You’re not really going to get Mom a last-minute gift card for Christmas, are you? Show her that she raised you right with a gift that’s personalized, thoughtful, sweet and caring -- just like her baby, of course. 

Whether she is into working out, living a sustainable green life, getting a good night's sleep or looking stylish and feeling great, you can find something for her on our list below.Wrap up whatever you choose and buy a card sweet enough to tape to the fridge. She’ll say you shouldn’t have. But you really should.

And if you’re all set for your own mother but need a gift for a friend who's expecting or a playground-duty pal who gets you through your own #momlife, you’re also in the right place. 

Below, we unearthed the best gifts for moms -- no matter her personality type -- from across the internet.

She’s got your love to keep her warm during the holiday. But when you’re not around, this cozy scarf does the job. (Just don’t start borrowing it all the time.)

The year you were born. The year she met, or married, Dad. The year she got her PhD or made partner. Pick a pendant to honor your mom's favorite moment in her life and give her the perfect gift. Make sure to have the Kleenex handy when you give it to her.

A great gift for new moms! Big enough to act as a diaper bag, but also stylish and roomy enough to double as your work tote, this beloved fashion staple has Mom covered for every scenario.


Lululemon

We know, we know -- moms in yoga pants is a stereotype. But if it’s one your Zen mom leans into hard, at least get her a fancy pair perfect for her active lifestyle that will make her look and feel awesome and show off all the hard work in the gym or yoga studio.


Anastasia Beverly Hills
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette
Ulta
Anastasia Beverly Hills

We love this stylish, beautiful palette of neutral-but-gorgeous eyeshadows because it’s full of blendable matte, metallic and iridescent shades that she’ll keep reaching for all year. Glam is the gift that keeps on giving, let’s be real. 


Stojo

She packed your lunch all those years, now return the favor with a chic, sustainable version of the collapsible camp cup. Pair it with a restock of her favorite cold brew coffee, tea or, hey, a bottle of wine.


Destination Maternity

One way to brighten up a new mom’s less-than-stellar night's sleep: Buy her a nursing nightgown that’s so pretty, it could pass for a little black dress.


Pia Rossini
Pia Rossini Faux Fur Beanie Hat

Baby, it’s cold outside! The fur is faux, but the glamour is real. So cozy and perfect for Mom to wear around the holiday, right?


Monica Rich Kosann
Monica Rich Kosann Petite Sterling Silver Initial Locket Necklace
Neiman Marcus

This locket is a no-brainer and the perfect one-of-a-kind gift. The only questions: Which of Mom’s favorite pictures will you place inside? And what initial will you choose for this thoughtful gift -- her first initial, last initial or an "M" for Mom?


H&D

Here’s a double whammy: Pick up her go-to perfume or essential oil, and present it along with this gorgeous crystal perfume bottle. Every time she sees it on her vanity, she’ll think of you and what a brilliant kid she raised. Win-win.
