A mother’s life is immensely fulfilling, but to be honest, can sometimes feel a bit ordinary (i.e. wash, rinse, repeat; wash, rinse, repeat). If there is a woman in your life who dreams of the exotic, why not bring her the spoils of adventure around the globe? I’m thinking that a bit of India, Morocco and France will bring a sparkle to her eyes…
Mom in Morocco
Bring her the brightness of the sea, the sparkle of a million mosaic tiles and the nurture of ancient ways. Start with our bold and timeless Sultan’s Palace print, this time in a throw pillow. Pillows and cushions are wonderful ways to add color, texture and flair to a room without breaking the bank. A few of these strewn on sofas, the bed, or on the floor would make the perfect inspiration for Mom’s new global look. (You can see our entire collection of pillows here!)
Add in a spring-infused Moroccan made scarf and soothing Argan oil (great for both hair and skin!), and mom will feel just a step away from her dreamy destination.
Mom in India
Now, it’s off to that world within the world, the vast and varied, bright and bustling land of India. Our sari-inspired India Rose euro sham is a perfect souvenir… coral pink and detailed in purple and cream, this pillow is feminine and glamorous and distinctively global.
You may need to buy two pairs of these lovely Filigree Paisley earrings from Noonday Collection – one pair for you, and one for mom. They’re so gorgeous, it would be hard to not wear them yourself! But mom will love them, and feel like a queen adorned in finery. If she loves to adorn her walls as well, an intricate watercolor from Cate Parr will transport her boudoir from ordinary to exotic in the time it takes to hang it on the wall.
Does Mom really love pink? She might be interested in something else in this cheery hue from our India Rose collection!)
Mom in France
In our last stop on the world tour, we’ll take mom to Paris. Top her bed with our French fusion pillow in mellow yellow with turquoise and tangerine diadems, and she’ll ask for a croissant and feel she’s gone to the Parisian section of heaven. (Check out our entire collection of Morning Dew beauties here! )
Perhaps, though, the hint of Pois de Senteur (or Sweet Pea) wafting through the air and the glimmer of quatrefoil earrings through her hair will inspire Dad to take her out to the finest five star French place in town… either way, Mom will certainly say, “Merci”!
Surveys show that 9 out of 10 moms would rather have something unique and hand made rather than another box of candy or a generic card. (Just kidding, no scientific surveys here. :)) But really, this year, show mom how much you appreciate everything she does at home by bringing the world to her fingertips. Give her a global makeover!
