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:

Christmas gift ideas for mom: I run on chocolate, grace and Jesus shirt
Christmas gift ideas for mom: Mom with grace T-shirt
Christmas gift ideas for mom: World's Best Mom shirt
Christmas gift ideas for mom: Blessed beyond measure shirt
Christmas gift ideas for mom: Mom life is the best life shirt

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

Denim mama bear hat

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!

Mom bracelet
Mother and child birthstone necklace
Options for 1 to 5 children
Mother and daughter necklace that also comes in a bracelet
Mother and daughter jewelry
Mama bear necklace that is customizable
Up to 5 baby bears

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!

"Bible promise for moms" by Heidi St. John
Color with mom: A 2-person coloring book
Connecting with grace is a faith-based mother and daughter shared journal.
"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!

The holiday season is fully upon us, which means most of us have Christmas shopping to get done. Some folks are already finished, which is awesome. I am not one of those folks, though! In fact, I think I’m farther behind than usual this year, but I’ll get there.

I’ve been hard at work coming up with holiday gift ideas for you over the last couple of weeks to help myself as well. But, I’m still just one person. I can’t come up with every gift idea ever. So, I turned to some fellow bloggers for their ideas as well — and they haven’t disappointed.

Coming up with unique Christmas gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list can be a challenge. And coming up with ideas for the people in your life who have everything is even more challenging. But there are some quirky, fun and practical gifts for pretty much everyone on your list that you can find without breaking the bank.

And, even better, these are all on Amazon, so you can order them and have them show up at your house with the click of a button. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

For almost anyone

I am a huge fan of stainless steel insulated tumbler cups. And I am also a huge fan of drinking with straws. I don’t like the stainless steel straws, though. These silicone straws not only work well and look good, but they’re also affordable and dishwasher safe. What’s not to love for only $5.99 for 10?

Unique Christmas gift ideas: silicone straws

Evidently this is called a pin art board. Who knew? No matter what you call it, I can’t think of anyone at any age who wouldn’t love playing with it. From preschoolers through adults, these things are just so much fun. They’re great for a desk, bookshelf or wherever you want to have something to do with your hands while you’re thinking. (Or wherever you want to occasionally gently smush your face and look at your profile!)

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Pin art board

Unless your friends and family live somewhere magical that it never rains, they could use an umbrella. These reverse inverted inside-out umbrellas are awesome! I’ve been using one for a few years and love how easy it is to put up and down as I’m getting in and out of my car. It’s my favorite. These come in 39 different colors and patterns.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: reverse inverted inside-out umbrellas

Everybody has a slew of pencils and pens that need organized whether it’s at home or at work or both! You might as well organize them in something fun and clever. Even better, this adorable elephant pen and pencil holder can hold writing utensils and a phone!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Elephant shaped phone and pencil holder

If you think just a device holder would be a better unique Christmas gift idea for your friend, I’ve got you covered for that. I use mine all the time. In fact, I use it so much that it resides on my kitchen table. It is ideal for a Kindle. I love being able to prop up my Kindle Paperwhite and read during my lunch breaks. There are all sorts of fun options!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Dinosaur phone holder
Unique Christmas gift ideas: Dog phone stand
(comes in 6 different dog breeds)
Unique Christmas gift ideas: Ninja phone stand
(also has a horse option)

While you’re at it, you might as well add a fun charging cable to go with the phone stand. This 46-inch USB charging cable that lights up like Christmas lights.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: USB charging cable that lights up like Christmas lights

And then there is this 14-in-1 hammer tool. It looks cute because it looks like a little hammer, but it’s also incredibly functional and would be something pretty much anyone could use in one of their kitchen drawers.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: 14-in-1 hammer tool

For the person who loves retro

It pains me a bit to say that cassette tapes are retro, because they were such a big part of my childhood, but the truth is, they are. My kids were recently confounded by cassette tapes, in fact. This tape dispenser and pencil holder looks like a cassette tape and would be a fun, useful addition to any desktop — at home or at work. It’s definitely falls into the unique Christmas gift ideas category!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Tape dispenser and pencil holder that looks like a cassette tape

To go even more retro, check out these cute vinyl record drink coasters. I won’t even pretend that I also didn’t have a few records as a kid, because I certainly did. I’m a fan of fun coasters. If you’re going to use a coaster to be a responsible adult, you might as well have fun with it!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Vinyl record drink coasters

