When it comes to holidays, I love giving gifts. There is so much joy in seeing someone’s eyes light up when they open the perfect, well-thought-out gift!  If you have found yourself here, chances are you are looking for that perfect gift for the mom on your list.  If so, you are in the right place!  Check out this ultimate gift guide for busy moms on your list!

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Busy Moms

Searching for mom gift ideas is not always the easiest. You want to pick out something thoughtful, helpful, and entirely from the heart.  I’ve compiled this mom gift guide for busy moms as a place to start getting those creative juices going.

Even though I have labeled this a mom gift guide for busy moms, this includes all moms. The working moms, stay-at-home moms, and work-at-home moms. I have been in all three of these, and let me tell you. They are all just as busy!  These are gifts ideas for moms of all types, and all can benefit from each one!

 Beauty & Spa Gifts

1.  Having a new pop of color is a fun way to brighten your mood.  Get her a new nail polish set or even a gift basket full of polishes and accessories. You can get cool nail polisher colors online. There are many sites where you can shop them, such as Coteshop.

2. Jewelry is always a fun way to go when it comes to mom gifts.  A little bling can genuinely brighten up her day.  You could for fun set of earrings or even a monogrammed necklace for the special mom in your life.

3.  Moms need to relax at the end of a hard day.  Candles are always lovely, but make sure to pair them up as a gift set with a nice Bath Bomb or some Himalayan Bath and Body salts. 

4.  For after she takes those relaxing baths, make sure to get her a comfy robe!  A great way to make it feel more thoughtful is by getting her a Monogrammed Plush Spa Robe.

5.  Another excellent idea for a gift for mom is by getting her a gift card to a spa!  Give her the gift of relaxation that she gets the option to pick which service she needs.  I love Spa Finder because of the number of choices they offer.  If you will buy a gift card, use this link to take 10% off all gift card orders of $25 or more using promo code TAKE10 on spafinder.com!

Fashion Gifts

6.  Leggings are all the craze these days.  They are comfy and can be used in many different styles.  One way to make leggings a more thoughtful gift is by selecting a pair of Cute Leggings designed by Artists.  One of my favorite only stores is Society6.  They carry some of the cutest leggings that you can’t get in stores!

7.  Sunglasses are not just a summertime gift.  The sun is out year-round, so a cute pair of high-quality shade is always a plus!  If the mom on your list typically wears prescription glasses, buying sunglasses isn’t a typical option.  If you can find out her prescription, ordering her a pair of sunglasses will make her day!

8.  Moms carry so much stuff around!  Between diapers, toys, wallets, and such, our bags are a necessary tool to have.  Make that bag something special, and get her a Personalized Tote Bag to carry around in style!

Household Gifts

9.  No matter if she is a working mom, stay-at-home mom, or a work-at-home mom, chances are she is exhausted!  Help her get a yummy boost of energy by buying her a Keurig Coffee Maker.

10.  Talking about energy, another great gift that will put some positive energy into the home is a Himalayan Salt Lamp.  They have many natural benefits like cleaning the air, helping with allergens, and much more.   If you are looking into getting multiple, check out this four-piece Salt Lamp Bundle.

11.  One thing that takes up a ton of energy out of the busy mom is cleaning!  Make her day by creating a cute little coupon book that includes the time you will clean her house for her.  If that’s not your cup of tea, then you could always help her every day by getting her a Roomba.  These little robot vacuums are well worth it!

12. An oil diffuser is another household device that has health benefits and makes the house smell unique.  Make sure to get her one that comes with oils already, like this Aromatherapy Essential Oil and Diffuser Set.

Gifts for Moms that Make the day a Little Better

14.  Though we’d love every night to relax in a nice hot bath, it doesn’t always (rarely!) happen that way.  Most of the time, it’s a quick shower if you’re lucky.  Singing in the shower is one way to get in a better mood, so help her out by getting an excellent quality Bluetooth Waterproof Shower Speaker Bluetooth.

15.   If you are looking for a gift to help her enjoy some downtime, how about the chance to curl up on the couch with a great read!  Nothing is more fun than curling up in a blanket with a good book at the end of a hard day!  Get her a magazine subscription to her favorite magazine and make her a cute little card to let her know.  Then, get her a beautiful artist-designed throw blanket.  Place the card on the blanket, and wrap it with a ribbon for a great gift!

16.  For the mom that is always on the go, get her a gift that she will use like these Stylish Insulated Water Bottles.  These bottles keep water excellent and cold for much longer, and they are charming!

Gifts for Moms that love the Kitchen

17.  Not every mom loves to cook, but there are a ton of fun gifts to get her for the moms that do.  My favorite is the aprons made by Flirty Aprons. These aprons range from stylish and pin-up to just plain cute and fun!

18.  Another great way to make the kitchen fun is by getting some flirty kitchen utensils and cookbooks.  There are tons of cookbooks to choose from, but my favorite is The Pioneer Woman Cooks: The New Frontier cookbook.  It is full of amazing recipes, and the book itself looks fantastic!

19.  If the mom on your list is a pizza fan, help her up to pie-making skills by getting her Charcoal Grill Kettle Pizza kit.  The results are excellent, and they are perfect for any pizza lover!

20. If you are looking for something extra special gift that she will use all the time, check out these Personalized Cutting Boards.  They are so cute that she can leave them out on the countertop all the time!

Tech Gifts

21. For the mom who loves technology, the Amazon Echo is the perfect gift!  She will get a ton of use out of it by playing music, asking the weather, ordering Starbucks, or playing trivia! Make sure you give her the Gift of Amazon Prime with it!

22. Another excellent gift for that techy mom in your life is a new tablet for reading and watching tv in any room.  Pair that up with a year of kindle unlimited so she can read as much as she wants! Join Amazon Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial

23.  One of my favorite electronic makes a ton of noise!  Not the kind you might think of, though.   Marpac Noise machines help you relax and drown out the chaos by playing calming, white noise.

24.  Wearable technology is another fun gift for moms! Get her a new Fitbit or smartwatch to help her see just how many calories she burns to chase the kids down!  You can also get her a Tile or two to help track down the keys the kids hide on the couch!

25.  For the ultimate tech gift for mom, get her a pair of VR goggles to pair with her phone!  These games are so fun and not something people think to ask for on the list!  There are tons of games, meditation, and trivia games that go with VR goggles for endless fun!
