If you're in a relationship, never ever purchase "joint-use" gifts unless formerly talked about. Buying your sweetie a 50" plasma TELEVISION when you live together might send out the message that the presents is really for you. And never buy her a kitchen home appliance unless she tells you she really, no actually, desires a Cuisinart juicer, do not, I duplicate, do not purchase your loved one a home appliance for Christmas (unless you like sleeping on the sofa).

Want an amazing gift mom didn't even know she needed? Check out Baked by Melissa, a small cupcake bakery that quickly became one of our favorite places to order sweets online. You can order mom 25, 50, or even 100 mini cupcakes in fun flavors like red velvet, chocolate chip pancake, Oreo cheesecake, and mint chocolate chip. Just whatever you do, don't expect mom to share. 
Now more than ever, the mom in your life deserves—nay, needs—a warm pair of slippers to take her around the house in style. Get her these lightweight, breathable wool slippers from Glerups, among the best we’ve ever tested. Made from just one piece of felt, they’re less prone to splitting or degradation than other felted wool slippers. And they’re easy to slide on and off when she doesn’t have the time to bend down and fiddle with footwear. The slippers are available in rubber-soled versions, too, so she can wear hers both inside and outside of the house.
