Mother’s Day is May 14th and it’s “May”hem at Al’s Garden & Home!
Continue the annual family tradition of coming into one of our four locations because we have you covered for mom, mothers-in-law, colleagues, or friends who are mothers. We are so lucky to have them in our lives! Whether your loved one is a fashionista, plant enthusiast, self-care/spa lover, or a food and wine connoisseur, our selection of gifts and gift card denominations will exceed expectations.
Our staff shared some fabulous gift ideas they are buying for Mother’s Day.
Jewelry Lover (Candace): Who doesn’t appreciate a little sparkle? A little bling? Candace’s favorite jewelry from Scout are the Intention Charm necklaces. “Best jewelry for a timeless, classic look at a perfect price point. I also love the fact they give 10% of their profit back to organizations that support women,” said Candace, Buyer at Al’s. These unique pieces are delicate, dipped in 14K gold or sterling silver, adorned with semi-precious stones. Choose the Stone of Healing, Joy, or Balance for that special mom. “I love pairing a necklace with a bracelet and giving it to my girlfriends. It makes them feel special because they are.” Great pieces to pair with are the Good Karma Miyuki bracelets or Floating Stone earrings in Stones of Magic, Good Fortune, Courage, or Harmony; all pieces also dipped in gold or sterling silver
Fashionista (Aaron): “My wife is a great mother and loves the clothing selection at Al’s. I always come out on top when I give her an outfit from Habitat or Tribal,” expressed Aaron, Buyer at Al’s. The selections are amazing! Pair a cute tank dress with a cropped jacket. If she enjoys a more casual approach, there are a myriad of combinations of lightweight sweaters or colorful, gorgeous tops with a smart pair of cargo pants. Complete any look with a fashionable handbag and accessories to show off her personal style!
Spa & Self-Care Indulger (Mark): If your mom loves to pamper herself, check out our lightly scented lotions, fine milled soaps, and romantic candles. “My wife is “Superwoman,” expressed Mark, Co-Owner/COO of Al’s Garden & Home. She works, cares for our family, and deserves to relax and unwind.” For a luxurious bath or shower, Spongelle soap buffers for the body and feet, come pre-filled with soap scents like French Lavender, Beach Grass, Coconut Verbena, and Bulgarian Rose. They are vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and recyclable. Mark also chose Mistral French milled soap with complex fragrance, blended with shea butter, or argan oil for silky, fragrant skin. To follow up with the luxurious self-care routine, he chose a rich scented lotion from Le Chatelaine. To complete the relaxing mood, exquisitely packaged lightly scented candle.
Plant Enthusiast (Jen): Jennifer’s mom loves plants and gardening. She bought her a dahlias and lavender and planted them in a mixed container. “My mom gardens because she thoroughly enjoys designing her garden spaces. It’s good for her soul. She doesn’t mind the compliments from her neighbors!” stated Jennifer, Director of Marketing at Al’s. Your mother may prefer an exotic plant like an orchid or a Grown by Al’s hydrangea. Combine her plant with an Accent plant pot or a gardening kit so she can grow her own plants. Mom can plant her hydrangea or dahlias outdoors after they finish blooming as they will rebloom big and beautiful next year. Other plants to consider are our gorgeous hanging baskets and fuchsia baskets in a variety of sizes. A low-maintenance yet beautiful option is a succulent bowl to beautify her home.
Wine/Food Connoisseur (Annie): Annie is the fourth generation at Al’s, Visual Marketing. She knows exactly what her mom would enjoy. “My mom truly loves a glass of wine after a long day at work,” said Annie. “Her vibe is pairing it with something a little sweet after a meal.” She chose a bottle of Argyle Rosé and a floral Corksicle to keep her wine chilled along with McCrea’s Caramels. If caramels and rosé isn’t your loved one’s combo of choice, Al’s offers an assortment of reds and whites from Argyle, Rain Dance, and Seven Bridges …….and varieties of chocolate!
Show how much you appreciate her on this special day. During Mother’s Day weekend, May 13-14, we will be serving Argyle Vintage Brut mimosas ($10 each) at Sip at Al’s of Sherwood. Overall, the key is to choose a gift that matches your mom's personality and interests. Having a difficult time choosing? An Al’s gift card is always a winner! Al’s Garden & Home delivers on a truly memorable experience on this special holiday.
Happy Mother’s Day to ALL mothers in our lives!
