Really want to treat Mom right this Mother's Day? We say skip the grocery-store-bought greeting card and flowers—because if she's anything like us, it kinda pains her to have to toss them in the trash a week or two later . . . and that's just not right! Instead, we say get her something that's one-of-a-kind, something with a longer shelf-life, something that's already lived a little, something upcycled. We've handpicked a few ideas that are sure to delight . . .


Salvage roofing copper + designer wallpaper sample = a gorgeous cuff for a strong and on-trend Mom.
