Whether your mom is 40 or 80, she wants a few things for Christmas. 1: To be pampered. 2: For her life to be easier. And 3: To feel young whenever possible.
As mama to three young kids, I know this about motherhood—it’s exhausting, it’s messy, and you’re not often given time to focus on yourself. When shopping—which is something we moms rarely have time to do—I find myself gravitating to the kid’s section to replace worn-out sneakers and too-tight leggings. When getting a pedicure (another rarity), I’m checking my phone for SOS texts from the babysitter. For moms with older kids, it’s the same story with different details—checking for text alerts that practice ended early and they need a ride home, or that college is so fun they accidentally missed their flight this morning. Which isn’t to say that being a mom isn’t rewarding, believe me, it is a hundred times over, but it’s a marathon job that can be grueling at times.
So for children and husbands, Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to give mom a gift that she’ll truly appreciate, something that she wouldn’t splurge on for herself (like that eye-popping Guerlain lipstick or anti-aging face creams), that makes her day-to-day life much simpler (hello, Dyson cordless vacuum!), or that makes her feel like a kid again (let's take that beach cruiser for a spin, shall we?). We’ve hand-picked a mix of fashion, beauty, home and tech products that will have your mom squealing with excitement on Christmas morning, and looking at you like her first-born.
