She’s always been there for you, so show your mom some love this holiday with gifts she’ll be sure to love!
Every year our Editors at SLH hunt for and find great favorites at excellent prices. This year we really think we’ve hit it out of the park.
Take a look for yourself! We’ve included links to every product on our list so if you see something perfect for your Mom, you can get it immediately and have one less list item for your holiday…let’s get shopping!
Does your Mom live for hitting the slopes? Unlike all the time she’s spent perfecting her moves, those snow goggles she’s had forever are not getting better with age. Most experts will tell you that even a well-cared for set of goggles should probably be replaced every 2 to 3 years. So if your powder-loving Mom is in the market for a new pair, grab her a fresh pair from Knockaround. They’re the official snowgoggle and sunglass brand of the US Ski and Snowboard, so you know the quality is top notch. One of our favs is the Lilac Powder. It’s a new edition to their Slingshot collection, with a cool, mirrored lilac color that’s unique, just like mom. Bonus – it comes with an extra low-light lens that Mom can quickly swap out (thanks to Knockaround’s Magnetic Interchangeable Lens System).
These super high-rise leggings from the Peloton + lululemon collab are giving major flare and flair. The dark green is such a great neutral, mom won’t have any trouble finding new wardrobe combinations. Made with buttery soft Nulu fabric that’s four-way stretch, sweat-wicking capabilities, and feels super airy, these also have added Lycra® fiber for stretch and shape retention. If your mom lives in her leggings, she’s going to love these.
Peloton Apparel + lululemon, Groove Super High-Rise Flared Pant $77 (on Sale NOW from $128)
For those moms who love to hit the trail, a solid pair of winter hiking boots is a must. Which is why she’ll absolutely love these waterproof hikers from Palladium. Already an iconic hiking boot brand themselves, Palladium has collab’ed with the British gear brand Finisterre to create the Pallatrooper Hiker WP+. In addition to being a strong and sturdy hiking boot that ensures protection and comfort for heavy winter conditions, this Pallatrooper is made with organic canvas and nature-friendly microfiber. So mom can feel sure of both her footing and her carbon footprint.
Give your Mom a gift as unique as she is, with her very own astrological constellation charm from Satya Jewelry. Each medallion contains colored stones matching the prominent birthstone of each constellation, laid out in the unique pattern of the constellation themselves. Present these gold-plated beauties with one of Satya’s 18k necklaces so Mom can show off her celestial bling. And right now they’re only $49 each, which means you can include the rest of the family members too (Mom will be so proud that you remembered everyone’s birthdays).
Satya Jewelry, Zodiac Charm $49
Winter skin damage is no joke. Your Mom’s mature, dry skin needs more than just some tube of greasy, pore-clogging chemicals. This skin care set from Drunk Elephant is packed with 10 full-size skincare essentials, all ready to do battle for your mom against winter’s worst. It has everything she needs to cleanse, exfoliate, brighten, replenish, moisturize, and bring her skin back to its healthiest, happiest state. What it doesn’t have? That would be things like drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS, all of which can cause issues with skin. Oh, and it also comes in a cute mini-go bag from sustainable accessories brand, Baboon to the Moon.
For the mom who spins, a quality bike mat can make all the difference in working out where she has to, and where she’d like to. The Peloton bike mat is 72 x 36 inches long, giving plenty of room for placement, and 4mm thick (which really helps ensure her bike stays put). Made with high density material, now mom can place her bike wherever she likes in her house without fear of scuffs, damage from sweat, or uncertain stability (like on a carpeted surface). And if she does decide to place it over carpeting, it will actually help prolong the life of her bike by keeping those annoying carpet fibers out of the machinery.
What’s sweeter than something your mom can really call her own? Summersalt’s Cloud 9 pajama set may be the most comfortable pjs she’s ever owned. Crafted in recycled polyester (from recycled plastic water and soda bottles) this eco-friendly fabric feels like a favorite t-shirt. Cute enough to lounge around in during the waking hours, the pajama set can be monogrammed with your mother’s initials (up to 3 characters), making it her most comfy bespoke piece of clothing ever. Comes in several color options, but our fav is this dreamy teal with rose pink piping.
When there’s a nip in the air, nothing beats cashmere. This 100% Mongolian cashmere turtleneck sweater feels airy and light, but will keep her stylishly comfy and cozy all winter long.
What’s the fastest growing popular sport for people over 55? That would be Pickelball. With 4.8 million people now playing (almost double the number from just five years ago) this entertaining sport that’s a mash up of tennis, ping pong and badminton is a fantastic aerobic activity that improves flexibility, hand-eye coordination and it’s a great social activity. If your Mom has been bitten by the Pickle bug, or if she’s just looking for a new social activity to do with friends, get her started on the right foot with a proper pickleball shoe. The Pickleball Supreme from K-Swiss, as the name implies, was made for the pickleball player. This top performing model has Surge 7.0 for maximum energy return, new Durawrap flex upper for fit and protection, and the Dragguard 7.0 outsole for durability, so mom can crush the court.
K-Swiss, Pickleball Supreme $119.95
When Mom travels, she likes to be organized. This five piece packing cube set from CalPak will have her crushing that goal with ease. There are four mesh fabric cubes made of super durable polyester (one 17″, one 15″ and two 12″ cubes), as well as a water-resistant envelope pouch (13″). Comes in 14 color/pattern options, but we’re partial to this adorable daisy design.

Speaking of travel, sometimes the unexpected happens. Keys get left somewhere, wallets fall out while digging for phones, or maybe on your Mom’s trip that luggage that should have met her at the baggage claim has gone walkabout somewhere between Oregon and Ohio. This season, give Mom the peace of mind. For just about anything that she needs to keep track of, Tile can do it. This starter pack includes 2 Bluetooth enabled tracking devices – one perfect for attaching via a ring to keys, purses, wallets, luggage and another Slim fit that is as thin as a credit card and can be slipped into a wallet, or sticky attached to a laptop, or any other object. If something goes missing, Mom can locate it on her phone app (including that lost luggage via GPS). And if she loses her phone? She can double press the Tile button on her Tile to make her phone ring (even if it was set to Silent mode).
“I love cold feet”, said No Mom Ever. Slippers are a staple present that are always welcome. But just because they’re staple does not mean they have to be basic. Case in point, these snuggly Radeah Star slippers by Clarks are anything but! Crafted in soft tan suede and lined to the brim with super-soft shearling these fellows are straight up cush. Plus, their grippy rubber outsole ensures a comfortable and secure step every time.

There are cookies, and then there are cookies. Guess which these are? Milk Bar is a sweet (and occasionally savory) shop that’s been turning familiar treats upside down and on their heads, shaking up the dessert scene since 2008. Bon Appetit magazine called them “one of the most exciting bakeries in the country.” But you can literally just call them Milk Bar. Their flavorful treats are delish and sometimes unexpected (like their Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow cookie). They are also a powerhouse team of over 75% women in their company and support various organizations from Black Lives Matter to Cookies For Kid’s Cancer. What a sweet choice!
