With Mother’s Day around the corner, we’ve been thinking a lot about the special women in our lives: our grandmothers, Mimi and Nana, and our very own mom. Earlier this month, we were so very lucky to have all three under one roof. It was a rare treat that we soaked up from start to finish!
One thing became apparent, though, as we enjoyed our time together with them: we were able to see that each one is so unique, with her own personality and tastes.
We love that Mimi is a master entertainer who relishes every moment she has with company. Her famous Christmas Party is a family favorite, and she enjoys hosting all sorts of holidays, birthdays and other celebrations throughout the year! Then, we thought of Nana, who is our resident Italian chef, making incredible homemade meals for us whenever we’re together. (Have you tried her amazing homemade Italian meatball recipe?! It’s seriously a must-have recipe in every home!) And, finally, our mom is an incredible connector. She loves introducing friends to other friends, creating an eclectic extended family around her. She goes out of her way to make everyone feel welcome in her home, something we love to embrace in our own homes too.
A Gift Guide with Personality in Mind
Reflecting on all of this gave us pause as we planned out our annual Mother’s Day Gift Guide. In addition, we’re always trying to incorporate intentional gifts for our loved ones that are both functional and beautiful. Therefore, we decided to personalize our gift guide this year! We immediately got to work creating five distinct gift sets that are curated for different personalities: The Entertainer, The Homebody, The Gardener, The Home Chef, and The Connector. Each gift set is filled with beautiful and sophisticated items, perfect for any important woman in your life. So, let’s celebrate our own unique mother this year, with curated gifts made just for them.
For our Personalized Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021, we’ve selected beautiful and thoughtful pieces from our APIARY Spring Summer 2021 Collection that will not only show your mom how much you care, but will fit seamlessly into her home decor.

The Entertainer is a mom who is a master at opening up her doors and loves every minute of company. We’ve paired our Striped Marble Charcuterie Board (here’s a similar one) with our Champagne Gold Cheese Knife Set, along with Faux Blush Reed Leaf Stem (similar) to complete the look.
Does your mom enjoy a quiet evening at home? We focused on coziness and warmth for this mom, pairing our Wooden Pillar Candle Holder & Pure White Pillar Candle, with our Dusty Rose Handwoven Cotton Throw to make for the perfect night in. Our Small Antique Brass Planter and Faux Flocked Cream Berry Stem (similar) complete the look.
For the mom who loves her garden, build a gift set composed of the following items:
- Pitcher: This piece can be used to serve up a cold beverage or serve as a unique vase for her favorite blooms.
- Serving Tray: Incorporating a serving tray allows your gift to feel like it’s in a package. We love serving trays when working outside, as we simply place all the refreshments we need onto it, easily cutting down our trips back inside!
- Small floral vessels: These will complement the gift presentation and provide your mom with stylish and functional vessels for smaller blooms.
- Dried or Faux Greenery: This addition is like adding a ribbon onto a gift package. It completes the overall look and can be styled in your mom’s house for years to come!
The Home Chef
For the mom whose favorite room in the house is the kitchen, we’ve created a gift set that will elevate her home chef style: our Marble Pinch Bowl Set with Brass Spoons and Mango Charcuterie & Cutting Board. We’ve paired this with assorted cooking seasonings and added a little extra flair with our Dried Bora Bunch. Add our Handwoven Cotton Fringe Throw in Steel (shop it in Sand!) for an inviting and complete look.
Does your mom love to connect around the dining room table, engaging in good conversation with her loved ones? Here’s the perfect gift set that’ll allow her to set a table meant for connection. We’ve chosen our Cream Fringe Dinner Napkins, Natural Leather Napkin Rings and Dried Bora Bunch, creating four complete table settings, allowing her to do what she does best: connect with others. Tie it all together with a stunning yet functional serving tray.
