2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Mom

2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Mom


My husband has probably asked me a dozen times over the last month what I want for Christmas. The truth is there’s just not much I want or need, and trying to come up with gift ideas for him — because he loves giving Christmas gifts — was a bit stressful.

If you’re finding yourself on either side of that equation — unsure what to ask for or waiting and waiting for gift ideas and not getting any — here are some of my favorites that are sure to be a hit!

I’ve always had a thing for bags, and Gigi Hill Bags are among my newest favorites. With a unique pocket system to ensure there is a pocket for everything and high-quality, cleanable and durable fabric, these are sure to be a favorite for the mom in your life!
 

I’ve had the privilege of working with the team at Invite.l over the past year, and I am impressed by everything they do. From their stylish planners to their handy bag-in-a-bags, everything they sell proves that it’s possible to have both form and function. How about a new planner for 2012?
 

Create beautiful vinyl, paper and fabric designs with the Silhouette CAMEO digital cutter! From decor to fashion to paper crafts, the Silhouette is a DIY-ers dream machine!
 

Turn mom’s favorite photo into a gallery-quality canvas, a gift she’s sure to love! MyPix2Canvas provides superior quality & design with a guarantee that you’ll love your canvas. (Order by 12/10 for Christmas delivery!)
 

Magazine subscriptions make a great gift, and you can pick one up for less through Discount Mags! For a special presentation, purchase this month’s issue of the magazine your gifting from the newstand, create a certificate with details of the subscription and wrap both in a shirt box!
 

For the mom who has everything, how about a pair of these J. Crew Glittens? There’s nothing worse than having to take your gloves or mittens off in the cold to zip a jacket, tie a shoe or fumble with the car keys, and with glittens you don’t have to take them all the way off; you can just fold back the top!
 

Invite mom to put up her feet and relax with a book and warm cuppa with this Sunbeam Heated Throw. She’ll be extra toasty wrapped up in this fleece blanket with three temperature settings!
 

I love almost all of The Vintage Pearl’s designs, and this Come Fly with Me Necklace is my current favorite…or at least one of them. What a sweet way to celebrate your love! You’ll also find plenty of “mommy necklace” designs as well as monograms, bracelets and more.
 

The Help is the best movie I’ve seen in a long time, and although we rarely buy DVDs anymore, this is one that I’d love to add to our collection…and I think most people who’ve seen it would agree. It would make a great girls’ night in movie!
