GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
…and she loves to show it. See, all it really means is individualized—and, often, fun. This mom believes that most of us could use more fun in our lives.
Mom might be a tad dizzy if she stares at this clock too long. But she’ll love the checkered black and white wall clock. Battery operated; in round and square shapes.
Or, the Monogrammed black and white wall clocks might be more her style. Also in round and square.
Perhaps she’d prefer the Picture Wall Clock. Twelve photo frames surround the clock. This clock could please new moms to great grandmothers.
These little piggy bookends can hold Mom’s cookbooks in the kitchen or prop up literature in the study. Gleaming gold covers this fine swine sculpture. His cute upturned snout should bring on a smile every time.
Might Mom adore these INCONVENIENT KITTY TUMBLERS? Especially if she loves cats. Set of four with four different tableaus showing cats, well, being cats-like “slumber party” with a kitty gently waking its human.
The Customized Beach In A Box allows you to insert a personal
message to Mom. A message written in sand from a Maine beach top Maine seashells and sea glass. All in a frame composed of beach driftwood. Each frame is one of a kind. Bonus, if she loves Maine/New England or is an ex-pat.

This one might remind her of fond (wild?) beach memories:
The Smiling Veggies Spreader Set will be adorable on her counter. When Mom puts these on serving trays, they’ll delight her guests.
The Heart Dish makes a beautiful display alone or crowded with Mom’s goodies, whether treats or trinkets. In royal purple and translucent lilac. The handcrafted copper heart crowning the dish includes semi-precious stones and metal.
The Hanging Aquarium is not only an unusual conversation piece, it could be a stress reliever for Mom.

The 1 ½” Hula Girl Decoupage Lapel Pin declares her independent sensibilities to all.
Some believe that the Lucky Cat Family ushers in luck, wealth and prosperity. At any rate, it’s cute and a convo starter. The hand painted figurine also doubles as a bank.
Light her way at night with the Creative Light Slippers. No more stumped toes.

The Log Cabin Birdhouse Wind Chime could serenade Mom as she sips refreshments on the patio. If she’s a bird watcher, she gets a double treat.
Hopefully, you found something that fits your mom to a kitschy T. If not, you have some ideas to expand on.
