best deep questions you need to ask your boyfriend

Confession: My boyfriend and I are really bad at going to restaurants and going on our phones.

I know, it's bad. We (I haha) are REALLY working on it. Last time I was visiting him (we're long distance) I ended up searching Pinterest for some really good questions that could spark interesting conversations.

Now, we've been dating for almost four years. We are really open with each other and I feel like there is nothing that hasn't been discussed. {READ: 5 Must-Know Ways To Make Sure Your Long Distance Relationship Lasts}

33 Insanely Cheap Christmas Decor We Spotted on Amazon

This post is all about cheap Christmas decor.

cheap christmas decorations

Finding cheap Christmas decor that looks expensive is not easy...like, I want to have a Kardashian level decorated apartment on a college student's budget.

I feel like anytime I walk into a store looking for holiday supplies I buy two things and leave spending $70 + dollars! 

Luckily, we've searched the internet and found the best cheap Christmas decor that will have your space looking Pinterest worthy without breaking the bank.

This post shows you the best cheap Christmas decor.

Best Cheap Christmas Decor:

1. Trendy Winter Pillows

cheap christmas decor

I love these pillows because they are Christmas and wintery without being TOO in your face. They're like the "trendy" version of Christmas pillows.

Plus, they are less than $20 which is a-m-a-z-i-n-g and will completely change the way your living room or bed looks.

2. Christmas Banner 

The perfect accessory for any Christmas party and will make for super cute Instagram pictures.

I love this because banners make big impact and are really cheap. They are arguably one of the best cheap Christmas decor that you can add.

3. Christmas Table Runner

Adding a table runner instantly will take your dining room table up a notch for Christmas decor. 

4. Mini Pine Trees

How adorable are these mini pine trees?! These are the perfect cheap Christmas decor to sprinkle around your house from anywhere like bathrooms to your candle setup.

I love how small and subtle these are but can add so much to an area this holiday season without costing a fortune!

5. Cheap (but cute) Christmas Ornaments

These ornaments are cheap but CUTE. Like, our favorite ones on Amazon and there are A LOT. Plus, they're shatterproof so win-win. 

6. Gold Snow Globe

Snow globes are such a Christmas decor MUST! This is insanely cheap and is so cute to decorate around the house.

7. Outdoor Christmas Banner

I know this is not for everyone but this is a twist on the basic outdoor decor for Christmas time. Instead of just decorating with lights this outdoor banner is such a fun twist and is so affordable.

It also makes a big statement with little effort required (which I know we can all appreciate that one). 

8. Pearl acorns

Um, who wouldn't want these girly and elegant decor acorns for a centerpiece this holiday season?!

Favorite way to use these is in a candle votive with the acorns being put all around the candle. 

9. Candy Cane Twinkle Lights

I recently saw a picture on Pinterest of this Christmas party these really cute friends threw and they had such an aesthetically pleasing set up!

They strung these lights on one of their walls and added pictures in between the stars and it looked cuteee.

10. Plaid Stockings 

You can't have Christmas without some Christmas stockings. These are cute options that are less than $14 for all four...I know, we can hardly believe it too. 

11. Scripted Christmas Pillow

I am a sucker for Christmas pillows!

I walk into Home goods and wind up spending $100 on pillows but that is NOT realistic and Amazon has so many adorable pillows for under $15 each!!!

This particular pillow is such a classic quote and will be great for any style in your home.

13. Tissue Paper Lanterns
14. Advent Calendar 

I have always wanted an advent calendar for the holiday season and this one on Amazon is super cheap and adorable.

15. Mini Christmas Tree

I want that perfectly decorated Christmas tree too but let's be real, those are like $500 PLUS all the ornaments. You can't get cheaper than this 4' Christmas tree and is the perfect size for your dorm room/apartment.

Right now, I am really into white or flocked trees and this tree would look so good with the ornaments I linked above.

16. Battery Operated Candles

If you're in a dorm room, these battery operated candles are the perfect way to add coziness to your room without being kicked out of the dorms ;).

If you are in an apartment or house and don't feel like lighting candles every night than this is also a great cheap Christmas decor idea.

17. Christmas Shower Curtain 

I'm going to be honest, I never really thought about adding a Christmas themed shower curtain but if you can get past all the cheesy ones, you can actually find some cute ones!

Also, I actually loled at the naked santa one. 

18. Funny coasters 

I am obsessed with these coasters for the holidays when you're entertaining.

I can guarantee all of your guests will get the message and LOVE these!

19. Christmas Inspired Placemats 

These placemats are really cute and come in a set of six so there will be enough for everyone to use!

20. Santa Hat Silverware Holders

A super cute way to add Christmas decor to your dining room area!

These are so cheap and add so much to a Christmas dinner party without spending a fortune.

22. Christmas Wreath

Wreaths for Christmas are an essential but they can be super expensive!

This wreath is on the more affordable side and is seriously so cute.

23. Santa Nutcracker 

Ah, the classic Nutcracker. This decor piece is super inexpensive and a great way to decorate your home.

24. Funny Christmas Wall Art

I LOVE Christmas Vacation and it's something I watch with my family every year.

I will for sure be purchasing this for my house because it is funny and reminds me of my family!

25. Fuzzy Tree Skirt

This fuzzy Christmas tree skirt is so adorable and trendy! And it's $12 which is amazzzingg.

26. Glitter Ornaments 
27. Christmas Kitchen Rug

This floor mat is a cute but easy way to accessorize your home this holiday season!

It is the perfect cheap touch to any home or party. 

28. Christmas Tree Cooler 

Ya know, for the alcohol this is an essential ;). Kidding, but this would be a cute and funny addition to a holiday party!

29. Wine Hugger 
30. Holiday Dish Towels 

These dish towels are EXACTLY what your kitchen needs for Christmas time.

If you are looking for a way to jazz up your home for the holidays then this funny dish towel set is perfect for you.

31. Christmas Sign

Okay, why aren't all signs this smart. The fact that this sign gives you something really cute to decorate with for fall AND Christmas is genius!!

32.  Christmas Berry Centerpiece

Christmas berries are such a classic for the Christmas time and this centerpiece is pretty for a really low price. I also think it would be way cuter in a white vase.

33. Pinecone Twinkle Lights 

These twinkle lights are the perfect holiday twist on regular generic twinkle lights!

I love how homey these feel and how much they can add to a space.

... and you can use these anywhere in your home since they're battery operated!

11. AirPods 

We're just going to assume that you already know how popular and what a great gift AirPods would be.

12. Weighted Blanket 

Case confirmed- a weighted blanket IS as good as people say they are.

39 Best College Graduation Gifts for Girls

This post is all about the best College Graduation Gifts for Girls.

college graduation gifts for girls

Graduating college is a BIG deal that deserves to be celebrated with a really freakin' good college graduation gifts for girls. 

I am a senior in college and will be graduating this spring so I went to all my graduating friends and we came up with a huge list of all the best graduation gifts that we would actually use.

You know how some high school graduation gifts you still haven't touched four years later?! Not these. These college graduation gifts will be used all the time and will remind the graduate how special they are to you.

These are the best College Graduation Gifts for Girls. 

Best College Graduation Gifts for Girls:

1. Nice Weekend Bag

Graduating means no more homework or studying on weekends! College graduates are going to be doing a lot more traveling and activities now that they have the time. 

This is a perfect college graduation gift for girls! Having a bag that's an in-between of a backpack and suitcase is perfect for any weekend activity (and something guaranteed to be used for YEARS!).

2. A Fun Cookbook

Now that the graduate is on their own, they are definitely going to want to try to learn to cook. What better way to learn to cook than from Chrissy Teigen? Yes, we are as obsessed with her as you are ;).

This cookbook is such a great gift for anyone that wants to make cooking fun. There are so many unique and yummy recipes! 

3. A Poster of Their College Town 

Graduating and leaving your college town behind can be hard. A cool poster of their college town is a perfect way to keep a little piece of college with you in your new home. 

Whether it's a map or a cool photo, this is a great gift for anyone that loves their college town! 

4. Coffee Maker 

For any college graduate that is going to start a 9-5 job, a coffee maker is essential. Going from sleeping in whenever you want to to an early morning wake up call is tough and caffeine is definitely going to be necessary. 

A nice coffee maker is something your college graduate will absolutely love and will USE. 

5. Fitness Tracker

Now that your graduate is done with college, they are going to have so much more free time! Why not use that extra time to do something active? 

Fitbits are a great gift because it is a watch and a fitness tracker in one. They encourage you to be more active and get out of your comfort zone. I love getting more steps in by going on walks and exploring! 

6. Amazon Prime Membership 

Becoming an adult means getting an Amazon Prime membership... obviously. Amazon is taking over the world and we're here for it. 

