Gina I.: Lush Bath Bombs are the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day. Each bath bomb is loaded with essential oils, creating a blissful bathing experience.
YETI Rambler Stackable Mug
Amy S.: As far as I’m concerned, an insulated, spill proof mug is essential for moms on morning duty. This mug is the best; the insulated design keeps your coffee hot for a long time and the “magslider” lid means you can close up the top and prevent spills by little ones. But the shape and size of the mug still feels comfortable and, for lack of a better word, homey (unlike some of the monstrous insulated travel mugs I’ve seen). I use mine every. Single. Morning. In fact, I never drink from any of our other mugs anymore. And to top it off (pun intended), it’s dishwasher safe.
Funktional Wearables Fitbit Jewelry
Gina I.: The Rosie bracelet conceals mom's Fitbit so she can wear it anywhere! The stacked bracelet looks is great and very on trend right now! Funktional Wearables makes accessories for all brands of activity trackers, perfect for the mom who is health-conscious and stylish.
Himalayan Glow Pink Crystal Salt Lamp

Wireless Color Photo Printer
Molly Weber: Ok, so we all know that it's not very expensive to send photos out to be printed and picked up or shipped to your house. However, somehow I still find myself looking at picture frames around my house that haven't been updated in years. These printers would allow you to easily and immediately print photos right from your smartphone (check for compatibility) and update your picture frames in minutes!
Only Love Today: Reminders to Breathe More, Stress Less, and Choose Love
Erin P.: This is a great book with small (totally manegable!) reflections about managing life, love and daily stresses. Rachel Macy Stafford guides the reader toward realizing 'hey I'm not perfect, but I always have the choice to respond with love.' This seems like a great gift for the "new mom" who already has a tot or two (or more!) under her wing and is trying to figure out how to "do it all."
Philips Wake-Up Light with Sunrise Simulation
Gina I.: Inspired by the naturally brightening light of the sunrise, this wake-up light will help mom wake up naturally instead of being jolted out of bed by a loud alarm clock. It includes a snooze function, and with 10 brightness settings she can also use it as a bedside lamp.

The kit comes with everything you need to create a professional-looking manicure at home, and mine go strong for a week or more...even when washing dishes, cleaning, and taking care of all of the kid-related tasks that generally do a number on your nails. I also feel good about using Olive & June polishes on my daughter because they're free of the 7 harmful chemicals commonly found in nail polish.

I recently bought this for myself (couldn't wait for Mother's Day!) and it is awesome. Nicely sized, and so easy to clean.

Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine
Alexandra F.: My Breville Espresso Machine is probably the best gift I have ever received. Sure it's a splurge, but don't we moms deserve a splurge gift every once in a while? Plus, it has more than paid for itself with all the lattes I haven't bought at Starbucks since I got it!
