Finding a gift for mom should be easy, after all she did birth you! But sometimes it can be hard to push through the cliché barrage of gifts that normally serve as go-to’s for matriarchs during the holiday season: massages, candles, gift certificates for hugs. Let’s sideswipe the junk and get mom something she’ll actually use, shall we?
Oprah included a crossbody iPhone case bag on her list of favorite things for 2022, and we’re officially endorsing this idea as a perfect last-minute gift for moms this year. These cases are not only protective but convenient, putting your mom’s smartphone within reach all the time and keeping it safer from accidental drops and scuffs.
We’ve included a few options below, including Oprah’s favorite and a few dupe alternatives we love. We also included a splurge option, if your mom prefers something on the bougier side. Also, if you’re shopping for last-minute gifts, shop assured knowing each of the products below arrive in time for Christmas as of time of publishing.*
