Autism Mom Gift Guide Quiz:
Leather Earrings: There is no better way to feel fancy than with a little jewelry. Lightweight and handmade – these earrings are perfect for work, a night out, or just a Tuesday afternoon. Explore the latest offerings from Creatively Cailin here.
A Mani/Pedi: A fresh manicure – and pedicure – in under ten minutes is the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your life. A new glitter or design manicure made easy, these nail polish strips are the perfect gift for anyone who wants to feel fancy.
Tommy John: Famous for (men’s) underwear, Tommy John is making a push to be known for comfortable underwear, active wear, and loungewear for both men and women. Don’t feel comfortable with intimates on the list? Consider cozy pajamas, comfy graphic tees, or a gift card – so she can pick out her own Second Skin Bikini.
Coffee: There is nothing like a steaming mug of coffee to stave off the winter chills. And if the coffee happens to be Kona coffee, it is not only among the best in the world, it can help you feel transported to the islands, if only for a few minutes. A staycation in a cup. Try the Estate Medium Roast from the Hawaii Coffee Company here.
Causebox: A subscription to a Causebox makes you feel good. You know that this quarterly subscription box was intentionally filled with products that benefit under-resourced humans and/or the planet we inhabit. Annual members get to select options, but all subscribers receive a beautiful box with interesting, practical items. A gift that keeps on giving.
Ritual: A gift that you can use literally every day to help restore your inner balance. I was taking fistfuls of vitamins and supplements – when I remembered – which wasn’t very often. Popping these two easy-to-swallow capsules (with a little aromatherapy hit from the mint insert in the bottle) has been relatively easy to remember. A word to the wise, however: the package is NOT childproof, so don’t store on the counter, as the company suggests, if you have any concerns about children or adults accidentally taking them for you.
Rothy’s: Comfortable, washable and fun – perfect for women on the go. A few years ago, my doctor ordered me to stop wearing heels. Between decades of ballet, followed decades of wedges and pumps, my hip joints were done. But for someone who loves a good pair of shoes, purging two-thirds of my closet was akin to a period of mourning. Enter Rothy’s, which have helped me enjoy shoes again, even if I still have to pass up heels. Made of recycled plastic bottles, the shoes are Earth-conscious, comfortable right out of the box, and continually offered in new colors and patterns.
A FabFitFun Box: For the woman who loves a good surprise, a FabFitFun Box is perfect. I’m a #FabFitFunAffiliate and annual member – and you can save $10 with the code RAINBOW. Annual members can make more choices than quarterly subscribers, but everyone gets at least a few surprise items in each box. Each box includes a wide variety of items, ranging from beauty and skincare to fitness and food.
Bonus: every single one of the options in this autism mom gift guide can be purchased from the comfort of your own home, or, er, phone.
