Jewelry is a classic gift for Mother’s Day. Usually you will see a lot of hearts, stylized pregnant bellies, and birthstones on Mother’s Day jewelry. These images are a little too obvious for a modern mother, and they are not versatile enough to wear all year long. This tree of life pendant from Alex Woo is different. It is gorgeous enough to wear any time of year, but still has a symbolic meaning that shows that you put a lot of thought into the gift. The tree of life symbolizes family and the important role that mothers play in everyone’s life. It comes in either sterling silver or yellow gold to match your mom’s style.

7. Raindrop Nebulizing Essential Oil Diffuser By Organic Aromas

Raindrop, Nebulizing Essential Oil Diffuser, mothers day gift 2016, mom best present

As a new mom, I love essential oils. I used them for aromatherapy while I was pregnant to stay relaxed and calm down morning sickness, as well as for making my own household cleaners and personal care products so that I don’t have to expose myself or my baby to commercial products full of chemicals and artificial perfumes. Since my baby was born I have continued using them around the house for aromatherapy, and there is nothing better than a heat-free diffuser for the job! Diffusers that use candles destroy a lot of the healing properties of essential oils with their high heat, and most commercially available electric diffusers use plastic reservoirs that could affect the quality of the oils you breathe in. This diffuser from Organic Aromas is made entirely out of glass and wood, so you don’t have to worry about the purity of the oils you diffuse. It comes in two colors – light wood or black wood. Any mom who loves essential oils will really appreciate this gift!

If your mom is new to essential oils, you can get her a beginner’s starter kit here.
