With Mother's Day just around the corner it's time to start looking for a sweet treat for the special mom, mother-in-law, sister, wife, or grandmother in your life. It's so difficult to find the perfect gift for someone who means so incredibly much to you but the good things is that if anyone taught you that it's the thought that counts it's your wonderful mother! So here are a few things I think the special ladies in your life would love this Mother's Day...
I love Gurgle Pots, they are such a fun gift! They come in an amazing array of colors, provide such fun as they "gurgle" away while you pour, and creator Matt Ellison is adorable. I know one of these would put a smile on your mom's face and offer a fun topic of conversation at the dinner table. They are available online at www.gurglepot.com or at Splurge in Greenwich (39 Lewis Street). If you don't live in the Greenwich area email Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org and he can send you a list of local retailers in your area!
If your mom is from the Fairfield County area it's likely that she loves everything seashore. I think these soaps are such a beautiful gift and I love the apothecary jars they come in. These would also make a wonderful hostess gift this summer, there's a smaller version for a little treat too! Everything on Gianna Rose's site is wonderful but currently it appears to be down, check back soon!
Does your mom love to bake, share books or write letters? Check out these wonderful personalized items from Felix Doolittle - bakers labels, book plates or return address labels. They offer an endless number of designs so you can personalize them to any special interests. Why not treat mom to a great new book and a set of book plates? Or maybe some new stationary with matching address labels? My guess is she'll use them to write you a few extra letters!
Whatever you give your mom this Mother's Day be sure to take a few minutes to tell her exactly how much you love her, since having her in your life is the best gift of all!
