Best Gifts For Busy Moms

Weighted Blanket

Busy moms needs a lot of rest and weighted blankets are proven to help you sleep better. They give you the feeling of being hugged which helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. They can also help reduce anxiety.


Proceed with caution! If this is for your mom yes a Roomba is a GREAT gift. If this is for your partner, ask first. I asked my husband for a Roomba for Christmas so we could just set it and forget it while we were at work – it was more of a house present. But not every woman is going to appreciate a vacuum for a gift.
