Best Gifts for Mom
When lotions and potions are totally out, here’s what real moms crave this holiday season!
Brookstone i-need Soothing Foot Massager $199.99
OK, we know nothing beats a massage from her significant other, but this comes close (so close!), and it’s oh so perfect. Treat the lady to a special foot massage any time she likes. This foot massager incorporates ancient Asian principles of Shiatsu and acupuncture — and best of all, it’s heated!
iRobot Roomba 770 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets and Allergies $499
Long gone are the days of the barefoot and pregnant. Working moms hardly have a spare minute to breathe, let alone clean! And this gift is just a little bit of amazing. The Roomba 770 vacuums and leaves behind cleaner, healthier air, removing up to 98% of dirt, dust, and pet dander from your floors. You can turn it on, and it will clean the entire surface area of your home, even when you’re not there. Hello, miracles!
Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain 700-Watt Juice Extractor $99.95
Nothing says holiday detox quite like a juicer, and this one is superb! Fast, powerful, and easy to clean, the Breville Juicer is fab! Make smoothies, veggie juices, soups, and more with this great gift and fit into your skinny jeans that much quicker.
Poncho Baby $68
For the brand new mom, check out this super stylish cover up that allows mom to feed baby on the go. The chic, perfectly private poncho is made from a super-soft, breathable, 100-percent muslin cotton fabric and is uniquely designed to allow mom to see baby while providing total front and back coverage.
Vibram Lady Fivefingers Bikila LS Sports Shoes $54-$227.48
“Barely there” shoes are in! The latest research shows that typical running shoes support weak arches in our feet, causing foot injuries down the road. Vibram Fivefingers Sports Shoes are great because they stimulate the muscles in your feet and lower legs, creating faster, stronger runners. The perfect gift for fit moms!
Just because you’re giving a present to your lady doesn’t mean that the giver can’t enjoy some fun, too! Couples massages are a great way to treat yourselves while getting some alone time. The lovely Raven Spa in Santa Monica and Silver Lake offer great couples massages for the holiday season. Indulge!
DIY-IOU (‘Do It Yourself; I Owe You’)
Sometimes, the most precious gifts of all are do-it-yourself projects or simply an “I owe you.” Give mom a night of free babysitting so she can go out with the girls, or let her sleep in on a Saturday morning while you make her breakfast or take the kids to the park. Even though it’s not a “thing,” it will be greatly appreciated. Trust us!
