Christmas Gift Ideas ~ for Moms


This is my list of ideas for MOMS! I will link to everything where I find the best online price {most of the time it is Amazon}. Most links are affiliate links, some are not {if I am not affiliated with the particular company}. If you purchase anything through an affiliate link, you give back a percentage to our family…thanks!

Little Stuff

  • Made On Hard Lotion ~ we use the hard lotion bars, goat milk soap, and chapstick.  They have awesome gift sets available too!  My son and my husband save their dry skin with these bars! Free shipping on orders over $45!  You can see my recent purchase below!
  • Drink Bands ~ these are made by the same people who make Made On {see above}, she sent me a set with my recent order and we are in love.  Such a simple yet genius concept!  Great gift for grandparents too! They just launched and have free shipping for the holidays!
  • Easy Lunchboxes ~ I LOVE these things.  Ask for 2 sets just to be safe!  We use them in and out of the house.  See my original review here.
  • Life is Art ~ we love our FAITH print {review here}. 
  • The Vintage Pearl ~ I still wear my necklace every day and it is my absolute favorite. See my original review here.
  • DaySpring ~ Dayspring was a sponsor at Relevant and had many of their beautiful products there.  We even got to take home a few { I own the 2 totes pictured below as well as other goodies}!  The totes are Buy 1 Get 1 Free!  What a great gift deal! They also have a 30% off coupon active through Nov 28, 2011: SUPER30.

  • Laminator {everyone knows how much I love this, right?} I use these pouches.
  • iPod Dock {we use ours for school, we have this exact one but got ours at Target, it’s a bit pricey (it was a gift) but I bet a less pricey model would be equally as wonderful!}
  • Label Maker {don’t know how I lived so long without one-got ours and get our refills at Costco}
  • Cuisinart Hand Mixer {oh how I LOVE this little gadget}

The BIG Gift {just in case Santa still visits any of you}

  • Kindle ~ I own the model from last year, but if I didn’t have this one, I would certainly be asking for the Kindle Fire-that thing looks AHH-mazing!
  • iPad ~ we got one this past year and LOVE it!!  It really is neat for the whole family! See apps we use for homeschool here!
  • iPod Touch {I own the 32G version 3, I linked to the 8G version 4-which is smaller-I don’t really need the 32G I have, but also is better as the newer version has a camera!}
  • Canon Digital Rebel {I personally own the 40D, but the rebel is the best starter dSLR} I get asked a lot about which model of Rebel is best. Honestly-if this is your first dSLR, the lower priced model is great. If you can afford the higher priced model-go for it. BUT-it is not necessary. That is my personal opinion and I know others may disagree. I say the price difference isn’t worth it unless you have future professional plans-and then you’d more than likely move beyond a Rebel anyway. I don’t own either but have seen both and used older models of both.
    • 50mm lens {if you like the blurred background and the ability to shoot in lower light without a flash, you want this lens!}
    • See all of my photography info here in my Behind the Scenes ~ Photography post
    • A great photography book is: Better Photo Basics, I have a few and this one is my favorite for beginners.
    • A Light Scoop is an inexpensive way to soften fill flash light indoors, I have one and use it in my schoolroom for most of my blog photos that are taken indoors.
  • Jack Lalanne Juicer {we LOVE our juicer and have had this exact model for over 2 years, you can read all of our posts about juicing here}
  • Dyson Vacuum {we own this exact one, the DC25 and we ordered ours from Amazon about a year ago.  We LOVE it and yes it is all that.  I hesitated for years to spend the $$ but I am so glad we saved up and finally got it!}
  • Projector ~ we got this for our schoolroom and watch all of our school PowerPoint shows on it, it also shows our Wii and DVD player.  It is wonderful!
