After her massage, or instead of, she might like the Therapeutic Foot Pillows. With these, Mom can comfort her tired or pained feet after a long day.
Relieve Mom’s tension with the 3 in 1 Body Wrap. This simple, low tech wrap does the trick with saline filled inserts. She’ll heat the inserts for 4 hours of comfort. Works on any body part.
Sometimes Mom simply needs a minute to relax, or nap, on the couch. The Nap Throw Blanket promises to feel as soft and silky as it looks. Lightweight, too.
Send Mom into Zen territory with the HoMedics Sound SPA Relaxation Sound Machine. 6 sounds: summer night, ocean, rain, thunder, waterfall, rain forest and heartbeat. She can listen during a bath, a nap, meditation, etc. Manual or auto-off timed intervals.
Sometimes soothing music does the trick. Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons more than fits the bill. Mom can listen on the way to work, before the big meeting, right after she puts the demons, errr kids down, or just to clear the swirl in her head. The Boston Symphony Orchestra does the honors.
Flowing water always soothes. Bonus: the Homedics EnviraScape Garden Leaves Relaxation Fountain makes a pretty addition to Mom’s decor. Water cascades down four levels of leaves as special lighting highlights the flow. Tabletop size.

Whether a novice or veteran, Mom might enjoy a new yoga gear.

Mom might prefer this more stylish and compact yoga mat bag. Personalization available.
Tea is good for Mom, as well as relaxing. With the Classic British Flavour Tea Gift Basket. A two cup teapot, complete with clotted cream, tea drip catcher and lots of goodies, like scone mix, shortbread and British chocolate.
