May 5, 2023- Looking for that meaningful, last-minute gift for mom? Occasionette, the independent, woman-owned and operated, gifts and goods retailer known for insanely creative and inspired gifting, has got you fully covered for this upcoming Mother’s Day, Sunday May 14. For those local to the greater Philadelphia region, Occasionette will host an exciting and hands-on Celebrate Mom Bouquet Bar event, as well as be the one-stop-shop for a highly-thoughtful gift with the expertly curated selection for one’s special maternal figures, including home décor, wares, jewelry, candles, accessories, the best greeting cards, and much more. 

With Mother’s Day less than two weeks away, all three locations are stocked and ready to go with a variety of goods sure to impress any type of mother-figure in one’s life, including a streamlined collection dubbed Sara’s Top Picks which encompasses libations, baking necessities, sweet treats, and more.

Being a freshly-minted mother of two herself, Villari shares her expertise and recommends the following Mother’s Day gift ideas available at all Occasionette locations:

  • Geometry Tea Towels – Voted “Best Tea Towel” By Better Homes and Gardens magazine, Geometry’s super absorbent and fast drying tea towels are made from post-consumer materials and come in a wide selection of patterns that are constantly expanding. A selection of seasonal patterns currently in-stock at Occasionette include Grandbloom, Passionfruit, Daisies, and Iridescence.
  • Seedlip Non-Alcoholic Spirits – Occasionette’s favorite zero-proof spirit brand is available in three varieties at all three locations: Garden 108, Grove 42, and Spice 94. All three are perfect for mixing cocktails, zero-proof or otherwise. The bottles themselves also look gorgeous sitting in any shelf, bar cart, or liquor cabinet.
  • COCO Chocolatier Chocolate Bars – A “grown up” treat for mom with elevated flavors, all wrapped in attractive, colorful packaging. COCO Chocolatier chocolate bars come in both traditional flavors, such as Salted Caramel or Cold Brew, as well as inventive varieties like Gin & Tonic or Rhubarb & Ginger.
  • Chez Gagne Shower Steamers – Being a mother often means having little-to-no time to yourself, especially for a ‘luxury’ experience such as taking a long soak in the tub. Thankfully, these super-popular shower steamers provide soothing, aromatherapeutic scents that make even a short shower feel like a trip to the spa. They also feature humorous packaging and varieties, like the holiday-appropriate Done Parenting Today set of eight orange vanilla-scented shower steamers. 

Additionally, moms and their loved ones are invited to visit the East Passyunk and Collingswood locations on Saturday, May 13 from 6:30 – 7:30pm for Celebrate Mom Bouquet Bar. For $55 per person, guests can create their own personalized bouquet by selecting various blooms and ribbons, all while sipping on pours of prosecco, enjoying light bites, and more – ideal for creating a tailored gift for mom, or doing together as a pre-Mother’s Day celebration. 

For those who wish to gift expertly-curated flower arrangements, Occasionette is also offering the perfect pair to any card with preorders on South Stem Bud Vase 4-Packs ($65), each containing four bud vases filled with local spring flowers that can be used together to create a centerpiece or separated for usage all over the house. Designed by local florist South Stems, these unique gifts will be available for preorder online for pickup at any Occasionette now(available while supplies last).
