Finding the right stepmom gifts can be tough. Mother’s Day is fast approaching and it’s always a weird holiday for stepmothers. Stepmoms do most of the same things biological moms do – but they don’t always get the recognition.
Kids come out of the womb loving their biological moms. But loving their stepmom is a choice for children to make.
So it’s nice when you can show your favorite stepmom that you appreciate her. If you’re looking for a way to show her a little love, here are some gift ideas. And whether it’s for Mother’s Day, Christmas, or birthday, you can get everything on this list from the comfort of your couch!
Stepmom Specific Gifts
Etsy is a great place to look for stepmom-themed gifts. Whether you’re looking for something sweet and sentimental to show your appreciation for stepmom, or you’re looking for something funny or tongue in cheek. And now more than ever, it is a great time to support small businesses.
Stepmom Gifts For Anyone
Athleta has some great athleisure wear. If she loves pilates and yoga, this is the place. But also if she’s hanging out at home a lot more these days, as we all are, Athleta has some super cute options.
And if you’re looking to economize during these times? Athleta partners with Rakuten to give you cashback (if you aren’t familiar with Rakuten, I highly recommend. You get cashback just from online shopping – I’ve made over $600 from it). Also, if you join the Athleta email list, they’ll send you a code for 20% off.
In addition to clothes, Athleta has some cute accessories perfect for working out – or staying at home. Like hair scrunchies, socks, yoga mats, and baseball caps.
Sur La Table
Does she like to cook or bake? Or is she doing more of it these days now that we’re all staying at home? Sur La Table has all the baking supplies she might need. Cookie cutters, marble rolling pins, cute aprons, and bread boxes – you name it. And it also participates in Rakuten, so you can get some cashback with your purchase.
South Moon Under
If you’ve never shopped at this cute store, you’re missing out. They have locations all over, but the online store is just as fun. With neat gift ideas for any stepmom on your list.
From pajamas that don’t look like pajamas when you lay around the house to luxe sugar cubes for her tea and a super cool cloche for matches to go with a cool lavender candle, they’ve got all kinds of interesting finds.
If you need to get something quickly, of course, Amazon Prime is your best bet. Amazon does not have as many unique stepmom specific gifts that Etsy does, but there are lots of options ranging from essential oils to pampering gift sets to stepmom self-help books.
Speaking of stepmom help, if you know a new (or existing) stepmom who needs some help, please point her this way. We offer a private, stepmoms only Facebook group where she can talk to other stepmoms going through what she is. And we have developed several amazing tools that she can use to help get a handle on navigating her blended family dynamic.
I hope this has given you some great ideas for stepmom gifts for your favorite bonus mom. What else are you doing to celebrate Mother’s Day this year? Comment below!