A Prime membership is a perfect gift for a college graduate because it is such a great thing to have once your out on your own but they might not want to spend money on right away. They will be so happy to receive this! 

This article shows you how you can gift an Amazon Prime Membership.

7. Business Card Holder

Once your out on your own, having a business card on you at all times is crucial. You never know who you might meet!

This card holder is so sleek and professional looking which is why I love it as a college graduation gift! It is also such a great gift that won't break the bank. 

8. Passport Holder

Okay how cute is this passport holder? A ton of college graduates travel before they start to work full time, so if that's the case, this is a perfect gift!

If your college graduate loves to travel, this is also a great gift! 

9. New Luggage

Once you graduate and have an actual income, you have much more time and money to travel. New luggage is the perfect graduation gift for the girl that loves to travel and is always on the go. 

This set is so cute! This luggage is simple but with the perfect touch of pink. 

10. A Frame with her Favorite College Photo 

An easy gift that won't break the bank is a nice frame with a favorite picture of the graduate and their college friends! This is such an easy college graduation gifts for girls but will mean so much to them. 

Moving away from your college friends is going to be tough so a photo to hang in their new home will be a great reminder of all the memories they had together the last 4 years. 

11. AirPods

Airpods are honestly a great gift for any occasion. You really don't know what you're missing out until you have them. Any graduate would be so excited to receive these as a gift! 

Whether its listening to podcasts on their commute to work, music while they grind or while they work out, Airpods are amazing for any time of the day. 

12. Monogrammed Planner 
college graduation gifts for girls

Staying organized is very important when transitioning to a new phase in life like graduating. A planner is a great gift to give especially for those that might be on a budget. 

Getting a customized planner gives a personal touch that will make this graduation gift even better! 

13. iPad

Is it just me or is an iPad such an adult thing to have? iPads are awesome for searching the web, watching a show, online shopping and so much more! 

If you're in the market for a more expensive graduation gift, this is it! 

14. Class Pass Membership

When moving to a new city, it's hard to know what kind of work out classes you are going to like. A ClassPass membership is a perfect way to encourage your college graduate to try out a variety of work out classes! 

This way they can find what they like and not have to worry about breaking the bank on drop-in prices at different work out places!  

15. An Instant Pot 

An Instant Pot just screams adult, doesn't it? While getting used to living on your own, an Instant Pot is a great way to get used to cooking for yourself and still eating really yummy meals. 

It makes cooking so easy and fast, while still loving the food you make. This is a perfect graduation gift for anyone that wants to cook a lot but doesn't want to invest a lot of time in it. 

16. A Nice Water Bottle 

A nice water bottle is a great way to encourage hydration which is great at any stage in life! 

I'm obsessed with Hydroflasks. They keep drinks cold (or hot) for sooo long so it's perfect to fill up before work and know that it will last the entire day. 

17. Cheese Board 

What says "adult" more than a cheese board? Nothing. This is the perfect graduation gift because it will really make your graduate feel like they are grown up. 

These are perfect for when they want to have friends over for appetizers and wine! 

18. Weighted Blanket 

Weighted Blankets are ALL the rage right now! They seriously make it feel like you’re sleeping with a hug around you.

It’s super comforting and guaranteed to help your sleep quality improve. This is especially great for graduates moving to a new city and maybe feeling homesick. Such a great gift! 

19. Badass / Adulting Books 

Starting a new career is a big deal. It is easy to feel like you have no idea what you're doing. Books like these are a great way to keep your college graduate feeling empowered and motivated! 

I love books about being a badass. It really makes me more motivated to live my best life and I'm sure you want the same for your college graduate! 

20. Custom Coordinates Necklace
college graduation gifts

After moving away from home or your college town, it's great to have little things that remind you of those places. 

A necklace with the coordinates of home is such a great accessory that will also remind you of home every time you put it on. 

21. Apple Watch 

Apple Watches are the new big thing. They pretty much do it all. If you know your college graduate is going to be busy but will still want to stay connected, this is the perfect gift! 

It is so convenient to receive notifications on your watch instead of having to look at your phone all the time. It is also a great way to track fitness goals. A perfect college graduation gift for anyone! 

22. Casper Pillow 

Casper pillows are apparently amazing. Getting accustomed to a new place and home is a large transition but having a comfy place to sleep will definitely make things a little easier! 

