#SceneMom Gift Guide
What's better than a Mother's Day gift that keeps on giving month after month! Packed Party has customized the most adorable ‘All About You’ Mother’s Day Package containing all the items your mom needs to make it all about her for the day! Think things like a custom silk sleep mask, a custom "For Mother" soap that smells oh-so-good, a split end therapy wrap, a nail therapy wrap, creamy hand-lotion, an all-natural buttermilk face mask, and of course our signature letterpress card stating what the party is, why it is being sent, and THEY sign it with who it's being sent from! Kick up your legs for an at home spa day with mom, where no one can judge you two for drinking a little too much champagne….
We saw Harry & David’s Brunch Gift Basket for mom, and knew this would be the perfect ‘Breakfast in Bed’ gift. Plan a girls sleepover with mom Saturday night and surprise her with this amazing gift basket. This basket comes with fluffy pecan praline pancakes, maple syrup, Harry & David’s signature sticky cinnamon swirl (yummm), and San Francisco sourdough signature English muffins topped with seedless marionberry preserves. A dark chocolate chunk scone, baked to perfection, is a most decadent pastry finale. Select your sipping option with their different coffee options. It’s the perfect way to start a Mother’s Day at your ‘home spa’!
Still not sold on the best gift for your mom? You will be pleasantly overwhelmed with the adorable options at Francesca’s Collections. They have the stores all over South Florida, at the Boca Town Center Mall, Mizner Park, the Coconut Creek Promenade and the Galleria Mall.
You might think it’s funny that a ‘dog mom’ is featured in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide, but dog moms are regular moms too (especially when we want Blake & Sam to recognize it - hint, hint).
Some of you may not know this, but one of the most important parts about being a dog mom is finding appropriate dog accessories. Walk’n Wag With Me provides a fashionable alternative to the everyday leashes and collars Bentley & Duke rock to doggy day care, and while they strut their stuff on the streets of Mizner. They compliment their boyish style while throwing in a little ‘mamas boy’ swag at the same time.

If you’re a true dog mom like Lindsey & Lilly, you’re going to want to listen closely. Cuddle Clones make soft, adorable, customized stuffed-animal versions of your pet. All you have to do is submit at least one picture (although several are preferred) and choose a few customization options (eye color, ear position, tail position) and they send you your very own Cuddle Clone. We can’t tell you how many times we have been away from Bentley & Duke, and wish there was a way to snuggle them. Now you can get the next best thing. The resemblance is uncanny, it’s insane! Their price points are a little on the expensive side, but a portion of each Cuddle Clone purchased goes to a pet-related cause. So you can get a really cool product for yourself or a pet-loving friend and feel warm and fuzzy knowing that your purchase has helped better, and in some cases save, the lives of animals everywhere. It’s a win/win and totally worth it.
We know, you’re probably thinking...”If they are like this with their dogs, what are these crazy girls going to be like when they have actual children?” Don’t worry, we get it all the time, and we will be just as fabulous.
Oh, you thought we were joking earlier when we mentioned Doggy Day Care? Nope, not one bit. If you do know someone that takes their dogs to doggy day care, chances are they have expressed their discomfort with the amount of money they spend on it. Lilly takes Duke to Darbster Dog Daycare where Duke is treated like a modern day celebrity, and frequents long naps. Bentley attends Camp Canine Country Club as the reigning ‘Dog of the Month - December 2013’, and enjoys weekly chamomile tea facials. Both doggy day cares are safe, loving, and come highly recommended by your #SceneGirls. Visit their websites and figure out which daycare fits your special pups!
A delivery service is probably one of the best things you can buy for a new mom. We were introduced to Jessica Lopera and MotherEarth Diaper Service after Modern Boca Mom's MOMpreneur Monday and knew we had to feature this company in our Mother's Day Gift Guide, for new moms in particular. There is nothing a new mom needs more than time and convenience, and MotherEarth Diaper Service offers just that, and so much more. Mother Earth Diaper Service is committed to improving the health of babies, improving the lives of families and assisting in making a significant change in the way we do things.

You're a new mom, how sick are you of the ongoing unsolicited parenting advice coming your way? That being said, there is still an overwhelming amount of product choices for newborns and parents. Bluum allows you to customize your own box with products based around your child's age, gender, and developmental stage.
Perks: You can try before you buy. Like a magazine, it recommends the best products, but they are the actual products you can try at home. It shows what other moms think and how the item worked for them. Bluum allows to give brands feedback about what works and what doesn't.
Trust the experts.
Bluum has a team of expert m.o.m.'s (managers of merchandising) who spend their days trying new products, meeting and getting to know brands. It's their mission to evaluate whether a brand is a good fit to join the lineup of bluum's products. Doing that, the team applies hard criteria to make sure we only send responsibly sourced, free of dangerous chemicals and in most cases organically manufactured products that are healthy for baby and mom. Bluum currently works with more than 350 brands and over 1,000 different products.
Aside from a convenient delivery service, what else does a new mom REALLY need? A day to herself at the spa. Guess what? You can go to Belly Love before, during, and after pregnancy.

There’s nothing an expectant mom needs more than a day at the spa. We obviously dont know what it’s like to pregnant yet, but we can just imagine what it’s like to carry around growing human inside your belly for 9 months.
With our ongoing relationship with Belly Love Spa, we can guarantee the pregnant mom in your life wants a spa day. It’s a little awkward getting something for a mom-to-be, especially if they’re pregnant with their first baby. We can assure you that not only will you surprise her with that “different” gift, it will end up being her favorite. All of the #SceneMoms we work with couldn't agree more, Belly Love is the ONLY place to go for spa services when you’re pregnant.
Whether she’s in need of a pregnancy safe spa day, maternity clothes, or she wants to see her baby for the first time with their 3D/4D Ultrasound technology, she will be so happy to have a gift certificate to Belly Love during her pregnancy.
You’re in luck! They JUST launched their Membership Program last week. The special mom-to-be in your life can receive pampering all day, everyday during her pregnancy...if she wants!
