1. Planner and Planner Accessories
Not all, but lots of homeschool moms use planners. In fact, there have been times that I have used multiple planners at one time! The best part is, you’ve got options. You can pick up a pretty planner at just about any store or you could give your favorite homeschool mom an Etsy gift card and let her purchase a digital planner online.
And if they already have a planner, you can get your favorite homeschool mom some fun planner accessories like: stickers, clips, inserts, washi tape, sticky notes, highlighters, or even some fine-line colored pens.
Journals are also another great homeschool mom gift. Not only can be they be used for writing but also for drawing as well. They can also be gifted with pens and other accessories.
Look for a journal or notebook to give that is unique or speaks to the style of the recipient. For example, I love leather journals or ones with vintage vibes. Think about what your person thinks might be beautiful and go from there.
3. Gift Cards
While gift cards sometimes get a bad rap for being the easy way out of gift-giving, they really can be a practical and heartfelt homeschool mom gift. Especially if the gift card is to a place that they frequent or to a place they really enjoy.
Tip: Instead of thinking big box stores, think of unique places they might be delightfully surprised to receive a gift card too, perhaps a new hole-in-the-wall restaurant or a small boutique downtown.
Every homeschool mom could use a laminator! This is such an affordable and useful gift that I have used a hundred times over. P.S. Don’t forget to get the thermal laminating pouches that go with it.
5. Books About Homeschooling
Another one of the best homeschool mom gifts is get her books about homeschooling. As homeschool moms we are interested in growing and learning how we can improve on what we are doing.
Reading about homeschooling can be inspiring and encouraging especially for new homeschool families. Be sure to check out this huge list of homeschool books to get you started!
6. Cute Bags or Totes
Get a cute new bag or tote for your homeschool mom! These are great for hauling library books and lunches and can be used to go along with just about any of your homeschool field trips ideas.
Once again, consider your person’s style and taste when choosing the right tote.
7. Coffee and Coffee Accessories
Coming from an avid coffee drinker, you can’t go wrong with coffee! Bags of fragrant grounds or whole coffee beans makes my homeschool heart flutter.
And if you want to go the extra mile for your coffee loving homeschool mom, you can get them a new fancy coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, a milk frother, or a new mug. (Affiliate links)
8. Large Map or Globe
If your homeschool mom is in need of a large map or globe, perhaps now is the time to splurge and get a good one. There are tons of great options and it is something that will be used frequently throughout their homeschool mom career.
9. Storage Bins and Baskets
Coming from someone who is constantly working on organizing our small-space homeschool I find that I am always on the look out for practical homeschool storage ideas.
These homeschool storage ideas can include baskets, bins, shelving, art carts, caddys, and more! So, if your person is trying to get organized perhaps this will be one of the best homeschool mom gifts you can give.
10. Cricut Cutting Machine
A Cricut machine can do so many different things. From cutting paper and wood to making vinyl decals and print-and-cut labels, this machine is a beast.
I would recommend this gift for a really creative and crafty person. I have the Cricut Maker model and I use it all of the time (Affiliate link).
11. Large Magnetic Calendar
Going along with planning and staying organized, a large magnetic calendar (#ad) for the fridge can be a great gift idea to help keep your family’s schedule visible for every one to see.
We keep one on our fridge and it has been a life saver for our family scheduling.
12. New Tablet or Computer
Between record keeping, grading, audio books, and storing digital printables, having a nice tablet or computer to work on is very handy for a homeschool mom. Trust me, we use ours every day!
If you are wondering what we use on a daily basis, we have a Mac Book Pro computer and an iPad Pro 12in. (Amazon affiliate links)
13. Heavy Duty Printer
Another gift that every homeschool mom could use is a heavy duty printer. I recommend to looking for a printer that has these qualities: copy, scan, double sided, laser, as well as color printing.
Our first few years of homeschool, we used a basic inkjet printer and then we upgrade to a large heavy duty printer model and its done very well for us.
14. A New Convenient Kitchen Appliance
All Homeschool moms are also wondering what to make for dinner and how fast they can get it made. Perhaps a new convenient kitchen appliance would be the gift that would make her day.
Perhaps an Instant Pot or an Air fryer?
15. Season Passes or Family Memberships
If your family enjoys sports or likes to visit certain places, perhaps season passes to your favorite games or memberships to your local zoo or aquarium might be a nice homeschool mom gift idea.
Another homeschool mom gift idea is to get her a subscription to her favorite magazine or to an educational box she can do with the kids each month.
17. Science kits to Try with the Kids
If science is a big deal in your house, why not get a new science kit you can do together. You can raise butterflies, start an ant farm, or look at constellations through the lens of a new astronomical telescope.
Sometimes we want to try new experiments but we just don’t want to splurge to get them, so why not give them as a gift? Not only will mom enjoy it, but all the kids as well!
18. Essential Oil Diffuser
A lot of women, including homeschool moms, use essential oils to keep their spaces smelling lovely as well as help to keep their minds relaxed and focused for learning.
Try finding an essential oil diffuser that lasts more than six hours and perhaps pair it with a few oils like lavender, eucalyptus, or lemon. (Affiliate links)
19. Personal Hobby or Craft Supplies
For the crafty homeschool mom get her some craft supplies or things that she needs to continue in her personal hobby.
Does she enjoy sewing? If so, get some new fabric, a cutting mat, or binding clips. Does she enjoy painting? If so, get her some new paint brushes, canvases, or art smock. (affiliate links)
20. Beautiful Picture Books
If your homeschool mom is obsessed with picture books (like I am), a basket full of illustrated kids books is just about as exciting as it comes!

21. Nature Study Books
Exploring nature is such a huge part of homeschool and having a handful of nature study books on the shelf is considered an invaluable resource.

22. Fitness Equipment for Homeschool Mom Gifts
Other homeschool mom gifts can include fitness equipment like free weights, elliptical machine, jump rope, yoga mat, or even a pair of new running shoes.
23. Homeschool Decor
Some of the best homeschool mom gifts can also include homeschool decor. These homeschool decor gift ideas can include but are not limited to: a large chalk board, nature posters, famous art prints, custom wall art, house plants, rugs, lighting and more!
24. Clothes and Jewelry
And don’t forget the homeschool mom gifts that make her feel comfortable and beautiful. These gift ideas can include: house slippers, personalized jewelry, oversized sweater, or a comfy pair of leggings.
25. A Night Out
Sometimes the most thoughtful and kind gift can be an invitation to a night out. Maybe that looks like a dinner date with a spouse or a guilt-free night off where mom can go out for a little quiet browsing or visit with a sister or friend.
