Spa-inspired Mother’s Day ideas for women who live—and love—the wellness lifestyle.
When May rolls around every year it’s a time for reflection—on moms that is—and all that they do on the daily. And, while every day should be Mother’s Day, fact is, there’s never been a better time to send her something special that says “I appreciate you.” With just a few weeks to go before Mother’s Day, we present spa-inspired gifts we absolutely know she’ll love. Just tell her the Organic Spa team picked these out for her!
Send her the smells of a favorite spa—and pamper her feet, too
While every spa stocks a signature scent in its guestrooms, not all are created equal. All of which is to say that Mohonk Mountain House’s in-room rosemary mint products from Essential Elements are ones she should have in her tub. They contain pure essential oils of rosemary and mint, a combination used since ancient times to stimulate the senses, reduce mental fatigue and rejuvenate the soul. $22 each; Mohonk. Pair these spa products with Oka-B slides and she’ll feel like she’s overnighting at a spa even if she spends Mother’s Day at home.
Gift her with a relaxing puzzle
One of the best parts of getting away to a spa is letting your mind wander or zeroing in on a puzzle that awaits in a comfy lounge space. In lieu of a spa visit, send her a challenging puzzle like this one, Around the World in 50 Plants. There are 1,000 pieces to put together and a puzzle with the backstory on everything from the tomato plant to the Spanish moss of Louisiana.
Help her grow her own veggies
If the mom in your life has a green thumb but wants to add indoor growing to the mix, consider sending her the new Farmstand Nook, a hydroponic indoor growing tower that grows 20 edible plants, including herbs, lettuces and edible flowers. The sculptural tower comes with digital smart lights, nutrient-rich water and a compact nine-gallon tank.
$699; Lettuce Grow
Add to her summer wardrobe
The crew at Krimson Klover, a “women-powered” Boulder, Colorado-based company, is committed to ethical sourcing and slow fashion. We think everyone should wear skorts—not just spa-goers—and know your mom will love these, too.
$99; Krimson Klover
Give her all she needs for breakfast in bed
Sure, it may be a cliché, but moms need a break in the early AM and that’s why we love the Devoción Coffee x Eleven Madison Home Collaboration, which includes some of this plant-based New York City restaurant’s most beloved signature breakfast items: Buckwheat Pancakes Mix, Peanut Snacking Butter, Eleven Madison Park’s renowned Apple Cranberry Granola and its signature coffee blend from New York-based coffee roaster Devoción. $75; Breakfast in Bed Box. Pair this with the Mother’s Day ‘Mom-mosa’ Bundle from Bright Cellars, a kit that’s sure to please with its sparkling and white wine, mimosa cubes and orange garnishes.
$160; Mother’s Day Bundle
Help her get to sleep
The Gift of Sleep: 50 Tips for a Better Night’s Rest card pack is sure to help that mom you love sleep as soundly as she would during a spa getaway. Topics include what to do if you’re up in the middle of the night as well as what you can do to sleep through the night even if you’re as stressed and overly booked as most moms are. $17; Amazon. And, if your mom needs a little extra comfort 24/7, send her a Hugimal, a 4.5-pound stuffed animal, created, like a weighted blanket, to ease stress and boost feelings of calm. $64; Amazon
Give her an energy boost
Should the mom in your life seek love, protection, prosperity, expression or transformation, look no further than these five gorgeous crystal and 14K gold bracelets, a collaborative collection, The Energy Project, created by C. Grassi, a fine jewelry line, and The Urban + The Mystic, a one-of-a-kind gift box company in LA.
$65; C. GRASSI
We know moms are amazing—here’s one way to show her
Six female-owned fashion and beauty social impact brands and a bestselling author got together to create the ultimate Mother’s Day gift box this year, containing a curated collection of items from CLED Jewelry, Terra Thread, Poplinen, Shea Yeleen, Neococo, Beautyologie and Lynne Twist. She’ll love opening this box of treats and, best of all, 20 percent of sales will be donated to Fair Trade USA.
Scent her bath--and space
Pair a Sprig Bath Bomb with a bottle of Sprig Body & Linen Mist and you’ve got the best gift combo a mom could ask for. This wellness brand, created by the team at Kohler (yes the faucet company!) promises products made of clean and natural ingredients in formulations your mom will love.
