My mom would tell you that every day is the perfect day to celebrate how amazing she is but Mother’s Day is when I would get in trouble for not giving her love and attention.
The obvious is treating her to a mother-daughter/son spa day (while we could give you a list of recommendations, it’s highly personal and based on your location) so instead, we are going to guide you through wellness minded gifts.
These gifts express your care about mom’s wellness because she spends so much of her time thinking about yours!
(Love you Mom!)
Post Workout Cardigan
There’s no need to leave class looking less than fierce and fabulous. A simple cardigan is easy to stuff into the gym bag and throw on after a workout. The beyond yoga line has a few to pick from (yoga wear, also a great gift idea!) but I really like the way the “Brushed Up Origami Cardigan” falls. $132
Gym Bag Essentials
Little items that can bring a bit of spa to the gym and make her feel fresh. We love the Bonblissity Scrubs that transform from exfoliant to lotion with water or an assortment of Savvy Traveler wipes (deodorant, teeth cleaner, makeup removal, anti-bacterial personal wipes, and more – found on amazon/walgreens). $20
Our top pick is the “Forever Young” water bottle from VitaJuwel. The crystals are meant to bring love, harmony, connection, and self-acceptance through the elixir of life, water! This bottle is dishwasher safe and she can buy alternate crystals separately if she ever wants to change it up! $120
A tote that will make her smile & think of you when she uses it. This You Had Me At Spa Day “go” bag fits all the items she needs before she runs out the door. It’s a gym bag, a toiletry bag, or an everything but the kitchen sink bag!
From the new Lucky Owl Collection, this 12 oz. tote is made of sturdy canvas to last.
Also available: T-shirt and coffee mug , $16
Sparkly Makeup Bag / Clutch
There’s no Mom like your Mom and her bag should be as unique as she is. Get her a vinyl glitter bag to hold beauty supplies, on the go items, etc. You can customize it with her name and she’s sure to get noticed for all the fabulosity that she is. The “Mom” tote really outshines the “world’s best mom mug” – just sayin. $22
Settle for no less than luxury soaps from around the world to nourish and cleanse the skin of the most important woman in your life. She put up with you right? She deserves it.
“Each soap unveils a unique essence for a captivating voyage to the most wonderful Beauty Rituals of the World®” – Cinq Mondes. $50
Charmeuse Pillow Case
Ah, the pillow designed for real “beauty” sleep. It is proven to prevent wrinkles, boost skin hydration, reduce hair loss & tangles, and add volume and shine. She can rest easy, comfortable, and beautiful.
Available in eleven colors by Branche Beauty, $95.
Chocolate is always a great gift but this particular chocolate is a little different. Wei of Chocolate is “good for the body, mind + spirit” because you aren’t supposed to chew it! In an effort to help with meditation, close your eyes, and focus on savoring the melting deliciousness.
It’s Organic, Fair trade, Vegan, GMO free, Dairy free, Gluten free and Soy free so she can feel great about indulging in it.
8pc tube, 9 flavors/collections to choose from. $12
To quote Buzz Lightyear, You’ll love her “to infinity and beyond”. This necklace is a reminder of your love and appreciation for her support and encouragement throughout your life.
Also, this necklace was:
- Handcrafted by young women escaping human trafficking
- 100% of proceeds go to International Sanctuary
- 18″ long
- Available in Gold & Silver Tone
Lava Rock Bracelet & Essential Oil
Jewelry with extra purpose and intention. Mom can find her peace by enjoying essential oil benefits all day and trend set at the same time.
“Handcrafted with semi-precious gemstones + black lava rock. Each bracelet is paired with an essential oil blend from Body Bliss, which can be applied directly to the lava rock to release aromatherapy scents for up to 24 hours.”
Travel Sized Skincare Set
She’s on the go, that doesn’t mean skincare has to suffer. Get travel sized versions of her favorite line. We love the Intraceuticals pack because it works well with any changes in humidity by layering varying weights of hyaluronic acid – her skin will absorb what it needs to be hydrated. $149
CBD is a non-psychoactive ingredient that helps relieve muscle and joint pain when applied topically. Hours on hours of laptop use has cramped her shoulders and she’s wearing them like earrings – let’s help her out. We recommend WELL CBD Salve, $46
She works hard and deserves heavenly sheets to unwind. Comphy sheets were originally for spa treatments and customers loved them so much, they developed a home line. 110% Live Love Spa approved (our whole team has them!)
(pro – tip: Comphy also makes robes out of the sheet material)
I hope this wellness-minded gift guide helped you decide what to get for Mom this year. If you have other ideas, please share them with the community in the comments!
