Mother's Day Gift Guide

Can you believe Mother's Day is right around the corner? From sentimental to funny, quick ideas to last minute DIY's, we've rounded up some of our favorite gift ideas to show mom (or any of the special women in your life) just how much they mean to you.

1. Funny cards from the talented illustrator, Emily McDowell, that keep it real. Because let's face it, moms are there through thick and thin.

2. Send Brittani Rose, paper artist extraordinaire, a photo of your favorite pet and she'll create a completely custom likeness filled with personality, literally jumping out from the page.

3. Put a fun twist of breakfast in bed with this toast shaped egg mold. Simply top a piece of fresh toast with your "lovely" egg and watch the smiles that ensue.

4. As an alternative to the traditional bouquet, opt for a hanging orchid that naturally defies gravity.

5. The mug says it all — "Only the best moms get promoted to Nana." This mug and more available from Milk & Honey Luxuries, a Richmond based Etsy shop.

6. Perfect for momma bird — pair of nesting bird ring and trinket dishes lovingly handcrafted by Richmond based ceramic artist, Tasha McKelvey.

7. We love this DIY project idea for a homemade Mother's day gift — mason jar succulent planters with free printable gift tags from Lolly & Jane blog.

8. One of our personal favorites — sending a little RVA love. Choose from old classics like Ukrop's rainbow cookies to new staples like Blanchard's coffee when you send an RVA To Go Box.

9. We love these customizable family tree prints from Jill Taylor, another Richmond based designer and owner of the Etsy shop Sweet Sycamore — especially the options for both traditional and blended families.

10. Transform a collection of your favorite family Instagram snaps into a 365 photo calendar, filled with daily reminders to make mom smile.

11. Why not get a little fancy and stop by your local blow dry bar? This is one of those little luxuries — awesome for spoiling a new mom looking to feel polished or a girls' day out together.
