If you have a stay at home mom in your life and want to give her the best gift that will lift their spirits and make her feel a little special, here are some great ideas.
You could give one of these or a combination of these gifts. They are all practical but also ones that any stay at home mo will appreciate and enjoy!
Being a stay at home mom is sometimes a thankless job. There are so many mundane tasks that must get done each day and often go unnoticed by others. So use this as an opportunity to say “thank you!”
The Best Gifts for a Stay at Home Mom
Gifts for Pampering
1. Gift Certificate for a Massage
Stay at home moms are on their feet for a lot of the day: cooking, cleaning, taking care of the kids. It can wear her out. A massage would be a welcome treat.
2. Gift Certificate for Pedicure or Manicure
I haven’t met a mom yet that didn’t like to get her nails done. As a mom, getting her nails done can seem like a luxury. It costs time and money. So when you give this gift also make sure you schedule a time to watch the kids so she can enjoy it!
3. Handmade Lotion
I received this peppermint lotion a few years ago, and it made my whole bathroom smell divine! It is a thick lotion, and a little goes a long way.
The lotion came from my childhood friend’s shop Nourishingly Natural, an organic luxury skincare shop. Definitely check out her lotions for a pampering gift!
Gifts for Around the House
1. Custom Wall Decor
My very talented friend makes custom wall art through her business Picket and Plank. If you are looking for something beautiful and unique for your home, check out her designs!
2. Pretty Apron
I wear an apron every single day either to cook or clean. Wearing a pretty apron* makes such a difference in my mood and confidence. There are so many styles available that would make it fun to match the apron to the personality of the stay at home mom in your life.
3. Baskets/Cute Containers
There’s always room for another basket! I use them all over my home for various purposes. Some hold toys, others hold kitchen tools, and I even have one hanging on my wall!
With the popular farmhouse style available right now, there are countless baskets and containers to choose from. I love the baskets with chalkboard labels*! You could purchase a few of the other items mentioned here and put them inside a cute container and give it as part of the gift.
1. Coffee or Tea
If the mom in your life enjoys a hot cup of coffee or tea, this is a great gift that you know she will use. You can find so many varieties at local grocery stores. Find one that is unique like this Starbucks holiday blend and peppermint mocha* as an extra special treat.
I have only met a couple of women who do not like chocolate. While I do not understand this, everyone is entitled to their own opinion! 🙂
However for those who do enjoy a chocolate treat*, this is often a welcomed Christmas gift. Just like coffee, there are many varieties available at grocery stores and even online.
3. Pre made Food Mixes
I love making food from scratch, but it can be time consuming getting out all of the ingredients and then washing the measuring cups and spoons. That is why I always love to receive food mixes as gifts.
You can purchase these from the store or make your own. When I was a teacher, I received mixes for bread, pancakes*, hot cocoa, tea, and soups. I used every single one of them! In the past I have even gifted my parents with specialty bread mixes for their bread machine. That way they could enjoy special bread without having to put a lot of work into making it.
I love giving and getting these types of useful and fun Christmas gifts and hope they have given you some gift inspiration for the stay at home mom in your life!
