Mom's on the list
We peeped our head out from the hole we've been working in the last few months to discover it's spring! Hi there! It's been a whirlwind around here. So much so that we've hired a new team member to help us (Shauna) keep organized. More on that later.
So, Mother's Day is soon upon us, and we all know she deserves way more than a Day to be recognized. So, in addition to these great gift ideas we've rounded up; bubbles, brunch, a trip to the museum, or an afternoon at the pool are all perfect ways to celebrate Mom and everything she does for everyone else.
For the mom who loves to entertain, the Famille Rose collection from Williams Sonoma gives us all the vintagy, flowery vibes of grandma's best china. In fact, we'd encourage mixing it up with your own vintage china and glassware to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind table.
Bright stemware is our jam. And we love that this set from Anthropologie comes already assorted in happy colors. They completely go with our mix and match table setting aesthetic.
Charcuterie for dinner is a regular occurrence in our house. However, most of the time it's grazing over open containers on the kitchen counter. This Lotus shaped board from Uncommon Goods gives us a great excuse to create something a bit more presentable.
Those ugly gardening gloves mom has from the hardware store are probably due for an upgrade. These super cute ones are from Uncommon Goods and have faux leather palms and extra long cuffs to protect from all the prickly things. Matching hat, because, of course and it's all machine washable!
Raise your hand if you use an old plastic pitcher to water the plants? These glass watering cans from Anthropologie are pretty enough to sit out on the ledge in the kitchen and while gently reminding you to water the plants.
For moms that are just starting out on their gardening adventure, a window sill herb starter kit is just the right thing for her to practice her skills. Complete with plant markers so you don't mistake the mint for cilantro.
Stressed Out Mom
To be honest, we ALL fit in to this category, right? So, remember that Mom loves you, but she also would enjoy 20 minutes of uninterrupted time in the bathtub for Pete's sake.
A shiny brass bath caddy gives mom easy access to all of her bath essentials. Pretty sure we could live here, just leave some cheese and wine outside the door every day or so.
Never underestimate the value of beautiful packaging. The yummy bubble bath here is one thing, but the gorgeous floral bottle gives an extra "ooohh" that we are totally here for.
Every season, Capri Blue gives us our favorite candle scents in to die for glass jars and this season is no exception. We are partial to the Volcano flavor but at only $26 for the petite jar, you can give all the scents a try.
Now, get shopping, and remember that we may earn some $$ from these links. Also, check out our Gift Guide for more great things for mom.
Oh, and back to our announcement earlier. We are super excited to introduce you to Hannah, our newest team member. Her title is Design Assistant, which means everything from "pick out a lamp to go here", to "go meet the tile guy" to "here, hang some art". She is amazing and we are so happy to have her on the team.
Happy Mother's Day!
