When was the last time you took a minutes to just relax and breathe? As busy Moms we are forever putting the needs of everyone else ahead of ourselves and sometimes, as difficult as it is, we just need to stop and make a few minutes for ourselves. Whether that is to read a magazine, a book, enjoy a hobby or just to sit on the patio in silence, we need it – to recharge.
Oxford Momma is a monthly subscription box aimed at helping busy Moms to remember to take time for themselves! Each month a new box is curated to include a new book geared toward busy moms plus 4-5 pampering products such as candles, bath products, inspirational art and the like. Each box is valued at $50-75. Monthly subscriptions are $39.99 – and they just released a mini version that just includes a book and inspirational art for $19.99 per month.
The team at Oxford Momma reached out to me and gifted me a box for review. Now, first of all – who doesn’t like getting a gift in the mail – especially when it arrives in a pretty box! The May box came with the book, Breathe Mama Breathe, 5-Minute Mindfulness for Busy Moms, the most beautiful scented candle by Moi, Spinster Sisters Orange Blossom Rose Petal Bath Butter, Spinster Sisters lip balm, an inspirational saying card that you could easily frame and a bookmark to mark your place in the book.
My favorite part of this month’s box so far, is this incredibly scented candle, but I do plan on taking at least 5 minutes a day to try out some of the ideas in the book.
As far as subscription boxes go, I would recommend Oxford Momma as a gift for a new Mom or a Mom with younger children. This is the ideal subscription box for Moms who spend plenty of time in the carpool line, on the train commuting or are just in need of more “me” time.
