Like the parenthood journey, no mama is the same. That’s why we’re switching things up this year Mother’s Day to offer a mama gift guide full of goodies perfect for the different types of mamas in your life, no matter their season in parenthood.
The Bellabeat Leaf wellness tracker with Swarovski Crystals ($149) is a beautiful jewelry piece that can be worn as a bracelet or necklace — all while tracking your wellness! The Bellabeat app makes it easy to monitor your sleep, activity, stress, meditation, and reproductive health like no other wellness tracker I’ve seen on the market. Track your period and associated symptoms, note if you had unprotected sex (helpful if you’re TTC), and if you’re pregnant (then it tracks how many weeks)!
An Easy Clean
There was a time when I said I wouldn’t want a vacuum as a gift . . . then I had kids. There’s a new mess every 5 minutes! Now I recommend the Black & Decker Corded Canister Vacuum ($180) to make the non-stop cleanup required of parents SO much easier. It’s lightweight, comes with all the attachments you need (upholstery, crevice, small brush), an anti-allergen HEPA filter to trap dirt, dust, & pollens, and has adjustable suction strength using the multi-cyclonic system! The best part? You can buy it on Amazon in time for Mother’s Day.
Whether you’re shopping for an expecting mama, new nursing mom, or grandma a comfy robe is an easy buy. The ergoPouch Matchy Matchy Robe ($50) matches the super cute ergoPouch sleepwear your little one might already have, too. It’s skin-friendly, breathable — important for postpartum moms and grandmas— and certified non-toxic to give mamas peace of mind when snuggling up with their favorite people.
Spa time doesn’t have to mean a trip to the spa! Gift mom a little retreat at home with a Footnanny 1-2-3 Kit ($50). Each kit includes a Rescue Buffer for dry/cracked feet, two sets of a Footnanny cream of your choice, and two pairs of cotton ankle socks for a fun mommy (or grandma) and me spa afternoon.
Sometimes mamas just need a day to themselves! Gift her a day to explore with this beautiful Monaco Travel Bag from Luli Bebe (on pre-order) and an itinerary for the day. Or simply gift this bag full of family fun for a little road trip! It’s stain-resistant with a wipeable interior, and includes 10 pockets of all sizes — perfect for mamas on-the-move.
Chocolates are a great go-to gift. But if the mom in your life lives far away or has a bunch of kids, you’re going to want to skip the box and order a gift basket. The Sugar Plum Chocolate Mountain Gift Assortment ($75) includes a little bit of everything for the mom who enjoys savory yet sweet snacks but most importantly, there’s enough in the basket for her enjoy the treats even after the kids get to it.
Self-care is essential as a mom— you can’t be 100 percent if you’re burnt out, right? Loloma Fiji Organic Coconut Oil ($32) is the kind of self-care moms can add to their daily getting dressed routine to hydrate thirsty skin when they’re tight on time, or can use for re-centering and self-care moments when there’s a bit more time. Bonus: It can be used to help with sleep, as a diaper cream, and as a facial moisturizer too! This makes a great last-minute gift since it’s available via Amazon Prime.
This one is for all the expecting and new mamas — get her a carrier! The Moby Cloud Ultra-Light Hybrid Carrier ($60) makes babywearing a cinch for new parents by combining the womb-like feel of a stretchy wrap with the ease and security of a structured carrier. Help mama’s back and let her get back to doing the things she misses by gifting this!
Bedtime can be a tough part of the day for many families, making gifts like Kiss Kiss Goodnight’s Discovery Kit a huge blessing. It comes with three mama-made products that each offer multiple uses for a peaceful nighttime skincare ritual for just mom or both mom and the littles.
Whether the mama in your life is a smoothie, coffee or tea person, this goSili Silicon Straw Cup ($19) makes enjoying drinks on-the-go both mom-friendly eco-friendly.
