Best Gifts For Mom
It can be a real struggle to find an amazing gift for mom that really conveys how much you love her. Spoil her with something she will love! We’ve got must have gift picks for all different types of moms so you are sure to find the perfect fit and if you still aren’t sure what to get, we’ve got an idea for that too!
For The Trendy Mom
I confess that while I am very practical and not super hooked on brand names, I do LOVE to look put together and on trend. These are my top picks for the mom that likes to look like she’s got it together without breaking the bank on spendy designers!
Kedzie SUNSET SLING
I ADORE this Kedzie Sunset Sling bag! It goes right along with the throwback trend that has our teenagers carrying fanny packs (although they call them bum bags now), BUT it is a step up. It’s fashionable, trendy and practical. It compliments any outfit and can be dressed up or dressed down.
It has just the right amount of room for your essentials without being bulky. The vegan leather is soft and luxurious and the interchangeable straps let you customize it to mom’s style! Definitely a top pick for moms that are on the go.
Enough with crazy markups! Linjer’s philosophy is that women should be able to own high-quality, long-lasting jewelry without spending a crazy amount of money. Count me in on that philosophy!!
They make their products with materials and quality specifications befitting of leading luxury brands. However, you will find that their prices are similar to those of mid-market brands selling products made with lower-quality materials.
I own all of the pieces shown above and I am in LOVE with them all. I have even more of their pieces on my “wishlist”. They are well-made, gorgeous and on trend. So go ahead and gift mom luxury (for less!). They have jewelry for every style and they are just stunning. They come in luxurious material and excellently packaged and wrapped just like you’d expect from a luxury brand. Mom will never know you spent less to give her the same luxurious experience!
For The Wellness Lover
If your mom is into health and wellness then we’ve got our top picks for her! I am a natural health practitioner and I’m obsessed with wellness! Here are my faves for mom!
BlendJet 2 serves up big blender power on the go. They’ve created the BlendJet 2 portable blender so you can make anything you want, anywhere in the world — from a mountaintop to your kitchen countertop. It’s easy and convenient to use at home, at work, outdoors, at the gym, in the car, at the beach, on vacation or wherever the day takes you.
We use our BlendJet 2 for everything from detox smoothies to whipping up pancake batter at the Blackstone grill! How cool is that? This little blender is mighty and while I was skeptical, I am now sold. This thing works!
BlendJet 2 makes smoothie-bar-quality beverages, silky-smooth protein shakes, top-shelf mixed drinks and creamy frozen lattes, plus milkshakes, slushies, baby food, dips, dressings, sauces, and so much more.
There’s nothing worse than making a delicious smoothie in your BlendJet 2 only for it to end up on your favorite shirt. That’s why they created the Orbiter Drinking Lid. It’s leak-proof design and one-hand convenience means no more crying over spilled smoothies. So feel free to sip anywhere: in the car, on a bike, while you’re base jumping. Be daring!
Naked shake + naked brownie
At Naked Nutrition, they are committed to shortening the steps between their farms and you. Juice bar smoothies are tasty and convenient, but they’re usually loaded with added sugars. With Naked Shake, you get a similar great taste, but you can be confident that you’re not compromising when it comes to your health. As always, they’ve cut through the clutter and included only the purest ingredients you need.
Vanilla Naked Shake starts with their best-selling pea protein, adds MCT oil, and natural plant-based flavors. The result is a crave-worthy shake that delivers 20g of protein and only 3g of sugar. Naked Shake only contains the premium ingredients you need to maintain optimal energy levels and manage a healthy weight.
Naked Brownie is a high-protein, low-sugar brownie baking mix that starts with their premium whey concentrate protein. Then they add coconut sugar, sea salt, and other natural ingredients to create decadent, guilt-free brownies that’ll help you increase protein intake for more energy, stable appetite, and better post-workout recovery. Easy to make, each serving provides 15g of protein, 9g of sugar, and 230 calories for a balanced and satisfying protein treat.
Treat mom to healthy treats this Mother’s Day so she can stay on track with her health and wellness goals.

MinxNY’s High-Performance MicroFiber BeachTech Beach Towels were inspired by the fast-drying towels used by Olympic swimmers but were also designed to be as practical and effective as possible catering to parents and large families.

In addition to being Super Absorbent and Fast-Drying it’s also compact and easy to carry, when folded, the BeachTech Beach Towel easily fits into any small purse or bag and is similar in size to a Tablet or large SmartPhone.

Body by Honeydew – The Ultimate Luxury Body Pillow
Body by Honeydew is the ultimate sleep companion. Not only does it have an incredibly luxurious and huggable feel, but it also delivers immeasurable health benefits like comfort, support, deeper relaxation and sounder sleep.
Sleeping with a pillow between your knees dramatically improves spinal alignment and promotes sleeping on your side, which helps to lessen tossing and turning throughout the night and significantly improves breathing.
This can greatly reduce or even eliminate snoring and also provides tremendous relief for those who suffer from sleep apnea.
Take a deep breath, snuggle in, and let Body by Honeydew soothe you to sleep and perhaps encourage mom to take a much-needed NAP!!

For the mom who loves cooking or baking these are the best gifts for her. I have to tell you I am in LOVE with these and even on nights when I don’t feel like making dinner, I am thrilled that I own these!
This appliance is my absolute FAVORITE appliance I have ever owned. I am blown away at all the amazing foods that have come out of our ChefMaker and the amazing, effortless job it does at cooking them. We have made everything from whole chickens to steaks to fries in here. It cooks everything to perfection. The best ribeyes I have ever eaten came out of here and my 11 year old made them!! How incredible is that?! I’m beyond impressed and that takes a lot because I’ve tested out thousands of products.
The ChefMaker combines and elevates the features of an air fryer, pressure cooker and sous vide, using its patented CombiCook technology to deliver precise cooking results with the push of a button. Designed with input from master chefs the ChefMaker can automatically adjust moisture, heat and time to cook food of any shape or size to perfection.

I absolutely LOVE Caraway Cookware and bakeware. I have both the cookware and bakeware sets and I actually just purchased a second cookware set for myself so I can have one at my cabin and one at my home. It’s amazing and no-stick without the toxins!
