Gifts for Homeschooling Moms

Ready to shop for a gift for a special homeschool mom? We have a lot of choices below and know you are going to find something she will love.

Some of the gifts are practical and will help her in her homeschool, others are relaxing and fun. Don’t shy away from the practical. Homeschooling moms are usually pretty darn practical and all of the choices I added actually save her time. That is time she can spend enjoy her family or taking a break for herself.

Combining both together is a great idea as well. Grab a practical gift and pair it with one that is enjoyable.

I hope you find just what you are looking for!

Essential Gifts for Homeschooling Moms

There are some things all homeschool moms need to have in their homes. They make life easier and once mom has them, she doesn’t know how she got along without them!

Fellowes Binding Machine Star+ Comb Binding (5006501)This Awesome Binding Machine is a Dream Machine

Our first pick is a binding machine.

Many homeschooling moms have a laminator. If they don’t, you need to get them one! (see below)

However, not very many moms have this useful tool. A binding machine can make all the difference when trying to tackle the ever growing stack of paper that she deals with. It can also make collecting special papers she wants to keep much easier.

This one is the best of the best. It is highly rated and works great and it is inexpensive as well.


Here are three more essentials that you don’t want a homeschooling mom to be without.

  • The laminator shown below and is tops! It heats up fast and never jams.  One super use is to laminate printables so they can be used again and again.
  • This DYMO Label Maker is easy to use, has actual keys for typing and creates labels that will help her get orgnanized. Surprisingly inexpensive!
  • The trimmer shown below is both pretty and oh so useful. I have one and it works super well. What I like about it is that it is big enough to cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper but small enough to be portable. Plus it has a slide blade so you don’t have to worry about little fingers getting cut!

Kitchen Gifts for Homeschooling Moms

A kitchen appliance you say? Are you sure? Oh yes! I am very sure. The kitchen gifts below will save her so much time! Saving her time in the kitchen lets her spend more time with the kids.

Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker

Let me just say that Instant Pot is pure gold.

I was following along in a conversation among homeschool moms and they were all raving about the Instant Pot. This is not like  grandma’s pressure cooker!

If she forgot to thaw out meat for dinner (hey, it happens) – no problem! This machine has her covered. Toss frozen meat into the cooker and in no time flat you have dinner ready to serve.

I suggest the 7-in-one as the best choice. It does everything you can imagine and even makes yogurt. Go check out this wonderful device now.

Here are three more kitchen items that will save her time and make her day. Honestly, I seriously use all of these gift choices on a very regular basis.

  • The Smart Stick is so neat. It is a blender on a stick. She can use this for smoothies and other drinks, soups, batters, dressings, purees, and more. Blending right in the bowl saves time and clean-up is a cinch. Get this brand as it is highly rated and high powered.
  • I got this pastry mat for Christmas one year from my parents and wow! I do not know how I rolled out cookies and made dough without this. The mat sticks to the counter so it doesn’t slip around and nothing sticks to it. I can roll out a pie crust in no time flat and it comes off super easy. This little gem made clean-up so much easier and saved me time.
  • Give her old hand mixer a rest. Look, sometimes you have to spring for a decent machine.  I have the Artisan Kitchenaid Stand Mixer (which is another thing I would never be without) and since buying that I am convinced that Kitchenaid makes the best mixers ever. This hand mixer comes in many different colors and has the power needed to do the job! BTW it isn’t very expensive at all!

Book Related Gifts for Homeschooling Moms

It is a fact that homeschoolers love books. I guarantee homeschooling moms will love these bookish gifts!

Totes with literary and writing references are amusing and will be a hit on her next trip to the library or a homeschool meeting.

Click the pictures to go to the individual totes or use the link above to go to all of the literary tote selections. There are other neat choices such as Hamlet, children’s literature book totes and more.

  • Magnetic Bookmark Arrows! Who knew? For a long time I had no idea they made these but they are super handy and the book lovin’ homeschoolers I know have several packages.
  • Homeschoolers have books. Lots and lots of books. Keeping track of who you lent them to gets a bit easier with these wonderful old-school bookplates. Pop one in a book so everyone will know who to return it to.
  • Seriously excellent book light. Not all book lights are created equal I can tell you that. You will not go wrong buying her this one. Let her catch a bit of reading before going to bed at night. This is also great for grabbing when you need to check on the kids and don’t want to turn on the overhead lights.

Wiztem Jasmine Book Stand Beautiful Book Stand

This book stand makes a beautiful gift, and you will be surprised at how low the price is.

Its surface is large so it easily holds many different sizes of books, including cookbooks, picture books, music books and more.

What I personally love about it is being able to set it up with the pages you want to reference while teaching without having to struggle to keep the book open to that page. It is a great teaching helper.

It is also adjustable by both height and degree. She will love it!


One book-related gift she will absolutely love is Kindle Unlimited. Homeschoolers love their books to be unlimited!

This program gives her access to over 1 million titles, thousands of audiobooks, and current magazines too! She can read on any device (she doesn’t have to own a Kindle) with the Kindle app (which is totally free.)

This is simply a great gift for homeschooling moms. Not only can she choose from so many books and audio options for herself, she can have access to a lot of great kids books too. With this program you can give her a free month and pay ahead for her subscription as well.

OR go with Audible instead.

With an audible subscription she gets one audio book a month. I’m sharing the link that will give her 2 free audio books (nice, right?!) when you subscribe.

Notebooks and Journals for Homeschool Moms

When you have a busy homeschooling mom to buy for, you have to think about what they do all day.Every single homeschool mom I know makes lists. Lots of lists!

Which notebook to get depends on what they do regularly.

If notebooks are not her thing, or you think they are a touch too practical, these stylish journals are sure to be a hit.

Coloring Gifts for Homeschooling Moms

I got gel pens for Christmas and I have to say I am in love with them. I like to color-code things and my husband did an awesome job with this gift idea which I seriously use all the time. Gel pens for the win!

I am sharing a couple of other top choices as well. I use them on my calendar for keeping track of upcoming events, as well as doing a bit of coloring in my favorite coloring books for grown-ups (see the next section below!)

I had no idea color coding would help me be more organized but it did. I also had no idea I would love them so much, but again, I did. I use them all the time!

Capture the Memories Gift for Homeschooling Moms

If you can’t quite swing getting her a higher end camera that any homeschool mom would drool over, no worries.

You can get a totally awesome and fun camera that she will really like to use.

The reason this is so great is that she will actually print out the photos instead of letting them add up on her phone. It comes in a variety of colors too. She won’t miss any shots of her homeschool life with this Instax Mini 9! (The kids will love it too!)
