Mothers Day Gift Guide
Invitations from Paperless Post
If your mother throws gatherings from time-to-time, whether that be cocktail soirees, brunches in the garden, clubs, parties or more casual outings, simplify her life by giving the gift of Paperless Post.
We’re a huge fan of this site since they offer such a wide variety of choices for electronic cards and invitations. For example, they break their offerings down into categories to make it easy: birthdays, graduation, anniversaries, parties, cocktails, engagement, and beyond.
You can customize nearly everything, including font design, color and size, the backdrop, the envelope and the greeting itself. You can also include what you want in the invitation, even special notes about what to bring, directions and additional notes. You can keep the invitation list personal or public, depending on the event and your situation.
Find out more about their offerings, their templates and pricing over on Paperless Post.com. You can give a gift by signing her up for an account and filling her account with “coins” which allows her to create whatever she wants for her next event.
Golden State Fruit Chocolates
It’s hard to go wrong with chocolate. Golden State Fruit Chocolates offers a dozen berries coated in chocolate. Their giant California strawberries are hand-dipped, covered in real premium dark, milk and white chocolate and finished with drizzles and decorations.
They are packaged beautifully in their signature gift box and shipped in protective packaging with ice overnight to ensure a fresh arrival. There’s also pastel embelishments making it great for Easter, Mothers Day or a Springtime gift.
Each berry is delicately hand dipped and decorated in their kitchen – oh so yum! You can find them over on Amazon — chocolate is always a great choice for Mothers Day.
Oojra Oil Diffusers & Candles
If your mom loves scent, then the Oojra Oil Diffusers and candles would make great Mothers Day gifts. For example, we loved the Oojra Australian Eucalyptus Essential Oil Reed Diffuser Gift Set which comes with a glass bottle, Reed Sticks, and Natural Scented Long Lasting Fragrance Oil (3+ Months) for Aromatherapy and to fresher your air.
It is great for clearing and energizing the mind and body and is alcohol free, paraben free and phthalates free. The decorative glass bottle is great for office, kitchen & dining room, bedding & bath storage, or as home fragrance accessories. You can find it on Amazon.
Oojra also offers scented candles which make a great Mothers Day gift. You can get them in different fragrances, our favorite one being their Provence Lavender, which is a soft floral with minty herbal notes and a refreshing woody undertone to create a calm and balanced fragrance. Lavender is a calming, relaxing and comforting scent also known for being fresh and clean.
They tout a 75+ hour burn time and all candles are hand-poured and made with a vegan eco-friendly biodegradable soy wax formula,which means that it lasts longer than paraffin wax candles and many other wax blends. You can buy them over on Amazon as well.
