Being a mom is the absolute best job around! Last year we added our third baby in less than four years and YALL. I’m so busy all the time! It’s a constant on-the-go schedule with my munchkins!

The Absolute Best Gift Ideas For Busy Moms

Until 2022, I was the full-time working mama on the block. Let me tell you, I have so much respect for every busy working mom out there! The amount of scheduling, prep work, and planning I had to do on the daily to get everyone out the door on time was crazy! On top of that, I had to show up to my job on time and do well! Working moms don’t ever get a break and it’s truly like having TWO full-time jobs!

This year, I’ve been working part-time and living the stay-at-home mom life during the week. While being a SAHM is so much easier for me in a lot of ways (and something I’m SO incredibly thankful to get to do), it has its own unique challenges. We had 3 babies in 4 years so the insanity level of currently having 3 toddlers is off.the.chain. I often have fewer actual breaks in the day when I’m with the kids than I did at work!

This year, when my husband asked what I wanted for mother’s day, I found myself listing a lot of things that would just make my insanely busy life a bit easier! SO, I’ve rounded up the best gift ideas for busy moms so you can get the moms in your life something they’ll actually LOVE!

The BEST Gift Ideas for Busy Moms:

1. Stay on Track Planner- $28

Moms are usually the schedulers for the family and have so much to keep track of! I do a lot of planning on google calendar but sometimes I just feel the compulsive need to write stuff down so I can methodically check off my to-do list. This stunning daily planner from Wit & Delight is SUCH a winner for me! I love how it gives you space to write out a detailed daily plan!

2. Essential Oil Diffuser + Oils– $30

Busy moms deserve the chance to relax and unwind! This is the prettiest essential oil diffuser that will blend into the aesthetic of her living room, bedroom, and beyond! Be sure to purchase some 100% pure essential oils for her to relax with!

These essential oils are an inexpensive 100% pure option.

P.S. This is an exact dupe of the $125 Anthropologie “stone-look” diffuser!

4. Instant Pot- $350

This is honestly one of the best gift ideas for busy moms… It might seem like a strange Mother’s day gift but TRUST ME this has made my life so much easier.

I have the Ninja Foodi and it has been life-changing. It combines a pressure cooker, crockpot, air fryer, and more in one machine! I literally use it every day and it saves me so much time. I can throw the kids’ chicken nuggets in and have them warm in 5 minutes which saves me tons of cooking time.

6. Massive Water Bottle- $40-$80

Ok, hopefully, I’m not coming across as way too basic here, but this Stanley thirst quencher water bottle is my favorite thing ever. Being a working mother means long hours on my feet and if I didn’t have a massive water bottle in my line of vision I’d get so dehydrated. (I’m a nurse, so I basically never sit down!) PLUS, even though it’s massive it fits perfectly in my car cup holders which is AMAZING.

Proper bath etiquette requires spa sounds playing on your speaker, a glass of wine, and DEFINITELY these floral-scented bath bombs!

The Ember mug deserves a place in this gift guide. I want one of these SO badly.

It’s motion activated AND you can even change the temperature of your coffee with the Ember app!
