2020 Holiday Gift Guide for Moms

Welcome to our Holiday Gift Guide! This is my favorite project of the year. It's a large effort that I have been working on for months. We personally try all of the items and then share the best products and gift ideas in the gift guide. We hope that you enjoy this selection of gift ideas for 2020!

YogaClub.com is a monthly subscription service that delivers stylish and high quality activewear for a fraction of what I have been spending on my fitness wear.  You complete a survey so that a talented stylist is able to curate 3 pieces for your box.  You pay $79 monthly or bi-monthly based on your preference.  They select from beloved brands such as Beyond Yoga, Manduka, Niyama sol, Splendid, Teeki, Vie Active, and more. On average, each box contains $160 retail value worth of items.  They offer sizes XS to 3X.   So, how did they do for me? Scroll down to see!

My package contained the outfit above which was perfectly in sync with the style survey that I completed. Personally, I prefer neutral colors and super comfortable fabrics and styles.  My YogaClub.com stylist did a fantastic job for my preference.  I especially love that the deep colored top and leggings are comfortable and versatile. The bra is incredibly soft and comfortable. Plus, I love the pattern!  I was thrilled with my YogaClub.com experience, so I knew that it was perfect to feature in our Holiday Gift Guide. YogaClub.com gift packages start as low as $45 and are delivered as an e-gift making them the perfect last minute gift. This also includes free shipping with the contiguous U.S. Visit YogaClub.com!

U.S. Polo Assn. is an iconic brand that you will want to check out for the holiday season. They offer authentic clothing that has been officially sanctioned by the U.S. Polo Association, the governing body for the sport of polo in the U.S. since 1890.  I love the Mixed Cable Crew Neck Sweater shown above because it's incredibly soft and fits my body perfectly.  I also appreciate that it is machine washable.  I also love the Striped T-shirt Dress in the red plum color for the winter season.  This ultra-soft dress is comfortable and complements my figure.  Their designers are talented at creating flattering clothing.  You really can't go wrong with any of their sweaters or dresses. U.S. Polo Assn. clothing is available in over 180 countries at independent retail stores, department stores, U.S. Polo Assn. brand stores, and on the U.S. Polo Assn. website

State Flower shop offers gorgeous shirts and phone cases with state flowers, including everything from California wildflowers to Ohio's cultivated carnations.  Their shirts and phone cases are excellent quality and beautiful! Personally, as a Texan, I love their bluebonnet items.  Texans flock to fields of bluebonnets every year for photo sessions.  A state flower shirt or phone case is a lovely gift that is sure to help your gift recipient reminisce about happy memories. 

Love Leggings is a U.K. brand that is known for perfecting leggings. Their high quality leggings come in contemporary styles and colors. The designers pay careful attention to detail. They have you covered whether you are tall, petite, pregnant, or curvy! They use quality fabric so that none of their leggings are see-through. Their leggings are incredibly soft and cozy.  Personally, I am tall, so I was thrilled to learn that their tall leggings fit me perfectly. I am 5'10" and have the Black High Waisted Leggings and Light Grey Marl High Wasted Leggings that fit perfectly. I also have the Infinity Blue Marl Cropped Leggings that fit like a dream. Love Leggings are sold globally and are now available in the U.S.  These leggings are perfect for lounging with family throughout the holidays, working from home, or running errands.  They also have styles to pair with sweaters or other tops for work. We love Love Leggings!

