Moms + Birthdays = STRESS

Can we all agree that buying birthday presents for moms is the absolute worst? I’m not exaggerating when I say that my mom’s birthday honestly stresses me out more than the ‘so what are your plans after graduation’ talk that adults like to bombard me with.

My mother deserves the world for putting up with my sister and me, but unfortunately, we can’t afford that. So every year we exchange hundreds of texts brainstorming exactly what can we get a woman that seems to have just about everything. Because that’s the thing with our mom, she buys everything she wants/needs without even having the courtesy of waiting for us to buy it for her, so inconsiderate (jk, I love you mom). This year though, I found my saving grace in the mom heaven that is Peppercorn.

If Home Goods, Target and Sur La Table were to have a super baby, Peppercorn would be that child. It literally has everything a functioning adult needs for their home and I have yet to meet a mother that doesn’t love and cherish Peppercorn. What’s not to love though? It’s two entire floors dedicated to homemaking and viral Pinterest-worthy decor. From super nice kitchenware to fine china and more decorative plates than you could ever need, you could basically host a dinner party for the Queen. Now I must warn you, it’s a little overwhelming, especially for the uninitiated (like yours truly). There’s just so much stuff that you honestly don't know where to look, but it is organized in pretty distinct sections and the staff is just lovely. Honestly A+ customer service, they made navigating that store a breeze and even managed to unwind me, the giant ball of stress that I am.

After much deliberation, I ended up getting my mom a really pretty decorative silver plate that I think will look nice on her new dining table. So if you’re ever in a bind and need to get a gift for a motherly-type figure or really any adult that has their life together, Peppercorn is where it’s at, I promise you won’t be leaving empty-handed.

*Fun fact - Peppercorn has been independently owned and operated since opening in 1977 on the Pearl Street Mall… 12,000 square feet of a-w-e-s-o-m-e!
