Christmas is just around the corner, and unless you’re one of the lucky ones who has finished your shopping, you may be wondering what to get the moms in your life. Don’t let the holiday gift shopping blues set in. I’m here to help!
I’ve been scouring the Interwebs for the most fabulous and fashionable gift ideas for moms. Whether it’s your own mother, your sister, your daughter or your best friend, you’re sure to find something for her on this list.
10 Stylish Holiday Gift Ideas for Moms
1. Marc Jacobs Pouch in Gunmetal
Part of the Target + Neiman Marcus holiday gift collection, this sleek zip-top, clutch bag is the perfect accessory for every holiday party this season.
“The sonic frequency moves Clarisonic’s soft, gentle brush back and forth at more than 300 times per second, thoroughly clearing pores and skin’s surface.” I can attest that the Clarisonic improves my skin’s texture, reduces breakouts and generally makes it softer and prettier. The Mia is the travel sized version of the original Clarisonic skin cleansing system.
Everyone with a smart phone needs a pair of tech gloves. These cozy cashmere knit gloves with tech-compatible tips allow you to use your touch-screen device while keeping your hands warm and dry.
Get it while you can! Most are sold out. This medium weight, original signature scarf with accent stripes was handmade by a woman in Kenya named Bezuayhu. Because of fashionABLE, she was able to get out of her life of prostitution and go to work making scarves. This is a great way to support a good cause while shopping for the holidays!
“This small yet versatile bag allows you to carry a mirrorless camera system, a point and shoot camera, or a DSLR camera with lens attached.” Kelly Moore makes the most stylish, functional camera bags around, and her new Riva is the smallest one yet. I love how it has a zipper compartment for wallet stuff, and can transition to an everyday bag when you want.
6. UGG Slippers
If you really want to pamper her, get her a pair of UGG slippers. This is another item that I personally own and love. In fact, I am on my 2nd pair. I wear them whenever I’m in the house during the wintertime. (I may have even worn them to the bus stop once or twice . . . shhhh . . . don’t tell.) They are so cozy and comfy, she’ll never want to take them off.
I live by my momAgenda! This is THE BEST desktop calendar for a busy mom, hands down. It has space for your daily appointments as well as a separate box for each child (up to 4) and a space for meal planning as well. Plus, notes on the side of each weekly view. Every mom needs one of these.
8. luxe earrings by Studio Jewel
My friend Lisa makes the most gorgeous eco-friendly artisan jewelry. I seriously want to be her when I grow up. These luxe gold and silver drop earrings are the perfect accessory for any outfit and go as well with jeans as they do with a cocktail dress. These are just an example of the lovely pieces she has available in her shop. If you want to give the mom in your life something unique and personal, you’ll definitely want to spend some time perusing Studio Jewel.
I think these are great. In fact, I have one. I won it in a White Elephant Gift Exchange a few years ago, and I think it’s so fun to put out with cheese and crackers for company. It’s a whimsical gift that is perfect for the mom in your life who enjoys entertaining.
Noonday is another company that allows you the opportunity to shop with a purpose. There are so many fabulous gift ideas at Noonday, you really should check it out. I love these tea towels. “A set of three of our whimsical tea towels are perfect for your kitchen, bathroom, for gifting a bottle of wine, or even framing!” Hand printed in India, the fabric is 100% organic fair trade cotton, and the weavers receive a living wage for their work.
Which of these gift ideas is on YOUR holiday wish list!?
