Gift Guide: For your Mom & MIL

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve // thirteen

For some reason, my mom is SO HARD to Christmas shop for! This year, I had her put together a little list of items she would want for Christmas to get some ideas. Some things she named included this Barefoot Dreams robe (it’s expensive for a robe, but there’s a reason for that: it’s AMAZING!), a nice blanket, cashmere gloves, a silk pillowcase and a leather wallet. All of these items are super luxurious – in fact, I want to put them on my Christmas List too! Especially the leather Gucci wallet… it’s gorgeousss. Another unique item for a gift is this cookbook – my intern recommended it because she said her mom is obsessed with it and uses it all the time.

Lastly, I think the Aera diffuser would be a great gift! I personally own and love my Aera diffuser it’s the only diffuser I use in our home! What really sets it apart is that you can control the adjustable settings from you phone and all of the fragrances are pet-friendly (unlike many traditional essential oils). Right now the entire website is 20% off, including both the diffuser and all of the fragrances! The “Holiday Delights” fragrance pack is great for the winter months (I loveee the “Snowfall” fragrance), but I’m partial to the aromatherapy… they’re made with pure essential oils and are soo calming. The “Support Breathe” one is my favorite because it’s a blend of eucalyptus, tea tree and pine. 

If you have any other gift ideas for your mom, I’d love to hear!

    Why is it that I’m not a mom, but low-key want these gifts too?! Hahah I guess winter weather + finals week has me wanting to just curl up in a comfy robe and sip my troubles away via coffee… LOL! Thanks for the gift ideas girl!

    Love the gift ideas! One thing to note since you have pets (and are so sweet about how much you love them!)…there’s a lot of misinformation floating around about diffusers and essential oils around pets, and the ASPCA is a good resource to research how they might affect yours based on their specific health history. Even when not in direct contact (ie via a diffuser), they can be harmful to our fur babies, particularly oils like tea tree and pine. You’re great about researching topics and figuring out what works for you/your home and I feel the same way, so hope this helps!

    I own that Gucci wallet in the pink color and it is ah-ma-zing! So easy to use and actually holds quite a bit! It’s definitely more than your usual wallet but in the lux world the price is pretty great!

    Love the diffuser! I finally tried your green smoothie recipe because I am trying to get that glowy skin before my wedding and oh my goodness it is delicious! I find your pre-wedding posts so helpful and comforting as the planning gets stressful. Thank you 🙂

  12. These are fantastic gift ideas for any Mom or MIL. We actually gifted my boyfriend’s mom a diffuser, too! It’s all she wanted this year!
