2. Jewelry is always a fun way to go when it comes to mom gifts.  A little bling can truly brighten up her day.  You could for a fun set of earrings or even a monogrammed necklace for the special mom in your life.

3.  Moms need to relax at the end of a hard day.  Candles are always nice, but make sure to pair them up as a gift set with a nice Bath Bomb or some Himalayan Bath and Body salts. 

4.  For after she takes those relaxing baths, make sure to get her a comfy robe!  A great way to make it feel more thoughtful is by getting her a Monogramed Plush Spa Robe.

5.  Another great idea for a gift for mom is by getting her a gift card to a spa!  Give her the gift of relaxation that she gets the option to pick which service she needs.  I love Spa Finder because of the amount of choices they offer.  If you are going to buy a gift card, use this link to take 10% off all gift card orders of $25 or more using promo code TAKE10 on!

Fashion Gifts for Moms

6.  All moms want to be dressed nice.  We just don’t always have time to go shopping for ourselves.  Even when we do, it is hard to pick out clothes with a toddler attached to our leg!  A great way to help her out is give her the gift of a stylist.  Don’t worry, it is much easier than you think!  Just buy her a gift card to Stitch Fix.

7.  Leggings are all the craze these days.  They are comfy and can be used in many different styles.  One way to make leggings a more thoughtful gift is by selecting a pair of Cute Leggings designed by Artists.  One of my favorite only stores is Society6.  They carry some of the cutest leggings that you just can’t get in stores!

8.  Sunglasses are not just a summer time gift.  The sun is out year round, so a cute pair of high quality shade is always a plus!  If the mom on your list normally wears prescription glasses, buying sunglasses isn’t a normal option.  If you can find out her prescription, ordering her a pair of  Prescription Sunglasses will absolutely make her day!

9.  Moms carry so much stuff around!  Between diapers, toys, wallets, and the such, our bags are a necessary tool to have.  Make that bag something special, and get her a Personalized Tote Bag to carry around in style!


Household Gifts for Moms

10.  No matter if she is a working mom, stay at home mom, or a work at home mom, chances are she is exhausted!  Help her get a yummy boost of energy by buying her a Keurig Coffee Maker.

11.  Talking about energy, another great gift that will put some positive energy into the home is a Himalayan Salt Lamp.  They have a ton of natural benefits like cleaning the air, helping with allergens, and much more.   If you are looking into getting multiple, check out this 4 piece Salt Lamp Bundle.

12.  One thing that takes up a ton of energy out of the busy mom is cleaning!  Make her day by creating a cute little coupon book that includes time that you will clean her house for her.  If that’s not your cup a tea, then you could always help her everyday by getting her an iRoomba.  These little robot vacuums are well worth it!

13.  Another household device that not only has health benefit, but makes the house smell amazing, is an oil diffuser.  Make sure to get her one that comes with oils already like this Aromatherapy Essential Oil and Diffuser Set.


Gifts for Moms that Make the day a Little Better

14.  Though we’d love every night to relax in a nice hot bath, it doesn’t always (rarely!) happen that way.  Most of the time, it’s a quick shower if your lucky.  Singing in the shower is one way to get in the better mood, so help her out by getting  her a great quality Bluetooth Waterproof Shower Speaker Bluetooth.

15.   If you are looking for a gift to help her enjoy some down time, how about the chance to curl up on the couch with a great read!  Nothing is more fun than curling up in a blanket with good book at the end of a hard day!  Get her a magazine subscriptions  to her favorite magazine and make her a cute little card to let her know.  Then, get a her a beautiful  artist designed throw blanket.  Place the card on the blanket, and wrap it with a ribbon for a great gift!

16.  For the mom that is always on the go, get her a gift that she will definitely use like these Stylish Insulated Water Bottles.  These bottles keep water nice and cold much longer, and they are very cute!

Gifts for Moms that love the Kitchen

17.  Not every mom loves to cook, but for the moms that do, there are a ton of fun gifts to get her.  My favorite are the aprons made by Flirty Aprons. These aprons range from stylish and pin-up to just plain cute and fun!

18.  Another great way to make the kitchen fun is by getting her some flirty kitchens utensils and cookbooks.  There are tons of cookbooks to choose from, but my favorite is Ree Drummonds Come n’ Get it cookbook.  It is full of amazing recipes, and the book itself looks awesome!

19.  If the mom on your list is a pizza fan, help her up her pie making skills by getting her Charcoal Grill Kettle Pizza kit.  The results are amazing, and they are perfect for any pizza lover!

20. If you are looking for something extra special gift that she will use all the time, check out these  Personalized Cutting Boards.  They are so cute, that she can leave it out on the counter top all the time!

Tech Gifts for Moms

21. For the mom who loves technology, the  Amazon Echo is the perfect gift!  She will get a ton of use out of it by  playing music, asking the weather, ordering Starbucks, or playing trivia! Make sure you give her the Gift of Amazon Prime  with it!

22. Another great gift for that techy mom in your life is a new tablet for reading and watching tv in any room.  Pair that up with a year of kindle unlimited so she can read as much as she wants! Join Amazon Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial

23.  One of my favorite electronic makes a ton of noise!  Not the kind you might think of though.   Marpac Noise machines help you relax and drown out the chaos  by playing calming, white noise.

24.  Wearable technology is another fun gift for moms! Get her a new fitbit or smart watch to help her see just how many calories she burns chasing the kids down!  You can also get her a Tile or two to help track down the keys the kids hide in the couch!

25.  For the ultimate tech gift for mom, get her a pair of VR goggles to pair with her phone!  These games are so fun, and not something people think to ask for on the list!  There are tons of games, meditation, and trivia games that go with VR goggles for endless fun!