This Hemingway typewriter pencil holder just makes my heart happy. I’m not really sure why because I was only on the very tail end of using typewriters way back in the day, and then they were electric. But something about this just makes my old soul happy, and I’d bet you know someone who would agree!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Hemingway typewriter pencil holder

So not all of these literary themed socks are retro (there is an adorable pair for Harry Potter fans!), but my favorites are the socks that look like old-school library check-out cards. They come in white, pink, yellow, green, gray, multi-color and black. The socks are in two different sizes and there is even an ankle sock option for this design.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Library card print socks

For the person who can use kitchen stuff

I love having fun stuff in my kitchen, and I assume everyone else does, too! I found some great, unique Christmas gift ideas that I would enjoy having and get a kick out of.

Fun in the kitchen kicks off with making food. If you’ve got to measure out ingredients, you might as well have some fun measuring cups. These OXO Good Grips Measuring Beaker Sets are great for that. You get a set of seven. I love things that are useful AND fun!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Measuring beaker sets

Whether you’re buying a gift for a novice cook or someone who seldom cooks, everyone can use spatulas. They just seem to make any kitchen work a bit more fun and days brighter. There are a few available designs as single full-size spatulas, including a honey comb and bee, ladybug and leaves, the word “love” and various cooking-related sayings.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Honey comb and bee spatula

And if that doesn’t get you smiling while you cook, add on this smiley face turner, which is perfect for making pancakes on a weekend morning.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Smiley face turner

When it comes to unique Christmas gift ideas, this clever Nessie Ladle that looks like the Lock Ness monster would bring some fun to soup night!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Lock ness monster ladle

Staying with the theme of fun utensils, this dinosaur pasta server makes me smile. Anyone with kids would enjoy having this in their kitchen. Kids love pasta and dinos, so it’s a great combo. My son would think this was fabulous if I used it to serve him dinner! As a bonus, it’s dishwasher, top-rack safe.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Dinosaur pasta server

To keep the kitchen dino fun going, you have to know someone who would love this TriceraTaco Taco Holder. While it is adorable and cracks me up, it’s also helpful and useful. Hard taco eaters would love it. There’s also a TacoSaurus Rex for or a NachoSaurus snack and dip bowl set.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: TriceraTaco Taco Holder

This funny kitchen towel is a great option to go with the dino taco or nacho holders!

Unique Christmas gift ideas:  "Every now and then I fall apart" taco kitchen towel

An incredibly clever Christmas gift idea for any Star Wars fans on your list (and I’m sure there’s at least one if not more!) are these light saber chopsticks that actually light up. You can get two sets in red and blue or opt for 8-different color options for two sets. The 8-different color light saber chopsticks can also be bought as a single set or a set of four.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Light saber chopsticks

With all that fun going on in the kitchen, it’s going to have to be cleaned. While cleaning a kitchen isn’t the most fun job in the world, this adorable sponge holder makes me smile every time I see it! For only $12.90 and Prime One-Day, it’s a great gift for pretty much anyone on your list who has a kitchen!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Sponge holder shaped like a bed

We have been using a crumb eater to help clean off our table for the last year or so. Ours is just plain. My kids still like using it to clear off the table, but how much fun is this adorable ladybug mini tabletop vacuum?! It comes in red or green as a lady bug and red or black as a funny face. If you’ve got to clean up dust or crumbs, you should at least have fun with it. And, bonus for giving it to a family with kids, because they’ll find it fun for clean-up time. It’s a win-win!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Ladybug mini tabletop vacuum

Finally in kitchen, check out this Gracula garlic crusher. It’s functional in that it crushes garlic, but it’s funny and quirky in that it looks like a vampire.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Gracula garlic crusher

For a family

Coming up with a gift to give to a family can be a challenge sometimes, so I’ve got some great ideas for gifts that you can give as a family present and all family members would love!

This indoor electric smores maker is one of my favorite things we have! I can make smores year-round. I don’t have to worry about an open flame. And it really does toast the marshmallows just like I want them. My kids get a kick out of it, too. It’s a great family gift! It’s a unique Christmas gift idea that works well for families with small children, older children or no children. Who doesn’t love a smore?!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: indoor electric smores maker

Another great option is family conversation starter cards. They’re perfect for chats at dinnertime or even long rides in the car. Check out this set of 101 Conversation Starters for Families for or 88 Conversation Starters for Husbands and Wives.

