If you’re a working mom, you know a thing or two about multi-tasking, not to mention how desperately you need a vacation, stat! After all, the average working mom clocks close to 100 hours a week—more than double the amount of time required for a typical full-time job. What’s more: The U.S. Department of Labor notes that 70 percent of moms are working moms, meaning they hold a job outside of the one that involves caring for their children’s every waking needs. That’s a lot of mamas going above and beyond to bring home the bacon and ensure that their family, specifically their children, is well taken care of. 

While moms deserve to be pampered every single day of the year, there’s no occasion like Mother’s Day to go all out to show the working mom in your life just how valued and appreciated she really is. Before you spend unnecessary dough on a bouquet of flowers and some expensive chocolates, consider reading through our list of gift items that the working mom could seriously use—like the stuff that will help make her day-to-day a bit easier and more enjoyable. 

Here is our list of the best gifts for working moms for Mother’s Day 2023. 

Best Gifts for Working Moms

Best Pampering Gifts for Mom

Finca Victoria, Wellness Retreat

Best gifts for working moms

When we asked the moms on the Bobbie team what they most want for Mother’s Day (or any day) the answer was “time away”. Whether mom works from home or not, she would love a few days with no cooking or cleaning or laundry or homework, where someone else looks after her wellness for a change. Finca Victoria could be the place for relaxation and clarity— located right off the coast of Puerto Rico, in Vieques.

If mom doesn’t have enough time for a wellness getaway, at least book her a night at your nearest spa hotel. One night of peace is truly the gift that a mom needs, but may never think to ask for.

Apple Watch Series 8 Smart Watch

Best Mother's Day Gifts

What doesn’t this watch do? From making calls to sending texts to Apple Pay to Fall Detection, this is every mother’s sanity check. Did you know it even has family planning support with features like wrist temperature-sensing for retrospective ovulation estimates? There isn’t a mom who doesn’t need this, for Mother’s Day and every day.

This device brings the foot spa to her home, with speed heating, temperature control, vibration and even removable rollers that can help give her the foot massager she so desperately needs. 

Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set

Best Gifts for Working Moms

Made from 100 percent premium viscose bamboo fabric, these sheets are temperature regulating and super soft to the touch. They’re also lightweight and naturally cut down on moisture, keeping you dry, comfortable and cool all night long.

Keurig® K-Supreme® Single Serve Coffee Maker

Best Gifts for Working Moms

Most coffee-drinking moms need a cup of joe in their hands -5 minutes before they open their eyes. While that goal is near-impossible, it isn’t impossible to have a freshly brewed cup in their hands within a matter of seconds after they press the “brew” button on this instant coffee maker. The K-Supreme coffee maker is the first in the Keurig series to feature MultiStream Technology, which helps ensure that the coffee grinds within each pod are evenly saturated for maximum flavor. It allows you to control the beverage size (6, 8, 10, or 12 oz.) as well as the intensity thanks to the “strong” button.

It can allow wine to last weeks and months without going bad.

Best Personal Helpers for Mom

Google Nest Hub

Best Gifts for Working Moms

Working moms have a ton of to-dos on their list, not to mention a never ending schedule to keep track of for every single member of the family. Old-school calendars are overrated, so upgrade her with the Google Nest Hub. In addition to keeping track of your calendar and creating reminders and to-dos, this smart device serves as a speaker for music, news and just about anything and also can control tons of things in your home—your lights, your thermostat and even locking your doors.   

Google Pixel Tablet with Charging Speaker Dock

Best Gifts for Working Moms

So think Google Nest Hub (see above) BUT with the portability of a tablet. YES. YES. YES. The Pixel Tablet rests on a charging speaker doc, so when it’s in hub mode you get the amazing Google assistant features (Hey Google: set a timer, play this show, music from Taylor, you get it), but then when you need to move over to the sofa to finish your favorite show (or have the kids finish theirs) just go off-base and roam. You can also set boundaries and parental controls (e.g., screen time limits) with the Family Link app and set up multiple profiles so each user on your tablet has a portal to their own apps and content, as well as an individual pin and fingerprint unlock.

Hatch Daylight Alarm Clock

Best Gifts for Working Moms

An alarm clock might not be the sexiest Mother’s Day gift out there, but just wait until you learn all that this baby can do. It’s essentially a personalized sleep-wake machine that helps you fall asleep faster and more soundly and helps you wake up refreshed and ready for the day. It utilizes a sunrise-style alarm clock so it slowly lights up when it’s time for you to wake—a far less disturbing way than the standard alarm clock. It also allows you to play meditations and sleep stories that you can choose from their app to play right on the device.   

Best Sentimental Gifts for Mom

Minted Classic Heart Snapshot

Best Gifts for Working Moms

Whether Mom works from home or heads to the office every day, there’s no denying that she’d appreciate a photo gift that showcases her sweet children. This photo art from Minted is unique in that you can use up to 30 photos to create a heart-shaped collage that comes framed with a 4-ply, museum-grade mat board. It comes in a wide range of sizes and can be shipped right to your door (or Mom’s workplace).

Aura Carver WiFi Digital Picture Frame

Best Gifts for Working Moms

If one (or even 30) pictures is not enough, why not get Mom a digital picture frame that lets her view as many photos of her family as she wants. This Aura frame sets up within minutes and utilizes WiFi to add photos and videos from your phone to the frame itself. You can even invite other people to join and be able to add photos from their device right to the frame. 

Quince Long Sleeve Pajamas

There is no mom who doesn’t need new pajamas (raises hand). Especially pajamas that are practical AND cute. These long sleeve linen pajamas from Quince sleep cozy and give you enough coverage to answer the door when needed. They come in three beautiful colors, all with piping for a classic “I’m dressed without being too dressed” look.

Choosing the Best Mother’s Day Gift

Listen to mom, what would really make her day special? It’s not always the obvious gifts like flowers, but the more thoughtful ones that help make life easier. Helpful=special when it comes to mom.
