Real Moms Reveal... What We Really Want for Christmas

Shopping for a mom this holiday season? Here’s a heads up–we don’t want hand cream! Or candles or anything that’s really for our kids, for that matter.

The key to gifting a mom is not to overthink it. At the end of the day, we’re women too and 9 times out of 10 we really want the same thing every other woman wants. Nice accessories and things that will make our lives easier.

So back away from the #1 mom pot holder and reach for one of these gifts for moms instead.

I love the neutral color of this watch band and the wrap styling is so cool. Plus, what mom doesn’t need a little help staying on time? — Jeanine


I finally got my first pair of Reva flats after obsessing about them for years, and I’m happy to report that they’re worth every penny. If there’s a Tory Burch Santa out there… I’ll take one in every color please. — Farah


I would never spend this much on sunglasses for myself, which is why they’re on my wish list. I love that you can interchange the lenses and the classic aviator style is timeless. — Courtenay


I love reading, but I haven’t started a new book because my back is still recovering from lugging around the last one I read. I’m dreaming of reading my next book on one of these… — Jeanine


I vacuum so much that I never put the vacuum cleaner away. It just sits there, an eyesore waiting to be plugged in. So a little Roomba that I can program and do the dirty work for me? Who wouldn’t want one? Actually, I’d need two… one for upstairs, too. — Farah


What’s not to love about this fabulous Barbour coat? It’s warm, it’s cute and I can wear it anywhere. It’s casual enough for every day, but also polished enough for special events. — Courtenay
