Mother’s Day is less than four weeks away on May 13th so I’m giving you ample heads up. You have no excuse not to find something special for the special woman or women in your life. As I’ve mentioned before, when giving an ephemeral gift like flowers or a spa day, I think it’s nice to give a more lasting gift so they always have something to remember you by.
How about giving a bottle of wine and the chic new book Mother and Child. She can sip some vino while reading about 70 iconic families of mothers and children photographed by Claiborne Swanson Frank. One of them featured in Lauren Santo Domingo in the first photo.
Aerin Porcelain Gardenia would look pretty on your mother’s desk or vanity.
How about the Fortnum & Mason Queen’s Hamper for the queen in your life?
I love pearl jewelry and these Gold and Pearl Earrings would look pretty on any mom.
This set of four Botanicals would be a beautiful gift for the gardener in your life.
I love fresh flowers but sometimes they don’t work in homes with pets or if you travel a lot or have allergies. This faux Rose Arrangement would be a lovely gift for someone who can’t have real blooms.
The Book of Flowers full of drawings by Pierre-Joseph Redouté is so beautiful that I might have to buy a copy for myself. It’s perfect for any flower lover.
How about the Aquazzara de Gournay Jacquard Slingback Pump for the chic interior designer mom in your life.
If you’re taking your mom to get a manicure and pedicure, send her home with a polish set for touch ups like this Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set.
If you’re sending flowers, take one of these Basketweave Vases to the flower shop to send with your bouquet so she has a lasting gift after Mother’s Day. Better yet, send a monthly arrangement for bonus points.
Bring this Wedgewood Butterfly Bloom 2-Tier Cake Stand with petit fours and other treats and your mother will think you’re the sweetest child.
If you’ve been a little bad this year, give your mom this set of four Embroidered Floral Cocktail Napkins and a bottle of her favorite alcohol since you’ve probably driven her to dink.
Take your mom on a spa day and then send her home with this beautiful Printed Silk Satin Robe. It’s so pretty that you might want to buy yourself one too.
Another fabulous book of flowers perfect for a gift is Martha’s Flowers.
This Wedgewood Large Teapot and a box of her favorite tea would be a lovely gift as well.
Moms probably don’t buy themselves luxury candles so why not treat her to a Diptyque Rose Delight Candle. You also can’t go wrong with the Baies Scented Candle too.
How much would your mom love you if you gave her a set of these Wave Frames filled with special family photos?
You would win child of the year if you gave your mom these Cuyana Travel Cases with ticket for a special trip tucked inside. Maybe get dad to pay for it and invite him along.
