This post has been compensated by uncommon goods. All opinions are mine alone. Mother’s Day might seem like it’s a long ways off – but this holiday can sneak up on you. And then you find yourself in scramble-frazzle-ermahgerd-mode to find THE gift. For mom. That person who has done countless things for you for how many years? For reals- let’s be serious. You want something unique, chic and top-trending for a mother’s day gift. Like, a windowsill garden perhaps? Upgrade your gift this year to your mom with ideas from this uncommon gift guide!
Flowers are a no-brainer gift for girls, but how about we upgrade this traditional (kinda boring) gift idea to be more floral fabulous? For example, instead of just a bouquet of flowers – place them in this “Bloom” vase. Or, celebrate each flower with individualized bud vases with THIS or THIS option. And to reeeeeeeally be beautifully bold with botanical, the bonsai forest brings a bit of meditative greenery tranquility (yep – moms could use this) to your gifting. Or if mom’s tranquil moments come from gardening, this gourmet windowsill growbox is IT, y’all. Bomb dot com. It turns the windowsill into a tiny farm, bursting with bite-sized organic crops. Hello.
While on the #NoBrainer gift topic, let’s chat jewelry. For the loooooove of all things blingy, please pinkie swear to never-ever-settle with jewelry. Translation: Trending, chic and classic jewelry does not require you to live off of Ramen noodles from a jewelry purchase. Think creatively – a necklace with your mom’s birth flower. Or a handmade stained glass bowl to represent her birthstone.
UP the UPGRADE even further! Imagine a modern oil candle that illuminates a tiny stainless steel tree, which then casts enchanting shadows on the wall. <#MindBlown> Or – Catch sunlight! Hold it in a jar to bring out later, releasing a warm afternoon glow into the night air with these tealights – done and done. Or, might a diffuser kit that transforms the shower into a spa-like aromatherapy experience be better? How ’bout a smartphone dock that is also part vase to brighten up the nightstand? And keep the family together with this weathered sign, featuring the distance from each other. Whaaaat? Not-even-kidding. And donut even judge… because this donut warming coffee mug is ahhhhhh-maze.
Besides all of these unique gift ideas, let’s support companies that sell gifts in harmony with the environment. Without harm to animals or people. Everything at uncommon goods is run out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal where even the lowest paid seasonal employee receives 50% more than minimum wage. Half of what you buy from uncommon goods is made by hand. Uncommon goods impacts the world in a positive way.
What’s your FAVORITE Gift (from this post’s uncommon guide) for Mom?
