Mother’s Day will be here in two short weeks and its time to get that order in so it arrives on time! I want to support the small businesses that I follow and who need our help during these crazy times. What better time than to buy something for your mother than from someone you know either from on-line or within your community.
Celebrate your mother with a special present from a talented small business!
For those local to Darien, CT we have so many special shops to support. One of my favorites is Found, a gorgeous shop located in New Canaan,CT. Christine has an amazing eye and has created a shop of one-of-a-kind vintage pieces mixed with new items. She has just opened up her online store and you can also call the shop to ask about what she might have that would be right for your Mother. If you are not local she has beautiful small items that could be shipped easily – I love this Ivory and brass 5×7 Frame (add a picture or drawing to make it special), this beautiful blue and white ikat tray, or one of these chic clutches.
I am sure you have many such shops where you live that would happily package up something for you to pick up curbside, but you may not be local to your mother and need to have something shipped. That’s what gets tricky in today’s world… you need a little more time for it to get delivered on time.
I decided to take a stroll through my Instagram and see who and what makes me happy in my feed.
How about a lovely cotton robe? Then look no further than this Heidi Carey Floral Robe that comes in both blue and pink.
I am obsessed with my Naghedi tote and have had the good fortune to visit them in their showroom. Their bags are lightweight, washable, and uber chic! There may not be time to get a hand-painted tote from Corroon, but you could always slip a picture in an envelope and say it is coming soon…
A gorgeous bouquet of flowers from Ode a la Rose is a wonderful surprise!
Get her organized with one of the clear travel bags or makeup bags from truffle – they are always a hit!
Does she love pretty patterns, then check out the table linens and pareos from India Amory.
Or if your mother loves shoes… She will be excited about the classic styles at Margeaux. The hard part is picking the color!
I hope these gave you a few ideas and found something your mother will love. Have any favorites you want to share with everyone here? Please leave a comment – we would love to hear from you!
