We’re all a little crazed during the holidays. But the non-stop celebrations (Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwaanza and New Year’s!) can be especially hectic for a new mother. She’s still settling into mommyhood, while also managing the household festivities. She deserves a break. Give her the gift of pampering (for her and her little one) with these wonderful natural beauty and baby products.
Poofy Organics Mommy & Me Basket – This adorable gift basket includes five USDA Certified Organic products both mom and baby can enjoy. Poofy’s Preventative Stretch Mark Butter and Happy Boobies Nipple Cream goes to mom, while baby gets Happy Tush diaper balm, an all-natural oil and a gentle SLS-free baby wash/shampoo. The gift comes in a wood planter that can be used for flowers or herbs later in the year. Items sold separately at $45.50. Holiday special (through December 31): $35.00
Give a mom the gift of baby soft kisses with this Lip Care Kit from Intelligent Nutrients.
