Mother's Day, betsy & iya Style.

Dear May, why you gotta be so busy?? This month is FULL for us: the birthdays of Barrie & Will, our EXPANSION PARTY, Crafty Wonderland Colossal Spring Sale, Betsy & Will's trip to Peru, Memorial Day, and, fingers crossed, the first real warm weather days (which should be city wide holidays, but that's for another post). Even with a full calendar, there's a day that we could absolutely NEVER forget coming up fast this month. That's right, it's time to celebrate all the mommas in our lives! Whether she's your birth mother, a mother figure, or your baby's momma, we want to help you make her feel special. Here's some Mother's Day gift inspiration*, or as we like to call it at b&i, "giftspo." *Note: all items are for sale in our brick & mortar shop. Call 503-227-5482 to purchase if you aren't in Portland; we're happy to ship! All betsy & iya jewelry is for sale in our online shop.

Mother's Day is an excellent excuse to reminder her of her beauty, inside and out. Treat her to an escape with an in home spa treatment. These Herbivore products are luxurious and indulgent but also gentle and hydrating. Curling up in a soft bath sheet by Creative Women is a great way to end her pampering experience.
