Great Gift Ideas For Mom

Nov 28, 2007
Holiday shopping may be fun, however, knowing what the best gift to give to your mom could be quite a challenge at times. This year might be different from all the rest, in that mom may want gifts that are not as typical.

Remember when you were a kid, you made mom a card and dad bought the gift? Well the internet has given new meaning to buying mom her holiday gift. No longer do you have to depend on dad to go out and do the shopping. The internet has given us the ability to explore numerous stores without having to leave the house.

Of course typical gifts for mom have ranged from clothing to kitchen items. Well those may be still really great gifts for mom this season. However, consider adding a few more gift items. For example, jewelry especially diamonds are always one of the best gifts for any woman, let alone mom. She will always like to be reminded she is well loved and not expected to be the housewife of the 50s. She will not only be surprised by your gift she has the opportunity to show it off at work or out and about. A woman cannot take oven mitts to the office.

Another piece of jewelry that might interest mom is something with her birthstone. These days lots of jewelers are making necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings out of every type of stone. Maybe get her a matching set (your brother, sister, or dad can contribute a piece) that would look perfect on mom this holiday season.

One last item in the jewelry category that might appeal to mom is a watch. Being on time is important and what a better way to make sure she is by giving her a beautiful time piece. She can be on time and look beautiful with a lovely watch around her wrist, bringing fashion and practicality together. Telling time just got more beautiful on the arm of mom.

Electronics no longer belong just to dad. Now mom can get in on the fun.

As everyone knows music is pretty important in today's world. We want to listen everywhere we go and with the technology that is available we now can. Get mom her own IPOD or MP3 Player so that she can enjoy music while driving, working out, cooking or cleaning.

The digital era has made life easier in capturing family moments. This holiday give mom the gift of a digital camera or Camcorder. She can capture life's precious moments, email them out, order pictures online or plug in directly to the television to see what was recorded.

Another great gift idea this season for mom is a GPS system. More and more moms are taking the responsibility of schlepping their kids around from ones friend's house to another, to the game or museum. While they may not be afraid to ask for directions, they can get to where they need to go this holiday season without having to leave the warmth and safety of their car. Also, this gift serves the whole family by making sure they get to their destination quickly and safely.

Women typically have a pretty large closet of clothes. Mom can never get too bored with fashion and accessories. No longer do you have to give the ole sweater to mom. There are plenty of other options, maybe some work out clothes. She can enjoy your gift while walking, running or doing yoga. Also, winter is here and maybe mom can use an upgrade for her outer wear. These days you don't have to sacrifice style for warmth. There are plenty of clothes that are made with thinner, yet warmer material. Mom can look great on the slopes or out hiking in the mountains. Your gift of clothes will serve as not only a great gift, but one that is useful too!

As far as accessories, try finding that new purse or wallet. You can even rent them for a day. Give mom the gift of that new Louis Vuitton purse for a day! I am sure she will revel in all the attention she will get from having it on her shoulder. Another accessory is of course SHOES! One can never have enough to go with every outfit. Check out online gift cards to your mom's favorite shoe store. Or maybe take her shopping for shoes and surprise her by paying for them!

These are all great suggestions of wonderful gifts to get mom. They will be enjoyable, useful and available online. I am sure that during this holiday season the gift mom will love the most is the time she has with her family!
