What are your Mom Must-Haves this Christmas season? I know I have a few things on my list, but know I won’t be getting them all at once! Do you ever treat yourself to pricey items, special treats or a piece of luxurious clothing? I would love to hear what some of your favorites are!
Some of the following ideas were submitted to us and I thought I’d share them with you:
1.) Wishpot – To ensure everyone gets the gifts they really want (whether itâ€™s Holiday gifts or baby registry gifts), how about sharing your new wish list/registry site Wishpot? The free of charge service is quite genius as it lets users:
* Create wish lists & registries by adding items found from not just one but from any site on the world wide web. As any smart shopper would agree, why limit yourself to one store when you can have them all?
* Save $$! Users can set price comparisons and sale alerts to keep their wishes within budget (http://www.wishpot.com/help/how-to-price-alerts.aspx)
* Get what they really want! Choose to save or share lists with family and friends – nothing wrong with dropping a helpful hint!
* Consult Wishpotâ€™s shopping and gift experts or even other users for helpful Holiday gift ideas & tips (http://www.wishpot.com/channel/gift/ideas.aspx).
* Consult Wishpotâ€™s baby experts as well as other registered parents-to-be for ideas & tips (http://www.wishpot.com/registry/baby/).
For Technological Moms
2.) iGo Green Laptop Charger – Charge almost any laptop from this power saving iGo travel charger. The iGo includes two cables – one to charge at home, and one that works in the car or on an airplane. Unlike traditional laptop chargers (which can be known as energy vampires) the iGo Greenâ„¢ Technology automatically reduces wasted standby power, so there is no need to unplug the charger. Another nice feature is a USB port on the base unit so you can charge your other devices like a cellphone, digital camera or mp3 player. I found this online, so Bluesuite Mom gets credit for this idea.
3.) A New Laptop is on my personal list! I’d like to have one with lots of memory, a 17″ screen and a webcam. Please let me know if any of you have a favorite brand or recommendation because we’ve only had one laptop and it crashed a month or two ago. 🙁 Boo hoo….We bought it used and it lasted us 2-3 years. It was a Dell Inspirion.
4.) Brulee – Go ahead, indulge. Because every Mom should! Below, select looks for Holiday.

Personal Care Products
7.) Personal Care Products that leave us feeling fresh and special! Mine include Body Shop Soap and a perfume my husband adores, which is has been discontinued, so I am in need of new recommendations as I search for a new fragrance!
A new favorite is goat’s milk soap. We tried some from Laurel Fork Farm and it was truly wonderful. It left our skin feeling soft and silky and their lotion kept our hands that way even after several hand washings! Simply amazing and like no other hand lotion I have used.
These may or may not apply to your individual tastes so please add your own favorites and perhaps they will become ours too!
