I didn’t always consider myself a Work at Home Mom but I do now that we depend on my income and the opportunities that blogging and blog coaching affords our family. It is far from glamorous and I do put in a lot of time and hours but the schedule is flexible and varied. With that being said what are gift ideas for work at home moms? Just because we are home more doesn’t mean we don’t need or want things, lol.
I know that it’s hard to come up with things unless I start putting in my Amazon Wishlist throughout the year so I poled some fellow WAHM’s to find out things they would give for gift ideas if they could only pick 3 things.
I would love a Large Dry Erase Wall Calendar for the wall behind my desk which then means I have to be sure to buy enough dry erase markers and dry erase eraser in my favorite colors to keep my planning all organized! On my desk I usually have some sort of desk blotter calendar or simple AT-A-GLANCE Yearly Calendar which helps me keep track of impromptu homeschool events and deadlines.
Being off the computer and learning is important so reading a good book like Balanced: Finding Center as a Work-at-Home Mom would be a nice gift to consider.
Every beverage drinking mom needs a good mug or tumbler to drink her favorite beverage in. It doesn’t have to be old and ugly so why not pick up something cute with a little inspirational quote on it?
If your office space is located away from the kitchen then a Coffee Mug Warmer is a great item to have. I actually own two and use one for candles and the other for keeping beverages warm. During the Summer it doubles as a way to infuse oil with herbs. Be sure to shop DaySpring’s $5 Mug Sale 11/21 to 12/2!
I have found that working on the PC has some draw backs like wrist and arm pain. A vertical mouse helps relief some of the strain from a lot of right clicking as does a mouse pad with wrist support.
My favorite pens to write with while brainstorming are R.S.V.P. Ballpoint Pens! I was first introduced to them about a decade ago during a MOPS meeting where every mom received a pen that had a scripture added into the barrel. I have been using R.S.V.P pens ever since!
Since I am a blog coach and social media manager I need tools that deal with graphic design like PicMonkey for photo editing and ways to schedule social shares like Buffer and Hootsuite.
I love using my noise canceling headphones to listen to music or podcasts while I work. If you need to make phones calls then a pair of earbuds with Built-in Microphone would do the trick.
A subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited with a 30-Day Free Trial or Amazon Prime Music would be a nice gift to give when you do not know what music the WAHM on your list prefers to listen to.
If you are a work at home mom or know of a WAHM who’s family could benefit from this list please share this on Pinterest or Facebook!

I spy a few things on this list that I need to add to my Amazon wishlist. My sister is also a WAHM and you’ve given me some great ideas for her too.

Hi Thaleia…since I work from home, I can totally related to your gift ideas! Here’s hoping I get some of them for Christmas 🙂
I love good pens, so thanks for sharing your recommendation. I think a dry erase calendar would be awesome too.
These ideas are awesome! Thanks!
