    From laundry soap to baby shampoo, a few products we love this month.

  • A friend who recently gave birth to her first child said that motherhood is such a humbling experience. Once her baby was born, her family members and friends came to visit not so much to see her, but so they could spend time with her little one. Come to think of it, it's true!

    Naturally, once a woman becomes a mom, there is a shift in priorities in every aspect of her life. If you know someone who has recently given birth, know that she needs all the support she can get! Make her feel loved and attend to her needs (nope, not beauty products—that will come later). For now, cheer her on in this new chapter in her life, and help ease her into the role with thoughtful gifts, such as these below:
