The Best Gifts For Single Moms

When you’re a mom, it’s often rare to receive gifts. If anything, we usually feel as if we are the ones giving and not receiving. But that’s okay and natural. But what about when it comes to the best gifts for single moms? Whether you’re a single mother yourself or you have a loved one in your life who is, there are some ideal gifts for single moms which can speak straight to their heart and make them feel ultimately appreciated.

Here’s our curated list of the best gifts for single moms this Christmas season…

Hands-down, a spa day!

Find me one woman out there who doesn’t like to feel pampered every once and a while…don’t worry, I’ll wait! Now put yourself in the shoes of a hard-working single mama who has to do it all and barely gets a second for herself. For this, and the obvious reasons, a spa day is a wonderful treat that any single mom out there would greatly appreciate.

One thought for anyone considering this idea: single mamas struggle to find quality child care. That is one reason that a gift like a ‘spa day’ is such a treat…so be sure to offer to assist with childcare or that it is feasible for the mom you are considering this gift for. Also, make sure the spa is local AND accessible–Spa Finder offers gift cards that allow your recipient to buy products rather than make a spa appointment (a really great option for a busy single mom)!

Custom jewelry

Most single mamas out there are proud mama bears of their cubs, so why not gift them with a custom memento in the form of jewelry to remind them of their precious little ones. Whether it’s a ring, earrings, or even a necklace, there are so many custom jewelry options to choose from that can remind her of her little ones.

A wine subscription box

I don’t know about you, but who doesn’t love a glass of vino after a long ass day? Pretty much every mama out there—especially ones who are braving parenting solo. If you have a special gal in your life who is a single mom, treat her to a wine subscription box (there are so many to choose from, like or Dry Farm Wines) to spoil her in a way you know she’ll love and appreciate.

Amazon gift card

Gone are the days when gift cards were viewed as tacky, and an Amazon gift card is a great choice for a single mom because she can purchase almost anything with it. And the best part is that she won’t even have to leave her house to use it or accept the gifts she chooses once they arrive on her doorstep.

An Audible subscription

Many single moms don’t have a lot of free time on their hands to read—and once they sit down to read they often fall asleep because they’re so exhausted at the end of the day. If you want to treat the single mama in your life with a gift that keeps on giving and can expand their mind, try gifting them an Audible subscription. That way, they can listen to audiobooks when they’re on the go.

Offer to watch the kids so she can rest, have a night out, or some time to herself

This one might sound old-fashioned like those cutesy coupon books we used to make for our loved ones as kids, but the thought of just gifting your time so she can have some time to herself speaks volumes. Most single moms could use a helping hand or some time to unwind away from their home and their children. Offer to watch the littles when it’s convenient for her so that she can have some time to just be her and carefree.
