We wanted to let you know that if you chose to purchase one of the items featured in this post, we may receive a small commission for it.

As moms, we dedicate our time and energy to caring for our children and our families. We wear many hats, and our lives can be defined by how much we give to others. Mother’s Day comes along once a year, and we deserve to feel special on that day. Homemade cards and gifts, extra snuggles, and special outings are all wonderful and memorable, but Mother’s Day can also be an opportunity for self-care.

Moms should not feel guilty for treating themselves on a once-a-year holiday honoring our selfless work throughout the year. There are small gifts that we can treat ourselves to because we deserve them. Here are 10 gifts to treat yourself to this Mother’s Day:

Espresso Machine

A mom’s morning can often feel like we are sprinting our way through a marathon as we get everyone prepared for their days. There’s nothing like quality caffeine in a quick and efficient way to help us get going. An espresso machine will start your day right, which means the whole family’s day gets started right as well.

Audiobooks Subscription Service

We would all be rich if we had a nickel for every time a mom friend mentioned she wished she had more time to read like she used to. With an audiobook subscription service, you can listen to books in a way that works for you while you mom taxi, commute to work, or rock your child to sleep (thank you, earbuds!). Get back into reading and small, healthy escapes via audiobooks!

Acupressure Mat and Pillow Set

Whether you’re hunched over a computer, a nursing baby, or both, we can all use a bit of stress and tension relief. We might dream of weekly acupuncture appointments, but at the very least, we can bring acupressure to the comfort of our own home with acupressure mats and pillows. They are said to better your sleep, lift your energy, and improve circulation, so you can’t go wrong.

Neck and Shoulder Massager

Nothing says self care like making time for a massage. That massage feels even better if you can sit on your own couch and receive a Shiatsu massage with heat while you binge on Netflix. A heated neck and shoulder massager can help you wind down every night even after the busiest of days.

Stainless Steel Tumbler Cup

On a beautiful day, treat yourself to a long walk with a friend. You can enhance that walk by relaxing somewhere with a beautiful natural view and a vacuum-sealed tumbler cup to hold whatever decadence you would like to indulge in at the perfect temperature. Whether it’s coffee, ice cream, or wine, these tumblers make traveling with a treat easy.

Air fryers have become all the rage. How can you go wrong with quick and easy dinners that are also healthier for the entire family? You know you’ve been curious about this new trend for cooking, and Mother’s Day is the permission you’ve been waiting for to try it

Instant Photo Printer for iPhone

We take thousands of pictures of our families, but how often do we actually get around to printing and displaying them? With an instant photo printer for your phone, you can feel productive about displaying those happy memories that you have worked so hard to facilitate.

Fitness, Sleep, and Heart Rate Tracker

Moms cut their own time short to focus on the many hats that they wear, but with a little help, we can prioritize our health, fitness, and sleep more. Gifting yourself with a daily health snapshot and a place to work towards goals is something we all deserve.

Light Therapy

When we sleep better, we are better and healthier moms. Staring at the screen of a computer, completing last minute chores at night, and always being on call for our children don’t lend themselves to deep and relaxing sleep. With the help of light therapy and a sunrise alarm and sunset fading night light, we can count on a much better night’s sleep.

Weighted Blanket

If only we could take away the racing mom mind that reminds us of all we have to do as we fall asleep… With the help of a weighted blanket, we actually can. This is a comforting way to reduce stress and anxiety and a well-deserved treat.

No matter which one you choose, be sure to treat yourself this Mother’s Day. You deserve it!
