Hooray for Mothers!

Do you have the perfect, most thoughtful gift that shows your mom (or someone who's like a mom) how much you love and appreciate her?  Mother's day is quickly approaching (this weekend!) and, if you're like us, you've probably been so busy that you haven't even had a chance to think about it.  Don't get stuck Sunday morning without a gift, or worse, picking up a gift card at the gas station on the way! Here are a few great items to inspire you.  We're sure that your mother would be thrilled to receive items like these (not that she'd dare tell you if she wasn't...) 

For the traditional mother with a little modern flair we love these bird nest necklaces by vixensnaturaljewelry. These adorable necklaces can be customized in gold or silver, and pearls can be added to represent the number of children or grandchildren!

For the mom with the green thumb we recommend these adorable garden markers that are made out of flattened spoons and hand stamped with cute fonts!  These markers, by JLynnCreations, are sure to make her garden grow in style.

 For the sentimental chef, we love this handwritten recipe platter by customsepia.  Take your mom's or grandma's favorite or most cherished recipe and have it externalized on a beautiful platter. Or, check out this adorable plates that can be customized with musings about your very own mother.

Never underestimate the power of song and dance..and drama queens.  Bring mom, grandma, or the special "queen" in your life to see a Broadway show (like "Wicked")!  Instead of spending money on trinkets or material items, spend the money on an experience that you can enjoy together and create memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Please your mother (and Mother Earth!) by gifting some of these beautiful, homemade soaps by Mary at Heaven and Earth LLC. If these soaps smell as good as they look then your mom is in for a real treat! Plus, not only do they look adorable in their eco-friendly, recycled packaging, your mother will be so pleased to know that these soaps are vegan and made with all natural ingredients!

For the fitness fanatic, we're big fans of bicycles.  A cute, retro inspired beach cruiser would be the perfect gift to keep Mom feeling young, healthy, and energetic.  We like this baby blue one for it's great style, but there are many more from Target that are offered at a more reasonable price.

And, of course, for the fashionista in your life, we love a great bag that they can use to tote around their essentials this spring and summer. This large tote bag is one that any busy mom would crave! Available at Urban Outfitters, this baby is big enough for some flip flops, a camera, a towel, good book, and even a sweater for those chilly nights. 

Wishing all you moms a beautiful mother's day!
