Hana & Posy: $40-$75 (regularly $80-$150)

Sign up to Daily Candy and get this special 50 percent off deal. The adorable, eco-friendly Old City flower shop was actually voted Best of 2010: Gifts & Flowers by Philadelphia magazine. I particularly like Hana’s Hartwell and Posy’s Kingston bouquets (shown above).


“Keep Calm and Carry On” Mug
Paper Source: $11.95

This message originally comes from a poster produced during the beginning of WWII that was never officially released. Now, it’s a perfect slogan for the modern day mom.


Crosley Pay Phone
Urban Outfitters: $90

If you got an old-school mom who still prefers using a landline phone, she may appreciate this 1950s inspired 3-slot pay phone replica. While it might remind her of her childhood, it has all the technology of a modern phone. The rotary dial fashion plate has actual buttons and you don’t need a coin to make a call (the functional coin slot leads to a bank).

Redeemable for events and performances at both the Kimmel Center and the Academy of Music, you and your moms can spend quality time together whilst enjoying world-renown performances whether it be an opera, ballet, musical, ect. You can order online or by phone.


5×7 Prints $5 each

These colorful, hand-drawn prints by local artist Danielle Byrne make for a perfect personalized gift. There’s a bunch of illustrations of everyday and nostalgic objects for you to choose from on her Web site and Etsy store. I recommend picking out three that best represent your mom then finding some decent dollar-store frames to put them in.


Metro Cosmo Dispenser
P.H.A.G (Philadelphia Home Art Garden): $54.50

For the mother who likes to entertain and throw a few back, this snazzy glass beverage dispenser will hold approximately one quart of whatever beverage she so chooses.

Upcycled Eco Friendly Crocheted T-Shirt Wrap Necklace
Big Green Earth Store: $30

Love this! Made entirely out of t-shirts, this handmade necklace is light-weight, durable and can be worn in several slightly different ways since you can wrap/stretch the large single crocheted chain as many times as you want. It also comes in eight different colors. Should it start to look a little dirty, don’t worry—you can just throw it into the washing machine!