23. Towel Set 

A nice towel set is a great college graduation gift since it's not something that a college graduate is likely to splurge on. Nice towels are such a luxury though! 

I got towels as a high school graduation gift and still use them to this day. This is definitely a great gift that other people probably haven't thought about. 

24. Gym Bag 

Once your a college graduate, you will have a lot more time to exercise. A gym bag is so nice to have especially if you plan to go to the gym before or after work. 

Having a gym bag makes it so much easier to stay organized and have everything you will need for the gym in one place! This is a great college graduation gift for anyone that loves to stay active. 

25. Essential Oil Diffuser 

Essential oils have so many therapeutic benefits and a diffuser really helps them absorb throughout the body. With all the stress of graduating and moving to a new place, essential oils can be a great way to help relax. 

26. Roomba Robot Vacuum

Now that your graduate is on their own, they are going to have to take care of their own place. This is a great gift for those people that want to keep their place clean but might not have time or are too lazy to do it themselves. 

You can turn this vacuum on and let it clean your new home while your at work! How great does that sound? 

I have one and let me tell you, I am OBSESSED.

27. Toolkit

Now that your graduate is independent and living on their own, they are going to have to fix things when they break. While this isn't the most glamorous gift, I guarantee they will thank you later. 

The worst feeling is having something break and then realizing you have no way to fix it. With this gift, that will never have to happen! 

28. Cast Iron Skillet 

Again, cooking is definitely something your college graduate is going to do a lot more of once they are out on their own. A cast iron skillet is another great tool to have when cooking! 

29. "In the Company of Women" Book

For any girl boss college graduates that are going into business, this book is bound to inspire them to work hard to reach their career goals. 

Stories of inspiring women in the business world is always a great way to motivate. I LOVE books like these and I know your college graduate will too! 

30. Amazon Giftcard

When in doubt, an Amazon giftcard is always a good gift. Everyone always needs something from Amazon at some point. This is such a simple gift but I guarantee they will use it and appreciate it! 

31. Wine Glasses

If your college graduate loves a nice glass of wine once in a while, nice wine glasses is a great gift for their college graduation! Who doesn't love a glass of wine after a long, stressful day at work? 

These wine glasses put a modern spin on the classic wine glass. Stemless and copper, your college graduate is bound to love these! 

32. An Echo Dot 

An Echo Dot is such a fun gift for a college graduate because it's basically your own personal assistant helping make your life much easier. 

It can tell you the weather, turn your lights on and off, set timers and alarms and so much more. What more could a college graduate need?! 

33. Bath Gift Set 

As exciting as graduation is, it is also very stressful since you're finally realizing that you have to be a real adult. To help ease the stress of adulting, a bath gift basket is a perfect way to help your college graduate relax! 

34. A Work Bag

Graduating most likely means working. This work bag is so sleek and professional looking. Your graduate is guaranteed to feel like a BOSS walking into work with this over their shoulder! 

35. A Nice Watch 

Wearing a watch makes you look 10x more put together I swear. A nice watch is a great graduation gift for anyone because who doesn't love to look put together (and always know what time it is)! 

I love small things that can easily elevate a look, and this is one of them! Such a great college graduation gift. 

36. A New Robe

The best feeling after a long work day is snuggling up in a big cozy robe. I have this robe and it's the best thing to ever happen to me (lol). Seriously this is such a good gift!

Your college graduate is going to thank you forever. Everyone needs a big comfy robe! 

37. "Becoming" by Michelle Obama 

This is an incredibly easy and inexpensive gift but one that will inspire a young college graduate. For anyone that likes to read, or may be curious about the life of Michelle Obama, this story is amazing and inspiring. 

38. Blue Apron Subscription  

Blue Apron is a food subscription that delivers you the exact ingredients and portions of food with step-by-step instructions on how to make really good meals. 

This is such a great college graduation gift, especially for those that want to start cooking for themselves but don't know where to start. This gives them the tools they need to learn! 

39. An Electronics Charging Station

It's becoming more and more common to own multiple Apple products which starts to get annoying to charge them all at night! A charging station like this makes it easier and cleaner to charge all your devices at once. 

This makes your bedside table much more organized. This is a great college graduation gift if you know your college grad wants to stay keep all their devices in order!

15 Extremely Cute Dorm Christmas Decorations To Copy This Year

dorm christmas decor

The holiday season is nearing and the christmas decorating itch is in full force. Even though you are in college, you can still celebrate with dorm christmas decorations. 

