This weekend we celebrate those with the most important job in the world...MOTHERS! And to make life a little easier (after all, you've still got vacuuming to do, last-minute cards to buy, and Sunday brunch to worry about), we've listed a few gift ideas here.
For the ultimate in elegant sweets, pick up a "jewel box" of Louis Sherry chocolates. Handcrafted in NYC in the French tradition, these decadent treats come packaged in a variety of sizes and pastel-colored tins. And--just in case Mother's Day will be celebrated at someone else's house--show up with one of these and you'll definitely win the prize for most gorgeous hostess gift.
Louis Sherry Chocolates: $8.50-$68.00
Chavez for Charity creates beautiful, colorful jewelry with a purpose: for every item sold, they donate a percentage of profits to an array of amazing charities, such as Best Friends Animal Society, Matthew Shepard Foundation, and Water.org. For a fun, chunky look, get Mom 2-3 sets and have her stack 'em high!
Chavez for Charity Bracelets (set of 5): $58.
The mad digging-for-keys at the bottom of your purse is over, thanks to these key chains made from vintage flatware! Handles are bent to hang perfectly on a handbag. Just slip it on the purse flap (with keys facing inward), and the result is a lovely peep of engraved silver. Sizes and patterns vary. A staff favorite!
Vintage flatware key chains: $25
Moms are royalty, so they should sleep like a princess! This eye mask is created with 100% silk, inside and out; generously sized to filter light and protect the delicate eye area. Hand sewn with soft-stretch elastic and light as a feather for the beauty sleep that Mom deserves.
Silk Eye Mask: $48
For moms who appreciate a modern, spa-like look, we've got you covered--quite chicly at that! The supersoft "Pousada" robe by Abyss & Habidecor is made in Portugal from the finest 100% Egyptian cotton in a relaxed European waffle texture design. Incredibly lightweight, comfortably luxurious.
