Holiday shopping can be stressful; finding the perfect gift for friends and family can be difficult especially if they are more natural minded. Or maybe you’re a tad bit crunchy yourself and want to find a gift that speaks to you while still being perfect for that person. I’ve compiled some of my favorite picks for gifts this year into one handy list.

This e-course presents a relationship oriented approach for parenting the whole child in a gentle respectful way. It emphasizes respect and mindfulness. It’s a wonderful course for any mama to be (or any parent for that matter) and with a variety of packages available, it can be customized to best meet their interests. I’m still in process of completing the course and I’ve learned so much. For more information and price, visit The Mind Body Mama’s website and let them know Mama Hippie sent you.

Natural Mother To Be Body Oil
Nothing pampers a mama to be quite like getting a massage, and this massage oil by Herb Farm is perfect for a growing belly, hips and breasts. Not only is it all natural, but the smell is sweet and relaxing and the massage may help avoid stretchmarks, plus they grow a lot of their own herbs on their own farm.
