Last Minute Gifts - How to decide what to get for your Mom!

Capital City Antique MallComment

If you waited until the last minute to buy a gift for your sweet Mum - our collection is vast enough to cover the interests of a million moms. Don't believe me - scroll through our list to determine the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

If your Mom collects multiple sets of bone china, uses copper bowls because they make fluffier egg whites, and understands basic french and chemistry because she learned it from a cookbook - she needs a gift fit for JULIA CHILD!  If she knows a mandolin is not just an instrument and julienne is a cut and not just a girls name - then a new kitchen goodie is what she needs.  Think Jadeite, corning ware, a vintage hand mixer or embroidered apron for her next culinary adventure!

These bowls are from here but we have a large collection of glassware in the store from bowls to butterdishes in lots of colors not just green.

Now if cooking leaves your Mom a little bored. Maybe you should consider something more fabulous and turn to a woman's best friend...the diamond. Or at least her shiny imposter cousin the rhinestone! So your mom needs a gift fit for GRACE KELLY! Super chic - and completely wearable - whether for a Sunday Brunch or that opera she has been dying to see - these sparkling jewels from the past will transform her into royalty!

If all of these ideas aren't quite your mom...then look to her hobbies for a clue. If she loves to make green things grow - and spends all of her time in the garden. Perhaps a creative container for one of her favorite flowering plants, or even a vintage trowel or bucket to round out her garden tool collection.  

No matter what you find for your mom - whether it is a hand embroidered handkerchief, bicycle bell, or a tiny glass figurine from the 1930's - she will love it because it comes from the best gift of all...YOU! Our gratitude and love goes out to the women who raised us, the women who influenced us as teachers or mentors  - and the women who continue to bring love and purpose into our lives regardless of our relations! Happy Mother's Day!
