Mother's Day is May 10, and it's coming up fast...here are a few gift suggestions to get you started.
From Ormonde Jayne, an engraved bottle (shown above left): "Ormonde Jayne will engrave your mother's initials onto the gold and glass stopper of our iconic Pure Parfum bottle and have it delivered in a beautiful shagreen box." The service takes about 5 working days (not including shipping), and a 50 ml bottle is £130; you can order online at the Ormonde Jayne website.
From Tom Ford for the Mom-on-the-go, a travel atomizer set in Tom Ford White Patchouli (above right): "This elegant, fluted gold case with white cabochon detail is the ultimate in luxurious purse accessories. Includes two gold-capped fragrance vials to ensure your favorite scent is just a spray away." $160 at Nordstrom.
Does Mom deserve a gift fit for a queen? Check out the Odeurs Royales collection from Cire Trudon: "...contains three exquisitely scented candles including Roi Soleil, Trianon and Mademoiselle de la Valliere. Presented in a beautiful gift box, each glass is hand-blown and embossed with the company's gold crest. The votive candles burn approx. 30 hours each. A perfect gift." $145 at Aedes.
Want to give Mom something homemade (and reasonably priced!), but don't have the time to do-it-yourself? Don't forget Etsy! Here are 2 citrus-y soaps worth checking out: Orange Marmalade soap, with sweet oranges, warm cinnamon and cloves (shown above left; $5.75), and Orange Zest soap, with mango, tangerine and spiced orange (shown above right; $5.25). Both can be found at the Dancing Zebra shop at Etsy.
We'll have more Mother's Day gift ideas later in the week...
