Day in and day out, busy moms – both stay at home and working – find themselves immersed in family life. Their lives revolve around play time, extracurricular activities, meals and bedtime routines. One day of the year you get a chance to show your appreciation to that busy mom in your life. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift, consider these innovative options for that on-the-go superwoman.
Soft or Silky Robes
It’s rare for busy moms to take some “me” time and just soak in a hot bath. However, you can present that special mom with a terry cloth, silk or flannel robe so she can enjoy a few minutes of pampering each time she gets out of the shower. Choose a style and color that showcases her personality so the gift seems personal and fun.
As a busy mom, it’s likely she wants to block out some noise and regroup throughout the day. Present her with a pair of Bluetooth or noise-canceling headphones for Mother’s Day. Whether she is waiting in the carpool line, rocking out during her lunch break or cleaning up the toy room, headphones give her a chance to listen to her favorite music or podcasts to escape the stress that surrounds mom life.
Offer mom a therapeutic way to manage stress, reduce anxiety and even assist with medical conditions she may be struggling with on a daily basis. CBD products are available in a variety of forms and offer therapeutic properties to help mom slow down and manage daily life in a productive and positive manner.
A Day at the Spa
If anyone needs a chance to pamper herself, it’s mom. Book her a massage, facial, manicure, pedicure or cosmetic procedure so she can feel like a queen for the day. Many spas offer packages so she can enjoy some pampering on a month-long or year-long basis.
Designer Totes and Bags
Busy moms must be prepared and what you’ll likely find is that they are carrying around large totes and handbags that contain pacifiers, diapers, toys and more. Let mom know she is appreciated by giving her a designer tote or bag to dress up her day. She can feel special and beautiful with a handbag that showcases her personality and holds all of her necessities.
Coffee and Beverage Holders
Caffeine is often a necessity for busy moms, so give her a reason to indulge in cold beverages or coffee each day with personalized coffee mugs or cups. Add a personal message or purchase a mug or cup that has the kids’ photo embedded on the front.
While moms don’t expect to be pampered or even recognized for all that they do, at times – especially on Mother’s Day – give her a dose of love with just the right gift that shows you care.
