The Best Ideas for Holiday Gifts for Mom and Mother-in-Law

The best gifts for moms and mother in laws

Talk about special women! When it comes to the holidays, what do you get for the special mama who raised you or that MIL in your life that you’re grateful for and/or looking to impress? When I asked on Instagram who you are struggling to shop for, moms and mother in law’s came in first so here are the best ideas for holiday gifts for mom and MIL!

Think of something they’d love but might not treat themselves too, like a luxurious cardigan (now on sale! we got our moms this one two years ago), cozy slippers or a splurge skincare set, or something unique like this sentimental necklace, family cookbook (perfect for the chef!) and… oh my goodness, if she has a pet, I’m obsessed with this custom pillow idea. Talk about a fun conversation starter!

You can also help upgrade her every day essentials with the prettiest leather tote (Cuyana has the best quality for the price), a cool card case, or even score her this handy lipstick holder, and include either a little gift card or lipstick from her favorite brand. A few other favorites: a new wine bottle chiller, complete with a bottle of her favorite wine; any budding green thumbs will love this aerogarden; and I’m completely smitten by this thoughtful giving plate… consider imprinting the recipe to a family recipe passed down through generations. Incredibly special!

And, are you the type of kid (well, adult kid!) who is constantly emailing and texting photos but not printing them for family? Solve the problem and get them this Kodak printer that prints from any device. It’s a win win for everyone!

The Best Ideas for Holiday Gifts for Mom and Mother-in-Law:

Aerogarden // wine chiller // personalized necklace // leather tote

Drunk Elephant skincare set // Why I love Grandma personalized book
