Mother's Day Gift Guide 2014
Chances are, you think your mom is the best, or you love a mom who is the best to her little ones. Even if you think she is maybe only second or third best, you probably feel she deserves the best, because you are so full of appreciation. We’ve compiled a short Mother’s Day gift guide of Grovemade products we know mothers love, along with some other high quality, handcrafted items made right here in Portland, Oregon.
Scribble Hanging Planter, Pigeon Toe ceramics
Everyone knows moms love to hang things from the ceiling, especially plants. She’ll hang her plants in style with this hand-thrown porcelain hanging planter, a modern update on the macrame planters you grew up with. Give her a plant already potted in this elegant vessel, and it’s a gift better than flowers, because it will keep on growing! Pigeon Toe has gift certificates, great for time-sensitive occasions.
Maple iPad Sleeve, Grovemade
Moms and their iPads, right? She’ll love protecting hers in our contoured, flexible wood and wool sleeve that keeps the iPad safe from impacts and scratches. It’s shown here in maple but is also available in rich walnut or in larger versions for MacBook Air. The sleeve has a warm, organic feel and is surprisingly soft to the touch for a wood veneer product. It’s got a leather and solid brass pull tab to help mom get her iPad out of the sleeve without grabbing or tugging.
Sullivan Table Lamp in White + Walnut, Caravan Pacific
Light up Mom’s life with this classy table lamp made by hand in Portland. The clean white and wood design brightens any room and goes with virtually all decor. This lamp has a white matte stoneware base, walnut wood neck and finial, a white linen shade, and a side rocker switch.
Maple iPhone Dock, Grovemade
Our iPhone Dock makes a wonderful gift for anyone. But, we’ve heard its praises directly from the mouths of moms. This wood and solid steel iPhone Dock gives your mom a dependable spot to charge her phone, while also classing up her nightstand, desktop, or wherever she places it. And, in case you haven’t heard, it weighs a heavy 3 lbs, so she can plug and unplug her phone easily using just one hand.
Matchsticks Tote Bag, Nell & Mary
Make Mom’s shopping and errands 400% more pleasant (scientifically proven) with this spacious canvas carryall. It’s made from organic cotton canvas and hand printed with this playful Matchsticks design in charcoal gray. The straps are vegetable tanned leather with antique brass rivets. Three interior canvas pockets help Mom keep things organized.
