Face it: You can’t possibly repay your mother for the very first gift she gave you: life itself.
She knows you love her, but would it hurt to find her a little something to show her? Here are some ideas.
MADE IN THE (EYE) SHADE
Sunglasses: the perfect gift for any mother. There is never such thing as “too many” pairs and the best part is that one size fits all. Stylish and flirty, the Draper James “Charlotte” style is the newest line of must-haves for any woman. The company, founded by actress Reese Witherspoon, touts “southern roots and personal style”. Go no further than Vignette clothing store, located at 526 Southard Street, and find a variety of their popular styles like “Charlotte”, “Harper, “Mae” and “June” and pick one that suits the mother in your life. Retail $118.
Tell the mom in your life you love her with an adjustable cuff stamped with a special message. These stainless steel bracelets have a minimal, classic look and are as timeless as your love for her. Beach bum or not, there’s a cuff for every woman. There’s even one with Marathon’s coordinates on it. Designed by Angela Feltman in Cape Cod, Mass., the pieces are designed to “proudly show the world where your heart calls home.” What could be more Mother’s Day than that? Retail: $26. Find them at Bayshore Clothing in Marathon, 8911 Overseas Highway, MM 51.8 bayside.
It may sound cliché, but flowers are always a good bet. Orchids are an even better bet and certainly have an ability to bring color anywhere and illuminate anyone nearby. Kind of like mothers. Delivered fresh from South Florida, each orchid from Key Largo Flower and Gifts comes with a sturdy decorative vase. Be a superstar and water it for her every once in a while. Ideal for growing indoors, Phalaenopsis are considered low-light orchids and can flower often if cared for correctly. Call Key Largo Flower and Gifts at 305-451-3702 or visit keylargoflorist.com. Customers are encouraged to order a few days in advance of Mother’s Day. $75.00 to $120. $15 fee for delivery from Ocean Reef to Lower Matecumbe.
What better way to tell Mom that she rocks than a gift that literally spells it out. Let’s Put a Bird On It Mom-pliment candles are certainly “not yo grandma’s candles.” Made with wax from all naturally grown California-grown soybeans, these fun fragrances are a perfect gift idea for that hardworking mom who needs some “me time.” Also, make her feel extra good about her gift by telling her that 2 percent of the purchase was given to an animal rehab and rescue organization the company partners with. Each fragrance is vegan, paraben, and phthalate free. Key Largo Flower and Gifts, MM 99. Retail $20.
