#1- Bellicon rebounder trampoline!

beleton rebounder favorite things for wives and moms

I don’t know about you but I don’t have time to put in hour long workouts each day. That would be nice but it’s just not realistic at all. What if you could do a workout in 20-30 minutes that would be the equivalent of an HOUR’S worth of cardio?!!!  I’m in! A rebounder is such a rockstar. Yes to workouts that get alot done in a short period of time. Isn’t that the greatest? This Bellicon classic is the BEST of the BEST.  Icing on the cake is that the legs fold for easy storage! Busy wives and moms that want to be in shape simply need this gift!

#2- Patagonia Dreamy Sweater!

favorite gifts for wives and moms

This is the softest and most comfortable sweater! I love the “oyster white” color and the cut of this sweater is super flattering. This is a great gift for young wives and moms to keep them cozy and warm while looking very put together! If you give yourself this or someone you love, you’ll find they wear it all the time! Ofcourse a gift card to REI.com works too!

#3- Chic Travel Toiletry Bag!

toiletry bag favorite things for wives and moms

This toiletry bag is simply perfect for the wife or mom! I don’t use it for travel only. What I do is store my makeup in it. I used to have one drawer or bag with all of my makeup thrown in it. This bag is better because of the 4 compartments! I have eye makeup in one, lip glosses in another, foundation and powder in another, and brushes in the 4th compartment. Plus, it’s super easy to take in the car where I often apply makeup! This bag keeps my makeup lovely and organized at all times!



#4- The Duties of Parents!

duties of parents favorite things for wives and moms

This truly incredible book outlines 17 profound responsibilities of Christian parents. It was written in the 19th century and you will definitely agree that it is just as relevant today as it was then. Last year, this year, and in the years to come, this one is a timeless treasure.

When you read it, you will understand why it is still very much in print! This may be the BEST PARENTING BOOK EVER. It is more of a booklet and can and should be read repeatedly. Read it and expect to be challenged deeply and encouraged greatly! I can’t think of a more special gift for not only young moms but new parents and old alike!


#5- AgeWell Skincare!

arbonne agewell favorite things for wives and moms

Talk about favorite things for wives and moms!!!! Amazing skincare may be on every woman’s wish list! Skincare is such a great self care gift.

Once I learned that what you put on your skin gets into your bloodstream in a matter of seconds, I started reading labels on my skincare! Eeeek. I was so glad to have found Arbonne as they are pure, safe, clean products that actually WORK. (If you use just coconut oil on your face, for instance, you are avoiding harmful chemicals yes, but as far as helping to reduce lines and wrinkles- not so much.)

Arbonne’s anti aging line is the walking dog of effectiveness! The best blend of science and nature. This is like giving her a spa day every day!

What makes this so affordable is that they last SO LONG! A super small amount goes a long way, so you don’t need to get more very often. I feel so good knowing I’m taking great care of my skin using these products! I look forward to my daily routine where I go through these steps super fast: cleanser, toner, serum (oh my-it’s just the BEST), eye cream (say no to crow’s feet and dark circles), day or night cream!

(Note: On the checkout page for the Age Well anti aging line, check out how to get 40% off your order of the set or 20% off individual products!)


Speaking of all these favorite things, this FREE 3 day mini course is definitely a favorite of mine! Who doesn’t love dropping some weight if needed? The3 Day Healthy Weight Loss Reset is a super effective 3 day plan to get you losing 3-5lbs in just 3 days without having to think about what to eat!  This is great to do before an upcoming event or as a jumpstart to the THRIVING thru NUTRITION 30 day plan!


#6- Darn Tough Hiking socks for her!

favorite gifts for wives and moms

These shrink treated merino wool socks are so comfortable for the wife or mom who likes to hike or heck, who just wears socks on any given day! Super cute colors and it’s hard to believe a sock can feel this great all day long! These socks make great stocking stuffers too!


#7- The Best Ever Shampoo and  Conditioner!

best mother's day gifts

No I am not exaggerating here! Olaplex shampoo and conditioner couldn’t be better! This shampoo and conditioner are more expensive than the cheap toiletries, yes. But I mention them here because they are worth it if the mom you want to gift cares about her hair!

