Inspirational Gifts to Give Mom Who Works from Home
For the Mom who Wants or Needs to Get Organized:
I am a planner addict, I’m always reading productivity books and curating and sharing planning tips. I know that in order to achieve my goals, I need to have a well thought out plan to break my goals down into manageable pieces. Juggling 3 kids school and activity schedules, a home I can never seem to get decluttered and clean enough, my blog and my chronic illness means there are always a million things fighting for my attention.
Without a planner with enough room for my to do lists, I’d be completely lost and forget EVERYTHING. I used to buy basic planners and they were but I always felt like I was forgetting something (and often I was) because I had a gazillion other to do lists and post it lists everywhere, the basic planners were TOO basic.
But in the past 2 years, I’ve discovered that pretty planners help me stay motivated, the more I want to look at it, the more likely I am to use it and make the best use of it. Here are my 3 favorite pretty planners and I think they make terrific gifts to help a work at home mom achieve her dreams.
The Passion Planner is my favorite weekly planner that I used in 2016 and 2017. The cover is in various colors but the minimalistic design inside is clean and simple. I love that it starts out with a Passion Roadmap where you start off with writing down your craziest wish list, the things you want to accomplish, no limits, just what drives you. Here’s what mine looked like.
Then each week, I can write down what I’m going to focus on and make a separate list for my home and work (which is my blog) to do list. I have the Classic size so there is plenty of room to write my menu plan, my weekly review, color code to keep track of how I spent my time and the tasks I completed each day. I bullet journal in my Passion Planner and keep all kinds of trackers so I can crush those goals I set in my roadmap.
The Living Well Planner
Another stellar planner, the Living Well Planner* is sure to be a motivating, bright and colorful spot in mom’s day. With space for goalsetting, budget and expense tracking, hourly scheduling, menu planning and project planning, this beauty has everything work from home moms need to juggle their busy lives. You can also purchase extra coordinating stickers, Do it Scared personal mission statement worksheets and other downloads to crush goals this year.
The creator of the Living Well Planner is Ruth Soukup who is a seven figure income blogger and founder of Elite Blog Academy that I am taking right now. Elite Blog Academy* is an exceptional and comprehensive blogging for business course. If Ruth created this planner to manage her blog, speaking engagements, EBA course creation, bestselling book writing and her own family, then it must be awesome!
Day Designer Planner
If mom prefers a daily format, the Day Designer* is my favorite daily planner. With the gold binding and tabs, the Day Designer is classic and elegant with plenty of room to write down your tasks each day and dedicated spaces for top 3 priorities, a large to do list, things due, dinner plans, notes and hourly schedule. You can read my full review of the Day Designer planner here.
The Purposeful Planner
I discovered the Purposeful Planner* this year when they were having a 50% off sale. I got the daily version and it’s similar in bulk and size to the Day Designer but it has some extra spaces for tracking water and health, prayer and praise and a 15 minute task. I’ve loved it and that cover is sooo gorgeous…see?! Get a $10 off coupon when you sign up for their email newsletter here*!

If mom is a blogger, be sure she heads over to download my FREE blog planner that she can download on Google Drive, Excel or in PDF. With over 30 customizable worksheets, she’ll be able to keep track of her goals, to dos, stats, income and progress to take her blog from a hobby to a profession.5 planners mom will love to help her manage her life and crush her goals Click To Tweet
A Purse Big Enough to Carry Her Laptop and Planner
I’m not a shoe hoarder but I do have a severe weakness for pretty purses. I don’t use my purse as an accessory to match my outfit, I use the same one every day until it wears out. So it gets a lot of use carting it around. Fossil purses are by far my favorite brand of purse. The couple I have endured motherhood right along with me. This gorgeous Fossil Emma Work Tote* is big enough for mom to carry around a 15″ laptop, planner and accessories so she can work on the go.
For the Mom Who Can’t Take Enough Pictures
For online businesses, images are everything. High quality images draw people to your blog or business page and camera phones can look amateurish and unprofessional. Bloggers and business owners these days need a high quality camera.
I love to take pictures whether of my kids, nature or my blogging printables, books, planners and projects and as I improve my images, my blog traffic has definitely increased along with it.
Sony A6000 Mirrorless Camera Bundle
At 24.2 mexapixels, built-in WIFI and able to shoot continuously 11 frames per second (about twice as fast as other cameras I’ve looked at), this lightweight Sony A6000 Mirrorless Digital camera* is a powerhouse.
Canon Rebel t6
This camera is more reasonably priced and an entry level DSLR. Still everyone I’ve talked to that has a Canon Rebel* recommends it as a great camera to start with for a DSLR. I got this one on Black Friday and I am in love!
Stylish DSLR Camera Bag
Already have a DSLR and a boring black bag? I bet mom would love one of these stylish DSLR Camera bags*.4 stylish gifts for moms who love to take pictures Click To Tweet
For the Mom Who Could Use a Break from Cleaning
A serious motivation for me to earn a full-time income from my blog is so I can hire a cleaning service again. I don’t like cleaning! I could use a break and I’m sure any mom would love to come home to a fresh, sparkly clean house that they didn’t have to scrub themselves!
Whether the kids do it themselves or you hire someone to do it, mom will love this!
For the Mom Who Wants to Squeeze in More Physical Activity
Standing Desk Converter & Anti-Fatigue Mat
Standing desks are better for your back for moms who spend a lot of time working at a desk. You could walk in place or do some light stretching while you stand to get in some extra steps or flexibility.
This nifty standing desk converter* can be placed on top of any desk to make it a standing desk. It is easily adjustable so mom can change it from a standing to sitting desk throughout the day with the pump of a lever.
Make sure to get an anti-fatigue mat* for mom to stand on to cushion her feet, these are great to put in the kitchen too where mom does dishes and near the stove. I have two like these in the kitchen!
FitBit Charge HR
The FitBit Charge HR* is my favorite fitness tracker. My Superhubby got me one and I scoffed at the idea since I knew with the pain in my feet from Rheumatoid Arthritis, I would not be able to walk 10,000 steps a day. But still her persisted and amazingly the FitBit helped me understand my body and chronic illness better.
Whether mom sets a goal of walking 10,000 steps a day or just wants to work to improve her overall health, the FitBit can help mom track her physical activity through her steps, calories burned, flights of stairs walked and even hours of sleep.
I have a purple one but this slate blue one is $20 cheaper right now and I do love blue!
For the Mom Who Needs Help in the Kitchen
Just because mom is working, doesn’t mean we can go out to eat everyday. I’m a big fan of cooking simple and delicious meals, it saves us a fortune and helps me stick to my diet for my Rheumatoid Arthritis which in turn helps me have the energy to keep up with our busy lives.
Plan to Eat Menu Planning Tool Subscription
If mom is struggling with finding time to create a menu plan and creating shopping lists, she’ll love Plan to Eat Menu Planning Tool* as much as I do. She can easily import recipes from the Web, add them to a menu plan and create a shopping list with a few clicks of the button. I’ve had a subscription for a couple years now and it has simplified my menu planning so much.
Even if I’m out and about, I can access my recipes and create a shopping list from my phone so I can grab the ingredients while I’m out. Talk about a time and sanity saver!
For the Mom Who Needs A Boost of Motivation
I love to read productivity and motivational books so of course, I have a few books to recommend in my gifts to give mom who works from home!
You are A Badass by Jen Sincero
If mom is like me, I can get down on myself and doubt my abilities when the tough gets going as it often will for work from home moms. You are A Badass is an irreverent and hilarious book that will have mom affirming to herself “I AM a Badass!” and have the guts and passion to pursue her dream.
Money-Making Mom or Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine
I read Say Goodbye to Survival Mode* and it helped change in my life for the better to look at how I spend my time with intention. Author Crystal Paine is the successful blogger behind moneymakingmom.com and mother of 3 kids. She tells us with raw honesty what her struggles were juggling motherhood and launching a successful business. You can read my review of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode here.
I won a copy of Crystal’s second book, Money Making Mom* which is still waiting on my shelf to read but I think will help me regain momentum when I’m needing a pick me up. Crystal has a down to earth and easy to relate to writing style and she helps me keep my priorities in perspective.
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Big Magic* seems to be one of those transformative books for creative entrepreneurs. As work from home moms and bloggers, I see that we all must be creative, to think outside the box in order to stand out in a sea of other bloggers with the same dreams and goals as we have. Maybe mom needs some Big Magic to free her mind and learn to embrace the power and creativity that makes her unique.4 books to give moms who need some extra motivation to chase their dreams and get things done Click To Tweet
