Things to Consider When Buying Gifts For A Mom For Christmas
When buying a gift for a mom for Christmas, definitely have a think about a few buying points. Most of these gifts aren’t a big fail if you get it wrong but a robot vacuum might not be great if it doesn’t work on the floor material in the house!
Price/Quality. Price doesn’t always equate to a higher quality but this is usually the case. If you are going for something expensive like a Fitbit, usually going for the actual brand name and not a knock-off will ensure that you get a great product. That said, you might get an iPad tablet stand and it might be super cheap and might be solid quality and the best gift, ever!
Purpose. This one can be self-explanatory but we are going to explain it anyways. 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 require an e-reader? These are things to ask yourself before buying.
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 – so he just buys chocolate! Simple!
Affordable Gifts For A Mom For Christmas
Affordable gifts for Mom don’t mean that you “you didn’t care as much”. Cheaper gifts work great as stocking stuffers or for buying a bunch of them together and combining them into one larger “gift pack” type of gift.
Some of these gifts are also a “no stress” gift in the sense that if Mom doesn’t like it, you didn’t spend a ton anyway!

Lastly, if you have a mom that loves her tablet - think about a tablet stand as a great gift. This adjustable stand is compatible with lots of different devices and can make all the difference when watching videos, reading recipes on the kitchen counter, and more!
Mid-Range Gifts For A Mom For Christmas
Mid-range gifts for moms are always a good option because they can serve many purposes. If it’s expensive enough, it CAN be a standalone gift.
If the gift is cheaper, you can always get two mid-range 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!

High-end gifts for a Mom for Christmas are a bit more of a financial investment. For many of these, 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 that’s the case, do more research to get the right brand/model if there are more than one! We love the idea of an e-reader but not all moms like to read!
If you have a mom that you want to splurge on, think about a RoboVac. Great for multiple surfaces, this is a great gift that can be a time saver - allowing any mom (or person who does the vacuuming, for that matter) to enjoy their time the way they want and not be cleaning up dust and dirt!
