Coming up with Christmas gift ideas for mom can be challenging. Whether you’re buying for your own mom, your mother-in-law or even looking for gift ideas for yourself, figuring out what to ask for during the holiday season can be difficult.

I mean, my actual Christmas list would include things like: naptime, no laundry for a month, chocolate that doesn’t have sugar or calories, lazy days and food I didn’t plan, shop and make! I find it difficult to come up with gift ideas for myself many times, so I understand why my family can struggle.

Here’s the thing about Christmas and moms, though. We work really hard to make sure the holiday is festive and happy for everyone around us. Having thoughtful gifts under the tree for us is much appreciated. And these gift ideas do just that.

Mom apparel

Lots of mom apparel utilizes sarcastic humor. While that’s OK, I love more positive mom apparel. In fact, I created my own line of mom apparel on Zazzle filled with minimalist designs I love and a mix of sweet and humorous mom shirts. They come in a variety of colors and styles. Here are some of my favs:

And then there are these cute baseball style hats for moms that come in a variety of colors.

And don’t forget to keep her tootsies warm with these adorable mama bear slippers that come in various patterns and colors.

Mom jewelry

I’ve loved jewelry since I was a toddler, so my mind also goes to jewelry as a great mom gift. Every day I wear a ring that has my children’s names on it along with their birthstones. I also have a necklace of a mama bird with eggs that match my children’s birthstones that I got a few years ago for less than $20 and wear it a few times each week. It doesn’t have to be expensive jewelry to be meaningful and make a great gift. None of these options cost more than $35!

Books for moms

Books are also great Christmas gift ideas for mom. You can find a wide variety of books for moms. These are some great choices that moms will love!

"Jesus Calling for Moms" by Sarah Young
"Midnight Mom Devotional" by Becky Thompson and Susan K. Pitts

Sentimental sign gifts for mom

We moms enjoy being appreciated and loved, so sometimes a sentimental sign gift can be perfect. Check out these ideas:

Wooden plaque: "To the world you are a mom. To our family you are the world."
Customized sign with wedding date and children's birth dates
Wooden photo frame with string art that says, "You are the mom everyone wishes they had"
Wooden photo holder that says, "Home is where the mom is"
Customizable artwork that says, "Mom you are the piece that holds us together"

Photo gifts for mom

Finally, I have to include the idea of photo gifts, because I love them and I think most moms do. A few great gift ideas for photo gifts would be a gift certificate for a family photo session or a gift card to a favorite photo printing site like Shutterfly, Vistaprint or Snapfish.

Think about ornaments, desktop plaques, photo books, blankets, pillows and whatever else you think would be a hit. I’ve found these gifts also work really well for grandmas!
