Because Mom Deserves the Best: Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Let’s get real for a sec. What Mom really wants is to see you, spend time with your family, and maybe get a little spoiled. Flying across the country can’t always happen, though, so these ideas are the next best thing and will still make her feel like she’s special. Gift your Mom with something that tells a story, creates impact, or makes her feel good. She’ll immediately move you to her favorites list. Trust us.

Encourage Her Keepsake Habit

These petite blue and white boxes are a sweet tabletop spot to keep jewelry or trinkets. Each one is hand painted in Fez’s signature colors with a delicate silver trim. They are one-of-a-kind pieces (just like Mom!).

Make an Impact

Mom will love that this pillow is made from a Huipil textile that gives back to female artisans in Guatemala. Huipils are handmade blouses worn by indigenous women in Latin America on a backstrap loom. Each one is unique and bears the markings of the maker’s regional colors, symbols of her surrounding environment, as well as her personal taste for fashion.

Keep It Zipped Up

This zipper pouch is a versatile and practical gift made from a one-of-a-kind indigo textile from Burkina Faso. It fits perfectly into any Mom’s purse, whether she’s at the stage of carrying diaper cream, magic tricks, or a cell phone for your late-night calls. Even better? Get yourself a matching pouch because you’re so at the point where it’s OK to be twinsies with your Mom.

Provide a Place for Memories

A bone inlay box is the sweetest and most thoughtful place to keep memories from falling into the back of drawers or lost in closets. Fill it with black and white photos of family members, paper ephemera from a special trip you took together, or baby keepsakes from her grand-children. Bonus points if you include just a sonogram and announce that you’re expecting!

Save Time for Tea

Our block print napkin sets are a multi-generational favorite. They’re a pretty detail for a feminine tablescape and the patterns stand out by themselves or blend together mixed and matched for a more eclectic look. Either way, Mom will be impressed that they are handmade by a family of artisans in Rajasthan, India.

Support a Women Owned Business

These baskets are handwoven by a group of women in Zimbabwe. Each one is unique in its design, and showcases natural elements and patterns found in the village where they live. The story behind this weaving group is special, and any lady in your life will appreciate that these baskets are made with love.

Keep Her Warm

To say that these luxurious alpaca blankets are the best gift she’ll ever receive is an understatement. This throw is softer than cashmere, hypoallergenic and made in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. It also doubles as a chic travel wrap for chilly airplanes. Mom won’t put it down!

Up Her Decor Game

If the lady in your life is looking for a secret styling weapon to add to her entry table, bookshelf, or bedside, then look no further. These glass bead strands are made by a fair trade cooperative of women in Ghana using locally sourced and recycled glass. They look incredibly chic casually gracing a stack of books or laying neatly in a tray.
