Chocolate, Flowers and Pampering
by @schulmanArt, Miriam Schulman


You don’t have to think so hard to come up with a great Mother’s Day gift idea. Really, this is what she wants. I know. I am a mom, I have a mom, and I know lots of moms and guess what? I haven’t met a mom yet the world over who doesn’t want these treats for their special day. That doesn’t mean you can’t be creative in your choices of these gifts. Here are some create ways to spice up your gifts to the special mother in your life whether she is your mom, or the mom of your children.

Chocolate Banana Jam by heirofbees

Instead of the usual box of chocolates, surprise your mom with this delightful decadent jam. Great on toast, yogurt, ice-cream, cottage cheese, cereal, muffins, mixed drinks … even right off the spoon,  she will enjoy every spoonful and maybe even share some with you. All jams are sealed in a brand new 16 oz Mason jar and are packaged beautifully.

ORIGINAL Floral Painting

Why not give your mother flowers that last forever? Not silk, or plastic, but an artwork that she can hang on her walls and think of you every time she looks at it. you can choose between an original floral painting or am affordable fine art print. Click here to see all my Flower paintings!



Felted Soaps by claudineehlers
These sweet, lavender scented soaps will make a beautiful, natural addition to her bathroom or powder room! This set of five felted bars is presented in a hand-felted crocheted bowl!   Wool is naturally anti-fungal and exfoliates gently and allows the soap to last longer! As an added bonus, when the soap is gone, your mother can use these as sachets in her drawers, shoes, gym bag or even as a scrubber for dishes or the tub!
What do you think makes a special gift for Mother’s Day?

  1. Moms need pampering! The lovely quilted robe featured in the treasury is perfect for snuggling into – and the big Asian flowers and bright blue coloring make it really unique as well.

    I also think that Jewelry is always a great idea. My mom had the most amazing and unique pieces in her jewel box. Vintage jewelry will always fit the bill – its special and unique and full of personality.

  2. While shopping for my mother, I always disregard the lists of things that have caught her eye. I enjoy the element of surprise when she opens up a gift that shows her I really do listen to her when she speaks! Being a jewelry maker, this year I have listened to her critiques and tips to design what she has envisioned to be, "The Perfect Bracelet, Lauren!" Specializing in wrap jewelry, I have made my mother a set of 4 bracelets, each wrapping around her wrist twice. By doing this, she can wear all of them, or one of them, mix and match, and still be shocked when she sees I didn't go through with buying her yet another pandora bead (she has a book with the ones she likes circled)!

    The piece featured here, has been made with all natural supplies including thick blue turquoise beads, genuine chocolate brown leather, and a shell and metal button for closure. The quality of this cuff is great for a mother because it can withstand the daily life of a working mom as well as the dirty jobs taken on by all mothers! Also, to back that up, I stand by my jewelry and fix wear and tear damage for free!

    Turquoise for mothers day may seem odd, but I personally feel that there is something about turquoise as a gemstone that is timeless. It is perfect for my grandmother, my mom, my aunts, and has been a conversation starter/common liking with my quiet cousins who are in high school. I do not know what it is about the stone, but it seems to have a specific beauty that all women can see and appreciate, no matter what their age may be.

    Thanks so much for featuring my piece! I am flattered!

  3. Thank you so much Miriam! Very nice blog post too but the way. I'm a mom and really I only want the simplest of gifts (or no gifts really)–what means more to me is getting dinner made for me. haha.

    Thanks Again!

  4. Personally I am a big fan of MOM-Pride jewelry…be it birds nest or tree of life necklaces with all the kids birthstones, or a chain strung with hand-stamped name tags, or a bangle with a wonderful mother quote. It last forever and gives them something to show off beside the grandkids photos.
