Mother’s Day first started in the Middle Ages, when it was customary for people to visit their home and mothers on the 4th Sunday of Lent. Ever since then we’ve continued to pay tribute to our mothers every May, and it’s only right for you to spoil yours this Mother’s Day!

Even though you know her well, you might find yourself stumped on what to give Mom this year. After all, there are only so many times you can buy her the same box of chocolates. (Unless of course they are from Lula’s Chocolates, then that’s always a great choice!)

To give you some other ideas, we’ve put together our list of the best gifts for Mom you can buy at The Crossroads Carmel!

A Beautiful Bouquet

A big, bright, and cheerful bouquet will definitely make Mom smile. If she’s not a fan of bouquets, or you’ve sent her one too many recently, then you can surprise her with a flowering plant. This way, Mom has something that will remind her of you all year long. They also have a great selection of low maintenance succulents if her thumb is more brown than green. 😉

Keep in mind, you don’t have to wait until Mother’s Day to surprise Mom with fresh blooms. Every once in a while, order a beautiful arrangement from Burst & Bloom to let her know you’re thinking of her.

Stylish Clothing & Apparel

Is your mom a fan of luxury European clothing? Then treat her to some new pieces from Debra C

Debra C offers clothing from Italy and Scotland, and you’ll also find accessories from luxury brand names like Armani. Considering that she’s provided fashionable wares to Beverly Hills clients for over 30 years, you can trust that Debra C is bringing only the best to her store.

If you need help picking out anything, count on the professional and friendly staff at Debra C Carmel to assist you.

Gorgeous Jewelry

We think Mom will agree with the sentiment that you can never have too much jewelry! European Jewelers has a wide selection of jewelry, and if you want to really treat her, then check out their special collection, with one of a kind pieces that you won’t find anywhere else. No matter what you pick out, it’ll be unique, as every piece is custom-made.

You can even order keepsake jewelry, in memory of a loved one. Mom will be extremely touched when she unwraps a necklace with her late father’s fingerprint or a charm with her late dog’s paw print on it.

Another great option for jewelry is Weber Goldsmith Gallery. The pieces are handmade by Brad Weber, who’s worked with countless celebrity clients. Weber will take your request and create a one-of-a-kind piece made especially for Mom.

At the shop, they offer pieces from other artisans as well including William Levine and Faberge. If you’re looking for something more exotic, they also have jewelry collections from Hawaii and Europe.

A Fashionable Handbag & Accessories

Handbags are one of the best gifts for Mom because not only are they useful, but they’re fashionable too! (Plus, you can never have too many of them.)

Head over to SHE to find the best handbags for Mom. This high fashion boutique has both American and European designs, so you’re sure to find bags that suit Mom’s personal taste.

They also have clothing, shoes, and accessories. So if you want to spoil Mom a little, get her an assortment of gifts here- you can’t go wrong!

A Heartfelt Card and Stationery

No matter what you get Mom, don’t forget to include a heartfelt card. If you find it hard to express how you feel, check out the selection of cards from Spencer’s Stationery.

Pick out a card that speaks to you and write a short note letting Mom know what she means to you. Not only will she tear up when she reads it, but she’ll also have something to cherish forever. 

Spencer’s Stationery also has gorgeous ribbons, tissues, and other items for wrapping up gifts. You can even pick up journals, customized leather photo albums, and monogramed notepaper.
