This year, treat your mom to something great. She deserves it. 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 gifts for mom--gifts she’ll use and legitimately love-- at every price point. Let the shopping commence!
Mom’s are busy people, especially these days with at-home schooling or working from their living rooms. That means they probably don’t have time to enjoy a full cup of coffee before it gets cold. The Ember mug is programmed to keep drinks at the perfect temperature for hours and hours, so they can sip at their own speed.
The Essential Apron
Not all aprons need to be boring and flimsy. The Hedley & Bennett is a favorite of Scouted Staff Writer Dan Modlin, but it’s also a favorite of restaurant chefs and at-home cooks alike. It’s sturdy, comfortable, and the patterns like polka dot, paisley, and tie dye make it the perfect gift for your favorite mom chef.
100% Washable Silk Tank & Pants Pajama Set
This set of washable silk pajamas is the best way to give your mom the gift of luxury without the hassle. Unlike normal silk that needs to be dry cleaned, this set can easily be machine washed.
VacuVin wine Saver
If your mom is a wine lover, this is the perfect gadget to pair with her favorite bottle of vino. Simple pop this onto an open bottle and it helps seal it better than shoving the cork back in and hoping for the best.
The Digestif Candle
Specifically designed for burning during or after cooking, this candle from the makers of our favorite olive oil, Brightland, is one you can leave out. It’s beautifully designed and mixes scents of neroli, vetiver, and black pepper.
Naipo Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager:
Everyone could use a massage and no one more than moms. This massager is my personal favorite because of the rotating nodes and heat. Plus, the arm bands allow mom to control just how much pressure she needs.
Cozy Cotton Silk Waffle Henley
This cozy sweater is made from a blend of silk, cotton, and nylon, which means it’s incredibly soft and luxurious but also machine-washable. It’ll be something mom can throw on in the morning or cozy up under a blanket at night.
NEST Fragrances Pura Smart Home Fragrance Diffuser
Unlike Nest’s traditional scent offerings, the Pura Smart Diffuser is all about convenience. Using the app, you can schedule when you want the diffuser to start and even switch between two different scents with the touch of a button on your phone.
WalkingPad C1 Foldable Treadmill
What is it with moms and their love of walking? Every summer, I spend a week at the Jersey shore and each morning I walk two miles with my mom. This foldable treadmill will help her get her steps in when the weather isn’t cooperating and it’s incredibly easy to hide away when she’s not using it.
Le Creuset Craft Series Utensil Set
Everyone has those overflowing containers of mismatched cooking utensils. Give your mom the gift of a beautiful kitchen aesthetic with this Le Creuset set. It comes with three different rubber spatula plus a basting brush.
Japanese Handmade House Shoes
It’s customary in Japan to remove your shoes when entering someone’s home and replace them with house slippers. These soft, comfortable slippers are great for mom to wear in the morning or after a work day. They’re machine-washable, travel-friendly and fully reversible.
Lemon and Lime Citrus Trees
Moms that love to cook usually have all the tools already at their disposal. Instead of gifting her knives or an appliance, why not something a little bit more unique, but still functional? Choose between a Meyer lemon tree or a Persian lime tree, both of which are easy indoor growers.
Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug
Pair this double-walled, vacuum-sealed mug with some specialty coffee or tea and you’ve got a simple gift that will make her happy every day. Plus, she’ll think about you every time she puts her morning coffee inside the stainless steel bottle. It’s a win-win for you.
