The Holiday Gift Guide For Moms!

The Holiday Gift Guide For Moms!

Yep. It's that time again, and whether you're a mom or you're shopping for your own mother, we seem to be the hardest ones to shop for! (Which is weird because we can think of a hundred things we'd buy for ourselves am I right?!) but alas, you're sitting there thinking.. what the heck do I get my mom? And maybe your husband is sitting there thinking (probably like 3 days before Christmas..) what do I get my wife?! So I've taken out some of the stress and made up this gift guide for moms! I've compiled 5 great gifts under 3 different price ranges! Hope it helps! 


  • A Question A Day journal. $12

I actually have one of these and I have loved it! It asks me a different question a day about my life and my kids and it has slots for 5 years, I think it's an easy way to journal and a fun keepsake for the kids! Get yours on Amazon

  • Chatbooks photo album $10+ 

I made up one of these with our Instagram photos and gave them to my mom and grandma and they seriously loved it so much! They just love pictures of our kids since they don't see them very often. It was a personal and easy gift that I think will be a new tradition! Get yours started here

  • Coffee is Magical Mug $4

I love this mug! Such a good price and looks so sleek! Pair it with a pack of her favorite coffee or a Starbucks gift card for a simple and affordable gift! Get it here 

  • Mama shirt $13-$20

I think these shirts are so cute and moms love them too! There's tons of different styles out there so I'm sure you can find one that fits the mama in your life! I personally love these two on Etsy! Shop here and here

  • Essential Oil diffuser necklace $8* 

Does your mom or wife love essential oils?? This company has tons of pretty and unique ways to use your oils! I love this necklace and this bracelet!  *And if you hurry, they are having a crazy good sale so you could get both for under $20!! 


  • Alex & Ani bracelet $28+

These bracelets are so pretty and on trend. They can be worn as a single or stacked with many! I love the symbols and personalization you can do with these and they are very affordable! Check them out here

These eyeshadows are so pretty and highly pigmented, the mom in your life will love them! Have a hard time choosing colors? The prebuilt palettes are a perfect solution! Shop them here 

  • Last Name wall decor $30+ 

I know you've seen these all over and you probably want one yourself! I secretly have been dying for one too! (Anyone wanna drop a hint to my husband?!) I love this style but I know you can find one to fit the style for the mom in your life too! Shop my fav here

Have a mom or wife who loves music or even travels a lot? Trust me, these things are life changing! My husband recently got some (not these exact ones) and they really do work! He loves to use them on plane rides and I love listening to music on them! Plus these ones are really sleek and pretty! 

  • Personal Massage or Mini Spa Day $50+ 

I feel like this pops up on a lot of gift guides but it's hardly ever given! I'm not sure why because it really is an amazing gift! Make a spa day date and go with your mom or send your well deserving wife on a relaxing day by herself! Almost all spas offer great deals during the holidays so shop soon! 

  • Large Wall Quote $50+ 

I am obsessed with large wall art that is handmade and personalized with a quote that really resonates with you. Trust me that something like this would for sure be your mom or wife's favorite gift. Whether she's an avid reader, religious, or simply loves uplifting words in the home, it's a perfect gift! Here are a few of my faves from Etsy.. shop here and here and here!
