The New / Expecting Mama Gift Guide

 

No surprise- as I sit here with a sleeping 4 month old on my chest, new mamas have a special place in my heart this year! I feel like it’s hard to get these ladies to even think about what they want for themselves, and if they do- a lot of times people are too busy spoiling the baby to notice! So with that in mind, here’s some great companies that are making beautiful things that will bless the new or expecting mama in your life- and a few bonus gifts for baby, too 🙂

Write the Word Journal

I use this every day! I discovered this product early in motherhood and I am so grateful that I did. Each day has a short passage of scripture to write out in your journal and then a space to write your thoughts. It’s just enough guidance to not feel overwhelming, but enough freedom to let each day be what it needs to be. I usually take about 10 minutes or less- very doable during naptime! I love their new themed selection, too.

Carefull Candles

Currently burning as I write! My friend Caroline makes these candles, and they are nontoxic, too! Typically, candles are full of terrible chemicals that can legit make you (and baby) sick, but these not only smell incredible but are totally safe. Our favorite: Balsam and Cedar. We are addicted.

Harry’s Razors

I’m a new convert to Harry’s and I’m never going back! It’s a disposable razor head with a reusable handle. Super affordable, super high quality. If you’re only gonna get to shave your legs once every 2 weeks, might as well do it right, yes?

RTIC cup

Like Yeti but for people on a budget. I live in Africa and my RTIC cup goes with me everywhere, and legit keeps my water cold even if it’s left in my car baking in the African sun! New mamas need to drink lots of water, and this definitely makes it more enjoyable. Bonus: get a pack of fun straws to go with it!

Lularoe Leggings

If you don’t know, now you know. LuLaRoe makes incredibly comfortable and flattering clothes for women in any stage of life. Their leggings are to die for! If you don’t already know a retailer, comment below and I’ll hook you up: I think I know like 30, ha!

Wildbird Sling

I LOVE my Wildbird sling. I’ve tried a TON of different baby carrier options, and the Wildbird is the perfect mix of stylish and functional! They are exceptionally well made and come in a huge variety of trendy but versatile color options. We love our Mallard!

Lipsense Intro Kit

Self care goes right out the window for new mamas. But a little lipstick can work some magic, I tell you! Lipsense has revolutionized my makeup routine: it stays COMPLETELY put for up to 18 hours (and I’ve pushed it further) and it has really healed my lips, too! My sweet SIL sells it, and you can join her FB group here to find out more!

DoTERRA Family Essentials Kit

If you’ve read this blog for even a second, you know that I love essential oils! I was gifted a Family Essentials Kit when I was pregnant with my daughter and I haven’t looked back. It’s changed the way we handle our wellness in our family! If you’d like more information, please email me at karli.vonherbulis@gmail.com! {BONUS: get $50 in free oils in May!}

Dwell + Slumber Gown

I don’t actually own one of these but I’m crushing SO hard on them. Anyone wanna get one for Me? Ha! They are pregnancy dresses and pushing gowns and nursing dresses and nightgowns all in one and they are so beautiful.

Fraiche Interiors

Morgan is the sweetest maker in all the land and she makes incredibly beautiful textiles for babies! Swaddles, hats, nursery sets, boppy covers, you name it- and soooo many different fabrics, it’s hard to pick a favorite. She helped me find the perfect sheep print for when Shepherd was born, and he still sleeps on his organic swaddle every night 🙂

Cuddle and Kind

My new kids stuffed animal obsession, My best friend gifted our kids each a deer form Christmas, and they are obsessed. Halle sleeps with hers each night, and we use Shep’s as a size comparison in his monthly photos! Bonus: each purchase donates 10 meals to hungry children. And could they get any cuter?
