Why a robe makes for the perfect gift

Why a robe makes for the perfect gift

It was my birthday last week, and it got me thinking of what would make for a perfect gift. 

Sometimes gifting is easy-peasy and you know exactly what to get for that special someone. But at other times, gifting can be downright hard. You could spend a while trying to find the perfect gift or it could leave you completely stumped. Don’t get me wrong, you might know this person well and would want to get something perfect, but there are so many things to consider. 

The solution is a gift that ticks a few boxes, just to stay on the safe side! Now, I may be biased but I think a robe makes for the perfect gift. Here’s why. 

5 things I packed in my hospital bag and actually used

I have never stressed out more about packing a bag. There was a list, there was reading into what I will need, YouTube videos, and an open bag left in the guest bedroom that I kept chucking things into. 

From all the things I took I found a couple of items extremely useful and what I might call must-haves. If I was to repack I would definitely include them.

Practising self-care through pregnancy.

Practising self-care through pregnancy.

Self-care is a continuous path of learning about yourself and discovering what makes you feel better or worse. For me, through the course of my pregnancy, it has very much been about the loss of control and the changes to my body which in turn took a toll on my confidence. Through this, what I have also realised more than ever is the need to practise self-love and through that engage in self-care. Here's how I practised this during pregnancy.

Why a Maternity Robe is a must have for pregnancy and beyond.

Since finding out I was pregnant in December 2020, time has seemed to move at a very fast pace. At the same time, with all the changes that my body and mind had gone through since then, it seems like that day was so long ago now. Journeying through the months, it was quite a ride, and for me, it has been up, down, roundabout all over the place. Through it all, I have noticed that my favourite robe has been a constant companion when de-stressing and relaxing.

Kimonos, Kaftans and Robes - What is the difference?

Kimono is an iconic and a traditional Japanese garment, when translated it means ‘Something to wear’. Kimonos are typically hand-sewn into ‘T’ shape from unique silk fabric tied with a belt. Similarly, with African and Middle eastern origins, Kaftans (sometimes spelled as ‘Caftans’) are lightweight dresses that hang loosely on the body. Evolved from both the kimonos and kaftans, Robes are the western adoption of the lightweight outer garment to envelop you in luxury and comfort.

Wealth in everyday luxuries. Here’s my top 6.

The year that must not be named (2020!) has taught me to appreciate the everyday luxuries. Those that I might have otherwise taken for granted. It has given me a valuable lesson in taking a look around and appreciating the existence around me. The joy of taking in those luxuries at a more lazy pace. I had a sudden appreciation of the time that I had to myself as opposed to the frantic rush of aiming towards betterment.
