Moms should get nothing but the best gifts during the holidays, which means thoughtful, interesting items that show her the gratitude she deserves. But sometimes the pressure to get your mom a meaningful, useful gift can result in worrying and procrastination (which never leads to smart gift-buying). To help make the search a little less daunting we rounded up these ten gifts moms will love.

1. Estilo Bamboo Tea Storage Box

A sleek tea box allows for easier storage and selection of tea, and eliminates the ugly mess of tea boxes that some people have to live with. We recommend this one by Estilo because it has a simple design, elegant bamboo construction and very good reviews.

2. Sorbus Bamboo Countertop Wine Rack

If your mom is a wine connoisseur, entertainer, chef, or any combination of the three, she’ll love this bamboo countertop wine rack. We think a countertop wine rack makes a better gift than a real wine rack, as it’s less of a commitment and fits in almost anybody’s kitchen.

3. WELL-STRONG Jewelry Tower

This jewelry tower does double duty as a chic decoration and a useful way to store earrings, necklaces and bracelets. It’s relatively small for tight closets or bathrooms, and makes a great gift for less than $15.

4. Prepara iPrep Device Stand

Many home chefs still use physical cookbooks and forgo the usefulness of online recipes because it’s difficult to use a device while cooking. iPrep fixes this problem with an adjustable stand, integrated stylus and a non-slip rubber grip. If your mom’s a cook, she’ll absolutely love it.

5. Loritta Women’s Winter Socks

Cozy winter socks are a classic gift for moms. These vintage-inspired winter socks are made of a wool blend that provide serious warmth, moisture wicking capabilities and breathability that’s hard to come by.

6. RSVP Marble Wine Cooler

A stylish marble wine cooler like this can be used as a rosé-chiller in the summer and a flower or utensil holder in the winter. It looks elegant in any kitchen, and doesn’t cost much at less than $25.

7. HemingWeigh Himalayan Salt Tile

Himalayan salt tiles have become a must-have for food connoisseurs and decorators alike. They can be heated up and used to sear meats, veggies and other fast-cooking foods, or chilled to serve sushi, appetizers and desserts with fresh flavor and a unique look.

8. Pendleton National Park Scarf

Scarves are another bulletproof holiday gift for mom. We recommend this one from Pendleton because it’s unique, stylish and well-priced at under $30.

9. ArtNaturals Scented Candle Set

ArtNaturals’ aromatherapy candle set features six uniquely scented candles that create a mood-enhancing atmosphere in any room. They’re also made with soy wax for a cleaner, longer burn than traditional paraffin candles.

10. Thierry Mugler Angel Body Lotion

This premium body lotion from Thierry Mugler has a high-end fragrance that makes it worth the price. Vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli are accompanied by fruity notes that make it a special gift for mom.
