Metro Parent Trio: Mayama Wellness, ShortyLOVE + Happy Wanderer

This trio of well-conceived products will serve parents from pregnancy all the way through inevitable scraped knees and camping trip mishaps:

Mayama – Pamper Moms-to-Be
The Mayama Wellness Pregnancy Gift Deluxe Package is a fantastic shower gift or simply a way to treat an expecting mom. It includes essentials, comfort items, and additional self-care items to make the pregnancy experience as luxurious as possible, and includes:

Organic crystallized ginger slices, prganic caffeine-free ginger tea, tea tongs, eco-friendly compression stockings, luxury organic body oil, a natural wood body massager, organic cotton therapeutic rice pack, organic cotton sleep mask, matural magnesium bath soak, eco-friendly glass water bottle, and eco-friendly notebook.

Mayama Wellness is a mom-founded small business that’s also eco-friendly, direct-to-consumer, minority-owned, women-founded, Asian-founded, made in the USA, sustainability driven, and clean energy/environmental impact-aware – which is all of the things future babies will appreciate as adults.

You can opt for a Comfort Package ($149) or an Essentials Package ($99) with less items, too.

ShortyLOVE – Practical Style
There’s no dearth of appreciation here at Beauty News NYC for ShortyLOVE’s wide array of bags, which range from fanny packs, cross-body travel bags and computer totes to broader parents-wielding-diapers-and-gear bags and gym bags. ShortyLOVE’s athleisure line of handbags (created by Sloane Gibney Grossberg) was designed to be softer, smarter, and more organized.

The brand offers an expanding collection of 7 silhouettes in 6 colorways for active, busy women who don’t want to sacrifice style for practical solutions. These bags are softer, sleeker, more lightweight, and wearable all day, season after season. They’re also crafted with a plush, water-resistant exterior and with straps that don’t dig, slide, or slip. These durable and wipeable bags are ideal for parents whose children have sticky peanut butter fingers, and can be worn multiple ways, ranging from hands-free to carry. They also have removable and adjustable straps. The best part is that ShortyLOVE bags are organized with pockets galore, genius storage compartments, zippers to hold essentials in check, water bottle pockets, and a padded laptop case in some styles. Interiors are even light to simplify hunting for that elusive item while baby wails.

ShortyLOVE is fully woman-owned and operated – just Sloane and a few trusted contractors.
