Here’s something my newer readers may not know… When I’m not testing out the latest makeup collections, I’m a full-time Mommy to two beautiful, bouncing (and I literally mean bouncing) boys.
In my personal (but experienced) opinion, pregnancy is incredibly taxing on the body and spirit. If you are hunting for the perfect holiday gift for a Mom-to-be, or the precious newcomer, here are some terrific pampering gift ideas! Tuck one of these inexpensive gift sets under the tree, and be proclaimed a hero!
|Mustela has earned the reputation as a one-stop-shop for Mom and Baby for good reason. The company has been around for over 50 years! If you know a mom-to-be, Mustela’s “Pregnancy Program” is a great intro to some beauty products that make pregnancy easier on the body: Stretch Marks Double Action, Specific Support Bust, Instant Comfort Legs and Ultimate Hydration. Retail price is $22. Click HERE to buy it from Mustela.com.|
|Mama Mio was my personal “go-to” brand during my second pregnancy. Mama Mio’s ”Congratulations Kit” is a great way to celebrate the great news and treat Mommy like a queen. This kit contains: Tummy Rub Oil (to help prevent stretchmarks), OMega Super-rich Body Cream (a moisturizing treat that features the line’s divine Gravida signature scent) and OMega Shower Cream. Retail price is $55. Click HERE to buy it from MamaMio.com.|
|Moms know this shocking fact… “Baby” powder is, in fact, dangerous for use on babies! The tiny particles can irritate baby’s tender lungs. But if you love that familiar scent as I do, Noodle and Boo is the brand to choose. Noodle and Boo baby products smell exactly like baby powder, and come in the most beautiful nursery-worthy packaging! The “Special Delivery” set at left includes luxe bath-time treats: soft lotion, extra gentle shampoo, soothing body wash and a luxe washcloth for bathtime. The kit also comes with their (totally addictive) Ultimate Cleansing Cloths. Retail price is $35. Click HERE to buy it from NoodleandBoo.com.|
|You may not realize this, but many of the drugstore brands that come to mind when you think of bathtime for baby are simply not gentle enough for baby’s skin! I learned this lesson the hard way, when a popular baby wash caused my sensitive-skinned little one to break out in hives! Founded by a mother with a similar dilemma, California Baby offers gentle bath and body products for babies who are allergy-prone or have sensitive skin. The Calming Newborn Tote, pictured at left, retails for $19.99. Click HERE to shop CaliforniaBaby.com.|
|Founded by a doctor and his wife, Belli products take an analytical approach to skincare. They’re the perfect choice for a brainy Mom-to-be. Not only are the products allergy tested, but they are free of artificial dyes, fragrances, phthalates, and xenoestrogens (ingredients which can interfere with development of the reproductive system). The “Bundle of Joy” gift set, pictured at left, retails for a mere $14.99! Click HERE to shop the entire line at BelliSkincare.com.|
