It's May Day! And you know what that means? Mother's Day is just around the corner (Sunday, May 12, to be exact). We've been asking ourselves... what are we going to get for our lovely mommas this year? Well, after an afternoon spent brainstorming, we've come up with some fun ideas that we couldn't help but share.
1) Custom bouquet of Glassybabies
Glassybaby is a Seattle based company that makes small colored glass cups, candleholders, and vases. These handmade treasures come in hundreds of delicious colors that can be mixed and matched, creating custom sets or "bouquets" to send as gifts. Each color has a different name and story, so you can customize the set to your heart's content. In addition to being absolutely adorable and a totally cute home or table accessory, the proceeds of each glassybaby sold benefit a variety of causes and charities. Glassybaby was founded by a 3-time cancer survivor, with a mission of light and hope. You can read more about their story on their website. $44 each; www.glassybaby.com
