The 2017 Mamas & Co. Holiday Gift Guide
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the hype, the lights and the billboards this time of year. But it’s just as easy to support small businesses - and in doing so, you’ll not only be giving thoughtful gifts but you'll also be helping dreams come true for the business owners and their families.
To help you support small businesses this holiday season, we’ve put together our 2nd annual Holiday Gift Guide, featuring gifts for everyone on your list from some of our amazing Mamas & Co. members!
For any new mamas in your life, we love the Tenth Moon Mothercare packages full of nurturing and healthy essentials to help her take care of herself postpartum (shown above). And because accessorizing with a teething infant can be a challenge, treat her to funky and beautiful jewellery from Oz and Ella that is chewable for the little ones too!
Treat yourself or a friend to some lash and brow pampering at the Beauty Babe Lounge in midtown Toronto. And for the beauty enthusiast on your list, check out The Beauty Movement’s go-to 11-piece make-up brush kit with all the essentials.

OLILIBABY mitten clips make great stocking stuffers for kids 6 months to 6 years and will help parent’s keep their sanity by reducing lost mittens - a win-win! And with mittens comes wind-chapped and dry skin - check out the multi-purpose bum and body butter by Charlotte’s Cosmetics.
