Time Away

While this isn’t a tangible item, some time away can be a huge hit with stressed-out moms. We just don’t get enough time to be by ourselves. Gift her a day out to do whatever she pleases, or up the stakes and consider booking a hotel room or Airbnb for a night or two away.

She doesn’t have to go far. The point is not necessarily the destination but rather having the time to relax.

She can invite a girlfriend or just take time to be by herself and not having to serve anyone else’s needs. She’ll come back rejuvenated and ready to tackle family life.

I took my own “momcation” this year and can vouch for its benefits.

Technology Gifts

Bath bombs are great, but don’t forget that moms can use technology to help relieve stress in their lives too.

Amazon Echo Smart Speaker

Place one in her bedroom, and all she’ll need to say is “Alexa, help me relax.” Aside from playing soothing music, they can be great for making life a little easier around the house.

If you put smart speakers in strategic places in your house, you can use them as intercoms. No more shouting for the kids to come downstairs for dinner. This trick has saved my voice (and sanity) many times.

Back and Neck Massager

Put some electronic shiatsu power to work relieving tense muscles.

Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones

So she can get her zen on even amidst the chaos. Great quality from a reputable brand; these have served our family well.

Bath Gifts

So many moms don’t make enough time to give themselves a nice long soak. The warm water can wash away troubles and soothe tense muscles. Encourage her to make baths a regular part of self-care with one of these bath-related Christmas gift ideas for moms.

Home Spa Basket

A handmade gift just for her.
