Magnesium makes amazing self-care gifts for moms! It not only helps you drift off to sleep but it also soothes sore muscles and is effective for stress relief and relaxation. Many people turn to a magnesium supplement to up their levels without realizing that topical application is a much more effective way for your body to absorb magnesium.
Whether it's a quick foot soak or a full magnesium bath, these Ancient Minerals Magnesium flakes are a sure way to gift a loved one a way to relax and practice some self-care.
7. Amazon Prime Subscription
Amazon might not immediately jump to mind when you think “self-care gifts” but there are so many perks to the membership that it’s something you definitely should not overlook.
Treat your loved one to a three-month membership, and you’ll be giving them the gift of thousands of movies, tv shows, music and Kindle books. Just imagine the endless possibilities to relax and unwind watching a favorite show, spending some quiet time reading a book or even having some quality time watching a movie with friends or a partner.
It all counts as self-care when you gift something that lets your loved one totally forget the world around them.
8. Essential Oil Diffuser
An essential oil diffuser is a lovely way to add a little joy to someone's day and lets them personalize their surroundings to either be calming and relaxed or fresh and invigorating. Whether they need something to send them off into a deep slumber or just want to make their home smell fresh and enjoyable, an essential oil diffuser is sure to be a hit.
This particular diffuser provides a gentle mist without the use of heat and so it is even safe to be used around young children or in the baby’s room.
9. Aromatherapy Essential Oils
Along with the diffuser, gift that special mom in your life with a set of Aromatherapy essential oils to promote focus, relaxation and enhance mood.
10. Beautiful Journal

Self-care isn’t just about relaxation and pampering. One of the best things you can do to take care of yourself is to make sure you drink plenty of water (but that’s not exactly exciting).

Amazon Audible is the audiobook section of Amazon. The selection simply amazing, and subscription gifts make perfect self-care gifts for moms who love great stories but don't have time to read. Give her the gift of pure relaxation in the tub or a hammock without needing to turn pages!
While a planner may not sound like a pampering gift, trust me, it is for that mom who is always slightly disorganized and slightly behind. That constant feeling of “trying to catch up” causes a ton of stress. Help her stay on top of things and feel less stressed at the same time!
This is totally on my own wishlist this year! The perfect gift for the mom who gets sore muscles. This massage gun can relieve the body's soreness through deep and powerful muscle massage after exercise. It helps to restore the body faster, promote muscle repair, promote blood flow and relieve lactic acid. And it feels darn good (I tried it at work)…just sayin'!
