7 Coolest Summertime Ideas for Home Decor Gifts for Mom

Mother's Day has come and gone this year, but we think moms need to be celebrated all year long.  Whether it's your mom's birthday, anniversary, or you're simply visiting her this summer, it's the perfect time to give a gift that will brighten up her home and bring a smile to her face. If your mom loves to entertain guests or simply enjoys relaxing in her own space, there are plenty of unique and stylish home decor gifts that will make her feel special.  We've put together 7 cool gift ideas for you.

Here are 7 of the coolest summertime ideas for home decor gifts for moms, including two of our own pieces from the Solange & Frances collection.

  1. Handmade Capiz Shell Wind Chimes

Our best selling windchimes have elevated thousands of outdoor spaces with their calm colors and tranquil melodies!  Harvested from the seas surrounding Indonesia, natural capiz shell is an eco-friendly, abundant, and sustainable resource we are proud to use in our handcrafted wind chimes.  And they make the perfect gift - many of our customers buy one for themselves and one for a loved one.

  1. Personalized Photo Gifts from Snapfish

Snapfish is a great place to find personalized photo gifts that your mom will love. From custom photo books and calendars to personalized throw pillows and blankets, there are plenty of options to choose from. You can even create your own custom photo mug or wine glass. These gifts are a great way to showcase your favorite memories and make your mom feel special.

  1. Cozy Throw Blankets 

A cozy throw blanket is a perfect gift for a mom who loves to curl up with a good book or watch her favorite show on the couch.  Soft and fluffy blankets come from a variety of materials like cotton, wool, and cashmere. You can even find blankets with fun patterns and designs that will add a pop of color to any room.  

This hand-loomed alpaca throw instantly elevates the look of any couch or bed. Not to mention, it’s incredibly soft and warm – so, go on and cozy up.

Handwoven by master artisans in a quiet mountain village in the Peruvian Andes, each throw takes about a week to complete. All made exclusively in a fair trade environment.”

  1. Decorative Pillows 

Decorative pillows are a great way to add a touch of style and comfort to any room in the house. You can find pillows in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, including fun patterns and designs that will add a pop of color to any space. You can even find pillows with inspirational quotes or messages that will make your mom feel loved and appreciated.

Embellished with plush poms, this decorative jute pillow makes a rustic, textured addition to every seat.

  1. Wall Art 

Wall art is a great way to add a touch of personality and style to any room in the house. You can find art in a variety of styles, including abstract, modern, and traditional. You can even find art with inspirational quotes or messages that will make your mom feel inspired and motivated.

Unique mirrors are also a fantastic way to decorate a wall and make a small space seem bigger.  

"With an earthy rattan frame and mirrored glass center, this wall piece is defined by its modern round shape. Elegant and natural with a fresh bungalow feel, this mirror would give an organic look over the mantel, at the entry, and beyond."

  1. Nontoxic Scented Candles 

Nontoxic scented candles are a great way to add a touch of ambiance and relaxation to any room in the house. You can find candles in a variety of scents, including floral, fruity, and spicy. You can even find candles with unique scents like lavender and eucalyptus that will help your mom relax and unwind after a long day.  

Linnea Candles are pioneers in the clean candle space. Each Wood House candle is hand-poured with soy wax and has double cotton wicks. One for you and one for Mom.

"Linnea's candles are handcrafted in small batches by our artisans. We use only the highest quality fragrances and essential oils designed to perfectly accent your environment with lush, memorable fragrances that refresh, purify, and inspire. Matchbox included.  The wood house is warm and woodsy with scents of bergamot, violet, and sandalwood."

  1. Rattan Serving Tray

Another great gift idea from Solange & Frances is our rattan rectangular tray, sure to match a multitude of styles. Its natural rattan material and intricate weaving patterns add texture and visual interest to any space. It can be used as a centerpiece on a coffee table or ottoman to organize remote controls, coasters, and decorative items.  

In conclusion, there are plenty of unique and stylish home decor gifts that will make your mom feel special this summer. From personalized photo gifts to cozy throw blankets and scented candles, there are plenty of options to choose from. And if you're looking for something truly special, consider supporting small businesses like Solange & Frances with a purchase of any of our handcrafted gifts.
