5 Things Stay At Home Moms Want For Mother's Day That Aren't Gifts

I know I titled this post "5 Things Stay At Home Moms Really Want For Mother's Day," but I think the majority of these could apply to any mom! These are just things I, as a stay home mom, would really want for Mother's Day (most don't cost a dime!) and I think many stay at home moms would appreciate them as well because often the parent that stays home rarely gets a break from their daily duties.

1. Sleep


Let your wife or mom sleep in! Serve her breakfast in bed so she doesn't have to get up, but make sure she's awake first! Moms hardly ever get to sleep in and often are up late as those few hours after the kid is asleep are the only hours we really get to ourselves.

If you have a newborn, offer to get up in the middle of the night to check on the baby instead so she can sleep, that is if you aren't exclusively breastfeeding.

You can also offer her some quiet time in the middle of the day to take a much-needed nap!

2. A Clean House


Clean the house for her or pay someone else to come clean. If you have older kids, you could even get them to help out! If you do hire a maid, make sure they come at a time your wife/mom is not home. You could send her out for a spa day as an added bonus!

3. An Uninterrupted Bath


This is an easy one, just let your mom or wife have 1-2 hours to herself to take a nice long, relaxing bubble bath (Bath &Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Eucalyptus Spearmint Foam Bath is my favorite). No interruptions!

I think any stay at home mom would appreciate this as it can be hard to even get 5 minutes for a quick shower! You could even decorate the room with candles and/or get rose petals to sprinkle in the tub. You could also buy a nice relaxing CD she could listen to while she's in the bath or buy that book she's been wanting to read and now has some time to!

4. Cook Dinner


Stay at home moms are often the meal preppers, so give her the night off! Cook her a meal for a change, but make sure you practice because the last thing she wants is something burned. You could also order food, but do avoid pizza unless that just happens to be the food she loves!

5. Take The Kids Out or Watch The Kids


Take the kids to the park, or the zoo, or maybe brave the store and do grocery shopping. Let mom have the house to herself for once so she can do whatever she wants. She would appreciate the quiet time to read, watch Netflix, work on a craft or hobby, etc.

Or maybe your mom would prefer to get out of the house and have some alone time at the mall, or at the spa, so instead, you could watch the kids while she goes out.

  2. I love all of these ideas! Especially number 5. I have things around the house I would like to get accomplished and it is just impossible with a three year old who wants to help with every project. The gift of a clean house is also very appreciated.
