2017 Holiday Gift Guide For That Special Mom in Your Life

You’re a mom. You have a mom. You know a mom. Moms are everywhere and we all seem to have that certain special mom who makes our lives more amazing. This Holiday Season celebrate that special mom in your life with the perfect gift! To help you pick the best gifts this season, I came up with an amazing holiday momma gift guide. It was inspired by the funniest movie of the year (IMO) Bad Moms Christmas and it I’m sure it will have something to please the pickiest of moms.

I think that I find the Bad Moms movies are so funny because they are so relatable. Who hasn’t felt mom guilt, or wanted to just have fun and cut out the worrying over the holidays? We are all juggling family members, kids, money, jobs and relationships while trying to look good and do our thang.

What better way to spoil the Bad Mom near you than to give them a gift to enhance their own personal beauty? Give them something that will help them feel good inside and look damn good outside. Even something as small as a new scented lotion can uplift your mama’s soul in no time.

But what beauty related gifts should you buy for that mom in your life? Every mom loves a bit of a pamper. A tinted balm, a delicious smelling new shampoo and conditioner, nail polish and alike. The sky is the limit when it comes to finding fun gifts and stocking stuffers for the holiday season.

To help you navigate the crazy world of gift giving, I’ve created this guide to help you pick the perfect guide for your own Bad Moms.

All you need to know is which Bad Mom you buying for. The main characters in the Bad Moms series each have their own style and flair. Whether smooth and sleek, demure and classy or even bold and glam… this list has something for every Bad Mom beauty enthusiast.

AMY – played by Mila Kunis. Amy’s style is sleek and simple. This type of Bad Mom is not flashy or gaudy but will always look put together. She seems to have an effortless beauty and likes the natural look. How does she do it?

Hair – Somehow Amy manages to rock crisp sleek hair among all her craziness. Do you know a mama like Amy? She doesn’t want too much fuss, doesn’t like too much product but loves to look smooth and supple? Give your mom the gift of sexy, smooth hair.

I recommend Maui Moisture Nourish & Moisture + Coconut Milk Collection (Shampoo, Conditioner & Weightless Oil Mist). This is a super nourishing hair care collection that you’ll see effects from after the first shower. It has ingredients like Coconut Milk, Guava

Oil and Mango Butter that make your hair glow radiantly. With the Weightless Oil Mist, you can spray a bit in your hands and spread throughout your damp hair to leave it sleek and shiny by the time it dries.

To smooth out my hair I used the LeAngelique Titanium Straigtener. It glides through the hair and has it looking straight and shiny in minutes. To buy that special mom in your life ( or yourself ) a new straightener click this link : Titan Straightener 

Makeup – Her look is Sleek and Sassy. She always looks put together and effortless. This Mom shops at Aritzia, Anthropologie and Nordstrom.

KIKI – played by Kristen Bell. Kiki is a bit of a preppy mom. She has a style that is pretty straight-laced and a little on the ‘square’ side. Comfortably conservative, classically tailored and majorly modest. I love playing with traditional styles and I can’t seem to get enough of Kiki’s cute and classic vibe. Moms like Kiki Shop at J Crew and Banana Republic.

Hair – Kiki is able to maintain her beautiful blonde color and that adorable bob despite being over-burdened and under-appreciated. Her hair looks like she just had a session with her stylist, not a playdate with the hellion twins from down the street. How does she do it?!

To help your Bad Mom maintain that beautifully blond look, I recommend OGX Hydrate & Color Reviving + Lavender Luminescent Platinum Shampoo and Conditioner. These products target platinum blonde hues by using lavender oil and chamomile to conquer lack-luster hair, faded color and brassiness. This is a must-have for the blond bombshell of a mom on your Christmas list.

Hair – Carla has a mane of thick, luxurious hair that she keeps looking on-point even with the kids (and her own mother) running around. How does she do it?!

For your bold Bad Moms I recommend the OGX Frizz-Defy/Moisture + Shea Soft & Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. These are an entirely silicone-free and sulfate-free hair care line to moisturize and de-frizz dry, thick hair. It treats coarse tresses with shea butter, agave nectar and coconut oil to build hair that looks healthy with a silky, shiny glow.
