Most homesteading mamas have wish lists that are a little bit different from moms who don’t dream about chickens and tomatoes. I put together a list of gifts that are are at the top of my wish list. I am sure that your homesteading mama (or wife/daughter/niece) has at least one of these on her list as well!
This may or may not be a hint for my husband…. (Husband, this is most definitely a hint.)
Mother’s Day on the Homestead
These things are so stinking’ cute! If chickens aren’t your thing, then you can get Sloggers in tons of other prints! They have a tall boot & and ankle shoe for all year comfort and use! -Honey, I’m a size 7 ;)-
This stand mixer is a staple for homestead kitchens. KitchenAid offers attachments that allow you to make pasta, ice cream, and sausage, dice & chop, core & slice, you can even grind your own flour with the grain mill attachment! Mom is sure to love it!!
3. Cast Iron
Give a gift that will last a lifetime…cast iron cookware! Mama can cook just about anything in these pans & she can pass them on to her kids and grandkids.
Preserving food by canning is a huge part of homesteading. Give mom a new hot water bath canner, pressure canner, or jars & other supplies to help stock her pantry this year!
5. New Garden Tools +tools for the kids
Homestead moms are always up for new gardening supplies! Grab a pair of cute garden gloves for her or maybe a full gardening tool kit! If she has small children, you can get kid sized tools so they can garden with her.
Mothers love heartfelt gifts! Husbands can write a letter to her or make her something special if he is into woodworking. Kids can pick mom some flowers, draw a picture, write a letter, or make a craft.
We use these in ev-er-y-thing! Essential oils are used for cleaning supplies, air fresheners, laundry, natural remedies, and in the barn! If you don’t know which oils to give mom, I suggest Lavender, Peppermint, and Tea Tree to start. 🙂
9. Sun Oven
Mom can save a bunch on her electricity bill buy cooking with the Sun Oven! She can cook & dehydrate and even purify water in this!
Get a discount on the Sun Oven with the code “Farmwife” or “FarmwifeASO” !
10. A Massage
Maybe this is a little cliche for Mother’s Day, but we don’t care! Homesteading mothers are on their feet all day raising plants, animals, and kids… they NEED a good massage every now & again.
11. A Homestead Journal
Give her a journal filled with blank pages for her to jot down her thoughts & farm data in or The ULTIMATE Guide for Homestead Mamas that has categories & checklists pre-made for her 🙂
Are you a homestead mama? What gift do you dream of?
