Last Minute Gifts for Mom

Mother's Day Gift Guide for all the slackers out there!  LaBelle's General Store

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Are you like me and still haven't picked out Mom's gift for Mother's Day?  This guide to last minute gifts for Mom will make it very easy to sew up your Mother's Day gift buying.  Whether your mom is a jewelry lover, a turtle lover, or lover of anything coastal, LaBelle's General Store in Dennis Port has your last minute Mother's Day gifts all wrapped up.

Jadeite Juicer

Coral Reef Hand Soap

Jadeite is always a favorite for anyone wishing to add a hint of mint to their kitchen or a nostalgic vibe. Our Jadeite is available in this new beautiful juicer and measuring cup combination, which we love, because it's two tools in one.  Mom would love a piece of Jadeite and think of you every time she uses it!  Our Coral Reef Hand Soap is another fantastic gift for your Mom.  The color of this coastal hand soap is what makes it so beautiful, in addition to the shell bling which combines to make this soap dispenser shimmer next to the sink.  Use it in a bathroom or the kitchen for coastal touch that mom will love whether her home is by the sea or miles and miles and miles away from it.

Starfish Corded Pendant

Love Starfish Necklace Set

We have some really pretty coastal jewelry at LaBelle's General Store that will make mom smile. Our black corded Starfish Necklace is actually a reproduction of a famous design, and our Love Starfish Necklace Set looks like a custom piece, but in actuality, it's not,  and it's pretty and inexpensive at only $15.95, making it one of our hottest sellers.

All She Does Is Beach Sign

Cape Cod Turtle Mug

What can we say about this adorably sweet yet tart All She Does is Beach Beach Beach Sign?  It's small enough to fit on a desk, a shelf or even a side table, anywhere mom would appreciate a chuckle.  And if your mom is a turtle-lover, this teal and chartreuse Turtle Mug holds a hearty sized cup of coffee or latte and we can gift bag it for you to look delightful for Mother's Day.

Whale Butter Dish

Anchor Ice Scoop

Mom will absolutely adore our Whale Butter Dish as many mom's have ever since these sweet guys began to grace our shelves.  This elusive coastal butter dish doesn't last long, no matter how many we order, so make sure to get yours today.  And if your mom likes to entertain, our Anchor Ice Scoop is the perfect addition to her nautical bar set up.

Cute Anchor Tote

Nautical Ceramic Travel Mug

Anchors, anchors, everywhere.  We can't resist the anchor design and have it adorned on a variety of beautiful gift ideas like this Anchor Tote Bag and Anchor Travel Mug.  We also have anchor coffee mugs, anchor jewelry, anchor bottle openers, and anchor embroidered clothing for the nautical chic mom in your life.

Octopus Salt & Pepper Shakers

Mermaid Garden Flag

If your mom collects Salt & Pepper Shakers, we have some really cute ones, like this charming Octopus Set.  Come check out our coastal salt & pepper shakers and at the same time, grab mom one of our beautiful garden flags to add some color to her Spring garden while she waits for her hydrangeas to explode.  This Mermaid Garden Flag actually shimmers with iridescent materials making it a real show stopper for the mermaid lover in your life.

We're open until 5pm today, so come on in and get your wonderful mom something unusual from LaBelle's just to let her know how exceptional she is to you on her special day.

And if you're a Mom, Happy Mother's Day!

Boston Flower Show Inspiration

It's nice to be able to get ourselves over-the-bridge this time of year.  Our winter break is quickly coming to a close and that means all work and no play for the next six months.  So for one last hurrah, nothing could be better for this girl than some Spring-immersion and Boston Flower & Garden Show inspiration.

Very shortly we'll be re-opening our Dennis Port store for the 2017 season which means the next chance we'll get "over the bridge" will probably be at some point in early 2018.  The 2017 Boston Flower & Garden Show is so dazzling, we couldn't just keep these beautiful flower show images to ourselves.  So take a peak at our field trip to the Boston Flower Show, and if you have the time, make a trip of your own over-the-bridge before it all gets too hectic, as Cape Cod comes back to life after its long winter's nap.

Hopefully Cape Cod will warm up soon so we can all get our hands dirty in the garden.  And come visit our new home and garden department, Cottage Style when we open this Spring.  We'll have lots of pretty things to decorate your home and your garden with.

What are you planning to do to in your garden this year?
