November 14, 2022

Holiday shopping can be hard. Holiday shopping for Mom can be even harder.
After all, what do you get for the one who’s given you everything?

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your mom, step-mom, mother-in-law, or all of the above, we’ve got your back!

Check out our Top 15 Holiday Gift Ideas for Mom!

1. Flowers

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Moms and flowers go hand and hand.

The best part about sending Mom holiday flowers? Since it’s not a super common tradition, she won’t be expecting them!

Is your mom hosting a holiday party this year? Perfect. Send her a festive arrangement—the perfect finishing touch to her table! (Just think how proud she’ll be when someone asks where those beautiful blooms came from!)

2. Monthly Tea Subscription

The perfect tea lover’s gift.

Keep Mom stocked up with a monthly tea subscription. Who knows, she might just find a new favorite—bonus points!

With Simple Loose Leaf tea, you can choose four premium loose-leaf teas each month. Each subscription delivery contains seven cups of loose leaf tea (about 28 cups of tea per box) and is accompanied by “Tasting Notes” on each pouch that provides rich detail of the tea’s origins, flavor notes, best brew method, and more.These teas are thoughtfully curated with the current season and weather in mind. A great winter gift.

3. Monthly Wine Subscription

For the vino…What wine lover wouldn’t be absolutely thrilled to receive not one bottle of wine, not two, but a monthly subscription of wine?

Whether it goes for a few months or a year, wine subscriptions are perfect for amateur and professional wine drinkers alike.

Winc Monthly Wine Club is super accessible and easy. They offer hundreds of unique wines ranging from classic blends to more obscure, single-vineyard projects. When you join, you’ll take a short quiz to help narrow down your choices based on your pallet!

SommSelect Monthly Wine Club is a great intro to the wine-subscription world. SommSelect is curated by master sommelier Ian Cauble, who you may recognize from the Netflix documentarySomm Each delivery is themed which means that one box might have wines that highlight a specific growing region, and another might explore a grape variety.

4. Birth Month Flower Grow Kit

For the Mom who loves to garden, this symbolic birthday flower kit from Uncommongoods grows and changes every day, just like the person who plants it!

Birth month flowers are also a great gift for the sentimental Mom. Similar to a birthstone, a birth month flower holds a unique meaning. So swap out that birthstone necklace for a birth month flower grow kit!

Is Mom not really a huge gardener? No problem! We can help you send a unique custom-made bouquet with her birth month flower throughout!

The perfect splurge for someone you love.

7. Temperature Controlled Smart Mug

Don’t let your mom drink lukewarm coffee.

Temperature-controlled mugs may very well be one of the greatest inventions to ever grace the Earth…yes, that’s dramatic, but it’s also true.

For those of us who love our hot coffee and tea, this is a necessity.

This Ember Mug takes hot drinks to the next level. You can set an exact drinking temperature, so your coffee is never too hot or too cold, always the perfect temperature.

The Ember will then maintain your desired temperature for up to 1.5 hours.

Perfect for the on-the-go Mom! 

8. Gold Earrings

Earrings are a great go-to gift.

These Missoma earrings are a personal favorite. Choose from bold statement pieces to delicate and dainty.

9. Rainboots

Rainboots are one of those things you don’t really want to buy for yourself, but that really come in handy on a rainy or slushy winter day.

Keep Mom’s feet dry and stylish with these Classic Hunter Boots. Between the quality and simple, chic look, you really can’t go wrong.

10. Brumate

For the beer-loving, wine-chugging, seltzer sipping Mom—she absolutely needs a Brumate, no if, ands, or buts about it.

These stainless steel koozies keep your drinks of choice perfectly chilled, reduce your carbon footprint, and allow you to drink in style!

11. Cosmetic Bag

It’s sometimes hard to justify purchasing a new cosmetic bag for yourself, are we right? A brand-new makeup bag is an awesome gift for Mom!

This Feeling Ready Pouch by Lululemon makes the perfect cosmetic or travel bag. It’s soft, pillow-like, and water repellent!

12. Houseplant

There’s no doubt that plants are all the rage right now—from easy to care for, low maintenance plants like the snake plant to more fickle plants like the fiddle leaf fig.

Plants aid in motivation, keeping a clean, relaxing space, and even in clarifying the air you breathe!

If yours is not a flower-loving kind of Mom, send a fresh houseplant instead!

13. Perfume

Perfume can be a great gift as it shows the recipient how much you really know about them and what they like!

A bottle of Mom’s favorite perfume or a sampler of a few new scents you think she might like can make a wonderful gift!

The Replica Collection by Maison Margiela is a personal favorite!

Created to replicate familiar scents like Lazy Sunday Morning, Autumn Vibes, and Bubble Bath—there’s no doubt you’ll find something Mom will love.

14. Speaker

Bluetooth speakers are pretty much a must-have for anyone who likes to entertain, chill out on the back porch on a warm evening, or just generally likes to have a good time…kidding…but not really.

They’re versatile, compact, and usually waterproof! Perfect for those upcoming hot summer days by the pool!

Ultimate Ears has a great selection of quality speakers that won’t break the bank. You can even personalize them!

15. Family Print

Mom’s love family portraits, it’s in their blood.

Blow up a previously taken photo, have it framed, and wrap it up for Mom!

If your last family portrait dates back to about, oh, let’s say 10 plus years ago, schedule to have another one taken instead!
