The Motherhood Selects: A Few Of Our Favorite Things

“The Motherhood would like to send you a box filled with some of our favorite things. How does that sound?”

Ummm, yes please!

When that question arrived in my inbox I didn’t hesitate. Of course, who wouldn’t want to receive a box filled with surprise gifts? Arriving just in time for Mother’s Day, when my box of goodies arrived I was so excited to see what the team at The Motherhood had to share with me.

Because everyone in my house loves surprises, I waited to tear into my gift with my family by my side. And everyone found something in the box that they wanted to claim for their own! 


S’well Bottle

As a Florida girl who doesn’t go anywhere without a bottle of cold water, I really appreciated The Motherhood co-founder Emily McKhann’s selection. The S’well bottle is both good looking and has a great purpose. Not only does a S’well bottle keep drinks cold for 24 hours, but S’well is a proud supporter of UNICEF donating $100,000 to help provide clean water to the world’s most vulnerable children. And, of course, each time someone fills up S’well bottle that is one less plastic bottle being used and headed for a landfill. 

Other features I love: the neck is big enough for ice cubes, it fits in a standard cup holder and it doesn’t sweat!

EOS Lip Balm

The Motherhood team apparently shares my family’s love for EOS Lip Balm. We love it so much, I designed a teacher appreciation gift printable staring EOS. The moment I opened the box, my daughter squealed with delight announcing that she doesn’t yet have “strawberry sorbet” in her collection. I managed to hang on to it for pictures, but I am pretty sure the EOS will find its way into her room soon.

Snack time for mom! How did The Motherhood know that I am always on the hunt for a good-for-you snack that tastes great? And LÄRABAR fits the bill. Each bar is made of only nine simple ingredients or less. My only problem with trying new flavors is that committing to an entire box without trying the flavor is daunting. Thanks to The Motherhood, I get to sample more than a dozen new flavors. Score! So far my favorite is the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. (No surprises there!) Now to keep my husband out of my stash! 


Wild Explorers Moccasins

Although I loved everything in the box, the Wild Explorers moccasins are my favorite. Even though they are ironically not even mine. Sissy has worn her bright yellow moccasins every single day since the box arrived. In fact, getting a photo of the soft-soled, leather shoes proved to be difficult since she won’t take them off! These shoes have already been well loved. I only wish I discovered these darling moccasins sooner because Sissy is wearing the largest size they come in.
