Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

By Isabel Kallman

Mothers_Day_SuperGran.jpgDo you really shop for your own gift? Or, are you here looking for your own mother and the grandmas in your kids’ lives?

Well, if you’re like us, we’re on the hunt for Grandma. As such, here are some ideas for you. Now, beware you need to act fast as Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away.

Here are some ideas:

Personalized Stationery

Who doesn’t love stationery? Personalized stationery, even better. Some special choices made for you.

These silk clutches are just scene-stealers. I have the first one and wow, the compliments just don’t stop.

Custom Silhouettes

We’ve been longtime fans of custom silhouettes having touted them as ideas before. Honestly, I don’t think you can have too many silhouettes of kids especially since they change so quickly. This one below is cut out of a green leaf. I think a collection of silhouettes comprised of different textures is such a great idea. Need to get to that myself.

If you can afford it, you should be splurging on mama. Just sayin’.

The Kindle 2. We’ve tried it and we love it. It’s a PERFECT, though pricey gift.

Silhouettes in different textures–so brilliant! I’m also sure great grandma would love the green on that jewlery box.
