The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide


The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide

By: Amanda Huggins


Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we know that finding the right gift for the most important woman in your life can be a bit daunting. Most of us start out the search for something that’s thoughtful, practical, and chosen with love - but admittedly, it can be difficult to find something that ticks all three boxes!

Sometimes, the greatest gift you can give is the gift of relaxation - and who is more deserving of a little R&R than the woman who raised you?

We’ve selected a few of our favorite products that are sure to put a smile on your mom’s face - and will encourage her to take some much-needed “me time” this year.

Gifts to help mom relax & restore

  • Studio Square Bolster - For the moms who are always “on the go”, a soft meditation bolster is just what the doctor ordered. Use a Yoga Block to elevate the area right under the top end of the bolster, and let gravity do the rest of the work! Bonus idea: offer to cook dinner for her - she can use that extra 40 minutes in her day for a little meditation time.
    1. Gaiam Relax Restorative Eye Pillow - A soothing satin eye pillow pairs perfectly with a little down time. The gentle lavender aromatherapy will deepen her relaxation, letting her drift away into dreamland in no time flat.

    Gifts for the working mom

  • USB Aromatherapy Diffuser - Who says work has to be stressful? If your sweet mom is in a cubicle all day, bring the relaxation to her! This USB aromatherapy plug will allow her to let go for a few minutes - even if she’s still at her desk!
    1. Classic Balance Ball Chair - While your mom probably deserves a throne to sit on, this balance ball chair is still quite an upgrade from a traditional office chair. Gift her with a little ergonomic back support, and she’ll leave work feeling better than when she walked in.

    Gifts to help mom feel good

    1. Dry Grip Mat - A fresh, clean yoga mat is the stuff of Mother’s Day dreams. For an added touch, choose her favorite color and pair it with a matching yoga mat towel.
    2. Stainless Steel Water Bottle - We’re pretty sure our moms trademarked the phrase, “Drink more water!!” Show your mom that you’ve been listening all these years with a gift that will help her do the same! Our stainless steel water bottle keeps water cool for up to 24 hours, so she’ll be sipping in style no matter where her day takes her.

    Whether your mom is brand-new to the practice or a seasoned yogi, these mindful gifts are a surefire way to warm her heart and soul.
