Baristanet Mother’s Day Gift Guide

With Mother’s Day approaching on May 14th, it’s time to make the extraordinary moms in your life feel extra special. From the fashionista to the social butterfly to the creative traveler, we’ve selected a few gifts she will love.

Beaded Bracelets

For the mom that loves to accessorize, beaded bracelets from Dot Reeder make a fabulous gift. Ranging from various stones such as black onyx, black lava, cracked blue agate, and matte grey agate, the stretch fit bracelets come as one long wrap bracelet or in a set of three. The simply and pretty bracelets are completed with a gold accent with rhinestones or a leather tassel. For some serious arm candy, pair the bracelets with a watch.

Printed Scarves

The printed scarves from Madeline are perfect for the mom who enjoys traveling, fashion and the beach. Out of all the floral and striped designs, the elephant and aztec patterned scarf with navy and yellow tassels is our favorite. The long wrap around scarf adds a trendy and warm layer to an outfit (great for the plane) and can also double as a sarong. With so many ways to wear and tie a scarf, you really can’t go wrong with this classic gift.

Sugar Cubes

For the lady that loves to host, a floral sugar cube set from Pink Bungalow is adorable and fun. A quirky take on sugar, these whimsical cubes make the simple pleasures in life, like a cup of tea or coffee, extra special and sweet. Complete the gift with a set of tea cups or mugs and make tea time or her coffee break wonderful.

Sugar Whipped Soap

For the lady that’s all about her skin routine, give her the spa treatment (from the comfort of her home) with Sugar Whipped Soap from That Little Black Dress. The all natural Goddess fresh fig scented soap exfoliates and cleanses skin, leaving you feeling soft and smooth. A jar goes a long way!

Paint Night

After a yummy brunch with Mom on Mother’s Day, surprise her with an afternoon of wine and painting at Art e Vino. You’ll have a fun time showing off your artistic skills as the instructor tells you step by step on how to create the lovely, “Colorful Bouquet” painting. The BYOB class is from 3:30pm-6pm and will definitely be a Mother’s Day she will never forget. Make sure you book ahead of time to reserve your seats, or purchase a gift certificate for her to use in the future.
