Image compiled by Chaunie Brusie

Mother's Day is just around the corner and if you're anything like me, you're probably not even going to ask for anything, right?

In fact, my daughter told me this morning that she knew I didn't want anything for Mother's Day (which actually coincidentally happens to be my birthday too this year!), because “We are the only gifts you need, right Mom?”

Um, well yes, I guess technically that's true. But I still may or may not appreciate some of these gifts I may or may not have the courage to actually ask for …

Turn your shower into an aromatherapy spa

Essential oils are everywhere these days and I thought this clever little device is actually quite genius to put those oils to good use for us mothers. You just hook it on your shower head and voila–it turns your shower into a relaxing aromatherapy spa. I'm always longing for a little peace and quiet in my shower, so this sounds absolutely perfect.

Snacking encouraged

So, does anyone else tend to snack all day, every day? When you're a stay-at-home or work-at-home mom, it's hard to fit in meals or resist the urge to snack all day long. And actually, I kind of like grazing all day long. Which is where a company that is literally called “Graze” comes in–they encourage our snacking habit with personalized, healthy snack boxes. No grubby kid hands allowed.

Cart your wine anywhere

Moms are notorious for loving our wine, right? This is a handy little wine carrier that can cart our beloved bottle of wine or conveniently roll down to fit the size of a water bottle when we're making a bit of a healthier choice. Wink, wink.

Baby carrier on your hip

I don't even know what to say about this, except it's about darn time. This is a diaper bag and a carrier all in one that you don't have to mess around with, wrap around, or struggle with. I can't tell you how many times I've had a bigger kid that won't stay in a carrier but still needs to be carried and this product would be perfect to just help me haul said difficult child to the store or post office or just down the sidewalk without it being too much of a hassle to put them down when we get there. Pure genius, people.

The ultimate family organizer

Am I the only weirdo who thinks this would be the greatest present of all time? Well then, so be it, because I stand by my claim that this would make any mother's life infinitely greater. There's just something about seeing your family events front and center in the kitchen that makes life run just that much more smoothly.
