Shopping for last minute Mother’s Day gifts?

Mother always told you not to wait until the last minute, but here you are again: Mother’s Day is just around the corner and you’re still waiting for inspiration to strike! Well, we’re here to help with great gift ideas from some of our favorite partners.

Mom’s green thumb may leave something to be desired, but that doesn’t keep her from planting her favorite perennials each season. Get her something that will remind her of you all year round with Terrain’s Heirloom Seed Collection, which happens to complement our very own Heirloom Tomato candle perfectly!

Since you’ve got her to thank for your baby blue’s, give her something that brings out the best in her eyes, with these stunning London Blue Topaz Chandelier earrings from AshBlue.

A personal favorite, Vosges Haut Chocolat has something special for any sweet tooth. Perfect for Mother’s Day, she’ll melt when she opens Vosges’ delicious Exotic Truffle Heart Collection.

And of course, Mom’s favorite flower is one of our latest Spring scents. The new Lavender and Mimosa candles are now hot off the press from Orange & Pear!

Wishing you a very Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Linnea’s Lights!

Skip the Boiled Eggs & Consider These Fun Easter Ideas

The days are getting warmer and the flowers are starting to bloom … bring on the Spring clean{s}ing!  Here are a couple of our favorite boutiques that are great for finding gifts to freshen up the home.

Terrain

While you might not be looking for bright eggs in the green grass this year – Terrain has several (good-looking) reasons for you to be playing in the grass.  How about brightening up the view from your window with the ‘Wildflower Collection‘? After the seeds are all planted and it is time to head inside you can take the relaxing and refreshing smell of the garden inside with you!  Linnea’s Lights Heirloom Tomato – with subtle scents of fresh sliced tomatoes and clean citrus it’s sure to do the trick.  Now sit back, inhale the refreshing scents and watch your garden grow!

Orange and Pear

Yes, you can have a sophisticated style that is still fun and festive!  Orange and Pear is full of several great gifts for the home, but our favorite are these ornithology coasters.  Each coaster features one colorful bird egg in the center, which means they’ll be perfect for Easter Brunch, but we bet that you’ll love them so much you’ll find yourself using them even after Easter has come and gone.  Create the perfect afternoon by accompanying them with a nice meal, fresh lemonade and a  Linnea’s Lights Lemon Verbena Candle,  to warm and brighten the table with fresh lemon and green floral scents making the indoors sunny no matter what the weather may be outside.

Good luck lightening up!

MacIntosh Apple

Nothing conjures the spirit of autumn like a stroll through an apple orchard. A favorite childhood tradition, Lynn always brought the family to get inspired with a visit to the orchards in Michigan and Indiana, spending the day picking apples right off the tree. Now I’ve passed that tradition down to my children—a clear autumn sky, the bright colored leaves, a bounty of fresh apples. This clean, bright new scent perfectly captures the aroma of a perfect Fall day and freshly picked apples, with inviting citrus top notes for the perfect aromatic balance. Pick yours up fresh at terrain.
