5 Perfect (and Unique!) Christmas Gifts for Your Mom

Christmas is right around the corner (I can’t wait!) and it’s time to think about what to get the leading lady in your life. Mom’s are the best…but what do they really want for Christmas?

I’ve gathered some perfect Christmas gift ideas for mothers in this post. These gift ideas are tried and true (my mom is usually pretty hard to buy for!) These gift ideas also won’t break the bank, even though mommas deserve the whole world 😉

Need ideas for what to get a college-aged girl for Christmas? Check out my guide here.

5 Perfect Christmas Gifts for Your Mom

1. Cozy Flannel Pajamas

You really can’t go wrong with pajamas for moms. While some pajama sets are thin and “cheap-feeling”, a good pair of flannel pajamas go a long way.

My favorite brands to buy for my mom are Pajama Salvage, Victoria’s Secret, or L.L. Bean. You really get what you pay for with flannel pajamas, so I recommend spending a little more on a set that will last for years to come.


2. Luxury Bath and Body Care

Every mom should feel pampered from time to time! That’s why I love giving luxury bath + body care. Some of my favorite brands to buy from include Origins and LUSH.

Bath bombs are such a fun gift to give, because they come in so many colors and scents. I like shopping with the person in mind, so if I know my mom loves lavender…I’ll get her lavender soap or body wash. Extra little details like that show that you really listen and put some thought into the gift.

3. Heavy Blankets

No one can ever have enough blankets! I love buying heated/electric blankets for people (they are life-changing), or heavy, knitted blankets (like the ones you see all over Instagram!)

A few years ago, my sister bought my mom an electric blanket and she still uses it to this day! It’s so nice and snuggly to use when watching TV in bed or the living room.

4. Personalized Kitchen Accessories

One of my favorite gifts I’ve ever given my mom was a personalized cutting board. It was something unexpected, and my mom uses it all the time, even as a cheese board when we have company over (it gets lots of compliments!)

My mom has also received a personalized/engraved pie pan, and it’s really special to her. Think about what your mom likes to cook/bake, and get her name put on it! Plus, she’ll never lose it 😉

5. Artisan Coffee/Tea

Who doesn’t love coffee? Well, actually, my mom 😂 She’s more of a tea drinker, but both coffee and tea make a great gift. I like to splurge on more small-batch and artisan roasts/blends for Christmas gifts. Skip the Starbucks gift card this year, and show her that you thought outside the box.

This idea is really perfect for anyone in your life, as almost everyone likes either coffee or tea! Another gift idea to pair with this is a french-press or tea pot. I love the blooming tea (pictured to the left!)

What is the best gift you have ever given before? I would love to know!
