Everyday I wake up feeling grateful for the ability to work from home. Since college I’ve had a handful of professional work opportunities and each have been great for different reasons but at this stage in my life as a mom to two daughters, I’m loving the opportunity to be a working mom without having to commute. I was home with my first daughter until she was old enough for preschool and I’m enjoying having that same opportunity with my second daughter. There are six years between them and although it means most of my work gets done while they are both sleeping in the night, I couldn’t be more happy with my position as a work from home mom. My holiday wish list isn’t long but I do have some very specific gift ideas for the work from home mom to help you wrap up your holiday shopping. My 10 Gift Ideas for the Work from Home Mom board on Maven has everything on my wish list and would make great gifts for your work from home mom friends and family.
Working from home has it’s many perks but it’s not as “easy” as most would think. Organization is key along with multitasking and juggling more than a handful of tasks simultaneously. After many years of working from home, I know I work best under pressure and tight deadlines or a heavy workload doesn’t overwhelm me. One step at a time is my motto and as long as my daughters are thriving in this environment and work arrangement, I feel like I’m succeeding.
10 Gift Ideas for the Work from Home Mom
Gifts to be comfy at home
Although I do work from home, many times I have video conference calls with clients that require me to present myself professionally. Surprise, surprise all work from home moms don’t stay in their pajamas all day. But that doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice comfort. Gifts to be comfy at home include sweaters and slippers.
Gifts to feel pretty at home
Jewelry, nail polish and perfume adds a little normalcy to my day working from home. Gifts to feel pretty at home also remind me of feeling confident in the workplace when I did work outside of the home.
Gifts for coffee at home
I’ve always wanted an espresso maker at home and would love to be able to make my own coffee shop quality drinks on the busiest work days. Pair it with the perfect mug and gourmet coffee beans for an excellent gift.
Office and Organization gifts
An organized office space makes me feel ready to start the day. Sparkly accessories and organization tools are definitely on my holiday wish list this year.
Inspirational quotes are always welcomed in my office because on those busiest work days when I know I have hours left to do while the rest of my home is asleep, sometimes I need a quick break and reminder to keep moving forward.