When I went to college, I often wondered if I would still get in the Christmas spirit. When holiday decorations started going up November 1st (yes, that early!), I knew that Christmas would not be forgotten and we would create our own holiday spirit in the dorm. 

My friends and hall mates went all out and it was so fun. The rooms were full of fake fireplaces, our doors decorated to perfection, and Mariah Carey christmas album blaring through the hallways (don't worry though, I included some really easy dorm christmas decorations if you don't want to go too crazy ;).

This post shows you 15 really cute dorm christmas decorations that you can copy for your own dorm room.

Dorm Christmas Decorations

1. Add Christmas Pillows

Order some cheap christmas pillows and swap them out with your normal pillows. This little change will instantly make your room feel more festive.

I love this idea because you can reuse the pillows for years and years instead of some other christmas dorm decorations that only get used for one year.

Tip: Looking to save some money? See if you can just put a pillow cover over pillows you already have! Most decorative pillows can be unzipped and then you can just swap out the cover for really cheap. I know people do this a lot for different holidays!

2. Decorate your door.

This is a really popular christmas dorm decor!

My friends went all out decorating their door and even included their pictures on it as elves. 

There are all kinds of inspiration pictures on Pinterest to get your mind thinking of ways you could decorate your own door.

 An easy way to do this is to buy some cute wrapping paper (Target has the BEST!) and tape it to your door. Finish it off with a cute wreath and you're good to go.

3. Hang Ornaments in Window

This is a really easy dorm christmas decoration that makes a big impact!

Purchase a set of cheap christmas ornaments and attach them to some string. You can also get an expensive garland and then attach the ornaments to that in the window.

Just like that you've instantly brought the holidays spirit in.

4. Build a DIY fireplace.

How fun is this christmas decoration for a dorm?!

My current roommates actually made this in their dorm room last year and it looked SO good. I wish I had a good picture of it because it changed the whole feeling of the room and made it feel so much cozier!

They had stockings for everyone and everything. 

If you are wondering where to find paper to do this, check out the art department of your school. I can almost guarantee you they will have the large rolls of white paper you can use from. It might be harder to find the red construction paper but you can find that at Michaels or even Amazon.

5. Make a Christmas tree out of lights.

This is the perfect christmas tree for a dorm.

Get some some string lights and with the help of command hooks design it in the shape of a christmas tree.

You're done!

6. Easy DIY Wall Christmas Tree

How cute is this christmas dorm DIY idea?!

Find a place where you can get some sticks and load up on them. Even better if they're in varying sizes! Sand them down to get this look and drill a hole an inch from each of the ends for the string. Put it all together and add the pictures and other decor on it.

Finish it off with string lights and you've got a really cute christmas decor (that honestly could be up year round if you take the lights off)!

If you don't feel up to this DIY I have added some pre-made versions you can buy.

7. Christmas Banner

Adding a Christmas banner is one of the easiest way to spruce up a dorm room for Christmas.

I love this one because it adds just the right amount of spice for a college student. 

There are SO many funny christmas banners but you can find this one in the picture here.

8. Decorate hallway with lights.

This would be so fun to have a hallway turned into a winter light wonderland.

I don't exactly know if this would have been allowed in my dorm hall, but if you can let it fly and can get people to join in with you to do this, it would look SO cool!!

9. Decorate a small Christmas tree.

I am in love with this mini silver christmas tree!! 

This is the perfect size try for a dorm room and completely brings in the Christmas dorm room feel.

This tree comes in SO many different colors so if silver isn't your thing, there will be some color you like.

10. Decorate your fridge.

This is an easy one and is such a cute dorm christmas decorations!

Turn your boring (and ugly) fridge into a snow man. Dorm fridges are really close in size to the ice maker (? not really sure what it is) so you easily could replicate that look with some construction paper and double sided tape. 

11. Make a wreath out of red solo cups.

Can you get more college christmas decor than this?! I'm thinking no.

Not only is this super easy, but pretty darn perfect for hanging on your door. Just get red solo cups and hot glue them together. Finish it up with a bow and you're done!

12. Make Christmas wall art.

How fun is this?

Wrap up some canvases and you've got a really cute christmas wall decor piece!

I personally would pick cuter wrapping paper and bows to make it more "trendy". 

13. Use candy canes as Christmas decor.

On top of being a delicious Christmas dessert, candy canes are a perfect cheap ways to decorate a dorm for christmas.

