bookroo Subscription: This delightful subscription delivers 2-3 age-based books a month that are beautifully gift wrapped to make each book a surprise. Send board books so new parents can start a reading routine with their baby once born, or send picture books for a family’s older child to encourage a love of reading and family time. Either way, they’ll think of you every month when they open their gift of reading. My kids seriously love getting their subscriptions (I alternate the months so each kiddo gets a delivery every other month), and I really enjoy seeing the latest books that are out to read with them. Use code SAVVYBF for 25% off any 3, 6 or 12-month subscription purchases on Nov. 24 -27 or code SAVVYEVERYDAY for 15% off any subscription until 2/1/18.
Ribbon Gifts E-Gift: This is the perfect gift option! If you’re not sure what to get a couple for their new little one, simply purchase a Ribbon Gift Card (or e-gift) for the product category you’d like the new parents to choose from! Prices aren’t listed on the site at all so that parents can pick their favorite gift with their prepaid card without having to think about the price. Once their favorite item is chosen, they simply fill out their shipping address and it’s mailed to them! Parents can choose from everything between diapers and toys, making it an awesome gift option. Email Wendy Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
Meal Delivery: No one has time to go to the store when they’re busy, and they definitely don’t when there’s a new baby around. Order the new family something like Sun Basket or Balance by bistroMD to make mealtime easier (I have a whole review of options, here). Get 20% off + free shipping on your first Balance by bistroMD order of $99 or more with code SAVVYDISCOUNT.
Belly Armor Bundle: How often are you on your phone, computer or another electronic device? How often are you around someone else who’s on their phone? All of these devices emit radiation that can affect your reproductive organs and baby. Belly Armor offers radiation shield products like boxer briefs, baby hats, blankets and pregnancy shirts to ensure families are a little bit safer. Their blanket was a must for me during pregnancy and I love putting the little mouse hat on River now that it’s cooler outside since I’m always on my phone.
Expectful Subscription: After a 14-day free trial, this $10/ month resource offers carefully crafted guided meditation for couples and individuals on fertility, pregnancy, and motherhood. Expectful shares that 10 minutes of meditation a day can reduce stress, balance hormones, increase fertility, and create stronger relationships.
Navigating Postpartum Toolkit: The pregnancy journey doesn’t end at birth! Purchase this online 6-week program as a gift and save 15% off with code MOTHERHOODRISING. During the program, expecting and new parents are navigated through the changes that occur emotionally, physically and mentally during postpartum. Members also get access to a few guided meditations contributed by Expectful and a 24/7 dedicated support group that hosts LIVE expert Q&As. Enrollment closes on Dec. 17 so be sure to sign up while you can!
earth mama organics Bundles: Depending on how far along the mama-to-be is, pick up a Pregnancy Essentials Bundle or a Postpartum Recovery Bundle. Both bundles include all the essentials for a happy, healthy mama at a great price. earth mama organics recently came out with a natural deodorant that I recommend adding to either bundle you purchase, too (it’s free of parabens and aluminum).
