What to get for the mom who has it all


What to get for the mom who has it all

April 11, 2013

Everyone I know seems to be having babies (most of them their second and third babies) right now and I am often stumped for gifts!  You would think as the President of a company that specializes in moms, I would have all the answers, not to mention the fact that I just had a second baby myself.  If people asked what we needed, I generally said ‘nothing at all really; Carter is our second, we have everything we need.’  Actually, the best gifts I got the first few weeks after the arrival of our second baby was food!  It was such a relief to know that supper was taken care of so many nights because our friends and family took the time to drop off a meal.

When Carter was about 3.5 weeks old, I received a totally unexpected package in the mail.  It was a lovely box with my name on it.  I assumed it was something business related, as I hadn’t ordered anything.  To my surprise, it was a gift from my Red Deer Director, Claire.

It was a really cool concept and something that I hadn’t heard of before.  Inside the box was a bunch of really cool products for me AND Carter.  The first box included the following:

The Au Fait Mama Foster Breastfeeding Scarf

It’s Potent Eye Cream by Benefit

Organic Beauty Breast Cream by Novena

Weleda Diaper Cream

Weleda Shampoo & Body Wash

And a little toy for Carter!


Everyone loves presents, but to receive something in the mail (and not a bill!) was such a fun idea.  My biggest surprise was that 2 more boxes were coming!  Mommies First offers 3, 6 or 9 month gifting programs for expectant moms or new moms and each box comes with 4-5 awesome products that are gender specific for items like clothing and shoes.


My second box included:

CleanWell Sanitizing Hand Wipes

Happy Squeeze Baby Food (we will be trying this out in the next few months!)

Munchkin Arm & Hammer Nursery Freshner (I stuck one of these to my cloth diaper pail right away!) and a bath ducky

An adorable pair of PediPed’s that should fit soon

Thera Wise Diaper Ointment

A Zutano Sleeper

My last box should be arriving soon.  I can’t wait for it to arrive to check out all the new goodies!
