I received an early Mother’s Day gift when our baby girl, Lydia, arrived last Sunday! It wasn’t the home birth I had planned, but our hospital experience ended up being wonderful and very accommodating. Be on the lookout for some newborn cloth diaper reviews, which I will be posting soon at Cloth is Cool.
And now here are some thought-starters for Mother’s Day gifts, in case you’re looking for something new and different. These are all products I’ve tried and can highly recommend!
The GoCuff was sent to me for review, but now my teenagers use them just as much! If you don’t like toting around flimsy to-go cups then you will love this innovative new sleeve which cradles and insulates your hot or cold beverage and includes a sturdy carry handle. It also eliminates sweat and condensation.
Available in FORTY different prints and colors, you’ll have no problem finding just the right design for a special mother in your life. GoCuffs start at just $10.95 and are available in 3 sizes. Orders before 2 pm ship the same day.
Stack my GoCuff 20% off coupon (use code “zephyr20”) with free shipping over $20!
The Brown Rabbit Studio
My mother, Susan Poitevin, shares her original oil and watercolor creations through the Brown Rabbit Studio Etsy shop. Take a look at her lovely art prints, bookmarks and notecards (and all the 5-star reviews). Say “thank you” to your mother with these one-of-a-kind, affordable pieces of Kansas art!
If you know a mother whose motto is “But first coffee,” then Steeped is definitely something she needs to try. It’s a new way to prepare and enjoy your java. Steeped single serve coffee sachets are a convenient alternative to fixing a whole pot, and less wasteful than plastic k-cup pods. Experience full flavor and rich aromas with just a cup and some hot water. And for new mothers who are still watching their caffeine intake, Steeped does offer a flavorful decaf option.
Preparing a cup of Steeped Coffee is dead easy. Submerge the bag in hot water, dunk for about 15 seconds and the steep to your desired strength level. What new mother wouldn’t appreciate a flavorful cup of coffee with no pots or filters or carafes to fool with? Find your favorite Steeped Coffee variety and get free shipping on all US orders!
You can also pair your Steeped Coffee with one of their heavyweight ceramic diner mugs, each featuring a hand-drawn illustration on one side and the Steeped Logo on reverse.
The home of the famous bumGenius diaper is not just for babies. The Mom section at Cotton Babies offers jewelry, leggings, hoodies and self-care products for pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. And some of them coordinate with your favorite Genius prints, like the Jane Austen hoodie featured below. And there’s a bonus freebie offer! For a limited time, get a FREE diaper cover when you add the Ultimate Cloth Diapering Guide book to your order.
Speaking of shops that go beyond the baby, have you checked Nicki’s lately? Their selection of bath & body products and stylish totes and diaper bags is amazing! One of my favorite new lines is called the Oh Lily Collection, named after Nicki’s daughter. The stylish mom backpacks start at just $32. Nicki’s also carries Petunia Picklebottom, JuJuBe and other popular bag brands.
Get free shipping on orders over $10, plus a free cloth mask with purchase of $50 or more and a free reusable snack bag with orders over $100.
