Make this Mother's Day One to Remember

Despite having endless gift guides thrown at you every single holiday and special occasion, we’d like to give you some truly comprehensive and thoughtful inspiration for this Mother’s Day, or any occasion in which you’d celebrate a wife, mother, daughter, sister, or friend.

Being a reader can be a pretty easy step in the door for gift choices, you simply can’t go wrong with books from her TBR. If you aren’t sure what to get her, check out her Goodreads if she has one, talk to her about books she’s looking forward to, or simply scan her shelves to get an idea of what she likes to read. If you’re still stuck, take a photo of her bookshelf and go into your local bookstore, I guarantee they’ll be able to find some common interests and find some great books to recommend.

It’s safe to say that she enjoys a morning cup of coffee or afternoon tea, either way, we’re huge fans of polish pottery mugs and get an incredible amount of compliments every time we use one of ours. I’d highly recommend the splurge for one of these beauties!

If coffee or tea really is her thing, finding a high quality local company is always a delightful treat. I’m partial to our local Camano Island Coffee beans and the orange spice Pike’s Place tea is so good!

Right next to books, plants and flowers are what make me happiest, and local florists can be found with astonishingly beautiful seasonal bouquets, or even have a delivery service setup that will delight the lady in your life to no end. Berge’s Blooms is one of our best (those are her flowers above), but a quick google search can locate one in your area, or like I mentioned, stop by your local farmer’s market!

A gorgeous set of beloved classics are sure to be a delightful addition to her bookshelves. I’m always drawn to this Puffin in Bloom set, or if she’s a Jane Austen fan, you’ll want to get her these beauties. I’ve purchased this notebook set for myself and my mom for many years, along with these pencils and pens. The tasteful floral design is irresistible!

I did pick up one of these scented geraniums for my mother-in-law, as they’re a hit for annual flower lovers and are just so striking. I might have gotten this one for myself and for future gifts.

Obvious State is always a great choice too. I couldn’t love this mug more, these postcards just hit a major trend for sending mail and using them for wall art. You could always get a big print too, but this one especially!

If you’re looking to go out, wine flights are a fun date, take a walk along the waterfront, hit up your local book and coffee shops, get brunch a fancy little eatery tucked away in the city, stroll downtown, or give her a few peaceful hours for a long bath and a good book. Sometimes simple is best. Whatever you decide to do with your Mother’s Day, may it be a beautiful one.

Here’s to you mama’s!
