Gift giving to a mother/friend/grandmother/aunt is a special way to show how you care. From tech finds to food, here are some unique gift ideas that recently caught my eye.
One Line a Day Journal: List moves so quickly when you have kids. To remember the small and big moments of life, we love the “One Line a Day” journal that serves as a great way for moms to write everything down as they capture the everyday moments of motherhood. As a three year journal, it allows moms to document, quote and record the moments of life. We love the beautiful colors and how this serves as such a thoughtful and personal gift this Mother's Day.
effie’s paper: There is something so special to giving traditional paper goods and one of our newest favorites is effie's paper. Founded and created by Kalyn Johnson Chandler, the line features a bright, modern, clean, and chic collection including thank you notes, notecards, personalized stationary and more. Some styles we love are the Guinea Fowl and the Honeycomb Thank You Notes.
Lake Champlain Chocolate: For something sweet we love Lake Champlain Chocolate. Through this line you can discover a chocolates that celebrate local ingredients like pure maple syrup, local butter, Vermont fresh cream, and honey straight from the hive. Other favorites are the Dark Chocolate Orange Peels – a refreshing treat made from Valencia Orange Peels and the Chocolate Flowers Tote Bag that is filled to the brim with foiled caramel milk chocolate flowers in a tote decorated with colorful and floral tied off with a pink ribbon, all for $10.
Bonnie Dana Buchner Designs: We got pitched for a lot of bag companies, but there was something distinctly different about the style by Bonnie Dana Buchner. A line that includes luxury handbags and accessories, we love how this includes a fresh take on classic designs as they transforming concepts into pieces that are distinctly specific to the brand. For Mother's Day I love the Compact Courier Bag that features a laser engraved leather bag that adds will instantly style, comfort, and luxury to your look. Other favorites include the Dweller Backpack and the fun Bonpom Cap. All BDB products are made locally in Brooklyn and New York City, including the luxury handbags which are made in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Soma: We all know that we need to drink water everyday and one way to do so is with the super chic, eco-friendly Soma water filter. This includes a shatter proof glass that is made from biodegradable materials including coconut shells, silk, and a plant based casing. Proven to reduce chlorine, taste and odor. They are also made with artfully crafted glass that keeps water crisp and fresh as it looks beautiful and fits perfectly in your hand and fridge.
Fruit Company Gift Basket: For mother's that don't live near you, we recommend the collection of gift baskets from the Fruit Company. On the site you can discover a collection of curated fruit baskets featuring artisanal cheeses, meats and more. Personally, I love the Al Fresco Picnic Basket with its delicious collection of Seattle Chocolate coconut, Lucero lemon-infused olive oil and lemon white balsamic vinegar, dry salami, creamy TouVelle cheese, honey wheat crackers, Fuji apples and Red and Green D’Anjou pears. Other favorites include the Mother's Day Treasure Box and the Mother's Day Classic Tower.
Canon® PowerShot™ ELPH 115 IS 16.0MP Digital Camera (Pink): As a mom I am always taking pictures of my kiddos but sometimes my cell phone just doesn't cut it. My favorite new camera is the Canon PowerShot Digital Camera from Radio Shack that features an incredible 8x 28mm wide-angle lens to take close up pictures as well as sharp far away pictures with its 5X zoom lens. Additional bonuses of the camera allow you to shoot high-definition video, Scene and fun modes such as Super Vivid, Poster Effect & Miniature Effect add an artistic look to your shots. I also love the fashionable pink color that is really fun as you capture your life's precious moments.
Black Box Wines: It might be cliche but at the end of the day moms just want to relax and sometimes that means unwinding with a glass of vino. For Mother's Day, we suggest Black Box Wines, a collection of wines that comes from the vineyards of Argentina and Chile. This includes reds such as Cabernet Sauvingon, Merlot, Malbec, Shiraz and Red Elegance and whites in Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Moscato. As the #1 boxed wine on the market, Black Box Wines is an eco-friendly and easy way to enjoy high-quality wines at a fraction of the cost of your traditional bottle.
