Mother's Day Inspiration




Mark your calendars and don't forget—Mother's Day is on May 9th.

Whether it's a quick call to your Mother across the country, a beautiful handbag filled with collectibles, or lunch and flowers at her favorite place, Mother's Day is the day to give, with a little extra thought and appreciation. And who does it better than Rachel Ashwell? I love her spirit of giving. After reading her fabulous book "The Gift of Giving", I began to really appreciate little thoughts and details, given as gifts...for often, they are the most precious gifts of all. I hope these images and ideas inspire you, also...









An idea: Why not spoil her a little with luxurious, pampering French skin care this Mother's Day? "Flowers for her Face" is a beautiful set from Votre Vu, and perfect for Mum. Please click here if you would like to see this lovely gift, offered at $46, though valued at $96. If you purchase anything from Votre Vu for Mother's Day, whether it be the set mentioned above or another lovely item, I encourage you to purchase through Traci Kuhn, ( as linked ) as she has generously offered to donate all the profits to this wonderful charity...a gift that feels good to give.

A Few More Lovely Gift Ideas

* A chic and playful tote
* Something custom to forever treasure
* Sweet dessert bowls + this cookbook
* A lovely, Chanel inspired bracelet
* A luxurious "cashmere" candle
* Exquisite spoons...just because
* A charming necklace
+ the best person to wrap them up pretty!

  15. I'm bookmarking this post because it's SO gorgeous. I'm obsessed with Rachel Ashwell-- I used to watch her show on the Style channel all the time. I was devastated when the Shabby Chic boutique in Chicago closed! That store was my happy place :)
