Gift Ideas to Pamper and for Wellness
Give the gift of Totem – the feel-good game, social skills game for family or team building. Foster and strengthen positive relationships by playing a conversation card game that encourages people to look at their bright side.
These fun affirmation cards can help lift you up. Created by comedian Suzi Barrett, these inspirational-but-not-cheesy affirmation cards can make a fabulous gift.
You also might enjoy gifting (or receiving) these lovely sheets. They are super soft and affordably priced!
“For those on a tighter budget, California Design Den offers ethically made, beautifully tailored pure combed cotton sateen sheets that are impressively cozy.” -Boston Globe.
And this amazing towel! Mizutowel, the world’s best bacterial fighting towel, is a self-cleaning & impurity-sensing smart textile made of pure silver, Xinjiang cotton, and smart-dyes.
I gotta say, there’s nothing better than new, cozy Pajamas and a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter night. That’s why PJs are one of my favorite gifts to get! Check out Big Feet Pajama Co for some fun selections and get a Family Matching PJs set or my personal favorite, Adult Footed PJs!
If your loved one is really into fitness or outdoor activities, you should really check out these amazing bone-conducting headphones! You can read more in my review, but they sit over your cheekbones rather than inside your ears as buds and allow you to hear the world around you. Great for biking (and also for listening to audiobooks when you still need to hear your kiddos getting in trouble).
And if you love your mutt but don’t know your dog’s breed details, here’s a fun doggie breed identification kit called Embark to find out!

Gift ideas for the Pregnant Mom-to-be and New Moms
New moms love baby keepsakes. But many moms don’t have time to sit down and make a beautiful album. The lovely mama at Snap Diva Designs creates gorgeous scrapbooking sets and even will put together a baby album for you. She makes premade and custom mini albums for any event (weddings, baby showers, birthdays, etc.). Check out a gorgeous example of a recent custom album!
A gift idea that fills so many needs and uses is a lovely laundry basket or toy basket. Check out this lovely Timeyard Baby Laundry Basket. This one is a Cotton Rope Basket
This laundry basket is wonderful! It holds two loads of our family laundry without batting an eye. It is comfortable to carry and sturdy! I’m definitely a fan and happy to have one for myself.
This super awesome baby carrier from Ergobaby! Because it allows a mama to hold the baby close, while still having her hands free. I loved mine and sad that my toddler has exceeded the weight at which I can carry him around for very long.
Swaddle blankets that help the baby, therefore the parents, sleep better are a must! The Zen Swaddle simulates the pressure from your touch with lightly weighted pads on their chest and sides. I just gave one of these as a baby shower gift because they are such a great swaddle!
A great Multi-purpose Caddy Organizer called a Mimmo Caddy. It gives you the added space and flexibility to organize all the baby stuff.

Each product sold supports a day of education and life skills mentorship for an underprivileged girl in a third world country with Room to Read Charity. Thoughts Accessories items are pretty, feminine, classy, and dainty!
A huge mom life hack is the gift of Amazon Prime! 2-day (or sometimes less) shipping on baby essentials and items that tame toddler meltdowns are a must!
You know what makes a great gift? A gift of not needing to go grocery shopping! Give the gift of Shipt and let the groceries deliver themselves!
To make dinner time easier for your working mom friend (or wife), you might consider one of these lovely kitchen appliances.

Each weekly plan includes a supply list and activities broken down to know exactly what to do in a simple sentence or two.
How about these awesome Lotus Trolley Bags to help organize grocery shopping and promote a sustainable lifestyle at the same time? Especially useful if you live in areas where plastic bag use is restricted. We live on Oahu now and reusable bags are a must-have for grocery shopping! They also make grocery shopping faster since you can organize as you shop!
