How to pick the best Christmas gift for Mom
When picking a present for your Mom, remember that she won’t care how much money you’ve spent — she’ll only care about how much thought you’ve put into it. This makes buying the perfect thing for your Mom both easy and hard at the same time. Here are a few pointers:
- Go for sentimental. Maybe you can get the family together for a photo and have it framed? Or try sites like Vistaprint that let you create personalized photo gifts.
- Think about her favorite books, movies and hobbies. Is there a collector’s box set or movies or books that she’d love to have? Or, if she’s a gardener, maybe a new set of gardening tools would be perfect.
- Treat your mom to something she’d enjoy but would never treat herself to, like a spa day or manicure.
- Give her the gift of time with you! Get two tickets to a concert, movie or play and let her know you’ll be joining her.
- Ask your dad or other members of the family if there’s something she really needs or wants.
What can I get a mom who has everything?
If your mom is the type to buy whatever it is she needs or wants, Christmas shopping for her can be a challenge. Try these unique gifts:
- Monthly beauty, food other other subscription box.
- Monthly flowers delivered to her door.
- Tickets to a game, show or other event.
- Gift card to her favorite restaurant and a bottle of wine.
- A weekend getaway to a destination she’ll love.
- A donation in her name to a charity she’s passionate about.
What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for moms?
Moms love DIY gifts, because they require much thought and care, yet don’t have to cost very much at all.
- Photo gifts. Most moms love anything with photos of the family, friends and pets. Make her a photo collage, photo blocks, calendar, blanket, mug or other memorable piece.
- Hand-made ice candles. Start with an empty cardboard container the size and shape of the candle you want to make. Fill it with ice cubes before pouring melted wax inside. The ice will melt, leaving you with a unique candle she’ll treasure.
- Pounded flower tote. All you need is a plain canvas tote, some fresh flower petals and a hammer to make this one-of-a-kind gift.
- DIY bath bombs. Bath bombs are all the rage right now, so why not make some of your own in your mom’s favorite colors and scents?
- Succulent magnets. Is your mom a plant lover? Drill a small hole in the tops of a few corks, then add dirt and a mini succulent, glue a magnet on the back, and you’ve got yourself a lovely gift for Mom.
