Unsurprising Gift Ideas for Your Mom This Christmas

It’s a really good time to start your Christmas shopping right now. Not only will you be finished well in advance of the big day, you’ll be able to relax and avoid all of the chaos. One important person many of us have to buy for come Christmas, is the lady who brought us into the world. Our mothers! Here I have 5 great gifts your mom is bound to love. They might not be very unique or surprising, but they’ll be a big hit!

A Posh Candle

Is it just me, or do moms love candles? There are all kinds of amazing candles you can purchase now too. The Yankee candle is one of the most popular, as they have hundreds of scents to choose from that smell so realistic. However, you can also purchase designer candles.

A Beautiful Bunch of Flowers

Flowers are a lovely way to show your mom you care at Christmas time. You can get some really special arrangements, so you can give your mom flowers like she’s never had before! It’s so easy to order with an online flower shop too.

A Sentimental Piece of Jewelry

If you know your mom’s taste, why not buy her a sentimental piece of jewelry that she can keep forever? You could buy her anything; earrings, a ring, a necklace, whatever you think she’ll wear! If you’re unsure, take a look at the jewelry she currently wears to see if you can get ideas. If she doesn’t wear jewelry, then it might not be the best choice. You don’t want it to go unworn and dusty in a box!

A Nice Bottle of Perfume

You just can’t beat an expensive bottle of perfume. If you’re not sure what to get, note down some of your mom’s favorites that you can see on her dressing table. You can then speak to a specialist who can suggest similar scents or complementary scents. If you can’t find anything that you think she’ll like, simply buy her a new bottle of an old favorite. It’ll always be appreciated!

Comfortable Lounge Wear

Most moms are so busy, they love the time they get to themselves to kick back and relax. Why not treat them to some comfortable loungewear to do this in? Slippers, pyjamas, and any kind of comfortable outfit should be greatly received. Just make sure you know her size. There’s nothing like a fresh pair of cosy pyjamas at Christmas time. They won’t break the bank either!

These gifts aren’t very surprising, but at least one of them should go down a storm with your mom. As long as you do a little sleuthing beforehand to find out her taste/size, you should give her something that she’s really happy with. Asking people what they want for Christmas defeats the object in my eyes. Think of a gift yourself and they won’t forget it in a hurry! Do you have any ideas? What will you be giving your mom this Christmas? Let me know!


  1. I tried getting my mom lounge wear and other things to wear but I guess that’s just not for me since nothing was her size. I’m sticking to perfumes, candles and jewelry thank you very much!

  2. You can’t go wrong with posh candles because almost every mom out there seems to love them :). But I don’t think this will be enough. I mean, she’s your mom, right? She deserves much more, no? I would also get her a beautiful flower bouquet and a bottle of perfume she likes. This is what I got her last year and she was very happy. I will try to mix things up this year and get her something to wear as well.

  3. Oh man! I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner.

    Thanks for all these great tips. My mom really likes gift cards to fabric stores. In the end she ends up making blankets for my kids so it’s kind of like buying gifts for the kids too. Lol

    Another great idea is a year pass to a local zoo. Zoo’s are so much fun every time you go. They’re a nice break from life and a great way to spend time with a family member or friend. Knowing that you can do it for free all year round is especially great.
