Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! And being a mom myself now for the past 5 years, appreciate my own mom more than ever! Moms are seriously SHEroes! They literally put their kids’ needs and happiness far before theirs, and that is something to really celebrate! To thank your mom for all of her heroic efforts, give her something really special this year! I’m going to give you 3 Mother’s Day gift ideas that are fit for every kind of SHEro!

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Mountain Escape at Woodloch Pines Resort

I know I would LOVE to escape to the beautiful mountainside for a retreat, and I cannot wait to visit Woodloch Pines Resort in the Poconos! Not only is the scenery gorgeous, but the resort offers countless activities for both adults and kids! (My neighbor just took her family there, and they had a blast!)

There is something for everyone at this resort! Their mission is to provide an atmosphere that fosters togetherness and some serious memory-making. It really seems like the best resort for a family vacation. Here are a few of the super-appealing amenities this Poconos resort has to offer:

  • six-sided rock climbing wall
  • indoor and outdoor pools
  • bumper cars
  • go-carts
  • bumper boats
  • kayaking
  • snow tubing
  • ice skating
  • family-friendly nightly entertainments
  • abundant family-style meals
  • immaculate and spacious accommodations

The Woodloch family of properties is also home to Woodloch Springs, an 18- hole championship golf course community, plus a sister resort, The Lodge at Woodloch, an award-winning, luxury destination spa. The trio spans 1,200 acres and can accommodate over 1,000 guests. (Bonus: Woodloch Pines Resort was voted in the top 1% of properties worldwide on TripAdvisor!)

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Thank You Mom Candle from Homesick Candles

Candles are always a good idea, but this one is extraordinary. This candle smelled SOOOO good before I even burned it! I placed it on my nightstand the day I got it, and I awoke the next day to a faint, fresh, floral scent.

You know why I like it so much? It reminds me of home. No, not the home I live in now as an adult, but of the home I grew up in. This scented candle encompasses everything my mom did to make our house homey:

Freshly-trimmed flowers on the kitchen table, breakfast cooking on Easter morning, and the lingering scent of her perfume all come to mind.

Here is the lovely mixture of scents in the Homesick Thank You, Mom candle:

  • Top notes: bergamot, lavender, sage
  • Mid notes: jasmine, ylang-ylang, white lily, clove
  • Bottom notes: sandalwood, musk

And you know what else is amazing?

  • Hand-poured in the USofA
  • Made with an all-natural soy wax blend
  • Burns for 60-80 hours

I am obsessed with this candle, and your mom will be, too. It smells good when it’s burning and when it’s not, and it encompasses so many reasons you have ever felt homesick! Sigh… Thanks, mom! I know you’ll enjoy this Mother’s Day gift! And guess what! Get 15% off your own candle with code babble (Valid between 4/1/19-5/31/19)!!

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: DEEBOT 711 from ECOVACS- A Robotic Vacuum

I have my DEEBOT 711 running around my floors, sucking up crumbs from my kids and fur from my particularly fluffy cat as I type this. It’s literally the best robot vacuum! I tried a different brand of robot vacuum about 7-8 years ago, and it didn’t do nearly as good a job as this DEEBOT does.

Watch out, Milton!

The DEEBOT 711 is safe on my hardwood floors and transitions perfectly from hardwood floor to carpet. It seems to pick up super fine dirt, dust, glitter… My home feels really clean! And the DEEBOT never gets stuck in my many corners, making it an extremely reliable cleaning source.

The best part about this robot vacuum is that all I have to do is press a single button, either on the vacuum itself or on its remote control, and off she goes. And if you have Google Home or Amazon home smart systems, you can sync up the DEEBOT 711! Then, you don’t even have to stop what you’re doing to press a button. You simply have to say, “DEEBOT, start cleaning.”

    I’ve never used a robot vacuum before but I think now that I have a super messy toddler it is time to take the plunge! I will definitely check out the Deebot 711. Maybe I can convince my husband it would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Thanks for the recommendation!

      Honestly, I had a different brand before and it was so noisy and I’m convinced it scratched my floors. This one does none of that. Used it today and am obsessed. Happy Mother’s Day!!

    I never worry much about gifts, as in the physical. I love the experiences more for the mothers in my life than anything!
