Top 10 Gifts Moms Want for Christmas

christmas gift ideas for mom

As mothers, all of the holiday focus is, of course, on the kids. But don't we deserve some holiday goodness, too? Of course we do!!!

I asked my mommy friends what they were hoping for this holiday season and most of them had the same ideas: Sleep and using the bathroom alone topped the list. But you can't buy those. (Or, if you can, please tell me where!)

Below were the most popular realistic mom-requested gifts this season. If you're looking to spread some Christmas cheer to a mom you know, take a look. I don't know a single mom who wouldn't appreciate any of them, myself included ...

1. A night or two in a hotel room. Alone. No husband, no kids, nobody but me.

2. A massage. From someone other than a child of mine paid a dollar to do it.

3. A new camera to torture my children with.

4. A Keurig. Isn't that a Mommy necessity or something?

5. Some new bras that I don't need to physically stuff my boobs into.

6. A bottle of wine, the size of my Christmas tree.

7. An iPad. For me, me, and only me! NO, I WILL NOT SHARE, CHILDREN!

8. Jewelry. The more sparkles, the better.

9. Babysitting services so I can nap, shower alone, or actually, you know ... get clean.

10. A vibrator. And then a lock for the door.

I like the idea of someone to watch the children while I get a bath. :)

My husband and I wrote out Christmas lists for each other... And at the very top of my list was a hotel room for a night alone! Glad I'm not alone, makes me feel better lol
