We’ve been talking a lot about Mother’s Day gifts! Today we’re sharing my favorite Mother’s Day gifts to give! 

I recently saw these Tea Drops and LOVED them! They are individually wrapped and perfect to add to a cute gift! Just open the bag and drop in the hot water. If you aren’t sure what flavor of tea they like, Tea Drops are perfect because you can just give them one of each! 

Have you ever seen a Tea Mug? These are NEW this season and we love them for the avid tea drinker! The side of the mug has a cute little tea bag holder. Paired with the Tea Drops, you will have the perfect gift for your Mom! 

The perfect Michigan made Artisan Caramels that were made exclusively for Little Luxuries! These caramels are a delicious sweet treat and are the perfect addition to any present!

Have you tried the amazing Hanover’s Michigan Mints? These delicious chocolates are made in my hometown of St. John’s, Michigan! I love the Michigan Cherry and Mint Chocolates! We have a variety of milk chocolate and dark chocolate - if you want to add these to a present, you won’t regret it! 

The cutest gift for Mom or grandma is the Kitchen Buddy Spatula. What an adorable pairing - one large spatula with handy, dandy measuring table on the back, paired with it's mini-me! These are great gifts for the avid baker, mom and child cookie baking tag team, the always entertaining hostess, and / or anyone who has a kitchen!

I’ve mentioned tea a lot, but we know the Moms out there love their coffee!! Our Lake Charlevoix Coffee is back in stock! This is locally made in Northern Michigan by an awesome company and we love selling this- and you love drinking it!

 

A PERFECT gift for Mom and Grandma: Beth Mueller and it’s back in stock! We have so many mugs, plates, trays and more in for the new season. This makes a great gift for Mom. It’s classic, yet reminds her of her best summer days on Mackinac. 

My favorite part of any gift is our signature line, Mackinac Bath and Body! Goat’s Milk Hand Lotion, Body Butter, Bar Soap, Room Spray and Body Spray are all included in four different scents. We already have them packaged in a gift box ready to go, if that’s easier for you!

If none of the options above interest you for Mom, shoot us an email! We’d love to help you pick out the perfect gift to send to Mom this year.

 

Xo,

Nicole

This past weekend we were on Mackinac Island getting ready for the new season. There is a lot of preparation involved before that opening day! 

We are enjoying the last couple of weekends of the streets being empty before the crowds arrive. We were also able to spend some time with family and friends and catch a gorgeous sunset! Louie made a little ‘boat’ out of popsicle sticks and duct tape and we all went down to the water to let it ‘sail’. It was so cute! 

On the work side, I’m busy getting the three shops ready for the new season, along with Andrew busily making new changes at Doud’s Market. Doud’s Market has decided to update to self-checkout lines which is an exciting, but big project!

 

I worked on tidying the shops, going through new product that has arrived and putting displays together! We have SO many amazing new goodies for the season. I’ve been sharing on my Instagram many of my favorite new goodies for Mom this Mother’s Day. 

Do you need help picking out a gift for Mom? Check out our Mother’s Day page here: https://littleluxuriesofmackinac.com/collections/mothers-day-gifts.

If you still need help after looking at our Mother’s Day collection, send us an email at littleluxuriesmanager@yahoo.com. We’d love to help you find the perfect gift for Mom! 

Hope your week is a good one! You’ll find me in my casual shop clothes and a baseball hat this week moving boxes, pricing, displaying and trying to get it all together!

Here's a round up of what I'm loving for February! 
Necklace Hanger

This necklace hanger is so convenient for me. I stuck it on our wall in our closet and now my necklaces are seen much easier and do not tangle! Easy to install and functional!

This cozy cardigan can be dressed up or down. LOVE it! Love this color too!


I’ve been buying these bath bombs for the boys for a few years now. They are great and a good price! Makes bath time exciting and a fun treat once in awhile!

These jogger pants are so comfy and I love the fit! These will be great for all seasons.

I got this mini projector for the boys for Valentine’s Day. They love it! It’s a fun addition to our house!

I’m all about all natural and that goes for room sprays too. This mint essential oil spray is SO nice and refreshing to spray in bedrooms and bathrooms.
