Chances are (and by chances we mean 100% for sure) that the mom you’re shopping for is tired and something aches on her body. Gift her drop, a soft-touch silicone massager that fits perfectly in the palm of her hand so she can soothe sore breasts, a backache, or anywhere else on her body. Drop comes in gray or green, is USB-chargeable, and has a travel pouch so she can take it with her wherever she goes.

Moms love their diaper bags—that’s no secret. Mostly because we cart around 9 billion things but want a cute and practical bag while we’re doing it. That’s why we know the mom in your life would love an Ayla Diaper Bag that she can wear as a backpack, shoulder bag or hand bag due to its adjustable straps! You can move seamlessly between styles without having to remove and store the straps.. (because psst…moms like versatility, and our hands are full enough!)
Add in the removable, washable inner liner, insulated bottle clutch that’s perfect for milk, formula or snacks, a reusable wet bag for soiled or dirty diapers, and the fact that it comes in seven gorgeous colors… and, well, we’re pretty sure this one’s a winner.
Don’t skip out on Ayla & Co’s mini-bags or fanny packs either—they’ve got a bag for every stage of parenthood. And, if you really want to score points, add the Ayla Vac to your cart too and tuck this small portable handheld vacuum inside the bag before you say “Happy Mother’s Day.”

Moms of all ages need sleep (as a mom of teens, I can attest to that!) And when they can get sleep, they need it to be good sleep.
Enter Somavedic—an innovative consumer tech brand rooted in science that combines modern day technology with ancient healing wisdom. Somavedic’s rest and recovery frequency therapy device is the gift every mom needs, as it uses the natural power of precious minerals and metals to create a life-supporting field to improve sleep & energy and help better manage stress. (More sleep and energy and less stress? Yes please.)
Somavedic also lowers the effect of the EMFs—electromagnetic fields emitted by many modern technologies like WiFi, 5G, Bluetooth devices, and various appliances. And the Gold, Vedic, and Amber models help restructure water—specifically if placed near your drinking water sources—improving hydration and leading to many health improvements.
