5 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Women

With the invention of Pinterest, finding stocking stuffers for the women in your life has gotten a whole lot easier. If this list were for me, all 5 would be Starbucks. I would rather have Starbucks than eat food. True story. I digress. Since getting back into the swing things after taking a year off to have the twinkies, I jumped back in & even took on weekly vendors. This has been so much fun for me! I get the cutest swag for my kids and for myself, and then I get to brag about the cute stuff people make! If you need last minute gifts for stocking stuffer, I have you covered. I love love love my Mama swag and I know you’ll love yours too.

1. Mama’s Gonna Snap Workshop. Ok. This isn’t a stocking stuffer, BUT it’s a great idea for your wife, girlfriend, mom, daughter, friends. These workshops are soooo much fun. You learn while having fun. And we give you amazing swag! We are currently enrolling for March & April!

4. Young Living Essential Oils She will thank you when the kids are screaming like banshees & she has these two little bottles to restore quiet.

5. Family photos. If you haven’t read my reasons for having family photos taken every year, READ.IT. It’s important. If YOU set it up, ohmygosh! She will flip. It’s totally worth the time & investment to get this done. And major brownie points if YOU are the one initiating this.

Mama Swag Monday | Pow Wow Prints

 

 

 

After some technical difficulties, MBP is back up & running with a late edition of Mama Swag Monday! This week I get to brag on Pow Wow Prints.

We love love love our t-shirts & I love love love this girl & her shop. Here’s a little bit about this shop:

Pow Wow was launched on a hope and a dream from a lover of pattern, print and palm trees. Fashion mags, flea markets and french fries are a few of my favorite things.  While a self proclaimed explorer, there’s no place I’d rather call home than the city of angels. Inspiration is all around us, and mine comes from the wild heart and dreamer within each of us. Born and bred in the Golden State, each Pow Wow design is handcrafted with heart and soul under sun-kissed skies. Pow Wow’s mission is to bring pint sized prints to tomorrow’s trendsetters.

If you have littles & you like cute tees for your littles, go get some for Christmas! You can follow Pow Wow on Instagram to stay up-to-date on the latest styles!

Happy Tuesday!
