Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is Sunday! If you’re in need of a special something to show Mom all of your gratitude and love, I can assure you that we have just the thing.

The store is literally bursting with great new things, many of which we know your Mom would love! To give you an idea of what’s in store here’s a handy little gift guide of some of our top picks for Mom!

You can never go wrong with Tokyo Milk. We’re especially enamoured with their hand creams. Made from shea butter and crushed and distilled essences, these all natural hand creams will leave Mom’s hands silky smooth and smelling divine!

Available in five different scents, $19.95 each

Is your Mom queen of the Kitchen? Check out these 100% cotton tea towels! We love the fresh colours and detailed sea creature images that adorn these super durable and absorbent towels.

Do you have a green thumb Mom? How about gifting her with a new addition to her plant family? We have some beautiful planters in the shop that are great for indoors and out. Just pop in a plant and voila!

Green ceramic planters $12.95-$18.95, terra cotta planters $12.75-$21.95, sap bucket planters $22.00

Pheylonian 100% beeswax candles are a wonder product that make a beautiful gift. They have a lovely natural smell, and warm long-burning honey coloured flame.
