What do you give as gifts for mom who has everything? I bet she doesn’t have these cool items! Read on to find the perfect gifts for mom who don’t want anything — they’ll love any of these. Subscribe now for more fun to your inbox!
So, you ask your mom what she wants for Christmas and she says “nothing”. A typical story!
She may say she doesn’t need or want something, but it’s probably because she wants you to spend your money on something you need or want; furthermore, she probably just can’t think of a gift she could use.
That’s where I come in!
I put together this list: the ultimate gift guide for moms who want nothing. Whether she likes to cook, likes luxury, wants to get cozy this winter, just had a baby, wears jewelry, likes to travel, loves new skin care products, wants cool home decor, or simply doesn’t want anything, there’s something in this guide for her.
And if your mom could use lots of things, you’ll still find a surprise item in this list she may not have thought of yet: and those unique gifts are some of the best kind!
If your mom says she needs nothing for Christmas, but you still want to give her a gift, present her with something on this list. It will prove you still can discover something she wants, needs, and can use. And you’ll also be her favorite child! I kid, I kid. :) Enjoy!
Gifts for Mom Who Doesn’t Want Anything

This is a good gift for someone who needs nothing. If they like to cook or bake — or they don’t, and use it as a display item — they’ll love it.
