1. mbg's sleep support+ subscription
Moms may have the superhuman ability to thrive on less than eight hours of sleep, but it doesn't mean they should. Help promote deep and restorative sleep with a subscription to mindbodygreen's sleep support+, a melatonin-free supplement with a science-backed formula that helps you fall asleep and stay there.* Bonus: Opting for a monthly subscription saves $10 on every bottle.

Give Mom's space an upgrade with a bit of greenery. We vote for a low-maintenance option, like Bloomscape's Tough Stuff Collection. It pairs three easygoing plant varieties that thrive in any lighting situation and require minimal watering. You'll also have the choice of three pot colors: white, terracotta, and brown.

3. Cariuma Sneakers
Never underestimate the value of a practical gift like comfy footwear. Launched earlier this year, the Cariuma Salvas are comfortable enough to wear right out of the box. While you'll need to opt for a gift card or accept a late arrival of these sustainable sneakers, they're definitely a gift Mom won't mind receiving this year. Plus, every pair purchased equals two trees planted, so Mother Earth benefits, too.
