I know I say this a lot, but time is flying! Can you believe that Mother’s Day is just around the corner? If you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking about gift ideas!
When it comes to Mother’s Day I know plenty of people who want to make sure that they get their mother the perfect gift! Will she like something like these personalized custom coasters or will she prefer to get something like a massive bunch of flowers? If your mom is anything like mine, shopping for a gift can be daunting. My mom is not easy to shop for! She doesn’t really like perfume, chocolates, or spa-days, so that means a lot of the “traditional” gifts aren’t an option for her. In the past, I’ve gone onto online stores like GraysOnline and others that can stock a whole range of products suitable as gifts, it’s helped me some in the past but what if you’re wanting something extra special for an extra special day… It doesn’t help she’s also a little bit picky with perfume lotions, and other beauty products (I’ve learned from experience), so I like to avoid those types of gifts, too. I was speaking to a few of my friends to see what they’ve bought for their moms this year. One told me she had got a pair of Mulberry Silk Pajamas and the other had got her mom her favorite perfume and some flowers. These are all great gifts and it was great to get some ideas! I want to get something unique though. I know my mom is really picky with present so that leaves me looking for unique, thoughtful gift ideas – things like these custom photo moon lamp might just be the thing that she wants, but I want to make sure that my mom will love it, and as I said, she’s incredibly fussy.
This year, I’ve partnered with an incredible online boutique, Uncommon Goods, to give you some stylish, unique gift ideas for mom…or for yourself. In case you haven’t heard of them before, Uncommon Goods is a retailer from Brooklyn, who features unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment, without harm to animals or people. Most of the items they sell are made by hand, often in the USA. A significant number of their products also incorporates recycled or up-cycled materials.
If you needed another reason to feel good about buying from Uncommon Goods, it’s definitely their ‘Better to Give’ program. They donate $1 of every purchase to the non-profit of your choice. Since starting the program 12 years ago, they’ve donated over $1 Million to charities around the world.
What Did I Buy?
I ended up ordering a couple of “gifts” for myself…
What are you getting your mom this year? I hope these ideas help!
