Mother's Day Gift Guide for Mom and Baby

mother's day gift guide

This year will be a very special Mother's Day because I will be celebrating my very first Mother's Day as a mom! It has been such an incredible 5 month journey so far watching my little one learn to lift his head up, discover his hands, roll over, smile and laugh and very importantly sometimes sleep through the night! I have partnered up with Dermstore to bring a selection of skincare gift ideas for mom and baby!

Two beautiful and luxurious gift ideas I've picked for mom are the Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream and the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. I had glowing blemish free skin during the second and third trimester during my pregnancy. I was amazed because I've dealt with adult acne for the longest time. I would say now my skin is actually much better than before. It's a lot less acne prone but since my skin is less oily, it's been a lot more dry. I remember the morning after I gave birth, I trudged my way to the bathroom mirror in the hospital and was seriously astounded by how dark all my freckles, hyperpigmentation and dark spots looked on my face. My nose was completely covered in freckles! Dark freckles! They have definitely faded now back to normal but I still have the same hyperpigmentation and a few dark spots I would love to work on.

The Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream is a luxurious intensive moisturizer that helps with reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots. I think it's such a nice gift idea for new moms and all moms because as we age we all have dark spot concerns and not only does this target those concerns but it's also very hydrating and plumping. The texture is nice and light and leaves your skin glowing. I absolutely love the packaging and it's just such a beautiful gift idea.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

We all know moms need more sleep. The This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is a cute gift idea for all the sleep deprived moms of the world. I think it's nice to establish a bedtime routine and a few spritz of this lovely lavender, vetivert and wild chamomile oil infused spray can help calm the mind and ease you into sleep. It can help you feel more well rested and for all the non-moms out there it can help you sleep longer :)

Jurlique baby

Most baby products are targeted for babies, so when I saw Jurlique had a line of products for babies I really wanted to share that with you guys. They are such a cute gift idea for moms. Living in California I really notice how dry the air gets and after my little guy takes a bath, his cheeks and legs always get dry. The Jurlique Baby's Soothing Moisturizing Cream is gentle enough to use from head to toe and is fortified with Vitamin E, Lactic Acid, Aloe Vera, Shea Butter. It has a calming lavendar scent and is definitely a treat for baby to wear. 

I love the little bottle for the Jurlique Baby's Gentle Shampoo and Body Wash. The product details state that soap bark tree extract acts as a natural surfactant that doesn't cause irritation while chamomile and vegetable glycerin provide soothing moisture. Lavender essential oil calms the senses and balances pH levels. Again I just think these are super great gift ideas that moms will really enjoy using!

Here's my guy all wrapped up right after a bath time and another picture of him having a little heart to heart talk with his older dog brother Riley :) I hope you all have a wonderful and special Mother's Day this year!
