Last Spring I pulled together a list of Easter Basket Ideas that turned out rather well. With the holidays fast approaching I thought it might be a good idea to make a few new lists! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or just know someone with a December birthday, these lists are sure to help!
I’ve been searching for great gifts for the past few months. A few of these are also affiliate links or are products that were gifted to me to review at some time or another. Everything you see here represents gifts that I truly think a mom would love, and all opinions are my own! See my full disclaimer here.
I’m a mom, and I think I’m super easy to buy for. I love so many things, and I’m very easily amused. For our first Christmas together James got me a rubber unicorn head and a Harry Potter blanket. See? Easy. Of course at that point I wasn’t a mom, but you get the picture. Most moms (myself included) get all gooey over handmade, sentimental stuff. I’ve got a few items like that on my list, as well as some practical items.
Ladies, if you like this list, send it to your husband with a wink and a nudge!
A new bag!
I’m SUCH a bag lady. I can’t get enough bags, organizers, and backpacks. Sure, I carry the same 10$ Walmart purse every day, but I’ll swoon over a nicely made diaper bag with a hundred pockets. I also love big travel bags and purses for taking trips.
Here is a little list of some of my favorites that I’ve found on Instagram and around the web:
A leather backpack from Leatherfelt Goods– I simply adore this huge, gorgeous backpack made of the most gorgeous leather ever. It would make a wonderful weekend bag or a day to day diaper bag!
Ryla Pack- These backpack diaper bags are made specially for mom hustlers like you and me. They are stylish and effective and if you pre-order now, you get 40$ off retail and they will ship out at the end of November! Perfect for Christmas!
Carri Eight Diaper Bags–I adore the way these bags look, and the organization in them!!
Kinbuilt Bag– These diaper bags get the job done! They look so sturdy and functional, I know they would do everything I need them to do! There are TWENTY pockets so I would know I could take along all of the stuff I feel like we need. I’m also slightly in love with the heather grey color one!
A clutch from Emmy and I– I love the designs on these cute clutches! These are a great way for added organization in any diaper bag or purse! You could keep the most important items in here and grab it when you don’t want to lug around the entire diaper bag.

One of the cutest baskets ever
These baskets from Broots are seriously the cutest! Stuff a blanket in there and it would be a super cozy gift to give a mom who just wants to relax for a moment!

Wall art from Sleepy Bird Co.
If you have an on trend mama in your life, she will love these wall hangings from Sleepy Bird Co.!
Wine, and more wine. Or even beer if that’s up her alley. I wouldn’t mind getting a special treat in my stocking!
I can’t stop drooling over the pieces in Caitlyn Minimalist’s shop. I’ve been dying for a necklace, bracelet or ring with Leopold on it…hint hint, hubs…Caitlyn even offers jewellery made to look like a loved one’s handwriting!
A new camera
Do you have a mamarazzi in your midst? Maybe she needs a new camera! (I know I would love one) Check out this Canon Rebel Starter kit!
Check Amazon or her favorite store for some soft and comfy pajamas!
Gift Card Stocking Stuffers

Remember to add a personal touch to the gift card! Especially if that’s all you’re getting. We moms just want to know you’re thinking about us and put some effort/thought into our gifts 🙂
I hope this list helps you find a great gift for the mom in your life! Remember, as long as you put some heart into it, mom will love it! Be sure to check out my lists for dad, baby and toddler!
