PSA: Mother’s Day this year is Sunday May 14th! Do not forget!
For those of you who will be running out last minute or think it’s acceptable to get your wife a new vacuum cleaner for Mother’s Day (It’s not), I’ve put together some of my favorite gifts for the Momma in your life. Below I share some of my favorite East Coast based companies with you that will serve up the perfect gift for Mom.
So please!! Cook her breakfast, extra butter and vanilla on her pancakes, let her sleep in, maybe even allow her to take an uninterrupted shower and don’t mess up her coffee. Happy Mother’s Day to all great Momma’s out there.
PS. We like sports cars too. But these gorgeous gifts will do.
#1. Artifact Uprising – Cork and Brass Print Stand $25
There is nothing I adore more than a great photo. Artifact Uprising will have you swooning to create the perfect memories that stand out in your home. I love the simplicity of this Cork and Brass Print stand with gold detail to hold your favorite photo for her. Be sure to print out the photo for the complete gift. They also offer a great every day print set for $14.
#2. Franklin and Whitman – Face Mask Kit + Face Mask $24-$34
For the mom that likes to pamper herself, Bailey and I are all about the Face Masks from Franklin and Whitman. This Philly based company shares 5% of proceeds to animal rescue partnerships. They also have a great dog nose balm for the Momma with Furbabies. Our favorite masks are the Queen Village Mask and Spruce Hill Mask with active charcoal however there are other varieties to choose containing pomegranate to coffee…Frank and Whit is all natural, plant based, preservative free and cruelty free. You can’t help but love the product names all named after heartfelt places in Philly.
#3. Food52 Enamel Coffee Pot $36 – $42
In sage, black or cream you can pick up this beautifully crafted gift for Mom since we all know, she needs a cup or two of coffee. Just a little something to make her kitchen and her day a little brighter. Stovetop safe, lightweight and comes in two sizes. A for adorable.
#4. Gottalottaheart Cards – $3.99
For those who just want to say ‘Love ya’ Mom in a few short and sweet words, be sure to check out handcrafted cards from Gottalottaheart. All cards are 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” and come with colorful envelopes in an individual cellophane sleeve. How sweet is that? I love the quality and sweet messages of these cards created by a beautiful mother daughter duo. Gottalottaheart is also East Coast based.
#5. Olives & Grace Mom Tote Bag – $22
If you’re in a walking city like Boston or Philly, a cute tote bag is a must! From Olives and Grace located in the South End of Boston, this super cute ‘Mom’ tote is simple yet stylish to pack up your groceries or errands and get going. I also love the idea of using the bag to wrap away a beautiful gift. For my Boston babes, be sure to check out Olives and Grace in person or you can order using the link below.
#6. The Gift of Great Hair – Strand Salon
While I know the ‘spa’ gift card is a little cliche for mom on Mother’s Day, for those beauty mavens in your life treat them to the Lather Lounge at Strand Salon in Glastonbury, CT. Well worth the short trip for anyone in New England (seriously I would fly here), make time for a girls day and head into Strand. Strand is a drop dead gorgeous salon like you’ve never seen before with a team of uber talented stylists that will give you the hair of your dreams. Literally. I put my personal stamp (or shall I say precious head of hair) on Strand.
