Mother’s Day 2017: Heartfelt Gifts for Mom

We know you love and adore your mother, and when you feel like you need to go that extra step, beyond flowers and candy and the cheesy Mother’s Day cards, we’ve made it a bit easier for you to “go beyond” the standard expectations. These heartfelt gifts give you some ideas from engravable jewelry that will forever keep your words close to her heart to minted keepsakes that convey the deepest gratitude and most memorable memories worth remembering over and over again. Every gift is heartfelt, it’s just that this time… it’s a little more special for you and Mom.


Minted

Perfect for the Mom that seemingly has everything

Top Mother’s Day Picks

Sometimes it seems that someone has everything they need, but the one gift that no mother would turn down is pictures of their children. Turn those pictures into a work of art, beautifully framed, and you have one gift that will last a lifetime. Thanks, Minted.

Most of our walls are covered in pictures of our children, posed and polished, from birth to present day. Those pictures mean the world to a mother, so when we found a way to commemorate a child in an artistic way, we fell head over heels. Minted’s Custom Silhouette Letterpress Art is a must on the walls of every home.

What could be sweeter than the profile of a little human being? Their sweet little button noses, finger-brushed hair, and wild cowlicks all embossed and emblazoned forever on your walls in a crisp and bright silhouette.

Minted’s Custom Silhouette Letterpress Art is the perfect addition to the walls of the family room, play room, or even each child’s bedroom. Featuring the silhouette of each child embossed onto fine paper in a color of your choice, this piece of art can be customized to fit any room scheme or heart’s desire.

Creating this piece of art is incredibly easy. Simply take a clear profile picture of your child – or pet – in front of a blank wall. Be sure to style the child’s hair that not only shows his or her personality, but also adds dimension to the piece. Upload the picture to Minted and one of their professional artists will create a silhouette in your chosen color. Add the child’s name (and age, like we did here!) to commemorate this special moment in time.

Finally, don’t forget Minted’s custom framing options – making this timeless piece even more polished. With a ton of frame options, you can choose just about any style (and color) to match your recipient’s home decor and unique style. The frame shown here is the Classic Whitewashed Herringbone, a hand-carved frame made of sustainable mango wood and etched in a whitewashed arrowhead pattern. Each frame is crafted individually, making each one unique and slightly different. We love the modern yet traditional look of this frame!

About Minted

Minted was developed with the artist in mind. A true artist’s marketplace, Minted provides a place for independent artists to create and sell their work. Through a crowdsourcing business model, Minted has given artists a platform to create, grow, and flourish through challenges that encourage artists to submit work and vote for the best. The winner is then given the chance to sell their work on Minted’s site.

 Thomas Sabo

Perfect for the thoughtful Mom

Top Mother’s Day Pick

Thomas Sabo has created one of the most extensive and stunning lines of premium jewelry that we’ve ever seen. There is truly something for everyone, and no matter what you pick from this collection, you are going to blow Mom away. This engraveable lotus flower necklace from Thomas Sabo is, in a word, stunning. It shines and sparkles like nothing we’ve seen before. You can engrave a sweet message to Mom on the back, or her children’s initials, as we’ve done here. Made from the brightest sterling silver, this pendant will truly surprise and delight Mom this Mother’’s Day.

The dainty lotus flower charm is loaded with sparkly pave zirconia, and has just the right touch of glitz to add something special to Mom’’s day. We just adore the meaning behind the lotus flower too, a symbol of purity and overcoming challenges (the lotus is a beautiful flower that grows out of the mud). Being a mother is hard, hard work, and the lotus can symbolize any mom’’s path in motherhood.

Each Round Belcher Chain is made from sterling silver with an eyelet clasp, and is incredibly durable. We won’’t say that it can always withstand a child tugging on it, but one of our Daily Babies gave it a few yanks, and this chain is pretty rock solid. Each piece of Thomas Sabo’s jewelry is elegantly packaged in their signature box and provides quite the “wow” factor. Engraveable jewelry is 15% off for the Mother’’s Day holiday.

About Thomas Sabo

Thomas Sabo was founded in 1984 by Thomas Sabo in Germany. By the end of the 1980’s, it had become one of the premiere silver jewelers in the German-speaking world. Since then, they have continued to expand their product line to include many innovative styles and specialties.

Accent wants to remind you of your individuality. The you that is a compilation of all the things that make you happy, that make your soul smile.
