Carry It All

One of our most recent artists, Banana Cottage, hails from Petaluma and specializes in beautifully hand-sewn Linen Clutches! With three different designs to choose from and a plethora of colors, these little bags are sure to be the perfect on-the-go-to for mom. When she’s in need of something a little heftier, the Shopper Totes by Blue Q are sure to do the trick. These big totes are day out of the house, adorned with beautiful artwork by various artists and measuring in at over a foot in height & width!

Shinies & More

With so much amazing jewelry to choose from at the shop, it can be hard to narrow down the selection.Most recently added to our collection of shining pieces are the hand-stamped necklaces by cut.color.create, based right here in Alameda! Joy Complex, based out of Pennsylvania, has created a brilliantly one-of-a-kind gift that mom is sure to love. After taking his voice recording of “I love you,” Joy Complex renders the soundwave into a 3D image and then prints that into a beautiful raw bronze pendant that’s ready to be worn. If your mom prefers her jewelry a bit more lightweight, speesheez has some amazing hand-died, cut and assembled lace jewelry that is sure to dazzle!

Moms-To-Be

As per usual, we love thinking mothers in every stage of motherhood. If you have that mom-to-be to buy for, Nikki McClure has some beautifully illustrated Journals that are perfect. Embrace follows a mother through her pregnancy stage, start to finish, while The First 1000 Days Next 1000 Days Journals are for tracking your little one from birth to age 6. Each journal contains plenty of printings of McClure’s amazing paper-cutting art, as well as section titles to easily keep track of everything.

 

Whether you’re buying for your own seasoned mother, mom-to-be or favorite woman in motherhood, the Mouse always has plenty of brilliantly crafted goods. Those looking for soft and sleek may turn to Flytrap for beautiful apparel & scarves, while those looking to pamper mom may get bath & body products by Humble Salve or New Leaf Extract,

Whichever route you take, you’re already taking a step in the right direction by checking out our  Mother’s Day Gift Guide. :) Thanks for reading through, we hope to see you soon at the Mouse and Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!
