A few weeks back, I decided to ask on my personal Facebook page what are the best Christmas gifts for moms.
I was expecting my honest and funny family and friends to be frank, and hilarious as always.
But something else happened.
Their answers surprised me a bit as it seems all moms want the same thing and the answers might surprise you.
One would think that a gift certificate to the spa, gift cards, and such, would be on this list, but it's not.
Moms don't want millions of dollars, expensive car, or dream house.
As I read the comments, I felt a pattern going on, and since I’m all about helping others, I wanted to write about the Best Christmas Gifts For Moms according to my family and friends on Facebook expressed they wanted.
Please keep in mind that hours of research and scientific data were collected for this post. 😉 This is a fun post and meant to be funny, and I want you to join in the fun.
This list below are some of the responses that I received from via Facebook, and quite honestly, it screams fun moms.
What I love about these gifts is that they are affordable; some of them are even FREE. So get ready to win her over with these best Christmas gifts for mom.
Best Christmas Gifts For Moms
Peace and quiet for one day
Some moms just want peace and quiet for one day and not calling mom for anything. Just a one day dedicated to silence.
Not do anything for one day
Some just want to relax and do nothing for one day. They don’t want to take you here and there. Moms don’t want to worry about appointments and phone calls and work. We just want one day dedicated to doing NADA!
Leave me alone for one day
A few mention that they just want to be let alone for one day! ONE DAY ALONE! And honestly, this around the holidays sounds like a winner to me.
Do the dishes
This mama wants her dishes done for a week. She is sick and tired of dishes and doesn’t want to deal with them for a week, maybe more!
Sleep for a day
I sure love this one. A few moms just want a whole night of sleep, 12 if possible. I have three little boys, and this will be perfect for me. PERFECT!
Put your clothes in the hamper!
Simply putting your dirty clothing in the basket for a week will be celebrated according to one mom in comments. That is all she wants, and she even called this a Christmas miracle!
Not do laundry for a week
I'm with you on that, and I don’t think of any mom who wouldn’t want this as a gift for Christmas!
This one made me laugh so hard, but I've so been there and can relate.
A bottle of wine
This gift might not be free, but it's well deserved. One mama just wanted a nice bottle of wine to enjoy for surviving another year.
