For the New Mom...

The pregnant mama or mom of a newborn could really use sleep, but since you can't offer her that this Christmas, do something sweet and simple that celebrates this time in her life.
New moms love things like:
- A manicure/pedicure gift certificate
- Free babysitting
- A cozy robe to pad around the house in on chilly winter days
- This beautiful baby book to help her mark the important moments
For the Overwhelmed Mama...
She needs to slow down, so focus on things that can facilitate that process for her. Moms of toddlers, elementary kids, and teens get so caught up in carpools and soccer practice, potlucks and homework help, deadlines and date nights, it's often that they don't have time to relax and take care of themselves.
Try these self care gifts for busy moms:
- Spa day (with champagne!)
- A gift certificate to a local coffee shop
- A beautiful leather-bound journal for writing down her thoughts
- Wind-down candle, like these favorites of ours by Mejori
For the Mom Who Really DOES Have it All...
