Moms want time away and naps, but we also want some gifts that we don’t have to buy and wrap for ourselves.

We work hard all year to put our family’s needs first. Moms deserve a little extra love and adoration when the holidays roll around. So here are some things we’d like to find under the tree this year:

Weighted Blanket

Finally, an affordable Weighted Blanket that we don’t have to feel guilty about topping our wishlist. These blankets can help with managing stress, anxiety, and insomnia. They are perfect for moms who only get sleep for a few hours at a time. So, most of us.

Cooling Gel Pillows

This 2-pack of Cooling Gel Pillows (one for each of you) is perfect for people who are constantly flipping their pillow over to the cool side. Who doesn’t love new pillows? Everyone does. They’re amazing.

Sleep Eye Mask

This Sleep Eye Mask is a great addition to a much-needed nap, while you take the kids for a long drive somewhere. Please and thanks.

Plush Fleece Robe

This Plush Fleece Robe is super comfy and a great excuse not to wear pants. Win-win.

Rotating Waffle Maker

Who doesn’t love waffles? This Rotating Waffle Maker can make four waffles in 10 minutes and is more than 50% off right now. Whipped cream not included.

Thick and Plush Towels

Don’t underestimate our love for new Thick and Plush Towels that haven’t been touched by our sticky kids or washed a million times.

Essential Oil Diffuser

This Essential Oil Diffuser is a great way to keep the air humidified and smelling amazing year-round. I’ll take two for my son’s room alone.

Essential Oils

Essential Oils are perfect for freshening your home with natural scents. (This highly-rated variety pack includes lavender, frankincense, tea tree, eucalyptus, blood orange, peppermint, lemongrass, rosemary, and is a great addition to the oil diffuser!)

L’Oreal Skincare Gift Set

This L’Oreal Skincare Gift Set will go nicely with our time away from the kids and our new robe, while we indulge in a spa day at home.

Slipper Socks

Slipper Socks are perfect for the winter months. Keep our toes nice and toasty or we’ll warm them up on you. You’ve been warned.

Peet’s Coffee

I’m a coffee snob and I LOVE Peet’s Coffee. Their holiday blend is perfect for waking up to on cold mornings, and most of us need it to survive. (Their Big Bang blend is also yummy, and available for Keurig here.)

Heat Color Changing Mug

This Heat Color Changing Mug can make mornings more fun. And it’s a pretty accurate representation of my cold, black soul before my first cup of coffee.

Personalized Photo Canvas

A Personalized Photo Canvas is perfect for anyone who never gets a chance to print and hang their pictures, which is all of us.

Noise-Canceling Headphones

These Bluetooth Noise-Canceling Headphones are perfect for any mom who likes to listen to music while she gets stuff done, as tiny humans run around her.

Mama Bear Necklace

This Mama Bear Necklace is a perfect gift “from the kids.” It’s a sweet reminder that we’re appreciated, and it’s also available in silver.

Electric Tea Kettle

This Electric Tea Kettle is perfect for making tea, coffee, or cocoa in our room or office. Especially if/when we’ve already locked ourselves inside and don’t have access to the stove.

Yoga Pants

These Yoga Pants are super affordable and will be a great addition under the tree since most moms have at least one pair that needs to be replaced.

Stress Relief Aromatherapy Candles

These Stress Relief Aromatherapy Candles are a great addition to a bubble bath along with our new towels. If anyone needs stress relief, it’s moms over the holidays.

No matter what you get the special moms in your life, it’s the thought that counts. But if you want to get moms something they really want, you should probably use this list. And a happy mom is a happy everything.
