Does anyone else feel like April is flying by?! I can't believe in just a couple of weeks it's going to be May! Here in Chicago, we can't always count on great wether in May, but we do get to celebrate our moms because if you're like me, there aren't enough words I can say that could express how thankful I am that I can always count on my mom! We want to celebrate our moms and women everywhere with gifts that empower and provide opportunities for families to thrive. To get the celebration going, we came up with a little gift guide for all the moms out there...any age, any style, we've got you covered!
For the moms who like to make a statement, like a little pop of color, or, or have a little edginess to her style, I love these two pieces as gifts. The Color Block Warrior Bracelet, with it's geometric lines and cool lattice closure, is the perfect piece for making a bold, but chic statement. And the Extra Small Beaded Hoops are a perfect pairing, or a thoughtful gift for that mom you just want to get a little something for!
I love these two pieces for just about anyone! If your mom's style is more traditional and timeless, and you want to get her something special, either of these handmade accessories are great choices. The Warrior Wrap Bracelet is dainty, goes with any outfit (and any occasion!), but the best part is the strong magnetic closure - it is super easy to put on! Our Mara Scarf (comes in Melon and Gray as well) is handwoven in Kenya and is the perfect spring color. You can never have too many scarves...especially if you're in a climate like Chicago where you're never sure if you'll be warm enough! ;)
I have so many friends with little ones who always say they can't wear jewelry because their kids are always pulling at it, but I thought our Elastic Tassel Bracelet could be the perfect exception to that rule! You can wear it with your watch, on its own, or part of an arm party - this will brighten up any outfit - including your yoga pants and t-shirt! I also chose our awesome Amboseli Tote for new moms because of how much room it has. With one pocket divider, this bag is the perfect catch-all for a day out with the kids!
What mom isn't on-the-go?! Whether your mom is a world traveler, a working mom, or always out the door going here or there, these are two of my favorite pieces in our spring collection! Our Moshi Tote is my go-to bag for traveling, but is also a great summer bag for farmers markets and beach days. And last but not least, the amazing Tear Drop Earrings! These are even more fantastic in person than they are in the pictures! Dainty, incredibly lightweight, and the perfect amount of statement!
Whatever you choose, know that your purchases are enabling small businesses in Tanzania, Kenya, and Peru to grow and thrive. Happy Mother's Day to all of the amazing moms in the Zuri community! xo
