Best Christmas Gifts for Mom

1. Ancestry DNA Test
What better gift to give a mom than the gift of genetic ancestry. Helping her connect with her family roots and ancestors.
AncestryDNA is the #1 selling consumer DNA test and it can trace your roots back to 500+ global regions.
This personal yet universal treasure is packed with sentiment and meaning and will be a topic of conversation for years to come.
To make it even more special, consider buying one for yourself as well and taking the test together, and comparing results. She will LOVE that!
2. Tote Bag
Moms are always on the go! And the more kids they have the more they have to carry around.
However, just because she has to carry a million things with her as she runs errands doesn’t mean that she can’t do it in style, without breaking the bank.
This gorgeous Tote Bag 3 Piece-Set makes a beautiful and useful gift all year round. It is an Amazon’s-Choice product and holds an almost 5-start review of more than 20,000 happy customers. Also, it offers 27 colors to choose from!
To make it an even more complete gift, consider this insert bag organizer. Or, if she already owns a Tote bag she loves and uses all the time, this organizer makes a great gift of its own.
3. Apple AirPods
Another super trendy Christmas gift for mom are the Apple AirPods with Charging Case.
Whether she is doing dishes, going for a walk, or folding laundry these Apple AirPods are cordless headphones which allow her to be mobile and flexible without worrying about tangled cords.
These Apple AirPods with Charging Case allow her to put them down to charge and pick them up throughout the day as she needs them.
Once she goes “AirPods” she won’t go back to regular headphones, ever!
4. Diffuser with Organic Oils
Motherhood is hard, period! What mama do you know isn’t in need of some organic lavender oil in the air to keep stress levels down to a minimum?
Well, this is not only a great stress reliever gift but it makes for a gorgeous home decoration.
This Ceramic Essential Oil Diffuser from Earnest Living is a beautiful option. This cool-mist humidifier comes with 7 color lights and 4 timers for automatic shut-off.
In addition, oil diffusers are a much safer option than traditional air fresheners and fragrance candles, which can be potentially harmful to your health.
To go along this beautiful diffuser consider getting her an Organic Essencial Oil Set.
Diffusing organic oils offer a wide range of health and well-being benefits including improving your health, boosting your energy, promoting good sleep, and many more.
However, not all essential oils are good for your health. Even those which claim to be “natural” and “healing”. Make sure you use organic essential oils, as many scented oils are made from petroleum and other chemicals. Always look of the “USDA” organic seal.
This Aromatherapy Essential Oils Set is Organic Certified and includes top aromatherapy oils (Lavender, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Orange Oils).
They are premium quality, authentic, natural, unfiltered, undiluted, with no additives and no fillers.
And… if you want to go the extra mile, add Dr. Axe’s “Essential Oils: Ancient Medicine for a Modern World“. It is a great addition to this gift set.
It will teach her everything she needs to know about essential oils and receive practical instruction on how to use them effectively so she can start enjoying their benefits right away.
5. Prayer Over Children Book
Nothing means more to a mother than knowing her children are safe and protected.
This simple yet powerful prayer is the best prayer to pray over your children I have ever come across.
The prayer is called “Shield of Protection” and it is one of the beautiful prayers found on the book 60 Promises to Pray Over Your Children Book written by Roy Lessin.
This book makes a beautiful gift for any occasion.
The book is a devotional full of powerful prayers, each with a designated scripture. It is undoubtedly a lifetime treasure.
Another great idea is the Hymns for a Mother’s Heart from Daily Grace Co. Hymns for a Mother’s Heart is a beautiful devotional for moms. Each hymn has a devotional, the hymn lyrics, prayers for mothers, and prayers for her children, as well as space for notes and reflections.
6. Eco Dot with Alexa
It is time to upgrade the way mom listens to music and how she wakes up in the morning.
Let’s face it… Moms need all the help they can get! And Alexa can do just that with the Eco Dot (3rd Gen).
Alexa controls compatible smart home devices, like lights, fans, TVs, thermostats, and more. Works with more than 10,000 smart home devices from Philips, Sengled, Bose, TP-Link and more.
Finally, a device that mom can give instructions to and have an mediate response and reaction. If only the kids could do that! Haha.
“Alexa, play music”…
“Alexa set the alarm for 6:00 am”…
“Alexa, dim the lights”…
“Alexa, give me a foot massage” (Ok, Just kidding, but it would be nice, ha).
7. Mom Necklace
Not all necklaces are created equal, and this one in particular is incredibly special.
This Stirling Silver Mother Daughter Necklace is specifically for daughters looking to let mom know that you are both forever bound.
As per the manufacturer, this necklace will not turn your skin green or red or itchy. It’s the real deal using sterling silver from the most reputable silver supplier in the country.
8. Audible Books by Amazon
Audible books make an amazing Christmas gift for moms. As a mom myself, I no longer have time to read as much as I used to… But with Audible Books I get to listen to any book of my choice on the go.
While washing dishes, folding clothes, getting the kids from school, before bed, while taking a shower, cooking… Anywhere and everywhere audio books give moms the chance to still get to listen to their favorite books and get some much needed distraction.
Audible Amazon Gift Membership offers 1, 3, 6, and 12 months gift memberships options.
Gift recipients who are new to Audible have access to all member benefits for the duration of their gift and keep all purchased audiobooks permanently.

Then, Audible will send your gift recipient an email on the day you choose along with redemption instructions, or allow you to print and give it directly to them based on the option you select.
The gift recipient can start their Audible membership right away. If the recipient is already an Audible member, they will get their credits all at once.
9. Organic Bath Bombs
Help mom unwind and relax with these Natural and Organic Bath Bombs Gift Set of 6.
Mom can now indulge in a nice warm bath without harsh, toxic, and unsustainable chemicals. These organic bath bombs are infused with goodness like organic shea butter, and other safe, natural, earth-friendly ingredients.
