Anna Macsalka's Family Gift Guide

Anna's Family Gift Guide

It's that amazing time of year to start thinking of others. And while I will always error on the side of spending our resources on those who are less fortunate, it can be fulfilling to make our loved ones feel appreciated.  

  • For the mama: Organic Lavender Eye Pillow, Uncommon Goods, $32
    • I love the simple pleasure of lying down with the slight pressure of an eye pillow to ease tension in my body.  The smell of the lavender is an extra bonus.   
  • For the baby: Sleep tent for home or travel, Slumberpod, $174.99
    • Obviously, I'm a huge advocate for teaching our little ones good sleep hygiene out of the gate.  With Slumberpod, you can create the perfect sleep environment for your baby at home or on the go.
