Moms are givers most of the time, and since Mother’s day is approaching, this is the perfect time to ‘give back’ to your mom and show some appreciation with a meaningful gift. This is also the perfect time, especially in regards with the current situation, to support a small business as well. When buying from a small business, you can expect the gift will be crafted with special attention, which is a perfect way to show your love and appreciation for such a special person in your life.
When choosing a gift, we definitely recommend taking into consideration what kind of experience your mom will enjoy. So, here’s a list of our gifting recommendations for all moms to enjoy:
For the mom who loves relaxation:
A scented candle is a perfect addition to your mom’s relaxing bubble bath. Merchants of Beauty is a candle brand that is elevating the candle experience with their New York inspired scents, designs and colors. Founder, Ava Ghiotti designs the perfect modern candles that evoke the very specific New York vibes like the ‘ 4 am New York City’ candle and ‘Smells Like Success’. Our favorite is ‘3,2,1 Rocket’ with strong notes of amber evoking feelings of cosmic transportation – because NYC is out of this world, just like your mom!
You can choose and order your candle here. Merchants of Beauty can wrap it as a gift and you can even send a personalized note with your candle!
For the mom who has a sweet tooth:
Getting your mom some Subarz as a gift is a real treat! But, what are Subarz? It’s a baked good, similar to biscotti, but sweeter and softer. They’re created in 2016 by founder Daphne Subar, and are home-made in small batches and individually cut to serve. Daphne at Subarz offers the best home-baked experience with her large offering of ‘barz’ with incredible blends of flavors, such as: Luscious Lavander, Spiced fig and the incredible Salted Caramel Apricot Subarz. They even offer gluten-free options in all the flavors as well.
You can order your Subarz here, with a hand wrapped bow and a personalized note to your mom.
For the mom who is a literal goddess:
