Motherhood makes it all too easy to prioritize others over yourself, and to feel like you could use a little reminder of who you were pre-baby. For mamas living in smaller homes and apartments, it’s even easier to forgo any self-care items in the name of space-saving. Luckily, lots of sanity-restoring, indulgent self-care accessories and services don’t involve cluttering up your real estate, and we’ve done the work on curating some of our favorites below. So add them to your registry, mama, because you deserve a little TLC, too.

Postpartum Recovery Essentials Bundle
With the Postpartum Wash Bottle, Herbal Postpartum Spray, and Hot & Cold Postpartum Therapy Package, this bundle will help you prepare to manage birth-related pain and discomfort. These most-loved items by mamas are great for use on their own—and even more convenient when used in their 3-step recovery process: Cleanse, Soothe, Relieve.
Snacks today for Mama, lifelong health for baby. Nunona’s debut product, Mama Balls, is an industry first. Focused on helping Mom create quality breast milk, our energy balls have nutrients that help support babies brain and body throughout their lifetime. With pre-portioned daily packs, we help take the guesswork out of getting extra energy – when it’s needed most.
Rose Gold Brightening Essence
This brightening essence will give your skin a welcome boost. Made with aloe vera, chamomile, pomegranate juice and more, you can expect a balanced skin tone while irritants are soothed. We also love that this BIPOC-owned company keeps all mamas in mind with their products.
Let’s be honest. If you live with a baby (or multiple children!) in a small space, the best way to practice self-care is to get out of that space and take some time for yourself. Spa Finder gift cards can be used towards a variety of services like massages, facials and more.

The Happiness Project One Sentence Journal
Even though you’d probably like to document every minute of your baby’s early years for posterity, the reality is that mamas are tired and short on time. That’s why this journal is so great—you only need to write one sentence a day. At the end of your five year journey, you’ll have a fascinating snapshot of this time.
Meal Delivery Gift Card
A gift card from a meal delivery service like Hello Fresh is a great way for friends and family to make sure your family is eating well and has tons of options on hand, even when getting to the grocery store just isn’t in the cards.
Meditation App Subscription
Mindfulness and meditation are harder to come by in the throws of parenthood. A subscription to an app like Headspace, which offers everything from sleep tips to managing anxiety, is an excellent way to help you get centered, clear your mind, and be your best self for your baby.
Bath & Shower Gel
If it’s good enough for the Queen (yes, Molton Brown has been a favorite of the royal family for decades), it’s good enough for you, mama. Even if you can’t swing a shower every day (we get it), when you do steal some proper soak time, you’ll feel like a new person thanks to these luxurious products.
