It’s officially December, and if you’re planning to do your Christmas shopping online, it’s best to start early. Though the holidays will be quite different this year – no to big gatherings and yes to intimate celebrations, it’s still the perfect season to spoil your loved ones, from gift cards for your siblings to practical items for your dad and something customized and sweet for your mom.
For moms, no gift is too small nor too big because, as they say, "it’s the thought that counts." While all moms certainly enjoy presents that are handy for the house, Christmas is also an opportunity to pamper her with gifts related to her hobbies and current favorites. In this article, we prepared a buying guide, and our top 10 recommended gifts that moms will enjoy.
Treating your mom with a well-thought gift, no matter the price tag, will surely be appreciated. Whether you’re overwhelmed, confused, or undecided over what to get her, let us guide you on what to consider when buying a Christmas gift for your mom.
While we know our moms as the homemaker of the family and perhaps someone who is strict and is a disciplinarian, she is still an individual who has hobbies and interests, which she enjoys on her personal or me-time.
Consider picking a present based on her current favorites. Your mom will certainly appreciate the thoughtfulness behind the gift. It shows that you pay attention to what she likes.
Take a look at her social media accounts such as Facebook and Instagram to search for clues. Browse her posts and shared stories to discover the brands she follows and the style she prefers.
Check whether she likes clothes & accessories like watches, scarves, and earrings or home décor. Also, take a look at the gadgets or tech items that she’s interested in and the hobbies that she enjoys, for example, doing a mini spa or using skincare at home.
Meanwhile, you can also use her daily routine as a guide in selecting a gift. List down the activities that she would normally do every day, then select a gift that would make that task easier or more comfortable for her – perhaps an upgrade in her kitchen appliances, a new set of pots and pans, or an easy-to-use bag for errands.
This holiday season, online shops are in full force when it comes to rolling out sales, discounts, and free shipping promos for their customers.
Take advantage of these events, whether it’s the famous 12.12 sale or a brand-exclusive promo, so you can purchase high-end or big-ticket items from your mom’s wish list. Most of these sales are held for 24 hours only so be sure to prepare your “cart” ahead of time.
Personalized gifts always tug at the heartstrings, especially for moms. These days, many online shops offer services, which involve adding a customized detail to ordinary items thus making them more special.
These range from putting your mom’s initials or name on mugs, pillows, necklaces, bathrobes and tote bags, to incorporating her birthstone, favorite flower, or quote.
To take it to the next level, you can prepare the gift yourself. For example, you can put together a gift basket containing her favorite skincare products, snacks, and chocolates, even a grow kit if she’s into gardening.
You can also use family photos to make it more sentimental or valuable. It’s now easier to look for suppliers or online shops that can help you create photo books, matching t-shirts, or a wall art, which feature images of your mom or the entire family.
Your mom may also be into watching movies and TV series or listening to her favorite songs or podcasts during her me-time and while doing some chores at home.
Giving her an online subscription to Netflix, Spotify, or Apple Music will give her access to several titles and albums. Another option would be gifting her with audio books or magazine subscriptions, which she can also browse on her free time.
Also look into gift certificates and vouchers from online shopping sites so she can choose the item herself. This way, she can take her time in choosing her gift. Just make sure that the GCs and vouchers don’t have an expiry date.
Here are 10 great gift ideas that any mom would surely enjoy. These items are all available online so you can shop safely from home.
