Print
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
It's not easy being a mom. And when mother's day comes around, it may even be harder to come up with a gift that your mom may like! Here's a round of up some items I've had a chance to review and recommend for moms everywhere and there's bound to be something for everyone!

For the thirsty moms... Serafino Double Wall 16oz Glasses

These glasses are my absolute favorite in my cupboard and have now claimed them as mine for only me to use lol. I love how lightweight these are and they are perfect for both hot and cold drinks! The middle indentation of each glass is right at the perfect spot for a nice comfortable grip and it's only a matter of time before I purchase more to add to my collection! Made of durable, heat resistant, mouth-blown borosilicate glass of the finest quality, the 16 oz Serafino glasses are the largest in the Ozeri Artisan Series of award-winning handcrafted drinkware. Borosilicate glass is stronger than common glass, shatter-resistant, and with the Serafino's double-walled design, it offers the ultimate insulation to maintain drinks at their ideal temperature. The Serafino's unique double wall design suspends drinks within an inner wall for an attention-grabbing optical effect, while the wraparound contour provides a natural aesthetic grip. Each glass is made to keep your hands cool even with your hottest drinks, and free of condensation with your chilled beverages. The patent-pending Serafino is great for coffee, cappuccinos, hot or iced teas, cocktails, frozen beverages and much more. Whether it is an occasion for a glass of wine, coffee, or some other beverage, borosilicate glass is completely resistant to acids, and your Ozeri glasses will never lose their original sheen. Each set contains 2 handmade glasses designed for lifetime use. The Serafino glasses are completely microwave and freezer safe, and ship in an elegantly printed and carefully packaged box with a 1 year warranty.

For the organized and planner moms... Homemaker's Friend Daily Planner
If anyone knows me well, they know I'm a huge planner. I often times have several things going on, events to plan and prepare for, schedules to take note of, and if I didn't take the time to jot things down and organize tasks, schedules and even thoughts, I would probably have a breakdown lol. For those that have a mom (or know of any one that could use some organization tips), this planner is a God send. Filled with inspirational quotes throughout, it not only only gives you a place to schedule your day, week, month or year but also have it nicely laid out with uplifting messages here and there. This planner is simply formatted with a flexible design. I especially like the weekly layout with space for menu planning and a to do list; perforated shopping lists to fill out in the back, task lists and project/event sections and even an information section for short term information. I've been using mine religiously since I've gotten it and I carry it in my purse so I can jot down things as needed!

For the skin sensitive moms... Cheryl Lee MD Sensitive Skin Care

I have been living with eczema since I was young, probably toddler age, and throughout my life I have been exposed to numerous skin treatments. If there's anything to know about living with skin issues, it's that it not only affects a person physically but it affects a personal emotionally and mentally. I'd like to think I've tried more topical skin products geared towards eczema a majority of my life and I'm still open to trying what is currently out there. I was introduced to TrueLipids TrueLipids and after using it regularly for the past 3+ weeks, I'm just now starting to see some improvement in the areas I've applied it on. It will probably take me a few more weeks, if not months to see continued improvement, but of the small amount of time I have been using it, I've been impressed so far. TrueLipis is a patented line of skincare products designed to benefit eczema, itchy skin, dry skin, skin allergies, severely cracked hands, elbows & feet, diaper rash, cracked peeling lips, and minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. The idea behind the technology is to replace the lipids that are deficient in damaged skin to allow for the skin to repair itself. It also forms a barrier stopping the irritants, toxins, and allergens from getting in. Their product line consists of lotion, cream, ointment, hydrocortisone cream, lip balm, and boo boo & bum balm. 


Another one for skin sensitive moms... Adovia Natural Dead Sea Mud Soap
This is a soap that reminded me of my time in Israel, while visiting the Dead Sea. I loved how it made my skin feel after using, as if my pores were tightened and was left clean. It removes dirt and cleanses your skin, while simultaneously infusing it with minerals essential to keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized. The soap contains a unique combination of Dead Sea minerals derived from Dead Sea Mud and has improved my complexion over the past 3+ weeks since using! The All Natural Black Mud Soap contains a unique combination of Dead Sea minerals derived from Dead Sea Mud. This effective mud soap removes dirt and cleanses your skin, while simultaneously infusing it with minerals essential to keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized.  As more people are learning about the healing and beauty effects of black mud from The Dead Sea, this soap is becoming a very popular choice for skin care conscious people.

For vegetable loving & foodie moms... Slice-A-Roo
Spring and summer season means a bounty of seasonal produce on its way! If your mom (or you) are looking for a fun way to prepare fruits and vegetables in a creative and healthy way, you'll appreciate the Slice-A-Roo! Slice-A-Roo is hand-cranked countertop rotary slicer slices, curls, or shreds fruits and vegetables! It is perfect for anyone who is trying to eat healthier. We love making apple chips, potato chips and sweet potato chips using the slice blade. I've also used the curl blade for curly potato fries! I can't wait to see what else I can crank out this summer as more seasonal produce comes in! 

For hair loving moms... Crave Naturals Detangling Brush
I find hair brushing therapeutic when it's done to me and I also enjoy combing Joel's hair after giving him a bath. He isn't quite a fan of my brush since it's big and kind of uncomfortable on him. When I received this brush to try on Joel, he really enjoyed it more. In fact, he probably uses this brush more than I do! It's gentle on the scalp and a great size for his small hands!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
