Discover What’s Hot for Self-Care This Year
The Holiday Self-Care Gift Guide for Moms provides a variety of ideas for you or the mom in your life.
For many moms, self-care is an idea rather than an actuality. But if anybody deserves a little pampering and attention, it’s mom.
What’s the benefit of self-care? Enjoying a little “me time” helps in the management of stress levels and maintaining a sense of self outside of being a mom.
Momming, (yes it is a verb) Momming is a full-time commitment of time and attention toward your family. For natural care-givers, giving to themselves often falls to the bottom of the list.
But, once you realize that every engine needs a charge to operate, you may come to understand that, as the engine of your family, the same applies to you. The ideas shared below will be welcomed and appreciated, whether you’re investing in yourself or a mom that you cherish.
Taking time for reflection is a great investment in your mental health and well-being. Moms aren’t afforded a lot of quiet time, so make the time you do have benefit your health and happiness.

It includes quotes of encouragement and writing prompts as well to keep you going. Not a single mom, check out the Upon Reflection Journal for Moms.
You may not realize it, but silence can be a form of self-care. It’s not hard to experience sensory overload. I’ll even argue that it happens frequently when you’re a parent. It sure does for me. There’s a lot of noise in a household of happy kids. Sometimes, it’s hard to find a quiet space to think. If that’s you, create one with the Bose QuietComfort 45 Noise Cancelling Headphones. Lightweight and compactable, they make it easy for you to find some quiet time, just for yourself.
LEGO’s stand the test of time. You played with them as a child and now they are part of your kids lives.

Taking a long soak in the bath tub can be so amazing. But, time and availability can make that hard for a lot of people. Don’t think of a shower as just quick and functional. Showers can also provide relief and rejuvenation. Hot water is a start, but adding a little something, like Cleverfy Shower Steamers transforms your shower into a spa. They are vegan and cruelty free and the scents and essential oils relieve congestion and provide relaxation.
