What are some gift ideas for a busy working mom?
Finding the right gift for a mom who seems to have everything can be tricky. I like to first think about how they spend their busy days at work. Do they spend a lot of time at a desk, on the road, or do they work from home? Find fun, meaningful gifts that will make those spaces cozy and inspiring. Giving gifts like planners, fun pens, and notebooks… anything that makes working a little more fun is a great idea!
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 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!
I purchased this for my husband as a “we bought a house and just moved” gift. I knew he would be sore from the move and this massager was perfect for his sore neck and back. I’ve since commandeered the gift and use it every time I have tension in my neck. I’m so impressed with it and can’t believe it’s such a great price! This has been my reader’s favorite Christmas gift for moms
This all-in-one hair-drying brush is one of the most wished-for items on Amazon (meaning it’s one of the most popular items that people have added to their wishlist.)
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!
This soft and aromatic eye pillow will help relieve tension and stress.
Working moms are busy, busy at work and too often, our coffee gets cold, and we can’t have that! This mug will keep your coffee at the perfect temperature that you choose.
I received a pair of these for my 40th birthday and they are amazing! I didn’t quite believe all the hype but these are by far the best wireless ear pods I’ve ever used. The microphone on them is perfect for those business calls when I’m on the go and I’ve been able to listen to audiobooks and podcasts while driving or shopping. They are fantastic! And yes… I’m a huge Apple Fangirl.
Looking for the newest? the AirPod Pros has been on sale a lot lately, it is regularly on save for up to $50 off!
If you’re looking for a more affordable option These wireless earbuds have excellent ratings!!
My friend put me on to these and I need one! Tiles help you find your lost keys, phone, purse or any other thing you misplace. Check it out!
AirTags are an Apple product that people love even more than the Tile. You can put them in your purse in case it is lost. Many people put them in their luggage so they can track it if the airline loses your luggage. (what a great idea!).
This is dreamy!! Who wouldn’t want to rest with a nice foot massage at the end of a long day? I have terrible foot pain and I wish I had this years ago. – This is one of my top Christmas gifts for a busy mom! **There is often a very generous coupon offer, be sure to check the listing for the discount.
This notebook is so cool! If the working mom you’re shopping for is a pen-and-paper type of girl but also loves technology to keep her organized, this notebook is perfect for her! After taking notes in the notebook she can simply take a photo and her notes will be saved to Evernote, a popular app for notes.
Looking for a smaller pocket-sized RocketBook notebook? The mini RocketBook is new and perfect for your purse or pocket!
Desktop calendars like this one provide her with daily motivational thoughts, quotes, and positive affirmations to help her stay encouraged throughout her day.

This alarm clock has been receiving tons of praise lately. It is a smart alarm clock, sound machine, and light. The alarm has a “sunrise” feature that peacefully wakes you up each morning.

This small portable charger is so handy.
