Being a mom is tough work! These exhausted mom gift ideas are perfect to give your bestie or someone who needs a little pick-me-up boost this Christmas! Bonus that all these gifts are under $25!
Are you still looking for gifts for people on your list? Me too! Confession, I have bought one present (mittens for my daughter — shhh don’t tell her!), but that’s it! I really need to get my act together. As I thought about the people on my list, of course, many of them happen to be moms with little kids and I thought about how we all need a little push in the right direction sometimes to take time for ourselves. Why not put together a a few gift ideas for the exhausted mom in your life?
I know plenty of moms that would LOVE these items! You can either give these gifts for her individually or bundle up a few of the items to make a fun gift basket. At the bottom of this post I show you three different ways to bundle some of the gifts to make a gift to encourage her to relax, rejuvenate, or restore.
When I went to my local Cost Plus World Market store in Portland they had a huge selection of seasonal items and relaxation gifts that are perfect for gifts. Here are 10 gifts under $25 that you can grab from your local Cost Plus World Market before Christmas next week.
1. Winter Berry Bath Salts
Encourage mom to sneak away for a little breather with these luxurious bath salts. They are perfect for the winter time and smell heavenly, scented with holly berry!
2. Sugared Berry Candle Collection
This candle collection can be found in your local Cost Plus World Market in the seasonal section and is such a perfect gift to light and help her relax as she soaks in the bath salts. The candle and potpourri can be bought in a set online or separately in the store.
3. Marble Mugs
Sometimes moms need other moms more than they realize. This gorgeous set of marble mugs will encourage your tired mom friend to invite some friends over for a cup of hot tea (or cold since we realize kids are very distracting).
And can I just admit how much I am obsessed with these mugs? Like, seriously OBSESSED!
4. Caramel & Sea Salt Chocolate Bar
She may have to eat it hiding in the bathroom, but what tired momma wouldn’t appreciate some chocolate? This caramel sea salt bar is so yummy!
5. Charcoal Face Mask
How often do moms remember to take off their makeup before collapsing in bed at night? This face mask will purify, cleanse, and detoxify….and help her not feel as guilty for forgetting to take off the makeup for too many nights in a row.
For the days when the kids wake up well before the sun and getting dressed is hard, this robe is super cozy and I’m pretty sure I need to get one for myself. You can find these robes in the Holiday section.
7. Wooden Foot Massager
Have a minute of peace? This foot massager is the perfect gift to give the mom who’s running around on her feet all day long.
After the foot massager, encourage the momma to wiggle her toes in these comfy slippers before she crashes in bed at night. These are found near the robes in the Holiday section of your Cost Plus World Market.
9. Mrs. Always Right Mug
Sometimes we all need this reminder. Mom is right…always! Especially if mom has a threenager and is in a constant battle all day then she might need this mug as a gentle reminder.
P.S. There were A TON of super fun mugs I found and it was really hard to choose my favorite! Hence, the marble mugs and this one. Ha!
10. Chocolate Peppermint Quick Bread
The potlucks and get-togethers sneak up on all of us! Help momma out by giving this box of delicious chocolate peppermint quick bread for her to whip up for a party or just for her family to enjoy. We tried the bread and it’s super tasty!

Now, onto the gift basket ideas! First up, relax.
Me time is pretty much last on every mom’s list, but let’s encourage her with a little relaxation gift basket. These gifts can be mixed around, but this relaxation basket is a great one for the person who needs a subtle nudge to take a moment to herself. Here’s what is included:
Maybe she needs an at-home spa day? Give this rejuvenation gift basket.
- Super Cozy Robe
- Faux Fur Slippers
- Foot Massager
- Charcoal Face Mask
- Winter Berry Bath Salts
- Caramel & Sea Salt Chocolate Bar
Does your exhausted mom need a subtle push to have a little get together and restore some friendships that have been pushed aside while taking care of littles? This gift basket is just the thing she might need!
I also put some hot chocolate mix and marshmallows in a mason jar to finish off this gift basket.
The great thing about Cost Plus World Market is they have literally thought of everything for you! I grabbed that cute little black bucket and it came with a clear gift bag, shredded paper, twine, and gift tag to put it all together. So handy!! If you’re looking for something specific though, there are lots of wrapping options available.