This Olaplex shampoo/conditioner leaves hair hydrated, radiant, and healthy! My hair will tend drier and I love how the conditioner doesn’t feel super silky when I rinse it out of my hair, but when I dry my hair, it is perfectly silky without being heavy or greasy looking!

What makes these affordable is that they last a really long time! I have pretty long hair and I only use nickel size amount each time. So these 8oz bottles last a really long time! A great option gift idea for mother’s is beautiful hair!

#8- Thriving Thru Nutriton Ebook Plan!

favorite things for wives and moms

If you or the wife or mom in your life wants to eat healthy and do an easy reset that makes you feel amazing while dropping weight (if needed), this ebook plan is a favorite gift for sure! Not only is it all she needs for 30 days of recipes and snacks, but it also comes with every other day emails for the 30 days that are there to encourage and bless young mothers and wives along the way!

#9-Trader Joe’s Taco Seasoning!

trader joes taco seasoning favorite things for wives and moms

Hey- don’t laugh- this is an absolute FAVORITE of anyone who loves cooking mexican food! I started making my own taco seasoning when I read the ingredients on the back of well-known taco seasoning packets! Ugh!!! No thank you chemicals in my taco seasoning! Homemade taco seasoning is delish for sure, but when I found this at Trader Joe’s, I liked it BETTER!

Plus, I enjoy NOT having to take the time to measure out and make my own! I never like to be without this. PRO TIP– Only use 1/4 to 1/2 a package at a time!!! A little goes a deliciously LONG way!!

#10- Best Pillow Ever!

pregnancy pillow favorite things for wives and moms

Isn’t this pillow the dreamiest? Don’t be thrown off by the pregnant girl in the pic! Yes pregnant women shouldn’t have to live without this, but you don’t have to be pregnant to NEED this thing.

I did buy it when I was pregnant and yes it is SO HELPFUL for support and comfort during pregnancy! But I couldn’t part with it once baby was born-ha! All night sound sleep? No problem! A place to melt into at the end of a long day? Oh yes. Here is more about the power naps possible with this too!




#11- Lodge cast iron skillets!

favorite things for wives and moms

There is a reason most chefs choose to cook in cast iron cookware! Cast iron conducts heat perfectly and browns beautifully. Cast iron simply excels on the stovetop AND in the oven. That kind of versatility is just necessary for a busy wife and mom! I think name brand matters with these in a big way. I choose to use LODGE brand cast iron because it is made in the United States and is far superior to the brands made overseas. I have the skillets and dutch oven and couldn’t love them more!

#12- Arbonne’s awesome Self Tanner!

favorite self tanner gift for moms


Most young wives and moms don’t have time to lay out in the sun to perfect a tan! And if this is around Christmas time, the colder weather can bring on pale skin. It completely changes the look and feel of your face to have some color! This is a favorite gift for wives and moms because it is great for BOTH face and body and can take away the winter pale look!!

Arbonne’s self-tanning lotion is the best self tanner out there. It achieves golden, sun-kissed skin without the UV damage. The lightweight, vegan formula dries quickly and develops into a streak-free, natural-looking tan within two hours, and you control the color based on how many layers you apply.

It’s infused with Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Green Tea Extracts and a fresh scent!

(Note: On the checkout page for the self-tanning lotion , check out how to get 20% off your order!)


#13- duluth trading clothing and bags!

favorite things for wives and moms

Duluth Trading is one of my favorite companies! Each clothing item is so well made, well thought out (really fun details) and stylishly comfortable. I think the active clothing is superior to others while the regular clothing is outdoorsy, pretty, and functional. Their line of luggage and bags is fabulous too! Suffice it say, there is nothing I haven’t absolutely loved from Duluth Trading. Therefore, I just picked the whole store!

#14- Give the gift of quick, healthy meals: Arbonne Protein Shakes!

arbonne protein shakes favorite things for wives and moms

A life without these protein shakes- wives and moms shouldn’t have to live! Seriously.

They are clean, healthy, vegan protein combining rice, pea, and cranberry protein for easily digestible deliciousness! They have no artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors and 20 vitamins and minerals as well.

Giving protein powder as a gift to a young wife or mom is actually giving her the gift of easy healthy meals on a busy day PLUS the gift of helping her feel great!

