As military spouses, we all know how challenging this life can be. Don’t get me wrong—it’s also extremely rewarding and full of unique experiences. But anyone who has ever had to pack up her family and move every few years, who has ever had to go through a year-long deployment, or who has raised a child whose parent was serving overseas knows that it’s not always easy. That’s why I’m here today with a list of the best gifts for military moms: perfect presents to let your wife, sister, cousin, best friend, or mom know that she deserves the world.
A beautiful piece of art depicting their favorite military branch
A beautiful piece of artwork depicting their favorite military branch is a great way to show pride in your branch and can be customized to include all the details that matter most.
Artwork can be a great way to show pride in your branch. Beautiful pieces of art are often expensive, but they’re also very meaningful gifts that will last forever if you get them right. If you’re looking for an affordable alternative, there’s nothing wrong with commissioning custom military art—and if you’re going this route anyway, why not make it extra special?
Each branch has its insignia (or “crest”), and many artists specialize in creating original pieces based on these symbols. Customized artwork is a great way to show pride in your branch or even just as an expression of love for those who serve it!
A cute throw pillow featuring their branch logo
Get them a throw pillow with their branch logo on it. A cute throw pillow featuring their branch logo will be a great addition to their home and will remind them of their service. It’ll also make a great conversation piece for when friends come over!
One of the best things about being in a military family is that you get to feel close to one another even when they’re far away. A throw pillow with its branch logo can help you do just that!
Their branch’s flag
Flags are a great way to show support for the military. They’re also a wonderful gift idea for mothers who are proud of their children’s service, and they can be customized with a name and rank (if you know it!). The flag that you choose should correspond to the relevant service branch—otherwise, it may be hard to find something that she can use.
Flags can be hung at home or taken on deployment so that moms can show off their patriotism while serving as well!
A subscription to a monthly treat box filled with healthy snacks
A subscription to a monthly treat box filled with snacks is a great gift for a military mom. These kinds of boxes are allergen-free, so there’s no risk of your loved one’s allergies being triggered. Plus, having snacks in the house means that when service members are deployed (which is often), they’ll have something to keep their energy up. They’ll think of you every time they dig into the box of goodies you sent them!
A custom wine glass gift featuring their rank and name
A custom wine glass is a great gift for any military mom. It’s useful, it can be personalized with a rank and name, an insignia, or even just a saying. You could even put your photo on the glass! Or you could have a company make glasses with their logo on them (think “I love it when my son comes home from deployment” or something similar).
Personalized military sign
One of the most popular gifts for military moms is a personalized military sign. These signs are available in many sizes and can be made from a variety of materials, so you have plenty of options to choose from. However, before purchasing this type of gift, you must consider some factors first:
- The size and durability of the sign. A smaller sign may not be strong enough to withstand storms or high winds; a larger one may not fit well in small spaces such as porches or garages. Likewise, if it’s going outdoors then keep in mind how much snow/rain/sunlight exposure it will get over time. If possible I’d recommend buying one big enough so that your Mom doesn’t have trouble reading what’s written on her new customized outdoor decoration!
- How easy it is to install (and remove) after purchase so she doesn’t need professional help doing either task – even though she might appreciate having someone else do them once they’re ready 🙂
- How easy it is clean off dirt/dust particles from time to time without damaging any part(s) within its structure itself because there shouldn’t be any loose pieces inside which could fall out onto anyone nearby who might step outside later on down the road when walking around outside where these decorations would be planted into ground soil around garden bushes/flowers etcetera…
Military mom shirt
Military moms are a special breed of strong, capable women. They put their lives on hold to raise their kids while their husbands serve in the military. Your mom will love receiving this shirt as a gift.
You can find military mom shirts on Etsy or Amazon. You could also make your own! A great way to show support for your mom!
One of these books about the experiences of military moms
You could also pick up one of the many books on military moms and their experiences. These women are strong, resilient, and brave. They have a lot on their plate—a lot of stress and responsibilities to look after as well as love for their families. Oftentimes, you will find that it is the military moms who are the heroes in your life because they bring home for you what so many other people cannot: hope.
A pair of gym leggings with a military pattern
If you know that your mom is into fitness, there is no better gift to give her than a pair of gym leggings with her military pattern on them. This is not only a great way to put a smile on her face but also show off your pride as well!
Whether she’s working out or lounging around the house, these can be worn at any time and in public if she chooses. They are made from high-quality materials and come in different sizes so they will last longer than some other types of workout gear out there.
This gift will show that you understand how much she loves being active and proud of who she serves because wearing these leggings shows everyone how proud they should be too!
Digital watch with multiple timezones for keeping up with family all over the world
Time zones are important for military families, and this watch is a great gift for a mom who has kids all over the world. It’s a practical gift that she can use every day to keep up with her family members’ schedules, which makes it extra valuable.
A necklace to remind her how much she’s loved
If you’re looking for a gift that’s sure to make your mom feel loved, consider getting her a necklace with the names and birthstones of all her children. If you want to get even more sentimental (and also save some money), this could also be done on a bracelet or keychain. Your mom will love having something to remind her that she’ll never feel alone in this world as long as she has us!
A tumbler for her morning coffee
If your mom is a coffee drinker, chances are she uses a tumbler in the morning. Tumblers are great for keeping her hot beverages warm—no more burnt fingertips! And they’re also great at keeping them cold if she enjoys an iced beverage each day. A tumbler is perfect for the office or when she’s on the go because it fits easily into her purse, gym bag, or glove box of her car.
Engraved wallet so she always knows what’s most important
An engraved wallet is a gift that your mom will always have with her and cherish. She can use it as a reminder of what’s most important in her life.
You can choose to have it engraved with something like one of these:
- Her favorite saying, such as “Home is where the heart is” or “Family first, forever!”
- The name of her husband or child if they are deployed with her. This way, she won’t forget why they are away from home serving our country.
- Her rank and name so that she always has the pride of being a soldier close by. It’s also an easy way for other soldiers to recognize them as well!
The options are endless when it comes down to finding an engraving saying on this type of gift but these ideas will give you some ideas if none come immediately into mind!
A wine glass to celebrate small victories at the end of the day
A wine glass is a great way to celebrate small victories at the end of the day. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, a nice glass of wine with a friend can be just what you need. If you want your gift to be extra special, consider including some notes on how they can use their new wine glass:
- Use it when they get home from work and want to relax
- Use it after an argument with their spouse or kids (just make sure they don’t drink too much)
Bottle of bubble bath for when she just needs time to herself
A nice, hot bath can be a great way to relax and unwind after a long day. You can even take some time out of your evening to fill the tub with some bubbles, light some candles, and just enjoy being able to relax in peace. The warm water will help you feel better physically while the steam from the shower can do wonders for your sinuses!
Taking a bubble bath before bedtime is also an excellent way to make sure that you’re able to get a good night’s sleep. By taking this time for yourself, it helps calm down both your mind and body so that when you go into bed later on at night, it will be easier for you to fall asleep quickly without any interruptions. This is especially important if any other members of your family suffer from breathing problems such as asthma or allergies because taking baths often helps open up their airways allowing them to breathe easier throughout the rest of their day which could potentially lead them to have less trouble falling asleep at night as well.
Hopefully, this has given you some ideas for the perfect gift. You know your military mom best, so we’re sure she’ll love whatever you decide on. Remember, it’s not just the gift itself that matters—it’s the thought behind it!
