89 Christmas Gift Ideas for Mom

From Witty Etched Glassware to Full Beauty Subscription Services

— December 3, 2013 — Fashion
Sometimes it’s hard to shop for the most important person in your life, which is why these Christmas gift ideas for mom will come in handy this holiday season. What do you get for the woman who’s given you the gift of life? It can seem like a daunting task, no doubt. Fortunately, there’s something out there for everyone -- whether your mom is super into home decor or prefers an activity like wine-drinking. For the moms who live to decorate their casa, there are tons of home decor items that will make her smile. For instance,  a minimalist globe lamp or compact minimalist vase might be the perfect thing to spruce up the home.

But if there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that moms work tirelessly to provide everyone with TLC, and they certainly deserve some of their own R&R. If you want to pamper your mom, treat her to an indulgence like an artisan boozy fruit jam or a full beauty subscription service.
