I don’t know about you, but I’m a planner. When it comes to holiday shopping, I scout out all of the sales and make a game plan. While it’s too early to know what Black Friday and Cyber Monday will bring us this year, you can bet I already have a gift list ready for all of my friends and family.
For moms (or any woman for that matter!) a great pampering gift is the go-to: body scrub, soy candle, hand cream. Think at-home spa experience!
If your mom isn’t the spa type or is sensitive to fragrance, like my mom, try for other at-home comforts: fuzzy socks, slippers, a cookbook, her favorite tea and a new tea pot.
And then there’s always the indulgence category. My mom rarely splurges on herself, so one year I got her something she’d always wanted, a Coach wallet. That may not be in your budget, so think of other luxuries that she would love to have but may never buy herself. Sephora has so many gift sets this time of year from skincare to lip gloss.
My tip for buying the perfect gift is to keep a list year-round with ideas. I take mental notes when my mom says, “I’d love to try..” or “I wish I had..” and anytime I have a stroke of brilliance, it goes in the Notes app in my phone.
Happy shopping! See more gift ideas.
