I got my mom something pretty cool this year, but I keep running across items that would be wonderful for moms (or anybody!) who needs a little cheer right now. I know it’s supposed to be a day just for your mom, but I’m a big supporter of the “It Takes a Village” style of parenting, and I feel like there are a lot of people out there who deserve to be celebrated for all the mothering they do.
But also, some of this stuff is awesome. If you need a treat… well, I won’t tell if you don’t.
The Mother’s Day Divine Set: For $40 ($38 with coupon code MOM… with free shipping!) you’ll get an 8-piece assortment of truffles, a heart-shaped chocolate bar, a dark chocolate bar (with gold flakes!) and 6 macarons. Separately from Chocomize, the value of this box is around $51, so this coupon makes this a nice little discount. If you’re unfamiliar with Chocomize, you can build a custom chocolate bar with a variety of toppings (including gummy bears, Pop Rocks, pepper, crystallized rose petals, bacon and more!)
Rainbow Honey Mother’s Day Mystery Bag: Rainbow Honey is an adorable indie brand of cosmetics. Their usual surprise bag gets positive reviews all over the internet, so I’m guessing their Mother’s Day bundle will be well-loved. For $50, it includes 3 nail polishes, a perfume rollerball, a nail care set, lip care treatment set, full size body lotion and three cakepops. You can choose one of two all-new scents for the bundle. Both are floral with tea notes. Hurry! The price goes up on 5/2/15!
Morgan Taylor Ruffle Trim Floral Wrap and Chemise: I’m a big believer in robes as Mother’s Day gifts. It’s practical, but a little luxurious. A lot of satiny robes veer off in the Frederick’s of Hollywood look, but this one manages to be sweet. Morgan Taylor offers a few styles in plus sizes, as well.
Sunfold Printing Kit: Okay, this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Ever made a sun print? This paint lets you make a sun print on fabric. This kit is intended to produce a tie-dye like effect in minutes, but you can easily use it to do botanical prints or anything you like!
Aquafarm: This is one of the coolest things to come out of Kickstarter because it’s so simple! Harness the power of hydroponics and fish turds to grow indoor veggies or herbs.
