Christmas Gifts for the Work at Home Mom
The reason I work so hard to be home with my kids!
Gifts for the Work at Home Mom
Do you have a work at home mom in your life that you are wanting to get the perfect Christmas gift for? It can be difficult to choose the perfect gift for anyone, and a work at home can be more difficult due to the fact that you want to provide them with something useful and that could save them time in life and business. As a work at home mom, these are gifts I would personally love.
What to Consider When Christmas Shopping for a Work at Home Mom
Work at home moms have a variety of needs, and wants in their life. These are a few basic things to consider when shopping for Christmas gifts, work at home moms need to;
-Stay awake late hours and keep motivated.
-Time to relax that they usually do not give themselves
-Help around the house with cleaning and child care
-Comfort in their home office
I am providing a list of Christmas gifts that you can purchase through these links, or hopefully it can provide you with great ideas to help the work at home mom in her everyday lift.
Work at Home Mom Gift Preference?
If you are a work at home mom, which would you prefer?
Help the Stay at Home Mom Keep Organized
All work at home moms need something to help them stay organized. You can get her a personal organizer, desk organizer, white board, or even a nice pen set would be appreciated by most work at home moms. Think about anything you would need in an office setting, and you are almost always guaranteed to get the gift right.
Help the Work at Home Mom Stay Awake!
As a work at home mom I have found one of the most difficult things for me to do is find energy. Between my kids and my business, it can be difficult to stay focused. One thing I truly enjoy is a great espresso. It is one of my personal guilty pleasures in life, but most of us work at home moms do not want to spend the money on something so extravagant. It is hard for a mom, especially a single mom, to validate spending money on something that is not completely necessary in their every day lives. For me personally, a gift such as an espresso machine would be more helpful than anyone could imagine. Even if it is one of the less expensive options, it would mean the world to me if I received an espresso machine as a Christmas gift.
Give the Christmas Gift of Relaxing to a Work at Home Mom
Most work at home moms forget one person, themselves. Give the gift of relaxation to the work at home mom in your life. This can be done in many different ways, and if you know the work at home mom fairly well, you will be able to pick a gift that will truly help her with her busy life. To most work at home moms like myself, it is the little things that make a difference.
-Babysitting the kids, or taking them for a few hours
-Night out with friends (Dinner, movie, dancing, etc.) Just time to get them away from the life they have every day.
-Give the gift of helping with the kids transportation (taking them or picking them up from school, taking them on errands, etc.)
-Mani, pedicure, or massage gift cards
I have to say that all of these things are helpful for a work at home mom, and I am speaking from experience. I am wishing for a few of these from Santa this Christmas!
Here is a link to print your own gift cards to give to the work at home mom in your life and you can make it a personal experience.
Help a Work at Home Mom Around the House
Some work at home moms, and women in general, do not want gifts that have anything to do with cooking or housework. So if you are going to choose a gift like this, be sure that she needs and will appreciate it.
I have found that cooking is one of the most difficult things to make time for when you work at home. There are some things that can help around the house that costs no more than time, or you can get a gift that will help save time when doing things around the house.
No cost help:
-Clean the house
-Babysit a few times when she needs it
-Walk the dog, clean the litter box, or clean the fish tank
Items that cost, but are really helpful:
-Computer cleaning items
Now if you really love the work at home mom, and have the money to spend;
-A New Washer and Dryer ;-)
Give the Christmas Gift of Comfort
A work at home mom tends to sit at a desk for long periods of time, so comfort is something that we strive for. There are so many things that you can give a work at home mom to help her stay comfortable in her office, and your choice may depend on the like of the mom you are buying for.
Great comfort gifts:
