My Sister's Closet and My Sister's Attic offer new ideas to help you give gifts from the heart
Remember serving Mom breakfast in bed? What a nice treat for a woman that works all the time. Just be sure to clean the kitchen when you are finished!
This year just in time for Mother's Day, the three sisters who own My Sister's Closet and My Sister's Attic have come up with some ideas to help you show your mom how much you love her and give Mom what she really wants this year.
"My daughter always makes me a coupon booklet. It is a stapled together book, colored and decorated, with coupons offering chores and niceties she will do for me," said Tess Loo, sister and head stylist for My Sister's Closet and My Sister's Attic. "The coupons are for things like 15 minutes of hair brushing, which I love."
Loo says let the bright festive colors of springtime lead you to an inspirational gift.
"There are so many happy yellow things in the marketplace for spring. Use a black sharpie marker and write positive affirmation messages on lemons then put them in a tall cylinder vase, tie a ribbon around it and bury your card inside. Just reading all the lemons will make mom smile."
A few more ideas for mom:
- Find some pretty trays, platters, glassware that you can tie with ribbons for mom to enjoy later. The porcelain eggs on the cake stand are beautiful and musical.
- Moms need to meditate and enjoy some private time. Make her a CD of gentle meditation music that you selected. Wrap it in a lovely scarf she can wear and enjoy later. Wearing the scarf will remind Mom of the calm and peace from the music and meditation. She will be happy and serene. You could also paint a watercolor for Mom and place it inside the cover of the CD case.
- Every Mom loves a new handbag! Since buying a handbag directly from the designer might be too pricey head over to My Sister's Closet where floral, pastel and black and white are all the buzz. This Coach bag is $69.95 and Halo is $24.95. Both are perfect for Mom and affordable for you. Take it a step more and put a handmade card in the bag, or add an "I love you coupon" inside.
- Remember Mom is a woman and women become giddy over all things beautiful. Every woman loves a Little Black Dress, pearls, earrings, perfume. Take her shopping, buy her a gift card, make her an appointment with a local stylist (most stores have one), or treat her to a manicure and brush her hair.
"Whatever you choose to do for Mom, remember to tell her she is valued and appreciated. Join her for a yoga class or a long walk. Remind her it is a day of gratitude and you are grateful she is your Mom," said Loo.
