Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Socks
Barefoot Dreams is all the rage when it comes to gifts—blankets, cardigans and more! But, the brand is a little on the pricier side, and you may not want to spend $150+ on your mom/MIL. The Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Socks give the luxurious vibe, while staying on budget.
Rose Quartz Roller + Gua Sha set
My boyfriend gifted me this exact set for my birthday and I use it daily. It’s THAT good. Rose quartz rollers (also known as Jade rollers!) are so good for the skin, especially when it comes to using serums. Both the roller and the gua sha are perfect for anti-aging!
Custom Starbucks Tumbler
Quarantine has brought on a whole new level of coffee, and your mom/MIL deserves their own customized Starbucks tumbler! Add on any phrase (“Best Mom” or “Best Mother in Law”) and choose a cute finish to match.
Who’s mom isn’t obsessed with candles? They’re the perfect gift when you’re a little unsure of what to get, and a candle set is even better. These Voluspa candles are luxurious without breaking the bank!
Give the gift of a monthly jewelry subscription! You can gift different types of memberships and the receiver gets to pick out their own high-end jewels. Such a win!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Winter brings a bout of dry and chapped lips, so help combat that with the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. So great for all moms/MILs and is sure to be a hit!
Another luxurious gift under budget, the Sephora perfume rollers are ah-mazing. Gift Gucci, Burberry, YSL and more for under $30!
Kendra Scott jewelry
Kendra Scott has such high-quality jewelry on a budget, and it’s hard to go wrong with a basic pair of gold hoop earrings or a necklace. This is a gift she’ll be wearing for the long run and will totally love.
Calling all the wine lovers! Yeti ramblers and tumblers are perfect for keeping a glass of wine (or coffee, for that matter) ice-cold. So many cute colors (like Tiffany blue or ice pink!) and many different sizes too.
Give the gift of personalization! If you went on a recent trip or just want to commemorate the 2020 pandemic (lol), then a customized Shutterfly book would be perfect!
Slippers are a perfect gift, especially for keeping warm in winter! These plush Amazon slippers have over 1,000 5-star reviews, and are perfect for staying under budget!
More coffee please! Whether she’s whipping up Dalgonia-style coffee or a plain cup o’ Joe, she needs a cute monogrammed mug!
Magnolia Table Volume 2
Give me allllll the Joanna Gaines books please! The first Magnolia Table recipe book was spectacular, and she only gives us more delicious recipes. This is perfect for quarantine cooking, too!
Ugg Fleece Lined Crew Sock
More warmth! Ugg items are so cozy and comfy, so these cute pom pom socks would make the cutest gift!
Threshold Chunky Knit Throw Blanket
She can always use another blanket, no matter what! Snag this adorable chunky knit throw at a reasonable price, plus it comes in two other cute colors!
Allsaints Cuffed Knit Gloves
These Allsaints Cuffed Knit Gloves are so cute, but also practical! And, in a state like Minnesota, you can never have too many pairs of gloves!
Ugg Boucle Knit Beanie
More Ugg!! This beanie is seriously cute, and provides serious warmth too. Would pair so cute with the Allsaints gloves!
