    AT HOME SPA

    Head over to one of the Mama Jeans locations and browse their Wellness & Body Care department to pick out lotions, face masks, bubbles baths, essential oils, etc that your mom would love. Take a look at their collection of Pacifica products – they offer roll-on and bottles of perfumes, smell good lotions and they are delightful.

     

    VINTAGE LOVE

    A Cricket in the House has some of the funnest, beautifully selected vintage decor in the area.  Jewelry, tea cups, lamps, purses, throws, wine glass sets…I could continue but you get the idea. Plus, every time I’ve been there they are playing awesome music and the owners are so nice. Double win.

     

    CHOCOLATE TASTING KIT

    I mean, it’s chocolate. Like, you kinda can’t go wrong. Unless your mom doesn’t like chocolate, or is a dog that miraculously gave birth to a human.
    Available at Askinosie Chocolate for $32.

     

    SHOES

    Yeah, so I’m not suggesting a sweet pair of pumps here. But a gift card to Fleet Feet would be really sweet for an athletic mom, or a mom wanting to improve her health. They have one of the best selections of trail, road, hiking, and walking shoes I’ve seen. Only the best on the market! Plus, you can have one of their staff members analyze your stride to make sure you’re getting the right shoe for YOU. And yes, this Fleet Feet is locally owned and operated.

     

    FOODS ON YOU

    Make her a nice meal OR take her out for some dinner at an amazing local restaurant. Our top pick’s include: Cafe Cusco, Avanzares, Gilardi’s, Van Gogh’s Eeterie, and maybe a little dessert from Maes Gelateria.

     

    3 DYI GIFT IDEAS

    LAVENDER SUGAR SCRUB

    Ingredients
    1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar – brown or white
    1/2 Cup Organic Coconut Oil
    1/4 Cup (or about 25 drops) of Lavender essential oil
    Mason Jar
    Combine all ingredients, stir well and put into a mason jar.

    PAINTED TIN CAN FLOWERS

    Easy schmeasy and super inexpensive. Just spray paint some tin cans and put some pretty flowers in them. Sweet and pretty!

    FLOWER CHANDELIER

    A beautiful and fun way to display fresh flowers, and a great way for them to dry!
    You’ll need wreath form, pliers, floral wire or strong thread, paint or fabric to wrap the wreath.
    Trim the flowers at different lengths, wrap the stems with floral wire or thread and hang them on the wreath form. Go back and forth between longer and shorter flowers. Once you’ve finished hanging the flowers on the wreath, wrap the form with pretty fabric (if you’re using paint, paint the form BEFORE wrapping it with the flowers). Easy and lovely!
