This Sunday, May 8th is Mother’s Day and we wanted to send our heartfelt wishes to all the Mamas and Mamas-to-Be for the Happiest Mother Day, filled with love, family, and maybe some extra sleep! (every mom’s dream, right??) For anyone looking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift (hint, hint gentlemen!) we have rounded up a few great items for both the busy mom on the go and also for the nesting Mama, waiting on baby to arrive.
Let’s face it, once baby arrives, they come with a lot of stuff, and the majority of that stuff needs to travel with them (and you) when you leave the house. Trading your purse in for a diaper bag is a serious transition so the bag you carry should definitely be one that you love! Enter the Charlie Bag from Timi and Leslie. The perfect gift this mother’s day, this vegan faux leather bag comes with extra accessories to keep you totally organized and stylish. Insulated bottle holders, stroller clips, a change pad, and a separate mini clutch that you can hold your personal essentials and travel with you whenever you are solo and not wanting to take a whole bag with you. This bag has it all and will last well beyond the baby years.
The Tula Carrier is a popular mom favourite and is a great gift for the mama who is looking for a little bit of freedom and mobility, while still keeping baby close. Available in so many great patterns and styles, this carrier is easy to use, versatile and can be used up until four years old with many babies!
A great gift this year would be to relieve the burden of mom guilt! We all worry so much that we aren’t doing enough, spending enough time, teaching enough, feeding them the right things, or documenting all of the amazing milestones they do manage to achieve despite their underachieving mothers. These Milestone Cards are a great way to easily snap a quick picture to document those special moments in pregnancy and throughout baby’s early years and are also a great reminder of things that are actually noteworthy. No crafting or exceptional DIY required, these cards do all the talking so you can worry about documenting them in that baby book you’ve been meaning to start whenever you have time (like just in time for a High school graduation present?)
This next “mom essential” is another great bag that can be used as a diaper bag and also as a purse. Little Unicorn is a well loved brand for moms (those swaddles, though!) and we think this Rotunda Bag is the perfect piece to accompany you to both Baby Picasso and then take you back to work as your briefcase. This bag is stylish and functional and zips completely closed to avoid losing your entire mom life contents within.
For those Mamas-to-Be, baby might not be here yet, but he is already wreaking havoc on your body. Before babe arrives and every moment is dedicated to taking care of him, take a minute to pamper yourself. This Mama’s Morning Tea is the perfect pause for your day. Blended with stomach settling Ginger Root and Spearmint, a safe hint of Peppermint, Chamomile and Lemon Balm, this tea is a great way to keep nausea at bay and wake up feeling somewhat like a human.
Another great way to treat the pregnant mama-to-be this weekend is with this Mom Pack. Complete with belly jelly and leg & back cream, it is the perfect combination to sooth the skin during pregnancy. The pregnant body goes through lots of changes and anything you can do to treat yourself is well deserved!
And the last treat is quite possibly one of the coziest gifts you could give or receive for Mother’s Day (and we won’t judge you if you buy this gift for yourself!) We have partnered up with our favourite new Mom-to-Be, Jillian Harris to help her navigate this overwhelming world of preparing for life with a baby. Jillian already knows a thing or two about how to treat herself to comfort and has gone so far as creating her own line of AH-Mazing pyjamas and clothing to make sure her comfies are the coziest. These Pyjamas by Jillian Harris for Privilege always sell out, so if you can get your hands on a pair, consider it a total mom score.
As a mom you will find your life turned upside down, will discover that you had more courage than you knew you could possess, your heart will grow so big that you think it might explode, and you will have truly earned the best title- Mom.
We’d like to treat one lucky Mom to a pampering prize pack for Mother’s Day. Our BMTB (Best-Mom-To-Be), Jillian Harris has teamed up with us to give away a set of her amazing pyjamas (the most comfortable things you will ever wear) and we are throwing in our favourite Earth Angel Mama Baby Tea for Mamas and a Mom Pack.
