Some people on our holiday shopping lists are trickier than others, often for very different reasons. One category that can be challenging to shop for? Our beloved mothers. They’ve given us so much throughout the course of our lives — how can we ever repay that kind of support and love via holiday gift? And if your mom is anything like mine, there’s a good chance she has very specific taste and stringently avoids anything that could potentially be categorized as junk. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible to give your mom a thoughtful, meaningful gift that will make her feel appreciated and loved by her family this holiday season.

Below, I’ve rounded up the best holiday gifts for every kind of mom. They include gardening tools for green thumbs, skin care products to help them indulge in some much-needed self-care, cozy winter clothes to snuggle up in and much more. This selection includes a wide range of price points and aesthetics so you can find the one that’s best for your own special mama. Keep reading to pick one up and cement your status as mom’s favorite child.

Bose smart soundbar
Give mom the gift of crystal clear, rich sound with a Bose smart soundbar. It has a matte black finish and a metal grille that will seamlessly blend into the scenery. It even has a built-in Alexa so your mom can enjoy her music or programs with the ease of hands-free voice control. She'll get use out of it every day and think of you every time.
NuFace Trinity microcurrent device
The NuFace Trinity device has gained near-cult status in recent years, with devotees swearing by its facial toning prowess. It’s an FDA-cleared microcurrent device that claims to gently stimulate the face and neck in an effort to tone, lift and contour facial muscles and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. You can purchase various additional attachments, like a red light wrinkle reducer and lip and eye wand, but it also works perfectly fine on its own. It has five different intensity levels, so you can work your way up if you find it to be a bit too strong at first. It’s currently 20% off at SkinStore with discount code GIFT.
