The quest for the perfect present Mother’s Day present is never easy.
Mamas are the backbone of every family. Every day, mamas do so much for every member of their family.
I am a huge believer in showing appreciation for those you are grateful to have in your life. There are actually studies showing that people who are grateful are actually HAPPIER people.
So show the ones you love how much they mean to you, and let them know how meaningful they are in your life.
This Mother’s Day, the one thing I REALLY wanted was something a little different. Many of my friends have tried genetic tests, and I was dying to try one for myself.
But a genetic test may not sound extremely, how do I put it, romantic? That’s where Babbleboxx comes in!
This incredible high-end box comes with FOUR FULL SIZE products, each focusing on a different aspect of things that moms want.
JEWELRY by A Jaffe
The “it piece” right now is location-based jewelry. Create a custom map necklace or pendant and chain in sterling silver, rose gold, gold, and you can even add a diamond accent on any spot in the map!
On the other side of the jewelry you can engrave anything you want, like a name, date, special word or favorite saying.
I chose a Sterling Silver Heart-Shaped necklace with a map of Los Angeles on the front, and my husband and kid’s names on the back. It is incredibly well-made, and I have been getting nonstop compliments on it!
And for Mother’s Day, you can Buy One + Get One Free! Yes that’s right, buy one necklace with a diamond and get one FREE! Up to a $250 value. So you can gift one and get one too, the perfect mommy and me or you gift and you win present.
GENETIC TESTING by 23andme
Again, this may not be the typical Mother’s Day present, but that’s why I love it. Who isn’t curious about their origins and ancestry? The day before I was gifted this box, I was JUST telling my husband how much I wanted to try 23andMe. A good friend had just tried it out, and she was shocked to find out that her ancestors were from a completely different part of Africa than her family thought.
She’s from Trinidad, so often times origins can be a bit murky. But her family celebrated certain cultural traditions that were NOT were her family was ACTUALLY from!
As a mom, I am so curious about my genetic makeup, and how that will influence my children.
Plus, who isn’t curious what percentage Neanderthal they are?! The 23andme test can trace your DNA back 500 years and tell you where your ancestors lived, and you also find out when different ancestries were first introduced into your lineage.
FACE MOISTURIZER by Vichy
New by Vichy, Mineral 89 is an entirely new kind of moisturizer. Combining 15 kinds of minerals and hyaluronic acid to fortify skin, make it more resistant to aging and other environmental factors.
The skin on your face is the first thing that people see when they meet you, and every woman always wants to be pampered. Pamper your mama with this incredible new moisturizer that can also be used as a hydrating serum.
I’ve been using this since my CO2 Fractional Laser last week and it’s been absolutely incredible! The feel of it is amazing, and you feel so good using it.
HAND CREAM by Sabon
Moms do a lot with their hands, from cooking, dishes, wiping little butts, helping with school projects and more. Sabon Hand Butter Cream will soothe, nourish and protect hands.
I like to use it every night before I go to bed, and the smell is AMAZING! A sweet almond fragrance with light hints of vanilla. It has shea butter to soothe inflammation and heal many skin conditions, heal and hydrate skin.
It’s also perfect hydration for after a bath or shower, or to keep in your bag (especially if you are a new mama and constantly washing your hands or using ultra-drying hand sanitizer).
