20 Gifts Working Moms Really Want

‘Tis the season to find the perfect gifts for your family and friends!

I love hand picking gifts to fit each of my friends’ talents and interests, and today I’m thrilled to share some of my top picks for gifts that working moms really want! As a business owner, I had so much fun putting this list together.

If you’re a working mom, I hope that you will find new, creative gift ideas to share with your family and friends. Or if you know a working mom, here are a few ideas to kick start your Christmas shopping!

Gifts working moms really want:

Gifts for Her Sanity Gifts For Her Sanity:

She works hard and sometimes needs a little self-care. These gifts are the perfect way to say, “Hey Girl, take a break!”

Gift Cards, Starbucks, Target, etc. Let’s be honest, most of us have a long wishlist and would love a gift card to pick out that item we’ve been really wanting.  It’s an easy gift (yay for the gift giver!) and you can always tuck it into a card and save on postage.

Cleaning services Because having to clean after a busy day at work is a drag. Give her the gift that she’ll brag to her friends about! Check Groupon for house cleaning services!

Gift credit to Hello Fresh! Hello Fresh is a meal delivery services that sends you all of the ingredients you need to make 3 complete meals. We have tried Hello Fresh and LOVED it. I think this is a great gift idea for any busy mom. Use this link to save $40 on your first order!

Bath Bombs Help her relax with a few organic, handmade, and natural bath bombs. These are packaged so beautifully. You can ship them directly to your mom-boss friend, and she will love them!

Lavender Eye Pillow This soft and aromatic eye pillow will help relieve tension and stress.

FabFitFun Box If you’ve been anywhere online you’ve seen this amazing Box subscription service. Each FabFitFun Box comes filled with over $200 worth of high-end products she will love. Use my link and code: WINTER10 at checkout to receive $10 off your first box!


2017-Winter-Box-Shoot-Edit-117_preview_preview Pop Socket I love my Pop Socket! It’s the perfect little stocking stuffer too! It is super handy: you can prop your phone up to watch, and it gives you extra grip when holding your phone (or taking selfies… admit it, we’ve all done it!). These also fit on tablets and iPads.

Massage or Spa Treatment Gift Card Let’s be honest, this is probably what she really wants for Christmas. Save money, buy her a treatment on Groupon.

Gifts for working moms Gifts For Her Office:

Single serve coffee or espresso maker Single serve coffee and espresso machines are so handy in an office setting, especially in a home office. Both the Keurig and Nespresso Machine options have a water reservoir so she won’t have to fill up a pot to brew a quick cup of coffee or espresso.

Nest Fragrances Reed Diffuser – These gorgeous fragrance reed diffusers from NEST Fragrances are a little fancier than your typical candle gift. Their packaging is lovely, and they offer a beautiful trio for the holidays!

Happy Light for desk – This might seem like a bit of an odd gift, but these HappyLights are mood savers!! They help improve your mood and combat anxiety and sleeping issues by providing a moderate UV light (like sunshine!) As someone who struggles with Seasonal Affective Disorder, this is a great gift for anyone stuck in an office all winter! 

Standing Desk – Oh the joys of my new standing desk!! I found this inexpensive standing desk a few weeks ago, and I’ve been thrilled with it. I have more energy and less back pain since I’ve been using it. It is a great way for someone to try out using a standing desk without the huge investment!

Clip Ring Lights for your cell phone (Selfie Light!)  –  If your work-at-home mama is on social media or creating videos online, this little clip-on light would be a great gift! I love that they are small enough to toss into your purse and always have it on hand.

Throw for the office – My office is in our finished basement, and sitting for a few hours can get chilly. I love having a soft, cozy throw on my chair to keep me comfy.

Amazon Dot  Do you ever have a great idea, think of something you needed to add to your grocery list, or just need to hear some high energy music to get you moving? Technology to the rescue!

Gifts for working moms

Gifts For Her Success:

PowerSheets –  Business owners often have important goals but don’t know where to start. This is not a daily/weekly planner – it is so much more. The PowerSheets Goal Planner will help her cultivate good goals for her business and/or personal life and walks her through how to achieve them. She will begin making progress on her goals immediately!

Inkwell Press Daily Planner – I have been a committed Inkwell Press Planner using for years. They offer weekly planners, daily planners, daily docket pads, desk calendars and much more. You can also save $10 on your first purchase of $50 or more!

Apple Watch – All I want for Christmas is …….. An Apple Watch! I love how functional the Apple Watches are. The fact that I can leave my phone somewhere else in the house but still receive important messages is a huge win. Plus, I love talking to myself… I mean, talking to Siri… she keeps me organized. I don’t think I need to sell you on the idea of gifting an Apple Watch, just go do it!!

The 5 Minute Journal – The 5 minute journal will encourage her to reflect and evaluate every day, helping her to cultivate gratitude a little more and more each day.

Beautiful 2018 Wall Calendar – Rifle paper makes gorgeous paper goods, and their 2018 wall calendar is just lovely.


I hope this list helps you find the perfect gift for the working woman in your life. Be sure to PIN THIS POST so you can find it next time you need to buy a gift for a working mom in your life or make a wishlist for yourself.
