Inside: These are the best gifts for busy moms on the go that are perfect for Mother’s Day and birthdays.
The worst kept secret ever is being a mom is a tough job.
Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a work-from-home mom, or a work-away-from-home mom, the one thing we all have in common is we’re on the go and probably pretty tired.
People talk about self-care and hobbies for moms which always makes me chuckle because basic hygiene activities are not real self-care and most moms’ hobbies include sleeping through the night.
So moms are tired and on the go and hoping for something, anything to make it a little easier.
But there are also gifts that will make being a mom a little bit easier.
Here are a few of the best gifts for moms on the go to make their life easier. These are perfect gifts for Mother’s Day or for birthdays for any mom on the go.
Neoprene Tote Bag– Carry all your stuff in one super cute, waterproof bag that can be a diaper bag, a pool bag, or a running errands in style bag.
Water Bottle to Go– Don’t forget how much water to drink with this cheeky water bottle.
To Go Coffee Cup– This will keep your coffee hot all day even if you forget where you set it down or if you’re in the car all day.
Heated Car Blanket- In the car all the time in the winter? Plug in a blanket and stay warm on the go.
Keurig Coffee Maker– Make a cup of coffee at any time of day in minutes, even if you’re running out the door.
Iced Coffee Maker– We end up drinking cold coffee anyway. Make it in seconds with this.
Thermal Spring Water Misting Spray- Exhausted but don’t want any more caffeine? This misting spray is a lifesaver to wake you up and refresh you. And it’s absolutely essential on hot days.
Stress Relief Candle- One of my faves to just burn in the background of our days (in fact, I’m burning it right now).
Car Diffuser– I love having essential oils going in my car, especially Thieves when I’m running my carpool and there’s tons of kids in my car. This one also has two USB ports for charging phones on the go.
Earbuds with Charging Percentage– Listen to music or podcasts while you get everything else done like driving, chores, and even a workout and know instantly how much battery power you have left.
Ring Doorbell– Know who is at your door even when you’re not there. Know which of your older kids are coming in and out of your house (and when), even if you’re not home.
Power Bar Phone Charger– Charge your phone on the go so you’re never without battery power because nothing is worse than a dead phone and your kids or your kids’ school might call.
Shower Steamers– No time for true self care? Throw one of these in your quick shower to add a little relief.
Tinted Sunscreen– No time for makeup? This is my go-to so it looks like I have a little something on but also protects my skin at the same time.
Dry Shampoo– No time to shower and blow-dry, dry shampoo is a saving grace.
Baseball hat- No time to do hair? I head to a baseball hat, and this is my go-to:
Winter Beanie- No time to do your hair in winter? I slip on a cozy winter hat.
Rechargeable Hand Warmer– Stay warm wherever you go, including those cold sports games cheering on your kids.
Compression Socks– My feet hurt at the end of the day from running around and these help take some of the pressure off.
Joggers– Whether you’re working out or might work out later or won’t work out but want to wear workout clothes, these are the softest, most comfortable joggers ever.
Portable Rocking Chair– Keep in this your car so you always have a chair for the park or for soccer games or baseball games. The cupholder is perfect for anything from your kids’ juice box to your coffee to an adult beverage.
Shoulder Massager- When you have time to actually slow down and put your feet up, this shoulder, neck and head massager is the best gift you can give yourself. This one is ah-mazing.
