CALL UR “MOM” - THE SUNDAY ISSUE MOTHER’S DAY 2019 GIFT GUIDE
In our little corner of the world, the title of MOM isn’t just reserved for the woman who gave us life. On Mother’s Day we like to celebrate all of the mother figures in our lives; the grandma who held us in a bear hug when we had our first heartbreak, the sister who brought us chicken soup when we were too sick to place a Seamless order, the father who is also a mother, and a friend, and a mentor, the best friend who still takes our midnight calls and gives such good advice they deserve a damn copay.
To those who make our lives a little better, brighter and safer, here are some small tokens of our undying love, affection and gratitude.
“Moms” are saints and deserve the best. So, when you see your mom walking around the house in a Buffalo Bills sweatshirt and coffee-stained sweatpants it’s a divine sign she needs to be treated like the deity she is. The Sunday Forever Silky Kimono comes in Nude Pink or Black, Long or Short and has Mary Poppins-like bottomless pockets to hold tissues, lip balm, toys, snacks, gum, juice boxes, et al. And you can custom embroider it with her name: “Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom-MY! Momma! Lois!”(kidding - up to 12 characters only) .
Oprah says the greatest gift is the gift of time (Super Soul Conversations podcast - give it a listen), so why not give that mother-figure in your life a few hours of quiet time to read a book, sip a glass of wine and just unwind. The Book Wine Club is a multi-city book club that recently launched a monthly book and wine-themed subscription service. Each month “Mom” will receive a beautifully-wrapped book, a wine-themed gift plus a personalized note for that special book worm/oenophile in your life. Available in 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.
Summer is here. Remember when you were a kid running around the pool or beach and your mom lovingly reapplied your sunblock every 90 minutes? Love means never having to say “sunburn” and now it’s time to repay the favor with the gift of the chicest straw hat ever. This Jenni Kayne treasure is LA-meets-Tulum-meets-Nashville, which means this hat can cover a lot of ground (and a lot of harmful UVA & UVB rays).
You may live far from the person you love, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be close to their hearts. Juniper Print Shop and Framebridge make it so easy to print and frame family pictures or large-scale art prints. Send a special piece from you to “Mom,” one she can hang in her room, reading nook or foyer; one that will make her smile and think of how much she is loved by you. Purchase a print at Juniper Print Shop and download. Upload the file to Framebridge, select frame, size and mat options and add a personalized note.
“Mom” needs more than a “Calgon Take Me Away” bath. She needs a full-on tropical vacation. Our best-selling, cult-favorite Tanlines candle has been known to simulate the summer beach vacation experience. It smells like summer and suntans. When lit she’ll feel like she’s lounging on the lanai, umbrella drink in-hand, watching the sunset while Tom Hardy fans her with giant palm leaves. Don’t you want to be Mom’s favorite child? This
