Moms make the world go round, and Mother’s Day is a great excuse to make a fuss of them (although, really, we hope you’re making a fuss of them every day!) If you’re wondering what to get the mom in your life this year, why not get her something that shows you put a little thought into it? Something more unique than a bunch of flowers or another candle, perhaps?
We’ve put together a list of our top 5 gifts for mother’s day this year that caught our interest. We hope there’s something in there that’s right for your mom too.
SILICONE ANTI-WRINKLE PATCHES
No, you’re not saying mom has wrinkles by gifting her these… You are helping her prevent new ones! We’ve been intrigued by these natural silicone patches for a while now for skin care and have been trying them ourselves. They work by creating the perfect environment for moisture to rise to the surface of your skin and stay there. The verdict? You will notice a visible difference after a few hours of wearing them that, admittedly, will fade with time but we figure that with repeated wear the changes might become more permanent while also, possibly, preventing new wrinkles. Try these decollette patches from SIO.
A COLLAGEN BUNDLE
Seeing as we are on the topic of skin… Why not gift mom a bundle of LonoLife collagen? This powerful little supplement blends perfectly into smoothies, baked goods, coffee, and more and may help her on her path to (even more) beautiful skin, hair, and nails. You can read how collagen helps the body here. We recommend putting together a goodie bag of Unflavored Collagen Peptides (for coffee and smoothies), Coconut Pineapple Collagen Peptides (for cocktails such as this delicious Strawberry Pina Colada…now there’s a Mother’s Day recipe for you!), and Mocha Collagen Peptides (for a tasty Collagen Iced Mocha.)
A SPA EXPERIENCE IN HER OWN BATHROOM
Does the mom in your life love to soak in a bath? Then dial up the spa setting and get her one of these luxury and practical bathtub caddies, complete with a spot for her wine glass, her phone, a book, and some goodies. While you’re at it, throw in a Bathtub Spa Pillow for the ultimate relaxing experience. If you really want to make her feel special, surprise her with a bath already run (with her favorite bath bomb, of course), her new caddy and pillow in place, some petals, a glass of wine, and… (this is the important part) PEACE!
STORY WORTH – An easy way to tell her life story
Moms have stories we don’t know about, and stories we’d like to memorialize. This is where Storyworth shines. When you give the gift of Storyworth to your mom (it’s all virtual, so she will receive it via email), she will receive weekly emails with questions that she’ll reply to with stories about her life that end up in a beautiful bound keepsake book at the end of the year. This is an incredible way to preserve stories, learn things about mom that you never knew, and feel connected to family — no matter how far away they are.
Could your mom do with a little help in the sleep department (who doesn’t?!) Then she will definitely want to try these little The Good Patch Dream Patches that infuse a steady dose of sleep-aid supplements transdermally (through the skin). We’re talking melatonin, valerian root, and hops. All she needs to do is place one on the inside of her wrist, and let the plant-based ingredients do the rest while she sleeps. If it’s daytime energy that she needs a helping hand with, try their B12 Awake Patches, that give just the right boost of B12, caffeine, and green tea extract.
No matter what gift you get mom this Mother’s Day, remember, the gift of your time is almost always top of her list. Picnic outdoors, anyone?
