To help you find something that feels meaningful, we’ve rounded up 64 of the best Christmas gifts (and Hanukkah gifts and nondenominational winter-solstice gifts) a mom could ask for. Whether she has picked up a new hobby like indoor gardening during quarantine or whether she’s just looking for a something fancy and pretty, you’ll find the perfect present on the list below.

For the mom who loves cashmere

You can mix and match this set — which comes in red, camel, gray, and black — to ensure she stays cozy from head to toe.

For the mom who loves warm socks

Soft and cozy lined slipper socks (with no slip grips) that will match her favorite sweaters.

For the mom who wants a warm coat

Reviewers praise how warm and stylish this puffer is. One note: It runs large, so you can layer up, but if you worry it’ll overwhelm your frame, size down.

For the mom who is also a plant mom

Get her something pretty for her other babies (her succulents).

For the mom who needs some me-time

A fuzzy robe is a necessity for self-care days — just be sure to throw in a bath bomb and some wine.

For the mom who loves fancy fragrances

Her new signature scent as well as an addition to the decorative soaps you’re not allowed to use — all in one chic box.

For the mom who is busier than ever

The perfect gift for an essential worker, a medical professional, a reluctant homeschooler, or anyone else whose life has gotten more hectic during the pandemic.

For the mom whose house is always impeccable

She’ll love the fresh, clean scent of this candle. Once it’s burned down, she can use the glass holder to store things.

For the mom who loves wine

She’ll want to bring out these colorful glasses every time she has guests.

For the mom who likes to sleep in

Once she tries matching pajamas, she’ll never go back to mismatched sweats.

Available in sizes XS through XL.

For the gardener mom

She can hang this in the kitchen for a hint of summer even in January.

For the mom who loves to coordinate

Any good sweater can use a good scarf, and this gray set is the perfect pair.

For the mom who hates fuss

Your mom is as neutral as Switzerland, both when it comes to picking sides between you and and your brother and when it comes to nail colors. This set contains lots of flattering soft tones, and the polish lasts forever.

For the mom who loves to cook

This handy cutting board features a prep side with a slot for a cell phone or recipe card and a carve side with deep channels to catch drippings.

For the mom who’s curious about wellness supplements

These chocolate bites are not only functional — they’re infused with plant collagen to improve skin elasticity and texture after two weeks — they’re also delicious. It’s all the fun of eating adult M&M’s but with actual clinically proven results.

For the mom who misses wearing lipstick

A perfect lip option for 2022: It hydrates your lips and offers just the slightest tint of color, and it won’t stick to your mask.

For the mom who’s still wearing lipstick, mask be damned

She’ll love these gently scented lip colors from Hermès. Rose Nuit is a beautiful soft pink.

For the mom who loves Asian food

These starter packs have all the seasonings you need to create the dishes on the package. The sampler pack features Vietnamese lemongrass barbecue, Thai larb, and Filipino sisig. All you have to do is add the protein and serve with rice or noodles.

For the mom who complains about her tired feet

This massager combines heat with air compression and rolling balls to soothe aching feet. Save an extra $10 when you apply Amazon’s coupon, a deal that will make any frugal mom happy.

For the mom who loves fancy beauty products

This is less a hand cream and more an anti-aging skin-care treatment that happens to be for hands. Yes, it moisturizes (deeply!), but it also gently exfoliates, helps fade age spots, and boosts firmness over time.

For the mom who values comfort

Known for their cushy soles and flexible shoes, these Allbirds are some of the most comfortable sneakers out there. Plus you can throw them in the wash when they get dingy.

For the mom who needs a break

These supremely luxurious sheet masks are a good way to force your mom to take a breather. To fully enjoy these, she’ll need to get away from everything, lie down someplace quiet, close her eyes, and relax — for at least 15 minutes. Her skin will feel better and softer afterwards, too.

For the active mom

Whether she’s streaming yoga classes or doing HIIT workouts at home, these leggings will come in handy.

Available in sizes XS through XL.

For the mom who loves diamonds

Here’s a diamond necklace that won’t break the bank.

For the mom who loves baths, part one

An incredibly indulgent gift of the kind you know she won’t buy for herself.

For the mom who loves baths, part two

With space for a glass of wine, snacks, and an iPad, this bath tray will bring her so much joy.

For the mom who takes loungewear seriously

Regular sweats just won’t do — opt for these plush wide-leg pants for luxury lounging.

For the mom who always has cold feet

These colorful, fluffy slippers will be especially nice on a chilly winter morning.

For the mom who values a good night’s sleep

Reviewers rave about the soft texture and the way it really does help you sleep through the night.

For the mom who’s just a little extra

For the mom who loves ceramics

People obsess over the dishes from Heath, but they’re kind of expensive. Try Noritake Colorwave for the same aesthetic at a fraction of the cost.

For the mom who loves roses

This blend of four types of roses housed in an ultraslim bottle is a refreshing update to the classic perfume formula.

For the mom who loves a good coat

She always made sure you wore your coat; now gift her a good one. Choose between statement-making shades like pink and coral or opt for neutral tones for this wool-blend cocoon coat.

For the mom who taught you black goes with everything

This classic candle looks even more chic in black glass that reflects the candle flame.

For the mom who loves Meghan Markle

For the mom who really loves Meghan Markle

She already has the Veja sneakers; gift her this waterproof jacket that’s Meghan-approved.

For the mom who always orders ventis

A spritz of this is like taking that first, life-affirming sip of coffee in the morning.

For the mom who could use more spa days

This fancy mask for the face, neck, and décolletage is as luxurious as they get.

For the high-tech home-chef mom

A gift for yourself, really, when she makes you some guilt-free fries.

For the mom who’s always digging for her ChapStick

This magical balm makes lips dewy and glowy, and the pale-pink case is hard to miss.

For the outdoorsy mom

Blundstone boots will hold up to any terrain.

For the trendy mom

Statement ring(s): This multipurpose ring can be worn together or separately.

For the mom who loves to accessorize

Gift her a twist on ’90s hoops that she might even let you borrow.

For the mom who rarely puts her hair up

Yes, it’s expensive, but if she likes to wear her hair straight, this is the Maserati of straighteners. Give her the gift of smooth, damage-free hair.

For the mom who just got into making bread

Every chef needs Le Creuset. It’s practically a commandment.
