It’s that time of year again! Father’s Day is upon us and for most, it can be one of the most mind boggling holidays when it comes to what to get that special father figure in our life. For some reason Mother’s Day seems to be a breeze when it comes to gift giving, but Father’s Day, not so much. This day is all about showing Dad just how much you love and appreciate him and all of the hard work he puts in, but what if he’s one of those guys that has everything?
Motherhood is hard. Especially when you haven’t gotten a chance to get into the groove of things. But it’s also a role that should be showered with appreciation. I mean, where would we be without our moms, right? Here are 5 gifts for the new mom this holiday season.
5 Gifts For The New Mom This Holiday Season
Fourth Trimester Box
When you have a baby, nothing is about you anymore–except this box. This is a box of goodies dedicated entirely to mom. Everything from a little notepad and pen to a blanket that doubles as a scarf and nursing cover has been put together for mom. My favorite part of the box? The jelly beans!
FujiFilm Instax Mini
Yes, I know. We all take photos with our cameras but how often do we get those developed? I got one of these from a conference and love capturing little moments of my kids. The best pictures though? The ones that Mini captures when we aren’t looking. Oh, and grab the case too because it’s cute.
Itzy Ritzy Diaper Bag
I love mine. There are pockets for everything and I love how easy it is to keep organized. And I really love how it’s so “me”. Sure, I’m a mom of 3 but I’m also Aaronica who’s always on the go. My Posey backpack makes life so much easier while I look cute doing it!
Lucille Nursing Nightgown
Sure, we’re moms but we like to feel like regular people too. This nursing gown from Kindred Bravely is not only beautiful while making breastfeeding easier, but it feels amazing when on. Also, their nursing bras are so incredible as well. They fit perfectly.
Contigo Water Bottle

And by her I should have just said me because I would love any of these gifts! But I also think that most women would love to receive any one of these gifts so without further adieu, here is my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide For Her!

A Tea Diffusing Tea Pot
Did you hear that Teavana is going out of business? Not that it’s something to celebrate BUT if you have a tea drinker in your life this pot + some clearance Tea makes a great gift!
Fancy Cup For Water
Donut Shaped Magnetic Pin Cushion
An Essential Oil Diffuser
The Updated Polaroid Camera
Cute and Functional Bag
So what are you going to get the special lady in your life this holiday season?
I’m ashamed it took me to this long to find out and fall in love with a local eco-friendly baby boutique called Happy Mango. But these things happen. Now that I’ve fallen in love, I have to share the love with the masses. Being eco-friendly while single is way easier than it is when you’ve got minions running around but places like Happy Mango make it possible. And with Mother’s Day right around the corner, I’m sharing six of my must-have products for every mom.
6 Must-Have Products from Happy Mango
Nope, these dope amber necklaces ARE NOT just for your babies. I know, for so long we’ve been buying them just for the littles to help with teething but they help US with headaches! And with little ones, headaches are sure to come. Instead of popping pain relievers or searching for your beloved essential oils, wear this!
Yes, we all want our pre-baby bodies back and that includes our vaginas and bladders! Do you sneeze and have a little trickle? Jump rope and leave a little puddle? No one wants this for their lives!! Not only will this baby help with your bladder control but it’ll get those vaginal muscles working even stronger than before.
Listen, let’s keep it real. Kids crying can lead you to the bottle but if you’re still nursing, this isn’t always an option. Or if you’re committed to that post-baby snap back and you’re watching your calories drinking may not be for you either. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of the stress through coloring! Color away your tears!
I love doing my nails and my girls love having their nails done. What I don’t love is using harsh chemicals to remove the nail polish from our nails once it’s gone rogue. This nail polish remover is harsh-chemical free!
Yes, moms like sex. But sometimes navigating sexuality post-baby isn’t as easy as you would think. This is a great resource.
And since we’re talking about sex, there’s nothing like setting the mood properly with something that smells divine, won’t pollute your air, gives nice ambiance and helps with a massage. All that tension from #momlife dissipates!
Check out the Happy Mango site and let me know what must-haves you would add!
Can you believe that another holiday season is upon us? I can’t. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was making New Year resolutions to getting my life together and now, well, the year is over! Being a #SmallBusiness owner myself, I thought it was important to highlight the small businesses that that have amazing products for this year’s gift guide.
2016 #SmallBusiness Holiday Gift Guide
I’ve put together a holiday gift guide this year that focused on a couple different categories to represent the loved ones in your life so be sure to flip through and see what is being offered for them! These categories include the traditional baby, kids, his/her gifts with the addition of sections for the seamstress in your life (ahem), the planner junkie (ahem), and the entrepreneur (ahem). Ok, so basically I put together a gift guide of things that I would love myself! I kid but not–I do have rather great taste though!
I’m proud to say that some of my friends are listed in here and are doing some rather big things. For the entrepreneurs, Iyanna is offering something that we all need so be sure to check her out by 11/30 and see how she can help take your business to the next level. My girl Elly (who also has guest posted here!) has a coloring book just for us women! And Sili will have all of us organized just in time for the new year.
That’s just to name a few greats that are in there. I could say more but then that would take away from all the grueling hours that I put in to create a unique gift guide that you all would appreciate! So without further adieu, I bring you the 2016 #SmallBusiness Holiday Gift Guide!
