two if by sea.

gift giving for my mum is rather easy. she likes three things: coffee, flowers and reading. while sister and i would like to get more creative with the gifts – we are really great gift givers – mum would be less than impressed if it didn’t include her top three.

when i look for a gift, local and unique are some of my favourite finds no matter who i am shopping for. since i don’t need to go searching for the perfect present this month, i decided instead to team up with my friends at land & sea to round up a few of my favourite things that you can give to your mum.

wine glass writer

who doesn’t love a glass of wine? but after one too many, you might forget which glass is yours. with these wine glass markers, you can keep an eye on your glass, and have some fun doodling a drunken design.

coutukitsch ivy ring

this double wide design makes a statement. it’s delicate enough to be worn every day, but still bold enough to make a statement.

lug travel wallet

i have a passport holder, but it’s not always the most convenient. it is pretty, though, which is usually my main concern. keeping everything all together to easily access money, cards and your passport would make airports a breeze.

umbra trigg wall vessel

i love these little floating planters, and everything in rose gold gets major points from me. kenzie has three in her foyer and they are just darling!

lamb’s soapworks 

with everything from soaps to bath soaks, lip balm and body lotion, alberta-made lamb’s soapworks is a self-care dream. plus, their scents include black raspberry vanilla, sweet orange & cinnamon, and vanilla cream & coffee – how delicious!

lampe berger

these beautiful scent defusers also act as little art sculptures. i have a chainmail one that’s wearing a crown. it’s rather posh.

what do you think? mum approved?


land & sea wants to share the love with you and your mum, too! they are so graciously giving one s&s reader a $50 gift card.

all you have to do is check out the land & sea collections and let me know in the comments below what you would buy.

the winner will be selected on thursday, may 11. good luck!