For the coffee or tea lover

I don’t drink coffee or tea, but I love a fun mug nonetheless. I mean, I do drink hot chocolate. And it tastes better when it’s something fun to drink it out of! Mugs make a great gift for nearly any adult. They even make good pencil holders! You can give mugs solo or pair them with a coffee shop gift card or fill them with candy. There are lots of good options. And there are even more fun options when it comes to finding the right mug.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Unicorn mug with tea infuser
Unique Christmas gift ideas: Lllama in a Christmas sweater mug
Unique Christmas gift ideas: Bobba Fett mug

(If you go with the fishing mug for the angler in your life, consider pairing it with this fishing memory picture frame for a very nice — and meaningful — gift!)

For the kiddos

And, of course, we can’t forget unique Christmas gift ideas for kiddos. I’m making a priority this year to only buy things my kids will use. Of course they have given me ideas for bigger things they want. But I purposefully trying to add small gifts that they will actually play with or use versus just buying a bunch of cheap stuff that breaks quickly or is tossed aside. It was with that in mind that I looked for some interesting gifts kids would actually like.

The first one has to be this Little Live Pets Wraptile. I got this for my son. for Christmas this year. Then he inadvertently saw it (through no fault of his own), so I let him have it. He has played with it every single day ever since. He absolutely loves it! One of his favorite features is that he talk into a microphone on it and it will say what he said (in its voice). He also likes that the eyes change color based on what mood the creature is in, which is pretty neat.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Little Live Pets Wraptile

The Lego Creator sets are different from usual Legos. Each set builds three different things. My son has had various sets of them and loves each one. This Extreme Engines kit builds a speedboat, race car and hot rod. I like them also because they are reasonably priced (especially for Legos) and with three different design options, it just increases the value for your money.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Lego Creator Set Extreme Engines kit

For kiddos as young as 24 months, this dog grooming and doctor kit actually straps on like a backpack. It comes with an adorable white plush dog and a variety of accessories that any kiddo would enjoy playing with.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Dog grooming and doctor kit

This Ken Wildlife Vet playset is pretty darn cool. It comes with adorable animals as well for lots of pretend play fun!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Ken Wildlife vet playset

And as the mom of a 10-year-old girl who enjoys crafts, we have had our fair share of craft kits, jewelry making kits and the like. What I love most are crafts that the kiddo can actually use. This DIY water bottle fits that bill nicely. It comes with markers and and gemstones so your kiddo can personalize it.

Unique Christmas gift ideas: DIY Water bottle

When I was a kid, I had something very similar to this rainbow silk streamer and loved it! I made up so many routines and dances and flung that thing all over the place. It would be a hit with kids a wide array of ages. I can see my 10-year-old playing with it now but also from the time she was 2 or 3 as well!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Rainbow silk streamer

Continuing the stroll down memory lane leads us to a Light Bright. Remember those? It’s a great holiday gift idea for any kiddo. Mine have one they share that they got a couple of years ago. They both really like it. (And you can also order a refill pack if you have missing pegs!)

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Lite Brite

Games are also a great idea for Christmas gifts. If you’ve got little kiddos on your list, check out this list of five cheap games for small children the whole family will love. Then add to it a couple of classics that have been updated! First up is the classic hot potato game. Instead of someone having to play music and hit stop at random, the potato now plays music and stops on its own. How nice is that?!

Unique Christmas gift ideas: Hot potato game

Another update on a classic game is this Connect 4 Shots game. I got it for one of my nephews one year and my own kids the next. We have had fun with it. It has the same basic rules as the classic Connect 4 but with the twist of having to bounce balls into the holder instead of dropping in pieces. Our whole family enjoys it!

Christmas shopping starts pretty much after Thanksgiving, and Black Friday deals have changed to weeklong deals. No matter how you feel about it, Christmas shopping season has arrived and with it the need for a Christmas gift idea for everyone on your list.

15 Christmas gift ideas under $25 for almost everyone on your list Pinterest image

I’ve never enjoyed being out in the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping. It stresses me out. A lot. In fact, the week after Thanksgiving, I usually plan to avoid any in-person shopping.

However, I LOVE online shopping. I’d say at least 75 percent of my Christmas gifts are bought online. I love most being able to sit in my house and find all sorts of good deals and favorite products that I can order and have show up at my door.

