Momming is hard, like really hard. From temper tantrums to common core math we moms deal with a lot of crap. One day a year though is our day and I want to make that day the best day ever, cue Spongebob montage. Let me give you some ideas for the perfect gifts for the mom that needs “momming made easy”. Here is my Mother’s day gift guide:
Mornings Made Easy
Moms run on coffee, and dry shampoo. You wake up, turn on the coffee pot and pour yourself a cup of liquid motivation. Suddenly you hear the pitter-pat of tiny feet coming down the hall and by the time you remember your coffee, it’s cold. I have two words for you, travel mug. More importantly an Ozark Trails travel mug (it’s really a tumbler but I use it for coffee). I bought myself one for Christmas and it has changed my life. My coffee stays hot for hours, literally hours. I can fix my morning cup of Joe and come back to it 2 hours later and it is still hot!
You can find these at most retailers (bought mine from Walmart) and they are pretty inexpensive. They are super easy to wash and the lid stays put, although I wouldn’t get too crazy and play toss with it. Absolutely a must for the coffee fueled mom.
Breathing Made Easier
Essential oils are a great way to relax, calm yourself or even get motivated. With so many oils by so many companies how do you know which is the best? Glad you asked!! I have been using Jade Bloom oils for years. Their oils are the best of the best. My two personal favorites and the ones that I use most often (daily) are their Kashmir Lavender and their Love and peace blend. When my minis are having meltdowns I take a big ole’ whiff straight from the bottle, and it works! I also love to diffuse them at night, it really helps me to sleep better. The best thing about Jade Bloom is their Oil University. You can learn all about essential oils and earn free oils!
Relaxing Made Easier
When you finally have the kiddos tucked into bed and you have a moment to, relax. Why not unwind with a good book? I am a book lover and I read nearly every night. I found the most unique book subscription box. It is called Once Upon A Book club and it is amazing! What si so unique and different about this particular subscription box, you may be wondering.
A unique reading experience! Each month you’ll receive a book (can be paperback or hardcover) to read, a 5″ x 7″ quote print, along with 3-5 corresponding gifts to match a quote/item mentioned in the book. Each individually wrapped with a page number. Readers, open the gifts as they finish the corresponding page. The experience is unforgettable! It makes the reader feel as if the book is coming to life!

Reading is already fun but when you add gifts that correspond to the book it takes it to a whole other level. I was absolutely blown away by every aspect of this box. From the box itself (it looks like a book!) to the way that the contents were presented.
The book itself was such an enjoyable read and I finished it in no time. The whole experience left me wanting more, so I am going to be subscribing. You have a choice of YA (young adult) and adult boxes. Prices range from:
- Monthly: $34.99
- Three Months: $100.99
- Six Months: $199.00
- Twelve Months: $390.00
You can learn more about their pricing and shipping rates by visiting Once Upon A Book Club.
While I am reading, or just winding down in general, I love to light a few candles. Another wonderful subscription box that feed my love for all things wax (candles) is Vellabox. They send you a box of artisan candles every month. The candles come from the finest American candle makers.
Bliss. The ultimate comfort experience. When you receive your first Vellabox your senses will awaken. We curate a perfect combination of the highest quality candles and handpicked products that complement your candle – Non-toxic, lead free, hand poured, from the best companies in the country.

I received a Verbena scented candle from Wickmeaway a candle company based in San Diego. Vellabox has been featured in Buzzfeed, Redbook, Esquire and BRIT+CO.
Vellabox offers three plans, so you are assured to find just the right one. They are:
- Lucerna: 10.00 a month (2.00 S&H)One 4oz Candle Per MonthApprox. 25 Hours Burn TimeOne Surprise Gift
- Ignis: 20.00 a month (2.00 S&H)One 8oz Candle Per MonthApprox. 50 Hours Burn TimeOne Surprise Gift
- Vivere: 30.00 a month (plus free shipping) One 8 + 4oz Candle Per MonthApprox. 75 Hours Burn TimeOne Surprise Gift
This candle smelled amazing and burned so clean (because of the soy wax). I am so impressed with this company and the quality of the candles that they sent. Here’s a little tip from a candle lover. When the candle gets to low to be able to burn the traditional way I like to scoop out the wax and use it in my wax warmer. Please use caution when burning candles and never leave unsupervised.
