Gifts for Mom

A Cricut machine! Shop cutting machine collection at Cricut.com
Cricut Maker Machine

For the crafty mama, a Cricut machine is awesome! I’ve made a couple decals for my husband and a couple iron-on images for a cousin. The Cricut machine is easy to use. You can find all kinds of tutorials for it, too. I’ll be making my daughter’s Thanksgiving tee and Christmas tee with it! Love this item!

Flannel Fleece Luxury Blanket

I’m currently snuggling with a cozy blanket. You can never have too many fuzzy blankets. They’re great for snuggling the kiddos and cozy once they’ve gone to bed.

Keeping warm!

Coffee or Soup Mug

Big enough for a bowl of soup or a big cup of coffee or tea! I’ve been on a hot tea kick recently, so this is a must for me! And the message on it is pretty cute, too!


Like I said, I’m on a tea kick right now. There are so many different options for tea and coffee. Know what the mama loves and get her more of that. I love chai tea right now. I’ve been trying a lot of different brands to find my favorite.

USDA Organic Lip Balm by Sky Organics

Organic lip balm?! Yes, please! I’m often considered a “crunchy” mama, so organic lip balm is a must for us. 6 different flavors are included in this set.

Relaxing Gifts for Mom!

URPOWER 2nd Version Essential Oil Diffuser

I have this item in my office. It is smaller than I thought it would be, but we love our essential oils. We now have a diffuser in three of our rooms.


We prefer Young Living oils over others. They do cost a little more money, though. Just make sure you are doing your research on whatever brand you decide to use. You can purchase Young Living oils on Amazon, but you can also find a Young Living consultant who sells them.

Women’s Fall Winter Scarf

I own three different blanket scarves and I love them! They are so warm and cozy for winter in Iowa. They can be worn with dresses or with jeans. I especially like how versatile they are.

Self-Care!

Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration

I’ve been focusing a lot on reflection and self-care recently, so a journal like this would be great for me. There are beautiful quotes and illustrations, as well as writing prompts that delve into learning more about yourself.

Bath Bombs Gift Set

Moms want a break sometimes. No better way to take a break than to sit in the bath with a nourishing bath bomb. This set has 12 varieties but all are sure to help Mama relax. Just remember, you have to give Mom the time to take a break.

Thank You Mom

This is a sweet gift for Mom, from kiddos. Being a mother is an often thankless job, so this book can help say all of the things you’ve forgotten to say over the years. It is sure to put a smile on her face.


Chocolates are always winners, for me at least. Find out what kind she likes and get her some of that. Then, buy her a little extra 🙂
