Cozy Blanket Scarf

Holy awesomesauce Batman. I have this myself and adore it! The very practical Mom in me loves how versatile this blanket scarf is.

I use it when I’m jumping on an airplane to go someplace. I grab it when I head to the movies (because the theater is forever cold). I take it with me when I’m headed out to my kid’s practices.

Plus, its a super cute scarf you can throw on with a shirt and pair of jeans and get going. The possibilities are endless!

Soft Winter Socks

I love soft socks with my whole heart. Just because socks are a practical gift, doesn’t mean they have to be plain or unattractive.

These super cute winter socks are made of all the win.

Give your mom the gift of toasty toes. She will thank you. No one like cold feet. No one.

RFID Women’s Wallet

RFID women’s wallet. One of the best wallets for busy moms because it’s where function meets fashion. This wallet protects your private information (credit cards, debit cards, etc.) from unknown scans and is large enough to hold everything you need in your wallet.

Plus, not only does this wallet deliver on safety, it’s super cute and comes in a variety of colors.


You know what the best thing in the world is? Having the ability to read whatever I want whenever I want.

As an avid reader (never stop learning ya’ll!) I love keeping my Kindle in my person so I can sneak in 10-15 minutes of reading when I’m in car pick up or at the line in the grocery store. It’s like a mini-Mom break wherever I go.

Plus, I can download cookbooks to it and look through and meal plan while I’m on the go!

Kindle Unlimited

If you are going to buy the busy mom in your life a Kindle, consider going a step further and give the gift of Kindle Unlimited.

I ask for this every Christmas from my family. Spending a few dollars a month for a subscription that gives you access to over a million titles is one of the best frugal options for avid book reader.
