Need some great ideas for gifts for mom this year? There are two ways you can approach this. First, you can give her the same traditional Christmas gifts that people always give their moms – like perfume, a bathrobe, or a kitchen gadget. Second, you can take the surprise route and give her something she wouldn’t expect from you but would love to receive it!
Let’s talk about traditional gifts for mom during the holidays. Moms love getting these types of presents because they’re usually the kind of things that are easy for their loved ones to figure out for them.
Perfume is a great gift for mom, but instead of just buying a single fragrance, why not buy a gift set that includes the fragrance, plus some bath and body items to boot. Some perfume gift sets for mom even include luxury items like jewelry.
Bathrooms that are luxurious can help pamper mom after a long day at work (or home). You can find plush microfiber bathrobes that feel amazing, or stick to a terrycloth robe if that’s what she prefers – just make sure you get the length right.
For the kitchen, some of the perfect gifts for mom this year will be programmable slow cookers where they can start dinner early and have it ready by the time their work is all done. A standing mixer is also a welcomed kitchen gadget for mom.
Now if you want to shock her by giving her a gift she wouldn’t have even thought to ask for, but will really appreciate, why not go with a technical gadget that she’d normally be buying for someone else?
For example, a portable vehicle GPS system wouldn’t break the bank for you, but it would ensure mom never gets lost on the road. Is she a fitness buff? Get her a watch-based GPS fitness monitor made by Garmin. It not only tracks her workout and stats, but it makes sure that if she’s hiking or biking somewhere, she’ll have maps to get her home safely.
Everyone’s switching to HDTV and Blu Ray technology. Does mom have this yet? If not, why not upgrade her set so that she can watch all of her favorite shows in high definition. Give her a gift certificate so that she can order some of her favorite Blue Ray discs, too.
Gifts for mom don’t have to be the same, old boring routine. But then again, maybe mom relies on traditional gifts because it’s when she expects them. You’ll have to make that tough decision, but at least now you have some ideas to run with.
