You owe them your sanity; with you virtually (even if only by emojis) everyone of the 8 night feeds you were get up for, bringing you a coffee (that you didn’t have to make or reheat) on a rough day, and comforting you at those ugly feeling-like-you’re-never-doing-enough mom moments.
They’re your people, they understand you, they feel you, THEY’RE YOUR MOM SQUAD!
This is the first time we’ve included gifts from a mom, to a mom and we sorta’ feel GITTY about the whole collection. All very meaningful gifts that we know any mama, no matter what stage of motherhood, would love to recieve this Christmas Holiday.
So, without further ado, I give you our first, of five 2017 Holiday Gift Gides…
FOR YOUR MOM SQUAD:
Nothing says “thanks for sticking with me throughout my crazy days” more than a monthly subscription to a box completely geared towards making your time-of-the-month enjoyable. Lets face it, after 2 kids aunt flow comes back with vengeance, and at this point ANYTHING that offers organic chemical-free fem-products, chocolate and a good face mask just before your time of the month is a total game changer; especially when it comes from a friend!
I mean, if I could gift good-hair-days, it would be my first choice, but the last time I looked in the mirror I wasn’t a 70-year old, gown wearing, godmother, so a hat is the next best thing. Slap a proud title on there, MAMA, and consider it the next best gift to a personal hair stylist living in your washroom.

When was the last time you actually sent a photo to the printers? Who even has time for that anymore? DEFINITELY not your mama-friends! And this is why they would appreciate an Instax Mini 90 from Fujifilm. Printing pictures instantly, they can cover that fridge of theirs in their cute little offsprings mugs, tuck one in their wallet, and make the most adorable little love notes for their kids lunches. What could be better?
A tracker is a tracker is a tracker? NOPE. Not even a little. You guys the Leaf by Bellabeat is the only tracker your mama friend needs. Not only does it do what she wants, track her fitness, but it tracks her menstrual cycle, her sleeping patterns and even her stress levels, alerting and helping with meditation and guided breathing. It’s pretty much the perfect gift for any woman, anywhere. End of story.
Baby #1 you tracked what she ate, when she slept, soiled herself, you got all the records. Baby #2, well they’re lucky if they get a nap between swim class and school pick-up. This goes the same for Milestones and big moments you hope to never forget, and that’s where Qeepsake comes in handy. They text you questions about your child, where you can reply, include stories and pictures and eventually end up with a collection of baby memories which they make into a gorgeous book for you. It’s genius, and yes a mom designed it.
If it’s not a huge baby bag, then it’s just a wallet and that’s it… FREE AS A DAMN BIRD! Going out without the baby bag feels so exhilarating when it happens, but where, where do you put the keys (it’s taking you away on this sanity break), the wallet (for your Starbucks of course), and your phone (because if you don’t document the kid-free night, did it even happen). This Skipper Shoulder Pouch by Lug is pretty much the perfect go-everywhere purse for your mama friend. Small, cute and pockets for all their non-kid stuff.
