Sometimes she needs a full purse to hit the town, but others, mom just needs to carry a few things with her, so bringing a full purse is more work than it's worth. Get mom a classy wristlet for those days where she's just not in the mood for the whole shebang. You can get this bag from Coach in four colors, and it comes highly recommended by hundreds of reviewers.
Dry shampoo is practically magic, and if your mom is a fan, this two-piece ornament from Bumble and bumble is the perfect stocking stuffer. It comes complete with a full-size of the Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo (to instantly clean and volumize) and a sample of the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer (to moisturize and defrizz). Buy one for your mom and then one to keep for yourself, too.
There’s no such thing as too much yarn. If Mom’s a knitter, she’ll never turn down high-quality skeins (a.k.a. yarn balls) from a top-notch brand like Darn Good Yarn. The company makes ethical yarn and provides sustainable jobs around the world, putting its mission first in all business practices. The yarn itself is cozy, comfy, and easy to work with. As an avid knitter (and Darn Good Yarn fan), I recommend picking up a few skeins of Darn Good Yarn’s multicolor options so mom can choose what she knits with the beautiful shades.
While moms may not always admit it, they love when their kids get personal when it comes to holiday presents. After all, who doesn't fancy the feeling of opening up a gift that you can clearly tell had a ton of thought and care put into it? It doesn't have to be anything expensive either: Simply think about your mom's lifestyle and her likes and dislikes, land on a budget for yourself, and go from there.
