gift ideas for working moms

The most wonderful time of the year is finally here! And with Black Friday literally just around the corner, I wanted to share my favorite gift guide of the year to give you all some ideas of things most working moms would like to find under the Christmas tree or in their often-forgotten stocking.

As always, I look for things that would suit all kinds of working moms, whether they work in an office space or at/from home. Each of these gifts is not only practical but also a little bit fun, and I either already own something like it or would like one for myself.

Each of these gifts is under $50, but we all know that mom is worth that much and so much more. I hope these fifteen ideas help you find the perfect gift for the working mom in your life!

15 Gift Ideas for Working Moms Under $50

1. Eclectic Wall Art - There is really nothing worse than working in a drab, boring space. These fun prints are replicas of famous works of art and are sure to add some personality to any work space.

2. Unique Wooden Candle Holders - Candles are always a popular gift, but this year I challenge you to go above and beyond and give mom something she can cherish for years to come, like these beautiful wooden candle holders. They'd be perfect additions to a bookcase or as a standalone centerpiece.

3. Cozy Blanket - We all know that you can never have too many blankets. I especially love this boho-patterned sherpa blanket. It's got such fun colors and looks so cozy.

4. Chic Backpack Purse - These have been on trend for the last couple of years, but I always love a good chic backpack purse, especially when going to an event or traveling. They're much more practical than a regular purse that has a single shoulder strap, and this one is so dang cute with the bee adornment.

5. Travel-Size Manicure Kit - These are a great stocking stuffer! I always like to have a nail kit with me - in my purse, in my desk at home, and in my desk at work. You never know when a pair of nail clippers will come in handy!

6. Makeup Brushes - A good set of makeup brushes can make all the difference in your mom's morning routine. I have an older version of this set and absolutely love them.

7. Under Eye Patches - When you're a working mom, sleep can sometimes be hard to come by, leaving you with annoying dark circles to show the world just how tired you really are, but with these under-eye patches you can say buh-bye to the evidence of your lack of sleep. I've not used these ones before, but they have really good reviews.

8. Wireless Keyboard - I've had my eye on one of these for awhile. I love that it's got that old-timey typewriter feel to it but with a fun twist on the colors. This particular keyboard also comes with a matching wireless mouse.

9. Desk Organization - If there's one thing I've learning in the last two decades of working, it's that you can never have enough desk organization. I really like this set, and it comes in a bunch of colors.

10. Quirky Post-It Holder - I feel like Post-It notes are the universal office supply, so why not give them a place of prominence with a fun dispenser?

11. Bluetooth Headphones - Does your mom work in a noisy office-space? These wireless headphones can help with concentration while alerting coworkers that you probably can't hear them at the moment (earbuds are trickier when it comes to that I've found). These come in a few color options and fold up for easy storage.

12. Bluetooth Speaker - I adore this retro-inspired bluetooth speaker. Not only can you sync it to your phone, but it's also a working FM radio. And it'll look so cute on whatever shelf you place it! It's perfect for being the office deejay or your home office...or wherever else you listen to music.

13. Single-Serve Coffee Maker - I wouldn't normally put a coffee maker on my list, but I'm intrigued by this one. It does hot and iced coffee, which is pretty amazing.

14. Steamer - Ironing is so last century, am I right?

15 Backseat Car Organizer - Moms in general tend to spend a lot of time carting their littles around, and if your kid is anything like mine, the backseat can quickly turn into a nightmare. This over-the-seat organizer can help with some of that, which is why it's on my personal wish list this year (Again. Seriously, if I don't get one, I'll buy it myself.).
