God bless Hallmark for giving us our very own day of celebration! This Mother’s Day, prolong that relaxing spa day your husband gets you by putting some of these fabulous pampering mommy-specific products on your wish list. Being a mom is truly the toughest job there is, so go on – indulge!
aden + anais mum + bub collection
Metro ‘mums’ can now experience the amazing effects of pawpaw, the secret Australian ingredient in aden + anais’ new mum + bub™ collection. Harnessing the powers of fermented pawpaw fruit to give both mum and baby’s skin some tender loving care, the ointment, hair & body wash and ultra-gentle lotion will have your skin ready for summer (a.k.a. say goodbye to your stretch marks ladies!). Visit http://www.adenandanais.com.
Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl Face & Body Skincare
We’ve followed her story from the Real Housewives to Bethenny Ever After and now we’re loving every product to come out of the Skinnygirl Empire. Her amazing new Skinnygirl Face & Body skincare line are perfect for all mommies. The Conditioning Belly Butter with cocoa butter and vitamin E, the Cool Your Feet Spray with aloe, peppermint and cucumber and the Energizing Leg Cream with shea butter and cranberry extract would be the perfect Mother (To-Be)’s Day gift!

Babycakes’ Heart-Shape-Waffle Maker
Any mother will feel like the best mom on the planet after whipping up these delightfully fun heart-shaped lollipop waffles on the Babycakes Waffle Maker. In a matter of minutes, 4 delicious waffles emerge ready to be topped with fresh fruit, powdered sugar or maple syrup. It’s no massage, but the love and satisfaction you’ll get seeing the smiles on your kids’ (and hubby’s) faces will make you feel like it’s Mother’s Day all year round! (Includes 50 wooden waffle sticks, a measuring cup for batter, a metal shaker for adding powdered sugar and a manual that includes recipes, hints and suggestions) Visit http://www.thebabycakesshop.com.
Butter may have been the downfall of Paula Deen but for a stay-at-home mom from Colorado Springs, CO who created a “Butter” for her children’s diaper rash, it has been a whirlwind idea that has launched CJ’s BUTTer® internationally. CJ’s BUTTer, made with all natural ingredients, is a “cure all” not just for kids, but for the whole family as well. You’ll use CJ’s for everything from Diaper Rash to Eczema to Hemorrhoids. There’s also a full line of cleaning supplies and body sprays for which you can choose your own scent (you know you’re just dying to find out what “Monkey Farts” smells like)!
