2020 may have been one of the worst years on record, but Christmas is just around the corner, and an excuse to truly celebrate with your nearest and dearest. Whether you’re going home for the holidays or you’re planning on staying put where you are and sending gifts on, knowing what to buy your mom during these challenging times can be tough. Below, we’ve put together some awesome gift ideas for moms that she’ll love – let us know what you pick!
As much as we’d like to kid ourselves otherwise, the chances are that the pandemic will run into 2021, and as a result, we’ll be spending more time at home than ever before. One great gift idea is to treat your mom to a Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Apple TV+ subscription so that she can get hooked on a new boxset. Once she’s finished with America’s Got Talent, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and The Bachelorette, she can immerse herself into a whole new world, whether it’s Stranger Things, The Morning Show, or The Grand Tour.
A piece of jewelry
Something else that moms love are jewelry, not only so they can customize their outfits and look their best at all times, but also so they can remember when their kids bought them a special piece that will make them feel closer to you. Whether it’s some bracelets or a Celtic cross necklace, now’s the time to shop around and look for a gift that means the world.
The weather outside will soon be frightful, so why not buy your mom a set of cozy PJs and slipper socks so she can stay wrapped up and warm at home? If you want to make it even more special, you could also head on over to Bath and Bodyworks and buy her a few bath salts, candles, and accessories, and wrap it up with some cellophane. Creating your own custom hamper is not only a lovely gift idea, but it’s often much cheaper than high street brands’ alternatives. Better yet, you can pick out the products and clothing that she loves.
Upgrade her home
We’re not saying that you need to speak to a realtor about a new property for your mom, but upgrading her home by investing in a couple of smart speakers is a great idea. Google and Amazon regularly run promotions on their Nest Mini and Echo Dot products, and Apple has just released a new version of its popular HomePod product, so you’re spoilt for choice. Add in a few smart light bulbs so she can control the lighting in her bedroom and lounge, and you’re onto a winner. Make sure you have the time to properly install and set them up, too.
A map of her favorite place
Right now, it feels like we’re stuck and can’t look forward to the future – simply because we don’t know when we’ll safely be allowed to travel. There are now dozens of websites that let you design map posters of any place in the world, so choose your mom’s favorite, whether that’s London, New York, or Sydney. Add a cute personalized quote to the map, and give it to her in a pretty frame; it’s an innovative way to bring the concept of travel closer to home.
