Trying to think of the perfect Christmas gift for your favorite working mom? Or have you been too busy to make a list for yourselves, ladies?

Lucky for you, I made this list of Christmas gifts for working moms—with the help of fellow working moms I know—and checked it twice. Now it’s time for you to be nice. Show the working mom in your life how much she’s appreciated! (Moms: Feel free to forward this link to your partners, parents, etc.)

Dream on …

As a special bonus, here’s another wish list—not necessarily realistic (or even possible!), but dream-worthy gifts nonetheless:

  • Ability to expand and contract the space/time continuum to fit mom’s needs
  • Electric sex
  • To be magically skinny again
  • Kids who don’t fight
  • A cool new car
  • Bigger, nicer house
  • A 100% raise (or at least more than the cost-of-living increase!)

Do you have suggestions to add to either of these lists? Post them in the comments section. Meantime, I’ll update as I discover more of what working moms want.

  1. Dear Santa,
    Please give me a Roomba. I love robots. Especially when they clean.

  2. Dear Christmas Guy–

    Please give me more money and time to shop.


    P.S. If you can’t get Cara a Roomba, try finding her an Aismo!

  3. Oh, and what is electric sex? Are we talking vibrators? Or something different I’m not aware of?

  4. I will leave the definition of “electric sex” up to the reader. It was a suggestion by a BabyCenter mom. Sounded good to me.

  5. Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah says:

    Yes (I actually put this in a different comment earlier, but it is more appropriate here) the book “Mommy Guilt”l, or a gift certificate to a cleaning service.

  6. Now that’s quite a list, ladies! And I thought WE had some DreamWorthy Gifts… we should have come to YOU for advice! 😉 (Can you find me a wholesaler for those items…?)

    Keep up the good (and fun) work.

    Self-employed Mom with Guilt…


  7. I’d like to add an Elf on the Shelf who magically moves itself some time in the middle of the night! This Working Mama is guilty of forgetting him {ahem} or moving a mere foot from his last position while the kids wander the house looking for his new position!

    1. I have purposely ignored the Elf’s existence for this very reason. I can barely handle my Tooth Fairy duties as it is, and that’s only occasional 🙂

  8. I’ll trade all of the first list for ANY of the second list! ha! I’m going to share this list with my hubby! thanks!
