TABLETOP & HOUSEWARES

Indigo Home Shop is one of my go-to resources for gift giving. Everything is handmade and painted by owner Dana Mahnke, and she includes a handwritten note (with your message) in each order. Gift ideas include a Chinoiserie planter, Chinoiserie mugs, and any of her beautiful vegetables. Currently listed are radishes and peas, but she also makes carrots, onions, asparagus, and more. I have one of each, and they make a beautiful collection! Email Dana for additional details.
Williams Sonoma has created a gift guide for Mother’s Day with some wonderful ideas. Don’t forget to take advantage of the 20% off and free shipping! (Promo Code = APRIL)
The new Vintage Etched Glassware Collection from Williams Sonoma is stunning. It has the look of William Yeoward, but it is perfect for everyday. Everything from Williams Sonoma is currently 20% off and shipping is free, so I bought the water goblets, tumblers, high balls, and old fashioned glasses.
I am smitten with the new pink collection of Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch. Any of her lettuce ware (which is also available in green and white) would make a wonderful gift.
For gardeners, here are some of the prettiest watering cans and misters.
Floris makes the loveliest room fragrances, and the Peony & Rose smells like heaven!
This darling set of four rattan and shell coasters makes a chic gift.
Treat Mom to some new furniture with this graceful and feminine sofa from Caitlin Wilson… I am obsessed!
There is nothing more luxurious than a cashmere throw.
Pottery Barn currently has some great napkins that are currently on sale… Or choose something from their Lilly Pulitzer collection. And you won’t want to miss the woven drink ware, inspired by traditional pieces from 1920s Southeast Asia.
The Duchess of Windsor loved pug pillows, and you can find fabulous reproductions here!
Celebrate Palm Beach style year round with designer Amanda Lindroth’s beautiful home goods collection.
Limoges and Halcyon Days boxes are always a great gift idea, and I enjoy searching eBay for vintage options. Last year for my Mom, I bought a Halcyon Days Mother’s Day box dated with the year I was born. Click here to see if your birth year is available.
Of course nothing puts a smile on one’s face like a beautiful delivery of fresh flowers.
FASHION & ACCESSORIES
Gucci’s iconic Flora print was originally created for Princess Grace of Monaco, and it remains strong today. There is a lovely collection of Flora available this spring including the classic scarf, loafers, blouse, and tote. I also love this classic Gucci duffle.
Scrunchies have made a comeback, so why not make it Hermes? There are some lovely and inexpensive options for Hermes scrunchies here.
Another way to get the look of Hermes for less is with these elegant hand-rolled silk scarves under $30 each! I ordered three of them, and they are just as beautiful as the real deal.
Needlepoint loafers are chic yet comfy, and always appreciated.
This cheeky needlepoint luggage tag is certain to make Mom laugh!
Every lady needs a classic vanity case.
A cardigan is a classic wardrobe staple, and you can add a monogram for just $8.
I splurged and bought myself this Ferragamo wicker bag for spring (get 10% off your first purchase with code 10FIRST). Wicker, rattan, and bamboo bags are the perfect spring and summer accessory, and additional options can be found here, here, here, here, and here.
Tory Burch’s Lee Radziwill satchels bring back classic style. Introduced last season, new styles sell out very quickly!
I love giving these monogrammed jewelry travel cases as gifts, and I personally own one in each size. They are also perfect for organizing your jewelry at home.
This is such a pretty and personalized eyeglass case! Double check the dates for delivery in time for Mother’s Day…
I went an entire year with horrible headaches refusing to believe I needed reading glasses. But then I found these super inexpensive retro chic reading glasses… They come in a pack of three, and I have them scattered all about the house. My Mom loves the nostalgia of them too!
This patchwork Lilly Pulitzer maxi dress channels vintage Lilly, and I love the pearl embellishment.
Jewelry from the Elizabeth Locke collection is destined to become an heirloom treasure. I particularly love her signature gold bee earrings, perfect for the Queen Bee of your family. And you can tour Elizabeth’s exquisite home here.
Would you believe that First Ladies Jackie Kennedy and Barbara Bush wore faux pearls? Their signature strands were commissioned by Kenneth Jay Lane, and you can get exact copies of Jackie’s here or here and Barbara’s here or here.
And speaking of faux pearls, these “diamond” and pearl ribbon earrings are so beautiful… and realistic!
Engrave the names of Mom’s children or grandchildren on this inexpensive cuff bracelet with diamond accents.
This charging bracelet ensures your iPhone stays fully charged! Especially helpful for travel…
These earrings are a tropical delight!
And you cannot go wrong with anything from the Lisi Lerch jewelry collection.
Lady Primrose products always make a beautiful gift. In 1990, The Lanesborough, London’s Finest Hotel, Commissioned Lady Primrose to create a line of bath products. Working with a French perfumer and an English toiletry house, Lady Primrose researched archival recipes dating back to 1677. Their research produced Lady Primrose’s signature fragrance, Tryst (my favorite!) I love the beautifully packaged silk powder and (refillable) body creme.
Treat your Queen Bee to a scrumptious Crème Brulee Honey Bath.
Rose quartz is known as a beautifying and healing stone that helps ease tension, stress, and anxiety. This natural crystal roller has a small stone that you roll under your eyes to help smooth fine lines, puffiness, and wrinkles. It feels wonderful, plus it is pretty too!
Patricia also loves Claus Porto Madrigal Water Lily Soap, which smells heavenly and has become a favorite of mine as well.
One of my favorite gifts to give is this refillable Estee Lauder compact. Take it to your local engraver and have Mom’s initials or a special date hand-engraved. It makes a cherished gift.
TERRY Baume de Rose Lip Care has become a cult favorite, and it always makes a lovely gift!
Of course perfume is always a classic gift for Mother’s Day, and you can find my favorites here, here, here, and here. My Grandmother and Mother have both worn this as their signature scent since the 1980s.
My favorite line of cosmetics is 100% Pure. If you are trying to eliminate harmful toxins from your skin care routine, 100% Pure is the perfect solution. And as an added bonus, the packaging is so beautiful! I use their lip glaze, fruit pigmented blush, and fruit pigmented healthy foundation.
