Reader Gift Guide: What Are You Getting Your Mom This Holiday Season?


It’s November 25 — exactly one month until Christmas, exactly one month to watch Elf on repeat — and even if you think the gift-giving season shouldn’t officially start until the turkey dinner has been reduced to leftovers, it’s already happening. Black Friday and Cyber Monday — why even wait for those? Everyone’s got pre-Black Friday sales (next year, pre-pre?), the stores are getting crowded, and there’s chaos in the parking lots.

Every year at Jezebel we do our own special, kooky series of gift guides, and this year will be no exception. But you guys are probably already putting together your shopping lists or making purchases, so this week we’ll focus on what you, the readers, are giving this season. Ideas aplenty! First up, gifts for mom.

This is going to work just like our Fall Fashion Shopping List. The rules:

1. Please don’t leave regular/direct comments on this post. Shopping submissions only! You can, however, comment on the submissions.

2. Items should be available online. We want to buy the cool trinket you found! Give us the link!

3. Avoid duplicates. If someone posts the thing you were absolutely planning on buying too, please avoid making a second entry for it. Instead, just chime in beneath their comment.

4. Follow this format for your entries:


Description of item, price, link to/name of retailer.

Additional notes.

For example:

Luxury Plush Foot Duvets, on sale for $19 at Restoration Hardware.

My mother always has cold feet, even if it’s 80 degrees out. So you can only imagine how her feet feel during a Michigan winter. I’ve tried these on before and can confirm that wearing them around the house is like walking on warm, comfy clouds.

Okay, your turn!
