Shopping for the perfect gift can be stressful and is another stress to add to your never-ending to-do list. But as a homeschooling mompreneur with an online business, I know a thing or two about delegating and getting things done. Here’s a gift guide of my favorite things for the mompreneur on your list.
Shopping is one of those things that has become so much easier with the help of my friend – Amazon Prime. If you are a mom with mom friends and you need gifts your Mom, Mom-in-Law, Bestie, Sister-in-Law, etc. etc. Do you see the trend? You need gifts for stressed-out Moms because face it, we’re taking care of everyone else and ignore our needs. Help a gal out and help her, help herself. Self-care is this year’s mantra!
Grab your drink of choice and get shopping! And pick something nice for yourself. 🙂
GIVE THE GIFT OF RELAXATION
I love the wood grain/zen feel of this diffuser! I have one in our family room and my office since it looks prettier. Once you start using diffusers, you won’t stop! The air is purified, smells great and is so much healthier than burning candles. (I never burned candles for almost 9 years while my kids were growing up for fear of knocking it over and starting a fire).
This diffuser holds up to 300ml of water and runs 4 – 10 hours. It also has automatic power off when water used up as a safety feature. Pop in some Peppermint essential oil to brighten those eyes before working or to ward off the 4 pm slump.
And to complete the gift of relaxation, you need essential oils! The Introductory Kit includes a 5 mL bottle of dōTERRA’s Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint essential oils. Also included is suggested uses of the oils so you can immediately experience the life-changing benefits of essential oils! You can also message me when you purchase so I can send you my 99 Ways to Use Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint guide so you can really explore what oils can do, from cleaning & cooking to getting rid of headaches and focusing on the work at hand.
This comes highly recommended in Tim Ferris’ book Tools of Titans and if Titans can use it, think of what it can do for a mompreneur! 😉 For back pain sufferers like myself, I am giving this one a try. It promises IMMEDIATE back and neck pain relief in as little as 20 minutes per day. Time to perfect the Pomodoro technique. I often don’t stop to take breaks and this would be perfect for break time.
This mat EFFECTIVELY induces a state of complete relaxation while reducing aches, pain, stress, and tension. RELIEVES not only back, neck, shoulder, and sciatic pain whether mild or chronic, but also relieves headaches. OTHER BENEFITS include improved sleep, circulation, and mood as well as an increase in energy levels. Between this mat and the diffuser/essential oil kit combination, the mompreneur on your list should be a new person after just 20 minutes!
While sitting at my desk for long hours, my legs and feet start to ache. This foot massager is designed to soothe foot/heel pain. It refreshes tired, sore, achy feet and promotes better blood flow to enhance overall health. I don’t have one yet, but it’s on my wish list. I can see myself with this under my desk and using it while talking to clients.
Give the Gift of Time
I love giving and receiving Amazon gift cards. I offer them as referral gifts to my biz besties and clients! Amazon has made it so easy to shop at home. It’s is a huge time saver when you have little kids and can’t run to the store. And not only does it save time, but you can also buy yourself exactly what YOU want! No running to the store to return something. Plus you can give them to everyone on your list. You can send them via email to your friends or family far away, or they can send you the cards in a cute decorated box which saves you time from wrapping. It’s the perfect gift all the way around! And you can give them all year round too.
Mompreneurs can always use a second pair of hands to help clear off the to-do list. I can help schedule your Pinterest pins using Tailwind, make graphics, or build your opt-in freebie and create the email sequence automation! Imagine what it would be like to have just 5 or even 10 hours free from the mundane tasks so you can concentrate on the big things!
Give the Gift of the Right Tools
Being an online entrepreneur has its advantages but being on a computer a long time can lead to eye strain, tired eyes, headaches, and migraines. Blue light blocking glasses can help. While I already wear glasses, I have a special pair of prescription blue blocker glasses. A friend of mine highly recommends these below that come with no magnification if you don’t need it or if you do, comes in a variety of strengths. These are stylish and also get great reviews.
Trying to do your job without the right tools is frustrating and time-consuming. One of the basic tools every mompreneur needs a Universal 12″ Flexible Cell Phone Tripod. This is perfect for doing Facebook lives or Skype calls with clients. No more propping your phone up on a stack of books!
