The holidays are much different when you are a mom and most of your focus goes to your children. Do not get me wrong, even though things probably get a little hectic, I love seeing the look on my son’s face Christmas morning, it’s just so magical and makes it all worth it.
I am sure you also have other family members to buy gifts for, but what about your tribe? The moms who have been there for you since the beginning? The ones you can cry to and vent to. I am also not talking about a friend who lives down the block, this mama can be a friend you met through Instagram or a Mom’s Facebook Group. Growing your mom tribe happens in many ways, and I am here to help you find that perfect (and affordable) gift for your persons.
I have been a part of a few gift swaps over the years on Instagram and they are so much fun! We set a price limit and give a little description about ourselves. Here is a list of gifts you can find for under twenty-five dollars that are perfect for you mama friends!
- For the Moms Who Can’t Party Like They Used To
Does your friend crave the taste of wine but dread the morning hangovers? Would she rather put the kids to bed and relax on the couch with a calming cup of tea than go out to a club? Paravion Tea is the perfect gift with awesome flavors such as Sparkling Rose and Pink Prosecco. The best part is that there is real glitter so the tea will sparkle! Who needs to go out when you have delicious teas that taste like Rose and sparkle?
