Yuzen Mother's Day Giveaway via

Personally, I can’t think of a better gift for a special mom than a box full of luxurious, natural and organic products for pampering. If you are a regular Mindful Momma reader, you know that I’ve been singing the praises of Yuzen for a while now. Their carefully curated selection of gifts is so unique – many of the products are things you haven’t seen anywhere else, made by small, eco-conscious companies, from safe, natural ingredients. The gift of Yuzen is the perfect way to show your love for the moms in your life!
