Give Mom a fun and unique gift this year that will help her bring two of the things together she loves most – Being a Mother and Practicing Yoga!
This fun Teach My Fish and Learn Yoga Mat™ not only helps Mom get in her workout for the day (as we all know that can be next to impossible with little ones around!) But also gives her the opportunity to involve her children in what she loves, and gives her the chance to do some teaching too – which we all know Mother’s are Naturally Amazing at!
This fun interactive yoga mat is designed to encourage active learning, and is great for children ages 3 and up! Research has shown that children who move while learning may absorb more. Plus, physical activity is important for a healthy mind and body. This playful yoga mat helps Mom teach her young child how to master the alphabet, as well as learn numbers, shapes and colors, all while on the move!
In fact, using this mat with your child can help promote not just literacy, numeracy, and physical activity, but also helps children improve motor skills, spatial awareness, and problem-solving too!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this year – we’re thinking outside the box. The best thing about mums is they appreciate everything nice you do for them. So, no matter what you choose it’s bound to get them smiling. But instead of opting for the usual fresh flowers and box of chocolates, it’s time to get creative and show how much she really means to you!
Grabbing some last-minute blooms is the easy thing to do for Mother’s Day. Whilst flowers do send a beautiful message and brighten everyone’s day up, it’s nice to change things around too. Like dad always getting the standard socks and tie on Father’s Day, mum deserves to be truly spoilt. We’ve taken some of the hard work out for you and come up with a few unique ideas that’ll show mum how much you care this Mother’s Day:
The most important date of your relationship will soon be upon you, and you don’t want a boring gift that you could buy any day of the year. Anniversaries are a landmark. They make you look back on all the time you have spent with your special someone; how they were there for you during a difficult time, the fights you’ve worked through, and the triumphs they celebrated with you. So whether you’re celebrating your wedding anniversary or remembering the very start of your relationship, here are some thoughtful gifts that will say “Here’s to the next five years.”
What a difference a year makes. The traditional gift to mark your first anniversary is paper; simple, to be sure, but paper can cover a lot of things. You could choose to acknowledge the paper in the card you gift her, or a more heartwarming gift could be a journal, or handmade storybook about your first year together.
A more contemporary gift for a first anniversary is any gold jewelry with no specified stone. An infinity name necklace made of gold is both personal and has a beautiful message implied in the symbol. Make it more meaningful by engraving both your names on the necklace.
Valentine’s day is almost here! Looking for an outside-the-box gift for your Valentine this year that will have her squealing with delight? I’ve complied my top 4 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her, that aren’t chocolates for flowers! (Although you may find chocolate in some of these products!)
These are some favorites among many women, and are super versatile no matter what your Valentine’s Personality. These gifts are some of my favorites and make great gifts that will treat her not just on V-day, but throughout the whole year as well!
1. Sabon – The Chocolate Collection for Valentines Day. – Chocolate Scented Candle, Cocoa Butter Body Cream, and Chocolate Lip Balm. Ok I did sneak in some chocolate here, but only because you can’t go wrong with it when it comes to women and Valentine’s Day. The chocolate scent of these fun beauty products are sure to bring a big smile to her face. The candle makes a great idea for an at-home date night dinner, as the yummy chocolate scent delights all the senses!
2. Alex and Ani – The Design for Charity Piece of Jewelry. The Living Water Charm Bangle is Beautiful and something she will love to wear year round. I love that it’s not your standard piece of fine jewelry and diamond we so often see on Valentine’s Day. If your Valentine is into philanthropy or has a big heart for a good cause, she will love knowing that 20% of the profits on the sale of this bracelet will be donated to Living Water International, (with a minimum donation of $25,000) – a non-profit organization devoted to demonstrating divine love by providing communities desperately needed safe water.
The bracelet is also good for the earth, if she happens to be conscious of the earth and her footprint on it! The elegant bracelet is handmade in Rhode Island, made of recycled materials, is nickel-free, and comes in a beautiful gold or silver finish. One size fits all!
They also have cute heart and Valentine’s day specific bangles too if you’d rather go the traditional amount or got a real romantic Valentine on your hands!
3. For the Vegan: Lovely Spa bath and Body products by SpaRitual
SpaRitual is widely known for their lovely nail polishes that hold strong and come in a huge variety of beautiful colors! But they also make an amazing line of body care too, including a fabulous cruelty-free vegan line!
I’m personally loving the passionfruit agave body soufflé and nourishing oil for hair and body! These products are incredibly hydrating and leave skin feeling amazingly soft and smooth too! These products are fabulous for your Valentine to get in some self-love with an at-home pampering spa treatment!
4. Beautiful Romance Art from Art.com for the Art Lover or Woman who loves beautiful Home Decor.
I love this super romantic piece from Kate Carrigan, that I would swoon just looking at anyway, but knowing this came from my Valentine, and remembering our romantic, love-filled Valentine’s Evening we had together, would have me all smiles and in love every time I looked at it!
You can also buy all art work and photography from art.com framed, or on a canvas, so its all ready to go for your Valentine this V-day!
Hopefully these 4 gift ideas will help you surprise your Valentine this year with something totally unexpected and out of the box, that will make her smile and feel the love I know you so badly want to show her!
