Welcome to Metropolitan Mama’s Christmas Gift Guide for Moms. Below you will find clothes, shoes, decor, and accessories that moms are bound to love for Christmas 2019.
I have long been captivated by Susan Lordi's stunningly gorgeous art pieces. Purposefully faceless, the evocative pieces convey so much emotion - especially tied to family relationships. It is easy to envision yourself and your loved ones in the poses and concepts behind each piece.
For holiday 2019, I am delighted to feature "By My Side" - a tender and powerful piece that shows the unbreakable bonds between women. This is exactly the right gift for any woman who has three daughters, is one of three sisters, or is one of a tight trio of girlfriends.
The days of old-fashioned, gigantic, ugly diaper bags are behind us! You can now buy exquisite, fashionable, and intelligently designed bags that are a pleasure to use, wear, and carry. Itzy Ritzy's Mini Backpack is a great gift idea for any new mom! Even if she already has a bag, she'll be grateful for this new one, which has eight pockets and a matching changing pad! Adorable! In fact, this bag is so stylish that if you have both a baby and a teenager, your teenager will want to borrow it!
You can also purchase corresponding packing cubes. We love the simple elegance of the Pack Like A Boss Packing Cubes in Blush Floral.
Have you discovered period underwear yet? They have been a serious game-changer for both me and my teenage daughter. No more bulky pads! Hooray! Period underwear are specially designed to capture blood without any wetness, mess, or stains...and they really work! It's almost magic.
Viita Protection's Cycle Set is a great gift pick in this category because it features 6 pairs to cover your whole cycle - three for lighter days, two for moderate days, and one for a heavy day. Don't worry! These don't look like granny panties. They're actually quite flattering and feel very similar to regular underwear - but with a more "swimsuit-ish" material. Try them. Gift them. Ask for the set for Christmas.
You can choose between briefs or hipsters, either nude or black or a combo.
What do moms want in shoes? As a mom of four, I'll tell you. We want style, comfort, low heels, and no shoelaces. That's my wish list anyway.
Muck Boot Company's new Liberty Chelsea boot fits this description with stacked 1.25" heels, elastic gore for easy on/off, and a comfortable footbed. These short boots can be paired with jeans, pants, or skirts. Plus, - as you can expect from all footwear by The Muck Boot Company - they're 100% muckproof! This means that you'll be "fully protected from wet, windy, snowy, muddy, and sticky situations."
Moms have to carry ALL THE PAPERWORK (am I right?). She might as well tote it around in style inside C.R. Gibson's Leatherette Document Folio. This sophisticated midnight black paper holder features a pearl bow closure and a playful scalloped edge.
