Gifts Under $25 That are For Your Mom Tribe

Gifts Under $25 That are For Your Mom Tribe

The holidays are much different when you are a mom and most of your focus goes to your children. Do not get me wrong, even though things probably get a little hectic, I love seeing the look on my son’s face Christmas morning, it’s just so magical and makes it all worth it.

I am sure you also have other family members to buy gifts for, but what about your tribe? The moms who have been there for you since the beginning? The ones you can cry to and vent to. I am also not talking about a friend who lives down the block, this mama can be a friend you met through Instagram or a Mom’s Facebook Group. Growing your mom tribe happens in many ways, and I am here to help you find that perfect (and affordable) gift for your persons.

I have been a part of a few gift swaps over the years on Instagram and they are so much fun! We set a price limit and give a little description about ourselves. Here is a list of gifts you can find for under twenty-five dollars that are perfect for you mama friends!

  • For the Moms Who Can’t Party Like They Used To

Does your friend crave the taste of wine but dread the morning hangovers? Would she rather put the kids to bed and relax on the couch with a calming cup of tea than go out to a club?

9 Must Have Products All Working Moms Should Be Using

9 Must Have Products All Working Moms Should Be Using

This December will be one year at my current job. That means one year of taking public transportation and learning a new part of a city I was not familiar with. One year of working in a cubicle instead of spending the last six years in my own office where I got to come and go as I pleased, windows to look out of and turned the lights off so I didn’t get such horrible headaches from those fluorescent lights!

This past year I have been through many transitions with this new career path, and although I am still learning and I adjusting I thought I would share some essential things every working mom should have. It doesn’t matter if you have a desk job or spend all day on your feet, if you drive to work or take the bus, I hope these essentials will help make your days go by a little easier!

Wireless Earbuds

I have these headphones and they are great! They fit well and the sound is amazing. These are a fraction of the cost of apple ear pods and are a great quality They both have microphones in them so if a call comes in you can talk right into them. You don’t have to wear both buds if you don’t want to, you can wear one at a time. It only takes about 2 hours to charge and 4 hours of continuous use!

Libby App

We all get breaks at work, so I suggest you take this time to read or listen to an audio book! If you have a public library card just plug your ID number into the app and you will have access to your local public library! You will never want to buy another book again when you see how easy it is to borrow a book on this app!

Fitbit Versa Lite

No matter if you sit a lot during the day or are on your feet all day, the Fitbit will encourage to keep you moving and applaud you for all the steps you have done! I love how light it is compared to other smart watches. I stay motivated and gets me out of my chair throughout the day!

Reusable Straws

You never know when you are going to need an iced coffee break, or you go out to lunch with coworkers. Be prepared with these adorable reusable straws. They come in a pouch and with a cleaner and you choose your preference, straight, bent, short or long!


There is nothing worse than getting out of your car or waiting for the bus and realizing you don’t have your umbrella. This little guy fits perfectly in your bag and comes with a case, so everything stays dry.

Laptop Bag with Shoe Compartment

I wasn’t going to add a laptop bag but after I dropped my laptop last week getting off the bus, I thought it might be a good idea. I love having a backpack with a show compartment for a few reasons. I like to take walks during my breaks so I will bring sneakers with me or when it snows, I don’t want to have to wear my snow boots all day. I also workout sometimes after work so I will pack my workout clothes and sneakers with me, so I do not need to stop home. This backpack has it all. It has a ton of compartments and even a USB charging port for your phone.

30 oz Double Wall Tumbler

Whether you need an iced coffee or some hot tea, this large double wall tumbler is for you! Pick your saying and the color that fits your lifestyle because you will always need some all-day fuel. This tumbler will keep your drink hot or cold for hours!

Electric Heating Lunch Box

Why use the community microwave and have your lunch stink of leftover tuna casserole when you can have your own lunchbox that heats up your lunch? I don’t know about you, but I stay away from the microwave at work. No one ever cleans it and it stinks! This lunch box is great especially if don’t have anywhere to beat your lunch up and it is also less prep for me at home!

Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Do you stare at a computer screen all day? If so these are for you! These glasses relieve our eye fatigue especially when watching or looking at other screens. They help block out harmful rays the tint is enough for you not to notice a thing! If you already have prescription glasses, be sure to check and see if you can get this feature added to your new prescription glasses!

Listen Mamas, I know the guilt that surrounds us as working mothers and I constantly feel it. I don’t know how to fix it, but if there are things that can make our days go by a little more smooth at work, I am going to share it so maybe it will help you!

Let me know what your must haves are at work, I would love to hear them!

And if no one told you today, you are doing an amazing job, Mama.
