Why these mandala mugs make
a great gift for any mom
Parenting can be hard work, especially when you’re trying to balance it with work. What makes it even more of a challenge is being able to catch a break during the day. Thats why its important to be mentally and emotionally ready as soon as you wake up in the morning. Setting aside 30 minutes for yourself each morning can do wonders.
So why not start your morning ritual with a splash of color and great cup of deliciously brewed coffee or steeped tea with the “Zenning Out” mandala mugs?
If you were up most the night tending to your little ones, studies show that having one cup of tea or coffee in the morning can help you feel less tired and increase your energy levels, thanks to the high levels of antioxidants and nutrients in both of them. I always find that the first cup of coffee helps me feel recharged and more alert to complete my tasks throughout the day. These mugs were designed to remind hard working moms that its okay to start the day by enjoying a moment to themselves!
These dishwasher and microwave safe ceramic mugs not only have a beautiful design on them, but also a colorful rim, handle and inside, which is bound to spice up your mug rack.
One side uses a simple, yet elegant font with the text “Zenning Out” which can be defined as using a combination of your mind, body and spirit for meditation and stress relief. The other side of the mug has an intricate design of a yoga inspired mandala. A rich black colour is used for the design in order to create the highest contrast with the bold solid colours on the inside, handle, and rim of the mug. In the mandala, you will find the use elements such as the lotus flower, being one of the oldest symbols in history to symbolize purity of the heart and mind, a long life, health and good luck.
The bamboo is another element used in the mandala that symbolizes a combination of strength, harmony and balance in one’s life. As its considered lucky in many cultures, many people give a bamboo as a house warming gift to bring good health to the recipient.
Parents sacrifice a lot in their life for kids – especially in the first few years after birth. Sleep is one of the biggest sacrifices that new moms have to make. Many people forget about what the mom goes through after pregnancy as all the attention is drawn to the new baby. Why not get this new mom a meaningful mug to help her start her day? Now that she’s had the baby, she can start enjoying a cup of coffee or tea in her new favourite mug. A new mom usually receives baby clothes, diapers and other essentials, but a simple gift like the “Zenning Out” mug will remind her that she’s still special.
