I think we can all agree that shopping for our moms is no easy task! What she really needs is a vacation and a day on the couch binge watching her favorite show. Unfortunately, I cannot give our mothers their dream day off! But I can give you a gift guide of things our moms need and want for Christmas!
1.Pajamas Don’t underestimate the gift of pajamas! I go to TJ Maxx and pick up new pajamas for my mom every year. It is something that moms may not think they need, but wearing dads shirt to bed and old yoga pants can be replaced with a cozy, matching set of Ralph Lauren pajamas!
2.Socks Funny socks, fuzzy socks, boring socks, dollar bin from Target socks… doesn’t matter! But I guarantee that those socks will be on her feet by the end of the day!
3.Throw Blanket Okay, so this may be a present for myself as well! But whenever we are lounging on the couch I feel like we are always fighting over blankets. We will have a million blankets in a basket, but we always fight over the same one! Now mom can have her *own* blanket (until she is not looking!).
4. Williams Sonoma They always have great kitchen towels, soap sets, oven mitts, and other kitchen items that your mom would love in her kitchen. Did I mention they offer free gift wrapping?!? I always have a pineapple pattern present under the tree for mom!
5.Luxury Face Products My mom is always making excuses on not buying an expensive face cream because she can buy other more useful things for the family instead. Try to get your mom something she has been looking at, but couldn’t justify buying herself. My mom is a big fan of the Lancome products so I grab a gift set from Macy’s every year to give her.
6.Perfume I buy my mom a scent for the year for Christmas. I am a big fan of Calvin Klein perfume, but the Lancome La Vie Est Belle scent is my current favorite. Shopping Trick: Don’t buy the gift set, but just get the perfume alone instead. When it is in the gift set, the perfume is small and you pay for the packaging. TJ Maxx and Marshalls have perfumes that doesn’t have the bells and whistles making it more affordable.
7.Dry Shampoo My mom discovered the magic of dry shampoo after using mine one day. And now I always find it goes missing! If there is something that your mom *always* borrows, get one just for her!
8. Purse I recently got my mom a wallet for her birthday in November, and what she does not know is that a matching purse is on the way! My mom is someone who will use a purse until it falls apart! Before leaving for one of her girls getaway weekend, my mom texted me asking if she could raid my closet for a suitcase and purse. It’s something she needs, but moms don’t often splurge on themselves!
9. Bite Beauty I recently received some free lipsticks from Bite Beauty to review from Influenster and Sephora. Since the day they have arrived, my mom has been trying to take one that I may not like that much. Instead of hiding my lipsticks, I thought she could get her own! Sephora has a great Bite Beauty lip kit with a variety of colors to try.
