Find the perfect present for your friend, sister, aunt or mom with these special and unique gift ideas for moms.
Less than a week until Thanksgiving, which means we are officially entering the season of giving! One of the things I enjoy most about this time of year is holiday shopping. There is something about this time of year that just makes me really happy, and air about us I can’t quite put my finger on. I know it sounds a little cheesy, but picking out and wrapping presents leaves me with such a warm and wonderful feeling.
Since I love picking out gifts so much, I decided to put together a list of gift ideas geared toward moms because I have spent so much time thinking about moms this year and what we can do to take care of ourselves. (Although you’ll find that many of these ideas aren’t just for moms — in fact, many of them would make great gifts for men as well!). Each gift idea was picked to make moms feel special and pampered. Speaking as a mom, many are items I have purchased, received as a gift, or have been eyeing myself!
Please note, some of the gift ideas contain affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you — and will likely end up using the money to purchase one of these fantastic items for myself!
Minted carries a vast array of stunning stationary designed by individual artists that can be customized. (You can actually learn about the artist who designs each individual piece!) Each set comes in an embossed gift box, and some designs are foil-pressed to make an extra special gift idea for moms.

In case you missed me raving about the Moody Sisters skincare last month, it is a natural beauty product company that two sisters started (and still run). Everything is handcrafted, from their body scrubs to shimmering mineral eyeshadows to the lip balms to body treatment gift sets.

Adult coloring book
There are some amazing color books now that are specifically for grownups. I’m partial to Secret Paris Color Your Way to Calm. Paired with a beautiful set of color pencils, it makes a lovely — and soothing — present.
Woven sterling silver bracelet
If you are looking for a piece of jewelry that is functional without sacrificing style, something that will take you from helping your kids with their science project to a night out with girlfriends, then this is it. This woven sterling silver Byzantine bracelet by Linkouture is both durable and practical while also feminine and beautiful. It goes with everything — I know because I wear mine every day! (By the way, through November 24, you can enter to win $75 to spend in the Linkouture Etsy shop.)
Custom handcrafted leather journal
After sharing Christine Marie Ford’s travel journal for the travel Friday Finds, I asked my sister to get me a custom journal for my birthday this year. It is seriously stunning! It is made with a thicker parchment paper that is a pleasure to write on. It can be customized with the cover color and type, bead accent, and strap.
Handcrafted artisan soap
I met the owner/make at Roslindale Soap at a farmer’s market last month. We had a fantastic discussion about going the all-natural route with body products and I bought several bars of her luxurious soaps. Each bar smells amazing — I had such a hard time choosing! Right now I’m using the herbal exfoliating bar with chamomile.
Chunky knitted cape
Katty offers a gorgeous array of hand-knitted goods made from vegan acrylic yarns. This cape is both sophisticated and practical gift idea to keep a busy mom warm on a cool winter day.
Membership to a museum — or several!
Museum memberships are a gift that can be enjoyed over and over again.
