5-Gifts to Say Thank You to Your Mom!

Our moms are amazing people. The real-life superwoman in our lives. They have been there during some difficult times, some happy times and have loved us through and through. They do a full-time job in our lives and ask for almost nothing in return.

There is a special connection between a mom and her child, she has a specific ability to know what is needed. To know when she needs to comfort, to reach out with a loving hand, to protect, and to encourage. For our mothers or our mother figures in our lives, reaching out to them and saying thank you is important. You want more than anything to express your love, gratitude and the importance they have had in your life.

Here are 5 ways that Lee’s can help you say thank you!

1-Bath Bombs and Magnesium Lotions from Living the Good Life Naturally

Bath Bombs and lotions are always a good option if your goal is to pamper your mom. However, if you buy a Living the Good Life Naturally bath bomb, you will get magnesium boosted enjoyment. They use only the cleanest and purest magnesium on earth. Magnesium has extensive health benefits, but what you will notice is the refreshed feeling you will have afterward. These bath bombs are also infused with the best cocoa butter, essential oils and more to leave your skin smooth, moisturized and relaxed.

These bath bombs come in many different varieties and flavors:

  • Nature Boy- lemongrass & coconut
  • Beyond the Sea- pink pepper pod, red currant, ginger, patchouli
