It’s that time of year when we’re bombarded with gift guides of all shapes and sizes. Elaborate gift guides to help us buy the most exciting products to hit the scene. This year we wanted to share our favorite “mom style” products so that you can gift yourself with a little love this season. To add to the joy of the holiday season, we wanted to show our gratitude to all our mom followers but not just telling you what our favorite gifts are but giving each gift away in a celebratory way. For nine days we’ll be playing Oprah on our Instagram feed and gifting our gift guide to nine lucky Bloom mamas!
Each gift in our guide has been hand-picked based on innovation, mama support, baby development, mama self-care, and love. Our choices provide support and enjoyment to modern moms in various ways and we’re sure you’ll find each of them surprisingly necessary.
First up, one of my personal favorites the Hypervolt by Hyperice. I’m in a love affair with all of Hyperice’s vibrating facial tools but the Hypervolt has really stepped it up for my postpartum needs.
I found early on that IF I found the time to roll out any muscle tension, Leven would wake up within moments of getting started. Once I received the Hypervolt, everything changed. Now, I can get exactly what I need from the vibration tool in a matter of moments due to its efficiency and speed. This fascia gun is my favorite self-care tool and travels everywhere I do. Feeling sore pre or post workout, or simply wanting to aid in your healing PP, this tool can solve all your fascia issues. It’s like a deep tissue massage with 10 hands 🙂
Next on our list is the Sakura Bloom carrier. If I could sing from the mountain tops how much I love these carriers I would but instead, we’re adding it to our gift guide and giving one of our followers a $100 gift card to purchase your own. Once you’ve experienced your first use, you too can want to sing it’s praises. Besides being the best looking carrier available to moms like us, it’s hands down the most comfortable and functional carrier I’ve ever used. When we first started using the Scout, I was skeptical as to how well it would do on long hikes and if it would remain as comfortable to mine or my husband’s bodies. One strenuous hike was all we needed to have this carrier prove itself yet again. After a 3 hour hike, the carrier was as comfortable as the moment I put it on and the biggest piece of magic is that our little guy sleeps every time we wear him in this design forward carrier.
All nursing mamas need a functional nursing bra and that’s why Ollie Gray Anywhere bra made our holiday guide. This super comfortable bra isn’t just a nursing bra but it has multiple bells and whistles to make any mama get through her day a little easier. Adding to the ease of nursing is the ability to pump hands free with the help of this bra. It also doubles as a sports bra and can be worn to your favorite yoga or Studio Bloom class.
The Anywhere bra comes in an array of colors and will easily make your holiday travels move along with ease.

Every modern mom needs a good diaper bag, one that not only carries all of babies needs but one that also allows for the organization required to find all of the things we stuff in these bags.

Ju Ju-Be even caters bags for dads on the go and with a variety of styles, these diaper bags are guaranteed to keep everyone in the family stylish and organized.
With all the toy’s that exist for our little’s, we feel the overwhelming need to simplify. That’s why our favorite baby toy’s come from Loveevery and we love their play gym so much that it is the only baby gift to make our guide. When it comes to baby’s developmental stages, Loveevery takes the cake in creating the most innovative creations. Their play gym is designed solely to capture your child’s attention and focus it in on the specific developmental needs at that time. The gym even turns into a fort style play gym as your little one grows and requires a little more adventure in their play. I was amazed that even at 2.5 months old, Leven was enamored by the Loveevery play gym and seemed to enjoy it much more than the average play mat we had purchased before he was born. I loved the gym so much that I even subscribed Leven to their toy subscription and yes, you guessed it, your subscription includes a box of toys based on each developmental stage. There has been so much thought put into every aspect of LoveEvery and what they offer our littles. This gift is hands down one of the best baby gifts of 2018.
