Shower time is precious, and can be rare, in the day-to-day life of a mama. When everyone else’s needs are top of mind, the pressure is on to get in and get out of that shower, get dressed and go. So where is the space for nurturing self in that blink of an eye? Kate McLeod offers a simple daily ritual that will make mama glow. Their Daily Stone is a body stone lotion bar that melts on contact to intensely nourish skin. Their Dry Brush is an exfoliating body tool that primes the skin to absorb all the body stone’s nourishing ingredients. Any mama will enjoy squeezing this ritual into her bath and body routine. It’s a short and sweet act of self care that lasts the entire day—truly, this body line will make her skin baby soft, like new.

We love a sensory moment that comes with surprise and delight, don’t you? A beautiful scent has the power to light up your senses and shift the mood. Moms are constantly going through change, trying on new things as they go (figuratively and literally). Give mom a sample set of fragrances she can fold into the mix. After all, babies aren’t the only ones who light up with new discoveries every day.
