To celebrate those special mamas (or maternal figures) in your life, I’ve complied a few gift ideas that I feel add a personal, and meaningful, touch. P.S. You’ve got time! Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th.
Bouquet of flowers for a lasting sentiment. Above from Sprout Home (in Brooklyn and Chicago). Locate a florist near you here.
Head out for a meal of mom’s choice. If, like me, you live far away from one another, get (or make!) a certificate for the meal, and treat her the next time you meet. Mine would most likely pick dinner at Gandy Dancer in Ann Arbor, starting off with their coconut shrimp appetizer (above) and hefty bread basket. As an alternative, celebrate with a night in, whipping up something together.
Subscription to her favorite magazine(s) to beat those newsstand prices. Sign up for virtually any magazine through Amazon.
Matching “Alphabet Rings” from Catbird. Swap initials or wear the first initial of your last name, $56 (silver) and $96 (gold).
A tray from watercolor artist, and former textile designer for Ralph Lauren Home, Caitlin McGauley, $165.
Recipe Box to place all her beloved concoctions. Add a few of your favorites for her to try. Box from Sugar Paper, $98.
Frame a favorite photo of the two of you. I love the simplicity of this one by Kate Spade, $50-$75.
Happy early Mother’s Day to my mama!! xoxo, Sarah
