If you know a busy mom that is hustling to run a business on the side, then you’re in the right place. I’ve put together a list of the best gifts that any busy mom with a side hustle would want so you can look pretty awesome when you get her of these.
These gifts are going to make her life easier by helping her get organized, have more energy, and tackle her business goals with more enthusiasm than ever.
And believe me, those are things she wants and is hyper focused on.
Commuting to work, working a full time job, being mom, taking care of household to-dos and being a wife already make a full plate.
Add onto that running a side hustle and you’ve got one busy mom.
But she’s got dreams. Ambitions. Big goals and plans to turn this side hustle into a business one day and change her life by owning her own business.
With these gifts, you’re going to help her get there. And she will love you for it.

Must-have gifts for the busy mom with a side hustle
Since you may want to get more than one item, below each item, I’ve given a suggested gift bundle idea to make it easier for you to make a great gift set.
These are in no particular order, so let’s get into it.
More likely than not, her side hustle is based on the internet in some way.
What better gift than a new laptop?
Her life is her computer and if she is running a side hustle, she probably wishes she had a new laptop but doesn’t want to spend the money right now to invest in one.
That’s where you come in.
Amazon has a large selection of laptops to choose from and they have the square warranty add-on option in case anything crazy might happen to her precious laptop (like her toddler pulling on the cord and it crashing to the ground…I wouldn’t know what that feels like or anything).
Gift Bundle Idea: Honestly, anything goes well with a new laptop. The Rocketbook Everlast with Frixion Pens would make this a nice bundle because she can jot down her ideas, scan them and work on them at her fingertips on her new laptop.
Checkout this list of my favorite entrepreneurial books here for some ideas.
You might think it’d be lame to get business books but believe me, if she is serious about her business, then she will love these books and how they are going to help her grow as an entrepreneur.
Keep in mind there is also the Kindle if holding a physical book is too 90s (or maybe too burdensome to carry around 21 books).
Gift bundle idea: Books go with anything. A nice gift bundle would be to pair books with a motivational coffee mug and a shirt to really get her in the spirit of crushing her goals. Bonus would be to add an awesome bookmark or 5. If she’s like me, she will read a bunch of different books simultaneously.
If time is of the essence, then audiobooks can be a great way to gain a ton of knowledge without having to take time to sit down and read.
She can listen in the car on her commute, at the gym, while doing dishes.
You get the idea.
I love Audible because listening to audiobooks is more than just listening to that juicy vampire novel.
There are TONS of business, personal and professional development books on there.
Every entrepreneur knows that developing a business mindset is going to be key to success as a business owner.
Getting this as a gift would be a wonderful way to help any mom with a business move in the right direction.
This thing is amazing!
It’s a notebook that you can write in, use an app to scan the page and send it to Dropbox or Google drive or wherever you want, and then erase the pages with WATER.
With this gift, she’ll never have to get another notebook again and all of those amazing business ideas can quickly be organized with the app.
This one is a no-brainer and it comes in pretty colors, too.
You can only use Frixion pens with it, but it comes with one black one.
Erasable pens that don’t suck and they come in fun colors.
These aren’t your crappy erasable pens like we used to have in the 90s.
These pens write smoothly and erase completely.
Having erasable pens is great for a busy mom because she can jot down ideas or move her schedule around without having a jumbled mess.
Erase it and rework it. I don’t go anywhere without these.
Ok you might be thinking “Seriously? Stationary??” but trust me!
As an entrepreneur, there are a million things she’s trying to remember to get done and having fun stationary to write it on will add a bit of fun to her day.
Those little words of inspiration can really give that extra boost she needs when the to-do list is longer than the page.
Every busy mom needs a planner to organize all of her to-dos, business ideas and make sure that she hits her big goals.
There are so many options on Amazon.
Check these busy mom planners out and see which one speaks to you.
One of my personal favorites is The Happy Planner.
Not only can you do daily tasks, but they have a variety of insert packs that you can buy to tailor the happy planner to your needs.
