Little Luxuries

It’s Mother’s Day Weekend on Mackinac Island! It’s a lot chillier than I’d like it to be, but there are still plenty of ways to have fun and treat Mom to a special day, if you happen to be visiting for the weekend. Last year, my boys took me on a picnic and then to the Butterfly House for.a day of family fun! 
A favorite Mother’s Day tradition for many is brunch at the Grand Hotel. Take your Mom to the Grand Buffet Luncheon in the Main Dining Room. It’s a great way to celebrate Mom in a special way to let her know that you love her! 
Many of the shops on Main Street will be open, if you still haven’t found the perfect gift for Mom and need to do some last minute shopping.  Little Luxuries will be open on Sunday starting at 10 AM and we hope to see you then!

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Sometimes it can be hard to know what to get Mom for this special day. I’ve picked out three of my favorite products that we carry to share with you. I wouldn’t mind receiving as a present, so hopefully this will help give you some ideas for what to buy your favorite mom.

Peninsulas Wallet by Jenna Kator Handbags: This wallet keeps me organized and looking stylish! The inside has many different compartments that help to be able to fit all of your necessities inside. 
Relax Perfume by Lollia: The lavender and honey aromas of this perfume is so classic. It is a fresh scent that leaves you feeling pretty and ready to conquer the day ahead.
Farmhouse Fresh
Farmhouse Fresh: I love this line! It is all-natural, fun and fresh. Everything they make is good for your skin and it really works! My personal favorite is the Whoopie Cream Shea Butter, which is soft and smells great!
On top of finding the perfect gift for Mom at Little Luxuries, we also have an assortment of special, silly or sentimental Mother’s Day cards. We hope we are able to help you truly celebrate those women in your life who mean the most to you this year!
