In this post: Discover 10 gift ideas for working moms. Moms are special, show them how much you care with these fun and thoughtful gifts!
I get it. Working moms are hard to shop for! They just seem always to have everything they need. But no need to fret, I have come up with this list of gift ideas for working moms to help ease the burden of picking out the perfect gift.
As a working mom myself, I know what these moms want.
While it is hard to compete with colorful, hand-made creations that your kiddo crafted special for you, these store-bought gifts follow at a close 2nd.
This isn’t the usual list of candles and bath balms. It’s is stocked full of ideas that the mom in your world will be thrilled you thought of. They are useful, fun, and heart-warming gifts that can be given with confidence.
10 Gift Ideas for Working Moms
1) Amazon Prime –
If the mom in your world doesn’t already have a membership to Amazon Prime, this is a phenomenal gift! In addition to free two-day shipping, you also receive Whole Foods discounts, Amazon Music, Audible Channels, Prime Photos, and Amazon Video with a Prime membership. Can you say, fantastic gift?
2) Amazon Fresh –
I just learned about this awesome service. I live in a small town. So, unfortunately, can’t take advantage of this service, but trust me if I lived in a larger city, I would be all over this!
My sister is the one who turned me onto it, and swears by it. I am green with envy that she lives in an area where she can have groceries literally dropped off at her doorstep.
For a small fee on top of your Prime membership, you can have groceries delivered directly to your home or office. One of the last things a working mom wants to do after a long day is hit the grocery store on her way home from work. Check out Amazon Fresh and ease some of the burden your working mom experiences.
Every working mom needs a crockpot! They come in so handy when life gets crazy! My favorite thing to do is spend a weekend prepping food. I store these prepped meals in gallon freezer bags in the freezer. The night before I want to eat a meal, I take out the bag, store it in the fridge, overnight. In the morning before I head to work, I pop it in the crockpot. Voila, when I get home a hot, nutritious meal waiting.
4) Portable Charging Station –
There is nothing worse than having your device die in the middle of a busy workday. With this portable charging station, the mom in your life won’t have to worry about losing power.
Let’s face it, there isn’t always time or energy to wash your hair when you are a busy working mom. Insert Hair Dance Dry Shampoo, and this problem is solved. I especially like this product because it is all-natural, eco-friendly, and made with no talc, parabens, baking soda, phthalates, or aerosol. Now your mom can look fabulous even on the days she is running late.
6) Blue Light Shield Computer Glasses –
These glasses are perfect for moms who have to stare at a computer most of their day. Protecting their eyes from 90% of the harmful rays which can cause deterioration, these glasses are the answer to your gift-giving needs. She will know you truly care when you show that you care about the health of her eyes.
What working mom wouldn’t love having a digital picture frame to put on her desk. With this frame, her family will be right there with her during her workday. The benefit of having a digital frame is that the pictures rotate, so much more interesting than a traditional frame!
8) Planner –
All working moms need a good planner. The Happy Planner is great because you can purchase inserts to customize this planner to her specific needs. It is designed to be added and subtracted from each year. So once she gets started with her Happy Planner, she will never need to purchase another planner again.
9) “Boss Up” by Lindsay Teague Moreno –
Lindsay is a powerhouse whose book is sure to inspire the working mom in your life. With humor and grit, she shows what is possible for woman who navigate the work/life balance.
10) Massage –
This list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t suggest a massage as the perfect gift this year! Of course, as a massage therapist, I am a little biased when it comes to the gift of massage. But even so, I think most moms would agree that there is almost no better gift than that of a massage — time for her to relax and rejuvenate after working long, hard hours.
Gift-giving doesn’t have to be stressful this year! Equipped with this list, you are sure to knock it out of the park! And know that when it comes down to it, working moms just want to spend time with you. Gifts are cool and all, but quality time with loved ones is just as the commercial states: PRICELESS!
