Let's go shopping!
Beauty with Danielle
Beauty with Danielle is one of my favorite lifestyle and beauty influencers. Danielle is a wife, Mama, boutique co-owner and has a make-up business. She started with her company in 2017 shortly after losing her Mom to cancer, which is what prompted her switch to natural products and cosmetics.
I’m sharing her personal favorite product and best seller, Epic Mascara. Pictured is the 4D Epic Mascara (purple tube $29) which has fibers in the tube for a false look without the hassle. A fiberless option (black tube $24) is also available.
Café Baby delivers handmade baby and toddler food and fresh-baked lactation cookies right to your doorstep. Stop in their Indianapolis area storefront late spring and shop your Café Baby favorites and super cool feeding and nursing supplies.
Looking for the perfect gift for the new momma in your life? Look no further than Café Baby Mommy’s Milk Lactation Cookies. They are so good and I ate these early on in my pregnancy with my daughter and they really did give my milk supply a boost! Cookies are baked fresh weekly with no preservatives, ever. Only $15.99 for a pack of 10 cookies.
Cream & Concrete
Cream & Concrete is a handmade decor & jewelry company based out of Indianapolis that specializes in items made from white cement. I own many of their concrete décor pieces and beautiful dainty jewelry. You would be surprised by how many uses you can find for their trays and vessels. Their jewelry is well-made and I always get compliments when I am wearing my Cream & Concrete necklace or earrings.
Their exclusive “Forza Gold Necklace” as a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. “Forza” meaning ‘Strength’ in Italian, is to show the strength of moms being symbolized in the cement charm. Beautiful and meaningful? Yes, please!
The Forza Gold Necklace is an 18k gold filled chain with a small cement-filled gold charm. Gift this necklace to your mom this Mother’s Day to thank her for being your strength and foundation growing up and in present day. Only $40 + free shipping.
The Dusty Dogwood
Every piece of Dusty Dogwood jewelry is handcrafted using parts that are traditionally found in fishing lures. Crafted from their love for others and a desire to be fishers of men (Matthew 4:19) and a love for the outdoors and savoring life’s simple joys, they find the beauty in fishing lures is just too pretty to keep hidden in a tackle box. Their jewelry would be a perfect gift for the Mom who enjoys the outdoors and living that lake life!
I personally own their mother of pearl lure earrings. The lure has a soft shimmer that makes it feel so luxurious. I’m featuring the Dainty Mother of Pearl Lure Necklace. These lures are genuine Abalone. Each lure will have its own distinct and beautiful iridescent color pattern as created in nature.
The necklace is available with either a 16” or 18” brass chain and is only $28.
Ever Grace Designs
Kelsey is the face and heart behind Ever Grace Designs. Her shop specializes in hand-lettered wood signs and wood decor. I own multiple pieces from Ever Grace and the attention to detail and care she puts into each piece is amazing. In addition to home décor items, I have one of her hexagon necklaces and it’s so light and the long length makes it great for layering!
For Mother’s Day, I’m highlighting her Spring Mini Signs. These mini signs are the perfect little something to gift for Mother’s Day! Unique and customized, they add a little joy to your home decor! Available as individual signs ($6 each), sets of three ($16), or sets of five ($26).
These fun handmade felt ball garlands are ethically sourced and add a little whimsy to any space or home décor. They come in various color recipes, lengths and styles or you can request a custom garland to perfectly match Mom’s favorite colors or décor.
I have a few of these garlands and they are the perfect way to bring a pop of color into a room or dress up a mantle. They start at just $17 and the color pattern possibilities are almost endless!
Handmade Hoosier creates simple and unique handmade and hand-lettered products that allow you to curate a space that perfectly reflects you - your personality, your style, and your interests.
In addition to the many pieces of Alli’s work I have throughout my home, you may recognize her lettering from our popular Indiana Home candle and our new You Make A Difference candle bag.
For Mom, you can’t go wrong with her new embroidery hoops! Featured here is a tan linen hoop and it includes the sweetest hand stamped “love you more” clay ornament. It’s a steal at just $12!
Sarah’s whimsical and joyful hand-lettered signs, shirts, stickers, and prints are sure to be a hit with Mom! Everything she makes promotes love and happiness – a perfect message for Mom this Mother’s Day!

Some of the items in this box are even customizable! Only $30 (includes shipping), but you need to preorder by May 1st to ensure Mother’s Day delivery.
Janae in Life
Janae in Life is another one of my favorite influencers. She’s a huge advocate for shopping small businesses, clean products, and navigating life with her sweet baby girl. She’s always sharing where she picked up cute baby clothes and toys so if you have a little one, check her out!
Janae is also a Maskara Beauty Artist and one of her favorite products is the make-up removing Microfiber Cloth. To use simply wash your face as you normally would, dampen the cloth in warm water and gently wipe in circular motions until your makeup is removed. The cloth can be washed and air-dried. They are available in 2 colors and only $25 for a set of 3. I haven’t tried these yet, but I am definitely going to be adding this one to my shopping cart!
Jill Leedy Designs
Jill is a modern fiber artist from Indiana. From hand-crocheted hats to macramé jewelry, her goal is to create pieces that bring happiness and joy. Jill has such a great variety of items. I personally have the most adorable crocheted pumpkins, macramé napkin rings, the softest hair scrunchies, multiple crocheted hats, and the adorable rainbow earrings featured for Mother’s Day.
Why rainbows? Rainbows help motivate you through the dark times, give hope, and are a symbol of good luck. These macramé rainbow earrings are available in both traditional and pastel rainbows but can be made in other colors so don’t hesitate to reach out to Jill if you’re looking for something in Mom’s favorite colors.

The Pink Macaroon
The Pink Macaroon offers a wide range of products from pretend play for children to felt flowers for home decor to bookmarks and planner bands. I especially love her felt flowers and little animals. If you’ve been to any markets with me you may have noticed her flowers at my checkout stand.
For Mother’s Day, we are highlighting her bookmarks. They are so versatile and can be used for traditional books, bibles, cookbooks, and planners. At a price point of just $15-25 (varies by style), you’ll have money left over to pick up a book to go with it!

The Purple Gerber is a collection of handmade home décor with all the farmhouse vibes. From statement pieces to accent pieces The Purple Gerber has a little something for just about anyone. I have one of her Sullivan stands and there are so many uses for it!
One of her most popular items are the Cass Candlesticks. For Mother’s Day she’s created a special listing that includes a pair of white distressed candlesticks and two white unscented pillar candles for only $35 (regular price is $40) plus shipping. And if you prefer a little fragrance I know where you could get a couple of jar candles that would fit nicely. 😉
Sloan Jewelry Design
Sloane Jewelry Design is a line of dainty handmade jewelry made in Indianapolis, Indiana. Each piece is cut, shaped, soldered, and polished by hand out of Sterling Silver and 14K Gold Filled materials that will last.
Her jewelry is beautiful! I love my bar earrings and I was so excited that she wanted to showcase her Personalized Name Necklace for our Mother’s Day Gift Guide. I purchased this necklace about a month ago for myself with my kiddo’s names engraved on it and told my husband it was my Mother’s Day present, but since I bought it I got to have it early. 😊
You can customize this simple bar necklace with names, numbers, or words that are special to you. There are a couple of font choices too. The sterling silver necklace is only $45 and the 14K gold-filled is $55. That’s such a great price for something personalized!

The Heel Balm is SO easy to use. It comes in a nice push-up style dispenser so you don’t get it all over when you apply it. I put it on after the shower and wear my socks around. It can also be used for elbows, knees, knuckles, and any rough patch of skin. At just $10.50 this is a great gift for Mom!
