Mother's Day Gifts

What do moms love?  All Shades has a number of gifts for mom this Sunday.

One favorite is a box of Teaposy blooming teas, which make tea-drinking an art. When placed in boiling water, these orbs of tea bloom into lovely flowers.  It's a pretty amazing experience to witness.  And then you get to drink the tea!

Or, how about a useful, elegant recycled plastic bowl from The S.P.I.R.A.L. Foundation? You can provide a Mother's Day present and celebrate Fair Trade month at the same time because S.P.I.R.A.L. supports Vietnamese and Nepalese artisans who are paid fair wages to make their wares and, with the Foundation's help, are able to fund important health and educational projects in those countries.
