For the classic mother who loves high-quality, leather handbags.
All women love purses but for most moms high-quality handbags seem to hold a special place in their hearts. For a few years most mamas forego their purse obsession in lieu of the more practical and pragmatic diaper bag. However, once the time comes to ditch the diaper bag at least one high-quality handbag is a must. Unlike the younger years where mom might have switched purses daily to match her outfits, now between work, chauffeuring kids, and home there simply isn’t time. As such, this Mother’s Day give your mom the gift of a classic yet contemporary handbag appropriate for all occasions.

Crafted of water-repellant, pebbled leather this bag will stand up to everyday use, but is still gorgeous enough for a night on the town. Featuring a top snap closure and interior zipper pocket there is a place for all of mom’s essentials.

The perfect combination of fashion and function
For the Momtographer, half the struggle of taking amazing photos of the kids is bringing the ‘big camera’ along for the ride. The gift of a fashionable and functional camera bag from Ona will help her keep her gear safe while she’s on the go.
The Leather Bond Street is a compact messenger bag with antique brass hardware, built specifically to store a dslr camera and 1 or 2 lenses. With a foam padded interior and removable divider, she can easily carry her camera, smart phone and other daily essentials for any photoshoot on the go.
The soft leather makes the Bond Street a high quality bag that will last for years, and the antique hardware adds provides an heirloom quality you won’t find in other camera bag options. Thanks to the removable strap, it’s possible to pop the Bond Street into a larger bag as an insert, keeping the camera safe and secure no matter where she goes.
The Bond Street is one of Ona’s most compact bags, making it perfect for every day use. Photographers needing more space for additional lenses may find that the Bond’s big sister, the Bowery Messenger Bag, is ideal for bringing along a few extra lenses to round out your shoot.

ABLE is a lifestyle brand focused on more than just fashion . . . they are ending generational poverty by working with women who have overcome extraordinary circumstances.
We love the Able Abera Crossbody Tote! It’s handcrafted in both Ethiopia and Mexico, and is made from 100% genuine distressed leather. It can be worn over the shoulder or as a cross-body tote. At 12.5″ high and 16.5″ wide, is the ideal size for an everyday purse. It has an interior pocket and a magnetic closure. It’s shown here in cognac leather, but there are 8 color variations from which you can choose.
As a personal touch, you can have the bag monogrammed with mom’s name, making it a keepsake that she’ll treasure forever.
For the ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS Mom who desires a fashionable yet cruelty free watch.
You wouldn’t think a cruelty free, vegan watch would be so hard to find, but when your specifications also include fashion forward-it most certainly can be. This is where Votch comes in. They make gorgeous timepieces combine classic style and impeccable designs. Each watch features a vegan leather strap and arrives with its own eco friendly felt pouch and box. You can also rest assured that every piece is PVC-Free, Phthalate-free, contains no added antimicrobial chemicals, no flame retardant, no heavy metals and is absolutely animal friendly!
A little curious about Votch as a company? So were we! Well it turns out that yes, they were launched as a cruelty free watch company in London last year. Their founder, Laura was struck down with a condition called Topical Steroid Withdrawal, a condition where all of skin fell off. While this sounds awful, it is sometimes important to know just how a company came to be. Her passion comes through in all that she does because during the year that it took her to recover she educated herself on various subjects regarding animal welfare, including facts about the leather industry. Shocked will all she was seeing and learning and having known the pain of losing her own skin, she vowed to no longer where the skin of animals again.
Knowing that true love and care that goes into each product makes us love these gorgeous watches even more! We are swooning over the gold selection, and we know that the Mom in your life will too.
Hello! We’re Votch, a cruelty free watch company that launched in London last year. Votch was founded by me, Laura, and I run the company with Rolo, my rehomed (smaller than most rabbits) pooch. Votch began when a few years back I was struck down with a condition called Topical Steroid Withdrawal, a condition that saw all my skin fall off (we’ll spare you from the pictures!). During the year that it took me to recover, I turned to documentaries and educated myself on various subjects regarding animal welfare, including facts about the leather industry that truly shocked me. Seeing the suffering that animals endured simply for fashion, and having felt the pain of losing my own skin, I vowed never to wear the skin of another being again.

