Unique and Hip Holiday Gifts for Moms

No matter what interests mom, there's always a special gift that can cater to her one-of-a-kind character. Whether she likes to spend her free time reading, snapping family pictures or needs some spiffy accessories to spice up her workplace, we've got you covered. So if you're still waffling over the perfect pick for mother, cough up that rush shipping – and try one of these sure-fire finds!

Classic Titles eBook Covers

While eBooks are kind of the coolest thing since sliced bread (hundreds of novels at your fingertips? C'mon!), there's something a bit dissatisfying about reading a gadget with no cover or artwork. These super hip covers use classic novel artwork for stylish protection of your electronic book. Get a number of different classic titles on Out of Print Clothing. Each cover is $45.

Paper Plane Push Pins

Give mom some flair to her office space with these paper airplane pushpins. These nifty pins look like they've been flown right into the bulletin board and can even hold up everything from important memos to your latest family Christmas card. Get a set of six at See Jane Work for $6.

Wireless Phone/Tablet Photo Printer

Is mom a habitual iPhone picture snapper, with hundreds of photos on her phone and computer, but no photo album to show for it? Give her the gift of tangible memories with this smartphone photo printer. It wirelessly connects to your iOS or Android device and spits out high-quality 4-by-6 prints. Get one via Hammacher Schlemmer for $219.

iPad Wall Mount

For the food lover, an iPad is a great piece of technology. The Internet is an endless cache of recipes, and the portability of the iPad makes it a great thing to have around in the kitchen. But when mom's iPad is on the counter-top, it's just asking to be ruined by flour, oil and any other messy ingredient that may end up covering its screen and spoiling its electronics. With a wall mount, she won't have to worry about spills and the iPad will look keenly integrated with the kitchen space. Get one from Vogel's RingO for $50.

Collapsible Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Next time the family goes on a trip, whether on a plane or in the car, mom will thank you for this gift. Especially great for flight, these headphones will cancel out background noises (like roaring engines and noisy children). Those cheap, white earbuds don't even compare. These are collapsable, which makes them even more appealing for the mom on-the-go. Get a pair on Sonic Electronix for $32.

Vintage Typewriter Ring

Etsy shops have some pretty cool vintage jewelry, but how about a piece that's new but made from vintage parts? Etsy artist TheApple makes rings from old typewriter keys, perfect for the mom who's into writing or just digs cool old stuff. Email the storeowner via Etsy to see if they have the letter you're looking for; then get one for $15.

DIY Bath Salt Kit

Sometimes the coolest gifts require a bit of DIY effort. These make-your-own bath salts lets mom create her very own soothing aromatherapeutic concoctions – and, even better, channels her green thumb in the middle of winter. This kit comes with dried lavender buds, coarsely ground bath salts a wooden scoop and jar – plus a packet of lavender seeds and directions for the gardener gal. It's only about $12.99 on Gardener's Supply Company.
