We all want to give our moms a really lovely gift on Mother’s Day, but the old standbys — a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers — can feel a bit clichéd. The best Mother’s Day gifts are creative and thoughtful, and keep both your mom’s interests and personality in mind. So to help you brainstorm, we put together a list of gifts for moms who try to live a healthy lifestyle — and because we all love that free two-day shipping, each of these selection is available on Amazon, too.
For the Mom with Zero Time for Self-Care: ZenTyme Moments Luxury Shower Steamers
There’s nothing better than the gift of relaxation, but a lot of moms just don’t have time to hit the spa (even if you were to give them a super lovely gift certificate). In fact, most of the moms we know don’t even really have time to take a bath now and again. That’s what makes these shower steamers a fantastic solution, since they provide a spa-like aromatherapy experience right in your home bathroom, but using one doesn’t take any longer than a regular shower. They’re made using totally natural essential oils like lemongrass, lavender, and eucalyptus, so even the most mundane part of your favorite mom’s routine can feel more special.
For the Healthy Snacker: Laumière Gourmet Dried Fruit Superfood Collection
We love this dried fruit collection because it’s a super healthy play on the traditional box of chocolates that feels seriously luxurious but comes in at a pretty reasonable price point. That’s a combination we don’t often find together. The packaging is very elegant, and each individual treat looks like a tiny gem. This box contains Matcha Quinoa Energy Bites, Dates with Pine and Chia Mélange, Apricot Flax Seeds Petite, and Berry Açaí Figs.
For the Green of Thumb: Back to the Roots Organic Mini Mushroom Grow Kit
Is this a quirky mother’s day present? You bet. But for every five people reading this and shaking their heads, thinking, “Why would you get a mushroom grow kit for someone for Mother’s Day?” there’s one person who’s already added it to their cart because they know the mom in their life is going to absolutely adore it. Hey, sixth person with the mushroom-loving, green-thumbed mom: we see you.
For the Skincare Obsessed: Eminence Organic Calm Skin Arnica Masque
So here’s the thing: just because a skin care product is organic doesn’t mean it’s necessarily effective. We love the Eminence brand generally for making extremely high-quality, functional skin care that’s also organic, and this mask is one of our very favorites. It works on absolutely all skin types — in fact, it’s especially good for those with sensitive or redness-prone skin — but really, it’s simply a soothing mask that’s phenomenally hydrating. The arnica-infused formula helps reduce inflammation, and feels incredibly relaxing to apply, too.
For the Rockstar Chef: Kyoord “The Governor” Limited Edition Olive Oil
Olive oil consumption has been linked to longer, healthier lives. Naturally, we all want the moms in our lives to live as long and healthily as possible, so for the mom who loves to cook, give her an olive oil she probably wouldn’t spring for herself, like this limited-edition variety made from Lianolia olives from the island of Corfu. This particular olive oil has been awarded prizes for being the global leading olive oil with the highest concentration of oleocanthal, an antioxidant that destroys unstable, harmful elements in your body.
For the Project Lover: Jun Scoby Kombucha Kit
Kombucha is a fermented tea drink traditional to China, and studies have proven its antioxidant, antibacterial, and antidiabetic properties, as well as its ability to reduce the concentration of cholesterol. You can find it in plenty of U.S. grocery stores these days, but what’s way more fun than drinking this healthy beverage? A DIY kit that lets you make your own kombucha from scratch. Who knows, maybe she’ll kick off a new hobby.
For the Tea Lover: The Tea Spot Pyramid Tea Sachet Collection
For the mom who enjoys relaxing with a soothing cup of tea at the end of a long day, she’ll really appreciate upgrading from her regular boxed grocery store tea. This sachet collection contains 16 biodegradable pyramid tea bags from a variety of top tea-producing regions, including caffeine-free herbals, black teas, green teas, oolong, and white tea.
