Mother’s Day Gift Guide

by Ashley

The day I became a mom, my whole world changed for the better. I can’t even remember what life was like before I had my two boys. I also have a new profound appreciation for my own mother and everything she went through raising me and my siblings. Mother’s truly have one of the hardest jobs in the world, but it is also one of the greatest blessings. I know that the world is going through a really strange time at the moment, but I wanted to make thinking about Mother’s Day a little easier for everyone. So here is my ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide for any kind of mom out there. These are all gifts that I have loved myself, gifts I would love to receive as a mom or gifts that have been given to other moms I know.

For the Mom Who Needs a Spa Day

  1. Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak: I love soaking in a hot bath at the end of a long day with the kids. It’s one of the ways I enjoy unwinding. This bath soak leaves skin super soft, moisturized and smells so good. It’s also vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and sulfate free.
  2. NEST Apricot Tea Reed Diffuser: This is my favorite scent from NEST and the diffuser is the perfect accessory for an evening bath time soak.
  3. Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask: One of my favorite things to do before a bath is to put on a face mask. I have only heard amazing things about this Summer Fridays face mask. It hydrates the skin leaving it feeling extra soft and is made from clean ingredients.
  4. Shiatsu Back, Neck and Shoulder Massager: I am obsessed with my massager. I have the worst pains in my back and neck from the kids and the way I sleep at night. This makes the pain so much better and gets rid of the awful knots that have formed since becoming a parent. I practically use mine every night before bed. It’s a must for a mom!
  5. Vitruvi White Stone Diffuser: Essential oils are so relaxing and smell so good. This Vitruvi diffuser is beautiful and can be put anywhere in the house to mom relax throughout the day.
  6. Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Adult Robe: The Barefoot Dreams blanket is one of the softest and coziest things you can own. I got one for my sister for Christmas and she absolutely loves it. The robe is the most comfortable and made of high-quality material. Mom will absolutely fall in love with this and probably make it part of her daily wardrobe staple.

For the Fashionista Mama

The Alexa makes a great gift and if you have family or friends who also have one, you can video chat using them.

Everything cooks under 45 minutes so it’s honestly the perfect gift for the mom who needs easy quick and tasty meals.
