Easy Mother's Day Guide: Recipes, Ideas & Gifts
But what a year! It has been crazy from the starting of the year and now I feel like everything has been going to fast, anyone else feels the same way?
It seems like out of the bloom Cinco de Mayo was here, in a Taco Tuesday and this same week Mother's Day! Feels like we are just getting over that Mexican spirit to set the mood with all the flowers and sweets for Mom. Although, I bet that margaritas are also a drink that also could fit into Mother's Day.
Anyways. Mom has been working EXTRA hard this year with maybe kids in the house, cleaning extra mess since everyone is at home, the mom job is endless, let's face it and I have to be honest with you, we don't give her that much credit for all the craziness they can handle.
And for that I decided to create an Easy Guide to Treat Mom this Mothers Day! Let me show you a daily schedule and some of the top things moms want this year.
Mom's top picks:
- Silence and peace
- No cleaning
- Alone time
- Self-Care time
That being said let's start with some gift ideas!
Self-Care and Beauty Gifts
Spa day: Let her have some time to relax and have some time of silence, just to meditate and not to think about the messy kitchen down stairs.
What about some CBD? Since mom is constantly thinking about keeping everything together she might find useful some CBD, this is the brand the I use: Bloom Farms.
600mg is my favorite one
Great for for daily wellness, restful sleep, relaxation
A good Skin Care Line! Personally I love a good non-toxic line product so my top pick is ARAZA beauty since all the ingredients are paleo friendly, they don't use any artificial fragances, parabens.
My top picks:
Coconut Cream All-In-One: My personal favorite full coverage make up and honestly, not going back! This is the best face make-up ever.
Citrus Illuminating Raw Beauty Oil: This oil has been part of my skin care routine because it really makes my skin feel so refreshed. This one has green tea, orange, sea buckthorn, and jojoba oil.
Coconut Charcoal Sea-Greens Mask Treatment: This is a great part of my wellness routine, to give my skin that extra help to detox for a more radiant and clear complexion.
Foodie Mom Gift Ideas
This one goes for all the foodie moms! I know that someday I will be one of those, so here are some ideas for you to give.
I use mine on repeat!

Goes beyond coffees! You can make teas too!
My mom personally loves these ones, and I do too! They are part of our daily lifestyle. All of them are vegan, organic and high quality.
We even got my grandma hooked because their complete protein has all the essentials for her! MCT, zinc, biotin, vitamin A, protein!
Low calorie, sweet treats!
Because we all love a good snack that doesn't have funky ingredients, these are my selection of healthier version of comfort foods! That I'm sure every mom would appreciate.
Love their cookies and bars, in every flavor!
