Your mom’s big day is coming up, May 13 — even though we hope you’re lavishing her year-round, it’s always nice to have an extra excuse. We have hand-screened gift wrap with vintage ephemera stamped with affirmations so we can swath up something nice for her from our online shop. If your mom likes to smell nice and feel like a fancy lady, you could get her some Pearl+ Soap — sumptuous-smelling soaps made with crushed pearl by our friend Janet Jay — set in a lovely little cedar vessel. You can even get her a subscription where she’ll get a set of these petite soaps every two months.
If your mom is kind of butch, she might be into our wings + horns boxing robes, and if she’s into the wild side, get her a beautiful and scandalous Jeremy Kost book. Maybe she’s an artiste, or she’s a peeping Tom, or she’s a high profile street fashion blogger (and she owns an old Polaroid) — if so, she might be really into this. Or maybe your dad is exploring his gender.
Or you could just stay home and make her a card with crayons in homage to the good old days, or burn your portrait onto her lawn, or get her name tattooed on your neck. The sky’s the limit! But if you want us to send her something, order it by May 9 so we can get it to you in time. And if you have mommy issues, just get something for yourself and wear black. It takes all kinds.
