The Ultimate 2017 Gift Guide For That Single Mom In Your Life

Have a single mom in your life and don’t know what to get them? Well, from our collective of awesome single moms, here is the ultimate gifts for those superhero single parents out there.

  1. The Kickass Single Mom: Be Financially Independent, Discover Your Sexiest Self, and Raise Fabulous, Happy

When Emma Johnson’s marriage ended she found herself broke, pregnant, and alone with a toddler. Searching for the advice she needed to navigate her new life as a single professional woman and parent, she discovered there was very little sage wisdom available. In response, Johnson launched the popular blog to speak to other women who, like herself, wanted to not just survive but thrive as single moms. Now, in this complete guide to single motherhood, Johnson guides women in confronting the naysayers in their lives (and in their own minds) to build a thriving career, achieve financial security, and to reignite their romantic life—all while being a kickass parent to their kids.

  1. Southwest $200 Gift Card

 Its a fact, Single Moms love to travel. And what better way to say, come visit Grandma and Grandpa than a gift card from Southwest Airlines.

  1. $100 Amazon Gift Card

Nothing says I love you like a gift card from Amazon.  Most single parents rely on Amazon so they can make their lives easier. Really I don’t know one single mom that doesn’t use Amazon, and if they don’t, you will introduce to them the best invention yet.

4.iRobot Roomba 690 Wi-Fi Connected Vacuuming Robot

Single parents’ most difficult challenge is having a clean house.  Coming home from work to clean is not easy.  But with this high-performance robot vacuum that even picks up pet hair and is Wi-Fi connected to clean from anywhere with this is the ultimate single parent gift. It even has a dirt detect sensor that  alerts the Roomba robot vacuum to clean more thoroughly on concentrated areas of dirt. Just press clean or schedule Roomba on the go with the iRobot Home App and come home to a clean floor.

  1. Amazon’s New Monthly Cleaning Service

Did you know you can buy services like a cleaning service on Amazon?   Every single mom and single dad would kill for a cleaning service. Even if you give them a certificate for once every 3 months, any mom or dad would be thrilled to have the extra help with everyday or deep cleaning.  It is as easy as pie to give this gift.

  1. Handpicked, Insured and Licensed Handyman

If you ask most single moms they have a “honeydo list” that is very long.  Although single moms can be quite handy, there are some things that are just too hard to take on with kids pulling at your skirt.   This is one of the best gifts that will never be returned.  Your single mom friend will get an email from your pro to confirm the date, time, and other details. The best part is, all of Amazon’s service pros have been handpicked and are required to be business background-checked, insured, and licensed if applicable. Additionally, they require any pros traveling to your location to pass a 6-point criminal background check.

  1. Bad Moms and Bad Mom’s Christmas

In this outrageous comedy from the writers of The Hangover, Amy (Mila Kunis) has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms (Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn (Christina Applegate) and her clique of devoted perfect moms (Jada Pinkett Smith and Annie Mumolo).

Buying gifts for single moms is important because we need so many things to make our lives easier so we can spend time with our kids after a long day of work. From the single moms of the world, we thank you in advance.
