Ten Gifts for Your Boyfriend's Mom

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Racked's holiday gift guide, for all of those people in your life that are beyond hard to shop for: step-siblings, co-workers, your wacky dad, and your boyfriend's mom (because you seriously cannot give her another scarf). Check back weekly for gift ideas covering all of those unconventional but loveable characters who make your holiday season... unique.

Well, gang, we've made it to the home stretch. We've brainstormed gifts for those people you barely know, your weird folks, the mandatory office gift swap, and treats for your bestie. You've trained hard and shopped harder and now it is time to face your final challenge: your boyfriend's mom.

We've put together ten gift ideas for this pleasant but abstract creature, including a glass teapot from CB2, leopard print flats from the Gap, and a build-your-own-terrarium kit from Sprout Home. Click through the gallery above to check out all of our picks. With only one weekend left to squeeze in your final round of gift shopping, who is left on your list?—Nicola Fumo
