Favorite Gift Ideas for the Overworked Mom
Gifts for Calm & Zen
Calm and zen moms are much nicer moms than their more harried counterparts. The first part of my list of items for the overworked mom are things that help calm and comfort.
I love essential oils and this diffuser is really nice. Essential oils are fabulous for calm and healing. If you don’t have a diffuser, this is a really pretty one. It’s also BPA-free and uses a high-frequency ultrasonic electrical vibrations to create an ultra-fine mist. Because it doesn’t utilize heat, the essential oil integrity and holistic properties are kept pure.
This has 5 great blends put into one set and we include a free Carlson jute bag to store them in. Includes Peaceful Sleep, Clear the Air, Mental Focus, Peace and Harmony, and Naturally Loveable. Clear the Air purifying blend has a fresh mint aroma, Peaceful Sleep is floral citrus, Mental Focus is minty citrus with wintergreen, Peace and Harmony is minty floral herb and Naturally Loveable has a sweet floral, citrus aroma.
Every overworked mom needs a good book to read! I heard an interview on Fresh Air with Trevor Noah and it sounds like a really great book. I never knew what an interesting man he is, but I know I enjoy his comedy on TV. I would love to read his book.
Wente Wine – price varies
Of course, wine is one of my most favorite gifts – it’s a great calming gift for the overworked mom. I recently tried out Wente Wines and really enjoyed the Southern Hills Cabernet. Head over here and order me a case. 😀 Shipping is only $9.99 if you buy 12 bottles.
Gifts for the House & Kitchen
A clean home and homemade meals make the overworked mom super happy. I can tell you that from experience. Here are a few items that make cleaning and cooking easier. 🙂
O-Cedar Microfiber Steam Mop – $64.99
If you have hard floors and don’t have a steam mop, you need one – it’s great choice for all sealed hard floor surfaces including tile, wood, vinyl and laminate.. This steam mop is my sanity keeper as it kills bacteria without any cleaning chemicals (tested on E.Coli bacterium). I love how easy it is to use and what a nice job it does on my tile floors. Plus the kids enjoy using it too so that’s a win-win! And I’m giving one a way, so make sure you read to the end!
A huge sanity keeper in my kitchen is my set of narrow measuring spoons. I hate it when my measure spoon won’t fit in my spice jars, and I don’t have to worry about that with these at all! Every overworked mom needs a set of measuring spoons that actually fit in the containers!!
It’s always a lovely boost to my sanity when someone else cooks dinner, so how about helping your husband get right on that job with this food thermometer? It’s great for grilling and makes a perfect stocking stuffer too.
American Girl Williams Sonoma Collection – Cook Book & Pancake Making Set – prices vary
If you’ve got girls who would also like to help you in the kitchen, get this fun cookbook, pancake making set, and super cute spatulas! I’m loving these American Girl and William Sonoma gift sets. Anything that encourages someone besides me to cook at my home is amazing! My girls are huge American Girl fans and I know these sets will be a fun surprise for them.
Fun Tech Gifts
Every overworked mom needs a little something fun to play around with. The items in this list are things I have or would love to have. Techy items aren’t just for kids and husbands. Moms like them too!
HP Sprocket – $129.99
Have you seen the HP Sprocket? It prints super cute 2″ x 3″ pictures right from your smart phone and best of all?? NO INK NEEDED!! This might be one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. You can buy it on Amazon!
ZINK paper for the HP Sprocket – $9.99
This paper makes printable stickers! Use this paper in your HP Sprocket, peel off the back, and your photos become instant stickers. I love these little 2×3″ pictures.

All overworked moms need something to make them feel pretty. Or, if you’re anything like me and my family, you’ve got older kids stealing your beauty products, so maybe adding a few of these items to your gift list will make your life easier too! Lately, I’ve gotten really sick of having to track down my blow dryer because my 12 year ran off with it AGAIN!
The Dryonizer 2200 professional hairstyling blow dryer features a 1600 watt ionic ceramic HeatBalance® motor. It produces consistent heat and air pressure and locks in moisture as it breaks down water molecules. It’s lightweight and quiet and it dries my hair really quickly.
Finally, how about a few organic beauty products from JUICE BEAUTY!
I just love what this company stands for. So many US cosmetic companies are shrouded in secrecy and use harmful chemicals without proper disclosure. Juice Beauty’s goal is be transparent and use certified organic ingredients. It’s a very different company motto compared to the conventional, synthetic chemical-laden beauty brands.
Since our skin can absorb up to 60% of what is placed on it, Juice Beauty takes every precaution necessary to reduce the risk that toxins from pesticides might contaminate our bodies, our children’s bodies, and ocean habitats. They purchase the majority of ingredients from local West Coast USDA Certified Organic farms to monitor the quality and limit fuel waste. An many of their products are manufactured with solar power. I’m loving their lip pencils and mascara.
And that’s it. My long list of gift ideas designed to give some peace, zen, and happiness to the overworked mom. What would you add to this list?
