Top Gifts for Mother’s Day

Lucky for you we spend a lot of time reviewing products and services that any mom would want for this blog.  Here’s our list of top products and services that are sure to make your mother or mother-in-law happy.  And if your husband doesn’t even have Mother’s Day on his radar (ahem…) then, you may want to share this post with him (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).
Top Gifts for Mother's Day
1.  Margarita basket:  What mom doesn’t like a good ole margarita?  From now until Cinco de Mayo, zero-calorie BeMixed margarita cocktail mixers are 20% off if you use the discount code “SHARETHELOVE”.  So make Mother’s Day fun with a little less guilt by getting her these yummy mixers.  Add a bottle of good tequila, and what mom wouldn’t love you for that gift?  I know these moms would!

2.  Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman will be our next book review.  But, don’t wait for the review.  This title has been added to Libby’s list of favorite books – so trust us, your mom will love it!  Still skeptical?  Add a $25 Amazon gift card so she can pick out her next book club book, cookbook or stack of magazines.
3.  PJs – So who really likes to buy pjs for themselves?  If I got a cute pj set like these Bardot Dreamland Pajamas, that are super cute and I could lounge in at the same time, I would be happy!

4.  Tote – This is a great gift for any mom that needs a bag to hold just about everything.  This Reversible Faux Leather Tote and Wristlet  is great, pretty indestructable and large enough to fit all the crap that mom’s lug around.  It’s simple and cute!  It’s also available in black – which I want!   Check out RemnantsBagCompany for even more great options for totes, handbags, and clutches!

 4. Spa Services – These are always appreciated!  What mom doesn’t need a little me-time?  Choose from a host of services, including a manicure, pedicure, facial, dermoplane, massage, or just go with a general gift card.  She deserves it!  For Clevelanders, we highly recommend Santo Salon & Spa. We’ll be reviewing this spa and some of their amazing services later this week!

5.  Don’t Forget the Card.  Buy a unique card, one that you won’t find in big box chains and let her know that you took some time to think of her.  Inked & Dotted offers both humorous and sincere cards that add a special touch to any gift.
 6.  Spanx leggings  – What mom doesn’t want to look trendy and cool?  Well, I do and I’d like a pair of these please!  Not only do they suck you in a few inches but they can be worn for a workout or for a casual outing! And remember it came recommended – so don’t read into it when you get these as a gift – appreciate them – they are awesome!  Available in multiple colors and fabrics.

Inked & Dotted

Several years ago, looking at Mother’s Day cards at a big chain store, Whitney Ralston Adelman felt frustrated with the poor card selection and high prices.  “I had always been creative and I knew I could do better.”  So, Whitney began what she described as “doodling” and created six cards.  She showed these cards to a local boutique and they were interested in selling them.  Encouraged by their interest, Whitney kept working to round out her line. 

Not long after, the boutique called to tell her someone was interested in her Ohio print.  From there she began to expand her line of products to include framed prints, t-shirts, and onesies.

Starting her company,  Inked & Dotted, Whitney took a lot of advice from people with different ideas of how to expand her line.  “It took time to figure out what was working and selling”  Once, she did, she was able to  streamline her product line to what it is today. Inked & Dotted’s products include cards, framed prints, apparel, bags, ornaments, and custom design work.  New this year, Whitney has added recipe cards, custom invitations, and fill-in-the-blank invitations for showers and parties.  When asked to describe her company, Whitney told us,

“Inked & Dotted is a stationery company – but I would say that everything I make starts with pen and paper.  It’s my original artwork.”

With the growing trend of pop-up business opportunities and an appreciation for hand-crafted items, Whitney has experienced a growth in Inked & Dotted sales.

As a Michigan native, Whitney  talked to us about her Ohio line,   “I’m not from Ohio, I’m really grateful. People are really creative, interesting, and investing in local companies.”

Speaking of Ohio, here are a few of the markets, where Whitney will be selling her Inked & Dotted products this spring and summer:

March 24 – 25, Junk Bash, Columbus
April 21, The Cleveland Flea
April 27-29, Vintage Market Days, Columbus
May 12, The Cleveland Flea
June 1-3, Vintage Market Days – Dayton/Xema

She will be announcing more dates soon, so be sure to follow her on Instagram and Facebook.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, be sure to check out Inked & Dotted cards and framed prints!  She has a wide array of beautifully designed cards to uniquely show your appreciation to your mom (and in some cases your sense of humor like the card above).  Cards are available for just about every occasion.
