5 Christmas Present Ideas for the Mother Figures In Your Life

Whether you’re getting a head start or scrambling for some last-minute shopping, it’s never too early (or late!) to start seeking out the best Christmas presents for Mom. Of course, the greatest gifts are personal, and have a way of both expressing your gift-giving style and being something she’ll love. To help you get creative this season, the experts at Voda Swim have put together a quick guide to some of the top holiday gifts for Mom, including some unexpected favorites she’s sure to enjoy.

1. A Self-Care Package 

Sometimes, showing your mother (or mother figure) how much you care is all about helping her care for herself. Bundle a few luxe items like lotions, scents, or even specialty teas to create one of the best Christmas presents for Mom, or choose a pre-curated collection of self-care items to help her feel extra-special.

2. A Bathing Suit

While it may seem like an unconventional choice, a swimsuit can actually be an amazingly thoughtful holiday gift for Mom. As we all know, mothers don’t always put themselves first physically or emotionally. A flattering one-piece or two-piece swimsuit can help boost confidence and flatter a figure, making it one of the best Christmas presents for Mom. For new moms, swimwear with an extra bit of tummy coverage can be a great choice. The added support and shaping of a high-quality D/DD top can provide an instant confidence elevation as well.

3. A Cover-Up

Going hand-in-hand with the swimwear gift-giving idea, a cover-up can be a great option for those who’d prefer not to guess at sizes. Many cover-up scarves and dresses are one-size-fits-all, making them ideal holiday gifts for Mom, and in addition to being beautiful, they’ll put her in mind of a new adventure or getaway.

4. A Custom Experience 

One of the best Christmas presents for Mom is to give her an experience she’ll never forget. Whether it’s a trip to the opera, a picnic on the beach, or a surprise spa day, this holiday gift for Mom can be tailored to reflect her personal inclinations, or to treat her to something she’s always wanted to try.

5. A Gift Card 

For those who aren’t quite sure what to give, gift cards to specific shops or retailers make some of the best Christmas presents for Mom. They’re a more personal holiday gift for Mom than giving cash or generic gift cards, and will encourage your mother or mother figure to spend in an area she might not otherwise consider. A specialty restaurant, hotel, or spa can be a lovely choice—and of course, Voda Swim also offers custom gift cards to make sure your gift recipient gets exactly what she wants.
