“If the products weren’t so great, I might simply buy them for the lovely gift box they come in. I’m referring to The Spoiled Mama’s pregnancy and postpartum products, which are utterly charming, practical, delicious, and - best of all - organic (and vegan too). It’s hard not to love a company whose product treats you like royalty, and who is committed to the environment via recycled and recyclable packaging material, all natural ingredients, and wind-powered servers.

The Spoiled Mama offers a range of products for the whole family, and for anyone who has a penchant for rubs, lotions, oils, teas, baths, and other beautifying products, the product line is sure to please. With classic oils and butters for feet and round bellies (and their stretch marks), the line has lots of creative options to choose from for women with anxiety, aching feet, stretch marks, and scary skin. Also, for many pregnant women, strong smells are a danger zone, but these products are subtle and safe for mama and baby.

In addition to products focusing on belly love, I absolutely love the charming names of each product; for example Fix that Sucker Nipstick and the Breast Little Gift Box Ever for nursing moms, and Sitzing Pretty soak for moms very newly postpartum. This collection obviously was created by a woman (a registered nurse, in fact) and made for women.

One of the unique traits of this collection is that it includes items for baby and for daddy, too. From Sweet Cheeks Finishing Creme for baby to Unnecessary Roughness lotion for dad, the line brings consistent whimsy and care to all members of your growing family.

Finally, I love that there are plenty of lovely and affordable gift options in their Under $20 line. The Best of Bump Box I received was only two nights away from being gifted to my pregnant best friend. But once I opened the creams and oils, it was clear that I would be keeping this goodness all to myself. And as for my friend, I know she’ll love the box I’m sending her just as much as I love mine!”
