I have put together a few Christmas gift ideas that I would have loved to have available to me in the thick of our homeschooling years. Three of our four children are homeschool graduates and making a difference in the world with their gifts and talents. We are blessed with one teenager at home that we are homeschooling. Time goes so fast! ENJOY it while it lasts!! Happy shopping and remember, relationships and time together, not gifts, are the most important!  

Gifts for mom

Daily Encouragement for Homeschoooling Mothers - Yellow House Book Rental

Daily Encouragement for Homeschooling Mothers is upbuilding and practical. This is a full-color, hardcover gift book with a ribbon bookmark. Sample pages Sale price $5.99  

One Hundred Devotions for Homeschool Moms Jackie Wellwood is warm, vulnerable, and encouraging in this devotional. Her daily topics seem to be just what I needed to hear on a particular day. I have read  several times. On Amazon, new and used starting at $0.01

One Hundred and One more Devotions for Homeschool Moms There are days when knowing you're not alone--knowing that somebody understands both the frustrations and the joys that you face as a homeschooling mom--is the only thing that helps you through. There are days when nobody understands the encouragement you need quite like another homeschooler.  On Amazon, new and used starting at $0.01

Great Homeschool Convention.This would make any homeschool mom jump for joy! She will receive encouragement and resources that can be used all year long!


For Children

Recent studies show that families will spend $1,000 per child on toys each year. WOW! not us!

Pley - leading toy rental company

Do I wish that this was available when my children were young. Every Christmas money is spent on toys that become old way too soon. With Pley toy rentals you don't have to worry neglected toys and wasted money. Your children will enjoy toys just long enough that they are fun, exciting and new. Every month they get to enjoy a new toy. 


Pley: A gift for the whole family!

Do you know a child who loves LEGOS? Play LEGO rentals are the perfect Christmas gift.  As a Mom who is constantly fighting the battle of “HOW DO I ORGANIZE ALL THESE LEGOS??” – I think the idea is brilliant. (Heidi)

Pley is like Legos Netflix When you initially set up an account with, you create your own Pleylist which is essentially a list of all the sets you’d be interested in building.  You can choose from hundreds of sets either by theme (Architecture, City, Duplo, Friends, Star Wars, Super Heroes, Creator, etc.) or age group. Each month, new fun!

How about Pley gift cards? The perfect gift that gives all year long!