Get some cute ribbon and hang it from your blinds in the dorm. 

14. Get special star lights.

I want these lights SO bad.

Stars are really popular this year and also make a perfect mild Christmas statement.

You can find these star lights here.

15. Make a beer Santa sleigh.

Of course, I have to finish these christmas dorm decorations with this idea!

I have to give credit to whoever came up with this idea, it is very clever!

16. Give your door some holiday spirit.

I love making sure that every part of my room is decorated for the holiday season but I especially focus on the areas that the most amount of people will see!

Decorating your dorm door for Christmas is the main thing people will see so make it cute!

This post showed you 15 christmas dorm ideas to copy this year.

Aren't these christmas dorm ideas so good?! I am definitely going to use some of these in my own college apartment this year.

Whether she already has everything or doesn't want *anything* (which like really - this makes it way harder for us) we've got you covered.

 Best part, almost all of these gift ideas for Mom are on Amazon (you're welcome).

This post is all about the best Christmas gift ideas for Mom.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Mom:

1. Chic Makeup Organizer 

Makeup is most mom’s best friend, right? I mean where do all girls learns about makeup from? From their moms.

Whether your mom is a big makeup user or likes to organize her belongings in a pretty way, this is for her. Plus, it's under $50 and looks WAY more expensive. Win-win. 

4. Slippers 

Slippers are a girls best friend in the morning. They make your feet feel cozy while you wake up and what’s better than that?

Slippers are a great Christmas gift for mom and something that she can put on right away.

I've owned both of these slippers and LOVE them. So soft and comfortable.

5. Coffee Frother 

I just found out about this little gadget and let me tell you, I am hooked. So, I know that your mom will be too! 

All moms have to start their day with a latte or a cappuccino, right?! If you make it at home, sometimes it's hard to get the consistency of the milk just right. This coffee frother helps get drinks as perfect as if it were made in a coffee shop. 

7. Insulated Stemless Wine Glass 

PSA! These are less than $10 dollars and come in a million colors.

For any momma that loves one, she needs one of these.

2. Jewelry Box 

We all learned about jewelry from ours moms as well. Often times we see it hanging or in trays and kind of all over their bathroom and bedroom right? It’s never all in the same spot, and we know that it would be such a lifesaver for them if it were. 

So, a great christmas gift idea for mom is a jewelry box! This one on Amazon is big enough to fit all of her jewelry in one place so that she never has to search for jewelry ever again! 

3. New Makeup Brushes 

Continuing on the cosmetics train, new makeup brushes are such a great Christmas gift idea for mom! I bet she hasn’t thought of buying new makeup brushes in forever, so this sweet and inexpensive gift will mean the world to her! 

6. Electric Water Kettle 

My assistant was gifted one of these when she moved into her first apartment, and she can’t stop saying enough good things about this! It’s an electric water kettle that heats up various amounts of water in a couple of minutes. 

This is the perfect christmas gift idea for moms that love to cook because it heats up water for boiling in no time. Mom’s love to save time since they do so much, so I promise that she will love getting this gift from you! 

8. A Bottle (or two) of her Favorite Wine 

Speaking of wine, a great go to Christmas gift idea for mom when you’re in a time crunch is to go and grab a couple bottles of her favorite wine as her gift! It’s one that she will love, because she already loves it! 

9. Candles

Candles are such a great go-to gift for anyone, moms included. Moms love to host or just have the house feeling nice and cozy, and candles certainly add to that. 

Most candles also do not break the bank, so this is a great Christmas gift idea for mom that will definitely be within your budget! 

10. Candle Holder 

If you decide to get your mom candles for Christmas, spice up your gift by adding a candle holder to the mix, too! Then it will look like you really thought it out! 

11. AirPods

AirPods are all the rage for the younger generation, but I think that they should be “in” for the parents too!

Mom would love AirPods for so many reasons, and I think the cordless feature would peak at the top of its list. So if you have a little extra to spend on your dear ole mom this Christmas, definitely consider AirPods! 

12. Shoes

Shoes are a great Christmas gift idea for mom because let's be real, a mom can NEVER have enough shoes! So if you want a gift that you know your mom will love, shoes are the way to go! 

But you might be wondering what shoes to get her. Totally understandable, here’s a pro tip: check in her closet and see if anythings missing or try and recall past conversations, that should help you figure out what shoes mom would love most for Christmas! 

