This mans that you should be able to find something good – even if you only want to spend a small amount of money. We really like the snarky mom coloring book as an affordable Christmas gift, for example!

Looking for a food prep gift for mom that can help her cook a little more healthy? Think about an air fryer! Air fryers are great because they can make lots of different items with little or no oil required. We actually really like air fryers because it’s a great way to easily prepare a meal.
Not to be too stereotypical but every mom should have a comfortable pair of yoga pants that she loves and wears all the time. If your mom doesn’t have any yet, this might be a gift idea for you to buy. Comfortable and stretchy, these pants even have pockets for all their mom storage needs.
For the mom who spends a lot of time looking at computer screens during the night, might appreciate a gift like a face/head massager. This one specializes on the eyes and temple region and can help relax and reduce tension.

Vacuum Sealer Machine
For the mom that loves to be in the kitchen creating or entertaining, consider a vacuum sealer. This is a great way to store food and prep meals for later. Using a vacuum sealer is also a great way to save money there’s generally less food waste created when you can properly seal/store food items!

Laptop Tote Bag
For the working moms and the moms-on-the-go, check out this laptop tote bag. This great bag has a nice design and is also functional – which is always a good thing to look for in a product. This fact is especially true for products that carry important things like a laptop!
Moisturizing Hand Cream
If you’ve got a mom that’s always complaining about dry hands and/or skin, consider the gift of Aveeno. This well-known brand has been helping with dry skin for years and we also it from time to time. We like the fragrance-free kind, too.
Weekly & Monthly Planner
In case your mom is always juggling calendar dates, think about getting her a weekly and monthly planner. Equipped with a pen holder, this is a great gift – the gift of organization!
Things to Consider When Buying Christmas Gifts for Mom
When buying a gift for a mom for Christmas, definitely have a think about a few buying points. Most of these Christmas ideas for mom aren’t a big fail if you get it wrong but a robot vacuum (for example) might not be great if it doesn’t work on the floor material in the house!
Price and Quality
Price doesn’t always equate to a higher quality but it is often the case when it comes to electronics. If you are going for something more expensive like a fitness watch, usually opting for the actual brand name and not a knock-off will ensure that you get a great product. That said, you could get an iPad tablet stand and it might be super cheap and solid quality and it ends up being the best gift, ever!
Affordable Christmas Gifts for Mom
Affordable gifts for mom don’t mean that you “you don’t care as much”. Cheaper gifts work great as stocking stuffers or for buying a few of items and combining them into one larger “gift pack” type of gift.
Some of these more affordable gifts are also a “no-stress” gift in the sense that if Mom doesn’t like it, you didn’t spend a ton anyway!
Mid-range Christmas Gifts for Mom
Mid-range gifts for moms are always a good option because they can serve many purposes. Most of these gifts are great standalone gift ideas.
If the gift is cheaper – and you’d like to get your mom a little more -, you can always get two mid-range gifts to make one larger gift or one mid-range and one smaller to make a smaller, two-part gift. There are lots of options for mid-range gifts that fit a variety of interests so have a look on our list above!
High-end Christmas Gifts for Mom
High-end gifts for a mom for Christmas are a bit more of a financial investment. For many of these kinds of gifts, you will want to make sure that you do your research beforehand to see if it’s something Mom wants in the first place.
If this is the case, do more research to get the right brand/model if there are more than one! We love the idea of an eReader but not all moms like to read!
This one can be self-explanatory but we are going to explain it anyway. Definitely have a think about the purpose of the gift you are buying and the intended receiver. Does your mom use essential oils? Does your mom like to read so much that she would actually use an eReader? These are things to ask yourself before buying any mom gifts.
Bruce has bought gifts for his mom over the years but they just haven’t worked out (didn’t get used) because it wasn’t something that his Mom would work into her daily life/interests. She likes chocolate a lot – so he just usually buys chocolate. Simple!
And there you have it – 23 of the best mom Christmas gift ideas across a bunch of price ranges! In the end, just keep your Mom and her interests in mind when you buy and you should find something that works well for her. And remember, Christmas isn’t just about the gifts anyway!
