    Mother-daughter owned business elevates Easter, Mother’s Day, and beyond with premium chocolates, cookies, nuts, and more

    There are all kinds of reasons why people send delectable sweets and treats to their loved ones in the springtime. Mother’s Day has been associated with gifts of appreciation on the second Sunday of every May for over 100 years. The practice of exchanging Easter baskets dates back to medieval times, and the first chocolate Easter eggs made the scene in the 1800s. These lovely traditions have endured – for obvious reasons ­– to this day.

    Whether you want to say “Thanks,” “I love you,” or “I’m thinking of you,” nothing quite hits the spot like a fresh selection of irresistible gourmet goodies. And nobody understands the art of gifting like Bonnie & Pop. Their elegant spring holiday gift boxes and baskets are filled with the highest quality chocolates, cookies, nuts, candies, chocolate-dipped pretzels, dried fruits, and other mouth-watering favorites.

    But the mother-daughter team behind Bonnie & Pop knows that customer satisfaction is not just about what’s inside the basket. Every order is a commitment to making both the recipient and the giver feel special. These gifts are creatively packaged for any occasion, easy to order online, and delivered contact-free. Plus, they’re available at a variety of price points to fit any budget.

    Why does Bonnie & Pop put so much TLC into their creations? “The company is named for our two beloved and exceptional grandparents- My father’s mother (Bonnie) and my mother’s father (Jake (Pop)),” says company owner Mookie D.

    “We were raised by their example and emphasis on making someone else’s life better whenever you’re in the position to do it. “Bonnie and Pop devoted their lives to making people happy. They’re the inspiration behind everything we do.”

    A gift from Bonnie & Pop makes any occasion a special one. The spring holidays are no exception. Easter choices include the delightful Seven Treat Assortment, the Easter Rows box filled with row after row of gourmet chocolates, the lavish Deluxe Chocolate Gift Set, and the too-good-to-be-true Chocolate Truffle Gift.

    There are also plenty of ways to say happy Mother’s Day. What mom could say no to the eye-popping Pink Chocolate Gift Set, an avalanche of Drenched Pretzels, or the decadent Chocolate Covered Oreo Gift Box?

    For those who prefer healthier choices, options like the gluten-free Dried Fruit Apple Basket, the Nut Crate, and the Deluxe Crate are perennial favorites. All gift boxes and baskets are kosher.

    The Gift Moms Really Want: Calming Allay Wellness Lamp, Helps with Sleep and Headaches Too

    It is never to early to think about a great gift for next month’s Mother’s Day. Many moms would love a gift that brings them more and better sleep, reduces stress and alleviates headaches. Introducing the Allay Therapy Lamp, a revolutionary wellness lamp that gives women the gift of better sleep and a calmer mind.

    Allay was founded by a team of migraine researchers and entrepreneurs as a way to help those who suffer from light sensitivity and headaches. The Allay team is focused on one simple mission: to help people with light sensitivity emerge from the darkness and get back to doing what they love.

    Allay Lamp is uniquely soothing to your eyes and brain, even when you’re most sensitive to light. Discovered by a Harvard Medical School neuroscientist, Allay’s patented band of light is calming during a migraine – or any time – helping you get back to reading, working, and being yourself.

    • The Benefits: The Allay Lamp was designed to help women manage nightly sleep routines, alleviate headaches in a non pharmaceutical way, and more, by emitting a soothing, natural glow that clams the brain to ease stress, reduce anxiety, and create better quality, longer sleep.  And there are also very specific benefits for moms! From the “up and down every hour” sleep patterns of newborns looking for their next meal to the sense of being overwhelmed and stressed that comes with parenting any age child, insomnia is a problem for moms and dads. However, by using the Allay Lamp in all bedrooms, expecting + new mothers and families can have a low stress, minimal sensory disruptive environment that will help every member of the family to fall asleep and stay that way. In addition, expectant and nursing moms will like the fact that the Allay Lamp offers non medicated relief from headache and migraine pain.
    • The Technology: What sets Allay Lamp apart from other colored lights, is the green light. The one band of light wave, green light, has minimal impact, as electrical signals that green light emits via the eye to the brain are much smaller and therefore much less disturbing than other colors. The green light helps create a calmer brain, which has direct implications for stress, headache pain and sleep quality, which ultimately affect a person’s ability to function every day.

    • Created with Purpose: With the help of a team of entrepreneurs and an engineer from NASA, the calming and effective green light emitting Allay Lamp was born and the big winners with this product are women. So many struggle with migraines and headaches, as well as insomnia and stress and anxiety caused by today’s hustle and bustle lifestyle. Allay is truly a difference maker.

    As you go about your life, the light you see generates electrical signals in your eyes. These signals cause a reaction in the brain, and it can be quite intense even in everyday light. While everyone squints in the bright sun, some people – often those with migraines, cluster headaches, brain trauma or dry eyes – are extremely sensitive to even small amounts of light. They end up spending much of their lives isolated in a dark room or wearing sunglasses to try to keep their pain from getting even worse. Fortunately, Prof. Rami Burstein has discovered a precise narrow band of natural light that lets you see and function without the discomfort of everyday light: the Allay band of light. Allay lamp retails for $179 and is available for purchase on the Allay Lamp website, https://allaylamp.com/
