Heymama knows that the juggle is real, but the women behind the brand truly believe that no one should have to navigate it alone. This curated destination is helping modern moms live an inspired, balanced, and well-rounded life via powerful interviews, business advice, and motherhood tips from style to wellness. Mamas can also choose to join the community via a members-only platform offering exclusive access to its directory, inspirational and thoughtful events, vetted business perks and networking with like-minded brands and working moms. From Alli Webb of Drybar to fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, the curated community is hardly lacking in CEOs, founders, and creative women who are passionate about their dreams—both in business and motherhood. Ahead, co-founders Amri Kibbler and Katya Libin share their favorite mother's day gifts so you can buy mom what she really wants.
Supporting mamas in whatever their endeavor may be is at the heart of what our Heymama community is all about. It was born out of a personal desire to bring together and connect modern mothers who also want to live an inspired, well-rounded life (like us!). In the early days, we knew we weren’t the only working moms out there looking to find their mom tribe. Our first attempt to connect with women who felt the same as we did was through an Instagram account, posting a silly photo of ourselves and inviting other mamas to follow along. And follow along they did… in droves.
So when it comes to Mother’s Day, we are the first to celebrate and raise a glass to those that are crushing motherhood, both in business and beyond. Let’s be honest, flowers are amazing, but if this year we’re hoping to steer our significant others in the direction of our curated wish list below, all made and created by fellow moms—how cool is that? For us, knowing we’re getting something that’s not only lust-worthy but also supports the very women we celebrate is definitely something we’ll cherish forever. So take the pledge with us, and “shop mom” this Mother’s Day.
Update your spring wardrobe with the latest crossbody tote from FEED. It’s the perfect style for keeping hands free while chasing the littles on the playground, and the hand beading and Masai print lining are simply adorable. The best part is that each bag sold provides two meals to two children in Kenya for one year.
When it comes to jewelry, Ariel Gordon has perfected simple, delicate pieces that are perfect for layering and telling a story. We’re lusting after the Dual Birthstone ring and love how mamas can pair either their own birthstone with that of their little one or feature birthstones for two babes at once.
Mamas need lots of kisses. She might not have time to make it to the spa, but this little duo set of scrub and balm will make her feel kissable. Our favorite is the midnight blueberry and takes us back to our childhood days of Strawberry Shortcake dolls and a time when we had no cares in the world.
Sleep is the best gift you can give a mama, but even if she's not getting much of it, she'll feel good in this gorgeous 100% washable silk night dress. Lunya has become our go-to when it comes to covetable loungewear and no matter the piece, we simultaneously feel comfortable and beautiful. Buh-bye, ugly sweats.
We're generally all for minimalism, but sometimes you need a little something to perk you up. The intricate details of everything Mignonne Gavigan creates have us captivated, but there is nothing like sporting your very own set of angel wings. We love that they come in multiple sizes and a variety of colorways; if only they could help us fly away…
We decided long ago to toss the toxic polishes for chemical-free, cruelty-free, and vegan (bonus!) products that will keep our nails looking glam without compromising our health. These 10 perfect shades from Ten Over Ten will brighten your day, and your little will probably want to join in the fun as well.
We can’t get enough of millennial pink, and we also can’t get enough of the boho chic model-turned-singer-turned-designer, Anine Bing. Splurge on this delicious bag and mama will feel like a princess that effortlessly transitions from day to night.
Our favorite way to unwind after a hectic day with the littles is with a yoga mat and a dark, quiet room. Add in some gorgeous leggings from Varley and mama will be feeling appreciated and centered all in the same breath.
When you pair entrepreneurial moms with wine and donate the proceeds to charities that benefit both mothers and children, you can count us in. Some of our favorite women were part of this project, including yours truly. Why don’t you invite all of your mama friends over for brunch and celebrate your tribe? It takes a village. Cheers, mamas!
We love makeup that helps to hide our imperfections (and giant bags under our eyes!), and our latest discovery is the Modern Mama Set by Trèstique. The set includes concealer, a highlighter, brow pencil, and eye pencil, and it's contained in a perfect little pack with a mirror so you can toss it in your bag and get ready on the go.
How are you spoiling your mom this weekend?
