Not that we don’t love getting macaroni and construction paper hearts, or lop-sided clay vases from our little bundles of trouble, but it never hurts to give the kid(s) (and Dad’s a little hint wink, wink) about what we’d love our homemade Mothers’ Day cards attached to. So, here’s what started as just 10 days worth of goodies from the M.S.L. Mothers’ Day Gift Guide for 2015, but with so many gifts to choose from I had to include some bonuses. Ladies thank me later and enjoy! Share your favorites. P.S. Stay tuned for some upcoming give-a-ways, that may be including some select items listed below! 😉

Oxgut Hose Company; For the Trendy Mom
Oxgut Hose Company up-cycles decommissioned fire hose into handcrafted designs for home, office and life. Yes, fire hose. The average life span for a fire hose is 10 years – each year fire departments also test hoses to ensure they’re up for fighting fires… once retired – they just kind of sit there, they are not biodegradable.
Oxgut selects the most interesting fire hose to put into the hands of local artisans, who work to up-cycle the resilient material into beautiful, handmade pieces. The incredible inherent character of the reclaimed fire hose creates many distinguished and one-of-a-kind items. In some pieces, original stenciling can still be seen, such as “San Francisco Fire Dept./ SFFD. ” In others, the interior liners, (where the water passed through), are used to create a pristine, sleek look. This is fire hose. Who knew?
Celebrate Mother’s Day and every day with a selection of some of the company’s latest offerings.
The Franceschi Tote: Sporting strength, style and a water resistant interior, the over-the-shoulder tote bag features three types of reclaimed fire hose, yet won’t weigh you down. Crafted from the fire hose’s interior liner, paired with up-cycled rubber fire hose and heavy-duty yet seek blue webbing handles, Fran’s stealth white weave and fine, rubberized interior resist daily wear-and-tear, and extreme elements. The Franceschi is named for the gregarious Sonoma Fire Chief who helps save this gorgeous material.
The details: Hand-made Brass toggle w/single loop closure • Single interior patch pocket • White/Green/Blue with Orange Trim • h: 24″ / w: 16″ / d: 8″ / 2 lbs., 12 oz. • Hand-crafted in the US. Available at oxgut.com and select retailers in the Bay Area; $124.00

The entire Amrita Singh website is now 50% off with FREE ground shipping in the continental US now through Mother’s Day. Prices start at $5, but there are two items in particular that I’d love to recommend as gifts: The Selene, regularly $150, now on sale for $75 as part of our sitewide Mother’s Day sale extravaganza! I recommend the Selene for its practicality as a reversible, but also because with only two strands it’s a bit more of an “everyday wear” item than our three strand versions.
