Practical Gifts Your Mom Might Actually Love

It’s December already, and Christmas decorations are all over the place. For most people, this means they’re counting down the days till they see what Santa’s got them this year around. For us, it meant having a special encounter with the one and only Santa, in which he revealed to us some of his secrets.

So if you’re wondering what to get your mom this Christmas (or generally), here are some Secret Santa practical gift ideas your mom might actually love:

Make the House More Comfy For Her

1- A Water Softener

Has your mom complained about how no matter how many times the dishes have been washed, they’re still full of white spots after they’re left to dry? This might sound silly to you, but it causes her a lot of mental stress and embarrassment with the guests. Getting her a water softener will make her year! Check out this water softener guide for ideas.

2- A Cheeky Doormat

Well. It will help with welcoming the visitors.

3- Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker

Your mom will love to know she can whip up a meal in less than 30 minutes.

4- iRobot Roomba 960

This one’s a bit over the expensive end, but it will make all your mom’s dreams come true: A self-cleaning house! Well, not literally, but close enough. Roomba is a robot that will take the liberty of cleaning the house, no complaints. iRobot’s super popular new model is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant so the vacuum will start up as soon as she says the word.

You can also gift her a bathtub tray to just sit back and enjoy the bath while reading, sipping a drink or just watching her favorite show. You can even make it yourself!

3- Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser

For Health & Fitness Enthusiastic Moms

1- Self-Rolling Smart Yoga Mat

This watch tracks heart rate, exercise, and sleep stages have 15+ exercise mods and can store/downloaded 300+ songs. Quite the workout companion your mom will love in her fitness journey.

There are some constants in life we take for granted, and more often than not we forget to express just how grateful we are for them. Our moms are usually those ever-loving constants. So no matter how it may seem when your mom doesn’t really like any of the gifts you get her, a thoughtful gift that might ease her day, relieve her stress or help her through her years will definitely do the job. Trust us, Santa knows.
