Mother’s Day Series: Gifts That Will Make Her LOL

April 20, 2013

In the spirit of tongue-in-cheek showings of love, we present some of our favorite LOL Mother’s Day gifts.

First, let’s be honest, children can be a headache. Remember your cuts, colds, stains, snot, very long recitals and many after-school activities? Yeah, you owe her. You can start with a Retro Mother’s Day Card that’s totally true:

For her many cups of coffee or tea throughout the day, remind her of all the times she saved you and took care of you — perhaps even more than needed. Give her the Original Seatbelt Mom mug:

And for a smug show of pride that she can carry everywhere, there’s the Keep Calm Call Mom iPhone case:

Mother’s Day Series: Gifts for the Pet Lover

As we continue our Mother’s Day series, we want to salute the pet-loving moms out there and highlight the gifts available especially for them — to remind them that the humans in their family also love them.

You can start with a Corgi Mom Reusable Water Bottle, perfect for her daily walks and especially at the dog park:

Mother’s Day Series: Classic Gifts for the Vintage Mom

April 18, 2013

Not every mom is like Amy Poehler’s character in Mean Girls — determined to be ‘a cool mom’ (though some definitely try). Some moms are more old-fashioned. They like how things have been done, and why not?

Our Mother’s Day series highlights the array of gifts out there for the array of moms we have, from sporty to pet-loving to today’s guest of honor: the Vintage Mom.

Our Vintage Floral Mug is a perfect holder for her Earl Grey, Jasmine or Chamomile of choice:

What else is old-fashioned? Coasters, and we love them. Her mug or teacup will rest beautifully on the Vintage Orchids Coaster, with its classic purple flower in bloom:

Mother’s Day Series: Gifts for the Sporty Mom Who’s in a League of Her Own

April 17, 2013

We have a lot to appreciate from our supportive, dedicated mothers, and for the sporty ones among them, the best gifts are often the most handy and convenient ones. The Hockey Mom Water Bottle is a great example — it’s portable, dishwasher safe and a full 24 ounces to last through a full day of sports, driving and errands:

The Baseball Mom Canvas Bag is hefty enough to pack in athletic gear, snacks, a change of clothes and a towel — and shows off her passion for one of the greatest sports ever:

(There’s also a long-sleeved tee if she’d rather wear that with pride.)

If she’s a soccer lover, reward her with a Soccer Mom Shirt that’s as standout as she is — on and off the field:

To you and your sporty mother we say, play ball! Next up in our series: gifts for the vintage mom.

Mother’s Day Series: New Moms Deserve an Awesome Gift (and a Medal)

April 16, 2013

As far as we’re concerned, Mother’s Day takes effect as soon as labor is (gratefully) over. Whether the child is five seconds or five decades old, that mother is entitled to a Mother’s Day bash. So for all the new moms out there who are sleeping whenever they can, we salute you many times — and encourage all relevant loved ones to honor you on May 12 (is the calendar marked?).

We dedicate this second post in our Mother’s Day series to all new moms, with an array of personal, meaningful and playful gift options available for all. If the new mother in your life leans toward the funny, she may enjoy sporting the “I’m Kind of Pregnant” tee:

Winning this year’s most adorable gift ever, the “Love My Mommy” pacifier says it all (and Mom can always use the reminder):

For a truly personalized present, get her the Gray & Pink Baby Photo Album and fill it with your greatest memories:


And with 500 photo pages, it leaves ample space for years more of memorable moments.

Congrats to all new moms for weathering pregnancy, labor and early parenthood, and have a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day Series: Thanks For All That Artwork on the Fridge

April 15, 2013

Many of us did some version of artwork when we were kids. Fingerprint painting, painting by numbers, scribblings that our teachers kindly called “drawings” — and our parents even displayed these artworks at home. Wow, were they generous.

We can now return the favor with a unique and personal gift this Mother’s Day. We’re dedicating the first post in our Mother’s Day series to our favorite artwork gifts, as meaningful ways to say thanks to all our moms.

Given how many of our photos are on Instagram, the Instagram Photo Collage Poster is such a convenient and beautiful way to put the best recent memories together in one place:

The Custom Photo Trinket Box is perfect if you have an especially memorable photo and a mother who needs more places to store her things:

And for a newer mom (or grandma), the Custom Baby Damask Photo Keychain is a gorgeous memento to the latest child in her life:
