The best shop small gifts for your mom, mother-in-law, or friend is HERE!
Mothers have the most essential and demanding job when you stop and think about it. A lifetime of love and commitment to a child’s well-being is a monumental undertaking: recognize this often, and especially on Mother’s Day.
Take the time to give a thoughtful gift. Add to the meaning of Mother’s day by celebrating and supporting women entrepreneurs.
Buy gifts from family owned businesses founded by Women.
Best Shop Small gifts include these !
The best gifts are well-considered. They are selected with care and made to last. The best shop small gift guide I share today, consists of gifts from three small family businesses, founded by women.
One such company is KC Signatures. If you have been reading my blog for a while you know this company is a favorite of mine. Nina is a visionary, a creative and dynamic woman who started her family owned business in 2005 . Nina is inspired by her extensive foreign travels and the skill set of each specific locale. Passionate about distinctive gifts, Nina concentrates on artisan crafted textiles, gorgeous beach tunics and jewelry that is a cut above. She is detail oriented and it shows. Her daughter and husband join her in this splendid venture.
Gift idea no.1 is a sweet” Love” necklace in script that says it all. In precious gold over sterling this pieces is $72.00
Gift Idea No.2 is from Jemily.com, a small but impeccably curated collection of gorgeous jewels set artfully in eighteen carat gold.
Swooning over a favorite collection of mine, which captures refracted light in varied shimmering hues, boasting hand-selected gems and 18K gold, inviting the eye to follow and delight in the delicate arc of this design aesthetic . The piece below is rare, and can be customized to be one of a kind. Jemily’s designs are worn internationally, by women-in-the-know who value the rarity of their jewelry. A polished teardrop cabochon is a unique rutilated tourmaline.
Black.co.uk is another family owned business that carries the loveliest gifts for any woman in your life. Founded by Paula Reeves, this company was created after an illness compromised her notable career as a TV journalist and marketing consultant. BLACK is an acronym for BLACK. LUXURY. ACCESSORIES. CRAFTED. & KEENLY PRICED. The selection criterion is based on lasting luxury and not fashion that fades. Hmm. Sounds like a familiar credo! This company, too champions the rare and artisanal, and boasts a great many,” best shop small gifts.”
Below from Black.co.uk, AT $93.91 USD, gift N0.3 is the Crane Bird print Silk Scarf
Animal Print Italian Luxury Double Canopy Umbrella is the next shop small gift idea. PRICED AT $215.03 , gift No.4 is beyond chic!
SPLENDID SHELTER FROM THE STORMS OF LIFE. WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE!
OF COURSE, I INCLUDE THE AFFORDABLE, TOO, IN BEST SHOP SMALL GIFTS – AS SUGGESTIONS FOR YOUR MOM AND YOUR WALLET! THIS IMITATION PEARL AND CRYSTAL PENDANT IS $18.00, FROM KC SIGNATURES.COM. GORGEOUS, NO? YES!
STUNNING BAROQUE PEARLS ADD LUSTER TO ANY OUTFIT. THIS STRING IS $380 AND WOULD MAKE AN ELEGANT GIFT.
Above the pink leather earrings sport the freshest color of the season and are lightweight in this whip-stitched leather . The silk scarf is reversible from lavender to purple and the saturated colors of this luxurious layer is another wonderful gift idea. Earrings are $29.99 and the scarf is $99.00.
Last, but not least – this selection from my gift guide is sure to please. While these earrings are costume, they are designed in rich colors, juxtaposed unexpectedly to make one fabulous pair of statement earrings. Priced at $135.00 these would be mine if only I could wear pierced earrings!
So readers, what are you thinking about giving your special mom, or yourself, if you are a mom. YES, I have done that! I hope you also value the ethos of the shop small movement and will consider this as you buy make your choice. Choose well for your cherished MOM, Mother -in- law or friend who is a mother, or hoping to be. More shopping tips are here.
What would you include in a guide for Best Shop Small Gifts for Mother’s Day? Remember, sometimes just a home made card is sweet gesture, and an offer to do an errand is a great gift as well. Brunch out is a good idea, too. A card in lieu of a gift is very much appreciated as any mom can tell you. Any gift or gesture that demonstrates sincere and grateful sentiment is perfect.
My favorite gift is a piece of pottery that my daughter made for me at camp. A blue heart , simply stating MOM. How I treasure it!
Tell me, what is on your wish list? Happy Monday, dear readers!
It’s so nice when you find something meaningful for mom!! I saw the funniest saying the other day: “she gave you life, and you give her a mug?”
Yes, I saw that same mug on a shopping site ! Lol !
I completely support your ethos of “shop small and local” – I try to do that every day! I usually find my mom something small (almost always second hand or local), but for the last several years I have given her dates: season tickets to the local theatre and dinner after. We’ve always done theatre together, and it remains a big pleasure for both of us to connect over. We’re going this weekend!
A great reminder, Elle! A happy Mother’s Day to you!
I know and I appreciate that about you ! Theater together is a great treat with dinner afterwards. I used to go to brunch with my mom was she was still with us, it was always fun. Sometimes we would all go to TJ MAXX together afterwords!
Enjoy this weekend!
Hahaha, sorry, Jodie s comment made me laugh! Fantastic Umbrella!
Yes she also made me laugh,
Enjoy your week!
Lovely pieces, all original. I adore the baroque pearls. Thanks for showing us these lovelies, xox
Original is always good!
Have a wonderful day!
Such a great selection. I´m so in love with all jewelry pieces.
Me too Daria !
I would love one of each…in my next life perhaps. .
These are all such great mother’s day gifts! Lovely!
I am glad you agree. Enjoy your day!
Loving the jewellery, especially the two pendants, and the scarf is so pretty. I wish I still had my Mum to buy presents for. It’s been almost 17 years now, but I seem to miss her more the older I get, so mother’s day is always quite poignant for me. xxx
I am so sorry Ann.
My mom has also been gone for many years, and it is a holiday with mixed emotions for sure. My mother in law, actually, I have two of them, are alive and well, so I am lucky in that way, also my children are always particularly thoughtful for this holiday.
17 years is such a long time…. hugs.

Glad to see you here ,
I love how you have woven everything together in this blogpost. It is all very thoughtful and beautiful. Of all the shown gifts, I love the umbrella most, both the design and the accompanying text: SPLENDID SHELTER FROM THE STORMS OF LIFE. WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE!
How like you to note that and comment on it. Sometimes I feel like I am writing into a void…so thank you very much.
Good idea to shop small. These are pretty pieces!
Straight A Style

Lovely presents, but my mom will be 90 in August and doesn’t desire any presents. So Ron and I will give her the thing that she loves most, we will visit her on Mother’s day.

I am so happy you liked these choices. I hope you have a happy mother’s day!
My mother is very old now and I am not sure she always understand me but when I watch her tired eyes I can still see her love…
What a beautiful sentiment Dan! I feel the same, I still feel almost as if my mom is still here!
Lovely gift ideas for Mom! That animal print umbrella is so fun!
I just got an early delivery from my far-away daughter of flowers and chocolates, so I’m enjoying those.
Yes to thoughtful gifts and early ones at that!
Happy Mother’s day!

Happy Mother’s Day dear Elle! I love your choices! The pearls are lovely as is all of your selections! i collaborated with Black.Uk and just love their cashmere pieces.
