That’s what the Scary Mommy Shop is all about. Since we launched the shop in 2018, we’ve been on the hunt for new and amazing brands that are “Scary Mommy” approved. We love their stuff, but we also dig what they’re about – most are women-owned small brands working to make the world a better place.
You’re not going to find these products on Amazon, Mama. These gifts are all about #momlife – fun, not fussy; cool, not conservative; special, not standard. We know you’ll love them because we do.
