HANNAH SHELBY: Mothers Day Gift Guide


1. Matching Jewelry

Over the last 10 years, my mother and I have picked a few pieces of matching jewelry, and it has become one of our favorite traditions. We don’t live in the same state, but everyday I look down at our special ring knowing she is doing the same, and it brings an immense amount of comfort. We recently ordered some rings from the jewelers at Bario Neal in Philadelphia. They make lovely handcrafted pieces with reclaimed precious metals, Fairmined gold, ethically sourced stones, and low-impact, environmentally conscious practices. Bario Neal

2. Eames Hang-It-All

If your mother is one who appreciates midcentury design, this classic piece from Charles and Ray Eames will not only look great in her home, but help keep her things organized and tidy. The Hang-it-all comes available in the classic multi-color, as well as two newer options—solid black and solid white. Design Within Reach

3. Fancy Candles

The candles from Le Labo are made with 100% soy wax and blended with essential oils for a luxury experience at home. She can curl up with her favorite book, and a glass of wine, and relax like she deserves. Le Labo Santal 26

4. House Plant

Plants are more popular than ever, and this is a gift that keeps on giving. Every time she looks at the plant, she will be reminded of just how much you care for her—even if she has no green thumb at all. This “snake plant” or “mother in law’s tongue” is well known for being nearly impossible to kill, requiring little water or sunlight. Available at Home Depot.

5. Pretty Stationary

Perfect for the mom who loves to write notes the old fashioned way. This glamorous stationary set by Rifle Paper Company can be used for many occasions—to say thank you, happy birthday, or just to say hello. Rifle Paper Company Assorted Crown Card Set

6. Marble Baking Slab

It never fails—every time you come to visit, your mother has a fresh baked pie, gooey chocolate chip cookies, or piping hot cinnamon rolls ready when you arrive. This marble pastry board is a sophisticated addition to her kitchen and doubles as a beautiful serving tray for parties and holidays. French Kitchen Pastry Slab

7. Sparkling Wine

You’re mother’s love deserves to be celebrated! Pop a bottle of bubbly together and reminisce on all the good times you’ve shared and all the reasons you love her so. Bonus, this bottle from Sofia Coppla comes pre wrapped with pink cellophane and the bottle is pretty enough to used as a vase after. Sofia Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine
