Being a stay at home mom is rewarding, but tough. Here are the best Gifts for Stay at home moms

Finding the best gifts for stay-at-home moms can be hard. They might even say they don’t want anything! But if you know what to look for, it will be much easier to find something they’ll love.

Staying at home is a big commitment and deserves an equally big gift. To help you out, we’ve put together this list of 12 great gifts for stay-at-home moms. We hope that these ideas will make your shopping experience easier and more fun!

Why you should trust us to find the best gifts for stay at home moms

Don’t let the cuteness fool you. These are tough cookies.

Mrs. We Tried It is a stay-at-home mom. We’ve got two kiddos, a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old.

It’s tough. From shuttling around kids to school, hockey, and dance class, it can be tough to buy for the stay-at-home mom. They probably don’t want a designer purse or a gift card (com’on… try a bit harder!), but you also want to buy something that actually makes the stay-at-home mom’s life a bit easier.

So, let’s dive into to the best gifts that stay-at-home moms will actually use and enjoy.

#1 Gift: A weighted blanket

I gave Mrs. We Tried It a weighted blanket for Valentine’s Day and she initially rolled her eyes.

However, as you’ll read in our Gravity Blanket Review, it’s the best gift that I’ve ever given her.

She loves it.

If I am traveling, it helps her calm down and sleeps well. In fact, she even hesitates to go on vacation because she doesn’t want to miss her weighted blanket.

Also, don’t miss our Gravity Blanket Promo Code, too. Make sure to get a Beddys (read our Beddy’s Review) for the kids, too.

#2 Gift: Skylight Calendar

Even though stay-at-home moms are mostly at home, their life is busy. Who has soccer practice today and who has snack at school?

We use the Skylight Calendar as a great way to keep our busy family on track. Read our full Skylight Calendar Review, Skylight Frame Review and our guide to the best smart home displays.

What is Skylight Calendar?

It’s a smart tablet that displays a custom family calendar (and even a grocery list and photos, too).

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms?

It syncs with any calendar you use and updates almost instantly.

It even has Google Calendar, which is the calendar that we use at home.

This way everybody can see what’s going on and you don’t have to worry about forgetting one of your many meetings or forgetting an important event.

#3 Gift: Allbirds Wool Dwellers Slip-Ons

The Allbirds Wool Dwellers are simply amazing!

What mom wouldn’t love these on their feet?

Who doesn’t like incredibly comfortable slippers?

We love Allbirds (see our full Allbirds Review)

This dreamy slipper is made with upcycled scraps from Allbird’s wool shoes and a cushioned midsole to make your feet happy.

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms?

It’s easy to slip on and off, super comfortable and machine washable.

#4 Gift: Vurori Joggers

My wife lives in these super comfortable joggers. They don’t look like sloppy sweat pants – they are just the right fit in all the right areas. Read our Vuori Joggers Review and our search for the best Women’s Joggers.

Why my wife loves Vurori Joggers and it’s a great gift for stay at home moms

My wife doesn’t love traditional athletic clothing brands – with their bright, obnoxious colors. She prefers something more versatile clothes, so her favorite brands are ones that can transition from sitting on your couch to rolling around with kids and go do pilates too!

#6 Hotel Chocolat

The Hotel Chocolat Velvestier. Amazing!

If momma’s got her upper in the morning, there’s a good chance she’ll want some hot chocolate, or in this case “Hotel Chocolat.”

What is it?

The Velvestirer, but Hotel Chocolat is a great way to make customized hot chocolate at home… with real chocolate. No crappy powders for mom here!

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms?

#8 Tovala Smart Oven

Sometimes moms just want to have an awesome dinner with no prep, no mess, and no clean-up. That’s the dream, right?

Well, in our search for the perfect alternative to something like Blue Apron, we found Tovala.

Read our full Tovala Review and make sure to use our exclusive Tovala Promo Code, too (we get free food and you get free food!)

What is Tovala?

Think of Tovala as a Smart Oven paired with a meal delivery service (like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh) without the prep or clean up. It’s about the same price and the food is incredibly easy to make.

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms?

You can make restaurant-quality meals (including steaks) with about a 30 second prep time and no clean-up afterward. They’ve now introduced breakfast, and my wife loves it!

Plus, it’s one of Oprah’s favorite things. Can’t beat that, can you?

#9 Kindle Oasis

I know, cliche to put a Kindle on a gift list, right? Well, this isn’t just any Kindle. It’s the Rolls-Royce of Kindles that will make your wife feel like she’s reading an actual book but she can do it in the bath. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s waterproof.

What is it?

The best Kindle ever – it has a built-in light to make reading at night possible without an external light source (which means no more bedtime lights near your face). It’s incredibly lightweight. BONUS: add a pop-socket to the Kindle for an even easier way to hold it… in the bath.

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms?

I’ve never seen my wife read so much in her life…and it’s because this Kindle is easy to use (trust me, if MY wife can use it, your wife can use it) and it’s packed full of great features.

#10 Rothy’s Bags

Can you believe these bags are machine washable?! They are!

Your wife always has to lug around a ton of stuff (like her new Kindle Oasis… not to mention all of the kid’s stuff). She needs a large bag that will hold all her stuff, but also look “cute” and be machine washable.

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms? 

The last part is key. Machine washable. Trust me here. Girl’s purses are nasty. U-G-L-Y, they-ain’t-got-no-alibi UGLY. They are. And that’s because they have to hold a ton of things.

My wife loves Rothy’s Shoes, so, when she saw they were releasing bags, she had to try them out. She loves them.

Our Favorite Rothys Bag
Rothys Tote Bags

Our go-to bag for the pool and summer activities. The fact this tote is machine washable is a game-changer. You can now look stylish while lugging around kids' junk!

#11 Onsen Towels

Mr. We Tried It is the one that hates stinky towels. But less laundry = a win for Mrs. We Tried it.

What is it?

As we mentioned in our Onsen Towels Review, we asked the question: are these $50 towels worth it? The short answer is yes. They are. While these aren’t the softest, fluffiest towels you will ever feel, they just work! And you don’t have to wash them after each use. They last about a week before you need to clean them anyway.

Our #1, hands-down towel
Onsen Bath Towel

Do you hate when you get out of the shower and use your towel and it stinks? Me, too. It's one of my biggest pet-peeves in the world. We searched long and hard to find the Onsen Bath Towel, the only towel that doesn't smell musty. It's a must have.

#12 Ruggable Rugs

Does your wife insist on having hardwood floors everywhere but then covering them up with area rugs?

I don’t understand it either. Read our full Ruggable Review, too.

What are Ruggable rugs?

Explain that Ruggable rugs are machine washable and dryable area rugs that are really well-made. They’re also pretty affordable, too!

Why is it a great gift for stay-at-home moms?

The best part: they don’t slip and slide like regular area rugs (the ones you put on hardwood floors). It makes them perfect to use in the kitchen or the bathroom… two places we know your wife always has an area rug laying around anyways. We actually have one of these as our guest bath mat because I hate those cheap rubber mats that never seem to stand upright when people come over to visit us from out of town. These Ruggables work perfectly!

And… they are machine washable. Seriously, we won’t have any other rugs after this one.

My wife loves light-colored rugs that our kids love to terrorize. So, we just toss these in the washer and they are good to go!

The Only Rugs In Our Home
Ruggable Washable Rugs

Yes, it's true - there is such a thing as a washable rug... and it looks like a regular rug. People are stunned when they tour our home and we tell them about Ruggable. They are also incredibly affordable.
