2019 Mother’s Day Gift Guide


It is that time of year again. Time to honor the wonderful mothers in our lives. We have searched high and low to find the perfect gifts for mom this year.

Military Moms Blog is thrilled to bring you the 2019 Mother’s Day Gift Guide.


End the pick up game … stop the toddler toss!  The Busy Baby™ placemat adheres to any smooth, flat surface and has a proprietary tether system to attach the baby’s items to the mat. Now, when the baby drops or throws things, they stay within baby’s reach.

It is dishwasher safe and neatly rolls up to store in most diaper bags and purses. Potentially the most genius use of the mat is on a shopping cart handle. It can also be used on most high chairs, a sliding glass door, the side of a refrigerator, or bathtub. Wherever it is used, toys or pacifiers will stay attached and germ-free. Washable markers can be attached for coloring and it will rinse right off.  Busy Baby™ was founded by Beth Fynbo, working mom and 10-year U.S. Army veteran. 


Founded in 2010 by a military spouse and named after her daughters, Charliemadison Originals is more than just jewelry.