Bombas offers cozy socks that moms will love. As a mom who buys socks for my family members, I am partial to Bombas because their excellent quality socks hold up to everyone in my family, including (a) my energetic preschooler who often forgets to put his shoes on before he runs outside, (b) my husband who runs 35+ miles a week, and (c) my tween who seems to wear out his shoes and pants at warp speed.   I'm always amazed that their socks survive despite their high energy levels. As a mom, I am not rough on my socks, but appreciate the excellent quality and have a different issue. I wear a size 9.5 shoes and find that many socks are labeled as fitting sizes "5 to 10". I'm on the higher end of this range and find it frustrating when socks advertise this range, but are too tight on me.  That's where Bombas comes in! They offer more targeted size ranges so that I am able to find socks that actually fit me. For instance, Bombas medium size socks fit women's sizes 8 to 10.5. Similarly, if you are a different size than me, you'll find that they offer a variety of sizes in close range.   Another reason that we love Bombas is that the company was founded with philanthropy as part of their mission. Socks are in high demand at homeless shelters.  Bombas has donated over 42 million pairs of socks or other needed clothing items over the years. The more that you buy, the more that they donate!  When you order high quality socks for your family, your purchase helps to support people in need. 

Sugarpova is a trendy brand that you may have seen featured by Food Network, U.S. Weekly, Rachel Ray In Season, or on Shark Tank. This brand was created by the multi-talented Maria Sharapova who is a perfectionist when it comes to her line of confections. I first became aware of this brand when my husband went on a business trip and brought me a gift home - the Milk Chocolate Covered Gummy Lips! As soon as I tried them, I knew that I had to feature this brand in our holiday gift guide. Sugarpova was designed to provide a much-deserved piece of indulgence. Their chocolates contain antioxidants. The gummies and truffles are made with real fruit flavors and vegetable extracts. They do not contain artificial flavoring. Sugarpova confections are perfect little treats for those who want to indulge in moderation.  My favorite is the Milk Chocolate Covered Gummy Lips. It's a combination that you may not expect, but somehow the gummy candy and chocolate complement each other in a unique way that is delicious. My son argues that the Pink Grapefruit Gummy Lips are the best. I think that there is merit to either argument because they are both amazing! Their truffles are also delicious. While I love them as gifts for moms, I also love the 50-count boxes because they are easy to divide into little gift bags for teachers or stocking stuffers. The Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Truffles are smooth and delicious. The Dark Chocolate Mocha Truffles are smooth and silky. This is a brand that is sure to be appreciated by moms!

Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique offers personalized gifts. The company began as a way to lend a helping hand to brides. Being a bride is often overwhelming, so this one stop shop for customized bridesmaid and bachelorette gifts has you covered! This company is amazing because they stay on top of the latest trends and pay meticulous attention to detail when they personalize items.  If you have a bride on your holiday gift list, they will love personalized gifts this year. If you are the mother of the bride, you may even want to order items for yourself and other family members this holiday season.  For instance, we love the Let's Stay In gift box that contains a personalized stemless cup and satin laced robe in a beautiful personalized box. If you have a groom on your list, also check out their brother website Groovy Groomsmen Gifts.

CeraVe offers fantastic skincare products that I have used for years. My dermatologist first recommended the brand to me because I have dry skin and other products caused too much irritation. In the fall and winter, I have laser treatments and rely on CeraVe products to gently cleanse and hydrate my dry skin. The CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser
 uses a foaming action to deeply cleanse and remove excess oil, dirt, and makeup. It contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin's natural moisture. It then contains niacinamide to calm the skin.  In the mornings, I apply CeraVe Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion to moisturize and protect against harmful UVA/UVB rays. I appreciate that this lightweight moisturizer seamlessly absorbs into my skin. This moisturizer uses hyaluronic acid to help retain skin's natural moisture.  The formulation is gentle and non-irritating.   In the evening, I wash my face again and then apply CeraVe's Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum because it helps to repair my skin's moisture barrier. I have extremely dry skin and the dryness is exacerbated by the laser treatments. This serum makes a big difference, especially in the first week after one of my laser treatments. I also use the CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. It's gentle on my skin and helps my skin to retain moisture. I also appreciate that it is lightweight.  I had to include CeraVe in this gift guide because it has been my favorite skincare brand for many years!

