Five Days of Giveaways: The Mom Pack (Day 1 of 5)
I love fun socks! Since we’ve all been around the house an EXTRA amount of time these past 20 months, there’s a lot of sock-wearing going on. And, it’s fun to throw a little messaging on there. I chose “Bring Me Some Tea” socks from Lavley since my daughter and I both love to drink kettles of tea a day, and we can share. The winner of this package gets to choose three different pairs to be shipped including dozens of themes. lavley.com
Speaking of tea, we’ve tried lots. Here’s one of my new favorites of the season. They’re packaged to be a bag for each pot, which is perfect. Tea Runners Subscription Box ($25) a month delivers four top-quality, loose leaf teas, along with tasting notes and brewing instructions. The packaging is the best because you can reuse the tea bags for snack keepers for kids. tearunners.com
We LOVE tea! Can you tell? Winter Warmth Tea Flight from Chariteas ($36) was a family favorite! The canisters can be reused as well and the blends are wonderful. It’s fun to put the trio out on a cold winter morning before the kids go to school. It’s certainly an extra needed perk living at 7,000 feet above sea level on dark mornings. The flight includes Fireside Orange, a black tea blend, Christmas Morning, a smooth rooibos blend and Minty Meadow, a Chinese green tea blended with peppermint and spearmint. PS. Check out the website, the company is based in Mt. Hood, Oregon, which gives us amazingly different mountain products.
Let’s create some calm. Actually, we got a trio of these boards and everyone had fun unwinding and doodling. From daily responsibilities to the unending access to stimulation technology brings us, it’s common to feel overwhelmed. Reset your mental state from overstimulated to calm and peaceful with the help of Buddha Board, a mindfulness tool that helps you practice the art of letting go. What makes this product different? Each work of art lasts for only a short while, allowing you to create again and again. Perfect for relieving stress at home, in the office, or when traveling. Winner can choose between three of the boards (Original Buddha Board $37.95, Mini Buddha Board $17.95, Enso $27.95) buddhaboard.com
No more worries about paper towel shortages, this is a Swedish leader in what we call dishcloths here in the U.S with their reusable, compostable cloths. The lifespan of a reusable, biodegradable cloth is nine months and then toss it in the compost. And it only costs $6 each! Globally, paper towels waste accounts for as much as 254 million tons of trash. We can solve this wasteful trend by making a simple switch in our lifestyles. The sponge cloths have a highly-absorbent texture, similar to combining a sponge and cloth, absorbing 15 times their weight in water. We chose the cat-shaped package, of course, and it will last us a year! ecologieliving.com
We can’t deny we might be washing our hands, sanitizing, and doing an extra-harsh job trying to get rid of germs. It helps when there are at least cool accessories to make the job a bit more enjoyable. This set from Simple Satch, called On-the-Go, is PERFECT for traveling mamas. There’s a reusable pouch, awesome keychain, holder for sanitizer, charging cord and so much more. As a traveler, this was one of the first items that I put to use this fall. simplesatch.com
