Struggling with what to get some of the women on your shopping list for Christmas or birthdays? This Mommy & Me gift guide, specially put together for new moms should be your one-stop-shop for all the mommies on your list, and the answer to the centuries old question, “What do I get a new mom for Christmas or her birthday?”
One of the worst things about shopping for my kids is knowing that whatever I buy them will have a shelf life of about 2 weeks. After that, they wind up broken or hiding under their bunk bed. As a mom on a budget, I just want to spend money on them wisely, on things that they’ll get lots of use out of, things that last. The following three toys are guaranteed to last them as long as they play with them. The foam floor tiles will protect your child’s noggin when they’re playing hard, and help their toys last longer when they’re dropped, thrown, or trampled on. And wooden blocks are a classic. You can never go wrong with wooden blocks. They’re a trusted toy for an enormous range of child.
TOYS THAT LAST
RELAXATION FOR MOM AND BABY
New moms are always missing out on sleep and very few of them actually take time for themselves on a regular basis. Urge the mommy on your list to relax with or without her baby, and to teach her baby to relax from a young age. It’s a practice we could all…practice. Organic Aromas is a phenomenal brand. It is “comprised of a group of passionate, experienced health care professionals dedicated to enriching and improving the lives of people all over the world using a unique form of aromatherapy that combines an exclusively designed nebulizing diffuser with pure, organic essential oils and their specially formulated blends.”
I was recently stuck on what to get my son for Christmas and someone suggested a box subscription. I hadn’t even considered it before, but it’s a great idea, especially for busy moms who want the best for themselves and their babies but don’t want to have to hit the stores on a regular basis. Check out the Bulu Box Original & Weight Loss and the Beauty Box 5 for the busy mom on your list! She’ll be thanking you for months to come.
GORGEOUS MOM NECESSITIES
Show me a new mom who doesn’t need some beauty products to help her feel like the bombshell she is, and I’ll show you a mom with a makeup artist on staff. For moms who aren’t movie stars but want to feel like one, these gifts should be at the top of your list. The Baja Bronze Eyeshadow and Bronzer palette is a travel-friendly, 8-shade bronzer palette that will give the new mom glow a “I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night” glow when she really didn’t. The Pur-lisse Skin Survival Kit is another necessity for moms whose hormones are making their skin wonky. 100% of the proceeds from this kit will go to the Personal Care Products Council Foundation to benefit Look Good Feel Better. And the Luv2kiss™ 4 Piece Lip Glitter Set will set of sparks in three fun colors – red, gold, or fuchsia. I don’t know a single gal who has grown out of loving glitter, and this lip glitter adhesive and glitter pots are the perfect growing up that glitter needed to go from girly to glam.
