7 Great Christmas gifts that your mom will actually use

Nutritionist Rania Batayneh, MPH is the author of the best-selling book, The One One One Diet: The Simple 1:1:1 Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss. She holds a masters degree in public health from the University of Michigan.

'Tis the season for gift giving! Between driving around the mall parking lot for 15 minutes trying to find a spot and the long lines at the stores, I have resorted to online shopping this year.

With offers for free shipping, special online codes for discounts and more unique offerings, make gift giving fun and simple this year. I have picked out seven gifts that are perfect for Mom or any special woman in your life!

Deck the walls

I love photos and art so when I came across Art.com's new SwitchArt magnetic frames and prints, I was sold! This is the perfect gift for Mom. She can update the art prints, often and easily, in the same frame; the prints peel on and off the frame like magic. You can create custom SwitchArt prints from your own personal photos, or shop curated SwitchArt prints featuring hundreds of art and photography images found on Art.com.

Price point: Prints start at $15. Frames start at $30. The sets (which include two prints and a frame) start at $80.

Healthy indulgence

This is one of my favorite gifts, not only because it is filled with KIND bars but because you can reuse the box all year round! Not to mention, it's the gift that keeps giving. This limited edition KIND Holiday Cube is filled with 20 bars from the Nuts & Spices line and an opportunity to spread kindness to the world. Check it out!

Price point: $40

Cocktails & mocktails

This is a great holiday gift for Mom and right in time for your New Year's party. The Soda Stream Play is a simple way to whip up festive holiday cocktails and mocktails or even add sparkling water to the menu in less than 60 seconds! And while you are shopping online, you should check out the SodaStream Naturals. With only 40 calories and no high-fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners, SodaStream Naturals offer a healthier alternative for all your holiday hosting and gifting needs. I love the Apple Peach flavor!

Price point: SodaStream Play $90. Soda Stream Naturals $8 per unique flavor.

Tap into your inner yogi

Grab your yoga strap and start stretching! The Inner Yogi Gift Set was designed to be enjoyed by yogis of all skill levels, anytime and anywhere. With four yummy gifts in one, you can get your yoga on in 2015! I love the Yoga Deck of cards by Olivia H. Miller; you can try one new pose each week. Increased flexibility and Zen here I come!

Price point: $47

It feels like Christmas morning

Bring the beauty of the garden into your home this winter. This gorgeous Christmas Morning Snowfall Bouquet from ProFlowers incorporates fresh greenery into a floral centerpiece. I love this winter white arrangement of white roses and lilies fragranced by the eucalyptus.

Price point: $60 (without a vase). Delivery available until Christmas Eve.

Make it personal

Who doesn't love a good casserole and, more importantly, a beautiful casserole dish to serve your favorite holiday recipe in! I love this Personalized Stoneware Casserole Dish from Personal Creations. Not only does it come in three great colors (cobalt blue, burgundy or deep green) but it is also lead-free, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe.

Price point: $40

Nosh much

This Deluxe Gift Box from Urban Remedy includes organic grain-free vegan almond brownie, cacao and ginger brittle, and organic cold-pressed juices. You will also find Neka Pasquale's new book Urban Remedy: The 4-Day Home Cleanse Retreat. With tons of clean-eating recipes, you may find yourself one step closer to healthy in 2015.

Price point: $145 which includes free shipping. Order by Dec. 21, 2014 to receive in time for Christmas.

Thank you to SodaStream for gifting me with a SodaStream Play! I will consider it an early birthday gift for me!
