It's hard to believe but the holiday season is here, and after a pretty dismal 2020 I feel like we all could use as much peace and joy as possible as we close out the year. Gift giving is absolutely my love language. Even though I'm a notorious last-minute shopper, I put a lot of thought into the gifts I give my loved ones. And I put a lot of thought into the only holiday gift guide I bring back year after year: The Working Mom Gift Guide.

This year's gifts are all about making mom feel good, whether she's heading into an office or working from home. I looked for things that would make brighten up her office, reduce stress, keep her cozy, and simplify daily tasks. All but one of the items on this year's list of ideas are things that I would be happy to find under the tree this year, and I hope this guide helps you find the perfect gift for the working mom in your life.

25 gifts for Working Moms all under $100
