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.
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.”
Stanley’s Adventure Quencher travel tumbler has quite the fanbase, and it’s easy to see why. Over 2,500 glowing Amazon reviews note this travel mug’s great features, from keeping beverages cold (or hot) to fitting snugly in car cup holders, to its durability. And of course, it’s BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Available in a rainbow of lovely colors.
If Mom enjoys a nice glass of wine, she might like this BruMate set, which includes a triple-insulated 25 oz. wine canteen and two 14 oz. wine tumblers. The perfect pieces for picnics, camping, or just relaxing in the yard, you can choose from 18 different styles including iridescent Dark Aura Onyx Leopard or a bold mountain silhouette.
Gift mom something to cozy up in this winter. Barefoot Dreams has long been a beloved loungewear brand among moms, and its CozyChic robe is especially popular for its delightfully fluffy feel. Available in eight colors, the cozy robe delivers a little daily luxury, and who wouldn’t love that? “The comfiest robe ever,” writes one happy customer.
Rifle Paper Co. is known for its charming floral designs, and this 2023 planner is no different. It’s a handy little softcover volume – the spiral binding means the planner can lay flat. The monthly and weekly views include space for notes, and there are also pockets for storage and a list for celebrations.
Gift mom a luxurious sweater that she can cozy up in this winter. Everlane’s ReCashmere Oversized Turtleneck comes in four rich colors (Black, Bright Navy, Kambaa Green, and Light Camel) and features a modern, relaxed fit. But maybe the coolest thing? It’s made from recycled cashmere and wool. It sure to become a staple in Mom's wardrobe.
Vahdam’s chai tea trio – included in Oprah’s Favorite Things — includes deliciously spicy loose-leaf blends, packaged in a festive holiday box. If the mom on your list is discerning about her tea, this great gift will surely be appreciated. “The tea was clean in the mouth, very delicate, slightly floral and sweet, with no unpleasant aftertaste,” writes one happy Amazon reviewer.
The new Jo Malone London Holiday Cologne Collection includes five delightful mini fragrances (0.3 ounces each) wrapped up in a pretty gift box. Mom will love trying them all: English Pear & Freesia; Wild Bluebell; Wood Sage & Sea Salt; Lime Basil & Mandarin; Blackberry & Bay. The scents can be worn alone or layered for a more custom fragrance.
Jiggy’s Tinsel Time puzzle is a colorful, modern Christmas gift that’s sure to delight any puzzle aficionado. By Spanish artist Ana Hard, the 450-piece puzzle comes in a glass jar with a tube of puzzle glue, a glue tool and a bonus print of the art. If you want to amp up your thoughtful gift, “Consider gifting a puzzle mat that they can roll their work up into instead of leaving it out for pets to possibly destroy or pieces to get lost,” says Ramhold.
Brand-new this season, the Ninja Espresso & Coffee Barista System can brew single-serve beverages, carafes of coffee, iced coffee, espresso, and more. The built-in milk frother adds a special touch to lattes, flat whites and more. Other features include a capsule storage bin and an adjustable cup tray.
Rihanna’s cosmetic brand Fenty is churning out the hits. The new product Skin Butta Drop Gold Shimmer Whipped Oil Body Cream is going to be a holiday favorite, thanks to its shimmery sheen. It even has a subtle cinnamon scent! And the gold shimmer is a limited edition of the lotion, so stock up now.
Barefoot Dreams is known for its soft, cozy products, and its 45" x 60" throw blanket certainly lives up to the brand’s reputation. “I’m on my third Barefoot Dreams blanket,” writes a happy customer, ”I’m obsessed. This new checkered print is SO GOOD!” Available in gray, blue, and cream, so there's one to blend in with her decor.
Like all of Our Place’s popular kitchen products, the Oven Pan is a versatile piece. Use it in the oven or as a griddle on the stovetop. A reusable oven mat (that replaces parchment paper) is included, which is a nice touch. Available in seven chic colors, including Sage (pictured), Blue Salt, and Lavender.
Treat mom to a fun-sized burlap-wrapped bouquet; it makes a celebratory and vibrant gift. A seasonal bouquet of 15 fresh stems is welcome any time of year and we love the colorful, lush options from Farmgirl Flowers. “The flowers always show up exactly like the photos on their website, unlike competitors,” writes a satisfied customer.
The Champagne Dreams gift box from Knack includes a variety of little luxuries to spoil mom. Champagne flutes, a champagne-shaped candle, matches, a cocktail kit, and Sugarfina Champagne gummy bears are tucked into a gift box complete with a card. A gift box is an ideal present for a long-distance mom.
You Already Have the Answers gratitude journal is new from comic and TV writer Amanda Deibert, who provides 365 daily prompts for moms to ponder. It’s humorous and whimsical while inspiring discovery and gratitude — the best gift for the mom who relaxes through journaling. It’s a convenient way to get some self-care.
Impress mom with a cool classic bag: the Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote. The water-resistant nylon tote features leather trim and a convenient interior pocket. This tote bag conveys understated luxury, but it’s also very practical. There’s plenty of room for all Mom’s daily items, kid gear, computer, or craft supplies, and it folds flat for easy storage.
A classic board game, Scrabble is the perfect holiday activity. If Mom is a fan of the word game, gift her this deluxe edition, featuring a wheeled gameboard that turns to each player and a carry case to store all the pieces. Over 3,700 excellent Amazon reviews prove this game’s staying power.
Games and puzzles are a solid gifting option this year: “Winter is already being forecast to be pretty brutal in some areas, so gifts that will cater to homebodies are going to be big this year,” Ramhold says.
Holiday coffee varieties will delight any java-jonesing mater. The 12 Mornings of Coffee Advent Calendar features 12 different curated holiday blends (choose beans or freshly ground) from top U.S. coffee roasters in a storybook-themed package. And there’s plenty to share: each daily variety contains enough for a pot of coffee.
The Amazfit Band 5 includes all the technology Mom could want for fitness tracking. Amazon Alexa is built into this tracker, and mom can ask about the weather, set timers and alarms, control smart devices, and more.

The Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag is a hot commodity – it’s been called the season’s most coveted accessory — so it makes a great holiday gift idea. Water-repellent fabric and interior and exterior pockets mean this fanny pack is versatile – wear it to work out or to go out on the town. "The design is perfection,” writes one reviewer. The only problem? It often sells out, so keep an eye on the site.
This iconic countertop gem is lighter and smaller than other options but still has a nice-sized 3.5-quart stainless steel bowl. There are 10 speeds for various types of mixing, and a flex edge beater, coated dough cook and six-wire whip are included. Available in nine colors.

Over 10,000 five-star fans on Amazon attest that this Shiatsu massage cushion delivers. Mom can adjust the intensity of the kneading massage by adding or removing the back padding and target tense areas. There's also the option of heat and a vibrating seat.
After refrigerating these stones, gently place them on or below tired, puffy eyes, to help undo too many hours of screens, keeping eyes on kiddos or just being awake. These babies can even combat the itchiness that seasonal allergies bring.
