4 Vintage Gifts for Mom with a Thoughtful Extra:
A Gorgeous Vase with Her Favorite Flowers
Fresh flowers are certainly a go-to gift for mom, but this year put her favorite flowers in a gorgeous vintage vase or pitcher she can use again and again. Consider too a lovely faux arrangement that she can enjoy all the time.
This pretty vintage strawberry pitcher makes a sweet vase for pink peonies and can also be used for serving a pitcher of her favorite cocktails!
A Unique Tea Set & Her Favorite Brew
Mom definitely deserves to kick back and relax this Mother’s Day, so why not encourage her to enjoy a lovely cup of tea with a unique tea set. Be sure to pick up some teas she can sip with her new set. My go-to for loose leaf teas are from Capital Teas and Piper & Leaf.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match teapots with different cups. This darling elephant and baby teapot works beautifully with Rose Medallion cups.
An Elegant Bowl with Her Favorite Skin Care
Take the gift basket idea to the next level with an elegant vintage bowl or basket loaded with her favorite skin care products. Choose a bowl in her favorite china pattern or colors that she can use for a variety of purposes.
Skin care products can get expensive, so select two or three items and then fill in the basket with chocolates or candies.
This elegant reticulated basket in blue and white with gilt accents is from Andrea by Sadek. Shop it here.
A Chic Tray & Her Favorite Sweet Treat
The fourth gift for mom idea is a chic tray like this vintage brass bamboo one. Bake mom’s favorite cookies or sweet treat to gift with the tray for that thoughtful touch.
Trays are such a decorating staple that she can use for serving or as an organizer on the vanity, coffee table, or sideboard. See my tips for using trays in this post.
Be sure to select one that works with her decor style. Shop the brass one here.
