Unique Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: An Erie Drive Review

Are you looking for something out of the ordinary for the mother in your life this year?

I love gifts that you can’t find anywhere else.

It’s hard to find a unique gift at the same big box stores we’re at all week long.

Sometimes, I think I miss all the pretty stuff at those stores because I’m too busy just grabbing the every day items on my list. 

That’s why I love Erie Drive


Erie Drive is a online store with unique gifts for everyone, and it’s the perfect place to find a Mother’s Day gift for the woman in your life. 

You’ll find everything there from design geek items like this David Weeks wooden elephant to more practical items under $20!

I’m not at the $200 wooden elephant stage of life, but I do love that thing (on someone else’s shelf). 


Every item on their site makes a great conversation piece. They’re the kind of goodies that make people say, “Where’d you get that?!”

Those are the kind of gifts I like! 


Here are my picks of unique Mother’s Day Gift Ideas under $50!

AKA stuff that would put a smile on my face this Mother’s Day. 

#1 Tweet Tweet Recyclable bird houses

Um. Smiling. 

These DIY birdhouses are made from 100% recyclable materials. They’re perfect for indoor and durable enough for outdoor. I want one of each, please. 


#2 Orla Kiely Enamel plant pots

These pots are so gorgeous. I didn’t even realize that the pot I have was enameled metal until I planted something in it yesterday! It’s been sitting on my counter for a week and I thought it was ceramic. I kept telling the boys, “be careful by that pot. I don’t want to break it before I get a picture of it.”

Duh. It’s metal.

That’s how lovely the enamel is. 


#3 Rob Ryan Four Seasons Plate Set 

I wasn’t familiar with Rob Ryan until I browsed Erie Drive’s site. He an incredible artist who makes intricate papercut prints BY HAND. Amazing. There’s several Rob Ryan products on the site. I love these plates! 


#4 Rob Ryan Faux Leather Wash Bag  

Can a girl have enough bags? Or enough of Rob Ryan? I don’t think so.

I have the wash bag and love it. It’s covered in that amazing papercut print with darling quotes that leave me smiling.

Fill it up with all of mom’s favorite girly items! She’ll love you for it. 


#5 Eggwhite and Chamomile Facial Soap

I want this soap. I’m convinced that it’s going to make my skin beautiful. So convinced that I just ordered this set for, um…myself. It sounds heavenly. 



Remember I told you that my son likes to pick up new plants at our local nursery? When I was out of town a couple of weeks ago, he brought this succulent home from a nursery trip with dad. That same day this gorgeous Orla Kiely planter arrived. We finally potted it yesterday. 

Isn’t it lovely?

*I was provided with free products in exchange for my honest review. Erie Drive sent me the Orla Kiely pot shown above and the Rob Ryan wash bag that I quickly filled with all of my beauty essentials. They did not force me to go online this morning and order more stuff. All opinions are my own.
