What to Get Mom for Christmas

Mom is the most important person on your Christmas list, but chances are there’s a question mark next to her name. She’s so hard to shop for! Old World Christmas has come to the rescue with our top ideas of the best gifts for your mom this Christmas. 

Food for Nourishment

An experienced chef and a kitchen novice both appreciate the right tricks and tools of the trade. If your mom enjoys cooking many local kitchen shops and sometimes high-end grocery stores, offer cooking and baking classes. The classes are usually a one-evening commitment, and have many options to choose from. Your mom might have already taken these classes and improved her culinary skills so now needs an upgrade with her baking pans, cookware or serving pieces. If she’s already skilled, maybe get a few tools in a new skill or craft she hasn’t tried yet: Sous Vide, pastry or cocktails might spark a fun new hobby. She might have a hefty collection of aprons, but you could be the first to get her a chef’s jacket. A number of kitchen-themed ornaments would represent mom well: the classic measuring cup ornament, the chef's jacket or chef's hat.

Fitness for Life

Everyone is active these days. It ensures optimal health, movement and longevity. Whether your mom is a CrossFit addict or a silver sneaker, there are a few fitness items that she might love. She probably already has the basics, but a new pair of leggings, a top or new socks might help her feel free to dump the grimy items she keeps wearing. A great hiking or trail guide from your local bookstore, highlighting trips and trails nearby, would give some guidance and places to look forward to going. Maybe getting the gear for a new sport and paying for a month of lessons would be an exciting gift. Has she ever participated in a masters swimming program? Golf lessons? Ski club? Ju Jitsu? A new activity, and the gear to get her started, would be an exciting start to the new year and a fun way to get out of a fitness rut. A couple of fitness-themed ornaments to match an active lifestyle would be: a pair of running shoes, a dumbell or a triathlon medal

Gardening for Beauty

Depending on climate and location gardening habits are so varied and versatile. She might be a master gardener who can grow something from nothing and weeds wouldn’t dare show their roots in her soil, but there are always new gadgets, tools and footwear to make the job easier. Check in with your local farm-supply company or nursery and ask the knowledgeable employees for some ideas perfect for your mom’s specific climate and region. If she’s never had an herb or vegetable garden, maybe a small starter kit could give her something to learn and research before the spring hits. If she loves gardening, but doesn’t have the space, research local pea patches to see if you could rent her a spot for the spring and summer. For the gardener we love the garden pruning ornament, gardening gloves ornament and all the myriad of flower ornaments we feature.

Subscription for Something New

Subscription boxes are all the rage, and for good reason. They’re convenient, exciting, the gift that keeps on giving, and they’re the perfect way to try something new each month or quarter. They come in all shapes and sizes, but a subscription to one for the year or even quarterly would definitely be a big hit. Cause Box is ethically conscious subscription box with a great mix of beauty, health and kitchen items. There are annual or quarterly subscriptions. Fabfitfun is another popular subscription box that consists of beauty items—tools, accessories, skin care and hair care each month. Another subscription perfect for a busy and health-conscious mom is Daily Harvest. It’s customizable, and provides meals and snacks that are easy to make and deliciously nutritious. The lipstick, the blow dryer and the yoga mat are fun ornaments to go with the subscription!

Mom is worth a great Christmas gift. Now is the perfect time to start planning and saving to spoil your mom on Christmas. She will be so touched with a well-thought out gift, and she’ll appreciate something nice. Of course, we also think that ornaments make great gifts, so be sure to include one of our gorgeous blown-glass Christmas ornaments to top off her gift.

Harvest Time! Make Your Own Fruit and Veggie Tree

Harvest Time! Make Your Own Fruit and Veggie Tree

Autumn is officially here. It is a time of cool mornings, sunny and warm afternoons, sweaters and homemade soups. Gardens are overflowing with pumpkins, tomatoes, potatoes and greens. This year we think a harvest tree preceding the Christmas tree filled with fruit and veggie ornaments would be seasonal, and a beautiful fall decoration.

A Ginger Cottages Christmas Adventure

A Ginger Cottages Christmas Adventure

Visions of sugar plums danced in my head as I nestled back into my cozy seat, and in a flash the train was off. Reflecting on my trip while munching on the second pretzel I was amazed with my unexpected trip wondering how I’d describe my trip. If only I had a memento. I carefully unwrapped my early Christmas present from the hands of the man himself to discover delightful replicas of each place I visited. Knowing I’d set it up each Christmas, as a magical visual of an incredible trip, I was thankful for the story to go with it.