The OLAPLEX Holiday Hair Fix Gift Set is a gift that we featured last year which was so popular that it sold out quickly on their website. Some lucky readers reported that they were able to find it at Nordstrom after it sold out on the brand website. OLAPLEX is offering the Holiday Hair Fix Gift Set again this year for $60! This luxury set 
contains $84 worth of products. You'll want to order this sooner this later because it's a highly coveted holiday gift item. This haircare set is amazing and has helped to dramatically improve my overall hair health, strength, and texture.  I think that most moms go through phases where their hair needs extra help. Personally, I went through a phase after pregnancy where my hair became dry and brittle. It was a mess. Nothing was working until a friend told me to (a) reduce how often I wash my hair and (b) use the OLAPLEX system. This advice made a big difference and I'm glad that I finally learned about the bond technology. That's why the OLAPLEX Holiday Hair Fix gift set is part of our Holiday Gift Guide for Moms. These products truly helped to repair my hair. The kit includes four steps: (1) OLAPLEX No.3 Hair Perfector which is a pre-shampoo treatment to help repair damaged hair and reduce breakage and split ends, (2) OLAPLEX No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo that repairs, strengthens, and hydrates, (3) OLAPLEX No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner which repairs, strengthens, and hydrates, and (4) OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother that helps to repair, strengthen, hydrate, and eliminate frizz for up to 72 hours. In addition, I love the No. 7 Bonding Oil which is sold separately. This is a highly-concentrated, weightless reparative styling oil that dramatically increases shine, softness, and color vibrancy. N°7 minimizes flyaways and frizz, while providing UV/heat protection of up to 450°F.

ChapStick offers a variety of holiday themed items. Moms will love the ChapStick Total Hydration line that comes in festive snowflake packaging. These packs are great for stocking stuffers or to hang on the tree.  They come in 2-packs with Cooling Peppermint and Soothing Vanilla or Soothing Oasis and Coconut Hydration. We love them as gifts for moms, dads, children, teachers, and anyone else on your holiday list!

The NIGHT Pillow is a luxury that moms will love because a good night of sleep is priceless. This has been called "the most comfortable pillow in the world" by celebrities and customers.  I personally tried it and agree!  My husband even commented that it makes a big difference in the quality of my sleep and his sleep since I have been falling asleep quickly without tossing and turning. I never realized that I could fall asleep so quickly until I began using this pillow! The NIGHT Pillow features air light memory foam that self-adjusts to support every sleep position.  I sleep on my back and it's the perfect height and cushioning for me. The custom-fit mulberry silk pillowcase supports healthy, youthful skin and hair. The signature midnight black color negates light for deeper, more restorative sleep. This is a fantastic gift for moms who crave good quality sleep!

Sheets & Giggles deserves recognition for the awesome name of their company, but even more so for their incredibly cozy sheets and dedication to sustainability. It's easy to see why they are one of the fastest-growing bedding brands in the U.S. Their Eucalyptus lycocell sheets are hypallergenic, breathable, self-cooling, and naturally softer than cotton. Moms will love the cozy sheets this holiday season. Plus, they will love knowing that the gift comes from a brand that sources their Eucalyptus trees from sustainably managed, biodiverse farms. For each order received, they plant a new tree somewhere in the U.S. that is in need of reforestation. It's a gift that gives!

EZ Feet Slippers are a cozy gift that moms will appreciate now that the cold weather has arrived. These slippers use a special memory foam to make each step comfortable. This is a brand that we love because they are dedicated to quality and provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  They are even machine washable!

Laconiko is an award winning brand that offers top quality olive oils. Moms who enjoy cooking special meals will love this brand! This family owned business is a multi-generational operation from a family that cultivated 5,000+ olive trees in Greece. I loved reading that the father referred to the olive trees as his other children because he truly nurtured his orchard of olive trees. I also love that his children expanded the business with the creation of their award winning olive oils that are now sold in the U.S. Their olive oils truly are exceptional and deserving of awards.  We recommend the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Black Truffle Olive Oil for holiday gifts. Good olive oil makes a big difference in recipes, so this is a gift that will continue to give as moms use the award winning olive oil in many meals.
