Yeah this one right here goes out to all the baby’s mamas, mamas (Name that tune!) For real though, this post is for you husband of a tired mom or wife. She needs something she will use this Christmas. Don’t go buy a sweater at the Gap that she won’t ever get to wear. Just follow this guide and you’ll turn out just fine, promise.
We need it. Every day. Buy the best Starbucks has to offer and see us smile!
Throw this shirt on with leggings, your sunglasses (of course) and you’re ready. I love this shirt. Find it here for only $19.99! I love this site, the only caveat is that shipping can take up to 3 weeks, so ORDER NOW if you want it for Christmas! Bonus is that shipping is free, and your first order is 40% off! If you haven’t discovered Shein.com yet, you’re missing out!! Buy the shirt here and mark one off the list today!
No reason needed. You know why. They’re your kids too.
Dinner Subscription Boxes
Set up and pay for Hello Fresh or Blue Apron.
I have tried Hello Fresh, Blue Apron and others, and these are great gifts!
All the food arrives pre-packaged and ready to cook. No last minute grocery store runs for one missing ingredient with babies in tow! It’s all there! You select how often and what day you want the food sent as well, so this is perfect for whatever size family you have.
These are great gift ideas for the mom who’s tired of grocery shopping, cooking and just needs a break from it all for a little while.
Lilly Pulitzer Goodies
All the Lilly Pulitzer items are so bright, they can’t help but make even the most tired momma smile! I would love anything from the line. There are so many things to choose from, from beach bags to workout wear!
My favorites are here:
Sunglasses $48 Our eyes always look blood shot with dark circles under them from lack of sleep, so the least we ask for is to have cute sunnies, right?
Planner $30 Because lack of sleep makes us forget stuff. And it’s cute.
Wine Glasses $35 Because you know, wine > everything.
Kendra Scott Jewels
Anything from Kendra Scott is precious. My favorite currently is this bracelet.
E-Gift Card for Jane
I don’t have many friends who don’t love Jane.com. Seriously, you can find anything. Since we have a tendency to not use our gift cards because we are busy with everyday life and kids, ask her occasionally if she has used it yet. Maybe take the kids to the park or a movie, pour her a glass of wine and tell her to sit down at the computer and do some online shopping. (We can dream right, ladies?) Need help finding it? Click right here and you’re set!
When in doubt, go with chocolate. This awesome chocolate of the month club can’t ever fail you. For real.
My favorite Christmas stocking stuffer has to be chocolate truffles from Harry and David. My husband and I love to put these in the freezer and eat one after dinner for a special treat. They’re to die for!
A Babysitter and A Night Out
Book the babysitter, make the reservation and take her out. An extra special bonus would be a hotel night after for the two of you. Coming from an exhausted mom, the most special present I can remember receiving is when my husband told me to book a hotel for me and my best friend to visit and catch up. Just do it.
Just take the kids to your parents for a whole weekend occasionally. It will revive your wife, help her be a better mom, wife, and person. Promise!
Last words to the wise:
Don’t give her cash, she will spend it on groceries, the kid’s book fair money, a health insurance premium bill that got missed in the awesome Christmas cards coming in daily, or anything else that comes up.
Gift cards are good, but sometimes get put in the back of a drawer and forgotten about 🙁 Except for starbucks. We don’t lose those.
Never, never give anything weight loss related. Unless she BEGS for a new treadmill and picks it out specifically. No Weight Watchers Memberships. Just don’t.
When in doubt, always pick a size down. No size 8 lady wants to receive a size 12 dress from her husband “because it looked like it would fit.”
Keep your receipts. Always keep your receipts.