If you are going to get serious about batching videos, you need to up your game with this much taller tripod! I set up my “filming studio” in an extra room in our house, but this does come with a case so you can easily fold it up and put it in your closet.
If you will be using it with your cell phone as I do, you need to get the Universal Smartphone Tripod Adapter Cell Phone Holder Mount Adapter that will hold your phone in place. It just screws into the tripod.
And I got this Bluetooth Remote Control, Camera Shutter with Bluetooth Wireless Technology. It’s compatible with Android or iOS so you can start and stop your recording or take selfies for those social media posts!
If you don’t have the pretty office backdrop 😉 or in my case blue walls, you will find that an inexpensive backdrop does wonders and there are a lot to choose from. If you want a behind the scenes peek at how I have it set up, you can watch my video as I give the tour of our home office. I like this one because it is tall enough for me to stand and take some selfie pics too. There are different sizes to choose from and don’t forget to order the Background Stand Backdrop Support System Kit with Carry Bag like I did! I currently have it being held up by push pins going directly into the wall! Oops!
As a mompreneur myself, I cannot get enough headphones. I tend to alternate between earbuds and over the ear headphones depending on what I need them for. Plus I have been known to lose a pair of earbuds behind. 🙁 These have silicone earbuds for a secure, comfortable fit. I like these for calls with clients and for throwing into my purse.
I love these when I want some peace and quiet. These over the ear headphones block out the world so they are good for work and for relaxation. My kids all have a pair too and they last a long time through being tossed here and there!
If your favorite mompreneur is a smoothie drinker like myself, she may appreciate the:
It blends and chops and is pretty quiet. I use the small bowl for smoothies and sometimes use the larger pitcher for blending soup. I bought it after my Magic Bullet died after 2 years. This thing has a much stronger engine, is quieter, and it can double duty as a food processor.
I have two things with me at my desk, a water bottle and coffee at all times. I get too involved with work or on the phone and then the coffee ends up cold or the water warm. Not anymore.
I love this one for coffee. Since I am an essential oil user I only use stainless steel and love that it includes a stainless steel straw for when I want to add a drop or two of lemon oil in my tea. And it’s insulated so it stays hot for hours. No more microwaving for me!
Give the Gift of Personal Enrichment
It is key to read, meditate, and focus on not only your business goals but your life goals. These are a couple of books that I bought this year that I highly recommend. Although I am a bit old school and prefer a good ol’ paper book, the reality is, I don’t have the time to read a lot. My solution and lifesaver has been Audible.
I listen to books while I am driving (make sure they are kid-appropriate, I made that mistake more than once!) or walking on the treadmill. They also have children’s books too so everyone can enjoy an Audible membership (especially on long car rides).
If I REALLY LIKED a book that I listened to, I buy it to highlight and take notes. So this is my shortlist of MUST reads for this past year.
Starting off with my #1 most recommended book. I found Brendon Burchard last year and am a total follower of all his stuff. I listen to his podcasts and watch his videos. If you haven’t heard of him, give him a listen starting with this one…
I was a follower of James Clear when he first started writing about habits and so when he finally came out with this, I knew it would be good. James gives actionable steps so that you can build long-term habits.
Last but not least in my gift guide. This is truly a life-changing book! Everyone needs to read the Miracle Morning. It has made me become so productive in the morning BEFORE my kids wake up. The Miracle Morning will transform your mornings, but this one for entrepreneurs is not just about waking up and being more productive – but also business advice. The Miracle Morning and TMM for Families are good ones to read and make gifts too.
This was just released in Sept 2019 and Marie Foleo drops some serious truth bombs in this book! Which is why I highly recommend this book. I was not a big fangirl or barely watched anything she has released, but I loved this book. It was relatable, had good action steps, and really eased my mind that everything has a solution. Just remember the mantra Maria’s whispering in your ear the next time you run into trouble, “Everything IS Figureutable!“
This book helps you to let go of the mom guilt and the pressure to be perfect, and just breathe. What if, in every decision you faced, you made the brave choice or took the bolder path? Would you be happier? Would you impact the world in the ways you dream you can? This book really makes you think about the choices and the consequences. I love this book because I want to raise me girls to be brave and take chances!
What are your go-to gift ideas for the various gift-giving holidays throughout the year?? I would love to hear what you would like to receive or the best gift you ever received. I am always looking for new book suggestions too! Leave your comments below.
