Your mom has been spoiling you your whole life —it’s time to flip the switch and spoil her. Actually, if you’ve waited this long, it’s really overdue. These gifts for working moms will pamper her mind, body, and soul. Just what she needs.
The best gifts for moms are the ones she’ll never buy for herself. So, let’s get mom pampered – mind, body, and soul.
Inward Breathwork – An Excellent Gift for a Mom who has Everything
With your mom working so much, it’s safe to say she might have a little stress or anxiety. So why not get her a subscription for Inward Breathwork, a guided breathing exercise website – on demand and live classes are available.
Not only does it help reduce stress, it will enhance her mood, help her sleep, and boost her performance throughout the day.
Breathwork isn’t some hippy-dippy kind of exercise. It’s backed by science.
When you take a deep breath and hold it, the carbon dioxide in your body increases. Your brain becomes more oxygenated and decreases the feelings associated with stress. It’s a win-win and what Inward Breathwork is all about.
Plant Therapy – Essential Oil Gifts For Mom
All essential oils are relaxing gift ideas for working moms. You really can’t go wrong with any aroma you choose.
This Happy Spring essential oil bundle will transport mom to her happy place. The set comes with Rainy Days, Fresh Picked Citrus, and Fresh Meadow essential oil blends. Three gorgeous spring scents minus the allergies = a happy mom.
All three springy oil blends are uplifting yet calming, refreshing, and revitalizing.
The set comes with a Passive Lotus Diffuser making it simple. All she needs to do is apply 5-6 drops of one of her favorite scents and enjoy the aroma as it passively diffuses the oil throughout the room. The diffuser is small, so it’s perfect for her desk or where she is doing her Inward Breathwork.
And if you don’t think she will like that, Plant Therapy has a list of unique Mother’s Day gifts so you can check out those!

Organic Bath Bombs – No Bath is Complete Without Them
Bath bombs are all the rage right now.
This all-natural, organic and vegan bath bomb set will lull mom into the relaxation she needs. As she drops the ball into the water, the bath bomb will fizz and release a beautiful scent as it dissolves.
Ingredients like shea butter, essential oils, and clay promote healthy moisturized skin. And the all-natural color won’t stain the tub or her skin, so mom won’t look like a blueberry after her bath.
Candles That Give Back – An Ideal Gift for a Mom Who Doesn’t Want Anything
Benevolence candles “shine a light on darkness.” A portion of every candle purchase goes to a charity that works to stop the spread of human trafficking.
But besides all that goodness, each candle is highly scented with aromatics. They are hand-poured using essential oils and natural soy wax. They’re free from all the bad stuff like paraffin and other toxins many candles contain.
If that wasn’t enough, the sleek packaging looks luxurious before she even opens the box. It’ll be gorgeous on her desk or bathtub caddy.
Candles are great for hard to buy for working moms because who doesn’t like a candle? And one that gives back to a very worthy cause is even better.
