For every mom
Clean skin care
When I was pregnant, I had to revamp my makeup/skincare because it wasn’t safe for pregnancy. It opened my eyes to a whole world of non-toxic living. Diving into this topic can be a deep dark hole, but I know if we can at least replace one or two steps in skincare with a clean alternative, our bodies and biggest organ (skin) will thank us. It’s a gift that will give mom something useful and you some peace of mind. I trust everything from Tula, Ilia, and Beautycounter but will round up my fav product from each – great for any and every mama!
The face filter blurring and moisturizing primer is a cult favorite for good reason. Apply as the last step of your skincare routine or the first step of your makeup routine for a blurring beauty effect. It’s perfect for the minimalistic mom who loves a no-makeup makeup daily look and it matches your skin tone with a little glow so no need to guess a shade. If mom already knows and loves Tula, go for the best-selling Routine bundle!
Lips, cheeks, eyeshadow… this little magic stick really wakes up the skin beautifully. I’ll dab it on my cheeks, bridge of my nose (s/o TikTok), lips, and even my eyelids on days I need to look in the mirror and feel like I slept a few hours and saw the sun. I love Ilia’s clean ingredients and inclusivity of all ages and skin tones.
The no-makeup makeup look is not only trendy, it’s practical. Mama raised me right introducing me to Beautycounter (and the importance of daily SPF) a long time ago. This tinted moisturizer does a lot with a little, and a new mom or grandma will appreciate this one-step glow all the same.
Summer stay-cay inspo
Summer’s coming, the sun is shining, and we’re all itching to getaway. Inspire mom with these staycation or vacation goodies.
I don’t know about y’all, but I always have room in my heart and house for more sunnies. One for every occasion, every outfit. It’s a bad-but-oh-so-good addiction that doesn’t hurt anyone. The best part about these Diff eyewear cuties? BOGO! One for mom, one for you. 🙂
This sun hat looks good on everyone’s head plus Brixton is a brand you’ll know and love forever. I know, because I have my own little collection 😉 Also, you can pair it with classic, universally flattering swimwear from Summersalt and Girlfriend Collective. If you don’t want to guess a mom’s style, spoil her with a gift card!
For the new mom
New mom here *raises hand.* There’s one thing I’m wishing for and two things I think every mom needs below! Also- if you’re running low on time or budget, here are some things every new mom wishes for: free hours of babysitting while mom treats herself to a mani, pedi, and/or massage.
Perfect for a push present or first Mother’s Day, this simple, sweet gift is foolproof.
Lifesaver. Getting out of the house, getting work done, strapping baby up with grandma… this baby carrier is raved about for good reason. If you have a new mom in your life who doesn’t yet have this, gift it!
My mom’s not a regular grandma. She’s a cool grandma. These two aesthetically pleasing and practical gifts are on brand for her + a little sentimental treat for the newest addition to the grandkid squad.
This bag is timeless, functional, and *pretty.* With three young grandkids, my mom is always on the go with lots of wipes, diapers, burp cloths, etc. packed into her purse. As a handy add-on, pair with this tote insert that you can easily transfer from diaper bag to grandma’s tote when she’s on baby duty!
This pan earned its name – at least in our household. It is the *only* pan I use for *everything.* Or, er, the only pan Alex uses for everything 😉 For anyone who spends time in the kitchen, this pan does it all and does not disappoint.
And of course, April showers bring May flowers…flowers always make mom smile. Currently crushing on everything that Farmgirl Flowers offers and stands for! Oh, and do not forget the handwritten card with I love yous and thanks. Every mom deserves LimitLes love and thanks!
