Christmas shopping can be hard! Especially when you’re trying to find that perfect gift for your mom. Personally, I like to try and make my gifts for my mom super meaningful! So, if you’re struggling trying to find that PERFECT gift, here are some ideas! And don’t be stingy either! Some gifts can be pricy, but our moms deserve the world! 


Photo Blanket/Fuzzy Blanket 

This is one of the pricier gifts that you can give your mom. But it is also probably one of the most loved! Shutterfly does an amazing job printing photos onto blankets! I did one for my mom with a photo of my hound dog on it! She absolutely LOVED it! You can do any picture you would like. And if you don’t want an expensive blanket, you can always do one that isn’t a photo blanket!

Teddy Bear 

Now, BEAR with me on this one! Get it? BEAR with me? No? Ok. This may seem like a weird gift, but it is super meaningful! If you go to build-a-bear and stuff a bear for your mom, you can put a picture inside of it! If your mom recently lost a loved one, you can put a picture in it, as well as a heartbeat button and a voice button if you have a recording! You can even dress the bear a way your mom would love!

Now, I don’t know if all moms are like this, but my mom loves collecting figurines. More specifically, Norman Rockwell’s. Moms usually tend to have a certain figurine type that they like to collect. Get your mom one of these and she will be so happy!

Scented Candles 

Moms tend to like scented candles. I’m not too sure why, but they do! There are so many different brands of scented candles and a variety of different prices, too. T.J Maxx, HomeGoods, and Marshalls tend to have a variety of candles for relatively reasonable prices. HomeSense also tends to have nice candles for a decent price!

I don’t know how your mom is, but my mom LOVES hoodies! She wears them every day once the weather gets cool enough! Get your mom a nice hoodie from your college, or from a nice brand. Nike, Champion, and Under Armour tend to make some of the comfiest hoodies!

Coffee Mug/Tea Cup 

Now, as we all know, moms basically need coffee or tea to survive! Get your mom a coffee mug or tea cup based on what she drinks. Pick one with a cute quote or picture on it! Or, if you want to spend a little more money, get her a personalized one from Shutterfly with pictures on it.

Photo Album 

One thing moms love is something they can cherish. Photo albums are the perfect way to do that! You can make your own photo album by simply buying one at any craft store near you. Or you can even go a little crazy and order a really nice one from Shutterfly! Your mom is guaranteed to love it!

This has to be a no brainer! What mom doesn’t love a comfy pair of slippers to wear around the house? My mom won’t walk around the house unless she has slippers on. L.L Bean has really nice slippers, but they tend to be pricier. Kohls and the Bob’s store have some nice slippers for very reasonable prices!

The World 

This is definitely an unrealistic gift for your mom, but it had to be said! Our moms truly deserve the world! They gave us our life and helped us become the wonderful person we are today! Make sure your mom knows how much you truly appreciate them every day. Always tell them you love them and always give them a hug and a kiss whenever you can!
