When I was a kid my mom always asked us to work in her garden as her gift for Mother's Day. Every year all of us would wake up on Sunday, head to church, then home to spend the day as a family weeding, mowing, and planting flowers and vegetables.
These days I usually go for a more traditional gift but since I'm now living back in Seattle maybe I'll have to resurrect the old tradition this year! Here are some Mother's Day gift ideas from around the web and in Seattle:
Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Honey Bath and Souffle Body Creme - this is my mom's favorite.
Schoolhouse Electric candle set - classy but modern
A hand chosen collection of beautifully bound hardcover classic books.
Bella Balls - beautiful handblown glass balls in different colors and meaningful decals made in our own Tacoma, WA.
Modern Trellis Planters with herbs or succulents for her garden/patio.
If you feel like going all out, can't go wrong with a gorgeous Kate Spade Bangle Watch.
