There are many ways to show your support to a friend or a family member who is about to embark on the journey of motherhood.
From baby showers to birthday milestones or just the fun of celebrating a great family you know, it’s always appreciated when we receive a special something from a friend, partner or family member. Many of you already know that pregnancy and being a mum can be a physical and emotional roller coaster. One day you are feeling at your best, radiant as a goddess, and, the next day, you feel tired and not exactly in the running for the #bestmumoftheuniverse award.
If you’re invited to one of these celebrations that often follow the wonderful news and are tired of offering the same baby onesies. If you want to get pampered or support your beloved friend with an original present that can help an expecting mama and her family, Beauty and Well Being has found a modern subscription both you and your friends will love.
From the comfort of her own home, she will receive a box full of well-prepared and thoughtful goodies to feel great and help raise her family.
Subscription boxes have been booming for the past few years, offering an array of choices from DIY kits and cooking boxes to stylish clothes and make up. Well, mummy’s world hasn’t escaped from this trend.
Here are our favorite subscriptions for the whole family:
