It has been an impossibly difficult year for you both, but you have turned to each other to get your family through. Your wife, through constant creativity, unimaginable sacrifice, and, at times, pure exhaustion, has helped keep your unit afloat This Mother's Day, honor the heart and soul of your family with a gift that's as special as she is.

Though most moms would agree that what they'd like best is a little peace and quiet after the full-house tumult of the past 12 months—complete with home-schooling lessons and months-on-end quarantines—it's a very good idea to give her something to unwrap, too. That's why we went ahead and rounded up several of the best Mother's Day gifts for your wife, many of which do revolve around rest, relaxation, and self-care. From CBD-infused gummies (from Martha's Shop Canopy collection!) and floral bath salts (perfect for a long, hot soak) to a breezy silk loungewear set and comfortable cotton robe, there are several presents here that hit that much-needed R&R note.

We were also sure to include gifts that speak to her favorite hobbies, too. Whether she's a budding gardener or florist, an expert knitter, the best bread baker on the block, or a combination of all three, there's something for her on this comprehensive list full of gifts that will show her how much the mother of your children truly means to you.
