Your mother is undoubtedly the rock star in your life. She’s sweet, protective, and fierce when she needs to be. She always has your best interest at heart and puts your needs above all else. Just like all of us, she probably spent the last Christmas in quarantine and isolated from you and all her other loved ones. This year is a great time to give her the best Christmas ever. But what is the perfect gift for mum this Christmas?
Apart from hosting her for a Christmas dinner, gift her something extra special so she remembers this one. We’ve compiled a list of a few gifts that will be surefire options to put a smile on your mum’s face.
1. Scented Candles
Hear us out before you disregard this as too common. This doesn’t have to be a stand-alone gift. You can add this to a nice self-care basket. Scented candles are known for their soothing effect. They can help calm her nerves and wind down after a long day with her grandkids or simply doing her usual jobs around the house.
Has she been looking to redecorate the place for a while, or did she make use of all this quarantine time to re-do the house? Either way, a nice-looking vase can be a great option for her entryway table or fresh flowers in her room. Every time she adds the flowers or cleans them out, she will be reminded of you. What’s a better option than that?
3. Artificial Plants
How about adding some greenery across her personal space? Now, we don’t want to add to her work so artificial plants are a great option that will add the required effect and make the place look homey. You can choose from a range of different types of plants or trees, and even choose ones that match with the chosen vase or pot you have selected for her.
4. Crossbody Bag
Goodness knows what parts of our houses reside in our mum’s bag. Every possible object necessary is always in their bags. To add some new style to the chaos, a great gift for mum would be a new and stylish crossbody bag that she can carry her stuff around in. Utility doesn’t mean boring, and she should look as fashionable as ever with a cute crossbody bag that also has loads of pockets.
5. Blanket Sweatshirt
We all have those cold winter nights where we just wish we could carry a blanket around with us. Lucky for us, some genius out there invented a blanket sweatshirt that you can obviously wear around and stay warm throughout. Get this one in your mum’s favourite colour and keep her warm this winter.
6. Smart Mug
Ok, wait, a mug that’s smart? Yes. This one can keep your drink cold and hot if you set the temperature. It’s USB-powered, so all you need to do is keep the dock charged, and then you can keep adjusting the temperature according to what you need. Isn’t this such a wonderful gift for a mom whose tea and coffee always get cold because she’s too busy working.
7. Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets are an awesome gift for mum and there is no doubt about their medical benefits. If your mom struggles with sleep, this is an excellent option to keep her warm and help her with achieving the deep sleep state and getting well-rested. This one is a must-have for moms that work round the clock!
8. An Essential Oil Bracelet
There is no doubt in the calming and medicinal powers of essential oils. Instead of having the diffuser limited to her room or house, she can wear her favourite oil around her wrist and take it with her wherever she goes. This essential oil bracelet is such a unique and thoughtful gift, it is sure to make your mom happy when she receives it.
9. Wrapping It Up
Now that you have so many nice options to choose from, you need to start thinking about how you’re going to wrap the present. Choose a wrapping paper that suits her personality and the occasion. You can also use small Christmas decorations to embellish the gift for her.
Christmas is a time for joy and togetherness. Make sure you make it special for your mum this year! For more great gifting ideas, check out our other Koch Blog What Makes A Gift Hamper Great?
