Shop for Mom

It's May, and with May comes flowers, sunshine and- oh crap, it's almost Mother's Day!  Being a mother myself, I know that shopping for a mom can be quite a hit or miss. Instead of buying the the thoughtless gift card to Starbucks or a fancy card that will end up being tossed away, why not purchase something that speaks to her?! 

Luckily, here at The Volk, we are partnered with a variety of brands that provide a plethora of options for every type of mom out there! Take a look at my personal favorites for this Mother's Day season, helping minimize your time searching for the perfect gift and maximizing your time spent with her. Happy Shopping! 

Excelsior Candles

If your mom is organic and earth conscious, these candles are ideal for her home.  Handcrafted and poured in Excelsior, MN; these candles are certain to impress.  With a calming aroma, biodegradable soy wax, and reusable jars, you are not only helping her mind relax, but helping save the world of waste and toxins. Plus you're contributing the economy of another small business! Talk about a gift that feels great!

Accessory Set

If your mom is a little more on the glamorous side take a look at this chic accessory set. Help make this set a little more unique and one-of-a-kind by selecting the color theme to reflect her birthstone. With each birthstone color palette available, you can create an accessory set that she adores and really resonates with her spirit.  Help your mama sparkle and shine by contacting stylist Cia at Chloe & Isabel, bringing glamour and joy to your mother's eyes!

The Pouch

For the sustainable Mom, slip her one of these effortlessly chic pouches created by none other than, local design team, WAY the Label.  Way the Label is a brand that creates timeless, well-crafted pieces using a sustainable practices. With the option of having a detachable wristlet strap, and an assortment of colors and patterns you can select a bag perfect for reflecting your Mama's personal style. 

Chambray Shirt

For the classic Mom who rocks every day house work while also working and raising fantastic children, take a look at the "never going out of style" chambray shirt. Available at local MN online boutique, From Anny, you can keep your mom, stylish, comfortable and ready for any adventure that may come her way. Whether it be, running errands or walking into the office, this shirt can easily be dressed up or worn casually depending on the occasion. If your Mom already owns a chambray shirt, this is a great option for updating her "well-loved" one from 1995 and bringing a slightly more modern touch to her closet. 

The Graphic Tee

If your Mama is little more alternative, have fun with the epic "QUEEN" tee from Ruva Afric Wear.  Every Mother is a queen, and having it printed on a tee, just confirms that your Mom is a queen! With a vibrant African pattern and quality fabric, this tee is guaranteed to be worn and loved no matter the season or occasion.  

These are just a few of my favorite pieces that I think almost any chic Mother would enjoy/and or use. Of course each woman is unique and our tastes vary, but I truly believe that between these five brands you will find something fabulous for your one-of-a-kind Mother.  If not any of these, there is always a subscription to The Volk available, providing her with up-to-date trends, beauty and style tips and of course stories covering mental health. Plus proceeds are donated to Threads for Teens, making this a gift that truly keeps on giving! Check out all of our magazines below:

All in all, I hope you each enjoy your Mother's Day. Whether you are a Mother or not, women are powerful, individuals and having a day to celebrate the mothers out there is fantastic and should be celebrated greatly! 

Stay Fierce,
