Christmas Gift Ideas for Moms

Christmas Gift Ideas

This is my list of ideas for MOMS! Moms always come last, huh?  I meant to have this list updated over a week ago but life got in the way.  In case you missed my other posts, here are links: Gift Ideas for Tots, Preschoolers, & Boys. I link to everything where I find the best online price {most of the time it is Amazon}. Most links are affiliate links, some are not {if I am not affiliated with the particular company}. If you purchase anything through an affiliate link, you give back a percentage to our family…thanks!

Little Stuff

  • Made On Hard Lotion ~ we use the hard lotion bars, goat milk soap, and chapstick. They have awesome gift sets available too! My son and my husband save their dry skin with these bars!
  • Easy Lunchboxes ~ I LOVE these things. Ask for 2 sets just to be safe! We use them in and out of the house. See my original review here.
  • The Vintage Pearl ~ I still wear my necklace every day and it is my absolute favorite.

  Gadgets

  • Laminator {everyone knows how much I love this, right?} I use these pouches.
  • iPod Dock {we use ours for school, we have this exact one but got ours at Target, it’s a bit pricey (it was a gift) but I bet a less pricey model would be equally as wonderful!}
  • Label Maker {don’t know how I lived so long without one-got ours and get our refills at Costco}

The BIG Gift {just in case Santa still visits any of you}

iPad  The best price I have seen for iPads is straight from Apple’s site, we have a refurbished iPad 2 and got it for $349.  The refurbished stock varies, so you have to check back to get what you want!

  • iPad Case ~ if you have kids, I definitely recommend a sturdy protective case.  We have the Trident Kraken II and my husband recently got the Otterbox Defender {he needed one with a stand for his school}, and he loves it! I get asked about our warranty a lot, we use SquareTrade.
  • iTunes Giftcard ~ Looking for ideas for your kids to put on your new ipad?

Canon Digital Rebel {I personally own the 40D, but the rebel is the best starter dSLR} I get asked a lot about which model of Rebel is best. Honestly-if this is $your first dSLR, the lower priced model is great. If you can afford the higher priced model-go for it. BUT-it is not necessary. That is my personal opinion and I know others may disagree. I say the price difference isn’t worth it unless you have future professional plans-and then you’d more than likely move beyond a Rebel anyway. I don’t own either but have seen both and used older models of both.

Photography Stuff…

  • 50mm lens {if you like the blurred background and the ability to shoot in lower light without a flash, you want this lens!}
  • See all of my photography info here in my Behind the Scenes ~ Photography post
  • A great photography book is: Better Photo Basics, I have a few and this one is my favorite for beginners.
  • A Light Scoop is an inexpensive way to soften fill flash light indoors, I have one and use it in my schoolroom for most of my blog photos that are taken indoors.
  • Vitamix ~ I got mine from Costco about a year ago and I can’t believe I waited so long!  We use it almost daily, mostly to make healthy smoothies.  It is about the only way I can ensure green veggies get into Ladybug! Here’s a post sharing what I usually put in our green smoothies.
  • Keurig Since my husband and I like different coffee, a Keurig has been a lifesaver!  This is our 2nd one, the first one lasted about 2 years.  We upgraded to the deluxe model and got it along with a bunch of K Cups at Costco a few months ago for 149.99.
  • Dyson Vacuum {we own this exact one, the DC25 and we ordered ours from Amazon about two years ago. We LOVE it and yes it is all that. I hesitated for years to spend the $$ but I am so glad we saved up and finally got it!}
  • Projector ~ we got this for our schoolroom and watch all of our school PowerPoint shows on it, it also shows our Wii and DVD player. It is wonderful!
