2021 Holiday Gift Guide


Gifts For Mom Under $50

Birth Stone Stacker Ring – Made by Mary – $34

I love these dainty little rings, perfect for the minimal mama who doesn’t tend to wear heavy jewelry. These can be extra sentimental — birth stones for her little one’s birthday, or anyone special to her!

A friend of mine gifted me the birth stone of the baby we lost due to a miscarriage. That meant the world to me and was the perfect way to honor the little one we never got to meet.

Rainbow Ring – Made by Mary – $42

Another beautiful, minimalistic jewelry piece. Perfect for the mama waiting on her rainbow baby.

Initial Necklace – Made by Mary – $48

Perfect to personalize with the initials of her babies + loved ones.

Mama Bear Tee – Etsy – $24.99

Because she is mama bear and she is darn proud of that.

High Waisted Black Leggings – Aerie – $15

You can literally never have too many, am I right?

16 oz  Travel Coffee Mug – Joco – $26

Yeah, mama needs her coffee on the go too! And she prefers it plastic-free and free from toxins. 🙂

Beautycounter Trio – All the MUST HAVES!- $45

These are 3 of my favorite products — the HOLY GRAIL! For the mama who has been wanting to switch to safer skincare but doesn’t know where to start. The Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum is a transformative treatment that visibly increases skin firmness while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Counter+ All Bright C Serum provides an instant brightening power and glow, and Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel leaves you waking up to softer, smoother feeling skin.

Counter + Charcoal Face Mask – Beautycounter – $49

This is my favorite face mask of all time. I love to use this as a little self-care when my son takes a nap! It includes peppermint oil in the ingredients so not only does it smell amazing and festive, but the cooling sensation feels so soothing to the skin.

Coffee Mug + Warmer – Ember – $99

Because one of these days we would LOVE to enjoy our coffee while it’s still hot!

Counter+ Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm – $72

Another FAVE product that I use daily. This stuff is the perfect all-in-one cleanser that leaves your skin dewy, glowy, and smooth without feeling too heavy.

Mama Sweatshirt – Ford + Wyatt  $64

Ugg Slippers – $100

These will always remain one of my favorite gifts I have ever received. My first pair literally lasted me over 10 years before I was gifted a new pair for my last birthday. They’re so comfy and warm, and durable enough to wear in public if it’s just one of those days.

Barefoot Dreams Robe – $99

Every mama deserves a cozy robe to spend slow Saturday mornings in (sipping her HOT coffee!).

Local to Wilmington

Coffee + Apparel – Casa Blanca Coffee Roasters

One of my faves in the area that I probably go to a little too often. But I can’t help it — it’s DELICIOUS and less than 5 minutes from our home. Check out their house coffee roasts, cute apparel, and coffee accessories!

Sleep Sack – Kyte Baby – $50

These sleep sacks (and pajamas) are made from bamboo I am pretty sure it’s the SOFTEST fabric I have ever felt! These pieces are worth the investment.
