Holiday Gift Guide – for Mom or Mother-in-Law under $100

Does anybody else out there really enjoy wrapping presents? I love turning on Christmas music and setting up my wrapping station in the floor next to the tree with the lights on!

But in order to wrap, first you have to have presents! Today’s gift guide is a collection of gifts for your mom or mother-in-law, and everything is under $100.

Wood Marble Wine Cooler

If your mom or mother-in-law is a wine drinker, this is a really beautiful, under $50 option that’s decorative and functional. I’m planning on gifting this to my MIL with a bottle of Chardonnay in it. It can also be used as a flower vase when she’s not keeping her wine cold!

Ember Mug

This is at the very top of our budget on this post, but my mom has one and saying she loves it is an understatement. Every time I go home, she raves about how much she loves it. An Ember Mug is a smart mug that’s temperature controlled, so you never have to worry about chugging cold coffee if you get distracted while drinking it! It’s totally worth the splurge!

Meditation/Tea Gift Set

If your mom and/or MIL is more of a tea drinker, this tea gift set would be a special touch for the holidays. It comes with a cream and blue mug, ten tea-infuser pouches, notecards with one hundred meditations, and a mini stone pack.

Dreamy Cotton Pajama Set

I don’t know of anyone who complains about getting a cozy pajama set, especially since a lot of us have spent this year in athleisure and loungewear. This set comes in navy, pink, and gray, and for $10 more, you can get it monogrammed to make it even more special.

Faux Fur Slippers

Again, you can never have too many cozy pieces, and these faux fur slippers are really on-trend this year. They come in four different colors: light blush/leopard, cherry, light gray, and multi. *with code CYBER, you can get these for ONLY $15 with free shipping until Dec. 2*

Sherpa-Lined Cozy Cardigan

This cardigan is going fast and is only available in one color. I don’t think I’d ever take this off if I owned it – it looks so perfect for curling up on the sofa in front of a fire…

Knotted Crossbody Bag

I think this crossbody is such a beauty, and I’m sure your mom, mother-in-law, sister, best friend, aunt, niece, etc., would be so excited to open this up for the holidays! It comes in a beautiful twig, black, and cinnabar (I’ll take that one if you’re buying!).

Engravable Bar Bracelet

A bar bracelet is the perfect option if you want something a bit more personalized. You can customize the bracelet’s base (14k gold paperclip chain, or clear/sapphire/emerald/garnet cupchain), add a name or initials, and select your font.

Long Pendant Necklace

And one more accessory! This is another item that I’d really like for myself. There are eight different options for the stone in the necklace – the picture below is the Gray Illusion, but I’m also a big fan of the turquoise and lilac magnesite!

Now it’s time for shopping! If you had to choose one item from this list, what would you most want to unwrap for the holidays? Let me know if in the comments, and happy shopping!
