A Wellness-Inspired Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Gifts for your Mom, BFF, sister, and even YOU!

By: Dominique Michelle Astorino

Moms are nothing short of amazing — they deserve this special day to be celebrated! Whether you’re celebrating your mom, a mother figure, the mama friends and siblings in your life, or yourself, this day is full of female empowerment and gratitude. And while quality time, love, and good company are always at the top of the list, showering the amazing women in your life with a thoughtful gift (or two) is always appreciated! 

And since we’re focusing on motherhood, these gifts are all about self-care. Because, let’s face it, oftentimes moms put everyone else first and leave little or no time for self-care and personal health. Let’s flip that! And remember, mamas — you can (and should!!) treat yourself.

Aside from being a generous gesture, these wellness-inspired Mother’s Day gifts will help keep Mom happy, healthy, and stress-free. Because first off, we all deserve to feel good. And further, in order to provide love and nourishment for others, we have to prioritize our own health and fill up our own cups, too! With that said, let’s get to the fun part — shopping!

Gifts For Your Mom (Or the Mother-Figure In Your Life)

Pique Tea Sun Goddess Matcha ($58) 

These superfood-filled herbal teas are designed to nourish you from the inside out. Every Pique Tea blend is rooted in science-backed research, with therapeutic properties shown to reduce stress, support healthy aging, improve digestion, and enhance skin health. And what Momma doesn’t need all of that?! While there are countless blends to choose from, this Sun Goddess Matcha is packed with antioxidants and botanicals to support glowing skin, healthy aging, and all-natural energy.

Evan Healy Blue Chamomile Day Moisturizer ($48) 

Evan Healy is a botanical-rich all-natural skincare brand that every Momma deserves to be showered with. From serums and oils to butters and moisturizers, there’s something for everyone.

Hyperice Hypervolt Massage Gun ($300)

A splurge for at-home massages and recovery year-round, this targeted recovery tool might be the coolest thing in your mom’s arsenal (of exercise gear, of course). For a more affordable option (that’s equally as splurge-worthy) try the Hypervolt Go! It comes in a cute white color and is a smaller, more portable option.
