Needing a great gift idea for the homeschool mom in your life?
You are probably frustrated because she says things like, “Oh, I don’t need anything,” whether it is Christmas, her birthday, anniversary, or Mother’s Day.
She spends her time dreaming about shiny curriculum, color-coordinated bins to organize school supplies, and all the books.
All of them.
She doesn’t spend much time thinking or shopping for herself. Sound about right?
Fear not! I have assembled a list of the best gifts for the Homeschooling Mom!
Scroll through to find the thoughtful gifts, unique gifts, and great ideas you’re looking for!

Tech Gifts for the Homeschool Mom
1. Audio Books
It is likely that the homeschool mom has many books in her life that *wants* to read…but she doesn’t have the energy at the end of the day.
Gifting her an audible.com subscription is a great gift to feed her brain while she’s teaching the brains of her kids.
Find out about subscription plans here.
2. Bluetooth headphones
Homeschool moms need Bluetooth headphones (durable ones) to listen to those audio books, podcasts that they have been meaning to get to, and phone calls that need to happen.
It’s not as cute as a pair of AirPods, but these around-the-neck Bluetooth headphones from Beats make a lot of sense for her while she is spinning plates all around the house.
3. Epson EcoTank Printer
If your homeschool does any number of printing (and she probably does), the Epson EcoTank Printer is probably on her wish list.
She will no longer need to worry about running out of cartridges because the liquid ink bottles hold dozens of cartridges worth of ink!
Good for the environment and good for her homeschool!
4. Amazon Alexa Products
The Echo Dot is very affordable and has SO many functions inside the homeschool setting.
We use it for background music, a timer, to quickly help with questions, and even to help my kids with spelling.
Hop on over to Amazon to see the latest models!
5. Back Massager
The homeschool mom in your life most likely doesn’t have time to go get massages…but man she’s never needed one more in her life.
I love these newer back massagers that you use your arms to change the pressure and intensity.
The perfect gift for the homeschool mom in your life who needs to put her feet up at the end of the day and relax.
6. Cell Phone Stand With Speakers
A homeschool mom’s cell phone can be used for so many things throughout the day.
I love this cell phone stand with speakers so little hands don’t have to be fighting over “holding” the phone and the volume can be turned up so everyone can hear clearly.
This will be a unique and appreciated gift for the homeschool mom in your life.
7. Ring Video Doorbell
Everyone jumps and runs to see who it is!
Your homeschool mom would love a gift of a ring video doorbell to help her know if it’s just the mailman dropping a package off, the neighbor coming for a cup of a sugar, kids coming to play, or a creepy sales guy.
8. Cell Phone Battery Pack
Her kids will drain her battery all day and it will inevitably be dying at the most inconvenient moment imaginable.
Buy her this super wise tech gift and tell her to pop it into her purse for safekeeping.
9. Towel Warmer
Homeschool moms are not known for meeting up at the spa, but it will feel like it every morning when she steps out of the shower with one of these towel warmers!
In fact, she can also pop her robe, jammies, or favorite yoga pants in during the chillier time of year!
It will quickly become one of her favorite things!
Check out my favorite towel warmer here.
10. QR Code Artwork That Plays Your Choice of Song
This high-tech, personalized artwork is such a fun gift and the perfect addition to your homeschool mom’s classroom!
When she scans the QR code on the painting with her phone, it will take her to the song of your choice.
Maybe it is a faith-filled song that expresses how you see her as a homeschool mom, or an upbeat, encouraging song like Katy Perry’s “Roar!” to get her pumped up for the day!
Find out more about this super unique and sentimental gift here.
Kitchen Gifts for the Homeschool Mom
Homeschooling is a lifestyle…and the homeschool mom in your life likely does a lot of food prep, snack making, and meals on the go for her homeschool.
The below gifts will help her do all the kitchen things…with flair!
1. Breakfast Sandwich Maker
I imagine even the older kids could be taught how to make themselves a hearty breakfast sandwich.
One less thing for mom to do!
2. Ember Mug
This smart mug will keep her hot beverage at choice at whatever temperature she sets it too with her phone!
No mugs forgotten in the microwave!
Check out different sizes and colors of ember mugs here.
3. Keurig + Fancy K-Cups
I feel so sorry for my younger self who wasted so many minutes of her life waiting for an entire pot of coffee to brew. Boo!
The homeschool mom in your life needs hot coffee and fast!
Get her a Keruig, but for this gift, skip Amazon and head to Walmart. They have much more competitive (and reasonable) pricing.
Does she already have a Keurig? Spoil her with an assortment of fancy coffees!
4. Smart Water Bottle
She knows she’s not getting enough water…but just can’t remember to drink it.
This smart water bottle actually tracks her water intake and even starts to glow when she’s not on track for the day’s goal!
5. Instant Pot
Getting dinner on the table after an exhausting day of homeschooling, co-op, sports, lessons, and classes can feel almost impossible some nights.
An Instant Pot is a wonderful gift for the homeschool mom who wants to make dinner fast!
Check instant pot prices here.
6. Crock Pot
I would be lost without mine, and I often plan our busy nights around what I can put in a crockpot.
If your homeschool mom, doesn’t have one, definitely consider gifting her one!
Check out all the styles, colors, and sizes here.
7. Meal Subscription Box
This is definitely the way to spoil your homeschool mom.
If she is going through a rough patch.
If she has more than the usual load on her shoulders.
Consider gifting her a meal subscription kit for one month and you very well might reduce her to tears.
8. At Home Crustable Maker
How fun is this!
Way to make at home on the go lunches special…without the unhealthy things!

