Reasons why you love your mom so much
If your Mom likes her evening tea, she'll love this Bella tea kettle. Instead of going through the hassle of putting a pot of water to boil on the stove (not to mention the loud cry it makes when ready), all Mom has to do is fill this adorably patterned tea kettle and flip the switch on the side. It'll boil water in no time with 1200 watts of power, which means she can have her chamomile quicker. P.S. our associate editor's mom uses this kettle daily, and loves the patterns!
A lot of folks see a self-heating mug, and think it's the silliest thing you could possibly own. In fact, nearly everyone at CNET who's tried an Ember Mug refuses to have anyone pry if from their hands. It's a great gift idea because it's pricey and something that people generally wouldn't buy for themselves -- and that goes double if Mom loves coffee, tea or hot chocolate. See our coverage of the latest Ember products.
Cellophane and Ribbon
There are few gifts better than personalized ones, especially when it comes to mom, who pretty much already has everything she wants. With services like Minted, you can upload your own photos for a calendar and arrange them on colorful backgrounds, then customize your creation for each month. Most calendars also allow you to enter birthdays and important events, so you can help mom actually remember her mother-in-law’s birthday this year.
What’s better than a present you can eat? Whether mom prefers fruit or chocolate or assorted cheeses, you can find nearly every type of edible goody from Harry & David. We tried Harry & David and found that its gift baskets were chock-full of delicious foods that would make any person smile. We were partial to the Moose Munch and chocolate-covered pretzels, but if mom loves fresh fruit, you can’t get better than the classic Harry & David pears.
From slicers and dicers to scales and even food processors, mom can pick up a KitchenAid stand mixer accessory for just about any use. If she already owns the iconic kitchen gadget, pick up a new accessory she can attach to her mixer and use while cooking. The slicer and shredder attachment is affordable, effective, and incredibly useful, especially considering that it’s powered by the motor in your mixer, allowing mom to leverage that power for quick shredding. It’ll be her new sous chef.
Grocery shopping is still one of the most time-consuming tasks Mom does week after week. But Walmart’s newest service, Walmart+, makes a great gift for mothers looking for an easy way to get groceries delivered at home. The Amazon Prime rival only costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year, so you can get mom a monthly or yearly subscription, depending on your budget. She’ll be able to get free shipping on both groceries and any number of other products she wants to buy from Walmart, which makes it the gift that just keeps on giving. Just make sure her area is eligible for delivery before ordering.
The best method for coming up with Christmas presents for her is to consider what she truly likes. Importantly, this does not mean considering what you believe she SHOULD really like. Put another method, tickets to the next football video game are not going to suffice. Rather, truly provide some believed to what she does when she has some extra time.
Throughout your life, your mother takes different role to help you and guide you all the way. When you are a little kid, your mother is your angel, when you become a teenager, she becomes your best pal, and when you are an adult she becomes the secret sharer. When ever you were happy, she rejoiced and danced with you. She shared your stress when you had your examinations and she is a shoulder to cry when you had a breakup. In every stage of your life, there is one person from whom you can expect to get unconditional love, and that is your momma.
When it comes to running shoes, it doesn’t get much better than Allbirds Wool Runners. We tested the brand’s best-selling shoes and found that they lived up to the hype—they’re soft, comfy, and ideal for the mom who spends the better part of her day running around. Whether she’s completing errands or chasing kids around the yard, the Wool Runners make a great gift option.
Smart speakers like the new Echo are great companions in the kitchen or bedroom, but the Show 8 adds a healthy 8-inch screen which can display everything from weather forecasts to streaming videos. This thoughtful gift has a full-fledged Echo smart speaker built-in, too. And yes, the camera has a manual shutter, so Mom never has to worry about being surreptitiously photographed. Read our Amazon Echo Show 8 review.
Avoiding the dog home
This one is a pricey gift, we know, but for the mama who loves espresso drinks, it’s a gift she’ll use and enjoy for years. After more than 80 hours of research and testing, we think the Breville Bambino Plus makes the best home option: It’s easy to use but makes consistently rich shots and perfectly steamed milk. And with a sleek, compact design, it’ll look pretty in nearly every kitchen lucky enough to have it.
