Gift Guide for Mom - 3 Top Gift Ideas and Stores for Women: Gifts for Mother's Day and More

What are Gifts that Women Like?

Do you need some last minute gift ideas for Mom or the other women in your life? Well, as a woman, I’m here to tell you about some things that I like as gifts--for a birthday or any holiday. One of my favorite places to shop for practical, comfortable, and even unique items is Kohl’s Department store. I have received a number of gifts from Kohl’s, as well as splurged on some things there myself. Here are "a few of my favorite things" (as the song goes). Even if you don't shop at Kohl's, these gift ideas are ones that are sure to please most women. At least they please me!

1. Jewelry Gifts for Women

I would bet that nearly all women like jewelry of some sort. Most of my gifts of jewelry have come from Kohl's with some from JCPenney, as well. As far as selection goes, I have seen the large selection at Kohl’s firsthand. My boyfriend has discovered that, having bought me several watches, necklaces, and earrings from Kohl’s, I especially like their silver jewelry. I love the glow of sterling silver or stainless steel jewelry, and I love how it lasts. Some of the pieces I’ve gotten from Kohl’s are quite dainty and elegant, while other items are more trendy and fun. The Mudd products come to mind as they are often unique.

Prices of jewelry at Kohl’s are reasonable, and, of course, there are always sales. That’s what I like about shopping at Kohl’s. You can get all dolled up with your favorite jewelry, without it costing a fortune. Often, Kohl's offers 25 to 35% on watches, plus 60% off certain jewelry, including my favorite silver jewelry. I should always let my boyfriend know about the deals that come up on a continual basis at Kohl's. He has picked out some great stuff from Kohl's thus far, though, so maybe he doesn't need any help!

2. Comfort Gift Items for Women

As we all get older, we value being comfortable more and more. Kohl’s has a lot of items that fit this category. This store is a great place to find comfy, stylish houseshoes. I’ve had several pairs from there over the years, and I’ve loved them all. I prefer slip-on houseshoes (slip-on sippers--that's a novel idea!). I wore out my first pair my boyfriend bought me from Kohl's and was glad to receive another pair the following year. The pair shown are not slip-ons, but they're excellent for really cold weather when I just want to settle in and not take them off.

I’ve yet to try a foot massager or a robe, but I have sure eyed them. Of course, Kohl’s carries beauty products, too, from lotions to facial creams—anything a woman could need, really.

3. Items for the Home

Kohl’s is a great home store, as you can find what you need for every room in the house. You can add comfort and color to the living room or bedroom with pillows and throws. Those throws are always on sale, often up to 60% off. I know, because my boyfriend has bought a couchful of them! You can find oh-so-soft bed sheets at great prices, too. You may not want to purchase that special woman in your life something for the bathroom, but, if you do, Kohl’s has it!

For the lady who likes to cook, Kohl’s is the place. They have tons of cool kitchen dishware and appliances. From bright to elegant, their dishware collection is incredible. They have unique and interesting items. Some time ago, I found a neat line of catware—for lack of a better name—on sale. I purchased a cat cookie jar, trivet, and salt and pepper shakers. They were all marked down, too!

For my last birthday, I received a three crock pot slow cooker, with which I am absolutely thrilled. Kohl's has so many kitchen gadgets that I would love to have. Their old-fashioned waffle iron reminds me of the one my mom had when I was a kid. I love looking at their kitchen stuff!


Other Gift Ideas for your Shopping List

Kohl’s isn’t the only place to shop, of course, for great items for gifts for women. Other stores such as JC Penney and Macy’s also have an assortment of items that any woman would be glad to have. Amazon is also an excellent source for various items—music, electronics, books, and craft supplies. All of these stores offer great online deals. Wherever you decide to shop, jewelry, home items, and personal comfort items are nearly always gift items that women will enjoy.

If you’re still looking for a gift for Mom, a girlfriend, or any woman in your life, you might check out these Kohl’s coupons, if that's the store that interests you.I know that I've had some excellent gifts from Kohl's, which makes it one of my favorite stores.

Hi Victoria, I was about to stop at Kohl's today. I got a catalog in the mail and liked their selection of sterling silver and stud earrings. I will pass by tomorrow. Thanks.

You're right, Kohls does have everything and is a great place to shop, especially if you're at a loss for gift ideas. Would you believe I have yet to even begin Christmas shopping, and on top of that I need to mail all my gifts? I love those cozy slippers and I may have to get a pair for someone on my list. Thanks for the ideas.

ktrapp--Good to see you! Yes, I would believe that you haven't started Christmas shopping. I haven't either! Too busy this year. You'd better hurry, though, if you need to mail things! Merry Christmas!

Bill, well, if she did like jewelry, Kohl's has some great deals. LOL. I wasn't a huge fan of jewelry until my boyfriend started picking out this really groovy stuff, and I thought it was so sweet--I loved it! So, yeah, you probably shouldn't buy her any or she might turn as I did. LOL. Get her some cool houseshoes instead!!

Thank you for all of these gift suggestions.. I think they are fabulous and sure to help out for someone not able to figure what to get mom.. I love the idea of jewelry.. I have always thought jewelry is a great gift, even if it's something small, I think it's something that women in general appreciate, especially mom :) I will have to check out Kohls.. I have always heard of it but never been there.

My mom and dad and my brothers and sisters all 10 of them died in the 2004 Tsunami when i was 11 years old


lovedoctor926 3 years ago

@ Sammy- This must have been painful for you at such a young age. How did you cope?


lovedoctor926 3 years ago

Kohl's has great gift ideas. I also like the jewelry. they have a nice selection of white diamond stud earrings in 14 k. they are reasonable as far as price, but it doesn't mention anything about jewelry certification. the heart watch is nice. Merry Holidays!

Victoria Lynn 3 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Sammy, I wonder as lovedoctor does--how did you cope? That must have been so difficult--and still be, especially during the holidays.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 3 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

lovedoctor--Thanks! It's my favorite watch. I also have a nice, brown one from Kohl's. I don't know about the certification, but none of my jewelry has ever turned in color. Happy holidays. Hope you're doing well!!

We have three large stores Wal-Mart, Kohl’s and Shopko. My mother no longer wants slippers, jewelry and things like that. I now buy her things that she has trouble getting like stamps, cards and gift cards for groceries. Most often I send money.

Voted up on your hub.
