What Mom Really Wants This Christmas.


The holidays are upon us – we are in full swing of the busy season, and while moms across the country are shopping away, keeping lists of present ideas, and sneaking in Amazon orders from the porch before the kids get home to see, they may be too busy to make their own gift wish list. So, if you’re one of those mommas, share this post with the gift buyers in your life. Maybe this year, you’ll get what you really want for Christmas. 

We asked local moms what was on their Christmas list – these are their responses, all from real Memphis moms. 








  • time to herself
  • homemade coupons from the kids (coupon for a hug, room cleaning, breakfast in bed…)
  • letter with an interview from each kid about their mom
  • finally print a family photo from that photo shoot on a canvas 
  • frame homemade art 


And for more Christmas gift ideas, check out our 2017 edition of the same post!

A native Memphian who did a 5-year stint in Knoxville for undergrad+grad school, Kathryn loves Memphis. Being a Memphian by birth and by choice, she takes any opportunity she can to share her favorite spots with anyone who will listen. Kathryn is married to her high school sweetheart, a fellow VOLS grad who now works at a local hospital, and mom to Ruthie, born January 2015, Kate, born August 2018, and their encore baby Eliza, born July 2020. After being team #midtownismemphis for (almost) her whole life, Kathryn traded in bungalows and original hardwood for closet space and access to Target. She's adjusting to being an East Memphis mom, but luckily still makes it to all her favorite Midtown spots. Being a mom is the hardest but best thing she's ever done.
