I am ALWAYS a last minute Mother's Day shopper. My mom can attest to that. She's often surprised when she gets it the day after Mother's Day. So with the holiday creeping up, I'm sharing my favorite five items to pick up at Pear Tree so you're not scrambling last minute like me.

Recipe Box & Recipe Cards

For a mom who likes to cook - or one that could use some new recipes - I think this is the perfect way to say I love you ... and can you cook for me? It's also a really sweet way to revive some family recipes that may have gotten lost. Copy them onto some recipe cards, tuck them in the box, and this just became one very thoughtful gift.

S Formulators Lotion Decanter

My mom is a Bath & Body Works junkie (sorry, mom). So if I want to get her something different and unique, this is really the way to go. Not only is this a wonderful candle, but the soy wax burns at a low temperature and can be poured into your hand and used as a lotion. No joke! It's amazing and makes the skin so smooth!

Cosmetic Bag, Red Staggerwing

For a mom who has lots of odds and ends or a counter full of cosmetics, these bags are amazing AND made right here in New Hampshire. Her fabrics are curated from artisans in Africa and the inside of each is made with fun prints in PVC coated cotton so they're easy to clean.

SHOP: Come in store because prints are unique and limited.

Lightweight Summer Tunics

With warmer weather around the corner, giving mom something new to wear is perfect to kick off her summer wardrobe. My mom is in Florida, so these tunics are perfect. Now, which colors to get?!

Wine, Charms, and Custom Glasses

This is my FAVORITE of all five of my picks. Alysun Grondin does beautiful work painting our wine glasses and I love that she takes custom orders. I will say I've purchased quite a few sets from her and I have loved every single one. Paired with a set of wine charms from Heidi Pauer and a bottle of vino from Dover Wine and Brew it's the perfect sit back and relax gift for mom.

SHOP: Stop into Pear Tree or email us to order a custom set of Alysun's glasses ($30 for a set).
