Gifts Mom will Love
posted on April 26th, 2016 by Tiffany Fealings
She’s your #1! You’ve called her countless times for advice, a good laugh, or a favorite recipe. Show Mom your gratitude this Mother’s Day and pay her back with a gift she’ll love! Here are some of our current favorites that you’ll find in stores:
Mud Pie Hydrangea Collection
From serving bowls to cheese boards, this collection features beautiful hydrangea blossoms and are perfect for spring. The rim of this Mango wood salad bowl is flanked with individually crafted metal hydrangea blooms with “gold” tinted centers clustered to form one magnificent blossom. Also available is a mini cheese board with serving knife.
The milk-glazed terracotta pasta bowl features embossed dimensional hydrangea detail and edge resist for a rustic pop of color.
These are perfect pieces for spring and the Mom who loves to entertain.
Anderson Lilley Candles
For Mother’s Day, we are featuring Anderson Lilley candles in four fragrances that represent a few of the cities our stores are located in: Orange Grove is inspired by the citrus of Orange County; Pasadena Rose is, of course, inspired by Pasadena and the Rose Bowl; Santa Monica Surf is inspired by the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica; and Manhattan Beach’s scent is fresh and relaxing.
The complex scents can take months, or years, to create and can contain over 100 different notes to create new memories as well as bring back old ones. These candles are made of a high quality soy blend wax that provides a clean, even burn. The wick is made of a lead-free cotton that is hand measured and pulled for a perfect fit.
What if a candle can light the world? This is what Anderson Lilley has set out to achieve with their many sales contributions to the following organizations: Miller Children’s Hospital, Downtown Women’s Center, Best Friends Animal Society, Lipstick Angels, and Lucas Lilley Foundation. With every purchase of an Anderson Lilley candle, you too are contributing to great causes and organizations.
Stone Candles’ reclaimed bottle candles have been a customer-favorite at Bristol Farms – made with 100% biodegradable vegetable coconut wax in beautiful scents for each season. Moms will love the new additions to the Stone Candle line-up! Stone’s lovely scented candles are now available in gorgeous hobnob glass vases in shades of pink and blue, reminiscent of depression glass.
Beekman 1802 – Farm to Skin
When Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Brent Ridge purchased the historic Beekman 1802 Farm in 2007, they had no idea that it would launch one of the “fastest growing lifestyle brands in the country.” After both men lost their jobs during the recession of 2008, they soon realized they would have to make their farm profitable if they were to save it. They took in a neighboring farmer and his herd of beloved dairy goats. It was then Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell began producing soaps and cheese. As other neighbors taught them how to farm, Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell shared their city-honed skills – starting a website and Mercantile. The men began working with several other local farmers and artisans to market their goods, and the entire village came together to host seasonal festivals, which are now attended by thousands of visitors from around the globe.
Today, the Beekman Boys produce many beautifully fragranced soaps, lotions, shower gels, hand creams, and more. These bath & body products are ones Mom is sure to love. There is nothing more pleasing than the gift of time and pampering products – it gives her a chance to slow down, have self-focus, and feel rejuvenated. It’s good for the soul.
We hope you love these Mother’s Day items we have hand-selected for this special occasion. These are all tested and approved by our team of Moms here at Bristol Farms.
