Every now and then, every mom needs to treat herself! As moms care for their little ones, it’s so important to set aside that ‘me time’ to have that time to relax and rejuvenate. It loops into that classic phrase of ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’, and from setting some time aside or treating yourself to a gift, you deserve it moms!
Here are a few ideas of small gifts that you can treat yourself with:
A cute new bag
A handbag is an essential for moms out there. After all, not only are you carrying your own items, but you’re also carrying items for your little ones! So finding a handbag you love but that is also practical is a must. Many moms opt for a crossbody bag, which is practical and yet stylish. You can find gorgeous crossbody bags for women online from shops like Mirta to find your perfect bag!
An espresso machine is one of those incredible investments that you don’t know how much you’ll appreciate until you have it. It doesn’t have to an incredibly expensive one either! If you’re a coffee lover, this makes for the perfect gift to treat yourself to! Your morning coffee will never be the same.
A scented candle is a must to have! It instantly adds to the ambiance of your space and promotes relaxation. Set one or more around your space in your favorite scent, and take some time for yourself!
A neck massager is a tool you will quickly want to use all the time! It helps to relieve tension in your shoulders and reduce stress.
Some new skincare products
Skincare products not only feel luxurious on the skin, but they also are fun to use in some dedicated time to relax, unwind, and take care of yourself and your skin! Whether it is a new face mask, face oil or perhaps even a facial tool, some new products will give you and your skin a boost!
With all there is to juggle as a parent, caring for the home while you’re caring for the kids can get to be an added task that takes a lot. Enter: the Roomba! The Roomba helps you out by cleaning your floors and you can set it to run while you’re not in the house or while you sleep so it’s not in your way during the day.
A pamper day at a spa with a friend
A spa day is perfect for the ultimate relaxation. Have your partner or a babysitter take care of the kiddos, and go out for a day with a friend to just relax and enjoy. Many spa offer a day pass to use their services, and you can select from there which treatments you may want or whether you just want to relax at the pool!
Incorporating self-care into your daily life as well as treating yourself every now and then is an incredible way to benefit your mental health. Especially now during these difficult pandemic days with children at home, where and how you can create time for you or even treat yourself to make the days better is well worth it!
