Top Gift Ideas for Busy Moms 2020

Happy December! Today, I am sharing some gift ideas for busy moms. I’ll admit that moms can be tough to shop for as we often say we don’t need or want anything. (Or we’d rather shop for ourselves…when we have time!).

I have every single of these items in this post, so I can guarantee there is something here that is sure to be a hit with your favorite busy mom. Moms do most of the holiday gift buying, so when it comes to shopping for a mom, her family struggles with ideas. A lot of times moms say that don’t want or need anything. So, I’ve got some gift ideas for your mom or maybe you are on a mom who needs some ideas to give to your family.

Time Saving Gifts for Moms

One thing moms need? More time:) If you have a busy mom in your life who wants to stay more organized and efficient, consider one of these ideas.

Key Chain Ring// $25.00

I asked for one of these key chain rings for my birthday last year and I love it. No more digging around in your purse for your keys. It is so easy to find this large ring in your bag.


It also doubles as a bracelet. So when, I am running a quick errand, I just keep the ring on my wrist. There are so many fun patterns and colors to choose from.

Apple Watch Series 3

If you really want to wow your mom, get her an Apple Watch. I LOVE my watch. My favorite feature is answering the phone or reading texts directly from the watch. I have the data plan for the watch (an extra monthly fee), so I am able to travel without my phone and still answer calls.

Also, you can track your steps, activity levels and workouts on the watch. There are a lot of fun features with the watch and I probably don’t even use half of them yet.

For an extra treat, get this cute leopard print watch band or one of the many other patterns.

Planner (on sale)+ Stickers //$12.95

For the mom who still likes to stay organized with paper and pen (that’s me!), pick out a pretty planner and some planner stickers! This planner is gorgeous and it has a lot of nice features. There are 3 sections for each day including an area to jot down some notes of gratitude.

The dates are not filled in, so you can start this planner at any time.

This planner comes with some stickers, but it is always fun to get some planner stickers. You can really make the planner personalized ( and pretty!) with stickers.

Gifts for Health and Relaxation

Everyone mom could use a little time to recharge and relax!

Heated Blanket // $29.50

If you have a mom who is always cold, this heated blanket would be a great gift! My kids are always stealing my blanket, so maybe you need a couple of them!

Kindle //On Sale!

For the mom who likes to read, a Kindle is a great option. Moms can throw their Kindle in their purse and read whenever they can steal a few minutes (car pool line and kids’ sports practices!).

Yeti Water Bottle// $29.99

Moms are always taking care of everyone else, which includes making sure their family stays hydrated. Sometimes, they forget to stay hydrated themselves. This Yeti Water Bottle is a lifesaver. It keeps drinks cold all day long and is the perfect on the go drink option! Every mom needs a good water bottle for herself.

Practical Gifts for Moms

Do you have a mom who prefers practical and very useful gifts?

Dyson Stick Vacuum

The Dyson Stick Vacuum is one vacuum all moms can use! I got one earlier this year and it is still a favorite cleaning tool. The best part is that it is so easy and lightweight that all of my kids are able to use it. Win-win!

There are several different models out there, but at the time I ordered mine, this version had the best ratings. Fortunately, it is not the most expensive option!

Instapot// On Sale!

This kitchen appliance is perfect for busy mamas! The Instant Pot allows moms to prep dinner in no time. The Instant Pot is the opposite of a Crock-Pot:) It’s 4:30 in the afternoon and you don’t know what’s for dinner. Throw some frozen chicken breasts or salmon fillets in the Instant Pot and you have dinner in 20 minutes.

Most Instant Pots have multiple features, so you can even saute, slow cook and steam food all in the Pot.


Stylish Gifts for Moms

Moms who love fashion and style deserve a clothing subscription box! These subscription boxes are perfect for moms because they don’t have to go out and shop. The box of clothing arrives straight to her door:)
