I can imagine no better Mother’s Day than waking to breakfast in bed prepared by my pajama-clad clan including handwritten notes, strong mugs of coffee, one of my most favorite recipes, big hugs and kisses, and a memorable gift all enjoyed over a leisurely, snuggly morning.
The recipe is Swedish Pancakes with Lemon – delicate triangles of thin, eggy pancake, drizzled with hot melted butter and a few generous squeezes of tart fresh lemon juice, and dusted quite liberally with powdered sugar. It’s delightfully simple and delicious, a hopeful burst of sunshine on a plate.
The memorable Mother’s Day gift I have in mind is this breathtaking wood watch from Jord called Sidney in Red Sandalwood & Mother of Pearl. When the package arrived (extremely swiftly I might add, especially to Alaska), I couldn’t believe the beautiful wooden box, the impressive packaging, and the stunning timepiece. Holy smokes, you guys. Wow. Just wow. I like the weight of it, the texture and dimension in the wood grain, the ways it catches the light. If you’re looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas, look no further.
As a mom of three, I love the idea of receiving a watch for Mother’s Day… the ways it can represent the time that has passed and the times to come. It’s a perfect way for kids to say thank you to mom for all of the time she has invested in them and to look ahead to the memories that are yet to be made.
It’s a practical Mother’s Day gift that mom can wear every day, yet something so unique and significant that it might possibly become a timeless family heirloom. Thank you, Jord!
