Gifts Moms Really Want

Something Cozy

Warm Boots

Cozy Throw

Knitted Beanie

Hoodie

Soft Pajamas

Oversized Scarf

Warm Boots: I live in my UGGs from November through March! They are such an easy shoe to throw on and go. My feet are always cold, and these boots keep them extra cozy and warm. I love the button detail on these, which also makes fitting pants inside the boots easier. Choose any of the colors for a neutral that will go with everything!

Cozy Throw: I use my Barefoot Dreams throw daily! It lives in my living room, but I find myself taking it to other rooms as well. I have had it a few years now, and it has washed but so well! It still feels and looks the way it did when I got it. It would also be a perfect addition to any bedroom!

Knitted Beanie: Did you know that when it’s cold out, a lot of your body heat escapes through your head? When it’s cold out, wearing a beanie can help keep you warm by not allowing the warm air to escape. This wool blend will keep your ears nice and toasty! The pom-pom adds a fun and stylish detail.

Soft Hoodie: A cozy hoodie that does double duty? Sign me up! This soft-to-the-touch fabric makes up the perfect sweater for lounging or out and about. It is perfect for being comfortable without looking sloppy. There is a kangaroo pouch that is perfect for keeping your hands warm on a cool day! There are also coordinating pants you can purchase if you would like to make it a matching set.

Soft Pajamas: The Natori pajamas will keep you warm all winter long! They are made with soft fleece material and can easily be worn separately or together. The pants have an adjustable elastic waist for maximum comfort. And the pajama sets come in a variety of neutrals.

Oversized Scarf: A large statement scarf is perfect for keeping warm in the winter months! These oversized scarves come in a variety of colors. They are made from recycled polyester. These scarves can be worn in many ways. It is the perfect winter season accessory!

Scrunchies: This silk scrunchie pack from Slip includes three that are different sizes. They are made from pure silk. These are much easier on your hair and cause less breakage than typical hair ties. This would be a great gift or stocking stuffer for any woman!

Drunk Elephant Set: Take care of your hair and skin with this set from Drunk Elephant! Their products are all vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and come in recyclable packaging.

Ring Set

Personalized Mini Bar Necklace: We are obsessed with this special gift! This customizable bar necklace is a minimal classic, and layers perfectly with other necklaces. Mom will love this beautiful piece with a touch of sentiment!

Bow Stud Earrings: Dainty but cute—these bow studs are the perfect accessory to any look! They are made out of 14k gold and have a precious girlie bow design.

Cool Tech

Kindle

Airpods

Alarm Clock

Apple Watch

Instant Camera

Kindle: The perfect gadget for every reading-obsessed mama! The Kindle with built-in front light is ideal for at home or on the go. It reads like actual paper even in sunlight! Store all your favorites and best-selling reads at your fingertips.

Airpods: I use my Airpods daily and truly do not know how I lived before without them! They’re perfect for talking on the phone on the go and listening to music or movies. They charge when they’re in the case, so you don’t even have to charge them that often! The battery life is pretty impressive. You can always find a pair of these in my purse!

Hatch Alarm Clock: This alarm clock by Hatch is on my own Christmas list this year. We have the sound machine for my son, and it is an absolute lifesaver. I have a lot of trouble getting up in the morning since I’m not a morning person. I think having something like this that gently wakes you with sound and light would help a lot.

Apple Watch: This is one of those things that I didn’t understand why everyone was so obsessed with it before I had one. I’ve now had an Apple Watch for probably three years, and it is a must-have for me. I love that I can answer my phone or text messages from the watch. I also enjoy operating my Spotify via my wrist when I’m on the go instead of having to dig for my phone.

Instant Camera: I’m big on taking photos, but I’m not always the best at having them printed. Having them printed instantly would be such a tremendous help! This camera takes the photo, and you can print out a physical copy right away. Such a great and sentimental gift for making new memories!

Suede Sneakers: I remember having a pair of these in middle school, and they are back and hotter than ever! They are incredibly comfortable and wearable sneakers. The chunkiness of this sneaker is perfectly on trend with the “dad sneaker” craze that has been popular last season and this one. Wear relaxed and unlaced or tied up completely!
