The Willow Holiday Gift Guide for The Moms You Love


As you start creating your holiday gift list for 2021 (even though it feels like you just rang in the 2020 holiday season), we’re betting that some of the most deserving people on your list rock the title of “mom.” That’s right—it’s been another tough year, especially for moms, as they’ve had to cope with the unforeseeable difficulties that come along with parenting amidst a global pandemic (some for the second year in a row!).


The good news is that things are certainly starting to look up, with Dr. Fauci even announcing that fully vaccinated individuals should feel comfortable enjoying the holidays with friends and family this year—a vastly different message than we heard last year at this time. If that means anything to you, you’re probably over-the-moon excited to have a shot at a real holiday celebration, which means actual, in-person gifting where you get to see the excited look on the mom in your life’s face when you drop one of the most her gifts on her and totally make her day, week, month and year.


One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the moms in your life the gifts they actually want is to consider items that best fit their personality—or life situation. For example, the mom who’s obsessed with her Peloton and calls it her saving grace is probably going to appreciate something exercise-related a tad bit more than the mom who just wants to sit and have a cup of coffee in peace in quiet (which is basically all of us).


To give you some holiday gifting inspo, we’re sharing some of the top-contending gift ideas for every mom in your life.


The Multitasker


Willow® Wearable Breast Pump

$499.99 at Willow

If you’re a nursing mom, you know what it feels like to be chained down to a seat for half-hours at a time, or potentially even plugged into an outlet! Not only can this be frustrating, but it can also make you feel like you’re wasting precious time that you could either be spending with your baby, friends or family or crossing important things off your to-do list. Enter: The Willow® Wearable Breast Pump, the very first all-in-one, in-bra breast pump that lets you carry on with your regular life all while collecting precious milk for you to store. In addition to giving you your freedom back, it provides 360-degree mobility so you can move around as freely as you like and not have to worry about spilling!


Olaplex Bond Maintenance System Kit

$84 at Olaplex

One thing most new moms can agree on is that postpartum hair sucks. Not only is it falling out in all the wrong places, but it also tends to be more dry and brittle than that shiny, glossy pregnancy hair you rocked for nine months. The good news is that there is one product on the market that can seriously help—and that’s Olaplex. Their products actually work to repair the bonds of your hair like no other product you’ve tried before (seriously—it’s amazing). The best part is that you can leave their No. 3 in for as long as you want so that it sits in and does its job while you tackle your to-do list.


The Minimalist


Calmbox

$29.99/month at The Calm Box

If you’re a mom who couldn’t use a bit more calm in her life, then good for you—you’re certainly an anomaly. Every mom deserves relaxation, it’s just that most of us are short on ways to get it. That’s what makes this gift idea so genius. Calmbox is a subscription service that delivers 6-8 handpicked items to help the mom in your life find some peace in her hectic day-to-day. Items include things like meditation guides, tea, bath balms and soothing creams.


Tiny Tags

$125 at Tiny Tags

Is there anything a new mom appreciates more than a gift that commemorates her sweet baby? Tiny Tags does just that with its nameplate necklace that you can have inscripted with the name of the mom’s baby. It is available in 14k yellow, rose or white gold and is made entirely out of vermeil. The chain length is 16” and includes the length of the nameplate.


The Peloton Junkie


Primal “Envia” Spin Shorts

$60 at Primal Wear

These innovative fitness shorts are a perfect gift for the Peloton-loving mom with a biking habit that means business. Designed specifically for indoor spinning, these shorts combine the comfort of a cycling short with a sleek style that’s even comfortable for all-day wear. Moms will appreciate the sleek, discreet and totally hidden padding that cushions the spin bike without giving that “bumpy butt” look of most padded cycling shorts.


Octomoves

$80 at Octomoves

Moms who love a good workout, will appreciate this multitasking accessory that helps you score a high-intensity workout in as little as 5 minutes using a simple, weighted rope. Modeled after the ancient martial arts practice known as “Rope Flow,” which uses a chain whip or meteor hammer to boost both physical and mental endurance, this little device is gaining wide notoriety for its ease of use and impressive results. They sell various different types of ropes based on your personal fitness goals.


TIEM Cycling Shoe

$130 at TIEM

Every Peloton-loving mom is going to need a high-quality pair of cycling shoes. TIEM creates top-notch pairs that are performance-oriented without sacrificing on style or comfort. The shoe itself has a breathable, mesh toe box as well as a slip-on construction so they fit easily into a mom’s hectic life, providing nothing but comfort and support. The SPD cleats are sold separately, but you can throw those in there too to truly make the mom in your life’s day.
