Treat Yourself – 4 Gifts You Didn’t Know You Wanted

mom gifts, shopping list, what a woman wants. mommy monday, mother's day
I received access to these products and services for review purposes. As always, all opinions are honest and my own.

Mother’s Day might have passed but let’s be real, you still deserve to be acknowledged, appreciated and lavished with gifts. And if you’re a single mom like me, you probably are the only one doing the lavishing. I’m betting most of us didn’t even know how to respond to the what you want for Mother’s Day question. I know that I never know what to say when asked what I want, be it mom day, my birthday, Christmas or any other time. I’ve never known how to respond. I mean, come on, that type of open-ended question is dangerous. What’s the budget we’re talking? How realistic of a response does the person require?

Next time you get asked what you really want, I got you covered. And if nobody asks, these are things you can get for yourself! I have had the chance to try these out and I think you would adore:

TheRoama – I was really excited when this came across my desk. It is a gift for everyone in the home but it is something I count as a win for me so I thought you might be interested in learning about it. Aromatherapy isn’t new. Having diffusers at home isn’t new. Yet, somehow, Roama feels new. It is portable. It is wireless. It is, wait for it…WATERLESS!!! That means that you can take it everywhere. Oh, and it isn’t only a diffuser. It also functions as an air purifier and ionizer. I love that you don’t have to find special bottles either as it takes a standard 10ml essential oil glass bottle (and comes with 2 – Peppermint and Eucalyptus). I’ve been using it to play around with scents a bit but peppermint is still the winner with my family. Amazon currently has a $20 coupon on this!!!

Salthaus – I’m sure that you saw my visit to Salthaus on Instagram. It was such an amazing experience that Karina and I decided that at least one of our JustAPlayDate planning meetings a month should be there. We left feeling invigorated and refreshed. Have you tried halotherapy before? It has so much value including reducing stress and strengthening immunity. Best part is that it is good for children too and if you book a session for your child, you get to attend with the child for free!!! Who doesn’t want to sit in a modern salt cave for 45 minutes to unplug and recharge?

Paladone Harry Potter ICON Lamp -We love all things Harry Potter in this house. In fact, as I type this I am wearing a Hogwarts t-shirt. That means that I am always looking for fun HP trinkets. I think this lamp is adorable and the perfect gift for all Harry Potter lovers, not just moms, but if I didn’t have one already then it would make my list. Currently, it spends more time with JustAFish than me but it is still a fun addition to our home.


Pretty Woman The Musical – Did you know that I used to know Pretty Woman the movie by heart? I could literally say the lines alongside the actors. That is how many times I have seen it. Suffice to say that when I found out they were making a musical of Pretty Woman it topped my must-see list.  I love musicals and am really excited that I will be seeing the show later this week as part of my #FairyTale40th celebration. It is the perfect girl’s night out and I’m planning to enjoy a well-deserved mom’s night out. And I won’t have any mom guilt because JustaBXgirl will be able to have her own night out to see the new Aladdin movie. Back to me, I mean you! Because I adore you and I want you to get yourself the gift that Mother’s Day forgot, my friends over at Pretty Woman The Musical have set up a Ticketmaster discount code – MOM1 and it’s in effect until 9/1! Yup, because we don’t like paying full price for things!!!