But even with that said, I still have to know what to get and that can be the biggest challenge of all! Coming up with Christmas gift ideas can be difficult.

So, I’ve put together a list with some of my favorite products that would make great Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers for less than $25 each (most are well under $20). I’ve got something for pretty much everyone on your Christmas gift list from your mom to your kids’ teachers to your husband to your best friend.

And if you want to snag a couple of these items for yourself, go for it! They are all priced well to be easy on the budget.

For your best friend or mom (or yourself!)

For a year, I’ve been carrying this Befen Leather Wristlet Clutch Smartphone Crossbody Wallet in purple. And I love it! It holds my phone,  everything I’d carry in a wallet and then some. It has three sections inside plus an outside pocket. The inner sections are all covered with a zipper so nothing falls out and the outside pocket, which is designed for a cell phone, has a magnetic snap to keep it secure.

Inside, I use one section for my cash and primary cards. Another side holds my less used cards and some coupons. A third zippered section in the middle is great for my other stuff like medicine, nail clippers, hand cleaner, ink pen, bandaids and lipstick.

I started out carrying this purse inside a bigger one. But I soon realized this smaller purse works almost all of the time. Nowadays, I seldom carry a larger purse. The purse is my go-to, everyday purse. And even when I do take a larger purse for some reason, the purple one fits right down inside of it so I don’t have to switch everything in and out.

Of all the purses I’ve ever carried, this one is my favorite. It’s concise and functional. I’ve been carrying it for a year and it is showing only minimal wear, which is remarkable considering all I put it through. I also love that it’s so light I can wear it across my body all the time.

So when I’m grocery shopping, I don’t have to worry about wandering away from my cart and leaving my purse unattended, because it’s on me. It makes my achy fibromyalgia shoulders and back happy as well.

For your kids’ teachers (or pretty much anyone!)

I love stainless steel tumblers. I’m not sure love is a strong enough word, actually. I use one every single day. I love it for ice cold water, because that’s what I drink most, but these cups work well for anything hot or cold. And they’re the perfect Christmas gift idea for pretty much anyone, including your kiddos’ teachers, babysitter, postal carrier, hairdresser, best friend, mom and on and on the list goes. Really, who couldn’t use a cup that keeps their beverage hot or cold all day long?! When these cups first came out, they were mostly plain stainless steel, but now there are all sorts of fun options.

The first one I love is this BUILT 30-Ounce stainless steel tumbler in Rose Gold Glitter because I love sparkle! It comes in almost other colors, too, but the rose gold is gorgeous. And I am a fan of the 30-ounce size, because it holds enough to not have to constantly refill, but it’s not so huge it’s hard to carry.

If you’re gifting to someone who doesn’t like sparkle (which baffles me that such people exist!), check out these cool 30-ounce Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumblers in a wide array of prints and color options. I love the Starry Night one, but there are colors and prints that would work for any gender and all sorts of interests.

For your baking friend

Honestly, I don’t buy many cookbooks any more because of the plethora of recipes online. I love Pinterest for organizing them! However, after reading so many of the Hannah Swensen cozy mystery books by Joanne Fluke (which I recommend if you are looking for easy, fun books with intrigue), I kept wanting to try the recipes included. The main character in the series owns a cookie shop and there are all sorts of yummy recipes as a result. As the series progresses, the recipes go beyond cookies to breads, cakes, pies and savory dishes as well. I decided I might as well just buy the Lake Eden Cookbook. I’m glad I did.

I’ve used multiple recipes from it and even found my favorite ever chocolate cake recipe in its pages. It is one cake I gladly make from scratch because it’s easy and so scrumptious. You don’t have to be a reader of the book series to appreciate the recipes. The cookbook has some text written about the characters, but I’ve never read it! (And I enjoy the series.) I just really like the recipes most. The cookbook is basically compiled like it’s from a variety of small-town folks who appreciate good, filling dishes that don’t use a huge amount of ingredients or things that are hard to find. It’s practical and also has very detailed directions for each recipe.

And if you feel like going further with this Christmas gift idea, add some nonstick Rachael Ray bakeware like I told you about in the pumpkin bread recipe would go well with the cookbook. While an entire set of the bakeware starts around $40, you can get a 9×13 rectangle pan or a set of 3 cookie pans (these cost more than $20 by 99-cents) for less.

