Whether the wonder woman in your life is an expectant mom, new mom or a master Miyagi mom, she deserves to be spoiled this Christmas with a gift as unique, witty and perfect as she is. But let’s be honest, Christmas shopping isn’t for the faint-hearted. The pressure to find the perfect gift is at times more than a spouse, significant other, child or friend can bare. (My husband gets anxiety even thinking about it!)
Every Christmas we have the best of intentions to blow the mom in our life away with our masterful sleuth gift-giving juju, but before we know it December 24th is waving “hello” with a condescending smirk.
So, instead of panicking this year, we thought we would help get that Christmas shopping engine of yours going with a few helpful hints of what we moms actually want. Try these on for size—or don’t. Just don’t blame us when December 24th rides off into its high and mighty sunset of smirkdom.
