5 Perfect Holiday Gifts for Mom

sponsored by Pandora

By: Sarah

The holiday’s have arrived and with it the festive decor, glittering lights, and memorable music that we’ve all grown to adore. Even though I’m not a fan of snow, there is something cozy about the Christmas season that makes me embrace the cold in ways that I would never any other time of year.

In January of this year, I got married which means that I have nearly twice the amount of gifts to buy; both for my mom and my mother-in-law, my dad and my father-and-law, and the list goes on. This is my guide to gifting for moms, whether it’s your mom, mother-in-law, or a mother-like figure in your life.

Pandora Ice Necklace Luminous Gift Set

Their winter 2018 collection gleams with iconic and cosmic looks, from eye-catching elegance to space-age spins on festiveness. It is the perfect gift to illuminate mom’s world and her wardrobe with lustrous new jewelry that brings both confidence and delight.


My favorite part of their new collection is their Ice Necklace Luminous Gift Set. The long-lasting, hand finished craftsmanship of this collection shines through with its baguette-cut stones hugged by timeless sterling silver. The elegant matching earring and necklace set will bring out mom’s confidence and sophistication. Each stone is set by hand using centuries-old crafting techniques combined with modern technology. It is the perfect gift for the holiday season.


Triple F.A.T. Goose Down Parka Jacket

I’ve lived in the Northeast my whole life and this is the warmest and most fashionable jacket I’ve ever owned, which is why I think it is a great gift idea for those that live in a place that frequently has below freezing temperatures. The jacket is made with premium white goose down and has gorgeous Canadian coyote fur around the hood. The jacket’s exterior has a hydrophobic nanotech coating that creates a durable 10,000mm water resistant outer layer fabrication. This nanotechnology beads off water and oil based stains effortlessly, while allowing the parka to remain breathable.

All Triple F.A.T. Goose styles in the SAGA collection feature high grade accessories such as premium YKK zippers, soft fleece lined pockets, premium snap buttons, an inner chest pocket, and more. Plus, the coat has a cute little belt to show your shape. This is one jacket that I constantly get compliments on when I leave the house!

An Artifact Uprising Custom Made Photo Album

There is no better way to share your favorite memories from 2018 than by creating a custom, high quality photo album for mom. Artifact Uprising is my brand of choice when it comes to printed photo albums because their photo books are equal to the quality you would get in a professionally printed book. For albums like this, I would recommend pulling your favorite travel moments from the past years or special events that happened in 2018. They also do printed calendars, cards, frames, and prints.

Kattee Women's Vintage Genuine Leather Tote Shoulder Bag

Truth be told, my mom loved this so much that I already bought it for her! This bag is incredibly well priced for its quality. It is made with high quality imported vintage waxed genuine cow leather. The bag comes in four colors; black, sorrel, orange-red, and grey. It comes with top handles and an adjustable, removable shoulder strap. The bag is big enough to hold my 15 inch laptop, and camera so I love it for traveling since I work on the go and take tons of photos. Best part? It is only $80 but looks like it is $500.

Williams-Sonoma "Spiced Chestnut" 9 Oz Fragrant Candle

Nothing says the holidays and winter season like this spiced chestnut candle from Williams-Sonoma. This brings back memories of the cozy nights by the fireplace, decorating cookies, and listening to holiday music. The fragrance is derived from premium-quality essential oils and has a 42 hour burn time. This line also comes in several wintery scents, including spiced pumpkin, mulled cider, and wintery forest. Pair it with their matching lotions and soap for a well-rounded aromatic gift for mom.

That’s a wrap (no pun intended)! Those are my top five gifts for mom this year. Your mom did so much for you so treat her like the queen she is this season. Happy Holidays!
