Moms wear so many different hats during the year but their workload goes into overdrive during the holidays! Coordinating holiday plans, scheduling photos with Santa, helping with classroom parties, buying gifts, playing Santa, setting up Elves in the middle of the night… you name it, they are doing it. Mom’s are the true champions of the holidays…but sometimes we don’t know how to thank them for all they do! Make sure Santa spoils them this year too with this list of can’t go wrong gifts.
Gift Ideas for Moms
Oak and Luna have some amazing custom jewelry gifts for moms. My personal favorite is this personalized paperclip chain bracelet. You can add the names of those she loves most to the bracelet so that she can take them with her wherever she goes. Giving gifts that are personal really shows that you put time and care into picking something unique out. This bracelet is one that would be worn every day!
Do you have a cozy mama in your life? You know the one! She loves a good fire, a glass of wine, and a soft blanket to curl up in after a long day. This barefoot dreams cardigan is screaming to be worn by this mama. If you have never tried barefoot dreams products you are missing out. They are ridiculously soft and comfy but still cute enough to wear out to the store. Give a mom this on Christmas morning and I bet she won’t take it off until New Years Day.
I am in love with the new Margaret Tote Bags from Poppy and Sage. If you have not heard of this company, they sell handbags that are handmade by women in Bali, Indonesia. They create jobs for the women in these communities and offer great working conditions. These bags are beautifully made, and the owners are truly some of the kindest humans I know. One of the owners, Carley Freeze, was my roommate in college and her heart in this business shows through 100%. This particular tote is big enough to fit all the mom gear while still being stylish and lovely!
I think every mom we know could use some extra special pampering. So if you are looking to give to a mom local to the Atlanta area, I have the perfect treat. Faced is a facial studio in West Midtown that offers facials that are customized to your skin but at a price point, you can afford… An esthetician deep cleans your face, offers a skin consultation, and then picks exactly how to proceed based on your specific needs. Your facial may include light therapy, exfoliation, microdermabrasion, mask application, all for a base price of 60$ for 30 minutes or 100$ for 50 minutes. Your price never changes, no matter what the esthetician adds on! You can also get monthly memberships… which would seem like a perfect holiday gift to pamper a mama in your life!
Another fantastic gift to personalize for mama’s in your life is this classic crewneck pullover. These pullovers are the perfect throw-and-go style many of us live in. You can see in the picture that they have them monogrammed with the ‘mama’ around the neck which would be perfect. If you wanted to make it a little more personal, you could always have her children’s names printed on it or her own. White Elephant designs also offer a children’s version of this same sweatshirt so mommy and me matching sets are an option too!
Ya’ll these candles smell insanely delicious. Do not let the price tag on this throw you… I can promise they are worth it and the mama you give it to will be thanking you each time she zens out to the scent! The scent I have linked is perfect to light during the holiday season but will also melt seamlessly into winter.
