Unique Christmas Gifts for Mom
December 11 2014
Our boutique is full of unique Christmas gifts for mom this season. Getting your mom something from our shop means that she’ll receive a piece that is handmade, one-of-a-kind, and full of character. Last week we posted our complete holiday gift guide, here’s a little more back story on our unique Christmas gifts for mom.
1) Unique Christmas Gift for Mom Idea: Home Décor
These hand block printed cushion covers can easily make couch throw pillows more exciting. To make a block printed cover, experts carve designs into wooden blocks, cover them in natural dyes, and then press them on fabric. This blue cover with red flowers was handmade in India by Anokhi with the same passion that it will bring to your mother’s family or living room.
Another one of our home décor gift ideas for your mom is a Woounan basket from Panamá. Decorated with a hummingbird and orchid, this woven basket is sturdy. In fact, earlier this year we declared that Woounan baskets are the “best made in the entire world” on our blog. Made by women in the Woounan tribe who dwell in the Darién Rainforest, tribe members travel long distances in dense jungle just to obtain weaving materials from the chunga palm tree. The finest 10-inch baskets take a year to make, with larger ones taking much longer.
2) Unique Christmas Gift for Mom Idea: Jewelry
If you’re looking for jewelry gift ideas for mom, these blue crocheted earrings come from one of our favorite French designers, Satellite, a boutique in Paris. Accented with Swarovski crystals, these earrings are charming, stylish, and will draw lots of attention. Moms who love wearing colorful pieces will be delighted by these earrings.
If your mother is more interested in muted tones, consider buying her a bracelet by AMARO, an Israeli designer. While the gemstone bracelet we listed in the gift guide last week has since sold out, a similar but equally enchanting item, the “primitive bracelet” is still available. Each AMARO piece comes with a spiritual meaning. Gold plated, this bracelet combines black onyx, tahiti, and snowflake obsidian stones to represent desert stories of the middle-east.
3) Unique Christmas Gift for Mom Idea: Scarves
Finally, if you’d like to get your mom a unique gift that keeps her warm, consider purchasing her one of our alpaca scarves. Hand-woven in Peru, these scarves are durable and can be styled a variety of ways with many different outfits. Perhaps the most versatile option in our holiday gift guide, she will love getting to decide how to wear these scarves, and how cozy they will keep her throughout the year.
