Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It's your chance to celebrate and honor the special lady/ladies in your life who raised and loved you unconditionally.
If you’re looking for a meaningful Mother's Day gift, there’s still time. We have some great ideas that will make Mom feel healthy, balanced, beautiful, and pampered.
Health & Balance
Let’s start first with physical and mental health and balance.
Motherhood is rewarding, exciting, and inspiring. But let’s be real, it can also be very stressful!
The following gift ideas can help provide women the physical, mental, and hormonal balance necessary to get through the days and weeks with a better sense of calm.
When it comes to relief of stress, one of the most important minerals you can take is magnesium. It is essential for heart and neurological function, energy production, regeneration of liver tissue, and so much more.
More than half of Americans are actually deficient in magnesium. In addition to most people not get enough of it in their diet, deficiencies are exacerbated by chronic stress.
Chronic stress causes increased levels of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. If your bloodstream is flooded with these hormones, it causes magnesium to be released from your cells and removed from the body via urine.
Liqui-Magnesium is a liquid suspension, which helps with absorption. With magnesium, this is especially important. Every time you take a supplement like magnesium in pill form, a certain amount of it gets lost in the digestive process. Magnesium pills/tablets tend to have very low bioavailability, meaning a high proportion of it never makes it to your bloodstream.
But Liqui-Magnesium is predigested, so less breakdown by the digestive tract is required—allowing more of the mineral to be sent to the bloodstream and cells so that it can have a real and lasting impact on health.
Hormones can also affect a woman’s physical and emotional health.Estrolene can help with this. Made with nutrients like vitamin E, red clover, and magnolia bark extract, Estrolene helps to rebalance hormones that could be contributing to unpleasant symptoms like anxiety and hot flashes.Elderberry Comfort can help to take the edge off. It's made with organic ingredients like elderberries, lemon balm, and reishi which are all known for their calming and relaxing properties. This tincture can be taken daily to help reduce stress and anxiety levels. It's also great for boosting the immune system and supporting overall health!
Beautiful & Pampered
Health is obviously important, but what woman doesn’t love to feel pampered one in a while! For gifts that make Mom look and feel beautiful, here are our top suggestions.
Amaki Japanese Tsubaki Anti-Aging Face Oil is a great idea if your mother is a fan of high-quality, yet simple and clean, skin care.
Tsubaki oil has been used since ancient times to restore the look and feel of skin, giving it a more youthful appearance and texture. Amaka brand Tsubaki oil is full of quick-absorbing essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which replenish moisture and elasticity in all types of skin, even extremely dry and mature skin.
In addition, this formulation includes rice bran, argan, jojoba, and sunflower oils, along with vitamin E (which helps counteract the signs of sun damage) and various essential oils.
It’s a full-sensory experience that women will enjoy just on Mother’s Day—but year-round!
And if your mom is into more a traditional gift like flowers, bMaker takes the floral experience to the next level, offering gorgeous dried flowers that can be used for a variety of purposes.
