Spoiler alert: Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation for the maternal figure in your life. And you know she deserves it! She’s always been there for you when you needed her — happy to help you move or study or cook you a healthy meal. She comforts you during the hard times and cheers you on when you’re succeeding.
Moms do it all — and with a smile on their faces, at that. Sometimes it seems like the only thing they aren’t doing is something nice for themselves! That’s why, for this Mother’s Day, we’ve compiled some of the best wellness treats, activities, and products to give your mom the gift of rest and relaxation. Take a load off, moms — you deserve it!
The Perfect Mother’s Day Wellness Gifts for Any Budget
Whether you’re looking to splurge or you need a thoughtful gift that won’t break the bank, these health and wellness-focused gift ideas are sure to make the mom in your life happy.
1. An Online Cooking Class
Whether you cooked with your mom as a kid or you both need to improve your culinary skills, a cooking class can be a fun (and tasty!) bonding exercise. Treat mom to an online course (like Gordon Ramsay’s Masterclass or the Top Chef University app) and you can both master a new recipe, hone your sourdough bread-making skills, or learn to roll sushi. It’ll leave her with some healthy recipes she can prepare again and again — the gift that keeps on giving!
2. A Weighted Sleep Mask
There’s no better gift for a tired mom than a full night of deep, restful sleep! If your mom’s been feeling anxious lately, help her get a better night’s sleep with a weighted sleep mask like the Nodpod eye mask. Filled with soothing microbeads, the mask contours to your face and uses gentle pressure to help you relax. Think of it as a weighted blanket…for your eyes.
3. The Perfect Tote Bag
One way to wellness is organization, which makes this gift perfect for the mom who’s literally juggling a million things. This Lululemon tote bag is the perfect carry-all — big enough to hold all her essentials, with pockets inside and out to help her stay organized. This travel-friendly tote will help your mama stay stress-free and prepared for anything, all while looking as chic as ever!
4. An Aromatherapy Shower Kit
If you can’t take your mom to the spa, take the spa to your mom! This Essio aromatherapy shower kit comes with an adjustable shower head attachment and three essential oil pods. Just attach the arm to her shower head, insert the pod, and let the stream of water diffuse the oils into the air to turn an ordinary shower into a delightful spa-like retreat.
5. Soy Candles
Looking for a sweet gift for the sweetest person in your life? Maybe your baking skills aren’t quite up to par, or you’re just not sure how you’d go about shipping a lemon meringue pie to your mom’s house. Get your mom the next best thing — these Lulu hand-poured soy candles come in dessert-inspired scents like sugared pecans, lemon biscotti, and crumb cake. Yum!
6. Burt’s Bees Hand Cream Trio
You may not be able to hit the salon for a mani-pedi right now, but you can still treat your mom to some at-home pampering. Made with shea butter and beeswax, this Burt’s Bees hand cream set comes in three soothing scents — Lavender & Honey, Orange Blossom & Pistachio, and Rosemary & Lemon — and provides much-needed moisture for dry, washed-’em-twenty-times-today hands.
7. Yoga Wheel
Get your yogi mom a gift that’ll take her practice to the next level. A yoga wheel can provide extra support for challenging poses and help with hip, back, and chest stretches. And the pretty print on this Yoga Design Lab wheel will make her feel like she’s on a yoga retreat in Bali (well, almost).
8. Matcha Green Tea
Turn her kitchen into a tea room with this tin of small-batch, ceremonial grade MatchaBar Green Tea Powder sourced from a mountainside farm in Japan. It’s perfect for afternoon tea or for mixing into a yummy lemon matcha latte.
9. Meditation Pillow
Give her the gift every mom could use — a few mindful minutes to herself! Covered in soft velvet, and cute enough to blend in with the rest of her decor, this Florensi Meditation Cushion is perfectly comfy and supportive so she can focus her attention inward.
10. Gratitude Journal
The concept behind this gratitude journal is simple: Each day, write down three things you’re grateful for — anything from a favorite TV show to a good cup of coffee. It’s the perfect gift to help your mom remember everything that makes her happy — you know, like thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts from her favorite child.
