Secure bag for working moms

Everyone wants only the best for their loved ones.

This scarf with pockets definitely makes for a practical yet classy purse for all moms out there.

Multifunction wallets for organized and jetsetter moms

For moms who want to keep their wallets organized, the Crabby Gear C3 Canvass Cross Wallet Kanosh is a perfect choice. This thin wallet combines minimalist design and maximum utility. Moms can store up to 10 cards in the three pockets, which include two easy-access ones for favorite or frequently used cards. The wallet’s rubber-lined vertical band firmly holds cash, cards and even mobile phones safely together. A lobster claw keychain secures keys as well.

The Allet Slim Original Wallet is perfect for moms who prefer a rugged yet stylish leather wallet that can fit all their favorite things but is slim enough to tuck in the pocket. It can hold as many as 24 cards. An additional pocket has a divider for placing cash and receipts side by side for easy checking later. This all-in-one wallet can fit bills from different currencies, making it ideal for traveling.

Thoughtful gifts for everyday use

The Artitart Elephant Mug Aqua is a most suitable choice for moms who enjoy a good cup of coffee, tea or chocolate. It features a unique grip-pad design that reduces spillage and prevents the mug from tipping over, ideal for having that warm cup while working or sorting out documents.

The BPA-free mug features double-wall vacuum insulation, which helps retain temperature for up to 6 hours for warm liquid and 12 hours for cold drinks. It can carry up to 400ml of liquid. The silicon tea filter is food-safe and detachable for easier rinsing.

A simple yet very thoughtful gift for a busy mom is the PopBands, soft and stretchy hair ties that do not leave hair dents and kinks when the hair is pulled down.

PopBands now come in Flamingo 5-pieces Multi-Pack, suitable for the fashionista moms who love to tie their hair.

Moms can also wear them as cute bracelets when not in use.

Practical and functional yet trendy and thoughtful. Gifts embodying these concepts will surely convey to our moms our love and appreciation for all their love and concern for us.
