The act of
self-care varies from person to person. Whichever way you choose to practice this lifestyle concept, taking the time to stop and show yourself some love is a necessary to-do — whether that’s through mental-health mindfulness, journaling, body care buys, beauty treatments, or even edible treats. Since Mother’s Day is on the horizon we’re shifting our self-care attentions away from ourselves and towards the #1 caregivers in our lives with a self(less)-care gift guide.
With moms on our minds, we pulled together this specially-curated collection of products that cover our favorite self-care essentials for gifting away. The unique lineup includes everything from succulent-shaped essential oil diffusers to healing honey masks, portable air purifiers, silk-pillow and eye-mask sets, massage mats, happy bath wash, and much more. Shop on to get in the true selfless spirit by giving some care — in the form of a memory foam pillow or a super soft sweater — back to the woman who deserves it most on May 12.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
