Keep reading to get great ideas for stocking stuffers, homeschool mom gifts, presents for the whole family, and lots of ideas for Christmas fun too. If you’re a homeschooling parent or grandparent, you definitely don’t want to miss this list.
Everything You Need For The Best Homeschool Family Gifts
Homeschooling is a lifestyle. We are always with our children, teaching them and learning through real-life experiences. Over the years, we have learned that the best lessons happen outside the classroom, and embracing a lifetime of learning opportunities is totally worth it!
The very best gifts will be those that fit into our homeschool life. Activities, games, books, and supplies we can use as we explore, get creative, and let our curiosity run wild are the perfect gifts for homeschool families. If there are homeschoolers on your holiday gift exchange list this year, I’d encourage you to choose gifts that will keep giving as they learn throughout the year.
Educational Stocking Stuffers Perfect For Homeschoolers
Stockings are so fun! Christmas stockings are an opportunity for homeschooling parents to restock on fun craft supplies, try new card games, and more. Stockings don’t have to be filled with candy and junk you’ll find in the trash next week.
Check out my list of 100 educational stocking stuffers for some brand new ideas. You’ll find games like Tiny Polka Dot, Rory’s Story Cubes, and Top Trumps. Plus, art supplies, brainteasers, and puzzles to keep your kids learning and having fun this year.
Gifts That Are Both Educational And Fun
Giving gifts that are both educational and fun is an excellent way to get more bang for your buck this Christmas. Your kids may or may not get excited about opening up new workbooks and novels, but I bet they’d be excited about a new chemistry experiment, exciting board game, or a new video game that just happens to teach math skills.
Choosing gifts that are both educational and exciting ensures your homeschoolers won’t just be happy to open their gift, they’ll enjoy it all year long! You can get great ideas for educational gifts in my educational gift guide. It’s filled with ideas for interest-led homeschoolers to enjoy this Christmas season and all year long.

Gifts For The Whole Family
I once asked a mom of many what I could get for her youngest on his birthday. She sighed and gently explained that they really have everything. Toys get passed down and the children have so much fun playing with each other that the toys they truly use are those that all the children can enjoy together.
That was the moment I realized that giving gifts to a homeschool family is sort of like that too. The best gifts are the ones for the whole family. Sometimes these are experience gifts like zoo passes, tickets to see a new play or a game we can all play together.
Thinking of things to give the whole family might feel like too much of a challenge at first, but I’ve put together a Family Gift Guide to make it easier on you. You’ll find great ideas for board games, outdoor activities, subscription boxes, and more.
Gifts Especially For The Homeschool Mom
She has carefully chosen great gifts for the whole family, but what should you get her? What do you give a homeschool mom to help her along the way? If you’re a homeschool mom, what should you ask for this Christmas that might make the rest of the school year easier?
Homeschool moms do a lot! We are mom, teacher, chauffeur, nurse, cook, cleaning lady… and so much more. We love the job, but it’s not always easy. Gifts that help us along the way are greatly appreciated. You can see a few of my favorite homeschool mom gifts in the Homeschool Mom Gift Guide, including planners, my favorite pens, self-care treats, and my favorite gadgets to make life easier.
