The season of giving is here, and it’s one of those times we love to give back to people who have been there for us throughout the year. Mothers are great friends and companions. Our mothers go above and beyond for us.
So, as you plan your holiday gifting, here are five Christmas gift ideas for mom.
I think we all know diamonds are a girl’s best friend so trust me when I say you can never go wrong with jewelry. Now obviously the jewelry doesn’t have to be diamonds, but one of the reasons why jewelry is a good gift is because of its versatility. There is something for everyone whether it’s simple or something over the top.
You can also add personal touches to jewelry. For example; a lovely quote about your mum, initials, special dates/years, and pictures. Jewelry is the kind of gift that will have your mum reminded of how much she is loved every time she wears it, which is what we all want for our moms.
- Dining ware or kitchen gadget
This is a good gift idea if your mum loves to cook or collect different dining ware. Kitchen gadgets make cooking easier and faster, and will make her enjoy her time in the kitchen even more.
When it comes to dining ware, this might be the perfect gift especially if your mum is a collector. With the lots of food that’s cooked during the festive season, I’m sure she’ll love showing these off and telling her friends how much joy you bring to her.
- Tech gadgets
Now if your mum is the cool type, tech gadgets are a good choice, but even if she isn’t these can still be good gifts. Technology is everywhere and a part of everything we do.
Technology makes life easier and faster and we all know how our moms are always doing one million things at once. Why not invest in a gadget that can simplify one of those a million things for her, or even reduce them to a hundred thousand.
When picking out gadgets, be thoughtful. Buy those that; make her work easier, help her track her items or those that remind her to keep healthy. These could include; Apple Airtags, fitness or health trackers, smart watches, tablet, phone cases, Kindle E-reader, bluetooth speaker, to mention but a few.
- A spa day
The holiday season can be particularly stressful for moms due to having to host and take care of family and friends. They go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy and feels loved during the holidays. For this reason, an all paid spa day would make an awesome gift.
This would enable her to shade off the exhaustion from the holidays and have some time to herself as she enjoys a massage or facial. We must help our moms take care of themselves because many times they get so caught up in our lives and making sure we’re okay that they forget about themselves.
- A paid subscription
Many tend to think of paid subscriptions as unthoughtful gifts but they are a wonderful gift choice. Imagine you could get your mum that thing she loves 3 times a month for six months, or once a month for a whole year. Wouldn’t that be lovely?
And the best part is that subscriptions are not limited. If your mum loves flowers you can pay for her a flowers subscription, if she loves wine you can pay for her a wine subscription if she is into beauty and skincare get her one for that. These help her to get more of the things she loves, as well as also try new ones.
Gift-giving especially for the holidays is not about the most expensive gift but rather the most thoughtful gift. With the above gift ideas, you will be able to put a smile not only on your mum’s face but in her heart too.
Feel free to share this with your sisters and friends who would like to gift their moms this Christmas.