13. Coffee Table Books 

Moms LOVE to have their home looking very aesthetic for when guests come over. Coffee table books are a great way to add to said aesthetic without breaking the bank.

And there are so many coffee table books that one or two are bound to fit your mom’s home and personality perfectly. So if you have a mom love that loves house decor, this is one Christmas gift idea for her that you won’t want to forget! 

14. Jewelry 

Jewelry is another great Christmas gift idea for mom because it is such a go to category for women’s gifts in general. 

All women love jewelry, so I promise you that some gold hoops or a simple necklace will be a great gift for mom for Christmas. 

15. Foot Massager 

It might have taken us a while to learn, but moms work HARD and we cannot deny it. So, a great Christmas gift idea for mom would be one that makes coming home after a long day that much more inviting, right? Right!

That’s why a foot massager is such a great Christmas gift idea for mom. It helps her relax after a hard day and gives her feet the attention they deserve. A foot massager for Christmas basically guarantees that you’ll be her favorite child from here on out! 

16. Air Fryer 

Air fryers are one of the newest and hottest trends and I am sure that moms would love to jump on it! Especially moms who want to make and create the best healthy meals for their family that they can! It’s a great Christmas gift idea for moms that want to stay on trend AND stay healthy! 

17. Coffee Spoons 

I’ve already said it but its so important that I will say it again, moms need coffee. And most moms need coffee with creamer! So, be super thoughtful this Christmas and get your mom some coffee spoons for Christmas.

Because you know she needs her coffee and want her to have things specially dedicated to her morning coffee, you recognize how vital it is to her functioning. You’ll be her favorite child because of how thoughtful this gift is! 

18. Books 

Books are SUCH a great Christmas gift idea for mom! They’re on the more inexpensive side and what mom doesn’t love to curl up with a good book? 

Getting mom books for Christmas is a great way to tell her that you love her and want her to relax. And those are definitely things that favorite children say! 

19. A Nice Flannel 

Flannels are a staple in the winter for any and everyone because they provide comfort and warmth without being super bulky. If your mom is always cold or needs some extra layers this winter, definitely look into getting her a NICE flannel for Christmas! 

20. Weighted Blanket 

Weighted Blankets are ALL the rage right now, and honestly why wouldn’t they be? They feel like you’re sleeping with a hug around you.

It’s super comforting and guaranteed to help your sleep quality improve. Weighted blankets are great Christmas gift ideas for moms who need some help sleeping at night, or just always love hugs! 

21. A New Wallet 

My mom’s wallet has always been filled to the brim with gift cards, rewards cards, credit cards, and cash. If your mom’s is the same way, look into getting her a new wallet for Christmas.

Wallets are a great Christmas gift idea for mom because they show that you notice the little things! 

22. Car Mount 

Car mounts keep your phone held in a place on your dashboard so that you can easily see it without looking down. I’m not advocating for your mom to text and drive, but car mounts are helpful for looking at directions or talking to someone on speaker phone.

So if you want to make sure that your mom is driving safe, a car mount is an awesome Christmas gift idea! 

23. Sunglasses 

What mom doesn’t ROCK some sunnies on the daily? Sunglasses are a great Christmas gift idea for mom because honestly, can one really have enough sunnies? 

24. Gym Bag 

Did you know that most moms don’t realize that they actually need a gym bag for working out? They think taking their purse in is just fine!

Taking a purse isn’t the worst thing in the world, but mom deserves to feel like a rockstar in the gym, right? So if you want your mom to look and feel like the rockstar she truly is, get her a nice gym bag for Christmas! 

25. Personalized Toiletry Bag 

Moms travel too, and they need nice and spacious toiletry bags! Toiletry bags have always been a go to Christmas gift idea for mom, but this year take it up a notch by getting that bag PERSONALIZED!

It will show that her favorite child really took the time to get her a gift they knew she would love! 

26. Straightener Brush 

Have you seen these before? I just found them and TBH, I’m adding to my own Christmas wish list! It’s a heated hair brush that STRAIGHTENS your hair while your brush it. How awesome is that? 

This would make a PERFECT Christmas gift idea for the mom who complains about how long it takes her to get ready because this brush would totally save her time! 

27. Your School's Sweatshirt/Jacket

Mom’s LOVE to rep their kids schools. Don’t lie, you know its true. So if you want to get her something unique, look into grabbing a sweatshirt or t-shirt from your school’s spirit shop before you head home for break.

