What great Christmas gifts are you planning to get for your mom this year? Last year you gave her the kick-ass coffee maker and she hasn’t stopped bragging about it to her neighbors ever since. This year you feel like you need to top it? Here are some Christmas gift ideas for your mom based on her style.

Comfort-loving Mom

Your mom is kind of a homebody who chooses to stay in even during time off. She just likes to relax, perhaps tend to her garden or play with the dog in the backyard. She’d rather entertain at home and invite her friends and family over rather than going out. Here are some Christmas gift ideas for this type of mom:Dakota Slipper by UGG Australia

  • A pair of luxurious slippers to keep her warm on the chilly nights
  • An Amazon Prime membership so that she can get two-day free shipping on things she needs at home, as well as getting streaming of thousands of movies. She won’t need to get out of the house if she really doesn’t want to anymore!
  • A basic photo frame with a restored old family photo in it—the most treasured gift I’ve given to my mom was a picture of her and me together. She keeps it close to her on her bedside table.

Artsy Mom

Your mom always had that artistic vibe in her.  She loves painting, photography and art museum hopping. Here are some Christmas gift ideas for the artsy mom:Thro by Marlo Lorenz 4182 Fancy Peacock 16 by 16-Inch Pillow

Chef Mom

You mom loves to cook. She equates love to cooking and sharing. Her kitchen is her sanctuary, and it also where the center of the house/universal is. When people visit, they are always hovering around the kitchen where you mom is putting the final touch on her masterpieces. Here are some Christmas gift ideas for the chef mom:Christmas Gifts for Mom - Shun Chef Knife

  • Cook’s Illustrated magazine subscription—this is hands-down the best cooking magazine out there. It explains to you the rationale and sometimes sciences of cooking techniques. They fine-tune their recipes hundreds of times before publishing on the magazine. Your mom will be the best cook on the block (if she isn’t already). And you will visit her more often to taste these delicious creations. It’s truly a win-win-win!
  • A Shun Chef’s knife—a divine knife that she may decide to put up as an art piece. Yes, it’s that amazingly beautiful. While you are at it, you should also get her a honing steel.
  • Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron French Oven—she can never have too many of these gorgeous and versatile cookware.
  • A John Boos maple chopping block—these chopping blocks are used by celebrity chefs throughout the US, including Charlie Trotter, Ming Tsai, Paul Kahan, Susan Spicer, Mary Sue Milliken, and Susan Feninger. In addition, chef’s featured on “The Food Network”, such as Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse, prepare meals every day on John Boos cutting boards. If you don’t know who these people are, don’t worry about it. Just get the chopping block.

Healthy Mom

Your mom has always been providing the best and healthiest food to the family. You open her refrigerator and the food you find there are usually defined by what they lack: gluten-free, hormone-free, fat-free, dairy-free, antibiotic-free and free-range. She exercises regularly and urges you to do the same. Her ultimate hope and dream is for the whole family to live long and thrive.
