Mom might tell you that youre the greatest gift of all, but lets get real: She deserves to have something special under the tree this holiday season and on special occasions throughout the year. Your arts and crafts skills probably arent what they used to be, and regardlessa macaroni necklace just wont cut it anymore. Its time to step up your gift-giving game.

A Christmas gift for mom should reflect who she is beyond her parental duties. Maybe she loves getting dressed up and needs something sparkly to add to her jewelry collection. Perhaps shes endlessly busy and wants a subscription to a food delivery service that saves her a trip to the grocery store. Or maybe shes got a bit of wanderlust, and could use a new suitcase to take on her next adventure. Her personality and her passions should be the driving force behind what you wrap up for her.
