12 Best Mother’s Day Gifts for the Mom Who Needs A Break
This morning, I asked my kids and Cortana–when is Mother’s Day?
I wasn’t hint-dropping (this time).
Seriously though, I’ve been a wee bit off my planning game. I just planned out my week, today.
It’s already Monday.
Normally, I like to block out my week in my handy dandy planner at least a couple of days in advance.
Whatever–it’s done now.
When I found out that Mother’s Day is next Sunday (as in, 6 days away), I gasped.
First of all, how have a whole four months passed by so quickly?
Second of all, I need last minute gift ideas.
If you are in the same boat, I gotchu boo.
Here are 12 Mother’s Day gifts for the woman who needs to treat herself.
She doesn’t care if you purchased just the right gift weeks ago, or if you even just slide her a gift card. She needs a break, like, yesterday. The following gifts are great ideas for last-minute shoppers like you and me to encourage mama to take care of herself.

FOR THE NEW MOM (OR THE MOM WHO’S SICK OF MEAL PLANNING)
Get mama a pass on grocery shopping with a Sunbasket gift card. Sunbasket is a meal delivery service that provides fresh and healthy meals right to your doorstep. Choose from Paleo, Mediterranean, Gluten-Free, Vegan, and several other options. This gift is well-suited for families of 4 and less.
FOR THE MOM WHO NEEDS A SPA DAY (WITHOUT HAVING TO FIND A SITTER)
Treat mama to a wellness gift box by Tasu. Each box is full of 4-6 handmade and carefully curated goodies. If she is a wellness junkie and enjoys good skincare, aromatherapy, tea, healthy snacks, and essential oils–she will love her Tasu gift box.
While you’re on this spa kick, set mama up with some bath and body products from Jewelscent. Jewelscent makes candles and bath bombs with ACTUAL JEWELRY HIDDEN INSIDE. Talk about two birds–one stone! Each piece of jewelry is valued between $15 and $7500.
Round out mama’s spa gift with a deep exfoliating mitt from Dermasuri. This mitt is special because you don’t need any other products with it–just water. Mama will enjoy using this reusable mitt to smooth out her skin after a long day.
FOR THE MOM WHO SHARES STUFF WITH HER KIDS INSTEAD OF SNEAKING AWAY TO EAT SNACKS
Get mama a Bluum box–a subscription box for moms and their kiddos. Take out the guesswork and give her some of THE best-reviewed products for babies, toddlers, and their mommies. Products are relevant to the child’s age and stage to ensure you will be satisfied with each box.
Another great box is this one by Epic! Epic! is a digital library for kids ages 12 and under. Keep the kiddos entertained for a little while with books, learning videos, and quizzes and mama will thank you forever! Plus–it’s cheaper than Netflix. Click here to try it for FREE for 30 days.
FOR THE MOM WHO DOESN’T SHARE HER SNACKS
No shame in my game–I don’t always share my snacks. Some treats are for mamas only–like these personal tea makers and flowering tea sets from Teabloom.
What goes perfectly with a cup of tea? How about a good book? If mama is too busy to steal away long enough to flip the pages of her favorite paperback in her favorite comfy chair, why not gift her an audiobook so she can listen while she’s doing housework or taking a walk?
FOR THE MAMA WITH A CREATIVE SOUL
Sizzix is a perfect gift for the mama who loves cards, stationery, and scrapbooking.
Get mama some crafting classes from Creativebug’s extensive library of over 1000 award-winning video classes. If you’re not ready to commit, you can try out 3 months for just $1.
Formerly known as Craftsy, Bluprint offers thousands of high-quality video classes, tons of projects with step-by-step guidance, and all-in-one kits that include everything you need to finish a project. Mama will enjoy sharpening her knitting, baking, and other creative skills. Try a FREE class or two here.
FOR THE MOM WHO IS JUST PLAIN WEARY
Encourage mama to feed her soul with a gift subscription to Faithbox. Every themed box includes a devotional and other quality, uplifting faith-based products.
Don’t forget to pick up a card from Dayspring! Use the promo code SALE20 for 20% off all sale items.
No matter who the mom, she will enjoy any of these gifts! Happy shopping, and Happy Mother’s Day to every mom!