The other thing that the Happy Planner has going for it is that it has fun designs, motivational quotes, and fun sticker packs you can add to the mix to make planning go from boring to exciting and fun.
These can be found at Michaels where they sometimes go on sale, but they run out of styles pretty quickly.
Get it on Amazon to get it fast for free if you’ve got your Prime membership and make sure you get the styles you want.
Gift bundle idea: Pair the planner with the Frixion pens (especially the color combo pack), a pack of stickers, some inspirational stationary and the Rocketbook for all of her business ideas to create the perfect planner bundle for the big dreamer.
Having beautiful and inspirational words hanging on the walls can be a great reminder to keep pushing through when business life gets tough.
Depending on what vibe you’re going for, there are a variety of colors and styles that will be sure to fit any home office.
Many busy moms with a side hustle are going to be working late nights or early mornings just to get all of the things done.
She is going to need lots of caffeine to fuel that drive, so what better gift than a fun and inspirational coffee mug??
There are so many good ones it’ll be hard to pick and choose but whichever you get, it’ll be sure to be a small but great reminder to keep pushing through.
Bunn Coffee Pot…or anything coffee related really
As a busy mom working her full time job, she is going to need some pep in her step to be able to stay up and work on her side hustle or fuel for getting up super early.
What better way than to have a nice cup of coffee?
I personally love my Bunn Coffee Pot because it makes an entire pot of coffee in like 2 minutes.
So she can have as much coffee as she needs ASAP.
So no having to buy expensive pods or generating a ton of waste just to have fast coffee.
If making her own coffee or tea is a bit too time intensive, you can always go the gift card route.
Choose from Starbucks or maybe her favorite local coffee shop offers gift cards.
Gift bundle idea: This would be great to pair with that cool mug we mentioned earlier as a big coffee themed gift package.
Coffee isn’t for everyone and not all occasions need such a burst of caffeine.
In comes tea.
These make a great gift because if she is really into something specific, you can really personalize the gift. Have fun with it.
Make her feel empowered with a comfy shirt that highlights her strengths.
I love these shirts that have inspirational and witty phrases on them. Like this Coffee Hustle Repeat Shirt.
There are a variety of options to choose from so really think about what describes her, pick her favorite color and bam!
She will have a fun, cozy shirt she can wear with pride.
Gift bundle idea: This is one that can go with anything you get her to highlight the theme that she is working hard and you recognize and appreciate that.
These are amazing little gadgets.
Basically they stick on the back of your phone or phone case and make it easier to hold the phone for things like taking pictures one handed.
It’s also a prop to make watching or recording videos a lot easier.
So if the mom has a side hustle that involves taking pictures, recording videos or simply using her phone all day then this is a great little gift or stocking stuffer.
Gift bundle idea: Pair with an awesome new phone case and if you really want to impress, get her a new smartphone with all of the bells and whistles she needs to run her side hustle more smoothly.
This may surprise you but earbuds aren’t only for the cool kids listening to music.
These are so important for busy moms with side hustles because they allow her to listen to podcasts or business development ideas while doing laundry, “watching” cartoons with the little ones, or going for a run.
Having a nice set of headphones is a must-have to optimize those times (like while going on a jog) when she can multi-task and listen to audiobooks, podcasts, etc to be inspired, motivated, and improve her mindset so she can rock her business.
Gift bundle idea: Pair with an audible subscription, new cell phone and/or new laptop for a tech inspired gift.
Having Amazon Prime is a must have for sure.
Getting that free and fast shipping for getting all of those business supplies is going to really be helpful for the busy mom that may or may not have forgotten that she needed to order those boxes she needs.
If she’s got prime, then she can go ahead and get them ASAP so there aren’t too many hiccups along the way.
Lucky for you, Amazon makes it super easy to give a Prime membership as a gift.
Gift bundle idea: This is a nice add-on to any gift to really round it out.
There you have it.
The best gifts that any busy mom with a side hustle will love.
These gifts are going to make her life easier and help her reach her goals faster.
And since it’s going to look like you read her mind with these amazing ideas, she’s going to love you for it and be forever grateful.