Because Mom deserves the gift of wellness this Mother’s Day.
Amber necklaces aren’t just for teething babies anymore! Mom can reap the many benefits of healing jewelry as well, and Inspired by Finn is our favorite place to shop. The necklace featured here is handmade in the USA by work-at-home moms – which is amazing in and of itself! The amber jewelry is handmade in Lithuania.
While we’ve been signed, sealed, delivered believers in amber teething necklaces, we’ll admit being a little skeptical of the Max Strength necklace for hyperactivity and attention deficit. Made from lepidolite (purple: soothing stone that promotes relaxation. Very useful for hyperactivity and attention deficit. It can help calm an overactive mind.), black tourmaline (black: helps one disengage from compulsive behaviors; supports the immune system.), and frosted quartz (white: powerfully amplifies the vibration of the lepidolite and black tourmaline.), this necklace will help mom accomplish everything on her to-do list.
But does it work? Our tester had a week that could be described simply as “being on the struggle bus,” in terms of getting work done. She put this on and forgot all about it (meaning, a placebo effect was impossible), and immediately had a change in focus, banging out tasks left and right. So, yes, it was incredibly effective!
Nothing screams, “I’m a crunchy mama” more than wearing some of your own amber jewelry. You can match your babies and children and sport your own assortment of stunning amber bracelets, in the wide variety of colors and combinations that Inspired by Finn offers. Each bracelet we’re showing here is made from 100% authentic unpolished Baltic amber, and strung with nylon cord with a knot in between each bead. Below, you’ll see from left to right: Unpolished Cider, Unpolished Harvest, and Unpolished Diversity.

For the mom who prefers her wine on the go.
The PortoVino City Tote is the ultimate gift in stylish design meets clever functionality. At first glance, this beautiful handbag will make you stand out for its’ bright color palette and sleek design. Upon further notice, you will stand out for an entirely different reason! Each bag contains a hidden insulated zippered pocket that holds a party pouch. Each party pouch can be filled with your favorite beverage (up to 1.5L, or the equivalent of two bottles of wine). Simply lift the small flap on the front to reveal the pour spout. While the flap easily conceals the contents of the party pouch, it is highly accessible with a quick flip up. From patio parties to poolside escapes, snow storm sledding parties to beach side settings, there really isn’t an environment that this great bag wouldn’t work well in. And to top it off, you will most certainly be the talk of the group with this great find!
In addition to holding your favorite drink, there are also plenty of inside pockets to store keys, glasses, pens, notebooks, make-up and more. The large tote measures 17″ long x 6″ wide x 13″ tall so is roomy enough for all of your necessities. From wine at book club to gatorade at a youth soccer tournament, iced tea at a summer picnic to simple hydration with H2O, this concept is usable for everyone. If the City Tote isn’t the design for you, there are other options to fit personalities and tastes of all types. Porto Vino offers a Day Pack Backpack as well as an over-the-shoulder messenger bag. If you’re looking for a casual bag to accompany you to the beach, the canvas tote will be right up your alley.
PortoVino is committed to giving back which is why they have teamed up with Feed My Starving Children. Each year, PortoVino provides a minimum of 25,000 meals to children in need in appreciation of their customers. A purse that holds chilled wine and supports a great mission? Now THAT is a winning combination.
For every mother, to keep her loved ones close.
Jewelry is a no-brainer for Mother’s Day presents – something to commemorate the love of a child or the sacrifice of a spouse. But jewelry that is beautifully personalized just for the mother in your life takes a great gift and makes it extra special.Isabelle Grace does just that – creating stunning personalized necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, and keepsakes that no mother could ever deny.
We especially love Isabelle Grace’s Personalized Stacking Rings. These hand forged rings come in gold, silver, and rose gold, and are made so that they can be easily stacked as well as mixed and matched. The stacking rings can also be personalized up to 12 characters, such as a child’s name, a commemorative date, or perhaps the name of a special place. Symbols, such as a heart or star, can also be used to add a unique touch. We love the cool vibe and standard type writer text that these rings convey.
For those looking for a bit of an edgier style than the standard ring, we also love Isabelle Grace’s Personalized Open Cuff Ring, featured here in Rose Gold. Like the stacking rings, the cuff is hand made and stamped in the Isabelle Grace studio. Offering a more minimalist appeal, this ring can be personalized with initials or symbols, or simply left blank. Mixed and matched with the stacking rings, these rings easily become an accessories show stopper.
Jewelry is often more than just the bling – it’s the love, the feeling, the people, and their stories that go into picking out a great piece of jewelry for someone else. When a mother wears a piece of personalized jewelry, it can become something that is cherished for a lifetime by not just her, but her family as well. Isabelle Grace cultivates this love and feeling into every piece!
