The holidays are coming, and we moms know what that means. We’ll be logging some serious hours doing prep for activities, meals and presents that will make the season as festive as possible for our families and kids.
But what about us?
As much as we all love doing special things for our family over the holidays, moms need to plan a few treats for themselves. And, in the spirit of giving, the many other women in our lives – our own moms, our friends and sisters – all deserve a little rest and relaxation.
I know, I know, there’s never enough time for that. But what if I told you there’s a place where you can easily shop online for awesome mom-pampering products? And that it ONLY offers items that are healthy, sustainable and totally free of harmful ingredients?
Best Mom Care Gifts from terra20
Allow me to introduce terra20, a fabulous Ottawa-based store that carries only products that are good for you. There are so many products that are locally made or made in Canada – things you can’t find in your typical big box store. I think you’ll consider the shopping experience to be a holiday treat in and of itself!
I recently spent some happy time clicking through their products. Based on what I found, I put together a few ways every mom can – and should – spoil herself for the holidays.
Soak up the suds
I don’t need to tell you how good it feels to settle into a hot bath at the end of the day. Your worries slide right off, slipping down the drain so you can enjoy a few moments of peace and relaxation.
You might think you love bath time now. But just wait until you try it with some of terra20’s dreamy, all-natural salts, soaps and oils. They have lots of organic options, and their bath products come in some of the most marvelous scents: lemon, honeysuckle, even Chai tea!
Lavender is known for its calming and relaxing effects. The scent is floral but also has herbal notes. You’ll love terra20’s Purple Urchin lavender bar and liquid soap set. It would make a great gift – for yourself or another mom you know!
Home sweet home
The holidays are busy, and no doubt you’ll be visiting friends. Why not take a little hostess gift that feels good to give?! Paddywax makes artisan soy wax candles that are hand-poured – for the human touch! – and infused with creative fragrances. Their Bordeaux collection is cleverly packed in an upcycled wine bottle. The Fig & Vetiver blend features fresh herb scents and ripe figs, and burns up to 60 hours. If your friend isn’t a candle type of person, no worries, check out more gifts ideas for the hostess, foodie or chef here.The Best Mom-Pampering Gifts are at terra20!

Master the makeover
For those hoppin’ holiday nights, try terra20’s countless options for beautiful, non-toxic, cruelty-free cosmetics. There are many gluten-free options too. They offer a wide variety of products that are great for all skin types – no matter how sensitive.
I love their selection of eye shadows. They have shades to complement every tone, including this dusky grey colour pressed eye shadow, from Canadian company MarieNatie, made for evening glamour and appropriately called “Nuit”. And the store carries a beautiful array of lipsticks and nail polishes.
Once your face is perfectly made up, you’re going to need something stylish to finish the look. Check out terra20’s collection of wallets and bags. They have a range of stylish, fashion-forward handbags, purses and totes, many made from recycled or reclaimed material.
Whatever style you choose, you can’t go wrong; it’s all good here!
As much as we all love dressing up, it’s always so amazing to cozy up over the holidays. terra20 carries a super selection of slippers, house shoes and robes that are a pleasure to slip into. They’re sustainably made: eco-friendly and built to last.
Take a look at their Green Living Organics Lightweight Natural Spa Robe.
It’s a kimono-style interlock robe that’s soft, but also sleek and sumptuous. So you can feel perfectly comfortable wearing it around your house, and you’ll have nothing to be embarrassed about if any surprise holiday visitors drop in for a visit.
Enjoy your shopping, and, from one mom to another, happy holidays! I wish you all a wonderful season with your families.
Just remember to spoil yourselves and other moms. We deserve it.
