It seems to me that moms are the easiest people to shop for, but maybe that depends on the mom! Here are some of my favorite gifts for the moms or for the gals in your life, AKA this is your shopping cheat sheet, guys!
Love + Salt Beach Hair and Body Mist, Olivine Atelier, $10
I’ve heard the best things about this beach spray and at $10, this is a great gift for a girlfriend or a stocking stuffer. Beach spray works great on any hair type…
Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix & Mae James Coffee Beans, Not Without Salt, $27
And, yum. Buy this cooking-making kit for mom and let her stash them away and eat them ALL BY HERSELF. You can also buy the cookie mix on its own (also available in white chocolate peppermint with vanilla salt for the holidays!), but I love the pairing with coffee. Two gifts in one!
Enamel Initial Cuff, C. Wonder, $48
Every, every, EVERY mom will love this initial cuff. Get her first or last initial. Or, the initial of one of her kiddos. Some letters are already sold out, so if you want one of these as a gift for the holidays, grab it now.
RainColor Boots, MUNY, $139
A friend pointed me in the direction of these boots (thanks, kc!) and I think they are so cool! They were initially funded via Kickstarter and if the mom in your life loves boots, these are a fun new addition to her collection.
Faribault for Target Wool Shawl, Target, $60
Everyone needs something soft for the holidays, don’t you think? Loving this stylish shawl as a gift for moms because it is size-free!
Women’s Reclaimed Down Scarf, Patagonia, $99
I have a lovely friend who is a bit Patagonia-obsessed (name withheld to protect the guilty) and she was kind enough to share one of her favorites for the gift guide. Each scarf is made from used Patagonia jackets from this limited edition collection.
TRIbella Wine Aerator, Amazon, $40
This gadget is my latest obsession, not only because it pours the wine in a very classy triple spout, but because, FINALLY, I don’t drip wine all over the counter top!
Phone Wallet, Erin Condren, $29
So many moms on-the-go just grab their wallet, keys and phone to run into the store or to grab the kids from school. These phone wallets are a must — she can slip some cash and a credit card along with her phone to keep her hands free for shoe-tying and grocery grabbing.
Small Weekender Bag, Kate Spade Saturday, $170
If you’re looking for a splurge gift for mom, consider one of these weekender bags from Kate Spade Saturday, their newest brand. This one is pretty cute, but you can also customize a weekender for her or get her a gift card to let her customize one for herself.
Emily McDowell Grocery Bag, Urban Outfitters, $24
I couldn’t resist adding this tote bag because it sums up motherhood so well, doesn’t it? Groceries and shit, where “shit” usually means someone’s left shoe, a dozen string cheese wrappers, school permission slips and art projects, that tube of lip gloss you’ve been searching for…. You get the idea.
