May 8, 2023

It’s a universal truth that moms are the heart and soul of families. Mothers are the glue that keeps everyone together, the well-oiled machine that keeps the household running smoothly, and the soothing hands that wipe away tears. Mother’s Day is the one day of the year dedicated to showing moms the appreciation they deserve, and we know that everyone wants to give the special mom in their life the perfect present that says, “Thank you for everything that you do.” With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we’ve rounded up a list of thoughtful gifts that she’ll actually love and use—even if she insists she doesn’t need anything.

1. Toki Mats Support Pillow

From tummy time to lumbar support to feeding support, this multi-use support pillow does it all.

Honest Company Self-Care Gift Kit

Even if you were deeply devoted to skincare before parenthood, almost every form of self-care goes out the window in the first few weeks (or even months!) of becoming a first-time mom.

This kit made especially for mamas features body butter, body cream, cleansing oil, nipple balm, lip balm, and more so you can nourish your recovering body and make self-care a regular practice again.
