Staff Picks: Unique Mother’s Day Gifts

We are *officially* banning mugs and magnets for Mother’s Day. Mom deserves a gift as unique as she is! Check out our Staff Picks Mother’s Day Gift Guide to see how all the folks at Smallflower are showing Mom some love this year. (Hint: there’s niche fragrance, beautiful candles, luxe hand creams, and more!) 

NYBG Honeysuckle Hand Crème by Caswell-Massey

“My mom planted honeysuckle in our backyard when I was a kid, so we both have fond memories of its pretty scent. This hand cream nourishes dry hands with shea butter and a portion of sales benefit the New York Botanical Garden’s conservation efforts—both things a gardener will appreciate!”

 Claire – Copywriter



Muguet Candle by Diptyque

“Nothing says spring for me like Lily of the Valley. And I have particularly vivid memories of smelling it with my mom as a kid. Diptyque candles are amazing, and this one captures the beauty and joy of Lily of the Valley really nicely.”

 Anthony – President


Namaka Rollerball Perfume by Hi Wildflower

“There is something so intoxicating about this scent. I want to wear it always. It would blow my wig off if I received this for Mother’s Day!”

 Lori – Product Specialist


Mineral Suncare Travel Set by COOLA Suncare

“My momma is a park ranger in South Dakota and spends most of her time working outside, especially in the summer months. This mineral sunscreen kit has pretty much everything she needs to stay safe when she’s out in the sun. I am sure I worry about it more than she does so this can be a great gift and a little reminder from her favorite and most caring son. Obviously, I will also send her some beautiful flowers.”

Alex – Buyer


Somerset Thyme Candle by KOBO

“Memories flood back into my mind each time I whiff this candle by KOBO. My mother and I love to cook together and the herbacious scents of thyme, sage, and lemon leaf in this candle always transports me back to our kitchen in the country. My mom loves growing herbs and I can’t wait to see her face this Mother’s Day when I tell her she can plant this candle’s box in her garden and it will grow into a thyme plant that we can use in our recipes as we cook together later this summer.”

Matthew – Assistant Manager



Rose Otto Day Moisturizer by Alteya Organics

“My mom has been a longtime customer at Merz and her new favorite product is the Alteya Organics Day Moisturizer. It’s a beautiful and useful everyday luxury.”

Madeleine – Product Specialist


 Bar Soaps by Meow Meow Tweet

“My mom is going to love these fun Meow Meow Tweet soaps! Each has a beautiful, relaxing fragrance, making every day feel like a spa day. PLUS they’re packaged in cute & colorful eco-friendly packaging—perfect for gifting!”

Kristi – Graphic Designer


Earth Mother EDP by Dame Perfumery

“I gave my mom a sample of this and she absolutely loved it, so I think it’s time for a full-size! It’s so dynamic and interesting, with a bunch of unique notes that create such an intriguing scent. Perfect for a strong, smart, and sassy lady like my mom!”

 Rachel – Copywriter


Rose Petal Soaps by Pre de Provence

“Momma loves her drawers smelling nice but doesn’t care much for drawer liners. So, she likes to use these little guest soaps. And once the smell fades, she’ll put them in the guest bathroom! Dual use!”

Ozy – Operations Manager


Unscented Glycerin Hand Cream by Herbalind

“My mom’s a nurse, so she has to wash her hands billions of times every day. It may not look fancy, but this glycerin cream keeps her hands from getting too dry and chapped. She just loves this stuff!”
