Holiday Gift Guide For Moms

1. Day of pampering. Massage, pedicure, manicure, facial. Even a gift card to get her hair done is always appreciated!
4. Comfy socks. I bought myself a pair of fuzzy socks on day at Old Navy and have basked in their comfort since. Several of my mom friends snatched a pair as well after feeling mine.
5. Humans of New York Stories. I also thoroughly enjoyed Girl on The Train and Fates and Furies.Great stories to read and break away from reality.
6. Subscription to Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc.
7. Yoga pants. I have yet to meet a mom who doesn't love (read live in) hers.
8. Coffee mugs. I'm kind of obsessed with coffee mugs lately but they've come in handy for my morning coffees, afternoon teas, and hot apple ciders in the evening.
9. Soft blanket. I'm a fan of all things soft and comfy. I love this soft blanket for snoozes on the couch, cold nights, and reading stories to my kids.
10. Vacation. We took a childless vacation this past fall and it was wonderful and rejuvenating to get away for a few days! 
11. An infusion water bottle.  Add your favorite fruit for a tastier way to get plenty of water!
12. Camera.  Lauren loves her new a6000.  Shoots like a DSLR but at a fraction of the size.  Perfect to slip in a purse or bag to get better photos of the kids at play!  You can even wirelessly transmit photos from the camera to your phone to share or post on social media.
13.  Phone holder. Perfect for keeping your phone visible for GPS navigation while keeping the phone out of your hands in the car.  The suction cup mounts to the windshield and the clip holds nearly any phone. 
14.  A day off.  Send mom on her way with a day to herself.  No kids.  No schedule. Or a nap, a really long nap.
