Graduated sterling disks can include the full names of her children. Manya herself is stamping these, so you can get yours in 24 – 48 hours. Add birthstone charms, or a tiny heart. Choose your favorite chain length, and voila! A gift mom will cherish for years to come. Add birthstone charms for $6 each.

A special necklace just for mother

Just delivered Monday, from Kirkland’s Marcia Beck, this charm necklace with a sterling “Mother”, a sterling heart, a pearl and rose quartz is a sweet gift filled with meaning. On an 18″ sterling chain, it’s the perfect length too.

Ideas For Mom #2 – a Great Hat

In the second category for Ideas For Mom, a great hat not only protects her skin from the sun, but also looks great!

Ideas for mom like a great hat from Parkhurst Hats - the Biscayne Bowler
The “Biscayne Bowler” looks great on everyone

Summer is approaching! I know, it doesn’t feel like it right now, but it will be here before we know it. A fun summer hat like the Biscayne Bowler here can be a sun hat for casual, and also dress up an outfit for a garden party. It has SunGuard woven right into the fabric, which protects skin 50 times more than going without it. This hat is available in navy, red and black. It’s crushable too! $34.

Ideas for mom include the Savannah Brim hat from Parkhurst
The “Savannah Brim” is a cotton knit, so soft and comfy

Here’s another wide brim sun hat that’s made of a cotton knit, so is very soft and comfy. It lays completely flat, too, for easy transport. This hat also has SunGuard woven right into the fabric for great sun protection, since our skin cancer rates are quite high. This hat is available in sand and pale yellow.  $38.

Ideas for mom include this awesome Bali Bucket hat from Parkhurst
The Reversible, Adjustable, Crushable Bali Bucket Hat

This next group of hats are similar except for the colors. The “Bali Bucket” hat is a great shape, and the fabric makes it very easy to manipulate the brim however you wish. All four styles are reversible, adjustable and crushable, making them not only good looking, but also versatile. Once again, each has SunGuard woven right into the fabric for maximum protection. $44

Here are two other color palettes it is available in:

The “Dream Jacket” from URU

This simple, gorgeous jacket/wrap is made of textured silk and hand-dyed by URU in California.  It has  independent panels in the front, and a longer panel in the back. Sleeves are nice and wide to continue the drape and flow of the rest of the fabric. Available now in this lovely color, Pacific Blue. Since it is a one-size-fits-all, you don’t have to let that stop you. $225.
