Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is May 12. That’s less than a month away. If you’re like me, you’re already thinking about what to get her! Instead of flowers, consider getting something that’s personalized and unique.

I’ve put a list of my top six products here for you to give you an idea of what to get your mom, aunt or grandma. I hear from my customers all the time about how amazed their recipients are when they receive their items. You won’t find these items anywhere else but here, in my shop!

Family Portrait Tapestry

The Family Portrait is printed on lightweight fabric and great for hanging anywhere. My illustration of your family is printed on this fabric in vibrant colors. The graphics are inspired by the traditional Hmong Story Cloth. You can customize it to include all your family members at their current age. There’s also a blanket version to use as a blanket on chilly nights.

Hmong Story Cloth

The Hmong Story Cloth is a visual illustration of the Hmong and their migration from Laos to Thailand. This is a popular story that’s found on many hand-stitched story cloths of the Hmong. My version of the story cloth is printed on tapestry and is great for hanging. It’s available in several sizes and you can also get a soft blanket version to use as a blanket on chilly nights.

Hmong Clock

I originally created the Hmong Clock as a tool for my kids to learn their numbers in the Hmong language, however, it’s a great functional piece of artwork for anyone at any age. This is a great conversation starter too!

Hmong Tote

There are several versions of the Hmong Tote that I designed. Check them all out here. This would be a great addition to any other gift, as you can carry many items in it!

Kitchen Towel

If your mom loves to make or eat papaya (who’s mom doesn’t?!) this is the perfect gift for her!This is the personalized kitchen towel with various fruits and vegetables like Papaya, and my fun Hmong characters holding on to the pestle and mortar.

Extended Family Tree

For years I’ve had many family members ask me to make family trees. As you probably know, Hmong people have very large extended families. We have lots of siblings, lots of aunts, lots of uncles, lots of nieces, nephews and lots of pets (you get the idea). As a result, I created this Extended Family Tree that you can now order for your own gigantic family.

The Extended Family Tree includes a set of grandparents (most likely, your parents), children/siblings (most likely, you and your siblings), kids (most likely your kids), sibling’s kids and any pets you may have! This is truly an heirloom piece and worth the investment as it will be cherished for many years to come, across different generations!

So there you have it: My top 6 gifts for Mother’s Day. I hope you found this guide helpful. Let me know in the comments below.
