Help Around The House
This is a big one for every mom, regardless whether they are single or not! Keeping the house clean is a constant struggle with kids. Cheerio shrapnel is everywhere…ALL THE TIME! Add pets into the mix, and it’s a losing battle. Who wouldn’t want a break from vacuuming?!
Enter the Roomba.
“Connect to clean from anywhere with the Roomba 690 robot vacuum. The patented 3-Stage Cleaning System is specially engineered to loosen, lift, and suction everything from small particles to large debris from carpets and hard floors. Dirt Detect sensors alert 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.”
Done and done!
Help With Dinner
Another struggle for moms in general, but particularly single moms, is how to get a simple, healthy dinner on the table. Consider getting mom an Instant Pot.
I love it because of how fast it cooks, that it’s “hands off” cooking, and how many recipes I can make with just one pot to clean. Making a pot roast, one still partially frozen from the fridge, can be sautéed on all sides, and cooked to a perfect “medium” in a little over an hour, while I finish a load of laundry.
Another option is the gift of a meal delivery service. All the planning and prep work is taken care of, you just have to cook by following the recipe, and get dinner on the table. What a great way to get the whole family cooking together, without all the fuss! While there are many different services available, HelloFresh (available in Canada as well as the US) gets rave reviews for it’s easy to follow directions, and pre-portioned separate ingredients.
Help With Decorating
It’s a reminder that you are still a family, and the important things in life like kindness, respect and love. Another idea is a mom-themed picture frame with a picture of the kids. One of the best gifts I ever received from my friend, she reminded me that I am, and will always be, the best mom to my boys. (Cue the tears! Pass the Kleenex!)
Help To Feel Pampered
Anything that can make a single mom feel pampered is a big hit. A massage, a spa day or a mani/pedi, or a relaxing self-care getaway are all sure-fire ways to indulge a single mom. You can also bring the pedicure home with a relaxing foot spa paired with some essential oils, soothing foot cream and cozy slippers!
Help To Relax
At the end of a hard day, single mom’s could use a little help to relax. And something that can help the whole family is essential oils and an aromatherapy diffuser.
I love this diffuser and use it every night. My youngest loves the soft, colour-changing rainbow lights, and the soothing scents of our favourite essential oil help everyone drift off to sleep.
Help To Unwind
Once the kids are sound asleep, it’s mom’s time to unwind! Give a gift of her favourite wine, paired with this humorous glass or my favourite “Oliva Pope” wine glasses (paired with the final season of Scandal of course)
Help Inspire Her Greatness
The overwhelm of single motherhood can have even the strongest of moms wondering if she will ever have a life of her own again. But it's never too late to be "what you want to be when you grow up". Check out some of the other amazing classes by the likes of Margaret Atwood, Annie Leibovitz, Alice Waters, and Jane Goodall.
Even my oldest son has been enjoying learning cooking with Gordon Ramsey, and space exploration by astronaut Chris Hadfield. It's been one of the best investments we have made this year! Buy a single class for $120, or get a year-long all access pass to every class for just $240 US!
