Cozy Wearable Blanket

This looks so cozy!!! Any mom would love this to snuggle with her kids, no matter how old they are! This is great for snuggling on the couch, having coffee, reading a book, sitting up in bed, or snuggling with others.


Bed Head A-Wave-We-Go Adjustable Hair Waver for Multiple Waves

After suggesting this I got one for myself and I LOVE it!! It’s not a normal curling iron, it makes your hair wavy from tight waves to tousled, depending on what you’d like. It has over 9,000 ratings with 4.4 stars out of 5 overall.

One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer

I have one of these and they are awesome!! So awesome that I even got one for my mom. It’s so easy to dry your hair and style it all at once, and quickly! Instead of just shooting hot air all over this actually gets under your hair to not only dry it quickly but also help curl it under slightly. I’ve used mine on long hair and short hair. I honestly went from not drying to styling my hair at all to using this simple tool and feel a lot more human every day. This is a great Mother’s Day gift that will simplify her morning routine!

Essential Oil Diffuser & Oils

I use an essential oil diffuser every night while I’m sleeping. I use lavender to destress or eucalyptus when I feel a cold coming on or for allergies. There are so many great essential oils that help people feel their best selves. I am certainly no expert but I do feel essential oils are awesome and have health benefits. I have allergies and asthma but haven’t had any issues with diffusing essential oils. I ensure that I empty and rinse out my diffuser every morning and let it air dry so it’s ready for when I need it. This diffuser is a Mother’s Day gift she can use every day!

Neck & Back Massager

This neck and back massager is AMAZING and something every mama deserves! It has shiatzu massage and heat, if desired. It has different “programs” and strengths so it’s not just the same thing over and over. I always have really tense shoulders and neck so I start with my shoulders/upper back and then put it around the back of my neck for a while as well. It is really relaxing and a nice little retreat.


Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

These are essential. I have these and love them immensely. It may seem odd to have on a Mother’s Day list BUT hear me out (pun intended). I’m a stay-at-home mom of 3 boys, 4 and under, including twins. With their chaos and constant want for kids’ music, I often need a little escape. With these Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds I’m able to have an earbud in my ear to listen to an audiobook, music, a podcast, whatever I want, AND still be able to listen to them and help if needed. This has helped my life immensely. Seriously.

I still give my kids my undivided attention all the time but sometimes mom needs a break, even when she’s in the same room. Most of the time they don’t even notice I have anything in my ear. The cool thing about these is that with a light touch on the earbud I can pause what I’m listening to without having to be near my phone. That way I can quickly react if they need me by going to them and simultaneously pausing what I was listening to.

I also use these when the twins are napping and my eldest is having quiet time in the afternoon. With these, I can listen to TV in one ear and still hear with the other in case someone wakes up from a nap and needs me.

Beautiful Mom Necklace and Preserved Rose

There are many different variations of this preserved rose in a box with a necklace for Mom, but this one is my favorite! The necklace is on an 18″ chain that is nickel-free and hypoallergenic. The text reads, “I love you to the moon and back.”


Slippers

These slippers are a favorite among the women on my mom’s side of the family, especially my mom. Come to find, I love them too. They are comfortable, lightweight enough you can put them in a purse and bring them with you when you visit someone else’s house (as my mom does), yet thick enough they’ll keep your feet warm.

The Isotoner slippers come in different colors and and have a sturdy, yet flexible sole. They also are machine washable!

I absolutely LOVE this design! It says “Just One Really Tired Mama Bear” and comes in many colors!

‘One Tired Mama Bear’ explains how a lot of us feel as moms. Let people know that even though you’re tired, you’re still a mama bear and will always love and protect your kids. This comfortable and soft shirt makes for a great Mother’s Day gift or any day gift for tired mama bears anywhere!

Mama Rainbow Shirt

Any mama will love this soft, comfortable, relaxed fit yet not frumpy Mama Rainbow shirt to pair with leggings, shorts, jeans, or more!

This Bella Canvas brand shirt is soft, made with 100% cotton and has a relaxed fit, yet not sloppy looking. I noticed that other shirts would make me look sloppy or ‘boxy’ if it was a basic t-shirt that is cheaper, but this Bella Canvas style shirt has become my favorite! I’ve ordered many of them in different colors and with different designs and always feel my best while wearing them. Seriously. 

I feel good about supporting the Bella Canvas brand because they are Eco Friendly and don’t use sweatshops at all!!

Mama T-Shirt

This Mama women’s relaxed t-shirt is a perfect addition to her wardrobe. She can wear it with leggings, jeans, shorts, and more! She’ll love that she’s able to plainly share her Mama status even when her kids aren’t with her.

This Mama shirt is made out of 100% combed and ring-spun cotton, is pre-shrunk, and a relaxed fit so she can feel comfortable in it. I have this shirt and love how it feels and fits (and I’m a mama with more than a few extra pounds on my tummy).
