We love honoring mothers on Mother’s Day! We also know that mothers deserve a year-round celebration. Here are some inspired gift ideas to honor the mothers in your life throughout the year.

Meaningful Gifts

Gifts are always more meaningful when they’re personalized and chosen with care. Lang House Chicago and Emil Bach House have great options to choose from. These one-of-a-kind items give mom a memento of Chicago history and architecture, and can make her feel special at any time of day.

For the Morning – Brighten a mom’s day with a handcrafted Lang House Chicago mug in hunter green or light teal. Each mug is glazed and decorated with the historic Lang House Chicago image, or opt for the Emil Bach House window mug. She’ll think of you every time she enjoys a hot cup of coffee or a cozy cup of tea. 

On the Go – A busy, on-the-go mom can always use an extra bag. The Lang House Chicago canvas tote bag has everything a mom needs in a carry-all: sturdy canvas construction, a zippered closure, and an extra front pocket for easy access to essential items.   

Mealtime – For a mom who loves to cook, share a taste of Chicago with The World in One Cookbook: The Varied Cuisines of Chicago’s Far North Side. It includes 221 recipes contributed by Chicago residents and restaurants.

In the Evening – Surprise the special lady in your life with a pair of the FLW chevron design earrings. These elegant earrings are inspired by stained glass in Frank Lloyd Wright’s J.J. Walser Jr. House.

On the Weekends – Mom can always use some extra rest & relaxation. Our luxurious Coyuchi robes in Waffle White or Organic Blue Mediterranean can give her a relaxing spa experience at home.

From Afar – Send some local love to a mom across the miles with Chicago notecards. Vibrant individual cards showcase beautiful locations around Chicago, and a set includes classic black & white photographs from an award-winning local art director.

Anytime – Remind mom she’s always on your mind with an Emil Bach House votive candle holder. The laser-cut design is made of sustainable Bamboo and includes a glass votive holder and a flicker LED battery-operated tea light.