This handy machine can make everything from roasted veggies to juicy pork chops to doughnuts (I’ve seen it with my own eyes!).

Little hands can fill their cereal bowls without spilling it all over the floor.
It is the perfect addition to any kitchen counter.

Books For The Homeschool Mom
There are so many homeschool books and encouraging resources out there for homeschool moms. Be sure to gift her one of these outstanding books!

This book is a personal favorite of mine. It provides pages of book lists for ages birth to high school.
I use it to order high-quality, classic books from the library for my younger kids, and I have used it to find exciting (but appropriate) chapter book series for my older child.
This is a must for the homeschool mom that values reading.

4. Brave Learner
“Parents who are deeply invested in their children’s education can be hard on themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childhood chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards?
In this book, Julie Bogart distills decades of experience–homeschooling her five now grown children, developing curricula, and training homeschooling families around the world–to show parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they’re in elementary or high school.”
5. Teaching From Rest: A Homeschooler’s Guide to Teaching From Unshakable Peace
Teaching From Rest is another personal favorite of mine and a homeschool mom must have gift.
This gem of a book should be read and reread by homeschool moms every summer. It is so refreshing and life giving to the weary homeschool moms heart.
6. The Call Of The Wild + Free
“The Call of the Wild and Free offers advice, information, and positive encouragement for parents considering homeschooling, those currently in the trenches looking for inspiration, as well as parents, educators, and caregivers who want supplementary resources to enhance their kids’ traditional educations.”

8. The UnHurried Homeschooler
“Drawing on twenty years of homeschooling her eight children, Durenda Wilson gently reminds parents about the things that really matter, as she offers a clear portrait of what a life-giving home life can be during the homeschooling years. Reading The Unhurried Homeschooler is like having coffee with a trusted friend. You’ll be encouraged as you learn to do what God has put before you. This book will lighten your load while helping you learn how to raise life long learners and ENJOY the homeschool years with your kids.“
9. 5 Minute Devotionals For The Homeschool Mom
“Life as a homeschooling mom can be all-consuming, to say the least.

Let’s share this amazing journey together.”

There is a lot on the shoulders and mind of a homeschool mom, so anything that helps her sleep well will be one of the most useful gifts.

6. Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets will take her sleep another step further.
They have exploded on the market and have been given a lot of credit for helping people fall asleep quickly and soundly.
My kids call our own weighted blanket the “hug blanket” because it feels like someone is hugging you all night. I can personally attest that it helps me fall asleep and stay asleep.
7. Mini Standing Desk
Homeschooling can require more sitting than you might think. Lots of reading, grading papers, lesson planning, and more.
