Gifts For Mom Over $100 – Holiday Gift Guide 2012

Moms – they’re always doing things for us. During the holiday season this is a chance for us to do nice things for her. As you shop, be as thoughtful and creative as she always is for you. And when you find yourself still drawing a blank, we’ll have you covered!

For the snapshotter

While many of us are content with the camera on our smartphones, our moms may not be. If you’re ready to splurge consider this Canon PowerShot. Mom tip: it comes in multiple colors, so get her a unique color so she doesn’t misplace it! $129

For the mom who hangs on the patio

We love the idea of sitting outside with our mom on this Christopher Knight Home Nassau Cast Aluminum Outdoor Bistro Furniture Set. It’s the perfect mother-daughter table to discuss awful chemistry grades, funny Friday nights and how much you two miss one another. $132

For the mom who needs a new iPod

If your mom has a flip phone and a chunky, non-color ipod on its last leg, it’s about time she got the new iPod Touch. Like the camera, these come in fun colors so she can avoid mistakenly picking up your iPod before she hits the gym. And with this awesome new iPod, she can watch TV shows and movies while she works out or travels! $299

For the wrapped up lady

This is the kind of gift you’ll be borrowing from her closet. How insanely adorable is this Belted Wool Wrap Coat from Banana Republic? We love it in the red delicious color. It’s so cozy looking and the color is such a pleasant change from all the blacks and browns everyone wears all winter. $225

For the bag gal

We can’t stress enough how much moms appreciate their wardrobe being approved by their cool collegiette. Get your siblings together and split the cost of this luxurious Brompton Hobo from J.Crew. It’s big enough for all her stuff and stylish enough for you to feel like you have the coolest mom around (not that she wouldn’t be cool sans the bag!). $298
