Summer Must-Haves For Moms


It’s that wonderful time of year where the weather is warm and the kids are out of school. Yet the craziness of parenting never ends so here are some must-haves that might help.

How many times when you are out and about with your little one do you wish for an extra hand? Well, Qliplet is here to do just that. It’s a multi-purpose super clip that you can clip, hook, hang, or hack it onto a door, chair, railing, monkey bar, stroller or seriously anywhere. Hang your bag on it and tah-dah, you now have a free hand (and a clean bag).

It’s time for camp and we all know that means you need to really label your children’s clothes. Luckily Mabel’s Labels has new “Day Camp Labels Pack” featuring UV resistant, waterproof labels and tags to designate items like clothes, footwear, backpacks, sports gear, lunch boxes, and more.

Summer isn’t summer without iced tea and making and serving tea just got so much more efficient with DAVIDsTEA Perfect Pitcher. Just add the tea and hot water, let it steep and then add ice. So simple and the leakproof, BPA-free pitcher lays flat for easy storage. Love.

As much as we know you use sunscreen, sometimes our faces still get a little too much sun exposure. But luckily there is Green Goo’s Skin Repair to the rescue. This hydrating salve is made with organic Aloe Vera and Vitamin E oil so it will nourish and enhance your skin providing a more fresh and youthful look. Can also be used in the morning to minimize wrinkles and reduce puffy eyes (something we moms know all too well).

Just because the kids are on summer break, doesn’t mean you are. I know that sleep doesn’t always come easy, so I am always looking for help. The Active Edge sleep tank shirt has an invisible radio technology that is adhered to the shirt’s fibers and interacts with your body to increase oxygen intake, reduce inflammation and improve REM sleep. Heck, yes!

It’s time to find a new solution for your gym bag and Pack-It Sport is the perfect option to separate your wet dirty clothes from the clean ones. This sporty bag even has a separate compartment for your shoes.

Maggies Magnets are a new fashion accessory that hold several layers of fabric together so you can literally snap sweaters and scarves together however you want. It’s also a great way to keep a dress in place and draped just write. It’s a must-have!

Summer means entertaining so why not use something beautiful like the Chipster Chip and Dip Set. The clean and sleek design is perfect for any occasion and we love that you can remove the metal dish for easy cleaning.

Summer camp means packing lunches and we love products that help us reduce our carbon footprint. Goodbyn reusable containers are a new favorite because they are BPA-and phthalate free, dishwasher safe, and 100% recyclable. They have a variety of containers so you can pick the ones that fit what your kids like to eat.

Sunscreen is such an obvious must-have for the summer and we are loving Neutrogena’s Age Shield. It’s SPF 110 and has anti-aging protection. It goes on smooth and leaves your face soft and non-greasy. We love that it it’s protecting our face from the sun and providing anti-aging benefits. Win-Win.

With Million Dollar Tan, you can look like a bronzed goddess without damaging your skin. They have mousses, moisturizing lotions, and sprays that provide the same results as a professional tan, but can be done from home.

As much as we try to avoid it, puberty happens. And when the time comes, your kid will need effective underarm protection. And for parents looking to avoid aluminum, parabens and artificial fragrances, Tom’s of Maine has a new natural deodorant designed just for kids – Tom’s of Maine Wicked Cool!

If you want to stay cool and comfortable while you are exercising in the heat then you should try a Hytail hat. This hat is sleek and comfy and literally lifts your hair off your neck and through the hole in the back. No velcro or buckles makes this a must-have.
