For Mom: A Mother's Day Gift Guide...

Mother's Day is coming up, and in anticipation I have a few special posts for you guys that will touch on the subject of Motherhood throughout the week. Although I am not a mother myself, I have a lot of experience in the gift giving category as an aunt, sister, friend and daughter. I feel like even if you are shopping for a new mom, it is important to keep mom in mind and not be tempted to shop for the baby. I am all about anything that is going to pamper, or encourage 'me' time. I also like to buy things that might be considered splurges for everyday, but are totally manageable on their own as a gift. The above gift guide is full of things that in my opinion improve quality of life. Everything represented goes a little deeper than the object itself it's an experience, a memory, a scent, that is sure to tell mom to relax and enjoy the day. 

1. Capri Blue Constellation Candle — these candles have a long burn time and smell up the whole room, or bathroom ;)

2. Artemis Hair Pin — jewelry is always a good idea, but I am in love with this amazing hair pin. So unique!

3. Ceramic Carved Planter — I never buy ceramics for myself, which is exactly why I fee like they make the perfect gift. These beauties are by a local Denver maker, Veak Ceramics. Add a succulent or cacti for that extra something.

4. Jurlique Hand Cream — I gave all the moms in my life hand cream last year. It's such a simple luxury, but also so important. The rose scent is my favorite!

5. Artifact Uprising Photobook — or any of the AU products. They are are also a LOCAL company {Denver shout out} and I love their philosophy that is "inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible." If you haven't heard of them I strongly encourage you to check them out!
