Gift giving at the holidays is a great occasion to thank the special lady in your life. As a mom of 3 kids, I’m often coordinating gift ideas for my family and I usually feel like “I don’t need much.” This is because I enjoy taking care of my family and making the holidays feel special and in turn, my family brings me joy. However, if someone was to pick out a gift for a busy mom, something practical, personalized and maybe a bit sparkly is a great way to go. Here are some of my hand picked gift ideas I think many women will enjoy!
One of my go-to fashion accessories are these stretchy belts made from recycled water bottles. Jelt Belts have a stylish and streamlined design that’s sure to become your new favorite belt! They’re made with a length of sturdy elastic, a grippy inner gel and a no-metal buckle that easily slides together. This lightweight stretchy belt is sized for both men and women to create a comfy fit. Traveling with Jelt is a breeze because it’s 100% metal-free & nickel-free and can be worn through airport security detectors. Jelt also inspires social change by providing jobs through the Montana Correctional Enterprise Program. See our Jelt Belt review here »
