Finding the best gifts for mom can be both the easiest task (they’ll love you no matter what!) and the hardest (what do you get the woman who raised you?). How do you sum up all your love and gratitude in just one box?
Truth is, you really can’t go wrong with the classics: Soft pajama sets, serving ware, a new book, and gifts that pamper will never disappoint. Who doesn’t love a comfy pajama update or a chic pair of house slippers to waft around in? Those exact little luxuries are things one rarely wants to spend their own money on but will welcome wholeheartedly when presented as a gift.
Should you want something a tad more personal, we suggest leaning into her hobbies. Give a gift that allows a newfound interest to flourish. Newly minted chef? La Double J’s cheerful printed apron has you covered. Workout enthusiast? Theragun’s restorative muscle-therapy device is just the ticket. Got a green thumb? A gardening tool set and a tote to store her freshly picked veggies are the perfect present. Also, it’s no doubt that most moms provide the ultimate wardrobe inspiration. For the fabulously fashionable mom, give her the gift of Bottega Veneta’s It bag or a pair of embellished ballet flats.
And if you’re still in doubt, make it personal. A sentimental locket is surely one way she can hold loved ones close, while a monogrammed pair of PJs or mules she can slip into every day are still a very thoughtful gift in part because of the special consideration, care, and time that went into having them made. But if all else fails, make no mistake with buying her diamonds. Discover Vogue’s edit of gifts that are guaranteed to keep mom smiling straight through the holiday season and beyond.
