It's true Mom deserves to be celebrated all year long, but it still seems like Mother's Day sneaks up on us doesn't it? If you've found yourself here, you're probably past finger paintings or macaroni necklaces and are looking for a special "something". Lucky you, we've curated a few Mother's Day Gift options for every budget and BEST of all, they're in stock and READY TO SHIP for the big day. (Which is May 9th this year by the way.)
Every year our Mother and Child book sells out, and it's easy to see why. Vogue magazine notes "Page after page brings sun dappled photos of lightly-clothed bodies—little between a mother and child’s embrace. "
Author and photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank sets out to explore modern motherhood in this gorgeous book. Turning her lens to 70 iconic families like Delfina Figueras, Carolina Herrera, Patti Hansen, and MORE, Frank’s portraits capture the emotional bonds and beauty that frame the relationship of a mother and her child. Complementing her work is a series of questions and answers, which prompts each mother to look within and express what being a mother truly means. The answers, while thoughtful, are also amusing and moving. Each of these intimate portraits will inspire readers and remind us all of the power of Motherhood and of a Mother's Love. - $95.00
If you're a Quirks regular, you know that we do not recommend gifts without including a Spiritile pick. They are our BEST SELLING gift after all. If you've never met a Spiritile before, let us introduce you in a nutshell. Each sculpture is made to order in artists Houston Llew's US studio with enameled glass and copper. They're so luminous, it's almost like they glow. The design on the face of each tile is stunning alone, but each also features a meaningful "story" on the edges. Read by turning the tile in your hands, or by admiring it displayed on a shelf or wall. We could go on and on about how much we love Spiritiles and our friend Houston Llew. (Seriously.) If you'd like to learn more, or see tiles "in person", we're happy to send a video your way. Just reach out!
For Mother's Day 2021, we're recommending Nurture Spiritile #248. It features a gorgeous flower design, and we love giving Mom flowers. The story reads "The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart." - Elisabeth Foley. Now, don't let the friendship quote make you put this beautiful design down. There comes that point in so many of our relationships with Mom when you realize she is your most faithful and loving friend, and often that journey is hard fought. Celebrate it! - $149.00
There's something for every Mom in artist Tracy Pesche's new ceramic collection. Generously sized tea cups and coffee mugs, cute ceramic frames and even mini planters perfect for kitchen herbs or succulents, we've got Mom sorted. We're really happy with the quality, sizing and quirky personality these gifts bring to the party. They manage to feel both modern and rustic at the same time, complimenting any home or kitchen's decor. - Starting at $18.95
Our Mother Angel Figurine is a beautiful hand-sculpted resin angel, adorned with metal wings, and designed by artist Kelly Rae Roberts. Detailed with delicate dimentional patterns and featuring an encouraging quote, it reads "Dear Mom, forever blessed by your heart, presence & guidance in my life." It's like a Mother's Day Card she can keep on her shelf all year long. - $29.95
Another Quirks Fan Favorite, our Lori Mitchell Holiday Figurines are a fantastic gift pick. Our nautical and patriotic summer pieces are ready to go in the post right away, and we even have curated mini collections so you know which characters compliment each other best. Just add one or more to a table with flowers and you have an instant, festive display. (If Mom's really into holiday decorating we even have a few Halloween and Christmas designs in stock.) -Starting at $24.95 each.
Last, but not least, is our Lipstick & Chrome "Portrait of a Plant Lady" brooch. (Designed in house by your girls at Quirks!) A brooch always makes a great gift, and this lady, inspired by vintage ceramic "lady head" vases REALLY HOLDS FLOWERS! For real. She features a little hole at the top of her hat to insert a real or fake flower of your choosing. To make it easy we do include a few flowers in complimentary colors. *Click here to see a quick video with flowers. Mom will love wearing this sweet pin on her blazer or coat, it's a real conversation starter. - $29.95
