Christmas is only a few days away, so be sure not to forget mom! In our house, I typically grab my own gifts, because in the past it was my husband’s busiest time of year at work, so he never had time to shop. Growing up, I recall my dad meticulously planning my mom’s gifts and going to get them together or working on them together. So, whether you are a husband searching for a gift idea, or if you are shopping for yourself, here are my Top 7 Gifts for Mom. You can easily grab all of these from Walmart.com so it makes shopping very easy for the man in your life!
KitchenAid® Artisan® Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
The KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer is a staple piece in the kitchen and easily makes my top gift list. As a mom, one of my favorite things to do is bake with my kids and they think the mixer is incredibly fun. Not only is it fun, but it has 10 speeds to thoroughly mix, knead and whip ingredients quickly and easily. It also comes in over 20 colors to best match your own personal style or kitchen. My favorite thing about the stand mixer is its versatility. You can use it for traditional baking or even things like shredding chicken. You can turn your stand mixer into the culinary center of your kitchen. With over 10 different attachments, you can make everything from fresh pasta, to burgers, veggie noodles, ice cream and more! You can even core an apple and so much more! It the perfect gift for anyone on your list! (or for yourself!)
KitchenAid® Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment
This brings me to the next gift idea, attachments for your mixer. I would start with the food grinder attachment, because it allows you to transform ingredients for wholesome, fresh recipes. Think fresh salsa, grinding meat, making salmon patties – you name it. There are so many recipes you can make. The fine and coarse grinding plates make it easy to create a variety of fresh inventive foods. It is powered by the hub of KitchenAid Stand Mixer and sold separately at Walmart.com.
I love capturing family memories so a DSLR Camera easily makes my list of top mom gifts. I know my job and this blog requires I document lots of moments, however, to be honest, I have always been a big fan of pictures. I love taking pictures and being able to look back on little moments. I like a DSLR camera best because it gives you great quality images and with some models, you can even shoot great video!
Yes, I know it’s a vacuum, but this mama would love it as a Christmas gift! A robot vacuum is completely different than a normal vacuum, it does all of the work and gives you time back. I bought myself one as a housewarming gift when we moved into our new house this past year and it was one of the best items I have ever bought. I love how they work, and I highly recommend them!
Never have I ever been mad about receiving a super soft blanket as gift. I seriously could never have enough blankets. I typically like to keep one in each room of our house so that I always have one around. I also enjoy them to be luxurious, cozy and pretty large. Just last night I was cozied up on the couch with my little family under a blanket, so I like them big enough to fit all of us. Comfy blankets are not only functional, but they remind me of great memories too!
Again with the comfort, slippers are a great gift to keep your feet warm and stay comfy throughout winter. I received a pair of slippers as a gift last year and have gotten so much use out of them! I wear them almost every night in Winter, so they were a really great bang for our buck because they get a ton of use.
Jewelry is always a good idea. Walmart.com has such a great variety of jewelry from watches, to earrings, to necklaces – you name it. They have a ton of name brands at great prices and even unique pieces. I love that you can find something in all price ranges. You can find a thousand-dollar watch, or a thirty-dollar watch. They really have something for everyone.
I hope this list helps you get a great idea for the mom in your life, or for yourself! You can even share this post’s link to your husband as a clue. This year, I am soaking in my KitchenAid Stand Mixer and grinder attachment from Walmart and you can be too! I can’t wait to use it more throughout the year. What is the top item on your list this year? I would love to hear in the comments.