For your fellow mom (or dad!) friend

Can we all just agree that kids are messy eaters? We are constantly battling crumbs at our house. At 5 and 9, my kids are old enough to get in on the action with sweeping the floor and wiping down the table as part of their chores. A couple of months back, my husband ordered up a mini vacuum that’s made crumb clean-up easier. It sweeps up crumbs from the table and is perfect for little hands to use! It eliminates the struggle of trying to wipe crumbs from the table into your hands to carry to the trashcan. I have trouble with that myself sometimes; my kids struggle even more.

This little vacuum, however, works well. We use it on our kitchen table and chairs. We got a new table and chair set a few months ago when we moved, but the bristles are soft enough that it doesn’t leave any scratches or marks on my table, which was important to me, too. Any parent with kids would love this! And being able to use a gadget helps the kids get more excited about helping with clean-up.

For your geek or gamer friend (or husband)

I’m going to be honest and tell you this is on my wish list for Christmas and may end up being something I order for my husband (here’s hoping he misses this post!). I know we’d both love either one of these fun coaster sets. I just have to decide which one. 

First are the Paladone Nintendo NES Cartridge Coasters. How cute are these?! They look like old school Nintendo cartridges that any kid from the 1980s would love. I kind of want to order them and see if I can blow into them to get them to work. (And if you understand why I’m saying that, this is totally something you should order!)

The other set of cool throwback coasters I found look like floppy disks. They are so cute! There are a few different option of these available, but I like this six pack of floppy disk coasters the most because they don’t have anything written on the label. You could totally use a Sharpie and customize the labels for yourself or just leave them blank. They come in more fun colors than I remember any of my floppy disks ever being!

For your husband, dad or brother

A couple of years ago, my husband first ordered a multi-tool to carry in his pocket. When that one broke, he ordered this Gerber Splice Pocket Tool. It comes in handy all the time. He uses it for all sorts of things from cutting down straws for our kids at restaurants to opening packages or other random tasks that come up. Men tend to like tools that have so many components and options and this one certainly does that. It’s a great Christmas gift idea for pretty much any guy on your list.

For your daughter or niece

When my daughter was almost 6, we got her ears pierced. Once she was able to start changing her earrings, we learned pretty quickly that anything not gold-plated made her ears break out in a rash. Both my mother-in-law and one of her sisters are the same way. They basically have an allergy to metals. We even tried the hypo-allergenic metals and silver-plated. All of them hurt her ears.

However, buying gold-plated jewelry for my then kindergarten-aged daughter to wear to school wasn’t something I had expected. I went in search of earrings she would like but also I wouldn’t have to stress about getting lost. Looking locally, I didn’t find a pair of gold-plated, girls’ earrings under $50, which seemed steep to me. I decided to check out Amazon and was so pleased to find a variety of gold-plated girls’ earrings for under $20. They make a nice gift for any age. These dangly, multi-colored flower earrings are one of my daughter’s favorite pairs that work well with different outfits. They are priced well for a stocking stuffer!

And just like her mama, my daughter loves sparkle. One of her other favorite pairs are these colorful hoops that are not too large and come in various colors. My daughter has these small hoop earrings in blue and wears them often. They are small enough to work for girls, yet large enough to work for women.

Another great find for girls is this unicorn tape dispenser. My daughter loves unicorns, which is why we got it for her. I knew she’d like the tape dispenser and use it, but I didn’t count on how much she would use it! It’s been a few months and she uses it at least a few times a week. It was definitely worth the price we paid and looks cute on her desk as well.

For your son or nephew

I’m not sure boys ever stop loving dinosaurs and fierce animals. I mean, they really are cool. My son loves dinos and wolves of any type! This Untamed Dire Wolf Fingerling is right up his alley. (My husband also thinks it’s pretty awesome.)

Another Christmas gift idea for boys (or girls!) of any age are these mesh squishy balls. My son first got one a few months ago. Our whole family liked it so much that I ordered a 12-pack and both my husband and I keep one at our desk. They work well to add into a gift or make great stocking stuffers. I’ve found them to be great to play with while I’m thinking or even while I’m listening to someone talk. I did accidentally pop one of these guys and slime oozed out, but so far neither my husband nor kids have done that, so I may have extra stress I’m working on! 🙂
