Find the perfect gift for mom this holiday season

11 unique gifts guaranteed to make moms feel pampered

One of the greatest satisfactions I get in life is gift giving.

I get giddy with the excitement that fills me knowing I found the perfect gift for someone who is super important to me. I want the recipient to feel appreciated, loved, and like I understand her.

Over the years I have spent so much time thinking about us and what we can do to take care of ourselves. It’s common for our needs to come last, especially when it comes to self-care and doing things that help us to feel good about ourselves.

That’s why I put together a list of gifts for moms.

Each gift idea was specially chosen to ensure that moms feel special and pampered.

Speaking as a mom, many are items I have purchased, received as a gift, or have been eyeing myself!

Meditation app

One of the best ways we can take care of ourselves as moms is to take some time to slow down and be in the present moment, even if just for a few minutes. The Calm app gives bite-sized chunks of meditation to help you “reduce anxiety, sleep better and feel happier”.

I use this app as part of my morning self-care ritual. The sleep stories were also a lifesaver when I was in the sleep-deprived newborn haze and had trouble falling back asleep after middle-of-the-night feedings.

Adult coloring book

There are some amazing color books now that are specifically for grownups. I’m partial to Secret Paris Color Your Way to CalmPaired with a beautiful set of color pencils, it makes a lovely — and soothing — present.
