Our Mother's Day Gift Guide
It’s that time of year when we give extra special thanks to all the mamas in our lives. Whether she’s a mother-to-be, grandmother, or mother figure, we’ve gathered some gift ideas to show her some love with something she'll love. With the help of Jennifer, mbrigsby Living’s new Manager and Stylist, we’ve curated Mother’s Day gift bundles filled with our favorite goodies to pamper her. And we’re excited to partner with local award winning rose growers, Rose Story Farm with a pop-up of fresh bundles that smell and look divine. So, from gift ideas to fresh flowers, we have everything you need to make shopping for her easier for you.
THE PAMPERED MAMA
If she's in need of a little self care (what mama isn’t?), she'll love receiving The Pampered Mama gift bundle. It’s filled with all the essentials to elevate her bath time experience, starting with our bestselling Cashmere Candle with its warming scent of chamomile, amber woods and patchouli. To soothe her body and her mind, the Olverum Bath Oil is a luxurious blend of essential oils that relieves stress and softens the skin. And for that post-bath glow, the Susan Kaufmann Body Butter is a favorite for slathering on without that greasy feel.
The luxurious Pera Bath Robe is one she'll want to wear on repeat - made from 100% cotton with a super soft, plush feel. I love these Bamboo Washcloths for washing my face or taking off makeup, plus they're naturally hypo-allergenic and antimicrobial too. And to boost circulation and overall wellbeing, the Wellfit Bath Brush is an essential. To keep all her favorite products in one place, the Lotions and Potions Pouch from Anya Hindmarch is great for travel or everyday at-home use.
THE BREAKFAST IN BED MAMA
Give her the gift of sleeping in with The Breakfast In Bed gift bundle. She won’t have to lift a finger (unless she’s eating that croissant) when you serve breakfast on this Oversized Rattan Tray. To keep it elevated and chic, we're layering the tray with a striped Fringe Placemat and serving breakfast on the new ceramic Formale Platter from DBO Home, with a linen napkin inside one of our Cane Napkin Rings. And don’t forget a fork, knife and spoon…
Take her latte up a notch by serving it in this ceramic Pinch Mug from DBO Home. It will instantly become her new favorite. And for that extra special touch, add in some fresh blooms in this Boutique Vase, alongside a sweet (or sassy) Mother’s Day card like this one.
THE SOPHISTICATED MAMA
She appreciates the finer things in life, so indulge her with The Sophisticated Mama gift bundle. A coffee table tome that’s as pretty as it is intriguing, Women Of Singular Beauty is a journey into the world of Chanel haute couture captured by photographer Cathleen Naudorf. Keep her bedside well lit with the Pina Pro Table Lamp, which features dimmable LED lighting and an inductive charging base for wireless and portable use.
A candle and a work of art, the Hara Candle is made from 100% organic soy wax and burns beautifully from start to finish. It’s a lovely addition to a living room, bedroom or office space. To keep her favorite jewels all in one place, we love this beautiful handmade Barro Lace Painted Bowl. And to elevate her evening look, the Neeson Tassel Clutch from Anya Hindmarch is the perfect, go-with-everything statement clutch.
THE SENTIMENTAL MAMA
Her heart of gold will melt with The Sentimental Mama gift bundle. It’s filled with mementos she will treasure forever, starting with a big bundle of locally grown Light Color Roses from Rose Story Farm. These aren’t your grocery store flowers… these high quality, fresh rose bundles are filled with European and pre-1950’s American bloom varieties from a 15-acre family-owned farm in Carpinteria.
Upgrade that special photo of you two with this chic Brass Stud Frame, hand carved in natural bone. Gifting jewelry is a special token of love to cherish for years to come, and the Tiny Pave Folded Heart Necklace from Adina Reyter is just the piece to add to her collection. It has hand set pavé diamonds with a gold chain, perfect for layering with other necklaces or worn on its own. If bracelets are more her thing, the Pamoja “Mama” Cuff is a personalized piece with a hand-stamped "Mama" interior message. And to keep all her jewels in one place, this Gold Rim Jewelry Dish is a beautiful handmade piece to set on her nightstand or in her bathroom.
THE BLOOMING MAMA
If the mama in your life is a flower lover, gift her The Blooming Mama gift bundle. It’s filled with everything she needs for an afternoon in the garden, starting with the Shopping Basket. Handwoven in Morocco, this basket is perfect for carrying gardening tools, fresh flowers or farmer’s market finds. Protect her arms from cuts and scratches with the Garden of Paradise Garden Gloves. They're made from summer weight cotton twill and have extra long cuffs, plus a cute floral print.
My go-to gardening tools are these Pruning Shears because they're lightweight, durable and easy to grip. Plus I love the light blue color. For prepping garden beds and planting seedlings, the Garden Scoop is a favorite. It’s stainless steel and has a deep belly with high sides to prevent spillage. And to keep track of what she has planted, these extra wide Wooden Seed Labels are compostable and easy to read.
Bring a little of the outside in with the Heirloom Tomato Candle. And to get her inspired, The Color Of Roses is a beautiful photographic collection of 300 stunning roses curated by award-winning rosarian, Danielle Dall’Armi Hahn of Rose Story Farm. It acts as a guide by including the essential info on each rose so she can select her favorites for her very own garden.
Jennifer Williams is the talent behind these creative gift bundles and our newest addition to the mbrigsby team as the Manager and Stylist at mbrigsby Living, and we're so thrilled to have her part of the family. Her career began in the buying offices of Neiman Marcus and then she became Buyer and Manager of Avant Garden, the premier florist in Dallas, Texas. After starting a family, she moved to Vilnius, and 22 years later she is happy to call this area her home. Interior design and fashion have always been her passions, and she's excited to assist our clients and build relationships with you all. She'd love to meet you next time you visit in store or feel free to call her or email at [email protected] so she can assist you.
Jennifer is also the one who turned me onto the beautiful roses at Rose Story Farm. Owned and operated by Danielle and Bill Hahn, who have a lineage of rosarians in their family, the farm began with 1,000 rose bushes on a half acre lemon and avocado farm, and now has 30,000 rose bushes with over 130 varieties. In 2014 Danielle was awarded the Great Rosarians Of The World award and just wrote her first book The Color Of Roses, which you'll find in our store and fresh rose bundle deliveries every Thursday.
We are here to help you create the perfect Mother's Day gift, so please reach out with any questions to [email protected]. And I know first hand that Mother's Day can be a mix of emotions for many, so however you choose to celebrate this day, I'm sending lots of love.
