Delysia Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for 2014


Mother’s Day is a little less than two weeks away (hint for anyone who is still on the hunt for a gift – May 11th)!  If the Mom in your life is anything like me, she is wishing for a combination of downtime and a little bit of pampering.  I think even a day to sleep in and have some coffee and breakfast in bed would be gift enough! But having something to unwrap is always fun as well, so here are a few of my suggestions/wishes for Mother’s Day gifts.


A robe would be a perfect gift and start to a day of relaxation, and something that can be used throughout the year as well.  This one from Anthropologie is one of my favorites.  And what day of lounging would be complete without a chocolate indulgence, maybe even starting with breakfast in bed?  Delysia of course has a collection of Mother’s Day truffles that are sure to be a hit with all the mamas in your life.

For me, downtime is always accompanied by a good book and I’ve heard great things about Maria Semple’s novel.  And if you’re looking for a little something extra, I can’t imagine who wouldn’t love this gorgeous agate necklace.

However you decide to celebrate, Happy Mother’s Day!
