Holiday Gift Guide for Moms

Hey there, husbands and boyfriends and partners.  This one’s for you.  You’re welcome.

I love my husband, but he’s not always great at Christmas gift-giving.  Gifts I have gotten in the past include snow boots and flippers.  Yes, these things are practical and yes, I use them.  However, I spend all year long putting others first and I kind of want to be spoiled a bit on Christmas.

Here’s a list of items I’d be thrilled to find under my tree.

Tiffany Jewelry.  You give us something in a baby blue box and we’ll love you for life.  Anything from the Paloma Picasso collection is amazing, and not totally bank busting.  Hint:  check what color jewelry your lady likes to wear so you can buy something that matches.  My personal favorites are:

Paloma Picasso®:Olive Leaf Band Ring Paloma Picasso®:Knot Ring Paloma Picasso®:Hammered Crossover Cuff   Paloma's Venezia:Luce Pendant   Tiffany Solitaire<br>Diamond Earrings

High-end workout gear.  Yes, I know we work out in these clothes and it can be hard to rationalize the price, but we are worth it.  These high end items make us look good and feel good.  Plus, they make us feel spoiled, and isn’t that the entire point?

Boots.  I know, I said earlier that boots weren’t a great Christmas gift.  Practical boots, not a great gift.  These boots?  AWESOME gift.

Anything from the Nordstrom Designer Sale, which is currently 40% off.  Seriously, anything.  My favorites are here.  Just put in your lady’s size and price limitations, and she will be thrilled.

Other good ideas?  These aren’t working for you?  Here are good standbys:

  • leg warmers
  • gift certificate for massage, yoga classes, or manicures
  • a seriously amazing date night
  • tickets to see her favorite band
  • a weekend getaway

Happy holidays everyone!
