Some of our favorite Mother’s Day posts are at the bottom where you can also find a number of recipe suggestions for the special day if you are going with the ‘fill her belly with awesome food’ approach.
Clothes & Accessories:
Sox Box – You see them flaunted in the House of Gainz and that is because they are the perfect lifting socks! They also just launched a compression line, and we hear rave reviews from runners on how perfect these socks are for pounding the pavement.
Reebok – For all the strong mamas who always appreciate a new pair of workout shoes!
OhKuol Jewelry – One look at OhKuol’s site and you will see why Stacy is obsessed with this jewelry line – the pieces are stunning, one of a kind, and all handmade.
Strong Woman Tank – Get the strong woman in your life THE PERFECT workout shirt!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Mascara – A beauty product staple in Stacy’s makeup bag, this gluten-free mascara is one that actually works – many of the Paleo ladies use it! It makes a great gift for anyone trying to avoid toxic ingredients in their beauty routine.
Joy Dravecky Jewelry – Another jewelry favorite of Stacy’s, especially the necklaces – your Mom will be honored to receive one of these gorgeous and unique pieces.
Anthropology, Dessert Star Maxi Dress – Look no further for the perfect dress for summer! When Stacy recently shared her love for this maxi dress on Instagram everyone was asking where they could get it – the dress hits in all the right spots and can be both dressed up or down, i.e. the perfect dress.
Lodge Cast Iron Skillet – Every busy mom needs a do-it-all kitchen ally and our cast iron skillet is perhaps our most used item in the kitchen because of its versatility. Everything from eggs to burgers and veggies taste better when cooked in this beauty! This one is a super good deal right now and comes with an awesome red handle holder.
