Last minute gift guide: items your mom will love for YEARS

This final roundup before Mother’s Day is a guide to anyone who you feel stuck on when you’re shopping. These are ALL things I know almost any mom would love not just for a few weeks or months, but she’ll be able to use and love for YEARS. 

I found all of these gifts that your mom will love forever at JC Penney, where they carry brands that have been tested and tried for decades!! I love being able to run into one store and find so many gift options.

Cuisinart SmartStick Immersion Hand BlenderThis blender is the soup master ninja extraordinaire! It’s super low mess and makes your soups creamy and perfect. It’s such a good way to sneak vegetables into soup so your kids will gobble it up! You can also use it for pasta sauces, whipped cream, pesto, homemade salad dressings, a quick blend of a protein shake … I pull mine out ALL the time and I know your mom will too!

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker – Since Mother’s Day is in May, it feels like the perfect time to gift fun summer extras. I love making ice cream at home and coming up with fun new combinations of flavors. It makes for such a fun family night! I’ve had this ice cream maker for many years and it’s SUPER easy to use – you just freeze the bowl ahead of time and then when you’re ready to make your ice cream just pour the ingredients in and push one button!

Kitchenaid glass bowl – if your mom already has a Kitchenaid stand mixer like I do and my mom does and so many other moms, this is a GREAT gift because any mom who loves to cook has rewashed her bowl for the kitchenaid a million times when making a big feast! I’m always envious of my mom’s extra bowl for her kitchenaid stand mixer. You might have to sneak into her kitchen to see what model of kitchenaid she has to be sure the bowl is the right fit but once you know this really is a gift she will love for years to come.

Cuisinart Food Processor – This is another unexpected kitchen tool that I pull out all the time. It makes recipe prep so easy, and once I had one, I started noticing how many recipes suggest using it! It has slicing and shredding dics and a chopping/mixing blade, so it’s up for truly any task.

CHI Ceramic Flat Iron – the classic of all classic flat irons. I’ve used my CHI straightener for years without fail! The ceramic plates leave your hair silky and shiny without drying it out, which is always a win with heat styling. If your mom has shorter hair this is the perfect gift!

Long-Sleeve Knit Ruffle Robe – Having a sweet and feminine robe totally elevates your morning routine, and this one is not only SUPER cute but really affordable! The perfect thing to throw in with any of these other bigger ticket mother’s day gifts! It comes in baby pink, baby blue or black.

Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron – This is another hair tool that I think everyone should have. A 1″ iron is so good for those loose waves that look good on every kind of hair from a bob to longer lengths! I also really like the heat settings on this one so you can control temperature. If your mom has been using the same curling iron since 1989, this is what she needs for Mother’s Day!!

Schwinn Cruiser – Okay, do bicycles get any cuter than a daisy yellow cruiser?! I’m picturing a basket on the front filled with flowers, it’s just so picturesque. A bike ride around the neighborhood is such a good activity to do either alone or with the family, which I think makes this such a sweet gift for a mom (and if you gift this to someone, promise me you’ll put a big bow on the front, because that would just be too cute to handle!).

The Wet Brush – This is one of those items that would technically be for mom, but anyone else in the family with long hair will end up using it because it just works so well! It combs through tangles without damaging hair, and you can even use it on extensions. It’s one of the few brushes that doesn’t feel like it’s damaging when you use it on wet hair.
