To state it plainly, moms are magic. Our mothers are here for us, day after day, and year after year. Mothers get us to school on time, help us put together outfits, teach us life’s most valuable lessons, and are there for life’s highest highs and lowest lows; never judging, rather, mothers stand by as a solid and familiar support system.
There’s no one-size-fits-all gift for all moms. Though a good pillow always hits the mark, women at different stages of motherhood need something tailored to their life’s specific needs. From expectant mothers to moms of mothers themselves, we’ve rounded up the best of what we have to offer for all the moms out there.
Problem: Late in the game is when pregnancy gets uncomfortable, often even painful. Growing belly bumps need extra support, and moms-to-be should be sleeping on their sides in order to improve circulation.
Solution: The Body Pillow is a supportive, snuggly, ultra comfortable pillow designed to be hugged by side sleepers. Because fill can be added, expectant moms can add even more support to the section that bolsters the baby bump!
Problem: New parents average about 4 hours of sleep a night, and those hours are not slept consecutively. Mom needs to be able to get up and down with ease—making a comfortable pillow essential. Bonus points for a pillow that supports her no matter what position she falls asleep in.
Solution: The Original Pillow. The medium-firm fill will keep her neck and head supported while ensuring a comfortable sleep (even if it is just a half hour).
Moms of Toddlers & Preschoolers
Problem: Juggling work and a developing tot is a special kind of exhausting, but getting those precious hours of sleep back is truly a miracle. Because the daytime hours are probably the most hectic of her life, sleep is probably the most relaxing part of mom’s day.
Solution: The Eden Pillow. Now that kids are starting to sleep through the night, mothers should be pampered with the utmost luxury. The Eden is filled with soft and light gel-infused memory foam, and the gusseted design gives it the feel of a high-end hotel pillow.
Moms of School-Aged Children
PROBLEM: The kids have a packed schedule, and Mom has a full-time job. The childhood years seem to be spent in the car, driving to and from school, soccer practice, piano lessons, sleepovers, and birthday parties.
SOLUTION: The Lumbar Cushion. This bad boy straps to the driver’s seat to relieve all that pressure on Mom’s lower back.
Moms of Adolescents & Teens
Problem: We call these the high-stress years: when kids become their own people, do their own thing, and make their own decisions… which aren’t always the right ones.
Solution: The Silk Pillowcase. The 100% natural silk pillowcase will smooth the hair and prevent sleep lines. Sleeping on silk has also been said to improve the appearance of wrinkles.
Moms of Young Adults
Problem: Menopause causes a ton of bodily changes, and moms often suffer from symptoms like night sweats and hot flashes in silence.
Solution: The Cool Side Pillowcase. This ventilated powerhouse helps with night sweats and temperature regulation, so Mom can both fall asleep and stay asleep during this often fraught phase.
Moms of Adults
PROBLEM: Aging is full of certain, ahem, challenges; not the least of which is bodily aches and pains that just don’t seem to go away.
SOLUTION: The Four Position Support Pillow provides firm support to give Mom’s back and hips some much needed relief.
