Colorful Mother’s Day Gifts: Bright, Breezy Blues

Saffron Marigold - Updated: April 12, 2019

Little ones love to ask their moms this question: “What’s your favorite color?” If your mom would answer blue, then she probably loves a good mix of serenity and expansive freedom. For Mother’s Day this year, we’ve put together a collection of a few of our blues. Granted, there are many more, but we selected a handful and curated gift ideas around the color and feel of each print.  There’s the soft sky and turquoise of Moonlit Taj, the Prussian Blue of Midnight Lotus, and the indigo of Pacific Blue.  Take a look at each collection, and choose something that looks like it would be your mom’s favorite blue!

Moonlit Taj Turquoise Blues

Soft and ultra feminine, the pale blue, grass green and white ground of Moonlit Taj curtains creates a spacious, clean look wherever they’re hung.  Give a nod to the freshness of this decor with complementary pieces like an intricate frame, exquisite jars or a sweet candle.  Let mom take her color on the road with a handmade necklace from Noonday Collection in the same hue.

Midnight Lotus Blues

Mom will love the look of gorgeously filtered light that fills her home when she hangs her cottony Midnight Lotus curtains.  It will remind her of perfectly blue skies, even if the day is cloudy.  Reminiscent of white and blue floral Chinese pottery, the pattern on this curtain (which is the reverse of our standard Midnight Lotus) lends itself to cool, intricate eastern decor.  Wonder what mom will like best?

Deep Pacific Blues

Eastern and nautical, this print is for the mom who loves her blue deep, vibrant and alive.  She’ll enjoy the rich indigo that marks each gift in this collection and will wonder at your gift-giving prowess when she hangs her curtain and heads out in her handmade indigo finery.  It’s never too late to earn points with mom!

My own kids ask me about my favorite color frequently. They know that I answer them differently depending on the day. Most often though, my answer is blue. I just can’t get away from the easiness, the range and the depth of blue. And while it’s so, so hard to choose a favorite Saffron Marigold print (please don’t try to pin me down!) today, I love the blues most of all. There’s a good chance your mom will love them too!

Just in time for Mother’s Day, we have put together some inspiring ways to tell Mom “thanks for everything” and for expressing love and gratitude to her. We’ll focus on high quality, hand made items, do-it-yourself projects and special recipes. These reflect our commitment to the personal touch–in our handcrafted linens, our genuine dedication to customer service and our belief that you find joy in what comes from heart and hand.
