Our Favorites for Mother's Day!

Posted

Mother’s Day is the one day of the year that mamas can ask for, well, anything really without guilt.  Can you refill my coffee? My feet are a little sore, hint hint.  Any chance I could sleep for another hour or so? Oh yeah – it’s a great day!

So whether your looking to pamper a special lady in your life or looking for hints to “pass along,” we’ve got you covered.  Here are our favorite pamper & spoil her this Mother’s Day!

Custom Stationary

This one is, admittedly, a bit of a splurge.That said, I know very few ladies who don’t appreciate some really great stationary, especially when it’s personalized. (Rifle Paper Co. - $50 +)

Keepsake Jewelry

The “mom jewelry” can be a bit overdone but not if you’re buying it from Swoon (one of our favorites!). Their pieces are oh so delicate and the perfect unique gift that Mom can keep forever. (Swoon Jewelry - $60)

A Fancy Day at the Beach

We love Mom owned companies - enter our next item! In addition to making us super stylish at the beach, this mama is on a mission to raise awareness about skin cancer and to provide great looking swimwear/sun protection for the whole family.  Her newest product is this oh so dreamy "roundie" towel. Love!! And your mama will too. (SwimZip - $85)

Pretty (& natural) Perfume

Ok – admittedly we’re a bit bias on this one but why not? These all-natural perfume sticks are so delicate but leave you feeling pretty & fresh.Our “Mommy & Me” Sets, shown above, are a perfect way to share in your special day with your favorite little lady! Because they’re made with just coconut oil, beeswax and an essential oil blend, these are even safe for new and expectant mamas! (Poppy Drops - $18, 2 Pack)

Picnic Goodies

One of the simplest pleasures in life is a picnic in the park! If you’re favorite mama doesn’t have a great picnic basket/bag than this is the gift for you.This one (from Crate & Barrel) has all the essentials for picnicking (wine bottle/glass holder, utensil compartments etc.) but can also double as a beach bag! Simply put together her favorite fare, and don’t forget a colorful blanket and had out for a Mother’s Day picnic (gift in tow). (Crate & Barrel - $99)

Bathtime!

Sometimes a warm, bubble bath can make everything better! You can make bath bombs at home (here's a recipe) or you can buy them! Grab an assortment and put them in a pretty box. Sometime simple is best! (Whipped Up Wonderful - $6)
