Mother’s Day Gift Guide for the Homeschool Mom

Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. The weather is usually nice. If you don’t have to cook a meal, even better! But Mother’s Day gifts are really a great part. Enjoy my Mother’s Day Gift Guide!

Of course, free time and kid-made gifts are at the top of the Mother’s Day gift guide. However, lovely surprises that honor mom’s hobbies and interests are also a nice touch.

1) Berry Buddy


How about something beautiful and useful for the kitchen. This “Berry Buddy” is designed to use with rinsing fruit before eating.

Handmade by Brian Kunkelmann, it is available from Uncommon Goods. The maker says “Each pot requires the same care and attention, whether you’re making one or a hundred…and I try to be conscious that this pot’s going to be part of someone’s life.”


2) Tea to Go


I am a huge fan of a nice cup of tea. This “Tea to Go” cup has a built-in glass filter for tea bags or loose-leaf tea.  I just got some Lavendar Earl Grey tea leaves and this cup would be perfect to use as I head out the door to co-op.



3) Birds of North America

Mothers-Day-birdsIf you have a bird spotter for a mom, you must see this giant poster featuring 740 hand-drawn illustrations of birds of North America. Designed by Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan in Brooklyn, New York, the image is 24″ H x 36″ W and would be a great addition to any classroom.



4) Birdie Yarn Bowl


If handicrafts is more your thing, this beautiful yarn bowl would be a thoughtful gift.  Handcrafted by New York artists Aaron Harrison, the bowl is so lovely and useful.


5) Customized Handwriting Bracelet


If you want to combine handmade and professional, this unique bracelet idea wins! Whether it is a child’s writing or another sentimental phrase, Etsy artist Kate Kim can create an enduring keepsake. See more options at her store.


6) Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys


Whether it is on a mug, a shirt or a sign– “Not my circus, Not my monkeys” is my hands-down favorite quote for getting through “mom life.”

7) Homeschool Life T-Shirt


This shirt about sums it up! There are a large variety of very cute and sassy homeschool mom shirts to check out on Etsy. 


8) AfterThoughts Resources




If you are buying for a homeschool mom, there are some wonderful resources in Brandy Vencel’s Afterthoughts shop including “Start Here: A Journey Through Charlotte Mason’s 20 Principles” and her study guide for Charlotte Mason’s volume “Home Education.”


9) Charlotte Mason Inspired Art


A Humble Place blog has several art prints and other items featuring Charlotte Mason’s quotes that are wonderful and I would love to have. The instant downloads are VERY affordable and the other items are too cute to pass up.

Need more ideas? Amazon has a “Mother’s Day Gift Shop” with many more ideas for every interest and price range.

Whether looking for personal gifts or for others, I hope my Mother’s Day Gift Guide has given you some thoughtful ideas.

  1. This is so amazing! I wish this had been written when I was growing up! My mom homeschooled me and my two brothers, and the most she ever got was a handful of weeds from the backyard and homemade cards *smh*
