Can you believe it’s already the end of November? If you’re still scrambling for gift ideas for either your mom, sister, best friend (or even yourself — because Mama deserves a little pampering every once in a while too), we’ve got an exciting Holiday Giveaway just for HER!
I’ve teamed up with four other bloggers: Lisa from Fab Frugal Mama, Maya from Mayahood Blog, Amanda from Multi-Testing Mommy, and Meri from Lil-Sugar, to provide you our top picks for the holidays. These are some of our favourite brands and products that we’ve each tried and loved and would refer to any of our friends.
Want to know something even better? One lucky winner will win ALL of the products that we’re posting about (total AVR is $640). These are all items we know would be great for busy moms out there. Whether it be to fancy up an outfit, kick your feet up, or just feel spoiled for an afternoon, these items will make you smile. You can even gift some or all of these amazing items to your loved ones! T’is the Season of Giving, right?!
I’m really excited about sharing the Anchored Jewelry love with my readers. I’m a big fan of supporting local businesses and promoting Manitoulin Island. I’m also a big fan of Anchored Jewelry because each piece is hand-crafted and hand-stamped.
Dress up your holiday outfit with a handmade, hand-stamped statement piece from Anchored! The earrings are also a conversation piece! Made on Manitoulin Island. Truly unique and beautiful.
Another local favourite is Jackie’s Art Quilts. Jackie is a true artist and breathes character and life into each piece she creates. I love her quilts! Just in time for the holidays, these beautiful, festive Christmas stockings that are perfect for decorating your home during the holidays or including in your stocking stuffer traditions!
I’ve been a fan of Tea Leaf Co.’s since I first discovered them on Twitter before their launch! When they had their official launch and I was able to try their teas, I was even a bigger fan. My favourite is Spirit and my seven-year-old loves Rock Star. We enjoy having a mother-daughter tea together. So good!
Give the gift of a bundle of warm, perfectly spiced chai teas! Let Mom enjoy a cuppa delightful tea & put her feet up for a while!
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know just how much I love TOMS. Most of us are familiar with TOMS shoes and that for every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS will donate a pair to children in need. For every bag you purchase, TOMS will help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need.
As moms, we definitely know how fortunate we are to have given birth in Canada surrounded by the best facilities, health care professionals and hospitals. I am reminded that if I had given birth to Little One anywhere other than Canada, she likely would not be here with us today. With Little One being born so prematurely, if we lived elsewhere, either we wouldn’t have had access to the expert medical care like we received at Mount Sinai Hospital or we wouldn’t have been able to afford the costs it would have required to keep her alive.
Through TOMS newest initiative, funds will be used to help provide safe births in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Haiti and India. This work will be done by a network of TOMS Giving Partners involved in maternal and child health programs, who will help provide training for skilled birth attendants, along with providing a safe birth kit that includes vital materials like soap, gloves, gauze, a cord clamp, surgical blade and a clean surface to help a woman safely give birth.
My friend, Maya uses her TOMS weekender bag as a diaper bag (aka purse and everything else). It’s the perfect size to hold my wallet, diapers, wipes, tissue box, snacks and more. TOMS bags make a great gift for any person on your list as it’s both a tangible gift and also a way to give back.
Remember, when you purchase a TOMS bag, or any other TOMS products, you’re making a real difference to someone’s life.
I’m really obsessed with scarves and these are beautiful! You can wear these scarves in the winter or when you’re sitting on the beach. There are many different styles to choose from including the Paia scarf. The Paia Scarf is perfect for the bohemian in all of us that just wants to roam barefoot and bike between beach and home. She’s laid back, free and full of life and laughter.
