Other Stay at Home Gifts to Consider
Aside from buying, you can make her gifts too. In particular, you can do homemade gift certificates. In this type of gift, you don’t have to spend so much as you are offering your services instead. You can just put your crafty talents to good use and decorate a blank card. However, if you are not feeling crafty, you can simply write the details of the gift. You can also just print them out.
Here are some examples of homemade gift certificates:
Offering to babysit for a couple of hours is a great gift for any stay at home mom as it will give her time with herself. Even if it still includes doing errands like grocery shopping, doing it without a child is certainly a great blessing. She can take her time deciding which products to buy and which she should not.
You can also take this gift farther and offer to look after the kids while she and her partner go out on a date. Or, if she trusts you well enough, you can offer to babysit overnight.
You can give her a gift certificate that she can use whenever she needs to do something important. When she redeems this, you have to come over and watch over her kids. Just make sure to include in the details that she has to inform you at least a week in advance so you can also prepare.
Spending time together
One of the best things you can give to a SAHM is your time. Whether you’re a friend, child, or partner, you can give her a gift certificate that she can use whenever she wants to spend time with you. You can have lunch together, watch a movie, go to the salon, or anything she wants to do.
