For the intellectual mom

Moms don't always get a ton of downtime, so a good gift is one that lets them take time for them. This Kindle hits that goal in a few ways: it's small and lightweight, so Mom can bring it with her and read any time she has some free moments (maybe when kiddos are at the park). It's easy for her to personalize with the kinds of books she likes. And it gives her an excuse to slow down and sit on the couch for a while. Maybe with a glass of wine in one hand.

The gift of travel

My mom loves to travel, and I know that when 2020 is well behind us and we can hit the road again, she'll want some ideas of her next trip. I am a huge fan of this book, because it's all about the outdoors! That means these travel ideas are cheap, creative, and beautiful. Even if your mom isn't the most outdoorsy, there are some amazing suggestions for beautiful scenery or simple relaxation. Plus the pictures are gorgeous.

Colorful and practical

I actually have a set of these little spreaders and I adore them! The colors are vibrant and so full of personality. If your mom likes to host, this is a great gift: you can put them out with dips or cheeses, and she's sure to get tons of compliments on them. Plus they're sturdy and easy to use. Win/win.

A modern flair

If your mom has a great sense of style, these hanging vases could be just the thing. They've got the trendy geometric style that's all over Pinterest, and you can pop any kind of plant into them easily. I love the idea of gifting mom a little bit of fresh greenery during the winter.

Rest and relaxation

Ok, yes, candles are a little bit of a cliche but real talk: having your home smell nice and relaxing can really make a difference for how you feel. I also love a candle that looks nice, and the sea glass style of this one hits all the right buttons for me. If your mom is the kind who refuses to take a minute to chill out, this candle plus some other spa-style gifts would be a great combo.

Share a message

If you're gifting to a mom that has younger kids, this letter board could be a great way for them to practice writing and reading together, and it looks cute to boot. My favorite part would be setting up a sweet message before I gifted it.

Tea drinkers rejoice

If your mom likes tea, then this infusion set will make her go gaga. It's beautiful, with some incredibly cool etchings on the side, and it insulates both hot and cold drinks. "So impressed with this. I ordered one to use at work as I’ve started drinking loose leaf tea. When it arrived you could tell the quality straight away. The packaging is amazing. You feel as though you’re opening an expensive gift. Some nice touches and details in the strainer too. It comes with a strainer and infuser basket so you can put the ingredients in the bottle or the basket depending on what you prefer. The bottle is insulated well so even with boiling water added it is fine to pick up and hold. I was so impressed I ordered my wife the other version as a present. She loves it too."

Musical mama

Some moms are the kind of mom who don't really buy themselves upgrades. I'm talking the moms who try to listen to music through the built in speakers on their iPad. If that's your mom, this little Bluetooth speaker could change her world. It's compact, simple to use, has a great battery life, and packs a serious punch. Upgrade mom's music and she'll love you forever.

Essential oils

This one's for the crunchy moms. This set of six essential oils will be a huge hit with any mom who uses oils. It includes Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Lemongrass, and Sweet Orange, so she'll be getting a wide variety of options with all kinds of benefits. They give off a strong scent without being overpowering, and will never give you that nasty chemical scent. Just good vibes here.

Bath bombs!

You KNOW we had to include some bath bombs here. There are two reasons: first, bath bombs are amazing. Second, all moms deserve some time to chill out, soak their tired bodies, and breathe in some delicious scents. Make mom happy: give her bath bombs.
