In case you didn’t realize it, Mother’s Day is just a week and a half away on Sunday, May 8! Although we’ll be celebrating the occasion with my mom while we’re at the beach next week, I couldn’t help but think about a few alternative ideas that are fit for moms everywhere as we inch closer to the ultra-sweet maternal holiday.
To help get your creative juices flowing, I partnered up with Memento & Muse founder, Melinda McKee, to share a giftable box worthy of the main lady in your life. I had the chance to peek inside the Memento & Muse ‘Day Brightener’ box, and all I can say is this: prepare to have your day brightened!
Again, I love that this box is called the ‘Day Brightener’ because there’s really no better way to describe it. Even before I actually opened the box itself, my mood was lifted tenfold because of the pretty ribbon detailing, dried flower bundle and custom tags on the outside. But then I tore into the goodies hidden away inside and couldn’t stop smiling. I believe there may have even been a few audible ‘Oh’s’ and ‘Ah’s’ for good measure, too.
It’s easy to appreciate how lovingly each and every item (think: organic tea tin, lemon sugar cookies, natural body scrub, soy candle) was selected for the box, and I can tell you that receiving this gift was most definitely the highlight of my week. Can you just imagine how your mom would react to opening something as lovely as this beauty on her special day? Scroll on for a few other gift box ideas that all aim to please mom.
3 Mother’s Day Gift Box Ideas:
- A framed recipe card with your favorite recipe of hers written on it, plus all the ingredients needed to make it.
- Her favorite brand of tea in multiple flavors, arranged nicely in a mason jar, with a pretty patterned notebook and pen so that she can make notes about her favorites.
- A bottle of wine, classic chick flick movie (ex. The Parent Trap, When Harry Met Sally, Pretty Woman), pair of fuzzy socks, and a new throw blanket.
