Mother's Day Ideas

She picked up your dirty socks for an entire decade. She wiped your tears with the sleeve of her good blouse. She cut the crusts off your sandwich, and was your personal chauffer for years.... Your beloved mother. She may not be perfect, but she did her best. This Mother's Day let her know how much you appreciate her and all that she did for you with our unique gifts. We have some great gift ideas that Mom will love no matter her style…  

  We just received new jewelry from designer Mark Edge. His eco-vintage line (pictured above, left) is deceptively simple and classical and can be easily worn with a t-shirt or jeans or dress it up. It is really wearable.
    And we love the handcrafted items by California artist Jeanine Payer. Each piece is inscribed with a poetic verse, like this one from Rilke: “truly being here is glorious.”  (above, right)

And let Mom know how sweet she is with one of our best-selling candles - the Savannah by Archipelago, with sweet scents of Jasmine and Gardenia. Or try the refreshing scent of Luna: Verbena, Lavender and Thyme. Add a cute box of matches to complete the gift.

Mom works so hard, give her a break with maintenance-free flowers. We have the best botanicals around. Choose her favorite flowers and a vase or urn and let us put it together for you with our special finishing touches.
These handmade decoupage glass trays will be perfect for her dresser or vanity top. They are made in Oster Bay, NY with lovely sayings and quotes.       
Or these pillows made from antique Kimonos will quickly become a coveted family heirloom.

We also have a great collection of frames right now. Just insert a picture of you with Mom when you were little and her heart is sure to melt…
And, finally, Mom will surely brag to her friends about our amazing pieces of hand-crafted Italian pottery that are one-of-a-kind, just like Mom...

We can also giftwrap and ship your gift directly to Mom if you like.

Happy Mother’s Day from everyone at Gardenology.
