Mother’s Day is creeping closer (Sunday, May 13—write it down!) and this year, your mom deserves something more than hurriedly-grabbed bodega flowers and a last-minute card from CVS. Remember, this is the woman who gave you life, girl, so the least you can do is put a little thought into her gift. To help get you started, we’ve hunted down some of the best presents for wellness-obsessed mamas: from clean-burning candles to socially-conscious flowers and more. Keep scrolling!
1. Skylar Coral Candle, $38
This isn’t your ordinary candle: all Skylar candles are natural and clean-burning, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and vegan. The wax is made from a sustainable soy coconut and is crafted by hand in LA. Of course, it smells incredible too—the Coral blend is floral with notes of jasmine, tuberose, and orange blossom.
2. Kaia Naturals Detox Hot Bath, $12
This kit includes two detoxing bath salts to help you sweat out nasties and soak up the skin-loving and muscle-soothing ingredients such as turmeric and mustard seed. It’s an Epson salt-based formula with activated charcoal, which helps to draw toxins and impurities from the body, while apple cider vinegar works to neutralize odor-causing bacteria all while soaking in a hot bath.
3. Saje Aromaom White Ultrasonic Diffuser, $89.95
Saje has a line of diffuser-ready essential oils for just about everything—brainstorming, happiness, relaxation, yoga, and more. Plus, they have the sleek, neutral-toned diffusers to go with them. It’s the perfect gift for healthy moms.
4. Bloom2Bloom Flowers, from $40
Everyone loves receiving flowers, but why not step it up a notch this Mother’s Day by choosing farm-fresh, US-grown flowers from Bloom2Bloom. Some proceeds from your purchase will also go towards supporting the company in designing a teen’s hospital room through @WishUponATeen. Prices start at $40.
5. Tenoverten Nail Polish Trio, $45
This trio makes for a cute under-$50 gift for the natural beauty junkie. The polishes are nontoxic (eight-free!) and long-lasting—they also glide on smooth and streak-free.
6. The Sill Aloe Vera and August Planter, $50
Rather than getting her flowers, visit The Sill and have a succulent delivered. Aloe Vera is an obvious choice for wellness-focused mamas, but most plants (even small ones!) purify and filter nasties out of the air to make her home or office a much healthier space.
7. Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 Sandals, $38
We all know the importance of a well-padded yoga mat to stay comfortable during your practice. With these sandals by Sanuk, they use actual yoga mat material so you can take that comfy feeling with you. These sandals are the perfect to-and-from yoga shoe– easy to slip on and go!
