1. Mind: Upon Reflection Journal For Moms

Journaling is a great addition to your self-care regime.

Sometimes, you just need a place to get your thoughts out. Journaling is a great way to organize your thoughts and find inner piece. There’s just something to be said about pen to paper.

For many people, it is a daily part of their self-care regime. To set your intention for the day, journal first thing in the morning. If you prefer to reflect over the days events, try journaling in the evening.

Imagine everything that happens in the life of a mom. Moms have to manage their emotions, and when the primary caregiver, are also responsible for the widely volatile emotions of their kids. While you love and cherish their kids, it can be overwhelming and draining.

The Upon Reflection Journal for Moms, is a beautiful, soft cover, paperback journal. It provides a few ways for all moms to share their thoughts. There are quotes about motherhood throughout the journal to provide reflection. The writing prompts guide moms to look within themselves to find answers to questions they may or may not know they had. Finally, there are 120, blank, lined pages for her to write freely, expressing anything that is on her mind.

3. Body: Paper Cosmetics

What if I told you there was a way for you to care for the environment while looking amazing? A lot of waste is created in making the things that keep consumers happy. Responsible manufacturing is a fairly new concept as people are concerned about the impact of our lives on the environment.

Thankfully, there are companies that are taking on the challenge of providing products that appeal aesthetically while being sustainable. Enter, Paper Cosmetics. They are a growing company with a great line of aluminum, silicone and paraben free deodorants that smell amazing!

What’s your scent? If you like a fresh scent, with a hint of sweet jasmine and the brightness of citrus, try “The Deep”. Perhaps you’re a little more earthy and would prefer the woodsy and musk scents of patchouli and sandalwood found in “So Hot Right Now.” If neither of those scent profiles appeal, there are more to discover on the site.

Not only that, I want to share The Everything Stick with you. It’s not deodorant, but it’s everything else! Just one little stick does the job of at least 3 different products to moisturize and hydrate your skin. Use it on your face, eyes, lips for a silky, radiant glow.

4. Spirit: Cricut

Nurturing the creative part of yourself is to nurture your soul. Creativity can be expressed in so many ways. My creative passion is writing. My mom loves to knit – something I’ve never been able to pick up. When inspiration strikes, it helps to have the right tools handy to make your vision come to life!

Cricut is one of those brands that is only limited by the breadth of your imagination. The number of things you can do with Cricut products is pretty impressive. Are you a crafter? Interested in putting the personal touch on home décor? Or maybe you’re just looking for a fun, easy way to create fun things to keep the kids busy at home.

If you can dream it, you can make it. Just getting started? The Cricut Joy is a good choice. But, if you’ve been at it awhile, then take a look at the powerhouse, accessories to make your bespoke designs sing.

They even have lighting so you can see your creations more clearly. If your mom has a craft room and doesn’t have anything from Cricut, then you know what to do.

Design Ideas:

  • Wall Art
  • Create Team Shirts
  • Seasonal Decorations
  • Greeting Cards (Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary, etc.)
  • Personalize Home Décor (Picture Frames, Flower Pots, Throw Pillows, Furniture Decals, etc.)

5. Heart: Lemon Drop Gifts

Send a Lemon Drop Box for Mother's Day

Now, let’s talk about the mom that likes a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Her interests and joys are varied so you can get her pretty much anything to make her happy. That may make it easier, or possibly harder, for the gift giver to make a decision.

If that sounds like you, your mom, or a mom in your life, then Lemon Drop Gifts is for you. You can keep things simple with a nice Mother’s Gift Box that contains, the ‘Sweet Grace Flower Diffuser,’ “Loved’ Hand Treatment,’ and your ‘Personal Gift Note.’

Personally, I love The Video Book. It takes personal to another level and is something that can be enjoyed over and over. For a little pampering, The ‘Whipped Soap,’ in the Bath Box is it. There’s even a Pampered Tootsies Box for those tired feet.

A monthly subscription box is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving. The Lemon Drop Box has options for a one-time delivery, or a monthly plan for 3 months or 6 months. You can easily find a little something that mom will enjoy.

Gift Ideas:

  • Stress Free Box
  • Tea Lovers Box
  • Puzzle Box
  • Garden Lover’s Box

In Summary of Self-Care Gifts for Moms

When they say, “It’s better to give than receive,” it’s true. But, in the giving of a gift, you get the pleasure of knowing that you made someone’s day. It feels good to know that you are in someone’s heart and in their thoughts. Hopefully, this list of Self-Care Gifts for Moms is sparking some ideas for the moms in your life.

Before making your gift giving choices this year, take a minute or two, to think about the person you are buying for. Is there something you can get for them they wouldn’t think to get for themselves? Is there something they are passionate about? Do you have an idea that will take them back to a special time/ place in their lives?

No matter what you decide, remember, there’s one things that even the person who has everything would say they don’t have enough of… time. Time is always something that we can afford to give. Even if you’re not able to be there in person, you can certainly find the time to make a phone call.

If you can give your gift in person, do so. After these last few years, spending time together has been limited at best. Make as much of a personal connection as you can. There’s only one of them and just one you.

What do you have planned to honor your mom? Moms, how do you honor yourselves? Share your thoughts and ideas in the comment section.
