We are thrilled to share the 2023 Greater Lansing Area Moms Holiday Gift Guide! The holiday season is right around the corner and we are so excited for all of it! In this guide you will find both in-store and online shopping options from both locally owned and operated and others you will find throughout the Great Lake state!
GLAMoms is still making lists and hope you will join us in shopping from businesses featured below. While there is still plenty of time to figure out where you will shop, plan ahead, there continues to be ongoing, and often unforeseen shipping delays and disruptions in the supply chains.
Scroll down through the guide and take a look. The GLAMoms Holiday Gift Guide is full of curated gifts, skincare gifts, eat, drink and be merry gifts, sparkly gifts, gifts to read, gifts to wear, gifts for the home and gifts of experiences and places to visit! We have also included a few of our favorites in case Santa is shopping the GLAMoms Holiday Gift Guide.
If you do not have time to take a look now, bookmark for later and return when you have a moment. The guide will also be on our home page throughout the holiday season!
Also, be on the lookout on Instagram and Facebook for the GLAMoms 12 Days of Giveaways coming in early December – we have quite a collection of incredible gifts ready to share with you.
And last but certainly not least, a very special thank you to our generous sponsoring partner Eastwood Towne Center.

It all began as a road-trip idea when Connie Hahne and her husband Erich were making the 5-hour drive home from their cabin in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. By the time they were home they had a plan to represent the “Mitten State” – Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on one hand and the Lower Peninsula on the other.
While traveling over the Mackinac Bridge, Erich penned the slogan “Always have a MAP on Hand”!
Shop for yourself, friends, family – including children and even Michigan Mittens for infants. You will find Michigan Mittens around the state and Michigan Mittens (and so many more items) can be purchased online too!
