Your mom is probably the most important person in your life. Since your happiness matters a lot to your mom, her happiness should also be your top priority in your life. In any case, she’s really done a lot for you ever since you took up space in her belly. And what better way to appreciate all that than to get her a thoughtful gift for Christmas? These gift ideas are sure to put a smile on your mom.
Put Together a Picture Collage
Your mom has been around for quite a while. She’s had lots of experiences but is always too busy to reminisce on the good times she’s had. Creating a picture collage is a great way of reminding her of all the great times she’s had in her life. To do this, you just need to sneak around and steal some of her pictures from her childhood, through her teenage and possibly into college. To make it extra attractive, have the pictures flow in correct chronology, up until today. Your mom is sure to appreciate this Christmas gift.
‘Best Mom in The World’ T-shirt
This works even better if you have siblings. Just get yourselves to all wear customized t-shirts saying your mom is ‘the best mom in the world’. If you feel like that will be shouting too much, you can put it on jewelry, like a chain, and give it to her. If you match the color and design to what she likes, she is sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness. Although this could end up being really expensive, it is a sure way to make your mother happy on a special day.
Your mother likes words (all women do). A gift card is your opportunity to artistically tell your mom how important she is to you, and how much you appreciate having her as your mother. You may get tempted to copy some lyrics of a song you heard. While you may not really be a great artist, most mothers will appreciate your own original work in showing her how much you love her.
Get Her an Embroidery and Sewing Machine
Mothers like to sew. Mothers like design and art. Your first sweater was probably sewn by your own mother. Getting her one of these machines would be great for her, and very thoughtful of you. However, you should also consider the age of your mother. Don’t get a very complex machine for your aging mother. She’ll give up before she can even learn how to sew with it. A younger mother will appreciate the ease and time-saving capacity of newer machines. Also, try to consult the vendors of the machine for specifics before you go ahead and buy one. Make sure the machine can do something your mom would like to do. Otherwise, it might be a lot of money spent on a machine that won’t be used at all.

Polish Her Looks
It doesn’t matter whether your mother is clocking her 70’s; women like to look good and feel good about themselves. The problem is that mothers get too busy sometimes, that they hardly have a moment to polish their nails or even buy skin beauty products. You can make your mom feel better by getting her to look good. Take her to get a pedicure and a manicure, some nice nail art and a nice hairstyle. If you can stretch your budget, you should also get her nice smelling perfume.
Get Her to Relax and Unwind
Your mom has been working so hard to get you where you are. Get rid of all the fatigue accumulated over the years by paying for a massage. You can take her to a spa where she can relax and get a nice massage.
Make Her a Meal
What’s your mom’s favorite meal? Spaghetti? Rice and beef stew? Whatever it is, make it or have it made for her on this special day. If you can make the meal yourself, it will be much better. But if you can’t, now worries- there are many people on standby who can come over to make the meal for you. You can even get a friend to come over and help you cook if you doubt your cooking skills. She’s your mother; worth every bit of effort.
Take Her to the Movies
When is the last time your mom went to the cinema? Well, it doesn’t even matter. Your mom will probably enjoy a night out watching movies with her kids.
You probably know when your mom attended college. That’s when she was in on all parties (if she used to love parties). That’s also probably when she met your daddy or just a few years after college. You can help bring back her college memories, and her memories of meeting your dad, by playing some jams from the period. If she grew up in the 70’s, she was probably in on soul music. Everyone in the 80’s and 90’s loved Michael Jackson’s pop music. You probably know what music your mom used to fancy back in her day. Go ahead and create a playlist for her, and let her listen to whatever volume she sees is okay.
Everyone loves to travel. We just forget to treat ourselves most of the time. Your mom is also probably too distracted to remember to travel once in a while. You can fix this by planning a trip for her. Where to? Wherever she likes. Get the travel tickets ready, and the hotels paid for. If you think it’s better, you can go with her. Otherwise, it can also be the time for her to relax and have some ‘me-time’.
One of these gifts is sure to be the perfect Christmas gifts for your mom. Just check and recheck your budget and see which one fits best. Also, your mom is more likely to appreciate a gift or experience she has not had in a long while.
