The Best Gifts for Busy Moms
When you become a mom, life is permanently changed forever.
Not only are you responsible for keeping another human alive, but you also become much more discerning regarding gifts.
Before becoming a mother, an off-the-shelf gift basket or useless tchotchke seem like perfectly good gifts.
However, once you give birth, you no longer have the time or energy for anything that isn’t useful or practical.
So, what are some really good useful gifts for busy moms?
Glad you asked! I reached out to my mom friends to find out what have been the most useful and practical gifts they have received and I have put them together in this list to help you shop!
Every busy mom needs a watch that also functions as a hands-free personal assistant. Being able to take calls, send and receive text messages, monitor your heart rate, and get directions with a small wearable object is a game-changer.
When you are running around all day it's easy to forget to drink enough water. Even though multiple studies show that it's vital to stay hydrated for our physical and mental health, many moms don't drink enough during the day.

A refreshing, hydrating mist for her to use. Can be used as a pleasant, pick me up for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin.
