The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer, and the flowers are starting to bloom—it must be spring! If you’re like most busy moms out there, your spring cleaning checklist probably includes lots of things like scrubbing the floors, washing windows, and maybe even cleaning out your car (ew!). But don’t forget to add this checklist of items every mom needs from Amazon this spring to your cleaning routine, too! From cute outfits for the kids to make you smile again to healthy lunch options that you can take on-the-go, these items will help you through the season in style.
1) Best cookware set
Cookware matters. The right cookware can help make a meal so much more enjoyable, but buying quality cookware can be expensive. A high-quality set of stainless steel pots and pans might cost $150 or more for 12 pieces, which can hurt your wallet—but if you’re a mom who cooks often (and/or wants to), these are essential tools that will last for years.
2) The best kindle for reading in bed
The Kindle Paperwhite ($120) is hands-down our favorite e-reader for reading in bed. At 8 weeks old, it might seem a little pricey to drop $120 on an electronic reader. But trust us, it’s worth every penny. Thanks to its built-in light, the Paperwhite is easily readable in any light situation—even bright sunshine streaming through your windows when you’re catching up on your reading on that vacation you so desperately need.
3) A hammock for the backyard
A hammock is a great way to relax after a long day. Whether you’re reading a book, napping or just having some alone time, there’s nothing like taking a break with one of these. If you’re looking for relaxation, look no further than our favorite portable hammocks from Amazon. You can pick one up at an affordable price and enjoy yourself any time of day.
4) A yoga mat you can use at home or on vacation
I never travel without my trusty Yogitoes towel. I don’t care if I’m staying in a five-star hotel or a rustic cottage, my Yogitoes is what keeps me grounded during meditation and ensures that I have something to use as a pillow when lying on hard surfaces. With its nonslip fabric and extra-large size, it is so comfortable that you won’t even think about taking it off when you need to shower after your practice.
5) Versatile pieces that work in any room
Whether you’re a mom or not, there’s no reason why you can’t benefit from having multi-purpose decor items in your house. For example, if it works as a piece of art and could also be used as a towel rack, buy it! These pieces are great for small spaces that don’t have too much storage.
6) Baby gear you need without breaking the bank
At some point in every mom’s life, she’ll need to buy something for her kid. And while we think most of these purchases should be made by instinct and not researched into oblivion, sometimes you just want a little guidance before you start clicking add to cart. After all, Amazon is synonymous with saving money—but that doesn’t mean it can only be used for buying household goods like laundry detergent and toilet paper.
7) The best luggage tag out there
When it comes to buying luggage, you get what you pay for. But if you’re planning on traveling often, investing in a good piece is worth it. The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere Trolley Bag has four wheels and 360-degree spinner movement so that no matter where your baggage lands, you can pull it from any direction and keep moving.
