20 Amazing Gift Ideas For Mom

family union suits

If you are going to get one for mom you may as well get one for the whole family! These cute PJs from Little Blue House are some of my favorite Christmas gifts for mom. The many moose, bear, and ski prints make for a perfect gift for the winter, but they are also perfect for summer camping trips!

These pajamas are super soft and comfortable, as they are made out of soft materials. In addition to the cute prints the pajamas have a faux bum flap, snap closure, and are machine washable. They even make them in kids sizing for the little siblings in your life.


A wine decanter is a great gift for any mom that enjoys a good red wine. This stylish decanter looks great on the counter, drip-free pour, easy to clean, and it’s made from crystal. This is a high-quality kitchen product for an affordable price at under $50.

Glo Science Teeth Whitening

Welcome to the world of at-home teeth whitening! I’m not saying your mom has yellow teeth, but these easy to use glo lit kits are great for anyone who just wants to get their teeth even a shade whiter.

We just got our first kits and love them! In just two days we can already see a difference. We are big coffee drinkers so love having something easy to use at the house that helps get rid of stains. These kits use patented heat and light acceleration technology that doesn’t hurt sensitive teeth. To get the best results you only need to dedicate between 10-24 minutes a day.

It’s not the cheapest gift idea for mom on this list, however, if you are looking to spend a little bit more your mom will love this gift.

Salty Crush Cardigan

My favorite new cardigan is made by Salty Crush, a fantastic brand that makes clothing that looks great on everyone. I love their dresses, and have just recently found out about their cardigans.

This cream cardigan is a must have for mom and daughter to get cozy in. From lounging at home to hitting the snowy streets this cardigan looks great wherever. It’s surprisingly soft to touch with cable knit. It looks great with jeans and a pair of Blundestones!

Silk Eye Mask

A cute and comfortable eye mask means mom will get plenty of shut-eye. The best option for eye masks is a silk one as cotton pulls moisture and oils away from the skin. This cute eye mask is a great option at only $20.


Birkenstock Arizona Best Travel Sandals

Birkenstocks have long been associated with hippy culture and free-living ideology, so naturally, they would make phenomenal a great casual gift for mom! However, Birkenstock Mayaris is much more than a name. They feature the patented cork footbed that contours to the foot and provides amazing arch support and comfort.

Filson Field Flannel Shirt

The Field Flannel Shirt is a classic staple that’s comfortable, stylish, and practical. It’s perfect for apple picking, gardening, running errands, or out for a hike in the mountains.

C.O. Bigelow Cold and Flu Soak

Give the gift of relaxation with the C.O Bigelow Colf and Flue Soak! Forget about the bath bombs that are nothing more than floral scents try out this herbal soak. It’s amazing for stress relief, aches, and pains.

Magnolia Table Cook Book

America fell in love with Joanna and Chip Gaines with their hit TV show and she has shown she can continue to deliver with her wildly popular cookbook, Magnolia Table. It made it to the top of the NY Time bestseller list and has made it to kitchens of thousands. The hardcover book is now under $20. Inside the book is beautiful photography that matches their signature style and some great recipes.

Polaroid Instant Snap Camera

Polaroid Instant Snap Camera an easy and instant camera that is fun to capture memories at the moment. This isn’t the gift for any budding photographer, but the instant polaroid photos are a ton of fun.

Shea Butter Hand Cream

This shea butter hand cream one of their most popular products for good reason. It’s amazing and mom will surely love it!

Ember Smart Mug

Mom will never have to worry about cold tea or coffee again with the Ember Mug. This smart mug is temperature-controlled and can keep a drink hot for 80 minutes off the charger or indefinitely on the charger coaster. It’s a great gift for mothers who work from home as it’s easy to get distracted and come back to a cold cup of coffee. We thought it was a little gimmicky until we gave it a try and fell in love with the product.

Tile Sticker

We’ve spent more time than we care to admit searching for our wallet, keys, or phone. It became a regular joke that we were always searching for our keys before we ran out the door. The Tile Sticker is a small Bluetooth tracker that allows mom to keep tabs on anything. Tile has been making products for a while now, but their latest offering the sticker is discreet and comes in a multipack.

Hydro Flask Bottle

We have a wide selection of water bottles, but our favorites are from Hydro Flask. The insulated aluminum water bottles keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for hours.

It doesn’t just do a good job at this, it does an excellent job and we’ve often enjoyed piping hot tea on cold morning hours after making it. As a big plus, aluminum is one of the best materials to recycle after the bottle has lived its very long life.

Ethique Toiletries


Ethique mission is to reduce plastic waste and remove harmful chemicals from the bathroom. They offer sustainable, ethical sources, and natural products. Which means it’s better for the planet and for mom. One of the best products is the Lavender and Mint Bodywash Bar.


You’ve already come across Allbirds on the internet. They’ve billed themselves as the most comfortable shoes in the world, made to fight odor, be worn without socks, and generally handle the demands of travel exceptionally. Those are all some tall claims – I knew I had to have some.

The feeling of wearing them is best compared to wearing a wool sweater – comfortable and cozy. They are so soft and will be our new all-around travel shoes. Allbirds try their best to source sustainable materials for their shoes, which we love. The style is also great, and they look even better in person than online with high-quality details.

Wireless Headphones

I listen to music and podcasts all the time when I travel. A pair of wireless headphones has made travel so much more enjoyable. While I’ve tried several different headphones varieties over the years Sennheiser and Bose have made some of my favorites.

For the active user, the CX685 is a great earbud as they’re washable, remain in your ear, and sound great. Check out our travel music playlist for more!

Amazon Kindle

Kindle For Road Trip Essential

The Kindle transformed the way we read books and now accounts for more than 50% of all book sales in the U.S. It’s the most convenient piece of technology for travelers. The Kindle takes up less space than a regular book and can store thousands.

We also love the non-backlit screen as it’s easy on our eyes and not like reading on an LCD screen. We recommend opting for the standard Kindle Paperwhite over the Fire. However, if you’re looking for a reasonably priced tablet it’s hard to argue with the appeal of the Kindle Fire.

Essential Oil Diffuser

Instead of candles or incense consider the gift of an essential oil diffuser – it is the perfect gift idea for young moms! There is a slew of diffusers on Amazon these days and they’ve now dropped in price to less than $20. The VicTsing Diffuser actually sits on my desk and I love it for the timer, style, ease of use, and sleek LED ring.

Pink Desk Mat

With more Moms working from home these days make the desk a little more homey with a practical and cute desk mat.

Japanese House Shoes

In almost all of Asia, it’s considered rude to wear shoes in the house so slippers and sandals are massive. Give these Japanese House Shoes that are super cozy and reversible.
