10 Best Wellness Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, which means many of us are searching for the perfect gifts to surprise our mothers. Plus, if you’re like me, then you’re looking for the best and most unique presents that nobody will think of buying.

That leads me to ask: what is the perfect Mother’s Day gift? And the answer—-helpful something or something healthy.

Let’s help our moms achieve those summer bodies and healthy lifestyles by getting them the most fun self care and healthy gifts.

Healthy Self Care Gifts for Mothers Day

Here are a few of my favorite places to shop for self care packages

2. Fitness Equipment

With everything slowly reopening, everyone is looking forward to having a great summer. That means it’s time to get in shape and to prepare our bodies for the summer weather. Fitness Equipment makes the perfect gift for moms who want to get back into shape for the summer. There are many different types of fitness equipment that are well-suited for women of all ages, sizes, and physical abilities.

Here are some fitness equipment gift ideas you should consider

  • Yoga Matt
  • Dumbbells
  • Resistance Bands
  • Ab Roller
  • Boxing Gloves

3. Fitness Clothing

Similar to fitness equipment, clothing that allows you to heavily workout and breathe are greatly appreciated. If your mom is planning on getting fit this summer, then consider helping her to dress correctly. That way, she can effectively reach her health goals.

Here are the fitness brands I recommend

  • Fabletics
  • Gym Shark
  • Athleta
  • Luluemon
  • Adidas
  • Nike

4. Bullet Journal Kit

Even superheroes need to take time off to take care of themselves. While most of our moms have the extraordinary power to complete multiple tasks at once, all while caring for the household, they rarely take any time off to care for themselves. Help your mom to practice emotional and mental self care by buying her bullet journaling kit. Bullet journals are great for writing out your thoughts and getting creative. It might just be the gift needed to help her heal from those old wounds.

5. Oil Diffuser and Essential Oils

You can never go wrong with buying mom an oil diffuser and some essential oils. These are great for helping her unwind after a long and stressful day of work or caring for the children. There are so many places that sell oil diffusers, and they have tons of scents. You can easily shop for one online or make your essential oil by distilling fresh herbs beforehand.

Here are some of my favorite places to buy diffusers and oils from

6. Weighted Blanket

Weighted Blankets are the best mental health gifts. It reduces anxiety and relieves pressure on the body, making it easier to sleep at night. If your mom is constantly stressed or doesn’t usually sleep well, you should buy her a weighted blanket.

7. Mental Health App Subscription

Subscriptions make great Mother’s Day gifts for that person who needs healing from past trauma or finding the time to care for themselves. Moms are great, but they sometimes forget that their mental health needs are equally as important as their children and spouses’ needs. So, if you’re considering buying something to help her, then here are my favorite mental health apps and sites with subscriptions available.

  • Headspace
  • Calm
  • Zinnia Journal App

8. Bath Salts

A hot bath can do wonders for stress relief. With that suitable bath salts, your mom can turn any bad day into a good one in the blink of an eye. Upgrade your mothers self care routine with the most luxurious and best smelling bath salts you can find. There are so many great brands you can choose from.

Here are my favorites

9. Air Purifier

Air purifiers make the perfect present for moms who suffer from severe allergies, asthma, or other respiratory illnesses. These are designed to make the air healthier by removing everything from plant pollen to air pollution. Most major retailers sell these, but the best air purifiers are on Amazon.

10. Skincare Subscription Service

Having a proper skincare routine is essential. It allows us to get rid of dirty or dead skin cells, which leaves your skin radiant, healthy, and glowing. Help your mom feel more youthful by purchasing a subscription to some of the top beauty and skincare services.

Here are some places to consider.

  • IPSY

Where to Find More Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

If you’re not into the holistic or healthy lifestyle, that is okay. There are plenty of places to search and shop for Mother’s Day gifts. If you’re looking for additional inspiration, I recommend checking out Pinterest and Instagram or in women’s magazines for potential presents. If you’re looking for something unique and handmade, then go on Etsy.

I hope this helps. Good luck with your shopping!

I hope you enjoy reading my blog and this journey through my headphonesthoughts each day.


  1. Thank you for this useful list. There’s a lot of lists out there around this time but you’ve managed to list a few options that I hadn’t considered at all. I will definitely look more into the oil diffuser and essential oils option. Thank you!

  2. Nice suggestions – Mothers Day in the UK was back in March but will remember these for next year, particularly like the homemade self-care package x

  3. Be careful with fitness equipment and gear, you don’t want to be insulting someone by suggesting they need to lose weight. Make sure it’s something they’d want first

  4. A personalised self-care package would be amazing, not only in terms of gifts but also the thought behind it – great suggestions, thank you for sharing!
