Here are some of our favorite things — great ideas for Mother’s Day gifts!
The Perfect Purse
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, look no further. Every mom knows the struggle of finding the perfect purse; it must be cute while also utilitarian, and anjie & ash deliver with their crossbody parent bag. The crossbody feature allows parents to have both hands free, and thoughtful features like exterior beverage cup holders and multiple interior pockets make this the ideal gift for any mama out there.

Massage & Fascia Release Tools
Whether you’re missing your regular massages or your body is tight with stress, you need some of these RAD Roller Fascia Release tools. A fan favorite, the Helix’s ergonomic design with ridged, indented shape helps protect your spine while working out back muscles (and can also be used on other parts of the body). If your hips need some TLC, try the RAD Recovery Rounds. Roll slowly and steadily or pin and hold to help alleviate tension and promote the loosening of tight fascia. Another great idea for Mother’s Day, these massage tools are sold locally (pickup and delivery available) at The Yogaja Shop.
Tea Gift Box
Is the mother in your life a tea lover? We have the perfect gift box: an assortment of Jaf Tea. Jaf teas are known for their exceptional flavors, freshness and quality and are sourced and packed in Ceylon. While not local, these teas are ethically produced to support local communities. Available on Amazon. Jaftea.com
For the Chef in the Fam
Maybe you love cooking or maybe you’re forced to slave away in the kitchen more than usual thanks to COVID-19. Either way, the Fab Slab is a must-have for the chef in the family. These “naturally and permanently antibacterial” cutting boards and grazing platters are made in Australia from one single slab of wood. They look and smell wonderful and are less porous than their plastic counterparts (and better for the environment!). Sold at Lowe’s, Macy’s and Amazon. fabslabsusa.com
A Yoga Membership
Moms need some “me” time, and now that parents have taken on the role of educator due to school closings, moms need relaxation time more than ever. Local yoga studios like Open Arms Wellness Center (Oregon), Toledo Yoga (Ottawa Hills), and Yogaja Yoga (West Toledo) are providing virtual classes, both live and prerecorded, until it is safe to return to the studio. Additionally, Open Arms is offering curbside pickup for Mother’s Day gift cards, and Yogaja Shop has yoga accessories and clothes available for delivery.
