Everyone can use a pair of socks with grips. They help you avoid slips as you waddle with a big belly or a tiny baby. And these are perfect for the hospital bag. They say “Inhale” and “Exhale.” Those are the most important words to remember while laboring.

Our February Box was all about the pretties. The lovely products we featured in this month’s box were made by lovely people. We want you to know a little more about them.
Gypsy Soul Organics – Gypsy Woman PerfumeMost perfumes are made from synthetic ingredients. That is no good for you or your baby. However we love perfume because it has a magical way of making you feel a little more confident. You’ve done something extra special for yourself that took all of 3 seconds. We love this scent from Gypsy Soul Organics. They make wonderful scents for men and women, but this one was perfect for February. The scent is a little sweet without smelling “perfume-y” so it won’t upset your sensitive stomach. Amy is the owner and she has such care for moms. She has 2 babies of her own and knows how much care you deserve.
Bee Lucia – Lavender Amethyst Candle February is my birthday month and amethyst is my birthstone, but truthfully I’ve never liked wearing amethyst. However, if you put it in a candle with lavender, I’ll take that all day, any day. This is a calming candle to help you days move more peacefully. Bee Lucia is a mother & son company who wanted to create scents that were safe for you and your home.
Art Naturals – Dead Sea Mud Mask Any time I get together with my sisters we do some kind of pampering thing: paint our nails, use a hair treatment; but our favorite is treating ourselves to a good, at home facial. Turn any free time you have into spa time with this mud mask to deep clean your face, body and hair with 100 percent natural and organic Dead Sea Mud Mask. Natural clays and botanical extracts work together to clear acne, reduce pore size, diminish lines and wrinkles, and fight the signs of aging. It’s good for redness and eczema, too.
If you have a mom in your life whether your wife, your daughter or your own mom, you are probably looking for a way to show her your love this Valentine’s Day. As moms, we would love any of these. There is definitely one for you.
A necklace with her kids’ names – I know this is kind of Mother’s Day-y, but if you’re buying for a new mom, her heart will melt over this thoughtful piece of jewelry by Layered and Long.
Flowers – I know roses are classic and they are beautiful, but let me recommend a bouquet of peonies. You don’t have to add any greenery or filler to them, so if you can’t splurge on this Neiman Marcus arrangement, just buy a short, square vase and scout out peonies at your local florist or grocery florist.
Chocolate – The good stuff. If you’re a novice chocolate buyer, just know the higher the percentage, the less sweet it is because there’s more pure cacao in it. SRSLY chocolate is one of our most favorite Austin companies because good chocolate is one of our most favorite things.
A pretty dress – My mother-in-law frequently gifts me clothes and I feel so special. Of course this one requires you to know the mom’s size and style, but gifting a dress makes her feel pretty and fresh and ready to receive compliments. (Everyone compliments a lovely dress.) If she’s expecting, this is an especially thoughtful gift because she might be less inclined to make many clothing purchases. Dresses featured can be found here, here, and here.
Of course we’re Mama Bird Box. Our favorite way to show a mom or mom-to-be how fabulous she is is to give her the pregnancy subscription box, Mama Bird Box. This month’s box has pampering items galore to help her feel all the love. It’s also a gift that can keep giving each month, so share the love again and again well beyond Valentine’s Day. Check out with the coupon code LOVE to get 15% off any order. Coupon expires at the end of the month.
