From iconic rainboots to insane luxury hair dryers, treat your mom to something great. She deserves it. It’s that time of year. The time for holiday gift giving is nigh! And it’s hard. Gifting is filled with contradictions: the pressure to pick something familiar. And unique. Budget friendly. And luxurious. Some serious sleuthing produced this list of the best (often discounted) gifts for mom--gifts she’ll use and legitimately love-- at every price point. Let the shopping commence!
Homesick Candles: Homesick Candles are all about the power of smell to evoke a sense of place. Their “classic” candle is large, with a 60-80 hour burn time, and you’ll find individual lines dedicated to American cities (NYC is a mix of fresh cut grass and wet concrete while Miami is orange slices and spice), another specific to states (Colorado smells like a hike in the woods, Maine is a sweet mix of lavender and blueberries), and a third dedicated to memory (think Road Trip, buttered leather, or Grandma’s Kitchen, apple pie). You’re sure to find a scent that will feel custom-built for any mom.
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm: Aesop stores may have invaded every street corner in Brooklyn, but this much beloved/oft parodied self care line is still very much available on Amazon Prime. Invest in the holy grail of hand balms for all the moms in your life!

Drew Barrymore Flower Home Collection: This list could easily just have been a roundup of Drew Barrymore’s new home line for Walmart. Everything is bright, stylish, and truly affordable. We recommend a set of three glam bamboo prints, a modern lamp featuring a ceramic face with a deep red velvet shade, or an embroidered leopard throw pillow. Moms love Drew Barrymore. Happy shopping!

Natori Sleepwear: Whether rendered in terrycloth or satin, Natori’s robes and nightgowns feel truly luxurious to the touch. Amazon stocks an amazing quantity of the cult sleepwear brand at seriously slashed prices. Our favorites for moms include this full length satin nightgown as well as the black and white printed charmeuse robe.

Ceramic Garden Stool: For the mom who has everything. OR is a gardener. OR just loves to put her feet up. This ceramic stool works well inside or out, doubles as a side table, and is indistinguishable from pricier models.
Outsunny Ceramic Garden Stool
Hunter Rain Boots: Hunter Boots are the original (only?) iconic rainboot. They come in a variety of happy colors and prints, from muted to truly zany. Nordstrom Rack currently stocks an excellent selection at 40% off. We love both the Original Tall and Original Short options for mom. Bonus points if you get her Hunter boot sock inserts (available on Amazon) which help these double as snow boots.

Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific Collection: The Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific collection for Nordstrom is a gold mine of presents for fashionable moms of any sizes (hurray for capsule collections that include plus sizes!!) Absolute favorites? The blouson sleeve sweater in every imaginable color combo, the festive holiday bow collar blouse, and the long wool-blend trench.