This is such a sweet and thoughtful Christmas gift idea for mom because it shows her that you recognize what she loves and you want her to love your school just as much as you do! 

28. Wireless Charging Station for Phone 

If your mom is one who loves convenience, then I have the PERFECT Christmas gift for you to give her! 

If your mom has the iPhone 8 or up, it can wirelessly charge! All she has to do is place is face up on a wireless charging stand and BOOM! it charges her phone. Mom would LOVE this gift because it means no more annoying cords! 

29. Foreo Face Cleanser  

    Moms have to have a skincare routine too! Upgrade them to a  ~luxurious~ skincare routine by getting them a Foreo.

    A Foreo gentles cleanses your skin and removes dead skin cells. It will keep mom’s face clean and fresh, and she’ll have you, her favorite child, to thank for it!  

30. Eye Shadow Palette 

When it comes to makeup, I truly believe that the easiest gift to give is an eyeshadow palette. Why? Because there are so many kinds of looks that you can create and your mom is sure to find one that she loves! 

If your mom loves makeup and you’re looking for a gift that doesn’t break the bank but looks thoughtful, an eyeshadow palette is a great Christmas gift idea for mom! 

31. Face Mask Set 

Moms deserves luxury. And face masks, they feel luxurious but don’t have a luxurious price tag, which we gift givers LOVE. So if you mom just wants a simple gift for Christmas, I highly suggest getting her a set of face masks! 

32. Contigo Travel Mug 

Moms are ALWAYS on the go. Often, that means their coffee is on the go, too. If this sounds like your mom, then a Contigo travel mug is a great Christmas gift idea for her! 

Contigo Travel mugs don’t break the bank, but they keep your coffee warm for HOURS! And their no spill technology makes sure that your mom doesn’t have to add “cleaning another mess” to her list of things to do!

33. Tile Set 

Moms can be NOTORIOUS for losing things, especially keys and phones. If that’s your mom, then I highly suggest getting a tile set as your mom’s Christmas gift. It gives her a way to find one if she has the other. What a time saving and thought gift! 

34. "I Love You Mom and Here's Why" Journal

This is a sweet journal you fill out for your mom. So if your mom is simple and sentimental, I think that this is the ideal Christmas gift idea for you to get her! 

35. Bath Bomb Set 

Bath bombs are just like the face mask set I mentioned, but for your body. So if your mom isn’t super into face masks but loves a good bath, definitely look into getting her this.

OR If you want to make sure that your mom feels extra pampered this Christmas, get both sets! No one said you couldn’t 🙂 (well, except maybe your bank account, but do we really ever listen to that anyway?) 

36. Updated Sibling Portrait 

Moms LOVE photos! Don’t deny it, a big portion of your childhood was spent posing for mom’s camera. Feed into her love of photos and memories by getting all of your siblings together and get an updated photo and then frame it for her.

Your mom will DIE over this sentimental Christmas gift you did just for her! 

37. Birthstone Necklace
gifts for mom

This is another very thoughtful and sentimental gift that is the perfect Christmas gift idea for mom. It’s a necklace that has all the birthstones of her kids on it. That way she has a piece of y’all wherever she goes!

38. Gift Cards 

I always want to include this one because I think that when we are shopping for those that we love the most we tend to forget about it when REALLY gift cards can be the best gift that you can give. 

They let people choose whatever they want so that they are always happy with what you got them. So if your mom is picky and/or you’re in a rush, a gift card is always your best option! 

39. Cheese Board

If your mom loves to host, get her a cheese board where she can put anything on it. It’s the perfect and super thoughtful Christmas gift idea for mom! 

40. Bath Tray

Bath trays provide a next level bath experience. So if your mom loves baths, definitely look into this as her gift! Tip: get one with a wine glass holder, those go over especially well!

41. Hand Cream

This is a great stocking stuffer Christmas gift idea for moms, unless you get like a super expensive and nice kind of hand cream for her then definitely make a gift gift.

But mom’s need stocking stuffers too ya know, so put some hand cream and a face mask and a gift card in her stocking for Christmas morning! 

42. Yoga Mat 

Moms need relaxation right? Like if you ask them what they want, 9 times out of 10 they will respond with “peace and quiet”. Yoga, provides that for them. So help them get more into yoga by getting them a nice yoga mat. IT’s a great idea for a Christmas gift for mom!
