What to Get Your Mom for Christmas…
1) Christmas Gifts for Moms Who Like to Garden
If your mom is into gardening, then gardening tools and flower bulbs arranged in decorative baskets make good Christmas gifts.
Growing a thriving flower garden is something that most gardeners relish. Of course they’ll need the right tools for the job and something like this Bond 6930 Pink 5 Piece Garden Tool Bag, would probably go down really well. Assuming your mom likes pink…
This gardening set is pretty special. All purchases help support the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
So, you’re not only buying your mom a pretty looking Christmas gift, but you’re supporting a good cause too!
To add to this gift, consider picking up the Bond 6927 Extra Soft Kneeling Cushion. And don’t forget the gardening gloves.
Patio furniture and flower boxes also make great gifts for your mom at Christmas.
To make your furniture gift even more special, you can buy tools or a project kit that will allow mom to build something she’s always wanted. Something like a gazebo or a gardening shed.
You could turn it into a fun project for just the two of you.
Yes a gazebo can be an expensive gift, but it’s a present your gardening mom will really appreciate. She’ll also love the added bonus of having you around for the time it takes to complete the project.
Plants always go down well as good Christmas gifts for mom. You can order a wide variety of plants online, like olive trees, which are aptly known as a symbol of peace. Or you can opt for a banana plant or flowers that you know she loves.
Bonsai trees are cute gifts to get your mom for Christmas.
If your mom already has a stunning flower garden that she cares for faithfully, consider getting some indoor plants for her or something a little special to brighten up her porch.
There are plenty of colorful, decorative planters such as the Dale Tiffany PA500199 Pasque Flower Decorative Pot or the popular Jade Planters Set (seen below), which has three planters in the set.
There are also rectangle planters like the elegant looking Wald Imports Rectangular Wood Pot Cover with Embossed Decorative Design, which is well worth taking a look at.
For green fingered moms, gardening and spending time with you is the best Christmas gift you can give.
2) Tech and Gadget Gifts for Mom
What Do I Get Mom for Christmas? Try a Cool New Gadget
Does your mom get a kick out of electronic gadgetry?
Maybe it’s time to get her that new laptop she’s been secretly eyeing up.
I don’t need to tell you how awesome it would be to surprise your mom with a new laptop.
Whether she needs one for work, school or play, a laptop is like the queen of hi-tech and is one gift that will be very gratefully appreciated.
Dell is one of the brands that’s been around in the electronic world for quite some time and has a stellar reputation.
The Inspiron 15RN i15RV 15.6-Inch model has a lot of perks that your mom would really love. Not only is it a good looking laptop, it’s easy to use, speedy to operate and lightweight, making it easy to carry.
The Toshiba NB505-N508BL 10.1-Inch has been on the market for a few years and is a simple low spec notebook, but it has a lot of features mom will enjoy.
Things like a really cool media controller, which will let her use a simple drag and drop feature to launch her entertainment favorites. It’s also easy on the budget too.
If you do end up getting mom a laptop for Christmas, don’t forget to get a nice laptop case to go with it.
Don’t go for those boring looking bland cases, get her something that’s as lively and as vibrant as she is.
The Laurex 1775BS 17-Inch Laptop Sleeve Case Bag with Handle and Shoulder Strap (pictured below) is a popular gift item with a beautiful orchid design on the front. It’s available in black and red.
A portable vehicle GPS system wouldn’t break the bank as a gift for your mom. It would also ensure mom never gets lost when she’s driving around town.
I know the GPS we got for my mom a few years back was a welcome gift and it’s something that mom uses daily.
Another cool gadget gift idea comes in the form of a TV set! Everyone’s switching to HDTV and Blu Ray technology these days.
Does your mom have this yet? If not, why not upgrade her set so that she can watch all of her favorite shows in high definition. Give her a gift certificate so that she can order some of her favorite Blue Ray discs, too.
If your Mom is an avid reader, there’s probably room in her life for the new Kindle.
She’ll be able to instantly download lots of affordable new books that she can read anywhere. That’s the beauty of a Kindle. Once you’ve invested in the device, books work out cheaper than paperbacks and hardbacks… pretty much in most cases.
You’ll be helping your mom save money in the long run as well as getting her one of the best Christmas gifts for 2013.
3) Traditional Christmas Gift Ideas for Moms
What to Get Mom for Christmas This Year
Still wondering what to get your mom for Christmas?
OK, so maybe you want something which is more of a traditional Christmas gift for your mom. I’ve got those covered too.
Moms love getting traditional Christmas presents because they’re usually the kind of things that are easy for their loved ones to figure out and don’t involved too much of an expense.
If your mom is anything like mine, then she’ll be concerned about you spending too much money on your gift.
Perfume is always a great hit at Christmas, but instead of buying a single fragrance, why not buy a perfume gift set.
There are some awesome sets that include the fragrance, plus some bath and body items too.
Some of these perfume gift sets for mom even include luxury items such as jewelry.
Speaking of jewelry gifts for mom, jeweled trinket boxes make great gifts to give to mother. There are also jewelry armoires that come in solid wood with beautiful decorations like flowers handpainted across them.
You might even surprise your mom by placing a beautiful bracelet, pair of earrings, or necklace inside.
How about a bathrobe?
You can find plush microfiber robes that have the most amazing feel to them, or you can choose to stick to a traditional terrycloth robe if that’s what she’ll prefer.
Kitchen appliances are traditional gifts that we often love to give to our moms. Think about getting something that makes life that little bit easier, like a programmable slow cooker or standing mixer.
Take this Hamilton Beach Programmable Slow Cooker for example, it’s one of the best sellers on Amazon.com in it’s category, with several verified reviewers giving this a 5 out of 5 star rating.
