Christmas Countdown – Day 19

It’s a feeling all parents know too well: whether you are a soon-to-be, new or seasoned mother, getting a gift for your little one(s) is often more fun than getting something for yourself. We totally understand how easy it is for mum to be forgotten, so we have made sure our Christmas Countdown has the whole family covered. In fact, this sweet prize pack from Milk and Love spoils both mother and child in one go:

Lovingly put together by Milk & Love owner Corryn the Mother-to-Be Eco Gift Box (RRP $59.95) contains three fabulous products any eco-conscious mama will adore:

Made right here in Australia with nourishing goat’s milk this luxurious Billie Baby Goats Milk Moisturiser (100ml) will keep your family’s skin soft and nourished the natural way. The gentle, caring formula is ideal for people suffering from eczema and other sensitive skin conditions as it is completely free from colour and fragrances that often cause irritation, you can even use it on the delicate facial area.

Containing the same delicious Aussie goat’s milk, as well as a number of carefully selected skin loving ingredients, Billie Baby Goats Milk Baby Body Wash (240ml) is the perfect addition to your daily bath or shower routine. This gentle cleanser is free from questionable nasties like parabens, SLS, propylene glycol, DEA and petrochemicals, so you can safely use it on your precious newborn (and the rest of the family). One little pump is all you need, so this bottle goes a very long way.

Measuring a very generous 120 x 120cm in size the beautiful Little Bean Organics Baby Wrap will surround your precious bundle with layers of super soft and snuggly organic cotton that is free from pesticides and other toxic ingredients. You can use this versatile wrap as a swaddle, a light blanket in the cot or pram, a play mat or even a nursing cover when out and about. The gender neutral leaf print is perfect for both boys and girls and of course surprises, what a wonderful babyshower gift idea.

As the cherry on top (and to make your life a little easier) one of Milk & Love’s Celebrating Motherhood Gift Cards and complimentary gift wrapping are included, ensuring the Mother-to-Be Eco Gift Box is ready to be gifted to a special mama in your life.

After almost 10 years together my wonderful hubby knows very well how to make me feel special, as opposed to ‘materialistic’ gifts he prefers to shower me in ‘experiences’ which is so much fun every single time. On Saturday I celebrated my 32nd birthday (I can’t say I feel 32 at all!), it was a very cold and wet day and I woke up with a terrible cold which wasn’t really in line with hubby’s big surprise plan. He had booked me in for a relaxing pregnancy message at Endota Spa in the beautiful Adelaide Hills (yep, he is a true gem!), followed by a Dutch-style picnic lunch with the family. Oh well, you have to work with what you’ve got so I had my massage with a box of tissues within reach and afterwards we picnicked under a shelter, all warm and cosy in our winter coats. Another birthday to remember, celebrated with the special people in my life.

Cowl Neck Dolman Maternity & Breastfeeding Top (RRP $79.95) by Milk and Love
This comfortable Mothers En Vogue slouchy knit is getting a great work-out this winter. Originally I purchased this top when breastfeeding baby no.4 (and had already lost the baby weight) so it’s probably at tad too snug for this far into my pregnancy but it’s so easy to wear I can’t resist it. The asymmetrical design consists of a loose, over-the-shoulder knit and a nursing singlet in a matching colour to allow for discrete breastfeeding once baby is born. Made from a soft and stretchy bamboo/cotton blend it is lovely gentle against the skin. This season this style is available in three new shades so I may have to order a new one for when baby has arrived, I am leaning towards the pretty deep blue colour.

Jessa Denim Jean (RRP $129.95) by Ripe Maternity
These casual stonewashed jeans were the first maternity pants I purchased for this pregnancy, way back in the first trimester when I couldn’t do up my regular jeans anymore but didn’t want to give our secret away yet either. They are very supportive, stretchy in the right places, thick and warm and I absolutely love the over tummy knit waistband.
