Home Business Magazine Online

With May Mental Health Awareness Month in full swing, why not take a moment to celebrate the hardworking mompreneur in your life? Give her a gift that will allow her to take a moment to breathe, reflect and rest. When mompreneurs can take small moments throughout their day, it can lower stress and contribute to greater maternal mental wellbeing. Below are fantastic gifts for the mompreneur in your life:

Comfy Pajamas & a Robe

Comfortable, breathable pajamas and a robe are essential postpartum while you are recovering from birth and they continue to provide comfort beyond the baby years. love 100% cotton, long lasting pajamas from Hanna Andersson. The bonus is you can get matching pajamas for the whole family, if that will bring mom even more joy. A soft cozy robe feels great while relaxing, after a shower, or anytime. I love the robe from Storq that is soft but not too hot.

Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets can give mom a big hug , a drop in stress and deep rest when she needs it. I love breathable knit blankets like Bearaby.

Herbal Tea

A nourishing cup of tea allows moms to take a mindful moment to feel warmth, and benefit from the herbs. I love the herbal teas from L’AB like Motherwort and Joy .

Lavender Epsom Salts

For mothers who enjoy a bath or a foot soak, I love lavender Epsom salts. This gift invites mothers to take a moment for themselves with the calming benefits of warm water, lavender and magnesium. I love Dr Teals.

Beeswax Candle

Adding a candle to a moment to drink tea, have a bath or foot soak can bring greater mindfulness, ritual and relaxation. Look for 100% beeswax candles.

Water Bottle

A great water bottle can help mothers stay hydrated, which boosts mood and wellbeing. Bonus if it has a straw as many mothers find it easier to drink more with a straw, take a look at Corkcicle.

Insulated Coffee or Tea Mug

For mothers who are coffee and tea lovers, we know how hard it can be to have a warm drink. Small sips of warm coffee or tea can be one of the best parts of the day! Check out an insulated coffee mug from Corksicle.

Earbuds & a Subscription to a Mindfullness App

Taking time to practice mindfulness is one of the best ways to build maternal mental wellness. I recommend trying a few apps to find your favourite. You can start with Calm, Headspace, or Gentle Birth.

Journal w/ Pastels

Journals are an amazing resource for maternal mental health. Moms can use them for: to do lists, processing events and emotions, listing worries before bed, writing down memories with baby, free writing, or anything that feels good. Moms can use pastels to draw in their journals for some art therapy. I love a Moleskin
