Gifts That Make You Better


Tis the season of gift guides! I like gift guides. I do. However, instead of searching out things to include in a gift guide I decided to sit back and let the gifts come to me. All year long I've been keeping careful tracks of the products that I absolutely loved, products that I couldn't stop talking about, products that I had to share with you!

Brain, Child: the magazine for thinking mothers

I first discovered Brain, Child through a group of writer friends. Everyone was listing publications they'd love to write for and this magazine came up over and over again. When I got my first issue, I understood why. 

Let's be honest, some parenting magazines feel more like a sales pitch then reading material. This product will save you time! Your kid will love this toy the best! Be the best mom you can be by buying x, y, and z!

However, you know and I know that parenting isn't about your purchasing power. Parenting is about so much more. The people at Brain, Child know that and issue after issue they prove it by producing well-written article that examine issues affecting parents everywhere in a real and meaningful way. 

Just imagine having a long, thoughtful conversation with your favorite group of mothers. 

It's that good.
