    Default Gift ideas for busy single mother

    Hi everyone
    I’m after some gift ideas for my best friend’s birthday. She works crazy hours and also recently separated from her husband. She has two kids under 5... I was thinking voucher for hello fresh/ you foodz or something similar to make her life a bit easier. She lives in north qld. Any ideas?

    Your idea is lovely.

    I would suggest anything that outsources a job for her, like a cleaner for a one off spring clean, mower man/woman, or a voucher to her favourite cafe or restaurant.

    I really do like your idea though.

    I agree! Anything outsourcy is great. A house clean or two, some lawn mowing, even a voucher for a night or afternoon of baby sitting (you baby sitting I mean) so she can go and do something like a movie or haircut.
    Actually maybe a hair cut or beauty voucher.
    But equally the hello fresh or meal thing is also a good idea.
    For me (busy single mum of 1) anything that reduces the stuff I have to think about, or reduces the life admin, is good for me!

    A voucher for a 45 minute back & shoulder massage. I say this because I know I would love it, lol. It’s a bit indulgent and I’m tipping she probably wouldn’t spend money on something like that for herself.
    Edit: oh and offer to babysit the kids while she’s using the voucher of course.
