Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts & A Great Giveaway!

I don’t know about you guys, but time is FLYING for me lately.  And when I’m in that warp-speed phase of life I tend to forget things- dates, names, what I’m doing, holidays….. Now, don’t worry Mom, I prepared this year- but in case you guys are all “Shoot! It’s Mother’s Day this weekend??” here are some ideas that are available right now!


1. Sometimes online flower delivery companies bring….ahem, less then stylish bouquets.  But this simple peony arrangement in a mint julep cup is simply gorgeous.

2. Wine. Always. Forever. Pick up on your way to visit, you ARE the reason she drinks after all…. ;)

3. A great book about hand-me-downs and familial style, Heirloom Modern via (overnight it!) or pop into a local book store!

4. Cupcakes! Bake them yourself, or buy a box at one of the zillion cupcake shops out there now. No one hates cupcakes.

5. I have this great popover top from J.Crew and LOVE it (wore it here-follow me!).  Flattering on everyone and ageless… oh, and in stock in your local store.

6. A Stella & Dot gift certificate delivered to her inbox instantly! So many fun new things including scarves and bags!

One of you can give your Mom (or yourself perhaps, if you are a tired Mom, or need a break from your Mom, or are trying to become a Mom ….ba-dum-dum!!) a $200 gift certificate for a getaway to the English Meadow Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine!  Andrew and I like to jet up there for a little quiet getaway by the ocean and luck you can now have the opportunity to go or give a getaway to someone deserving.  Just like their page on Facebook and leave a comment about which room you’d hope to stay in. I’ll pick the winner and email them TOMORROW AFTERNOON AT 4PM (just in case you do want to give this as a gift!)

And this is Bailey the inn’s Goldendoodle. I love him and every time I go I threaten to steal him.



  1. I would love to stay in the Tranquility Suite …. Or honestly any suite would be wonderful to stay in they all look amazing !!!
    Well I hope everyone has a Wonderful Mother’s Day!!!!!

  2. I would love to stay in the Tranquility Suite …. But honestly any suite would be wonderful to stay in they all look amazing !!!
    Well I hope everyone has a Wonderful Mother’s Day!!!!!

  3. Now that is gorgeous! I would stay in the Tranquility Suite. Looooove the colors, and heaven knows I could use some tranquility!

  4. Not sure if you already picked a winner, but I would love to stay in the Tranquility suite! The property looks amazing and I have always wanted to go to Kennebunkport for a real lobster roll!

  5. I would love to put my mom in any of those rooms. they are beautiful and look relaxing

  6. Erin,

    Random question – where did you purchase the sunglasses you are wearing in the Instagram photo? They look fab!


  7. Hmmmm… a toughie, I’d probably go with the Tranquility Suite because I love blue and that balcony would be great for sipping my morning Joe. HOWEVER, I love garden views so maybe that I’d “settle” for the Quiet Moments suite! Yes, I am commenting even if you already found a winner. I just found your blog and I love your taste! So, even if I don’t win the Kennebunk stay for my mother and I, I am getting that JCrew shirt for my mom… she’ll love it! Thanks!!
