Today, there are so many things that make raising kids easier. Some of those things can come in the form of the best gifts.
To help you find the right present for a hard-working mom in your life, I’ve created this fabulous gift guide that is perfect for both stay-at-home moms and working moms.
I’m starting off with some things for the baby at home, then some things for the home, and finally for you – the mom! Some of these are affiliate links and I may earn a small commission.
10 Best Gift Ideas for Stay-at-Home Moms
1. My Top Pick: MamaRoo Sleep Bassinet
Without a doubt, the hardest part about being a new mom is getting your child to go to sleep. That’s why I recommend this baby bassinet by 4moms.
This product comes with five different rocking patterns and a host of other features that are perfect for soothing your baby into a restful sleep whether it’s for naptime or a long night stretch.
2. Baby Monitor with Remote Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera
This is the gift that will keep on giving – from newborn to baby and even toddlers. You are able to keep your eye on your child and even chat back and forth with him or her from any space in or around your house.
3. Baby Shusher the Sleep Miracle
This is a great gift to round out this section because you can use all three together. For my kids, a noisemaker was so helpful in getting them to sleep. Heck, it even works for me sometimes!

If a stay-at-home mom is… well, staying at home a lot, get her something that will make the house feel like a wonderful place to be. For me, that means a clean house. Here are some handy home gifts that make keeping the house look nice easier than ever before.
4. Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus 9-in-1
Nobody has got time to slave away over a hot stove, especially with children running all over the place. This multi-use pot makes cooking homeschool meals simple!
5. Ninja Foodi 5-in-1
This is another gift that makes cooking ridiculously easy. The Ninja Foodi is multipurpose and multi fabulous. Take advantage of the air fryer function and follow some of these amazing recipes for easy-to-make dinners with quick cleanup.
6. iRobot Roomba 675
Who wants to spend the afternoon vacuuming? Not me, that’s for sure! The iRobot is perfect for all floor types and particularly useful at getting rid of pet hair. A robot vacuum brings all kinds of convenience!
7. Dyson Cyclone V10 Cordless Vacuum
Keeping your home clean doesn’t have to be a chore. Thanks to the Dyson Cyclone Vacuum, busy moms can stay on top of the cleaning with minimal fuss. This vacuum cleaner is super easy to use if you don’t go for the one mentioned above.
Beauty and Self-Care Gifts for Moms
If a stay-at-home or working mom needs anything, it’s a good old-fashioned pampering session. So you should try some of these gifts to help her feel beautiful after a long day of running around after the kids.
8. TheraBox Self Care Subscription Box
Subscription boxes are the gifts that keep on giving. Arriving every month, the Therabox is designed to reduce stress and promote happiness and serenity. In this box, you get up to eight amazing goodies every month.
9. 36 Nurture Me Organics Bath Bombs
These all-natural bath bombs are free from allergens and made with therapeutic essential oils to help moms unwind in the bath once the children have gone to sleep. I love a good bath bomb in my bath!
10. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer
I’ve never enjoyed blow drying my hair until I got this hairdryer and volumizing hot airbrush. It makes my hair look like I just left the salon after a blowout. I’m kinda obsessed with it.
Other Amazing Gifts for Busy Moms
These are just a few of the gifts that my fellow mom friends and I use to make our lives easier on a daily basis. What gift was such a great idea that it made the perfect gift for you or another mom? Find me on Instagram at @ChristinaAllDay and let me know.
When all else fails, you can get a gift card, but everything mentioned above makes for a practical gift for a busy mom and is a great way to say Happy Mother’s Day or celebrate any other special occasion.
Throwing on some yoga pants and a face mask at home or heading out for a spa day with a family member or mom friend also makes for a thoughtful gift.
Something a little different that is fun for the entire family is a mental health day for mom. That means everyone but her leaves the house to take care of the kids so mom can binge TV shows, call close friends, plug in an essential oil diffuser, or bring in a traveling masseuse for a full body massage.
At the end of the day, a unique gift or series of original gifts are nice, but the best gift ideas have an added benefit to the mom life we all live, so the important thing is to think outside the box – a nice meal, beauty products, something to save time, hiring a cleaning service, an adult coloring book, a scented candle, a massage gift certificate, and even a love letter during a hard time are all things that will hold a special place in mom’s heart.
What’s the best thing on this list? Tell me @ChristinaAllDay on Instagram.
