Are you one who usually bestows flowers upon your mom for Mother’s Day? This year, try mixing it up by giving her flowers in another way through art prints, jewelry, home decor, and more, divided into four color palettes: peaches and cream, bright and bold yellows, purple tones, and blue and green hues — all of which are sure to dazzle your mom on Mother’s Day.

And hey, who says you have to give your mom or that special woman in your life something special only one time out of the year?

April Gift Guide

Rain art print by Laura Ruth / Available for purchase at Society 6

Hello. Sarah Hart from Hart to Heart here with your April gift guide. I can’t say how thrilled I am to be sharing my first post with you folks.

Bright yellow rain boots, splashing in mud puddles, and the soft sleepy sound of rain drops on the rooftop. As a long-time lover of a good ol’ rainy day, I was inspired to bring together some fantastic finds made special for those dreamy, drizzly spring days that excite our imagination and inspire us to see our world in a new light.
