If she loves to capture memories with her phone camera, this vintage-inspired instant camera is sure to make her smile. Not only will it save her some storage space on her phone, but it will give her an instant memento that she can frame or put on the fridge (no ink or film needed). Plus, Brach says it also features an SD card slot, so she can digitally save each memory that she snaps, too.

Moms typically get stuck carrying everything, Brach laughs, so why not treat her to a nice tote that she can actually use? She says this canvas-style bag is like the "Mary Poppins" of totes — it's roomy enough to hold everyday essentials but can also double as a beach bag or a grocery bag, too.
This tote bag features an embroidered letter on the front and a zippered interior pocket. It's made with reinforced canvas handles that can support the weight of your daily essentials and it features a moisture-resistant interior, according to the brand.
Brach says letter necklaces are a major jewelry trend and she is loving this dainty "Mama" necklace from Benevolence LA. It looks way more expensive than it actually is (it's under $20!) and it comes in three different finishes: rose gold, gold and silver. While it would make a nice gift for almost anyone on your list this year, Brach notes that it is especially sweet for new moms or moms-to-be.
