10 Practical Gifts for Mom

 Often, when shopping for my sister and friends, I think about what I love and what I use and then shop accordingly!  It never fails, I have an internal battle to buy one for someone else and one for myself ;).  Anyone else? So, let me share with you my top practical gifts for that hard to buy for lady in your life.

Top 10 Practical Gifts for Her


If you follow me on Instagram (follow here), you know I have summer slippers (like the ones above) and winter slippers (like these). I wear slippers every single day of the year. A new pair of slippers is the BIGGEST treat for me and I love gifting cozy and warm slippers to others too.


Who doesn’t love jewelry and not only is practical but you can make it very personal as well from a monogram to the first initial of each child’s name. Some of my favorite small jewelry shops include –

Ellie In Her Element makes the most beautiful earrings and bracelets including stamped and personalized ones.  

If Only Pretty creates beautiful hand-stamped delicate bracelets.

Silverado Jewelry makes personalized and delicate bar bracelets.

Just remember to shop early when it comes to personalized jewelry!


Nothing says cozy and winter like a good smelling candle burning in your home! Check out Dirt Road Candle Co. (Iowa Timber and XOXO are some of my favorite scents).

Stocking Hat

In the Mideast, it’s not just practical but necessary to own a cute knit hat because you will wear it ALL winter long. My favorite hats to gift are BE Happe Hats.

Cordless Vacuum

Who gets someone a vacuum as a gift? Me. I bought my mom one because it’s literally life-changing especially if you have kids who leave trails of crumbs everywhere they go. I use mine every single day multiple times a day. It will make whoever you gift it to’s life so much more simple! Trust me. I recommend this vacuum!

Soap Set & Seasonal Tea Towel

It is such a simple, sweet indulgence to throw in a stocking or wrap up with some cute towels like these from Doe A Deer (a favorite small business of mine).  I especially love Mrs. Meyer’s and J.R. Watkins Soaps.  You don’t have to look too far on Pinterest to find a cute printable to affix to your soap for a cute Christmas gift!

Gel Nail Polish

I have been loving both this gel nail polish top coat and this gel top coat.  Even with all the dishes and chores, my nail polish stays on so much better.  You could even include a pedicure, manicure, or massage gift card with some nail polishes!  I am especially loving navy and white nail polishes right now!


After a year like we have had, sometimes there’s nothing more cathartic than putting pen to paper and getting all those feelings and thoughts out on to paper. Check out this Christian daily journal or this daily gratitude journal.

Throw Blanket

There’s nothing more luxurious than wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket on a couch and binge-watching your favorite shows. However, blankets aren’t all created equal. I rounded up my favorite, coziest ones below.
