Mother's Day Gift Guide
Mother's Day is right around the corner and we couldn't be more excited! With the kids and hubbies at home full time its been a little more hectic around our homes and we can probably assume the same with yours. So Mother's Day is the perfect excuse for us to kick up our feet, order breakfast in bed, and possibly lock ourselves in the bathroom for a little mommy alone time! Since everyone on the Vintage Society Team is a mom, we thought it would be fun to put a list of our favourite Mother's Day Gifts coming from all different stages of motherhood. We hope this adds some inspiration to your wish list or helps you find the perfect gift for mom!
We have also put together a special package of some of your fav items from our shop! It includes a garden hat, french soap, ticking towel and necklace! There is a savings of over $30. The best part is that we can directly ship it to your mom if you are not able to see her right now. We can even add a little note from you in the package!
Deb's Gift Picks
This year Deb has a few items that she is hoping make their way into her home! Her hubby is always surprising her with adventure and experience gifts, but sometimes he does buy more traditional options like jewelry and flowers!
This year however, she has something else in mind for a Mother's Day gift! A Dyson Supersonic hair dryer! She has such thick hair and it always seems to take so long to dry it! She also finds that what she currently uses seems to be damaging her hair so she has been letting it air dry more often which then results in longer styling time after! A few of her girlfriends have they Dyson Supersonic and all say it is totally worth the money! Anything to help save time usually is right?!
Deb also loves anything that has a practical use and looks good as home decor! Our French Market baskets are one of her main "go to's" at home! These beautiful woven bags come in many different styles and sizes over in the Shop! They are incredibly strong and can hold so much! Plus, they look adorable with any outfit and cute hung up in your home! Deb carried the double strap basket with her everywhere in France last summer! So stylish and practical!
Deb is also on the hunt for some stacking baskets or vintage crates for the house right now. You can never have to many textures in your home and she loves adding both of these items to mix things up! Here are a few options that she loves and is thinking about asking her husband for!
Britt's Gift Picks
So Britt is going the nerdy route with her Mother's Day gifts pick! Now we all say we don't want cleaning items as gifts but eventually we reach an age when it becomes not accepted but WANTED!
First up on Britt's list is the DYSON V11 Vacuum. Dyson vacuums were on Britt's wedding registry and she has always had a cordless vacuum since that day! Honestly no vacuum can even compare to Dyson! Britt's husband actually was suggesting they upgrade their Dyson when they reached out and offered to send her a new one! The new V11 is beyond amazing! I'm sure no mom would be upset receiving this cleaning gadget for Mother's Day!
Second on Britt's Mother's Day Gift List would be anything LINEN! Linen towels, linen aprons! When towels and aprons look as cute as the ones we carry in THE SHOP who wouldn't want to get one of these! The best part is that they are practical and useful but they look pretty displayed around the house as well!
As you may know Britt is slightly obsessed with Lattes! So espresso beans are always a treat. Britt loves trying new beans and is always looking for a bean that makes the best Crema! So if your a latte or tea lover then this is also a great easy gift to add to the list! Some of the beans that Britt loves are Phil & Sebastian Beans and Bagel Company Beans.
Ali's Gift Picks
As a new mom to one little baby, Ali's Mother's Day gifts look a little different than Deb and Britt's. Since her baby can't make her breakfast in bed, or even read her wish list, it's left up to her husband to pick up the slack. That being said, Ali isn't one for extravagant gifts, she prefers practical items that she can use every day, like the Vintage Brass Spray Bottle for her plants. You can grab one for yourself in The Shop.
Fun Fact, Ali is our resident crazy plant lady! Every year she plants a massive garden that's absolution stunning! Ali started her seeds back in February, and she already has her garden all planned out with this FREE Downloadable Garden Supply Check list and Layout Plan.
Aside from being practical, Ali also really enjoys sentimental gift ideas. For her first mothers day she received a little pendant "MAMA" necklace with her charms of her daughters initials. So sweet! This year she asked for something a little different, she wanted a mini mommy and me photo shoot. Such a cute idea! It's easy to purchase a gift voucher from a local photographer that fits in a card so you still have something to gift on Mother's Day. That way it can be scheduled whenever she wants and it will leave her with so many great memories.
Although breakfast in bed would be a nice touch! We have plenty of Mother's Day inspired brunch ideas like this easy French Crepes recipe!
Mother's Day has become one of Michelles favourte days of the year, even topping her birthday! Michelle's husband and girls go all out and spoil her every year. She gets her favourite Feta and Spinach Quiche breakfast in bed and a free day of the girls doing what she wants them to do, who wouldn't love that?!
One of Michelles' favourite Mother's Day gifts was her outdoor rocking chair. She only has one complaint, if she sits in it, no yard work gets done! I guess you win some you lose some.
This year Michelle has her eyes set on another cute Mother's Day gift to get her outdoors. She has been eyeing up the garden hat for some time now! You see, when Michelle does feel motivated to get some yard work done, she always ends up with a bright red burn on the back of her neck. Michelle's skin is fair and sensitive so she likes to keep herself protected from the sun while still looking cute. You can also get your hard working Mama a cute Garden Hat from our Shop!
Whether you are a new mom, or mom of teenagers or grown kids, take the time to celebrate you! Being a mom is the most challenging, rewarding, heartbreaking and joyful thing you will ever do in your life and without a doubt the best thing you will do in your lifetime.
