Christmas is right around the corner, and shopping for gifts isn’t always easy—especially for someone as important as your mom.

After all, this was the woman that raised you, clothed you, fed you, and provided for you. No single gift could ever truly show her how much you appreciate everything she’s done for you.

There are a few gifts that come close, though.

Here are our top 10 gifts for mom this Christmas season:

#1: Tea World Tour By Atlas Tea Club

The first selection in this Christmas gift guide is the Tea World Tour subscription by Atlas Tea Club. With this subscription, your mother can experience all the different flavors of the world without ever having to leave her home.

Available in 3, 6, and 9-month subscriptions, this service ships teas from all over the globe directly to your mom’s front door.

#2: A Self Care Basket

Mothers work hard to keep their families in line, which means they often forget to take care of themselves. That makes a self-care basket the perfect gift for the mom in your life.

What’s even better is that self-care baskets are completely customizable, so you can add in all of the things your mother enjoys. We recommend adding some or all of the following to your basket:

  • Bath salts
  • Bath bombs
  • Facial masks
  • A crystal face roller
  • A plush blanket
  • Body butter
  • Lip butter
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Chocolate (shelf-stable)

You may also consider adding a LIFEazine subscription to your basket to help your mother commemorate her most precious memories! Learn more about this in our previous blog post.

What else you add into the self-care basket is ultimately up to you, but this list should serve to get you started on a wonderful series of gifts for mom.

#3: Essential Oils Necklace

Essential oils are perfect gifts for moms who love all things wax warmers and candles.

With an essential oils necklace, the pendant opens up to reveal a small piece of felt or cloth that you can apply any brand/scent of essential oils to. By selecting specific scents and wearing them throughout the day, your mom can evoke emotions like joy, tranquility, and excitement.

#4: Coffee Mug Warmer

Coffee is the official fuel of mothers, but coffee that’s cold when it isn’t supposed to be is unpleasant. If you have a mom that likes to nurse her drinks throughout the day, then coffee mug warmers make perfect gifts for mom!

With a mug warmer, your mom can keep her coffee warm all day long without having to continuously pop it into the microwave.

#5: Bouquets

This gift is perfect for those of you who are going to be out of town during the Christmas season and won’t be able to make it back in time to celebrate.

Show your mom you’re with her always by arranging to have a flower delivery brought to her home on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Then, include a small card to let her know how much you care about her.

#6: A Brand New Keyboard and Mouse

Whether your mom is someone who works from home or simply has a lot of online hobbies, a new (and matching) keyboard and mouse is the perfect way to spice up those familiar surroundings. Not to mention, with how popular colorful computer peripherals are nowadays, you can easily find something in her favorite color.

When buying the keyboard and mouse, take into consideration the types of things she likes versus what she doesn’t. For example, if she doesn’t like a lot of noise, you could get her something ultra-quiet and comfortable. If she likes to hear the keys tap, you could buy her a spruced-up mechanical keyboard with a matching mouse. The options are endless!

#7: A Luxurious Bathrobe

It’s no secret that the perfect bathrobe can completely change your shower experience. Show your mom you care by getting her something ultra-comfortable and cute this holiday season! After a long day, nothing will be more appealing to her than curling up in the comfort of a fluffy robe.

High-quality bathrobes are generally available at most department stores as well as online, so this gift also makes a perfect last-minute idea.

#8: A Customized Candle

I’m talking about more than just a candle with a photo applied to it. If you order online, you can find candles where you can actually customize the scent!

This idea makes an excellent Christmas gift (as well as Mother’s Day!), as you can pick out two/three of your mom’s favorite fragrances and put them into one, well-craft candle. When she lights it up, she’ll be in heaven.

#9: Birth Month Flower Grower

Getting flowers for mom may be an old idea, but this gift takes it to a whole new level.

By getting your mom her own flower growth kit and allowing her to nurse the bloom of her birth month from seedling to adult just like she did for you. With this gift idea, you can easily become her new favorite child.

Photo albums are incredible gifts, but what’s even better than that?
