Celebrating Mothers

Coming up! Mother’s Day in the US on Sunday May 10th.

People who know me well know that I am more into giving things than receiving. But for Mother’s day even I would accept a little thing as long as it is simple, preferably handmade and/or Swedish! Here are a few splendid things to give (or get!) for Mother’s day:

To die for! (Ask my friend Krissy who just received a sample box). The Seattle based chocolate maker, Fran’s Chocolates, offers these award-winning Gray and Smoked Salt Caramels. All caramels are made with organic ingredients. 

Swedish native Lotta Helleberg has a store on Etsy called Inleaf. Her handmade sachets in natural linen (above with Geranium print) are so lovely and filled with only dried organic lavender buds.  Sold in sets of 2. Size: 4.5″ x 4.5″. Price $20.

Hard not to smile when you open your linen drawer and is being greeted by this happy fern sachet, also by Lotta.

Also from Etsy is the store, Lulu La Rue. They craft teeny tiny sterling silver necklaces with pendants. Being a proud owner of a similar peace pendant myself given to me by my friend Stacey, I think the message needs to be spread! The price for this organic peace sign necklace is $28.

A bud vase. The perfect little vase next to your bed. Yet another Etsy seller, MudPuppy, is behind this hand crafted white ceramic vase with a cherry wood saucer. Out of this world lovely when the actual flowers are hand picked by small little hands. Price: $40.

I like to have things organized and I do a lot of writing, so a large set of same colored pencils put in a nice cup or vase makes me totally happy. Low tech. High style. These from See Jane Work are perfect. There are 12 pencils in one set and they come in several nice colors. 3 packages of the Tiffany blue please! The price for one set is $7.

I hope you found some of these gift ideas helpful!
