It’s that time of year! The Winter Holidays are over and we’re thinking about Love. Hearts, pinks, reds and of course gifts. While some Moms may be dreaming of a hot night out or roses, crunchy Moms often have a different perspective. As a Mom I have many Loves in my life. Not only do I have hubby, but I also have my babies! While as a single woman I may have adored a dozen red roses, as a crunchy Mom my views have changed. I look at those $70 flowers and feel like they’re wasteful. There are many other gifts I would adore that fit my ‘crunchy’ lifestyle! Here are my Top 10 Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Crunchy Moms like myself!
I love cloth diapers! While they technically are for baby, getting the print I’ve been eyeing or a specia custom from one of my favorite WAHM shops would be amazing! Scoring the new print or even a gift card to Nicki’s Diapers or Diaper Junction would really warm my crunchy heart. Diaper below is Thirsties Straight to the Heart limited edition.
Recently I’ve discovered Mama Pads! Know what’s just as much fun as shopping for Cloth Diapers? Shopping for Mom products! While these may sound like an inexpensive gift, just one pad goes for $10-$12. Beautiful pads from the Pink Lemonade Shop or a GC would be a great, long lasting and memorable gift this VDay.
I spend a LOT of time indoors at home. While I have dabbled in essential oils, what would really be an amazing gift is a nice aromatherapy diffuser and set of oils. Smelling soothing and germ fighting lavender, eucalyptus oil or something sensual would make the indoors that much more wonderful.
I love my babies. However, being a Mom means that am usually babywearing, entertaining the brood while I’m trying to shower or simply doing something for someone else…most of the time. Strap on the Dad cape and watch the babies for a few hours so I can be alone me for awhile and nap, do some needed grooming or simply spend some time on my hobbies. What a great VDay!
6. Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate
Organic Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts… There are so many options out there for natural, responsibly farmed and delicious chocolate! A nice assortment of organic chocolate goods would be a great crunchy gift and come in white, milk and dark chocolate with all sorts of flavors.
7. Baby Carrier
Opening up the Lillebaby or Woven wrap your crunchy Mom has been eying would make this an amazing Valentine’s Day! While our spouses may not be keeping up with the latest releases, a gentle nudge in the right direction could ensure baby is worn in a beautiful carrier this VDay!
8. Natural Pampering Products
Nothing says I love you like a massage with organic and natural products! Lotions, washes, face products and even hair care come in organic, beautifully scented and/or unscented versions. These products are top of the line and made from the best ingredients that will have Mom and her brood happy. Some of my favorites are from Alba Botanica.
I cook multiple times a day. As a crunchy Mom I make most of our meals from scratch to ensure we get the best and organic ingredients. It would be nice to be the recipient of some home cooking and even waited on a bit. Home made brownies you say? Cooking can even involve our littles and how proud they would be to make Mama VDay dinner!
