One of my biggest stressors around the holiday season is finding the perfect gift for my mom. She seems to have it all, and I want to find a gift that will be useful, she doesn’t already have and is exciting. She does so much for everyone else around that time of year, and she deserves a special present. Gift-giving is proven to improve one’s kindness, create stronger bonds, enhance one’s empathy and demonstrate gratitude according to Moo.com’s “The Psychology Behind Gift-Giving: One for You, One for Me.” Avoid the serious challenge of finding the perfect holiday gift for your mom with these ideas:
1. J’adore Eau de Parfume 3-Piece Fragrance Gift Set
Nothing is better than being gifted a new perfume, especially when it’s J’adore ($164.00). Every year, I switch up my go-to fragrance, and so does my mom. This warm floral scent by Dior is a classic and can be enjoyed by anyone. This set makes gifting a perfume more exciting because it comes with a 3.4 oz full-size bottle, a 2.5 oz body milk, and a 0.17 oz mini bottle that is ideal for the mom who is always on the go.
2. Snow Angel Cleanse & Moisturize Shower Gel Set
Everyone adores being pampered, and this Philosophy body wash and lotion set ($30.00) makes it easy. This set comes with an eight-ounce bottle of shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath and an eight-ounce bottle of body lotion.
3. Pop Treats Lip Set
My mom’s favorite lip products come from Clinique, so as soon as I saw this lip set ($25.00), I knew it had to be included in the holiday gift guide. This set is valued at $85.50, but you are getting it for only $25.00, which is an incredible deal. This present has bold and neutral colors, which is excellent for everyday wear and elegant occasions. These lipsticks are also moisturizing and long-lasting.
4. Adeline Triple Pearl Cluster Dangle Earrings
Lisi Lerch is another one of my mom’s favorite brands; she loves its statement earrings. These earrings are high-quality fashion jewelry that will elevate any outfit. You can’t go wrong with these adorable pearl cluster dangle earrings ($98.00).
5. Gold Beaded Georgia Bracelet
This is another fun product from Lisi Lerch. This gold beaded bangle ($38.00) is a classic piece of jewelry that will match any outfit and work with any mom’s style.
6. Anthropologie Rose Metallic Slippers ($40.00)
Who wouldn’t like these Anthropologie rose metallic slippers ($40.00)? These slippers are Ugg dupes at a great price. For those moms who are not as pink-obsessed as mine, they can also be purchased in navy and bronze. These slippers are comfortable with all of the faux fur and super stylish with a metallic body.
7. University of Florida Gators Women’s Respin Short Sleeve Tee
All Gator moms want to show school spirit, and what better way than with a UF t-shirt ($38.00)? This t-shirt can be purchased in the University of Florida Bookstore located in the Reitz Union. This gift is easy to get and sure to be loved by all school-spirited moms.
8. Dance Studio Mid-Rise Joggers
My mom lives in athleisure, just like me. These are her favorite joggers ($98.00) because they are so comfortable, go with anything and are easy to throw on because she is always on the go. Treat your mom to a fancy pair of Lululemon joggers this holiday season. You can purchase the joggers in true navy, black, brier rose, water drop, carob brown, dark olive, roasted brown, red merlot and black camo.
9. Rose Colored Glasses Embossed Glass Candle 6.5 oz.
A candle is a wonderful gift for moms who enjoy having a clean and relaxing space. The rose colored glasses candle ($24.00) is my favorite scent from Voluspa because it is light but also so fragrant; it truly does smell like a fresh rose. The jar is also beautiful and fancy.
10. The Magnolia Bakery Handbook: A Complete Guide for the Home Baker
For moms who enjoy cooking and baking, this Magnolia Bakery cookbook ($19.59) is top-notch. Think about it, not only will it entertain your mom, but you will also get to eat delicious gourmet desserts! Everyone wins. Your mom can learn how to make its delectable cupcakes, warm cookies, pies and the most amazing banana pudding.
11. Mackenzie Childs Courtly Check Enamel Ice Cream Dish
All of the adults in my family love Mackenzie Childs. While the products are expensive, they are made to last forever, and the pieces are timeless. My mom likes chocolate frozen yogurt, and this courtly check enamel ice cream dish ($45.00) makes her feel like a queen whenever she indulges. Do the same for your mom and make her feel like royalty when eating a late-night snack. This also comes in royal blue and silver/grey.
12. Venus et Fleur Le Mini Round Rose
Every mom loves flowers, and this Venus et Fleur mini round rose ($44.00) will last an entire year. You can choose between 17 box materials and 26 rose colors to find a unique rose for your mom.
The holiday season is all about giving to loved ones and spending quality time with family and friends.
