Everyone should be agree that the life of a mom is very busy, especially the homeschooling moms that have multiple roles. Choosing and giving a gift to a homeschooling mom should not be difficult. If you have anyone asking for a suggestion of what the homeschooling mom might need or want, here is a list of 10 Gift Ideas for a homeschooling mom. I hope with this list will be helpful for you to choose and give a homeschooling mom a gift.
10 Gift Ideas for a Homeschooling Mom
There are a lot of children works we have got, but as a working at home and a homeschooling mom, It is very time consuming to organize the children works that we can make as a portfolio. Having a box to keep each child's exclusive portfolio will be a grea help for a homeschooling mom
Laminating machine or laminator is a very useful tools for homeschooling moms. If you are a mom of younger children, a laminator gift will be a blessing since you will be able to save your paper and flash cards.
Using the laminator and the dry erased marker or pen will save paper a lot, especially for children learning the alphabets, numbers, phonics, and early grammar. You just need to copy one piece for sets of paper works, laminate them, and give them in turns. The same copy can be given to kids after the marker strokes on the plastic are cleaned. What a big save of time and money if you have other children that still can use the laminated paper.
Amazon Gift Cards
Although it is available in limit, Amazon gift card is a freedom of shopping for me. Receiving a gift is a blessing for me. Not having A suitable gift that can meet my need at certain time will be perfect. Not being greedy, people sometimes cannot figure out my need and want. That is not their fault at all. Amazon gift cards can help me to get what I want and need on the budget. It is very meaningful for me to get some kindle e-book.
As a homeschooling mom, I makes a lot of copies for children works, especially the digital curriculum or workbooks. Well, I try hard for being paperless, but there are always some situation when I cannot avoid the use of printed paper. The copy works and notebooking activities definitely need the printed paper. Our math workbooks will never use the digital paper.
Purchasing the 3 ringed binder might be too expensive sometimes for me. When there are only a few pieces of paper need to be bound. My binding machine has been quite old and I would be very happy to have GBC ProClick P50 Desktop Binding Machine (2515650). I know many people use it and I think it is a great tool.

Years of subscription
Not every homeschooling mom has a subscription on homeschooling program or tools. I do have some subscription for my children's and my own helpers. Here they are the examples:
- Schoolhouse Teacher is a portal for homeschoolers around the world to get digital lessons in various subjects. Years of free subscription voucher will be a wonderful gift.
- Any renewals of lesson subscription we have in the Homeschool Buyer Coops will be a blessing for us.
Laser Printer with Wifi
Printer is a necessary tool for homeschoolers who use the digital or internet resources. As I mentioned above, we try hard to limit our paper, but not all resources can be used well used digitally. At first, I used the inkjet printer, but it was frustrating when it came to the e-book printing. It took a long time that make me have to wait in case the paper got jumped or finish. I could not put a lot paper at once with most inkjet printer.
The use of tablets and smartphones to access the digital content give me another demand to be able to print the content using my portable devices through the wifi. It really save my time in opening the computer to print. To let you know, here is the laser printer with wifi that I would really happy to receive as a gift:
