Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Now that Easter has passed, it's time to start thinking about Mom.  Mother's Day is May 8 - right around the corner!  Still looking for that perfect gift?  We've got lots of great ideas for you to choose from.   Here are some of our favorites -  

 These cute garden tools and gloves are perfect for the mom who loves to be outside playing in the garden.  Instead of flowers, give your mom the Mother's Day garden-in-a-bag.  Everything you need is included and the flowers grow right in the bag!  A fun gift that will last much longer than cut flowers.

 What Mom doesn't want to be pampered?  We have a wide assortment of soaps and lotions in a variety of fragrances.  Put together a little "spa" day for Mom at home!  Add one of our new lavender sachets made from vintage linens - perfect for tucking in the linen closet or dresser drawers.

Every Mom needs an extra shopping bag or two.  These bags by Envirosax are great for everything from groceries to travel.  They roll up small making them easy to carry with you in your purse and then unroll into a roomy shopping bag.  Skip the traditional gift bag and use one of these instead!

Frames are a great gift for Mom.  Slip in a cherished family photo or the lastest shot of the grandkids and you're sure to have a hit!

Treat Mom to tea with a collection of our beautiful teapots and flavorful teas.

Does your Mom prefer relaxing with a glass of wine at the end of the day?  Make Mom feel special with one of our hand-painted wine glasses in a pretty floral pattern.  Add a tin of chocolates to pair with her favorite wine and make it even better!

Show Mom just how much you care with one of these books meant especially for her.  Want to learn a little more about your Mom?  "My Mom" is a book of questions for Mom to answer about her life.  Once complete, she can return it to you making it two special gifts in one!

Of course Mom's gift has to be something special and we're here to help you find the perfect thing.  Don't forget our complimentary gift wrap to help make gift-giving even easier!

Telling Time

Every home needs a clock.  Without one you'd never know if you're running late for that important meeting or that it's time for your favorite tv show.  Sure, clocks serve a purpose, but who says they can't look good doing it?  These burlap designs from CourtneyJack take clocks beyond their original function and turn them into works of art. 

Who knew burlap could look so good?!
