Little luxuries are always appreciated, but finding something a mom will actually use is also a good idea, says Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com. But steer clear of gifts that are too practical, like vacuums or elliptical machines. “Don't get them something to help them clean or get in shape or anything along those lines unless they've specifically asked for it,” she advises.

And if you want to score deals on your holiday list, you'll want to shop early. “Start looking for sales on these items now,” says Ramhold. “Plenty of retailers are encouraging consumers to shop early because of inflation this year, so discounts are starting early.”

The gold vermeil (sterling silver layered with 18k gold) earrings are ethically produced at a great price point, for one. Mom will love this pretty pair of on-trend freshwater pearl earrings to elevate everyday looks.

Artist Zoe Tang’s terrarium soy candles are so impressive that Mom might not want to burn them! The detailed, hand-poured cacti candles, available in small or large sizes from Uncommon Goods, smell like pine and vanilla. The equally delicate poppy candle features a jasmine and white tea scent. Both styles feature a cork lid on the glass jar.

$125 at QVC

These Lucie mule slippers are a versatile and cozy winter gift. Their water-resistant wool-blend uppers keep feet dry and warm, and the lightweight rubber sole means these house shoes can go outdoors.

Ramhold predicts that cozy gifts like slippers, robes, and pajamas will be popular this holiday season, so these Danskos are right on trend. “The more luxurious they feel, the better — and the more likely they'll be to use them.”