If you have tried many protein powders, then you know the yuck, vitamin taste in general is the norm! Arbonne’s shakes taste amazing! It’s hard to find a protein powder that has all ingredients you can pronounce and recognize as well. Most women would love this as a favorite gift!


(Note: On the checkout page for arbonne’s protein powder, check out how to get 20% off your order!)




#15- delightful convenience: An awesome blender!

mother's day gift ideas

This Ninja Pro Blender is simply awesome. There are so many things a mother needs a blender for! For one, she can make herself countless healthy smoothies like we just talked about on the previous gift idea!

There are the cheap blenders that putt-putt along and barely do what you need and then there are quality blenders like the Ninja Pro that dazzle! This Mother’s day gift is one that will keep on giving!




#16- Best Ever Hand-held Vacuum!

favorite gifts for wives and moms

Don’t even consider that a vacuum doesn’t make a great gift idea for a wife or mom! Oh my! This is an absolute FAVORITE item for anyone! This little vacuum is small and super powerful! A quick clean up in the car or kitchen or wherever. It will make a woman’s life easier and she will have FUN using it! Test me on it! Again, best mom gift!


#17- Bluecorn Beeswax Pillar Candle!

If you aren’t familiar with beeswax candles, you are missing out! These candles are clean burning and non-toxic. In fact, they actually absorb bad odors! Pretty amazing. Bluecorn Beeswax candles are the best of the best. They burn a rediculously long time and are made of 100% pure beeswax.

Special occasion or ordinary day- candles make it seem brighter! This comes in a pretty box tied with ribbon ready to gift the young mom or wife in your life!

#18- Okeefe’s working hands!

okeefe's working hands favorite things for wives and moms

This hand cream is just the best. Women’s hands tend to get super dry. My hands can get painfully so, and this unassuming-not-trying-to-be-fancy hand cream does the trick. It’s a miracle working type cream:-) If I just apply this daily, my hands THRIVE! I don’t let myself run out of this especially in the colder months!

#19- Root Pump Volumizing Spray Mousse!

root pump spray favorite things for wives and moms

This product is so great for just what it says- VOLUME! When my hair is wet, I just lift my hair in different places and apply this at the root. Then I blow dry while lifting my hair away from my scalp in those areas. It definitely LIFTS and VOLUMIZES all day! A fabulous hair product and sure to be a favorite gift for a wife or mom!

#20- The Vacuum to end all vacuums- Dyson Cord-less Stick Vacuum!

This is truly a favorite house hold item of anyone that owns one! You can just vacuum all over without worrying about cords or dragging a heavy vacuum all over! It’s super powerful and stores on its charger so it’s always ready to go. Perfect gift idea for a wife or mom!

#21- White soup crocks with handles!

soup crocks favorite things for wives and moms

This set of 4 soup crocks is so great to have on hand. They are ideal for soups, cereals, and even salads! These bowls are the perfect size! Not too big but also not squatty or small! It is hard to find dishes that are very well made and durable. One of my boys has dropped one on our hard wood floor when unloading the dishwasher, and it didn’t chip or break. That’s a great bowl! Sure to be a favorite gift for wives and moms!


#22- Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater Rain Boots!

These are the kind of shoes that feel super comfortable the first time you put them on. No need to break them in (I’ve never understood that concept in the first place! Shoes should feel great the first time you try them on right?!) It doesn’t need to be raining to make me want to wear these.

I love that they are dainty and not big and clunky like rain boots in other brands. They come in different styles, too! My favorites right here! A truly perfect gift for wives and moms!

Dry lips get a big thumbs DOWN! And you know what? It is not a good look for us as women to have dry lips. This shea butter lip balm is simply luxurious.

Each lip balm lasts for months which is just another plus!

#24- Arbonne Fizz Sticks!

These energy fizz sticks are my FAVE drink ever! I don’t think a day EVER goes by without my drinking and enjoying one! My favorite thing to do is make a fizz in a big Yeti cup and drink it over a few hours! The energy fizz drink contains antioxidants and a botanical blend of green tea, guarana and ginseng, combined with B vitamins and chromium, to help boost energy. No artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners- see why I love?

Any wife or mom who wants more energy would love these as a gift! They are bound to be one of her favorite drinks ever!
