When given with love, every gift is special. But when that same gift is also helpful? That’s a real win-win. As busy moms with busy families, we’re always on the lookout for products that can improve the ways we go about the day. After all, the more time and energy we have available to make memories with our families, the better!
Here are 10 unique and brilliant gifts that solve mamas’ problems.
A hydration drink made for mamas
We all know that mamas have unique needs—especially while pregnant, nursing or just trying to keep up with active kids. Greater Than is a safe, no-added-sugar hydration drink chosen by more than 250,000 moms (and counting!). Crafted with a tasty blend of organic coconut water, non-GMO fruit juices, real sea salt and monkfruit for natural sweetness, drinking Greater Than can help support milk supply, ease muscle cramps and even keep your immune system strong. (And, yes, Greater Than is loved by kids and dads, too!)
Save 20% on your purchase of Greater Than with the code MOTHERLY at checkout.
The Short Years
An app to help you actually finish baby books
There’s the joke that the firstborn in a family has a thorough, complete baby book… while the third, fourth or fifth kids are lucky to even have their name spelled correctly. It’s a popular joke because, well, there can be a lot of truth to it. And that’s if your first kid is lucky enough to even get a full baby book!
The makers of The Short Years know that struggle is real. That’s why they set out to create a simple-to-use app that helps mamas work on their baby books with minimal effort. You start with a beautiful, hardcover book bound by three rings. Then, as you complete “chapters” through the app, the personalized pages are sent to you to easily add to the book. It’s so easy and rewarding, you’ll want to continue on with The Toddler Years next!
