Buying gifts for moms might be a little intimidating. This is especially true when trying to think of Christmas gifts for mom because we all want them to feel special.
AND we definitely don’t want them to think their gift was thought of last minute.
Whoever you may be reading this blog post (man, woman, wife, husband, adult child, or alien) I have the best list of Christmas gifts for mom!
What do moms really want for Christmas?
Well there’s no easy answer to that. But I do know that a lot of my mom friends are sleep deprived and would probably want extra sleep for Christmas (kidding, but not kidding!).
Some moms would appreciate time away from their chaotic routine which means you could schedule a spa day!
Or other moms could care less about anything other than spending time with their loved ones. But don’t leave mom empty handed on Christmas Day. Keep reading!
Personalized Christmas Gifts For Mom
I’ll start off with the more meaningful gift ideas for mom.
Some of my favorite gifts I’ve ever received were personalized gifts. I feel like they have so much meaning because the person gifting it to me really thought about me.
My husband has gifted me several personalized gifts, gifted from our daughter to me for different holidays and special occasions like a happy 28th birthday mom onesie from Etsy.
Etsy is my go to for personalized Christmas gifts for mom!
A personalized birthstone ring with all of the kids’ birthstones on it would be so beautiful. The only tricky part would be trying to find out the mom’s ring size without ruining the surprise.
Another great jewelry gift idea for Christmas for moms is a personalized initial pendant necklace with each of the children’s initials and birthdates.
Personalized Cutting Board
What’s a sweeter gift than a personalized cutting board for the mom that spends probably too much time in the kitchen to feed the family.
Personalized Throw Blanket
You can’t go wrong gifting a personalized throw blanket with a collection of family photos and special memories on a fuzzy, comfortable blanket.
Family Names Sign
A personalized family names sign with each member of the family would be a beautiful gift showcasing the family mom has built.
A woman can’t have too many cups. Whether it’s a personalized tumbler, personalized coffee mug, or etched glass, it’s one of the easiest personalized Christmas gifts for mom. And it’s a functional gift!
This might be a better option than the birthstone ring if you’re trying to keep your Christmas gift a secret from your mom. You don’t have to worry about figuring out mom’s ring size when getting a personalized birthstone bracelet!
If your mom is a scrapbooker, then you’ll want to get her a custom scrapbook personalized specifically for her. Don’t forget to grab scrapbook stickers to go along with her book! I feel like scrapbooks are the most creative gift ideas for moms because you can a ton of different stickers and scrapbook supplies.
A personalized apron with your mom’s name on it would make a beautiful Christmas gift that she could wear every day she’s in the kitchen.
Personalized Pocket Mirror
Moms are always on the go and in a hurry. And something that may make them feel more put together is a personalized pocket mirror.
Not one where you type up, but handwritten! In this day and age where texting has become one of our main ways of communication, writing a heartfelt handwritten letter expressing your appreciation would be memorable.
Other Christmas Gifts For Mom
You don’t necessarily have to get a mom a personalized Christmas gift to let her know she is special. Nor do you really have to get her an expensive gift either.
But there’s something extra special about unwrapping gifts on Christmas Day. My husband and I prioritize at least one gift for each other every year so that we can “open” something.
Now let’s talk about other possible Christmas gifts for mom ranging in prices.
Hot Brush Tool
Like I mentioned earlier, mom is probably always on the go, don’t have the extra time to curl their hair, or even get their hair done. A hot brush tool will give them a fresh blowout look as if they just stepped out of the hair salon.
An Apple Watch Series 9 is a big gift and well-worth it too! She can use it to call, text, use the GPS, and other cellular options right from her watch. Or you could always get an older model for almost half the price.
Kitchen Aid Mixer
Your mom might be the type that loves baking or cooking in general. You can’t go wrong with the Kitchen Aid Tilt-Head Stand Mixer.
Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine
Every mom drinks coffee (or I should say most moms). Because how else would we survive the day? Make her the happiest and most energetic mom with this bad boy Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine. Hinting this one big time to my husband!
I love my Yeti cups. And just about everyone I know who owns a Yeti product loves it.
Everyone is raving about Stanley Cups these days so that might be the move. They’re always being sold out!
Some of the best quality sunglasses I’ve ever had were Ray-Ban sunglasses. They’re a little pricey because they do a great job protecting the eyes.
Local Day Spa Gift Card
People say gift cards don’t make good gifts for moms. But I don’t think any mom would disagree with a local day spa gift card.
And if you don’t live close to a day spa or have access to a good one in town, then why not bring the day spa to mom. A heated foot massager that does everything a person could do but better would make one of the most perfect Christmas gifts for mom.
There are so many different face masks out there but my favorite is the facial face mask sheets that lay over your face since it’s mess-free. And if your mom already owns 5 too many of these facial mask sheets, then how about you amplify her at-home facial experience with a facial steamer to help open up her pores.
Plant or Flower
If mom is a gardener, another plant baby or even gardening supplies would make the perfect Christmas gift.
