Mother’s Day Gift: Cards

I love getting personalized cards as a gift on Mother’s Day especially when the cards are extra cute. Moms want to know we’re appreciated for all our hard work and nothing makes us feel more celebrated than handwritten notes from our family.

Below are some super cute ones to make every mom feel special.

Mother’s Day Gift to Pamper Mom the Asian Way

I love to be pampered but have a hard time making time to do it.

Most times, as moms, not only do we need to make the appointment, we need to find a babysitter and make sure the sitter has everything they need.

The whole process makes some of us moms not even want to go through it. So gifting her something to help her feel pampered would be extra thoughtful.

Reflexology Massage

I think every mom needs a massage and oftentimes it’s hard to get away to get one done.

Get her a gift card for a proper Chinese acupressure massage. Not one of those wimpy western ones, but the ones that “hurt so good.” You know what I’m talking about hahha.

To find one, just look up reflexology massage on Google maps.

But if she likes a western spa massage, set one up for her. Remember to watch the kids or set up a babysitter for her too so she doesn’t have to do it yourself.

Gua Sha Tool with Red Light

I’ve recently heard about the benefits of red light therapy for skin and we all know how the ancient practice of guasha helps with circulation.

Giving moms something she can pamper herself daily to massage her face and tired muscles after a long day will bless her so so much!

Youth Lab

Chinese Herbs Foot Bath

During my postpartum center stay in Taiwan, every other night they would give me an herbal pack to be used as a foot bath or to bath myself in.

After each foot bath, I would feel so amazingly relaxed and rejuvenated.

You need to soak each packet in boiling hot water for 10 minutes beforehand. At the postpartum center they provided these huge coolers for soaking the herbal packs and for the foot soak.

These packets are full of Chinese herbs to help with circulation, improving qi and bring more heat to the body especially in the winter time.

This would be a great way to pamper mom with Ancient Chinese wisdom. Don’t forget an easy packable foot soak bucket.
