The most memorable gifts are most thoughtful, and continue to give joy after the occasion. Gifts of experiences, nostalgia and daily, modern luxuries are those types of gifts.
Since travel restrictions have lifted, we are venturing out more and more with a greater appreciation of our freedom. This year let's celebrate the mother's in your life, and step out of the box from the traditional fragrance and flowers. Although, they are tried and true. When you reach a certain age, you can pretty much get what you want, or you've acquired quite a few trinkets over time.
The gifts you receive have deeper meanings. You're less inclined to be about superficial things and look forward to capturing moments, and making memories. This year's edit is all about meaningful gifts. Here are ten considerations.
A real getaway for a 2-night staycation is always a winner. This is great for a new mom or a seasoned mom. Very distinct. Prices start at $499/night
A beautiful crafted handbag supporting an emerging designer. This African American Designer, Brandon Blackwood. Worn by celebrities such as Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Lupita Nyong'o, Winnie Harlow, and many more. This Bowen bag in a loden green with gold hardware is a classic shape. $250.00
Yes! We're back to getting out again. Hit reset with beautiful travel gear that signifies that you're a queen. I love this entire vibe and it's sustainable. Also comes in some pretty cool colors as well. $395.00
As a real coffee lover, I'm here for all of this! Personally, I've been threatening to get myself this luxury machine...hint hint!
Currently on sale for $141.00 at Williams Sonoma
Rainbow Gradient Tiered Ruffle Evening Gown. An incredible emerging African American designer. He did the entire dress for SJP (Sarah Jessica Parker) at the Met Gala this week. $3,395.00. Truly a piece of art.
A perfect beach tote is always a win. This one from Saint Laurent will surely be an annual wardrobe staple.
Those who know me already know, I've loved loungewear before it was cool and athleisure wasn't even a word. Once again, supporting emerging black designers, FeNoel has not let me down. This showstopper is worth the investment for the bold and stylish mom. $798.00.
And finally, a beautiful puzzle worth framing. A membership to a museum, and of course, a beauty box subscription.
I hope this edit gives you some guidance. Please indulge and allow yourself to be honored and pampered.
Happy Mother's Day,
With Extraordinary Style,
