Spring finally feels like it’s here to stay and with it that familiar buzz of newness and rebirth, the impulse to participate in the growth around you, that you, too, might just bud and bloom. A sort of inexplicable excitement characterizes this time of year—each time you step out of the house, the world is different. Often this season inspires us to take assessment of what we have, what we need, and what’s on our horizons. Though we don’t instinctually think of this time of year as the gift giving season, when you take a larger look at the calendar, it becomes clear that occasions to give gifts abound in the Spring. Here we’ve put together a few ideas for those upcoming occasions so you have more time to spend doing whatever it is that you love 🌻
New from Farmhouse Pottery, these sweet little heart shaped dishes are the perfect way to show mom you love her this Mother’s Day, whether it’s used to hold candy, jewelry, or trinkets from her travels.
Mom’s deserve stylish handbags too! A new spring shipment of bags and wallets from Portland-made Primecut make a great gift to jumpstart her spring style inspo. We're loving the grape cowhide 💜
Another exciting new shipment in the store is S. Carter Jewelry. Their pieces are always stunning, showcasing pave diamonds and found natural elements, and our spring shipment is no exception. Turquoise takes a front seat and adds a fun pop of color that Mom will want to wear all Spring and Summer. (ps - Dads out there -- if you're looking for a super special gift for the mama in your life, there is a diamond ring you need to stop in to see).
Elizabeth Few, our Richmond neighbor, botanically dies silk pieces for the body and home by hand and trust us when we say these are the dreamiest gift you can give Mom. This spring, her work has already been featured on Goop and in Vogue and if that's not enough to convince you, one of the real life moms that works at Roxie Daisy has it on the top of her list.
We strive to have the cards you need and Graduation is no exception. We have a great selection of these in the shop -- because the truth is, new grads at all levels want cash.
Speaking of cash, another great idea for grads is cash inside of something useful -- like a new wallet! We have new wallets from our favorite laser artist, Molly M Designs, on the way. Let us know if you want to be notified when they arrive!
If cash just seems too impersonal, we think the next coolest gift to give the grads is new sunnies from Krewe du Optic. These glasses are handmade in New Orleans and come with a lifetime guarantee on the hardware -- plus the "your future's so bright" pun you can write in the card is almost too good to resist.
More from Farmhouse Pottery, their bowls and serving dishes make excellent wedding and hostess gifts (p.s. did you know we have in-store and online registries? ask us about it!). We also have several of their hand-thrown pitchers, which function as cocktail jugs, sweet tea dispensaries, or downright beautiful flower vases.
For the couple that's hard to buy for, or has everything, we love to recommend John Derian's products. They're full of intrigue and wonder and at the very least make great conversation pieces. Pictured above is his book, which he recommends getting two of so you can cut out prints from one, and keep one in-tact, but we also have a selection of his hand decoupaged trays in stock.
Couples who get married get lots of home-focused gifts -- and that's great, but if you know a couple who has a really fantastic honeymoon planned, try getting them something special for their special trip. We have the perfect washed linen beach/weekend bags, as well as a selection of woven basket bags and totes, and chic passport cases that could elevate their trip just a little bit more.
Have a bridal shower to attend? Lingerie is a go-to, but for the lady who doesn't love a lacy aesthetic, we have beautiful spring nightgowns from Domi -- two styles are even the perfect eggshell blue for her "something blue" 😉
Last but not least, the baby showers -- it seems like everyone we know is either pregnant or a brand new mom these days, so give the gift of style to those babies! Molly M booties are in stock in fun summer colors. Two sizes available.
Whatever the occasion this spring, we think we have the perfect gift for you to give your loved one. Stop by the shop, or give us a call -- we gift wrap all year and are happy to mail gifts as needed.
