Have any moms in your friends group? Here’s what to gift them this holiday season!
It’s that time of year again when you get the opportunity to show your friends how much you appreciate them. At a time when the focus tends to be on the kids, your mom friends will love the sentiment of having something just for them.
If you’ve been wondering what to get your best mom friends, look no further. Here are seven gift ideas that your mom friends will love (and so will you).
A Coffee or Tea Subscription
A lot of moms relate to one another over a love of caffeine in the morning. Support their habits with a coffee or tea sample subscription that allows them to try different blends from around the world. This is also a practical gift than ensures they won’t run out any time soon.
If a subscription service isn’t in the budget, grab them a special mug and a unique coffee blend you think they’ll enjoy. It’s a simple gift that goes a long way.
A Custom Shirt
Custom clothing is all the rage these days. Whether you opt for a local vinyl cutter or a high-quality printed shirt – click here to learn about custom printed shirts – rest assured the moms on your list will love it.
Choose something that speaks to them personally or alludes to a shared experience. Maybe it’s the moniker you and your friends go by when you head to playgroup or a pop culture reference that binds you together. Whether you opt for “Mother of Dragons” or “I believe in mythical creatures: mermaids, dragons, kids that listen…” it’s destined to become your friend’s new favorite clothing item.
A Trip to the Spa
If you think your friend could use a little “me time” hook them up with a trip to the spa. Get them a gift certificate for a pedicure, or facial, or contribute a set amount toward the service of their choosing.
Not that the gift-giving season is about buying something for yourself, but there’s no shame in booking a couple’s treatment for you and your bestie.
Free babysitting is the ultimate holiday gift. First and foremost, it costs nothing to offer. Secondly, it’s useful and so appreciated.
Create a few “free babysitting” coupons for your Mom friends to redeem when they need a night away and don’t want to splurge on a sitter. This will give them the freedom to book a date night with their significant other or get some much-needed time to themselves.
An Experience Together
Rather than doing a gift exchange, consider planning a shared experience with your mom friends. That way, instead of spending on gifts, you spend your money on time together – a gift that’s far more valuable than anything you could buy.
The experience can be as simple or elaborate as you want. Opt for dinner at your favorite boutique restaurant or plan a games night for January when the post-holiday blues hit.
The Gift of Warmth
You can’t go wrong with something warm and snuggly for your mom friends. Find something that feels like a warm hug on a cold day, that makes them think of you each time they need comfort.
Some warm favorites include:
- a blanket scarf
- a fleece throw
- reading socks
- handmade mittens
- comfortable pajamas
There’s nothing like curling up with something cozy at the end of a long day. Share the warmth with a gift that gives all winter long.
A Mommy Survival Kit
For a simple, DIY gift, create a mommy survival kit for your tribe of mamas. Your kit could include things like:
- hand wipes
- lip balm
- eye cream
Or anything else that comes to mind. It’s up to you to make it as personal or funny as you wish.
When it comes to giving your mom friends gifts, it’s often the thought that counts. They’ll appreciate the reminder that someone has their back through the joys and tribulations of motherhood.
