These last months, aroma diffusers have become a worldwide hype, and receiving one as a gift certainly will surprise your mother. They come in all shapes and sizes, but the water drop shape is the one most sought-after. For example, Saje has great diffusers available.

Revive the good old ’70s with macrame kits. With macrame kits, you can bond with your mother while tying intricate knots. You can create plant hangers, window and wall decorations, or something as simple as a keychain. But I would recommend halving a coconut and constructing a hanging storage ornament, just the way they used to do in the ’70s.”

“The best gift moms could receive (working or stay at home) is the gift of self-care. There are many subscription boxes that provide tons of self-care items at a fraction of the cost.

Since we tend to put our families first, our own self-care ends up coming in last when it shouldn’t be the case. A little reminder via gift would go a long way.”

“The best Christmas gifts for mom strike a perfect balance between self-care and indulgence. To that end, we’d recommend high-end medical-grade skincare products for the mom who truly deserves to feel as amazing on the outside as she is on the inside.

These advanced products take skincare to the next level, with ingredients that make a lasting and substantial impact on facial skin that’s dry, damaged, or otherwise impacted by environmental stressors and the natural processes of aging.

Start with an essential hyaluronic acid product. Hyaluronic acid has properties that provide multiple layers of moisture, minimizing fine lines and plumping up the appearance of skin for a naturally youthful appearance. Add cleansers, moisturizers, and other highly targeted medical-grade skincare products to create a customized luxury skincare routine she’ll absolutely love.”

We also have many authentic traditional organic spice blends, which can remind mom of her own mother’s cooking when she was growing up. We’ve heard feedback that those are big hits, too.”

Whether you are buying expensive gifts or making a personalised gift at home. All mums around the world deserve to be spoiled this Christmas and receive the best mum gifts from the kids! This will create a great collection of memories for your mum to feel appreciated this festive season. So grab your wallets and let’s show you the best gifts for mom!
