Friday Favorites: Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Happy Friday!  Mother's Day is right around the corner and I wanted to share with you some of my favorite gift ideas including a gracious discount with a wonderful artist who does custom portraits (see below).

While the sentiment behind Mother's Day is what makes it truly special; I don't know a Mom out there who doesn't deserve a token of appreciation.  Candles, jewelry and flowers may not be outside of the box, but I think these picks are the cream of the crop:


1) Custom Family or Child Portrait: A sentimental and personal gift like a custom portrait is something every mother would love.  I adore the work of Lachlan and Lenny ; the whimsical interpretations and colors are beautiful!   And she is kindly offering my readers a discount for Mother's Day!  Use the code PINKTOGREEN15 for 15% off your order!  

2) Beauty products:  This hand cream from Aesop is useful but far from pedestrian.  Their products make everything feel luxurious.  

3) Coffee table books: I'm anxiously awaiting the publication of Mark D. Sike's book, All-American Decorating .  It would be such a nice addition to a coffee table or bookshelf.  

4) Jewelry:  The cuff's from Margaret Elizabeth are perfectly stackable and come in such a variety of pretty hues.  

5) Candles:  Spoil her with the holy grail of candles, Diptyque.  

6) Pretty Water Bottle:  The one's from S'well have been on my radar for a while.  They keep things hot or cold, come in the best colors and patterns and their slim fit would be an easy addition to a diaper bag or purse.  

7) Cute flats:  What Mom doesn't love shoes?  These classic spring kicks from Superga are at the top of my list! 

8) Perfume:  While this is personal to many women, I recently smelled this one while at Duty Free and was huffing the sample card the entire flight home. It's light, springy and seems universally flattering.  

9) Sleepware:  Spring and summer are the perfect time for wearing men's inspired sleep shirts.  This one from JCrew is supposed to be very comfy and monogram-able! 

10)  Flowers:  Mat never fails to be amazed at the power of flowers.  Call me simple, but white roses are my love language.  What are yours?
