Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Brunches and spa days always make great gifts, but it’s also nice to wow her with something more unexpected. To make sure you’re prepared on Sunday, May 9, here’s a quick guide for interesting items to celebrate motherhood and show your gratitude.
Chic & Cuddly
Miami-based lifestyle collection Sunday Citizen makes some of the coziest loungewear and bed and bath linens. Its sustainable, washable materials such as bamboo, silk and an eco blend from recycled water bottles are perfect for busy moms. Pictured here, the crystal weighted blanket is filled with thousands of pieces of amethyst and clear and rose quartz.
Mom can channel her inner-JLo with Tonal’s home, digital weightlifting system. Its minimal design mounts to walls like a flatscreen tv and uses electromagnetic technology to create resistance up to 200 pounds. Try it at Tonal’s Aventura showroom and its partnering Nordstroms in Coral Gables, Aventura, Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton.
A bottle of wine’s fine, but why not give her something that lasts longer like a wine class? Virginia Philip, South Florida’s most famous female master sommelier, regularly shares her deep knowledge of the grape at her namesake shop and academy in Palm Beach. On May 14, she explores the wines of Burgundy.
If mom misses old-fashioned stores, she’ll love receiving something from the Breakers resort’s new Main Street boutique. It’s fun to poke around sections for greeting cards, pet needs, embroidered tea towels and tabletop wares like this adorable, lettuce-themed collection by Palm Beach potter Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch. The cute café serves doughnuts to sandwiches.
Nothing says spring style like Mark Cross’s Madeline straw basket bag in two sizes. Made with woven pressed palm leaves, it’s trimmed in tumbled grain calfskin in bone, lilac or luggage, a tan tone. Signature decoration includes a red lining and gold logo. Twenty percent of proceeds for accessories purchased through May 6 benefit Baby2Baby.
