I know it’s not quite November, but Halloween is going to come and go in the blink of an eye and that means the holiday season will be here just as fast! I wanted to round up some of my favorite gift ideas for moms because let’s face it, they can be hard to shop for.
If you or the new mom you’re shopping for is anything like me, you’ll likely defer the question, “What do you want for Christmas?” and instruct the person asking to spend the money on your kids. While I agree I would not like lots of presents and gifts, there are a handful of items I think any mom will appreciate.
Here are my top four:
Target Gift Card. Because moms and Target go together like peanut butter and jelly, duh! Honestly, if you can’t think of anything to get this momma you’re shopping for, a gift card is a no brainer. I can’t guarantee that she will spend the gift card 100% on herself, but she will use it as an excuse to take a solo Target trip and perhaps enjoy her favorite Starbucks beverage while she strolls the aisles in silence (yes, us moms love to do this!). Target even lets you send eGift Cards via email if you’re running behind on shopping! Do not underestimate the power of a simple gift card.
Pampering. Massage? Manicure? 99% of the moms I know enjoy some kind of pampering session. Hit up her favorite hair or nail salon and pick up a gift card. Better yet, book her an appointment when you’re available to babysit! If you’re unsure of which spa/salon she likes to visit, SpaFinder is a great service that allows you to buy a general gift card to many spas and salons in your area so she can choose.
Mom stuff. I may be biased, because I love Mom Life Must Haves more than anyone on the planet, but let’s be real for a second. Moms LOVE being moms, and the majority of them are proud of it, and are more than willing to say so with their “stuff”. Pick her up a Mom shirt, or mug, or hat, or all of the above! These gifts will not disappoint.

Surprises. You may or may not have heart about all the subscription box services that are out there nowadays, there are a LOT! The PopSugar Must Have Box is my favorite for one reason: it’s full of stuff moms normally wouldn’t buy for themselves! Every month they send a box full of goodies that include makeup, snacks, and other apparel or accessories. Order up a few months for the mom you’re shopping for, it will certainly make her smile! Here’s a snap shot of what came in the October Must Have box that PopSugar sent me to try:
