One of modern time’s greatest philosophers once said: “The most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself.”
And since Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating relationships, consider this permission to gift bae — that would be you, mama — a special little something (or multiple somethings) that’ll serve as a reminder to slow down and treat yo’self. (And not just on V-Day, but every day.)

Yep, shopping yourself to serenity is possible with our pro picks — and tips from experts and real mamas. Enjoy!

5. Make time for a mini massage.
6. Take your daily smoothie to *cosmic* nutritional levels.
7. Lubricate your love life.

9. Perk up (your body *and* mind) with Pilates.
Ah, Pilates. It’s that workout that looks like it might be kind of complicated thanks to the crazy equipment and seemingly choreographed classes you see on Instagram — but in reality, it’s an extremely approachable workout that’s awesome for easing into exercise. Bonus? It’s particularly beneficial for moms, thanks to all the improvements to core strength (less back pain, plz/thx!), pelvic health (meaning it can help with issues like urinary incontinence and diastasis recti) and muscle tone (say no more). And best yet, you can find Club Pilates’ warm, inviting studios all across the country. Rates start at $25 for a single session, but don’t sleep on the discounted class packages or unlimited monthly/yearly options for more savings. Pssst: Right now, Club Pilates is offering a freebie intro class *and* waiving the sign-up fee at participating studios.
