Mother's Day Gift Guide 2011

Mother's Day is May 8th

Are you like so many of the other sons and daughters out there who repeatedly tell us that Mother's Day is tricky because your mothers already have everything

If so, this Gift Guide is for you:

Mini Garden-in-a-Pail: Flowers are great, but what if you could give her a garden?  One that will last well past Mother's Day?  Just in time for Mother's Day, we're offering Mini Garden-in-a-Pail from Potting Shed Creations.  These beautifully packaged container gardens include a leak-proof US made galvanized pail and all the ingredients to grow exceptional flowers and herbs.  A perfect compliment to a windowsill or patio garden.  Choose from Heirloom Lavender or Organic Mixed Herb.

Garden-in-a-Bag:  Need something a little smaller?  Want to convey a sentiment of gratitude this Mother's Day?  Pick up a Garden-in-a-Bag instead.  These unique container gardens are a Potting Shed Creations original and perennial favorite.  Easily and conveniently grown right in the leak proof bag, just plant the enclosed packet of seed in the special blend of certified organic soil and organic coconut husk drainage chips, and water for a year-round garden indoors.  These Gardens-in-a-Bag say Happy Mother's Day on the front or Thank You (depending on the sentiment you want to convey) and will grow gorgeous zinnias.

Juliska Vase & Fresh Flowers:  If you prefer traditional flowers, stop in on Friday (5/6) or Saturday (5/7) and we'll have plenty of Juliska vases on hand, as well as loads of fresh flowers.  Pick your vase, pick your flowers, and create an arrangement on site that will be perfect for her.  Keep in mind that lots of our Juliska items do double duty:  the small tumblers also double as lovely bud vases, the Isabella Wine Carafe can hold a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and the ever popular tealights also turn over to function as bud vases as well.

Picture Frames:  We have an assortment of picture frames on hand that would make a special Mother's Day keepsake.  Don't have a picture to put in the frame?  Offer to take one on Mother's Day, when you're all together, with the idea that you'll have something to put in the frame after your celebration.

Mangiacotti Soaps & Lotions:  If she's got everything, then give her something that she can use up!  She'll love using up the soaps and lotions from Mangiacotti -- with their fresh scents and fun packaging, keeping clean (and who knows more about that??) has never been so lovely.

Candles:  Also along the lines of giving her something she can use, we have an array of candles that are a luxury to burn.  Pair a set of tapers with some personalized fingertip towels.  Or, the Thymes has a line of Offerings candles with their distinct signature scents and array of sentiments.  A Happiness or Love candle makes for a sweet gift for Mother's Day.

Vera Bradley Mother's Day Bracelet:  Is your mom a Vera Bradley fan?  Whether she has all the pieces or is just a Vera dabbler, we've got a bracelet that she has definitely not seen before.  For a limited time only, Vera Bradley is offering a fun, collection item bracelet, made of fashionable printed beads strung on elasticized cording.  It's a gift that fits every Vera Bradley fan's fancy and is available only through Mother's Day.

Mother's Day Cards:  Maybe gifts aren't your thing. Or maybe you've got an amazing mom, like mine, who actually gives us, her kids, gifts on Mother's Day (crazy, but true!).  Whether it is to go with your gift, or in place of a gift, we have a variety of Mother's Day cards in stock.  Mainly sweet (but with one or two silly options), even though she may have everything, she'll never have too many cards telling her how great she is.
