Here, two chic shopkeeper moms, Ann Huff & Meg Harrington of Huff Harrington Home, the new home design and gift store in Buckhead, share their Mother's Day "have to have" items. More info: www.huffharrington.com.
There’s nothing more chic and clever than disposable, biodegradable – and cute – cocktail napkins that come on a roll (pictured at right). And yes, you really can throw them away when your party is over. They also come in dinner napkins and placemats – and in lots of gorgeous colors. From $26.50.
The Corkcicle: a completely brilliant invention: just place a frozen corkcicle in your bottle of white or red and it stays perfectly chilled. $24.99.
French linens: nothing says oh la la like a table set with French-inspired linens. Ours come in soft and subtle patterns and hues and promise to make any table extra special. From $8.00.
Adorable leather wallets: we found these in Paris and couldn’t live without their unusual design and wonderful colors. $190.00
Super soft French ballet flats that fold in half for perfect traveling. Lots of yummy colors. From $175.00
We couldn’t resist these Nantucket-inspired woven bags (pictured at left) with sassy little bows and embellishments. Tres stylish. From $117.00.
We’re crazy about these POP handsets (pictured at right) that have a cool, chic and retro feel to them. Just plug them into your iPhone or Blackberry and voila! Available in several different bright, fun colors. $36.00.
For the Mom who Just Wants to Relax:
Convince her to curl up on a comfy sofa with a selection of organic Bellocq teas (from $38.00) and a gorgeous coffee table book that will transport her to another world.
Ice Milk Aprons (from $35), locally made right here in Atlanta, are a fun way for mom to stay stylish in the kitchen. Each one is hand made and "served" in a whimsical Mason jar (pictured at left).
A glowing candle can add charm and ambience to even the most simple gathering. Why not share deliciously scented Vance Kitira candles with mom - in classic cylinders or cute pears - starting at $6.
No matter what gift you choose, mom will be touched, knowing you took the time to show her how much you care. Happy Mother's Day!
