The Best Mother’s Day Gifts You Didn’t Know About
May 8th 2016 is quickly approaching us! If you haven’t picked up anything for the lucky ladies in your lives, here are a few not-so-typical ideas to get you started.
Raspberry Sweet Rolls
If food is the way to your mother’s heart, this first idea might be one to seriously consider. A slight twist on the cinnamon roll, this spring-tastic Raspberry Sweet Roll recipe found on Two Peas and Their Pod is as close to love on a plate as you’re gonna get.
Hosting the big Mother’s Day brunch? Check out this creative twist on a centerpiece that would flatter any table. Flowers and mother’s day go hand-in-hand, and this is a fun way to change up the typical bouquet. Click the photo for more options.
Slippers Gift Basket
Treat her feet! This is one gift basket that will keep on giving. From Pretty Providence comes this great idea where you get to pick out some of her favorite travel sized treats, beauty products, etc. and stick them in the coziest slippers you can find. Win-win!
Homemade Sugar Scrub
I don’t know any mom that isn’t a fan of “spa” themed gifts and this DIY idea is one that is economical, homemade and just what she needs. Yes, it’s sugar scrubs! These spa essentials are easy to prepare with often only 3 or 4 ingredients. They can be used as a precursor to hand soap for soft supple hands all year round, or as a body scrub in the shower. They’re even great for your face! Click the photos for the recipes.
Truelux Lotion Candles
Save your mom the cliché Yankee candles she already has too many of and try a unique candle like this one with a lovely feature that puts it a step above the rest. Scents include Black Currant, Lavender, Vanilla, Cucumber Mint, Redwood, Coconut Lime, Blue Spruce & House of Lux.
“Truelux Lotion Candles are made to melt into a hydrating lotion that is just above body temperature. They are made with cosmetic grade soy and shea butter with natural fragrances so they are great for refreshing the air of your home and rejuvenating your skin.”
You’re welcome mom.
A funny twist on the age old “World’s Greatest Mom” mugs can be an easy & simple gift. The mugs below are both under $25 and options on Etsy are endless so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for the mom you’re shopping for. Click the photos to go to the website.
I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts the versatility and practicality of mason jars and – surprise! – here they are again. The following antique inspired soap dispenser + vase by BUtifulDesigns are lovely additions to any sink or shelf in her home.
Looking for a more sentimental gift? How about this Personalized Fingerprint Bar Necklace from GracePersonalized. The necklace is engraved with actual fingerprints and handwriting that you submit. Beautiful and unique!
The Perfect Card
Even if the mom you’re shopping for has requested no gifts, a card should always be mandatory. While you can get them almost anywhere, there are many websites that offer beautiful cards not available in-stores. If your goal is to make her smile, I suggest the Etsy stores, BettieConfetti, LilyandVal and theglitterpress.
