The Healthy Balanced Mama 2020 gift guide is here! I asked you guys over on Instagram if you’d be interested in a Holiday 2020 gift guide and the answer was a resounding YES! So it just makes sense we’d start with the mama in your life, right? Whether your mom, your grandma, an Aunt or a fellow mom- these gifts are perfect for the mom who needs some rest and comfort in her life.

ALL of these gift guide posts are packed with items I either use and love, have purchased or have on the list for my own people (my husband even helped me create the men’s list!). Enjoy!

1) The coziest pjs

In this crazy year, we’re not going many places- so we might as well be cozy, right??

2) The best slippers

So, obviously, slippers. These are the BEST, and feel just a little indulgent.

3) Evvie Drake starts over

I loved this sweet romance of a widow and a former baseball player so much I passed it on to my own mom to read– and if your mom is into that sort of thing, I guarantee she’ll love it, too!

4) Eye Cream

This is my ALL-TIME favorite natural eye cream. It smells heavenly and the caffeine from the coffee bean really does de-puff the under eye area. So good.

5) Welcome Home Book

We’re all (mostly) at home, so we might as well make it cozy, right? I loved both of Myquillyn’s previous books, they make the perfect coffee table book with actual practical tips to creating a cozy home.

6) A great cashmere

Every mom deserves a really great cashmere, right? This one is a slightly higher price point than the other items– if you can make it work, nothing beats a great sweater in the cooler months!

7) Tea Collection

On the lower end, but still cozy, for the tea lover in your life- I LOVE Pukka teas and I would LOVE to receive a big collection myself (especially with a pretty mug, alongside!).

8) Dry Farm Wines Gift Subscription

You probably already know my love for a great glass of wine, and Dry Farm Wines stands out with it’s lower sugar, better-for-you (aka headache-free) wines that also benefit the planet. Win-win-win, and a GREAT gift!This link gets you a whole extra bottle for a penny:

9) A beautiful and simple leather tote

I mean, can you go wrong with a beautiful leather tote for that price point?? I don’t think so!

10) A cozy blanket scarf

My mom is a huge fan of blanket scarfs, and I love the idea of cozy-meets-warm-meets-stylish (especially for New England winters!), so I knew I had to include one on the list!Which of these items will you add to your list?? Share with me over on Instagram!
