Useful Gifts for Stay-at-Home Moms

  1. YETI Rambler Travel Mug

Whether Mom is a coffee-lover or avid tea-drinker, these insulated travel mugs are incredible for keeping hot beverages hot for hours making the perfect gift for stay-at-home moms. Moms are always on the go, busy looking after the kids, plus constant housework, errands, and a lot of other family coordination so it’s no surprise that her hot beverage never stays hot for long.

Why not treat her with one of these durable and useful, yet adorable, ramblers so that she doesn’t have to reheat her stale coffee for the 8th time. Best part? You’re not adding to her dishwashing load as these guys are dishwasher-safe. Perfect!

(On a personal note, as a busy mom to 2 (soon 3) little ones, I cannot live without my YETI!)

  1. Cosy loungewear 

Stay-at-home mommas have busy days running after kids, driving from A to B to C, completing errands, and taking care of other household requirements. When she finally gets to put her feet up, all she wants to do is be comfortable. Give her the gift of comfort with cosy loungewear!

  1. Luxurious Faux Fur Slippers

Mom doesn’t deserve just any old slippers. Get her the gift of luxurious slippers to care for those busy feet! These cosy slippers by Jessica Simpson are 100% synthetic with a soft faux fur interior and a comfortable memory foam sole.

Best part?

These beautiful house slippers are even machine washable. Luxurious meets practical!

  1. Year Planner or Day-Timer

Reduce mom’s stress and help her feel organized with a nice quality planner or day-timer. This practical gift will surely help sort out any mom’s hectic schedule.

  1. Avantree Bluetooth Headphones

Many people use the trendy tiny earbuds that just fit in your ear, and while they are discrete and lightweight, I’m not sure they’re the most practical option for SAHMs. Personally, I love the Avantree Neckband Headphones because they are not bulky like other over-ear headphones but without such a high risk of losing them like the tiny individual earbuds (and they’re only a fraction of the price of other popular options!).

With integrated magnets in the earpiece, these light earbuds securely cling around the neck like a necklace when not in use. Yet they comfortably go anywhere you want without the hassle of dangling cords.

  1. Graphic Mama Tee

There are so many different styles and quotes to choose from, you can surely find the perfect graphic tee for the stay-at-home mom in your life. Make sure it’s comfy and cute and it’ll be a staple piece in her wardrobe.

Get something for mama to feel cute in while she’s busy changing diapers and trying to make sure the kids are well fed.

  1. Purse or Handbag

I’m the kind of mom who actually doesn’t want my daily bag to cost an arm and a leg. I need something useful and practical for my busy day-to-day life, which is why these crossbody purses the perfect option for any busy mama like me.

  1. Gift Card for the App Store

Gift cards aren’t always the way to go but sometimes the options and freedom to choose is exactly what mom wants. Spoil her with whatever apps, music, or games that she wants with a gift card to her cell phone’s App store.

  1. eBook or eReader

An eBook or eReader is a great present for the mom who loves to read. With storage space to contain thousands of books, the mom you’re shopping for will never run out of great pieces to read.

  1. Electric Espresso Machine

Let’s face it…

Mom doesn’t always have time to prepare herself a nice cup of espresso on the stove. She’s got a million things on her mind and can’t always be waiting to brew the perfect cup.

That’s where an electric espresso maker is truly a dream machine.

It brews delicious coffee in just a few minutes and has an automatic turn-off so that the coffee doesn’t burn if she isn’t keeping a careful eye on it.

That’s not all!

It’ll even keep the coffee hot for 30 minutes if she forgets all about it!

  1. Instant Pot

I don’t often recommend kitchen products as a gift for mom because in my opinion household products should be a family purchase rather than a present. However, there are a few items that I think would classify as a nice gift, such as a fancy Instant Pot.


Cooking, steaming, sauteeing… what doesn’t this thing do? Take some of the work out of family meal prep with a useful present like this.

  1. Stand Mixer

This kitchen product is a useful gift that is worth getting for any mom who loves to bake. Durable and beautiful, this mixer is definitely an exceptional gift that will blow that special mama away with your generosity.

Help mom beat the boredom as a stay-at-home mom by encouraging her baking hobby.

  1. Colouring Book

Get something for mama to sit down and chill, taking her mind off the house and kids for a little while. With a relaxing adult colouring book, she can work on some stress-free art.

There are many reasons that colouring as an adult (and mom) can actually ease stress and even take the brain to a meditative calm state!

Whatever you decide to gift the momma in your life, make sure you think about what she really wants and can use. Moms are pretty practical so useful gifts for stay-at-home moms can really show them how much you care.
