Unfortunately for moms everywhere, it’s somehow already mid-November, which means the struggle to make this ~the most magical season ever~ is officially upon us. We’re talking entertaining the in-laws, hosting endless dinners, and somehow keeping it together long enough to find a special gift for every person you’ve ever met. Ready for the kicker? We spend alllllll this time, energy, and money making everyone happy and, uh. What? About? Us? We deserve a lil something under the tree, too, right? RIGHT?!

The problem is that when people think “best gift for moms,” it’s usually just toys for their kids or a generic candle…if we moms get anything at all. Because let’s face it: while everyone’s dishing out gifts for the kids, presents for the pets, even something for the neighbor’s third cousin twice removed, who remembers the actual people behind the sticky handprints on the walls and the seemingly endless piles of cookies that everyone sneaks from the freezer even though we told them they’re for the party we’re forced to throw so now we have to make more in the middle of the night while we cry into the abyss. 

But fear not, because gifts for moms — like good gifts for cool moms — actually *do* exist. Since none of us have time to make a whole list for ourselves, I polled the Betches Moms masses and figured out what, exactly, everyone wants for the holidays (…besides to be left TF alone, ofc). If you’re not booking us a suite where we can order room service and sit in silence, we’ll accept any and all of the below. (Oh, and if you’re a mom, you might as well buy yourself a few pressies. Trust us, you deserve it.)
