5 Gifts Any Mom Will Love

Monday, April 12, 2021
If you're tired of the same old 'mom gifts', I have some fun new ideas for you. Not only that, some of  these gifts come from women owned/created companies,  so you'll be giving a gift with a little extra 'girl power,' too!

Disclosure: I received some of these items in exchange for an honest post, but I would never recommend anything to you if I didn't totally love it myself. Also, this post contains some affiliate links to Amazon.

1. Wine Any Time with maivino

I'm going to let you in on a little secret: if someone gave me maivino as a gift I would be over the moon ecstatic. So if you have a wine-loving mom in your life, I highly recommend this!! Maivino is a female-founded wine company that "breaks the cycle of wine waste and makes it easy to enjoy one delicious glass of wine at a time." What do they mean by wine waste? Well, you know when you open a bottle and don't get to finish it for a few days or weeks? That wine slowly loses its taste and quality over time. But maivino's packaging keeps it fresh for 30 days, plus, it's portable! The bags are like little wine purses, and each one contains the equivalent of two whole bottles!! (Okay, okay, so maivino isn't advertising their wines as "purses," that's just my description of them). But I had a chance to sample their Rose no. 7 and their Sauv Blanc no. 4 and I loved them (there's also a pinot noir that I haven't sampled yet). I can honestly tell you that I would not have thought these wines had been open in my refrigerator for well over a week. I swear on my life that they taste like freshly opened bottles every time I have a glass! Maivino wines are vegan and sustainably farmed, and the unique packaging makes them perfect for outdoor gatherings, picnics, poolside fun and so much more. Plus they look pretty darned sweet inside a gift basket. If you're 21 or older, you can order maivino online for shipping to most states (signature required). And GUESS WHAT? Maivino gave me a promo code to share with you! Stay in touch with maivino on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, or visit their website for more info about their wines and their mission. 

2. Books That Inspire

Most moms could use some inspiration whether it be to reach for their own dreams (after helping everyone else in the family achieve theirs) or simply to find the "yay" in each day. I picked two amazing books that I myself loved reading so I know they will benefit others, too. Your Fully Charged Life by Meaghan B. Murphy is like a guide to positivity. Each chapter offers stories and advice on how to find joy in each day and live life to its fullest- and if you follow Meaghan on social media (she is a long time magazine editor and all around cool person), you will see that she actually practices what she preaches. Another awesome book for self-motivation is Believe It by Jamie Kern Lima. Jamie is the CEO and founder of IT Cosmetics, and when you read about her amazing story and climb to the top after multiple setbacks, you'll truly believe that anything is possible. Jamie is inspirational and a wonderful role model for women everywhere (and IT Cosmetics totally rock, just sayin'). Want to win a copy of Meaghan's book? The first person to email me with the subject heading I WANT TO WIN gets it! *Must be a U.S. resident, 18 and over, no P.O. boxes, please! Must also be willing to provide a valid U.S mailing address. 

3. Chocolate Without Guilt

My fabulous friend Melinda, a Health and Wellness Coach (find her at BelievablyKeto on insta)  introduced me to ChocZero, which contains no sugar and no dairy.  As far as chocolate goes, nothing tastes exactly like the real thing, but this comes pretty darned close, and sure does cure a sugar craving mid-afternoon! I also love their syrups (even strawberry is delicious- a bit thicker than regular syrup, but the flavor is yummy). You can order peanut butter cups, squares, chips, and even special ChocZero shapes for holidays (but they sell out fast). These are a great choice for moms working on special diets (they are keto friendly) or just looking to cut back on sugar without sacrificing flavor). You can read more about ChocZero in my special Keto Foods post, too.  By the way, new customers can get 15% off their first online order at ChocZero.com with coupon code LOVEATFIRSTBITE

4. Drink with Style

I kid you not that I bought a Brumate Champagne Flute for every member of my household (including my 12 year old). Not only do they hold carbonation well, but they keep drinks cold for DAYS! DAYS, I tell you! I once left mine filled with Polar lemon seltzer for three days and I was stunned to find that it was still cold when I tested it. Three days!! Anyway, they come in so many different colors and styles (pictured below is Glitter Mermaid). They have a flip lid (which I prefer because I don't like the ones with sip holes), but you can also purchase a replacement lid with a straw hole. Featured in the pic is the champagne flute, but the Hopsulator Slim (great for hard seltzers) and the Uncork'd wine tumbler are also great gift ideas!

5.  Personalize Your Pet Portrait

Any mom who is a pet lover will adore these personalized pet art prints from West & Willow.  All you have to do is upload a photo of your dog and their digital artists will do the rest! You can pick from different colored backgrounds, sizes and frames (you can also order a print without a frame). You can also order an art print with up to three dogs in one picture (it goes up in cost a little with each dog you add, though). We were blown away by how perfectly West & Willow captured our dog Spot's expression. He's not an easy dog to replicate in art, with his crazy hair and dark eyes, so we fell in love with their work. West & Willow also does cat portraits (and horses, too!).
