Shopping for a single mom? Here are some great gifts ideas that she is sure to love and appreciate.
My husband and I divorced when my oldest daughter was 4-years-old and my youngest son was only 2-months old. That period of time when I was a single mom was both the hardest and most rewarding period of my life.
If you are shopping for a single mom and are not sure what to get, here are some gift ideas that I would have loved when I was a single mom.
It is probably not surprising that the #1 thing a single mom is sure to appreciate is some time off! Offering to babysit, or arrange to pay for a babysitter so she can go on a date, have time to clean the house, or just be alone is incredibly valuable.
At Home Spa Gifts
For the mom who likes to feel pampered, this NanoSteamer 3-in-1 Ionic Facial Steamer acts as a humidifier while unclogging pores and removing blackheads. It’s at a great price point for an at-home spa treatment whenever she needs to feel pampered.
This is an amazing tool for a single mom, because it streamlines and simplifies dinner time, while significantly reducing the total time it makes to get food on the table. It’s truly a game changer.
Sunbasket Meal Prep Service
If you know a single mom who enjoys cooking, gifting her a week or two of Sunbasket’s Meal Prep Delivery is a great gift.
They come with everything she needs to make an organic, home-cooked meal, in less than 45 minutes.
There is nothing a mom loves more in the world than her children, and having her children’s names around her neck is a special gift, indeed!

Mom’s One Line a Day Journal
This 5 year journal and memory book is a great gift for any mom who is sentimental and likes to record memories to cherish for a lifetime.
It allows moms to capture the everyday moments of mother hood in a daily diary format in just a few minutes each day.
Words of Affirmation
This may sound cheesy, but giving words of affirmation to the single mom is a great way to boost their self-esteem and self-worth.
- You are doing an amazing job.
- You are a wonderful mother.
- All you need is within you.
- You have great maternal intuition.
- You are so brave.
Almost every woman loves flowers! When I was a single mom, the only time I recieved flowers was when I bought them for myself (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
If you’re buying a present for a single mom, consider grabbing her a bouquet of fragrant flowers. They’re sure to brighten her day.
Another thing that almost every woman loves is bath bombs. They’re fragrant, indulgent, and relaxing, which is what every tired, stressed mother needs.
House Cleaning Service
Another amazing gift for any mom is a house cleaning. Seriously, as a single mom, or even now as a married, but super busy mom, the idea of coming home to a clean house sounds a little like winning the lottery.
Amazon has a service where you can find local house cleaners at reasonable prices.
I love learning how to create things from scratch, so I know what ingredients go into everything from homemade face scrubs to clean eating recipes. I enjoy sharing my favorite recipes with other families so they can have a healthier home, too!
