Mom Approved Guide to Gift Giving

Hey friends! Happy Wednesday! This post is up a little later than normal, (sorry about that) but it's a completely mom approved guide to gift-giving!

I asked my mom yesterday what she thinks moms like to get for Christmas and she had lots of wisdom to share. Here are her guidelines:

"Gift something that shows you how well you know the person and something the person doesn't like to spend money on."

If they are always cold, consider gifting a nice robe, pajamas, or a snuggly sweater. For an extra 20% off these adorable Christmas pajamas use code MERRY (they come out to be less than $24!) This robe is on sale and is less than $27 right now! It looks so super soft! (All the best robes are!) I am completely in love with this cashmere poncho which is normally $150 (!!)  and is on major sale right now for $54.99! This sale will expire in less than 7 hours so don't wait! It comes in four colors and is seriously so cute. Is there anything better than snuggling up at home in soft pajamas or a robe?! Or a cashmere sweater for that matter, which you can also wear outside and not look frumpy in unlike a robe?!

"Craft supplies that they use a lot are a great idea, too. A gift card to a yarn store if they like to knit, for example, a gift card to a class, or a gift card to their favorite supply place like Michael's or Jo-Ann Fabrics. "

One nugget of wisdom my mom had to share is to buy your mom a gift that she doesn't like to spend money on for herself. For example, my mom really likes this face cream, but it's like $40 so she HATES spending money on it! This would be the perfect gift because it's something I know she loves but feels uncomfortable buying for herself.

Another mom-approved gift is a gently scented candle. Voluspa is one of my favorite candle brands. It's so great because it comes in so many different scents and sizes, including cute mini candles!

Other items to consider that will vary on your mom's decor:
A nice frame (which a cute picture of the two of you in it!) like Olivia Frames
Jay Strongwater ornaments
Entertaining ware like Michael Aram's
