The Labor Day break is always bittersweet. On one hand, it’s a loooong freakin’ weekend perfect for getting together with friends and family! On the other, it’s a reminder that the sweet summer is almost over… From beach to backyard barbecue, keep that celebratory, summery feeling going (and mini meltdowns at bay) with our round-up of the best host gifts for moms and their kids.

Something that feels good…

For mom: Hill House Home Sisi Silk Pillowcase

She’ll feel like a queen sleeping on this mulberry silk pillowcase – one of those special indulgences that every woman needs but never treats herself to! Silk not only feels divine but it’s naturally hypoallergenic, helps skin retain moisture, and reduces bedhead and split ends.  

For kid: Our rainbow Ombre Zip Hoodie 

Softer than soft, in dreamy ice-creamy ombre. Make it a double scoop of awesome with our matching legging.

Something for play…

For mom: Minute Mimosa Sugar Cube Trio 

These sweet little champagne cubes take her party sparkles next-level. For instant mimosas, simply drop a cube into a glass of bubbly, muddle to dissolve, and clink!

For kid: Not Parent-Approved Card Game

The kid-friendly version of Cards Against Humanity – great for parties, sleepovers and family game night.

Something delicious…

For mom: Biscoche Macaroons 

Choose from 6, 12 or 24 macaroons (gluten- and egg-free), in flavors like Caramel, Mango or Tart Cherry. For every box sold, Biscoche donates a meal to someone in need. She can serve them the day-of or save for a moreish brunch treat to delight overnight guests.

For kid: Yum! Candy Making Lab Kit 

An educational way to kill oodles of time, with 16 edible experiments including gummy worms and crystal rock candy.
