Must Haves for Mom

Mother's Day Gift Ideas with Babblebox

I still can’t believe that I’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day this year as an actual real-life MOM! While I’m looking forward to spending the day with Patrick and Annie, I can’t forget about my own Mom! We’ll be celebrating the day from afar but I already have a bunch of goodies that I can’t wait to send her way. Now that I’m a mother too, this day is extra special because I totally understand what all goes into motherhood. And oh my goodness … it’s a lot! Moms definitely deserved to be pampered on Mother’s Day!

Speaking of pampering, I had the fun opportunity to receive a Babbleboxx filled with curated gifts for any mom. From the sweetest smelling lotion to a personalized necklace & a gift that is 100% all their own, I’m chatting about four products that will make any mama smile this Mother’s Day.


A Customized Map Necklace from A Jaffe

If you could pick ANYWHERE in the world and wear that spot around your neck, where would you pick? This sterling silver map necklace from A Jaffe shows the location that’s most special to you and marks it with a diamond. A great jewelry gift for mom! I picked where Patrick and I met, The University of Tennessee. You can engrave anything you want to on the back, so I chose lyrics from “Rocky Top” our unofficial school anthem. Fun ideas for you or your mom? The address of your first home, where your special someone proposed or your favorite vacation destination. As you can choose anywhere in the world, the possibilities are endless! Use the code MD41MAP to buy one & get one free until 5/24!

Vichy Mineral 89 Moisturizer 

True story, I didn’t know moisturizer was a “thing” 5 years ago. Now I use it multiple times a day & rotate through a few favorites on the regular! This face moisturizer from French brand Vichy stands out from the crowd because it provides 24 hours of hydration with skin feeling more hydrated, plumped & toned too. It’s the perfect treat for a mom at any age, because who wouldn’t want a refreshing (spa-like) boost of hydration at home?! Use the code Babble to get 20% off all Vichy products until 6/30!

Sabon Butter Hand Cream 

Nothing beats remembering you have a tube of the sweetest-smelling hand lotion in your purse when you’re on the go .. . & desperate! Sabon’s signature butter hand cream is inspired by Spring and is made up of almonds and notes of vanilla for relaxation. All things that are good! It comes in a full size (above) and a travel size that fits just about any clutch.

Last but not least, I can not tell you guys how excited I am about this 23andMe ancestry kit! (I’m basically proof that it makes a great gift!) The kit comes with a little tube so you can send off a vial of your saliva to be tested for a number of different things. (Mine was dispatched this weekend!) From your ancestral origins to where your ancestors lived 500+ years, this kit will break it down for you by region. The history buff in me is THRILLED! Just in time for Mother’s Day, the DNA kit is currently $20 off until 5/14!
