Created specifically for moms on the run, this super-chic planner helps you seamlessly organize not only your schedule, but up to four of your children's, too. We love the fact that it also leaves space for jotting down your favorite websites (like SheKnows.com, obviously!), books, movies, music, fashion and more. Plus, it features vacation planning and party prep pages (we all know how critical those are) and a momEssentials pamphlet where you can store all of your family's confidential information in one place.

SHOLDIT clutch wrap
As a mom, sometimes it seems like you just don't have enough hands to go around (literally)! Your cell phone rings and you rummage through your purse trying to find it, all the while attempting to hold one child and round up the other one. Wouldn't it be nice if you could free up at least one of those hands for good? With the ridiculously fashion-forward and multi-functional SHOLDIT clutch wrap, you can! A convenient alternative to toting around a handbag, this stylish accessory may look like a regular old scarf at first, but upon closer examination, it actually features two spacious zipper compartments to store all of your necessities. As if that weren't enough, it can also be worn as a wrap and transformed into a clutch. (SHOLDIT.com, $79)
