With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s back to the drawing board for gifts to show your mom (and mother figures in your life) how much you appreciate their constant wisdom, superhuman patience, and general best-role-model-ever status.

This year, skip the houseplants (which just add watering to her to-do list) and encourage me-time instead. The best shortcut for that? Seriously luxe bath and body products.

Rituals—the mindful beauty brand inspired by ancient healing traditions—is your (insanely soothing) go-to. With curated collections filled with natural essentials (free of parabens, phthalates, and microplastics), it’s all about embracing *daily* self care.

It’s all about embracing *daily* self care.

Case in point, the Ritual of Sakura line, inspired by the Japanese celebration of cherry blossoms, helps reset both mind and body. The Ritual of Sakura Relaxing Collection (filled with cherry-blossom-scented bath must-haves with moisturizing rice milk) will encourage your mom to sneak away for a soak with a good book. Out of the tub, she can use the Ritual of Sakura Bed & Body Mist to refresh a space and promote inner calm anywhere she chills out.

And you can gift her everything she needs to create her own ritual in one conveniently chic box—like the Ritual of Ayurveda Balancing Ritual (shower oils, scrubs, and more with hydrating sweet almond oil). The skin-saving gems harness mood-boosting Indian rose and skin-soothing Himalayan honey for a total relaxation package. So good, you’ll want to snag them yourself—but not before you pay it forward.

Scroll down for 12 self-care essentials to gift this Mother’s Day.
