If you’re still mulling over what to get mom for Mother’s Day, we’d love to offer you some advice: The best gifts to receive are the ones we’d never buy for ourselves, so close out that 1-800-Flowers browser and take a minute to think about what she actually wants. Peace and quiet? A little me-time? Good behavior? While we can’t help you with that last one, nothing says self-care like a good old-fashioned massage. And with the Hydragun massage gun, she can get one anytime, anywhere.
At-home massage guns have been around for years, but this one is special...just like her kids. Its uniqueness lies in the motor that’s powered by a proprietary smoothing technology, meaning it’s the quietest device on the market. (Imagine that: A toy that doesn’t talk, sing or make animal noises.) So the new mom can melt away neck tension without waking the baby, while the veteran of three can work on her quads without disrupting the latest Disney movie.
On top of the sturdy build, narrow grip and lightweight design, the Hydragun also comes with six different attachments and six different speeds, all engineered to target a specific muscle group. And with a six-hour battery life, she won’t have to charge it up after every use or be tethered to an outlet. The active mama will squeal in excitement when she opens this gift, while the older mama will insist it’s too much, then text you three days later admitting she’s never felt better (and refuses to share it with her husband).
At $300, the Hydragun ain’t cheap. But considering other versions can set you back $600 plus, we’d say it’s a pretty good deal. After all, mom deserves nothing but the best, right?
