The Best Gifts for the Moms in Your Life If All They Want to Do Is Relax


Briena Sash/Wellness Stock Shop

Mother's Day is just around the corner, which means it's time to do something extra nice for the moms, grandmas, or mother figures in your life. Sure, you don't need a day to motivate you to treat them right, but consider this a prime time to spoil those mother figures a little bit more than usual. And honestly, what better way to do so than by gifting them with something that is relaxing, rejuvenating, and all about that TLC.

That's what I'm planning on doing for my mom this year. Forget the chocolates or jewelry or mugs; I'm only getting my mom something that contributes to her self-care routine. Still in need of a gift? Take a look at what I'm eyeing for my own mom this year below.

This fragrance sampler set is good to gift solo or to pair with a bouquet. It contains five vials of Jo Malone's signature scents: Wood Sage & Sea Salt, English Pear & Freesia, Peony & Blush Suede, Wild Bluebell, and Nectarine Blossom & Honey.

If your mom hasn't been introduced to adaptogens yet, why not share these with her? The starter pack contains all of Moon Juice's popular adaptogenic blends that target specific needs, like aging, focus, hormonal balance, energy, stress, and sleep.

Sweet dreams are ahead for Mom. A silk pillowcase just feels so luxe to sleep on, but it also has some added benefits, such as protecting the skin and reducing damage to the hair.

This extra-soft wrap is great to wear when running errands or when you're on the move. That's because not only does it have the softest texture, but it's also sweat-wicking and quick-drying.

My mom loves her foot soaks, but she normally uses her bathtub or just a small foot tub for them. This device will upgrade her foot-spa time—it has massage water jets and raised nodes at the bottom to soothe tired feet. Plus, it's got a removable pumice stone to remove calluses.

Treat them to this luxe set that comes with La Mer's hydrating essentials. They get the Regenerating Serum, Hydrating Infused Emulsion, Eye Concentrate Eye Cream, and Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream—a $270 value for a $170 price tag.

These candles will transport anyone to a tropical destination. They have scents of watermelon, coconut vanilla, and mint mojito.

A blend of cashmere and merino wool, these blankets are perfect for getting cozy, whether they're taking a nap or reading a book.

Whether your mom is new to aromatherapy or a seasoned vet, she'll appreciate this set of essential oils. It contains Vitruvi's popular oils: eucalyptus, spruce, lavender, and grapefruit.

It may seem cliché to get your mom a robe for Mother's Day (or any kind of gifting occasion), but trust me—she'll love this one. Made of 100% Turkish cotton, it manages to be both soft and lightweight at the same time.

This limited-edition set from editor-favorite Vintner's Daughter contains the über-popular Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum, plus an oolong radiance tea blend.

A weighted blanket can be so comforting, helping you sleep better and feel calmer.

This set contains the best of Aromatherapy Associates' botanical and essential oil products: relaxing bath and shower oil, reviving shower oil, a candle, and a de-stressing muscle gel.

To reap the benefits of aromatherapy and essential oils, the easiest way to do it is through a diffuser. This one from Vitruvi is cordless, so it can be moved from room to room.

Pretty much everyone who has used this body oil has given it rave reviews, so it's on my gift list. The lightweight body oil has been soaked in barrels of botanical oils for six months and then infused with açaí, babassu, and passion-fruit oils. It helps firm the skin, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, and hydrate.

This device can be used for muscle recovery after workouts, but it can also be used for any other aches and soreness—like when you've been sitting the whole day.

Treat Mom to some cocktails with this kit. It has four bottles to make delicious spritzes: lemon lavender, citrus flower, pomegranate rosemary, and rose rosé. Each bottle can make two to three cocktails.

If they're glued to their phone or tablet, they'll appreciate this digital detox bath soak. It detoxifies, eases tension and stress, relaxes, and stimulates circulation.

Who wouldn't want to slip their feet into these cozy and soft shoes at the end of the day?

Tired eyes are no match for this mask. It's made of rose quartz crystals that create a cooling effect to reduce puffiness and soothe the eye area.

A humidifier isn't the flashiest gift, but it's definitely going to get used often. This one has cutting-edge airflow technology and UV lights that kill bacteria, mold, and viruses. It also doubles as a diffuser.
