Spending money on our kids comes easy, but splurging on ourselves is a tough one. We're quick to pass up that new gift we've been eyeing when tiny shoes or educational books for our little ones are on the list. Now is the time to spoil yourself and grab one (or all) of these toddler mom must-haves.

Noise-Canceling Headphones
It's hard not to laugh when you think of all the reasons a mom needs a new way to block out noise. The list is long. But pick up a pair in the name of self-care. Turn on your favorite podcast or audiobook, close your eyes, and take a 5-minute staycation. Those few minutes of peace provide a great reset during a hectic day.
