With a difficult year of social distancing, more time spent indoors and missing friends and family, moms everywhere are craving simplicity and comfort. To get through the day, to de-stress, and just to survive a difficult year of isolation and little support.
So if you’re looking for the best mom gifts in 2020, below are the top picks to help bring a little more simple joy into her year!
All-Natural Hand Soap
To kick-off our 2020 gift ideas for moms, we’ll start with the obvious: hand soap!
Washing hands before meals, after grocery-shopping or bathroom usage, is a MUST every day, but now so more than ever during COVID-19.
And even though anti-bacterial soap is ideal and harder to find these days, experts have said any type of soap and water wash works for removing germs from our hands, as long as you’re washing thoroughly for about 20-30 seconds.
Try a hand wash like the everyone line — an affordable 3-pack wash with lavender and coconut essential oils.
It’s a favorite, all-natural handwash to keep mom’s hands clean and lightly scented throughout the day — making it a top pick to include in your gift basket of mom goodies!
When the inevitable shortage of paper towels hits, make sure you are prepared to dry those freshly cleaned hands with hand towels!
This year, it’s been quite the challenge to find a number of products in stock — one of the most notable, paper products like paper towels!
But no need to fret!
Stock up in advance on these household basics to avoid the stress and frustration when you can’t find paper towels anywhere in town (or online!).
NOTE: If you need paper products for cleaning around the house, these micro-fiber cloths that come in a multi-pack are a great alternative!
Mom-Approved Face Masks
If your previously purchased (or home-made face masks — yes, even I tried this during the shortage earlier this year!) is in need of an upgrade, make sure you stock up on new masks now!
Because as much as I’d love to think this pandemic is almost over, the reality is things are not looking so good right now…and it may take a bit longer until we truly round a corner.
Old Navy has some really nice face mask designs on SALE!
But you can also find custom ideas on Etsy like any these.
What better way to cozy up indoors this season (and year of quarantine) than with a warm cuddly blanket, like a Puffy Blanket?
Puffy Blanket is a premium quality faux fur blanket from the Puffy Mattress brand. Made from 100% hypoallergenic polyester, the blanket is resistant to common allergens such as dust mites and ideal for sensitive sleepers.
Moms will appreciate Puffy Blanket’s dual-feel design, with one side being faux-fur and the other a plush micro-mink for velvety softness. From modern gray to ivory color, the versatility makes it easy to change up and spread whatever your preference.
As a mom to three children, going from remote learning and working at home to just trying to keep it all together, the soft-luxurious and calming feel of the blanket is exactly what we all need to relax at the end of the day.
But the Puffy Blanket isn’t just for night-time sleeping. It’s generous size and lightweight coziness works to wear or throw around the house as you move from room to room.
This year, I will be gifting a Puffy Blanket to my own mother who struggles with being cold due to circulation issues. Just the comfort and coziness she needs whether sleeping or relaxing to her favorite tv show on the couch!
At-Home Mani/Pedi Kit
No one’s making it to the salon these days…at least not at the normal rate.
And for those that need a little pampering or self-care right now, it makes things a little harder, contributing to feelings of frumpiness or just not feeling put together.
An at-home spa kit for manicures and pedicures makes such a nice gift idea for the mom in need of a little make-over.
A bubbling warm pedi spa like this one helps mom relax and pamper herself while multitasking.
Sleep Eye Mask
With so much mental load keeping her up at night, it’s tough to get a good night’s sleep. Help mom unwind and relax a little easier at night with this comfy sleep eye mask!
The mask is constructed from memory foam for a soothing way to block out light for a more restful night.
And unlike typical masks, it is contoured for the ideal comfortable fit to effectively block out light.
Cozy Earth Lounge Wear
These days with so many of us are working from home or just supporting kids remote learning, we need comfortable clothes that also looks presentable.
And as a mom to little ones, I must admit the casual outfits and leggings are my favorites. But they can also get quite worn out and make me question my wardrobe choices.
Cozy Earth, a line of organic clothing offers a luxurious feel with some of the softest material out there.
I recently had the chance to check out their pull-over crew and jogger pants from their loungewear collection and was instantly sold.
The bamboo material is seriously some of the softest fabric available and does not pill after washing like many of the casual clothing I’ve owned over the years!
The simplicity, yet superior quality makes it a top pick for mom gifts of 2020!
Go here and use code BUNDLE50 to save 50% off the loungewear through the holiday season.
Food Delivery Service
In a year where online shopping is families shop safely, membership to a food or essentials delivery is a must! A 2020 gift guide for moms wouldn’t be complete without one.
So whether you opt for a local food service or Instacart, don’t overlook this one.
When the pandemic began earlier this year, enrollment was limited or just very difficult to find for those who didn’t already have a membership. So as an uptick of cases and more need to shopping online, nows the time to join.
If no longer delivery options are available, make sure you have an Amazon Prime account. This will help expedite deliveries when you just can’t make it to the store in-person.
