Holiday Gift Guide: Mom

There’s really no way to even begin to thank moms for everything they have done and do for us, but a cute candle is a good place to start ;). I’ve put together a list of items your mom will LOVE to unwrap this Holiday season. Click on the product name to shop! Xx

For whatever reason, Moms and candles go hand in hand, so why not give her a trio so she can place them around the house (and it doesn’t hurt that she will think of you whenever she lights them!)

Not sure if it’s just my mom, but she LOVES lip products, and recently I became hooked on Bite Beauty (and I bet your mom will too.) This is a trendy yet realistic gift- something she will definitely be grateful for!

$23 Slippers

Screen Shot 2018-12-09 at 2.29.04 PMIf you’re in my boat and you’re a few hours away at school, you know the best part about coming home (especially for winter break) is lounging around with your family in sweats. My mom loves her slippers, so I don’t think you can go wrong with a cute pair for your own mama.

If your mom loves to host or entertain, she will love this bottle stopper. Not limited to wine! Great for glass water bottles, homemade salad dressing containers, and, well… wine.


$10 Monogrammed Coaster 

Screen Shot 2018-12-09 at 3.15.08 PMTheres nothing mom’s love more- keeping her house clean and personalized gifts. Hence why coasters are the perfect holiday gift! (And did you think I could see a product called “Margot” and not include it?!?)


$60 Glossier You

This perfume is so yummy and warm and truly changes from person to person. There’s something so special about mom’s signature scents, so help her add to her collection with this beautiful bottle. My mom has it and loves it (and just ordered her second bottle). Little reminder that you can get 10% off by shopping from! Oh, and when you make a Glossier purchase this month over $50 you now get a free pocket mirror if you use the code YOULOOKGREAT 🙂

$70ish Massage

I think we can all agree that our moms work their tails off for us (I know mine does!) so she is probably long overdue for a massage. Check out your local spas on Yelp for some reviews, and if you want to find a discount, I recommend using Groupon.




$149 Really Nice Sweater

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 4.12.36 PMI own a few items from Mott & Bow and am OBSESSED. It is such incredible quality and I swear your Mom will LIVE in their pieces. It is a little pricey, but for good quality cashmere, this is a steal.


$96 Cozy Robe

Keeping on the cozy trend, you can’t go wrong with robes. Functional but cute, your mom will love this and will be so happy every morning when she puts it on to go downstairs to make her coffee.


$80+ Lat & Lo Bracelet

I got my mom this gift two years ago (and lets just say there were some waterworks on both of our ends). I picked a location that has always been special to us and she has worn the bracelet almost every day (really amazing quality!).


$250 Designer Heart Purse

Screen Shot 2018-12-09 at 2.33.18 PMIf you feel like splurging, nothing says I LOVE YOU more than this adorable heart purse. While she’s rocking it around town, she will be thinking of you (and will have you to thank when she gets an endless amount of compliments). The gift that keeps on giving!



Time Together

When it comes down to it, the thing your mom probably wants the most is to just spend time with you one on one doing something fun. Make a plan and write her a little note that she can “open”. Here are some ideas:

  • Museums
  • Local Gardens (weather permitting)
  • Visiting a new attraction around your town
  • Going into the closest city and spend the day walking around the park

Framing Pictures

Your parents did the work taking pictures of you when you were younger, so now is time to give back by digging up those old pictures and framing them. Whether your mom puts it near her bed, on her desk at work, or hangs it up in the house, it will make her so happy to see it all the time.


And that’s a wrap! (pun. intended.) Although all these gifts are lovely, no pressure if you feel that you can’t afford them- your mom will just appreciate your company and help around the house during the holiday season. If you have any more ideas, comment them down below!
