1. Botanical Journal from Rifle Paper Co. | 2. Claus Porto Blue Guest Soap Pastille Gift Box from Gracious Style | 3. Heart Wood Board from Fishs Eddy | 4. Gold Vermeil Forget Me Knot Ring from White Fly | 5. Hen + Chick Growing Kit from Red Envelope | 6. Tea Honey from Savannah Bee Company

I developed an obsession with caterpillars in first grade after learning about how they transform into beautiful butterflies, and one day I spent an entire recess collecting the fuzzy critters and placing them in my lunchbox to take home as pets. I promptly forgot about all of this by the time I got home and handed my lunchbox over to my mother. Let’s just say I’m surprised she didn’t immediately give me up for adoption after opening it up to find a whooole lot of dead caterpillars. Surprise!! She deserves all of these gifts (and much much more) for Mother’s Day next Sunday.

    Such a perfect round up of mom-worthy gifts!

  5. Ha! Yes, our mothers are worthy of sainthood! They’re also kind of tough to shop for, so loving these ideas. I’m far away from home, so relying on my brother to pick up the perfect gift from the both of us… might have to email this collage his way!

    Gloria, you have outdone yourself (according to my taste at least)! I already forwarded your post onto my husband… it could honestly have the title “Perfect gifts for Jackie.”
