My mother has given me some pretty amazing gifts throughout the years.
And I’m not just talking about the tangible things.
She has given me her love, unconditionally. A safe and happy home. The encouragement and confidence to pursue my dreams. The belief that anything is possible. Kind words when I needed them (and reality checks when those were in order.) Support and nurturing. Advice — requested and unsolicited — but always from the heart. A sassy sense of humor. My love of home and creativity. Wisdom, praise and guidance as I journey through motherhood.
In other words, she has given me everything. All of who she is and all of who I am.
When I think about all my mom has given me throughout the years, she definitely deserves celebrating on Mother’s Day. And I’ll do that, with words of love, time together and a thoughtful gift.
I won’t tell you exactly what I’m getting my mom, because there’s a good chance she’s reading this. (She’s sneaky like that. When it comes to presents, she’s easy to buy for because I know her style and taste so well. But she’s also a very good guesser, or maybe it’s just that she’s a bit of a snoop.)
But I have curated a collection of vintage-style Mother’s Day gift ideas from World Market and Shutterfly, inspired by my mother who took me to yard sales as a kid and taught me to see the beauty in items with a past. (Because who doesn’t have a past?)
Here are my top picks (clockwise from top left) for gifts for moms who love vintage style:
- Large Aqua Charlie Clock
- Mint Rhinestone Estate Style Drop Earrings
- Shadow Box Edison Lamp
- Castelbel Lemon Blossom Airmail Bar Soap
- Black and White Fuchsia Print Apron
- Shutterfly Family Memories Photo Book
- Cream Patisserie Cake Carrier
- Jade and Glass Pedestal Stand
- Shutterfly Gallery Photo Cube
- Wood and Glass Pie Sign
