Gift Guide for the Modern Mom

Mom: She has the hardest job in the world, works 24 hours a day, and is always on-call. With all that she does for others, it’s time to help her enjoy some time to herself. Here are some of our favorite picks for the busy modern mom this holiday season.

1. Naughty/Nice iPad Folio

This cheeky-chic iPad case from Kate Spade with its demure, yet devilish, damsel will make mom smile each time she cracks it open. Let the gold foil “Do Not Disturb” message remind all you kids, young and old, that she needs a little break to daydream before she’s on to the next task.

2. Happy Plugs Earbuds

Silence is golden. Or, at the very least, tuning out the noisy kids (and pestering spouses) can be! These elegant earbuds have superb sound quality and are equipped with a microphone and toggle switch to handle phone calls and adjust volume. And we bet mom won’t be able to resist their gold sheen.

3. GLAMSQUAD Gift Card

Let’s be honest. When do moms really ever have time to primp? Instead of sending her to the salon, give her the gift of glamour with GLAMSQUAD! She can book an appointment with the smart phone app, and their professional team of hairstylists, makeup artists (and coming soon, manicurists!) will come to her! Now mom can look like a million bucks without ever having to drive to leave the living room.

4. Spotted Fold-Over Clutch Bag

When mom finally takes a night off, the last thing she’ll want to tote is her oversized stocked-with-everything-imaginable mom purse. Lighten her load with this chic fold-over clutch by Clare Vivier. It will hold her evening essentials and look hot in her hand. The black and white print goes with nearly every ensemble, the gold zipper and iconic CV pull tab add just the right amount of glam.

5. Mason Pearson Hairbrush

If you’ve ever tried a Mason Pearson on your mane, you already know how fabulous it feels. These English brushes have been handmade since 1885, and are truly a treat for the tresses with their excellent detangling ability and stimulating scalp massage. Even if mom is pressed for time in the morning, brushing her hair with a Mason Pearson make her feel glamorous… until the moment she rushes out the door.
