Shopping for Christmas is always stressful. Sometimes, the crowds, the expense of it all, and the question of what to give results in a major headache. And for the people you love most, it can be the hardest to know what to get them. It's a special kind of feeling when you nail that perfect gift for someone who means the world to you. So, when it comes to Christmas gifts for moms from daughters, the challenge is so, so very tough.
My mom is the perfect example. She hardly ever buys anything for herself, and when she does, it’s because she has to — meaning something of hers is falling apart and seriously needs to be replaced. She never asks for anything, and her answer to “What would you like?” or “Which do you prefer?” is always, “Whatever is fine, honey,” or a sincere, “I’ll love whatever you choose.” Like, that is so not helpful for my trillion Google tabs open trying to find the perfect gift.
But, like all moms who mean the world to us, she truly does deserve the best, and if I can afford to give it to her, you bet I will. Despite her attitude about loving whatever I’ll end up gifting to her (which, she truly means), it’ll be a jab at my ego if I don’t get it just right. So with a little digging, these items are sure to bring any amazing mother joy when opened on Christmas. Because, even though she has everything she thinks she needs, these sweet gifts will instantly put a smile on her face.
