Mom Things - Meet_Julie


Julie Powers is the owner and co-founder of Mom Things Subscription Box. She and her family live in Ashburn, Virginia. She has two small boys; Graydon and Rowan, with her husband Ryan and a fluffy 80 pound Golden Retriever named Rufus.  They spend their time running around from one sport to the next, enjoying the Northern Virginia Wine Country on nice days with friends and get up to Hingham, MA near Cape Cod in the summers to visit friends and family, where Julie grew up. 

Julie's mission for Mom Things is simple…in the midst of every day chaos make a Mom feel special. Nothing goes in the Mom Things box that Julie doesn’t love and use herself.  She defines the box arrival as an experience.  The moment the gorgeous navy blue and rose gold boxes arrives on the doorstep, a mom gets excited. Finally, some happy mail just for her! When the box is opened, the very first item, you will see is a quote. This quote changes every other month, but it designed to make a woman smile, feel inspired, empowered and happy.  The box has already made a woman feel special and the surprises haven’t even been opened yet! Julie’s customers describe the feeling perfectly, “it’s like Christmas morning every other month”. 

She fills these gorgeous boxes with fun items in all different categories to make moms feel pampered, pretty and spoiled. Previous boxes include beautiful jewelry such as earrings and necklaces.  She loves adding self-care items like delicious smelling bath bombs, face masks, retinol creams, lip glosses, eye shadow sticks and make up remover wipes.  Julies goal is also to have something soft and fun in every box like hats, gloves, shawls, leggings and other fun accessories. She also loves to idea of gifting moms practical items in the kitchen that maybe someone won’t buy themselves.  Julies favorite practical items include a handheld coffee frother and meat grinder, a Mom Things exclusive miniature brownie spatula inspired by her Mother-in-law and so many more fun items. 

Julie managed large teams of meeting and event planners in the healthcare space for 20 years and decided to spend a bit more time at home to raise her boys while following her passion to create products and a community to make mothers everywhere feel spoiled! She loves putting her Business Degree from Roanoke College to use.

Julie loves to tell people that Mom Things is now delivering to hundreds of Moms in every state in the United States and is so excited to keep growing Mom Things to spoil all the moms! Come give us a try, we can’t wait spoil you!
