Mother’s Day Must-Haves

Mother’s Day 2021 will be honoring moms how have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Many have taken on additional roles such as teachers, therapists, and nurses, and this is truly a year to let them know how much we appreciate their role in our life. I’m sharing a few unique Mother’s Day must-haves for the woman in your life whose unconditional love lets you be YOU!

Mother's Day Gifts

For the On-the-Go Mom

Honestly, I am often running from appointments to meetings to sporting events. Sitting down to have breakfast or even a snack is a luxury I cannot afford most days. Unfortunately, most snacks/bars are choc-full of carbs, sugar, and fake ingredients which leave me feeling worse after consuming.

Core Keto Bar- Mother's Day Must-have

All the taste, without all the carbs! CORE Keto Bars are crafted with 100% plant-based ingredients and have only 2g of sugar & only 3g of net carbs to keep her full, fueled, and her sweet tooth totally satisfied CORE Keto Bars are certified keto, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. With delicious flavors like Chewy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter and Fudgy Double Chocolate Brownie, these bars taste so good, you won’t believe they are keto! CORE Keto bars are found in the refrigerated section because they have actual REAL ingredients. This is one of my Mother’s Day must-haves because if moms don’t take care of themselves, they can’t take care of anyone else!

For the Multi-Hyphenate Mom

Singer. Dancer. Actress. Businesswoman. JLo is the ultimate multi-hyphenate mom, inspiring women across the globe to live that big life no matter what age. Jennifer Lopez launched a fresh new fragrance called Promise, which embodies that woman who promises to be better every day. The fragrance is…delicious. That is the best way I can describe it! The top notes are a bit citrusy with juicy red berries, then trails off into floral, leading into a woodsy finish. It reminds me a bit of Amor Amor by Cacharel- a fragrance I fell in love with in my late 20s.

JLo Promise Perfume Mother's Day

Ulta is offering a gorgeous gift with any $55 Jennifer Lopez fragrance purchase- a powder pink crossbody bag with a gold chain and fun tassel! If you want to grab mom a travel or to-go version of this fragrance, they have a .3oz. version which is perfect for purses.

For the Mom Who Needs More Time

When my kids were little, I remember how grabbing five uninterrupted minutes to wash my hair seemed like an unattainable luxury. If you can give moms of young children the gift of time, you give them the best gift of all. Unfortunately, most things that captivate kids’ attention are loaded with ads and options to purchase additional services, rendering the experience annoying at the least, dangerous at the most.

Vooks is the world’s first and only streaming platform bringing storybooks to life through animation. With an expansive library of titles, the VOOKS storybook experience adds slight animation, sound, and narration to classic and award-winning books that are loved by parents and educators alike. Each Vook averages seven minutes to read, which gives moms enough time to catch their breath, grab a snack or simply get dressed for the day!


The kid-safe and ad-free streaming library of read-aloud animated storybooks transform the reading experience by bringing words to life in order to spark every child’s imagination. Vooks combines the love, trust, and safety of children’s books with the convenience of online streaming, for a whole new way to experience stories. They offer a free trial, $4.99 monthly subscription, or $49.99 for a year. This is one of my Mother’s Day must-haves because, let’s be honest, every mom could use more minutes in her day.

For the Active Mom

I have about 30 creams, lotions and potions that I NEVER use. Not because I don’t enjoy taking the time to apply them, but because I often don’t have the 5 minutes to spare to let them soak in before I get dressed. What if there was a product that combined clothing with skincare?

Skincare and Shapewear for mom

Skineez offers slimming capri leggings that are infused with skin-healthy cosmetic nutrients. They are a perfect comfort item for walking, hiking, yoga, travel. You can firm and hydrate your legs while wearing comfortable mild compression infused with moisturizing shea butter and botanicals plus the power of Retinol. In fact, they are clinically proven to firm, revitalize and hydrate your skin in less than one hour. After 10 washes, just reinfuse the garments with their Replenishing Spray for continued softness. They are offering a bundle of capris and their spray for $29.99, a $49.99 value.

Cheers to celebrating the mom who does it all, even when all she wants to do is cuddle up on the couch and binge Netflix while eating takeout (or maybe that’s just me…)!
