Mother’s Day is the time of the year where your mum truly deserves the best. But what do you get the person who for most of us, has looked after and cared for a majority of our life? Finding the right present for mum this Mother’s Day can be hard. Luckily, we have a list of great gift ideas for mum – gifts that are thoughtful and not too hard to get your hands on.
What makes our Mother’s Day gift ideas different? Our list focuses on gifts that will help your mum live a healthy life of wellbeing. So if you’re interested in finding a healthy live gift that she’ll love, read on!
Gift Idea 1 – Journal
A good quality journal, with leather covers and lined paper is a great wellbeing gift for mum. Journaling is a great way to express one’s self and the act of putting pen to paper can have great benefits for mental health. These include:
- Writing down thoughts to reduce stress
- Creating lists and calendars to improve memory
- Set goals and keep track of them.
Journals are easily accessible and come in many different forms, so that you can pick the journal right for your mum.
Gift Idea 2 – Diffuser
Are you familiar with diffusers? Diffusers take essential oils and diffuse or disperse them into the air. They come in different sizes making them capable of changing the air of small rooms to entire homes.
By diffusing essential oils, you release both their sweet aromas and their benefits into the air. Some benefits include reducing anxiety, boosting immune systems or better sleep – depending on the essential oil used.
Gift Idea 3 – Scented candles
If diffusers are off the list but you still want to give mum the benefits of aromatics and fragrances, you can opt to give her scented candles. Apart from the obvious benefit of making a room smell great, they also have additional pros that make them a great gift.
For example, scented candles can calm nerves, help people relax and unwind or improve memory. They’re widely available as well so you should have no problem finding one this Mother’s Day.
Gift Idea 4 – Quality water bottle
Sometimes mum can be so busy that they forget to stay hydrated throughout the day. By giving your mum a brand new, high-quality water bottle you remind her to make sure she does stay hydrated, while giving her something to drink from! There are a ton of water bottles on the market; made from different materials, with different lids and capacities. Do your research before finding the right one for mum!
Gift Idea 5 – Brand new fitness gear
Is your mum the active type? Or maybe it’s about time she starts exercising? Either way, giving her new fitness equipment is a great way to either encourage her to start, or to encourage her to keep at it! Popular fitness gear include:
- Yoga mats
- Foam rollers
- Exercise bands
Gift Idea 6 – Bath salts
Bath salts are commonplace in gift ideas for mum lists and for good reason. They’re easy to find, easy to use and have a ton of great wellbeing benefits. Bath salts dissolve into warm bath water and can have a positive effect on your body include:
- Relieving stress
- Reducing muscle pain
- Alleviating headaches
- Soothing aching joints
Bath salts are the perfect companion for a bath, music and a glass of wine. They can also be bought as a gift set with other bathroom products so you can give mum even more!
Gift Idea 7 – House plants
Have you noticed the growing popularity of house plants recently? Now is the perfect time to introduce your mum to the hobby of having her own jungle of home greenery! The great thing about house plants is that no matter what kind of home you have, there are plants suitable for you. From low maintenance succulents to orchids and ferns that require more TLC, your mum is sure to enjoy the greenery and nature that a plant can add to her home.
Gift Idea 8 – Humidifier
While they may be similar to diffusers, humidifiers provide a whole different range of benefits. Humidifiers do exactly what they say – they humidify a room. By doing so, they prevent dryness and allergies, improve breathing and contribute to better sleep and better skin.
The added moisture from humidifiers also benefit house plants, make wood furniture last longer and prevent wallpaper cracks. It’s an overall great gift idea for mum this Mother’s Day!
Gift Idea 9 – Electric massager
Go a step further and truly spoil your mum with an electric massager! Electric massagers provide the same benefits of regular massages:
- Reduce pain
- Improve blood circulation
- Relax muscles
- Improve sleep
- Reduce stress and anxiety
The key benefit of course, is the fact that mum can use her massager whenever she wants, as often as she wants! Electric massagers are also designed to last a long time, which makes it the gift that keeps giving.
Gift Idea 10 – Quality time with the family
Sometimes all a mum can ask for is quality time with loved ones. Life often gets the better of most of us, leaving us little room to spend time with one another. And there’s nothing that represents a healthy lifestyle more than doing so! This Mother’s Day consider taking mum out for a nice dinner or a small get together with the rest of the family.
