Our favorite gift picks for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is just a couple of weeks away, so we thought we’d help get you started on finding those oh-so-special gifts early. We’ve pulled together some Mother’s Day gift ideas to bring a smile to their faces while appeal to their Wine Sister style:
For the mom who loves a good book: Thirsty Girl Leslie Sbrocco’s book, “Wine for Women, A Guide to Buying, Pairing and Sharing Wine,” has something for every wine enthusiast — from beginner to expert. And why not add a capabunga wine stopper to make sure the bottle she opened to enjoy with her book stays as fresh as possible.
For the peace-keeper: Spit Bucket’s Vinostop reusable wine bottle stoppers keep yourwine fresh and looking hip with their unique peace-sign design. Give the wine bottle stopper alone or consider going for a kit of Spit Bucket favorites, including coasters and essential “Needs salt” apron.
For the mom who needs a minute: “OMG I so need a glass of wine or I’m gonna sell my kids” stemless wine glasses, along with tote bag and corkscrewwill send the perfect message when it’s time for a Mommy kind of “time out.” Perfect for a relaxing spring picnic or day at the beach! (Free shipping on glasses when you order by Sunday, April 29. Click on the “shop” tab on the OMG Facebook Page, enter your email address and the promo code will populate on the screen instantly after you click “enter.”)
For the mom who loves a night out on the town: Live near an upcoming Bottlenotes’ event location? Buy a ticket for you and your favorite mom to sample wines from around the world in your own back yard. Won’t be close to any of their locations? Create your own wine tasting event at home and invite all your best Wine Sisters.
For the mom with entrepreneurial aspirations: “Mom, Incorporated: A Guide to Business and Baby,” by Aliza Sherman and Danielle Smith, is a realistic, holistic guide for moms who want to branch out on their own. It’s the perfect resource for women who are starting and growing a business from home, all while managing the “juggle” of motherhood.
For the mom who craves the latest gadgets: Get her a new smartphone and pre-load it with great wine apps! Get our Drink-U-Lator app to help her determine how much wine, beer and spirits to buy for a party or event. The Corkbin app will let her track all of the wines she tastes on the go. The Daily Sip Deals app by Bottlenotes will help her track her next wine tasting experience.
For the mom with way too many wine glasses: “The One” wine glass collection from Andrea Robinson is a great gift for anyone who takes their sipping seriously (or any sipper who wants to cut down their wine collection to just two glasses). This collection was developed by a woman who is one of only 17 female Master Sommeliers in the country. When ordering on Andrea’s site andreawine.com, remember to use the special code WINESISTER2012 for a 10% discount and free shipping on 2 four packs or more!
For the mom who’s always giving back: Equip her with some Tough Enough to Wear Pink gear that’s not only stylish but also supports the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a cause that’s close to our hearts. Pair those items with a bottle of Purple Cowboy wine, and a portion of each bottle purchased also goes to support Tough Enough.
Happy shopping and Happy Mother’s Day, ladies!
