Are you an angry mama?

We get it! If you've spent the summer driving the kiddos to practice, camp, and sleepovers, all while thinking to yourself "Well, when do I get to take a vacation?".... you'll find some great ways to RELAX at Smith & Edwards.

Summer Stress Relief: 5 Fun Distractions

  1. Angry Mama kitchen goodies

    Scrubbing the microwave is one of my least favorite things to do.... maybe it's because I'm 5'2 and the microwave is literally over my head.

    Vickie, our Housewares manager, found this cute & hilarious line of kitchen goodies that no mama should be without.

    Angry Mama jar openers, microwave cleaners, and mats
    Check out the Angry Mama microwave cleaner (just add vinegar & water!), silicone lid opener, and mat.

  2. Adult Coloring Books:

    Did you know? August 2 is Coloring Book Day! Coloring isn't just for kids.

    In Ogden, I've even seen adult coloring book groups meeting at Grounds for Coffee downtown. Get a group of your girl friends together and have a coloring book night.

    Adult Coloring Books at Smith & Edwards - plus 99-cent crayons!

    We've carried kids' coloring books for a long time, and we've added fun floral, geometric, and designer adult-friendly coloring books. Plus check out the 99-cent pack of crayons - I love colored pencils, but you don't have to sharpen crayons!

  3. Lotions & Body Scrubs

    Your hands have done so much: held your babies, changed their diapers, pulled your earrings back from their little fingers, fixed meals, taken care of the dog, vacuumed, loaded load after load in the dishwasher - time to pamper them. Choose some J.R. Watkins (the same brand that makes high-quality spices) or Caldrea lotions & body scrubs to thank your hands for everything they do for you.

    With scents such as Lavender, Grapefruit, Coconut Milk & Honey, Pear Blossom Agave, Pomegranate Acai, and even Peppermint rejuvenating foot lotion, you'll finally start experiencing the relaxation you deserve.

    You'll find Watkins, Caldrea, & more kinds of body scrubs & lotions by aisle 12 in our Housewares department!

  4. Aromatherapy

    That's right, Aromatherapy is coming to Smith & Edwards! In September we'll be carrying the Airome line of essential oil diffusers.

    Airome Essential Oils Diffuser

    You'll find essential oils at Smith & Edwards soon as well as these ultrasonic essential oil diffusers. These diffusers use ultrasonic vibrations to create a soothing mist of water and essential oils. All the benefits of essential oils plus a wonderful room scent in an elegant LED-lit diffuser.

    In the meantime, check out our deliciously-scented line of McCall's candles.

  5. Take time for yourself!

    No mama should have to feel like she's in it alone! Take time for yourself - you can't give & care for everyone on an empty tank.

    Leave the kids with Grandma while you check out a pickleball league, comedy show, First Friday Art Stroll, yoga class, bike ride, or a craft night with friends.
