Holiday Gift Guide {for Mom}

It’s that time of year again: the time of year when our shopping is completely justified, and even, encouraged, because hey, ’tis the season.  And also, it’s giving, and therefore a totally “good” kind of shopping.

I thought I’d kick things off with a little list of gift ideas for a special mom in your life. I’m always trying to find a thoughtful gift for my mom – particularly something that she wouldn’t get for herself; but all of a sudden, this year, I have friends … who are moms! Apparently, this is part of growing up. So now here I am, trying to brainstorm the kinds of gifts that I would want (when I eventually become a mom) … a very cool kind of mom, I might add.

A gift for mom should be something just for her – half practical / half splurge.  From a leopard print mouse (and keyboard set) to a lacy bralette, from a go-anywhere watch (that I myself covet!) to a much-needed new wallet, from funky cat-eye sunnies to an initial bracelet (or two or three – one for each of her babies), the gift should be personal and oh-so-special.

    I find my mom the easiest person to shop for…she usually just wants spa days with me (hey, I’m not arguing). These are great ideas!

      That sounds like a great idea — hitting up my dad for a spa day asap!

  2. My mom is the most difficult person to shop for. She returns everything! Argh. I do love those Kate Spade iPad covers. Maybe I’ll get her that. If she hates it, it’s your fault. haha jk.
