Work at Home Mom Gift Ideas
This post is slightly different from my typical posts, but as a mom who works from home, I thought it was a good fit. I have worked from home in some capacity for over ten years, and fulltime from home for about three years. I know what makes a great work at home mom gift.
The work at home mom faces a unique set of challenges. It’s tough to have work responsibilities, deadlines, plus having kids at home on top of it. For most work at home moms, this is the reality. Moms sometimes tend to neglect the things we want and focus on something the kids want, stuff for the house, etc.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with this; it’s just how our brains tend to work. It merely means that there’s probably something the work at home mom in your life needs, but hasn’t gotten around to buying for herself.
Work at home mom gift ideas
Here are more than 20 of the best gift ideas for moms who work from home.
1. A good set of headphones
Let’s face it, work at home moms are usually multitasking, and it’s nice to have your hands free. Bose QuietComfort 35 II noise-canceling headphones make a great gift and come in black, silver, and rose gold. I have these, and I love them.
If the Bose headphones are out of your budget, one of my favorite gifts that I ever received was my Powerbeats headphones. My husband got them for me a few Christmases ago, and I used them almost daily until they wore out. I loved using them for phone calls, listening to podcasts, working out, traveling (hey, I’m a Hawaii Travel Agent!), and more.
2. Anything coffee related
Who doesn’t love coffee, amirite?! Well, not everyone loves coffee, but it’s safe to say that most of us work at home moms love caffeine in some form. You might need to get some hints for this one, but I’m sure your work at home mom would enjoy a caffeine boost.
You could buy her favorite coffee or tea, a new coffee accessory, or even something simple like a Starbucks gift card. My favorite coffee accessory is the Koffie Straw. It seems silly, but this little straw keeps your teeth whiter and is an excellent alternative to disposable stir sticks. I’ve been using mine every day for almost five years and only recently had to purchase a replacement.
3. Stability ball chair
This might seem like a weird gift, but I love having a stability ball chair. It’s great for your core, and sitting all day in a regular chair can get painful. It’s nice to have a way to move around while you’re working.
I know a few other work at home (and work out of the house) moms who love their stability ball chairs, so I think it would make a great gift.
4. Kindle or a Kindle Unlimited
I love using my Kindle to de-stress and do some reading. I used to have Pinterest on my Kindle, but now that I use Pinterest heavily for work, my Kindle is strictly reading only! If the work at home mom in your life already has a Kindle, I think a gift subscription to Kindle Unlimited is a great gift. Kindle Unlimited gift subscriptions are available for 6, 12, or 24 months.
Another thing that was on my wish-list for a long time was the Kindle Paperwhite. If you’re using a Kindle for reading, as I do, this is the one to get. Another great gift for readers would be an Audible subscription.
5. A personal assistant (kind of)
Moms who work from home are always multitasking, so something like an Echo Show could be beneficial. It’s not a real personal assistant, but it’s the next best thing.
6. Water Bottle
I know that a water bottle doesn’t seem like a very personal gift, but bear with me. I love my Hydroflask, and I love it! Having a good water bottle reduces waste and helps you drink more water.
I believe that high quality, fun water bottles make an excellent gift for the work at home mom who has everything. Another earth-friendly and budget-friendly alternative to the Hydroflask is a glass water bottle. I used to have one of these, and I liked it. I prefer the Hydroflask because it keeps water cold all day (and night!)
7. Travel Accessories
This is a travel blog, so I couldn’t leave this out. If you’re looking for a gift for the work at home mom who travels, travel accessories are a great idea. A cute neck pillow is useful for air travel. I’ve lost two this year, yes two, so it’s always good to have a backup. Other options could be a new travel bag or water bottle (like the one mentioned above.)

I don’t recommend buying fitness gifts or gym memberships for someone who shows no interest in them. That’s rude. That being said, if you know she has an interest in health and fitness, there are lots of gift ideas that work well.
A subscription to a gym or yoga studio can be a great gift. If you know that she loves working out at home, many home programs offer gift subscriptions. What about a new yoga mat or resistance band set?
Last but certainly not least. It may not be the most exciting gift, but most moms would appreciate a gift in the “services” category. Here are some ideas that most work at home mom would love:
- House cleaning service.
- Childcare services for a girl’s night or date night.
- Gift Certificate for a salon service or massage.
- A VA for her busy growing business.
- A gift card to her favorite store.
I hope that these work at home mom gift ideas helped guide you to the perfect gift for the work at home mom in your life! If you’re a work at home mom, I’d love to know your favorite gift that you received.
