5 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Working Moms from Working Moms


20150507-Mother's DayMother’s Day is around the corner. Despite that acute awareness, I haven’t been able to get out of the office to buy a token of my appreciation for my wonderful mother. Thankfully nowadays we rarely have to leave our desk to procure anything. Here are 5 suggestions for a mother’s day gift for working moms from working moms.

Fun Print for Her Office

Given how many hours she spends in the office each day, a fun print to provide motivation and humor is well deserved. The above print is from Etsy which has countless prints for sale or even for download and print if you have a nice printer at the office.

Amazon Prime

In case your favorite working mom haven’t caved to the joy that is Amazon Prime, this is a perfect gift. Not only does she get free two day shipping on countless items, but it comes with music and movie/tv streaming.

Coffee Gift Card

For the coffee dependent working mom, you can’t go wrong with a coffee gift card. Whether she’s tired from a 10 hour drafting session or from a teething toddler, a caffeine boost can go a long way to brighten her day. And bonus for you, you can pick up the coffee card while you’re stopping for your own needed cup of coffee. Here’s my list of favorite coffee places in Palo Alto.

Snack Box Subscription

Subscription boxes have been all the rage for awhile, but my favorite is still the snack box subscription. Who doesn’t love getting a box of delicious snacks. Send your favorite working mom a monthly gift she can enjoy each month and which saves her from having to resort to vending machine snacks.

In Home (or In Office) Beauty Session

Every mom loves to be pampered but sometimes it’s just impossible to get out of the office or the house. Bring the beauty session straight to her by scheduling a stylist or manicurist to do an in home or in office beauty session. There are apps like GlamSquad (operating in Los Angeles, New York and Miami) which is like an Uber for beauty, or salons who directly send a member of their beauty team.
