Gifts for STEPMOM

Updated on November 21, 2014

Stepmom Love

Gifts for Step Mom to show her how much you appreciate her. I've included cool personalized presents for stepmother and other meaningful suggestions. Giving Stepmom Love is the Number One Gift Ideas for Stepmom. As I often say, the best gifts don't have to cost anything. I have been a stepmother for over 20 years now and I can tell you from personal experience that a simple phone call on your stepmothers Birthday, Mother's Day or ANY day means so much.

When I was first married and the kids were younger, my husband really didn't think to show his kids to acknowledge me on some special occasions and to be honest, I was a little hurt by that.

Don't tell my husband that I am telling you this, OK! I think it is the dad's place to suggest and help the kids come up with Gifts for Step Mom. In the beginning of a new second marriage, this is new for everyone, including dad.

Making a homemade Mothers Day Card for Stepmom will be an incredible and very touching idea. Dad needs to suggest it, maybe get the paper and crayons out and even sit down and help them, depending on their age. If you don't start acknowledging and showing appreciation for stepmothers when the kids are young, it may never happen.

When my step kids started giving me a call on Mother's Day and or giving me a card, I can tell you it meant sooooo much to me. Most likely they will be at their mom's house on Mother's Day so a call is very important.

Remember to Call Your Stepmother on Special Occasions

Let her know how much you appreciate all that she's done for you. This will mean even more than any gift that you buy.

TIPS for DAD - Just my thoughts as a Stepmother Myself

In my humble opinion, as a stepmom, I really appreciate it when my step kids give me a card, gift and or call me on my birthday or Mother's Day. Just the thoughtfulness or remembering me on these days means so much to me. Sometimes dad don't realize their children, young and older, need guidance to remember their Stepmother on special days.

Step moms, as with all moms, just love being appreciated and remembered but sometimes stepmothers are forgotten on these days.

  1. For younger children, sit down with them to make a Card for Special Occasions.
  2. Take them Shopping for a gift. Remember, it is the thought that really counts, not how much you spend.
  3. Sit down at the Computer and Go Shopping together Online. Let the kids make suggestions and get excited about how much you know their stepmom will love the gift.
  4. For your Older Kids, gently remind them how important it is to acknowledge their stepmother on these special occasions. Make some suggestions, such as, Calling her, buy or make a homemade card or write a special letter. A small thoughtful gift will be really appreciated too.
  5. How about helping the kids serve mom breakfast in bed or bring her coffee in bed with a fresh flower. That's really nice.

      @favored: You are right. I was actually a little sad at times while writing this article because I do think that step parents can be forgotten on special occasions. It means a lot to me when my adult steps kids remember me on those occasions. Thank you so much for stopping by.

      This is a topic that I don't think gets addressed as it should. I like your new designs, especially the shirts and the cat with the glasses. Really nice Linda.
