Mother's Day Gift Guide


In case you haven't already purchased a token of appreciation for the person who gave you life, here are a few suggestions of some Lille gifts in a wide range of prices that will warm the cockles of her heart and make her forget those troubled teen years...

1 - Cote Bastide Vanilla Tea Potpourri in Baroque Gift Box: All mothers love potpourri, but most of it is overly scented, dried up, and generally just sad. This crystal version looks just like candy and has the musky, rich scent of true vanilla, rather than the typical saccharine, cookie-like aroma peddled by air freshener companies. Bonus: they're on sale for $20 - that's 50% off!

2 - Vintage Bead Earrings by Hubris & Sophrosyne: At just $25, these beautiful baubles won't break the bank, but will show her you care. Plus, they're handmade right here in Portland, so you can send a little piece of your favorite city back to your hometown, wherever that may be.

3 - Crepe de Chine Slip by Only Hearts: The ultimate in luxury, a silk slip is something that just about every woman needs in her wardrobe, but sometimes these things fall by the wayside when we're busy caring for babies. If you want to treat the mother of your child to something really special, this is the way to go! At $110, it's a bargain.

4 - Cotton Seersucker Townhouse Robe by Matters of Leisure: This impeccably crafted robe is the perfect gift for the BIG thank yous. Case in point: my husband and I purchased one for his dear mother after she was kind enough to let us use her timeshare points for an upcoming vacation, saving us a bundle. At $218, it's a bit of a splurge, but you know she will feel really special!

5 - Gift Certificates for any denomination: It's a bit of a cop-out, but if you really have no idea what to get her, she will always appreciate a gift certificate, particularly if she's on a budget and hasn't been able to treat herself to something special for awhile. Think of it this way: you're giving her the gift of shopping, and what woman would turn that down?
