For Her

For us, each day is Mother’s Day, and we constantly give back and show appreciation to the people who gave us life and love.
But for those who want to show their moms (or any special woman) extra TLC on May 12th, we’ve compiled a few ideas about gifts, the new brunch, invitations + stationery, and handmade presents.
Enjoy! Let us know what special activities you’ll be doing next Sunday with a comment below.

mother's day gifts

∞ 1. For the mom that appreciates art, this trendy and uplifting print will become an instant favorite. 2. Baking and cooking becomes ten times more fun with these adorable measuring cups. 3. If she loves flowers (and who doesn’t?) a porcelain flower vase will brighten up any space. 4. Delicate jewelry is always a good call, and this classic bracelet will go with anything. ∞

pancake party

∞ Instead of a brunch, have a pancake party. Include add-ins (berries, chocolate chips, spices, lemon zest) and a couple of classic toppings (maple syrup, chocolate sauce, whipped cream), and get everyone involved.  Serve stacks on mini cake platters and keep plenty of colorful napkins on hand. *Pictured pancake is a blueberry/peach combo topped with poppy seed, whipped cream and maple syrup. ∞

stationery

Download and print this stunning stationery set (it’s free) and fill the blank insides with quotes, pictures, and sentiments of love. Remember, the best gift you can give is love, and it’s important to express that. ∞

handmade gifts

∞ Handmade gifts are just as sweet to receive as store-bought ones. We chose four DIY’s we’ve featured that would make great presents, including a necklacepaper circles, handmade sugarcubes, and versatile hair ties. ∞
