Moms can be tricky to shop for! Whether you’re looking for gift ideas to put on your own list, or you’re trying to find the perfect gift for your mom, we polled 60,000 moms in our IG community. Here’s a list of the most common things we’re asking for this holiday season. Maybe you’ll find a special Christmas gift for mama in our list, too!
Nontoxic and eco-friendly gifts
Brands we love include Fatco (their cleansing oil makes washing your face at night a self-care ritual!), Primally Pure (their all-natural deodorant actually works!) , and we’ve heard a lot of good things about Honest Beauty’s mascara! For a sweet little stocking stuffer, try Burt’s Bees tinted chapsticks. Perfect for adding moisture and a bit of color to lips.
Many families are making the switch to nontoxic pots and pans as well. If you’re wanting to splurge, a Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron Dutch Oven is a classic choice. Starting off small? Amazon Basics has a nice cast-iron skillet for under $15! If mom wants to go green for this Christmas, consider buying her a set of reusable produce bags so she can ditch the plastic ones at the grocery store. A set of stainless steel straws is also a great choice!
Health and Fitness-related gifts
Topping the list for lots of moms is an Apple Watch or a Fitbit to track workouts and more! A yoga bolster or set of yoga blocks is a nice way to support mom’s home practice. You could always find out where mom works out and get her a gift card that she can put toward her next month or membership package! If mama loves cookbooks, get her Whole30 Friends and Family, the newest cookbook from Melissa Urban! Lastly, we think a membership to our pregnancy program would make a pretty fantastic gift for a newly pregnant mama.
Self care gifts
You’d be hard pressed to find a mama who wouldn’t enjoy a gift certificate for her favorite form of self care. Whether that be a massage, mani/pedi, facial, or music/dance lessons, everyone loves the ability to splurge on themselves. If mama is pregnant, you could spend some time researching the best prenatal massage in your area, to make sure she is taken care of by a practitioner that feels comfortable working with pregnant women.
