You won’t be shocked to know I pretty much buy all my gifts from Boutique Fabulous.  Once you’ve found a place that takes great care to stock a solid variety of gifts from whimsical to sexy to elegant to flirty to manly, it’s becomes simply One Stop Shopping. Case in point, I popped in to see what goodies my own Mum might like as a gift to reiterate how much I love and appreciate everything she does for me.  My mum, like many ladies I know, likes to sit back and relax with a cup of hot tea. BF is carrying an adorable set of dishes, white with basket weave design replete with little blue bumble bees.  If your Mum loves her tea but it less “teapot” and more “tea cup” why not snag her a fun little Teatanic unsinkable tea infuser paired with a tin of tea? Everyone loves beautiful and aesthetically-pleasing things in their house to gaze at day to day, and green is an  incredibly popular color all year round– especially in Spring. BF is stocked with gorgeous green glass dishes, reminiscent of vintage Depression Glass, gorgeous clear green glass plates and dishes that shine gorgeously in the sunlight and have been and remain highly collectible. If hunting down antiques is not your thing, grab your Mum one of these stunning green hobnail pitchers, they are just as beautiful as the originals of years past. Does your Mum love pleasant fragrances? Perhaps an Illume Outdoor candle would be perfect for her to burn on her porch or deck during the upcoming balmy summer evenings? Is your Mummy a happening hostess and always in need of party dishware? Scoop up a Sauce Dish Tray set for her– the candy colors alone with have her swooning and the usefulness of this item will seal the deal. Last but not least, BF always has awesome decorating and lifestyle books on hand, the kind you don’t know you absolutely HAVE to have until they are in your hand and your are ogling every stunning picture. My personal favorite right now is called Homespun Style.

Gifts are great, don’t get me wrong, but be sure to attach a handwritten card to your Mother’s Day gift.  Remember how happy your Mum looked when you brought her home your school drawings when you were a wee one? Regardless of how grown up you are now, your Mum will never stop enjoying getting a little hand-penned note or drawing from her child.


To all the Mothers out there, I wish you the most glorious of days.  You are all amazing.


Until next time,
