Best Gift Ideas for Mom Entrepreneurs on Mother’s Day

Created by Ali Coşkunfrom the Noun Project

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be a fun idea to put together a list of gift ideas for mom entrepreneurs. If you’re anything like my husband, you might have NO idea what to get for the work at home moms in your life. Or, maybe you’re a work at home mom and don’t know what to say when they ask, “what do you want for Mother’s Day?”. Don’t worry, I got you! I’ve put together a list on Amazon for you, but, here are some of my favorites!

Best Gift Ideas for Mom Entrepreneurs

For Moms who need help around the house:

The iRobot Roomba J5

This is what I got for my early Mother’s Day gift this year, and let me tell you – this is the BEST gift I have ever gotten. I know ‘they’ say not to get mom’s something to clean the house for any sort of holiday, but, this is the exception to that rule. It literally cleans my house for me, so I can focus on work, make dinner, go play football outside with Noah or do whatever I want to do. It’s amazing, and every working mom should have a Roomba in her life.

The Shark Hydrovac Cordless Vacuum and Mop

Again, usually household cleaning items are a major no-no for gifts, but this is another one I cannot live without. With dogs and kids, my tile floors are constantly dirty and this thing is AWESOME for keeping floors clean. Spill something? Not only does it vacuum up messes, but it also cleans the floor without leaving gross, sticky residue. And even better? It cleans itself. Can we all say hallelujah????

Best Gifts for Mom Photographers

Phone Tripod for Video Recording and Travel Photography

As photographers, we are always looking for new ways to take photos. Not only that, for us to actually be in the photos! And getting behind the scenes content is not always easy, especially if we don’t have assistants to help us. This lightweight tripod is PERFECT for taking behind the scenes videos, as well as making TikToks and reels!

Coiro Leather Dual-Camera Harness

This dual-camera harness has SAVED my neck and back, especially on long wedding days.

Stanley Insulated Stainless Steel Tumbler

I know, I know – Stanley’s are basic. But you know what? They still make for awesome gifts, encouraging us to drink more water! Especially when we’re out on location for a session or at a wedding, it’s super important for mom bosses to stay hydrated.

Bath Bombs for Aching Muscles

After 14 years of photographing weddings, I can tell you: ain’t no hangover like a post-wedding hangover for a photographer. Everything just aches, from head to toe. Gift her some muscle relief goodies for the day after weddings, like these bath bombs!


Best Gifts for Mom’s Office

Stationary: The gift that keeps giving! Nearly every single woman I know loves stationary supplies, some ideas could be:

Cute Pens

Pretty Notebooks

Digital Picture Frame

Synology NAS System

Mom entrepreneurs, especially us photographers, need to backup our work, important documents, personal data and more. This year I learned about NAS systems (“network attached storage”), and it’s been such a game changer. It’s an additional backup method for everything we do for work, since hard drives can fail, break or get lost. This is the exact NAS system that I use, and giving mom peace of mind is one of the best gifts you could ever get for her!

Candles for Mom Bosses

Who doesn’t love yummy smelling candles?? I love to light them while I’m working – and they’re even better if they have an inspirational phrase, or something funny!

NextMug – Temperature Controlled, Self-Heating Coffee Mug

Cups of coffee (or tea) never seem to be finished while still hot, but an always hot coffee mug? Yes, please!


Gift Card Ideas for the Mom Entrepreneur

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something more simple – you can’t go wrong with gift cards!

  • Uber Eats
  • DoorDash
  • Audible Credits
  • Her Favorite Restaurant
  • Her Favorite Coffee Shop, like Starbucks or Dutch Bros

Gift Certificate Ideas for the Mom Entrepreneur

Even better? Support a local business and get her a gift certificate!

  • Mani/Pedi
  • Spa Day
  • Massage
  • Family Session
