10 Unique Gift Ideas Mom Will Actually Love
Moms are the best aren’t they? And I don’t say that just because I’m a mom, but because I’ve had a mom. We know we can give the kids a paper towel roll and an empty tissue box and they will be happy. But Mom? She deserves the best. Here I’m sharing the 10 best gifts for mom that she’s sure to love.

For the Mom Who Likes to Cook
This Zavor LUX LCD 6 Quart Multicooker is going to free up so much time for your mom, she’s going to call you to talk about it! It is a slow cooker, a pressure cooker, a rice cooker, a yogurt maker, and a perfectly boiled egg cooker – all in one. Give her this and you’ll want to visit a lot more so you can eat her delicious meals (like this amazing chili or yummy pulled pork)!
Gifts For the Mom Who Likes to Work Out
You want your mom to be healthy and live as long as possible, right? So why not help her stay fit with some awesome new fitness apparel?
A basket full of new workout clothes from HYLETE is just what your mom needs to keep her motivated while she plows through her exercise routine. HYLETE’s entire line of clothing is amazing quality and super comfortable, so you can’t go wrong with any choice. But if you want a few recommendations, I’d get the Nimbus high waist tight, the Radius shorts, and the Era sports bra. Then join mom for an awesome workout!
Gifts For the Mom Who Likes Fashion
Moms tend to reach for the quick and easy clothes all too often. Old t-shirts, sweats and pajamas. We are efficient and comfortable while we take care of everything and everyone.
Give a gift for mom that she might not choose for herself. Remind her that she’s still a person underneath all the spit-up and dirty laundry. This slip dress from Free People comes in a short or maxi style and can be worn alone for a sexy look or layered under a denim jacket for a more casual vibe.
And for my Colorado readers (or anyone who is sensitive to the cold), the Orion Parka from OROS is the warmest thing I’ve ever worn. It is insulated with the same tech that NASA uses to insulate space shuttles – which means total warmth without feeling like a puffy marshmallow!
There’s a reason Forbes called it the warmest jacket on Earth. (For reference I was wearing that little black dress up there under this coat, and it felt like I was totally comfortable even though it was 40 degrees and cloudy/windy. And I haaaate being cold.) Give this coat to your mom and she will never want another coat again.
Before Mom steps out for the day, she will want to put the finishing touches on her face. This lip gloss set from Babo Botanicals is the perfect gift for mom that will hydrate her lips while adding a bit of color and shine. Mom’s smile will be a bit brighter knowing that she’s dressing up her lips without dyes or yucky ingredients.
For the Mom Who Needs to Relax
Is your mom still using the bath towels she had when you were in elementary school? If so, surprise her with a new set of spa quality bath linens. Ultra-soft and extra-absorbent, the Hotel Collection Ultimate MicroCotton® bath towel collection will make her bath feel extra luxurious.
These towels are crafted to be safe for use on sensitive skin, and are made in a environmentally friendly facility as well! Opt for a neutral tone or a pure white to ensure her new soft towels match her decor.
Add to the bundle of fluffy towels with a relaxing basket of chamomile lemon tea and honey. Three Peaks Manuka Honey is pure and authentic, the most luxurious honey from New Zealand. Not only is it a delicious natural sweetener, but it also promotes digestive health, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and can even be applied topically for skin healing and health.
Mom will improve her wellness while also improving the taste of her tea, and will thank you with every sip. (You can use my friends and family coupon code on Amazon to get 20% off a 250g jar – just enter 20OFF250 at checkout!)
If mom isn’t a tea drinker, why not celebrate the season and all that she’s done for you? Put together a basket of goodies and bubbles – some tasty chocolates, snacks, and Mionetto prosecco. Then help mom put up her feet while you arrange a plate and pour her a glass.
Gifts For the Mom Who Loves to Shop
As a mom, I think I’m qualified to say this – We absolutely love gift cards. Really. Just give us a gift card. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer gift for mom. We are happy to go shopping and then we can show you the amazing thing we bought (likely on sale!).
And if you’re that kid who waits until the last minute to think of getting a gift, just go to giftcards.com and pick one. You don’t even have to leave your house! Your mom will smile and thank you, and if you’re lucky she may buy something for you with it!
If there are grandkids in her life, chances are she loves any opportunity to brag about them. Make Mom some custom reusable shopping bags with photos of her precious little sweeties on them. She may hold up the line at the supermarket, but she won’t notice because she’ll be too busy showing the cashier the little cuties!
I hope this list helped you to find something your mom will love this year! Which gift will you be giving her? Is there something I should add in for next year?
