Top Back-To-School Must-Haves for Moms: You Deserve New Stuff, Too!

Back-To-School must-haves for Moms are totally a thing.

Anywhere you look right now you’ll find back-to-school must-haves for the kids…but what about for Mom? While you’re out and online shopping for your kids you might as well get yourself a little something, too. We all know the beginning of the school year means even more on Mama’s overflowing plate. And while all of the things on this must-have list might not be “necessary” for school, they’re totally necessary for your sanity.

Side note: I had a lot of fun curating this list. You’ll definitely see a little bit of my humor come out in some of these descriptions. And as a stay-at-home Mom, I could see myself using any of these given items every day.

Must-Haves for Mamas

We all know that Mom is going to have to sit in the drop-off and pick-up line once school starts. Make sure your coffee stays to temp in this Stanley dupe with great ratings!

Everyone knows that Moms need comfy shirts that still look cute. Get this shirt and make your Mama status known on the first day of school.

Mamas need coffee to fill that 40oz tumbler they take into the school drop-off and pick-up lines. Kicking Horse Coffee is good in general, but we all know Mamas are superheroes….so what better coffee than Kick Ass?

In all seriousness, Mom life is hard and it’s busy. This Mom Life Planner has a little bit of everything to keep you going and organized from June 2023 until July 2024.

Moms are on their feet A LOT. Stay-at-home Mom or Working Mom….it really doesn’t matter. We all have a lot to do to keep our families afloat. Keep your feet happy in this cute slip-ons.

Aside from my actual friends, this thing is my best friend. Keep your back happy, Mama, with this foam roller.

What kind of back-to-school must-haves for Moms list would this be without the necessary dry shampoo? Keep the grease away and add this to your own list.

We all know that Moms get stuck carrying everything at extracurricular events. At least you can be cute while carrying the load of your family when you wear this backpack. And did I mention it can convert and be carried in two other ways?!

The beginning of the school year means the beginning of endless phone calls. At least these Beats Studio Buds will keep your family secretary duties easier while you’re on the go.

Moms tell their kids to stay hydrated all of the time. But guess what Moms? You gotta stay hydrated, too.

While you’re out buying your kids cute lunch accessories, buy yourself some too! This Bentgo Classic All-In-One Stackable Lunch Box has more than 45,000 reviews!

Let’s be honest, Moms…we all have a stash. Whether it’s candy or cookies or whatever else, we all need to sneak away and enjoy something occasionally. For me there’s nothing like a good ol’ Reese’s Miniature sitting and waiting in the freezer.

All of the extracurriculars have Mamas feeling a little more sleepy and worn down…and unfortunately for some of us our eyes will show it. This 20 pack of under eye patches have a 4.3 rating and over 13,400 reviews so why not give them a try?
