We moms spend a lot of time looking for the perfect gift for friends and family but what about us? What do moms want for Christmas? Well, we asked 215,000 of our besties in the Grown and Flown Parents group what gifts they hoped their family might be shopping for right now.
Christmas gifts moms really want
Note: We receive commissions from purchases made through the links in this post.
1. Apple Watch
This Series 7 Apple watch has amazing capabilities that make it so much more than a mere watch or fitness tracker. You can call, text, and email, stream music, podcasts, or audiobooks, measure your blood oxygen, and you can track high and low heart rate and irregular heart rhythm notifications. Select from any number of colors and straps…we think this gold mesh one is gorgeous.
The Series 7 is pricey. If you want to get many of the same features at a more affordable price, take a look at the Apple SE watch which is half the price.
2. AirPod Pro
Once you use AirPods you will never know how you lived without them. Perfect for listening to podcasts or talking to friends and family while we take care of all the things that need to be done. With noise-cancellation, they can truly help you find your “me time.”
4. Milk frother
This elegant quilted bag by Tory Burch is both classic and on-trend with the “rainwater” color and chevron quilting pattern. Use with or without the chain strap. You will want to find a good hiding place for this so your daughter doesn’t shop for a new bag in your closet.
Never having to vacuum again would be a true gift and these robot devices are incredible. There are many models and different price points to choose from.
A digital assistant that can play your favorite music, answer questions, set a timer, give the weather forecast and take down our grocery list all hands-free, sounds like our kind of gift.
The family group chat is a great way to keep in touch, but here is another idea we LOVE. Have your college students or young adults send you photos from their phones, straight to a photo frame in your office, kitchen, or family room.
11. Jenni Kayne
Jenni Kayne’s sweaters will 100% become the staple of your wardrobe. A pair of jeans with one of these comfy sweaters and you are set for your daily activities and going out at night.
This clever device will keep your hands warm for three to four hours on a full charge. If your hands are warm, no matter what the temperature, you’re all set. Perfect for sitting on the sidelines at those cold soccer games.
If you haven’t discovered Vuori yet-it’s time you do. Their clothes are the definition of comfortable. The joggers are available in many pretty colors and you will never want to take them off.
The yoga pants at Lululemon may be at the top of our daughters’ lists, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be on ours, too. Plus there are great jackets and accessories that we would love to receive, too.
These kitten heel boots are trendy and the knitted upper gives them a sock-like feeling.
Pop this into the microwave for 1-2 minutes and treat yourself to a soothing spa-like experience as the scent of lavender is released while the pillow soothes all the muscles around your neck. Next time your teens are driving you crazy, do this to help you de-stress.
Lucious smells, great hand cream and beautiful gift packaging make this set of hand creams a lovely gift for a mom. With the cold winter months in many parts of the country and frequent hand washings, this is a very practical gift, too.
Why didn’t anyone think of this before? This plastic water bottle fits inside a bag or purse, is unbreakable and leak-proof. This will keep you hydrated from home, to work, to driving your teens to all of their after-school activities.
You have to have a sense of humor when you’re the mom of a teen! We think these cute mugs pretty much sum up our feelings about this stage of life. This will help you start your day with a smile.
Give a mom this special wine tumbler and she will never want to use any other wine glass. Wine keeps chilled in this shatterproof mug. Available in many colors and add a monogram to make it truly hers.
YETI’s shipping cutoff to arrive by Christmas morning is noon CST on December 20 – and YETI is offering free express shipping to ensure it makes it under your tree!
One thing that our teens seem to “borrow” and never return is our phone chargers. Give her this innovative platform that will quickly charge her phone and new AirPod Pros at the same time.
Mom, you’re going to love Bearaby’s Cotton Napper this uber-popular napping weighted blanket. It’s not only smart looking, it’s so, so comfy and can help you slip away from the holiday hoopla and get some restorative sleep.
23. MZ Wallace
It’s unusual to find a sale on MZ Wallace because it’s such a well-made, useful bag. You can literally throw anything in there and it’s easy to carry and great looking to boot.
But really, truly when it all comes down to it, the one thing we want most, is everyone in our family gathered around the kitchen table (happy and healthy, of course) in our very own homes laughing, talking without one single phone in sight. So get mom this Smartphone jail and relinquish your phone for the night, please. More Great Reading: Stocking Stuffers for Teens
