Only one month left until Christmas, it's time to buckle down and finish up your Christmas gift shopping. If you're struggling to come up with gift ideas, not to worry! You have found the ULTIMATE Christmas gift guide. Geared towards mamas with little ones, you will find gift ideas for everyone on your list! To make it a bit easier to read through, I've broken it up into two sections; Part I is gift ideas for all the people and Part II is for all the kids. I've even included gift ideas for YOU to add to YOUR Christmas wish list. Sometimes it's hard for us to think of gifts to spoil ourselves but every once in awhile, it's a good thing to do.
Not only are there gifts for every person on your Christmas gifting list, there are gifts in EVERY price range, I did my best to make sure there were all price ranges represented in each category because no matter what your gifting budget is, you can still find something adorable. Let's jump in and get started!
*Note that prices listed are subject to change as I have no control over the manufacturers' pricing.
Part 1: Gifts for All The People
Mama's Wish List
1. Mama Love Collective Box
Shower Her With Love Box | $45
I love the mission behind Mama Love, their goal is to spread joy to mamas with beautiful boxes full of goodies curated just for mamas. Each month I review the latest Mama Love Collective Box and I am completely obsessed, many of the goodies I've gotten in each box so far, I use on a daily basis. I recommend requesting the "Shower Her With Love" box for your Christmas gift as it comes with the most goodies.
2. Phone Case
[affiliate link] Mama Bear Phone Case | $7.99
A phone case is a fun, practical(ish) and inexpensive gift or stocking stuffer. If your kids are anything like mine, they are always stealing my phone to pretend to talk on it so having a case on my phone is a must.
3. Mom T-Shirt
[affiliate link] Mom Life T-Shirt | $24.99
Adorable mom-themed graphic tees are all over Instagram and are the perfect addition to your Christmas wish list. I always recommend going a size up so you don't end up with a skin-tight tee because #momlife 😬
4. Fancy Makeup
[affiliate link] Lorac Pro Palette 3 | $44
One of my favorite things to ask for for Christmas is fancy makeup. I went through a phase in high school where I basically only bought makeup at Sephora (and I had like no money so anytime I got a little bit, it was immediately spent on makeup 🤷🏼♀️) and I do still have a love for fancy makeup. The Lorac Pro Palette is a great one for your Christmas wish list because the colors can be worn literally every day!
5. KitchenAid Mixer
[affiliate link] KitchenAid Tilt-Head Stand Mixer in Empire Red
I love my KitchenAid, I've had it for about five years now and it's still going strong! And the attachments that you can get for the mixer allow you to do all kinds of fun stuff like spiralize veggies or make applesauce without peeling/coring the apples.
[affiliate link] Certified Refurbished Apple iPad Air | $264.79
My husband works in IT and he's bought certified refurbished Apple products before, the work just as well as brand new ones but tend to be a bit cheaper. I love my iPad, and the boys both have one too (Daniel, my 1-year-old has a pretty old, slow one) that they play educational games on and I use mine to watch Netflix/Hulu/Amazon in our bedroom because we don't have a TV and it's great to pull up recipes on when you're cooking in the kitchen.
7. Spa Gift Card
You can look up spas that are local to you if you're not sure where to get one to, on Spa Finder. Treat yourself to a massage or a facial or simply get your nails done and take some time to relax.
8. Mom-Themed Necklace
Personalized Mom Bar Necklace | $28-$45
These dainty mama necklaces are also super popular right now and for good reason, they are adorable. Etsy has a ton of amazing options and this bar necklace is just one of the many adorable options, take a browse around Etsy (try searching "mom necklace") and you are sure to find a pretty necklace to ask your hubby...I mean Santa...for for Christmas.
9. Notebook or Planner
[affiliate link] But First, Coffee Notebook or Planner | $16-$26
Ya'll know how much I love Minted! Did you know that Minted sells more than just cards and invitations?! They have so many amazing, customizable products like this adorable But First, Coffee Journal is adorable.

[affiliate link] The Body Shop Body Butter in Satsuma | $5.70
Pampering gifts are my favorite things to give to my mama friends, we don't take enough time to take care of ourselves so I like to make sure I give mamas something that allows them to take even just a few minutes for themselves.
Lindbergh Candle Co. Travel Tin Candles | $11
I received the December Morning travel tin candle at an event I went to a few years ago, the owner of Lindbergh Candle Co., Savannah, was one of the even hosts. The December morning candle is absolutely amazing. It legit smells like Christmas, making it the perfect Christmas gift! Another great candle brand is my friend's company, Bright Side Candle Co. All of her candles are hand poured, are paraben, petroleum and phthalate free, and are 100% soy, there's no fillers or additives.
15. Natural Nail Polish
[affiliate link] BONTIME set of 6 natural nail polishes | $14.99
I'm trying to switch over to natural nail polishes and the colors in this set look really pretty and it's not super expensive.

25. French Press
[affiliate link] Caffeina French Press | $14.95
We now have [affiliate link] a Keurig at home because my husband drinks most of his coffee at work so when he has it at home, it's easier to just throw a K-cup in quick but we used to have a French Press and my husband loved it. He found it relaxing to take time to brew coffee using the French Press. Be sure to pair it with freshly ground coffee that is ground for French Press (regular grind will NOT work). If you need a tutorial for how to use a French Press, this is a great one on YouTube.
26. Funny T-Shirt
[affiliate link] Shrute Farms Tee Shirt | $11.95-$24.94
I am legitimately thinking about getting this shirt for my own husband, we are big fans of The Office. Your husband will love a t-shirt related to his favorite TV show, Amazon has tons of options if you type in the title of his favorite show + t-shirt.
27. Movie Theater Gift Card
Gift Card to Your Local Movie Theater
The perfect gift for a family would be a fun night out! Bigger families don't get to things like go to the movies very often so a gift card, even if it only covers some of the cost, makes a big difference! You can pair it with some candy and treats for them to take with them to the theater.
28. Family Portrait Ornament
Custom Family Ornament | $20-$30
Give your friends a gift they can enjoy year after year. I'd kind of like to get one for my family each year so we can see how our family has grown and changed. These custom ornaments from KT's Canvases on Etsy are just beyond adorable.

Tickets or a Season Pass to a zoo or aquarium near where you live
If you are more into gifting "experiences" rather than "things," then this suggestion is perfect for you! I wish we had a cool aquarium in our little city because we would totally be there all of the time.
35. Water Table
[affiliate link] Little Tikes Waterpark Play Table | $29.99
