The Best Wellness Gifts for Your Mum
1. A dependable diffuser
After a day spent taking care of the family and the household, it can be difficult to relax. It can also be hard to gear up for days like this! If your mum is always on the hustle, a high-quality stylish diffuser is one of the most perfect gifts for mother-in-law or mum.
Diffusers gently release natural aromas into the air that can have remarkable effects on the mind, body and spirit. Depending on the oils added, the recipient of this amazing gift can set up the diffuser to help her get revved up for the day ahead or to find some quiet time to relax at the end of it.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving, with a slew of benefits to discover, which is why it’s in first place on our list of the top 10 Mother's Day gift ideas.
2. An eye mask to envy
A must-have for most women, a good eye mask will keep the light out, helping mum get the best-quality beauty sleep she can. It can also help cool this area of the face down, reducing swelling while soothing dryness of the eyes after one too many hours staring at a computer screen.
An eye mask can be a lifesaver after a hectic day or before a long night, and they’re the kind of product that almost everyone lusts after. Because a good eye mask is a luxury item, the woman you’re buying this for may want one but wouldn’t consider getting it for themselves. This makes an eye mask the kind of Mother's Day gift your mum will love.
Eye masks are the perfect gift for the more practical among us. But it doesn’t have to be all utilitarian. You can choose a luxurious eye mask that’s beautiful to match the recipient’s taste, making it gorgeous as well as functional.
3. A yummy yoga mat
Does your mum enjoy doing yoga? Or has she expressed a desire to get into it? If this is the case, a quality yoga mat could be an amazing gift. The best mats protect the joints from impact against hard floors and have a surface with enough grip to keep everything locked in place in sometimes-awkward positions.
If she doesn't do yoga, the mat can be used for stretching exercises, doing floor-based workouts and working on the abdominals. If your mum is active in any way, or wants to become more so, this is the ideal present!
4. Exciting essential oils and blends
Let’s face it, buying meaningful gifts on a set yearly basis can become a challenge, and you may be running low on interesting ideas. When you give essential oils and/or blends, you’ll be offering a present that’s not just inimitably useful but may even open your mum’s eyes to a brand-new world of healthcare rooted in natural products. And they’re something that you can gift every year, as there are over 90 different essential oils available!
The rise in popularity of essential oils in the United Kingdom and abroad has happened with good reason. These highly-concentrated oils originate from plants and have been used for centuries for medicinal and therapeutic reasons.
They can improve mood, promote a profound sense of relaxation and help treat certain types of pain along with many other ailments or concerns, making them fantastic gifts for mother-in-law, your own mum, or anyone you know with a child pulling at their virtual apron strings.
You could create a special DIY massage oil for that special woman in mind by adding a certain essential oil or a few to a carrier oil, or you could create a few different ones in roller ball bottles for her to use topically for different purposes - think stress, pain, ageing skin, or even as a natural and healthy perfume alternative!
You could also combine essential oils and a diffuser to create a dedicated essential oil kit for your mum. Boxing up a premium diffuser, a selection of essential oils, a couple of handpicked blends and a few mists will not only be fun but will make for truly extraordinary gifts for mother-in-law or mummy!
If essential oils top your list of Mother's Day gift ideas, take some time to really think about what your mum needs most in her life. Is she running ragged and not getting enough shut-eye? Then let relaxing and calming oils take centre stage. Is she suffering through long days and feeling utterly worn out by the end of the week? Then consider energising, rejuvenating oils and blends.
A thoughtful gift, this one will get you points for a long time.
5. Heartwarming, high-quality tea or coffee
Giving premium coffee or tea as a gift is another way to give your mum the present of good health. This is the symbolic meaning of the gift of tea in Chinese culture, but it can be taken - and given - literally if you choose carefully what type to give.
Tea or coffee is an amazing item on our top 10 Mother's Day gift ideas for the mum who seems to have everything. You can never have enough wonderful-tasting beverages! You can also expand on this gift idea with cups, mugs, a teapot, a coffeepot or even some home-baked biscuits.
Combine their favourite flavours with your own and you could even make drinking coffee or tea part of the ritual whenever you see each other. Best of all, you know she’ll be thinking of you every time she puts on a pot.
6. An incredible Instant Pot®
Giving someone an Instant Pot® as a present is handing over much more than just a plain old pressure cooker. The recipient of this brilliant gift can use their new Instant Pot® as a meal warmer, rice cooker, sauté pan, slow cooker and even a yoghurt maker. This is a wonderful gift for your mother-in-law, whether she loves or hates spending time in the kitchen! An Instant Pot® will make her day because it will allow her to do so much more in so much less time.
7. A journal to bring joy
A journal, or diary, makes a wonderful Mother's Day gift because it speaks to the mental, emotional, and possibly even spiritual health of the recipient.
There are themed journals available, so you can pick one that will really speak to the woman you’re getting it for. You could get a notebook with a beautiful cover by her favourite artist, a gratitude journal to help her remember all the good in her life, or a travel-themed diary to record her adventures.
Journaling has proven to be good for mental health, so it’s a wonderful wellness-themed Mother’s Day gift.
8. Sensational slippers
When you give someone the gift of slippers, you’re also offering them comfort. There’s nothing quite like wearing a comfy pair of slippers as you do what needs to be done in the morning or relax at home in the evening. Wondering what might be among the best gifts for mother-in-law or mum who has everything? Look no further!
Slippers are worn all year round, so it’s not as if your present will only be used a few months at a time. And if they look good, even better! Your mum won’t need to rush around putting shoes on when that doorbell rings unexpectedly.
Everyone uses slippers too, so it will simply be a matter of getting a type that you know your mum will love.
9. An eco-friendly water bottle
A water bottle that can be used repeatedly is not just for the environmentally-conscious. While it will certainly help to combat ocean pollution and minimise plastic waste, everyone needs to stay hydrated, making a good water bottle the perfect Mother's Day gift idea.
Your mum will love carrying around a stylish bottle, and she’ll certainly remember to drink her 8 glasses a day. Plus, she’ll think of you everytime she takes a sip and feel appreciated.
This kind of personalised gift can be an incredible way to kickstart your mum’s healthier lifestyle or reward her for already investing in her physical health.
10. A wonderful weighted blanket
Giving your mum a weighted blanket for Mother’s Day is a great choice because it helps her to get the rest she deserves. We all need to get quality rest to look and feel our best, and weighted blankets have been designed to promote the most restful sleep possible.
Contemporary research of 2,000+ adults found that almost 40% of them struggled with poor sleeping habits, and women are nearly twice as likely as men to battle getting those ZZZs. As unfortunate as this finding is, the good news is that many mums would benefit from a product that helps them rest properly, making a weighted blanket a pretty perfect Mother's Day gift.
A Mother’s Day gift from the heart
Giving your mum the gift of wellness is easier than you think, and there’s no shortage of gifts that will make her smile.
Whether you treat her to everything she needs for a luxurious at-home aromatherapy spa experience, help her to sleep better, eat healthier or drink more water, Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to spoil your mum in a way that enhances her wellness and improves her life, letting her know how important she is to you.
