A.C. & Philly: Mom Appreciation – Gifts of the Past, Future and Presents!

Mother’s Day will come flying in this week, and it’s no secret that some of us are procrastinators more prepared than others. With all of the craziness of the past year and all of the excitement for more options this year, I wanted to look around at how Philly and A.C. are celebrating MOM, and found some really great gift ideas that involve an experience, taste and refreshment in our past, future and NOW! Connecting with three local business gals for their unique offerings showed me how great, fun and artsy this Mother’s Day will truly be.

RKS Curated thoughtful gift basket for Mom

GHOST OF MOTHER’S DAY WHICH HAS PASSED: Make it floral, make it delicious! Elegant and beautiful, check out the artsy floral bouquet boxes from Cake’d Up by Chandani and Roshini.

Heads up: This sold out fast, with limited orders for best service and freshness, so connect with our girl Chandani Patel on Facebook for next year or a special occasion. (Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and there is never an excuse needed for a delicious cupcake with style for the family.)

Fare from Cake'd Up by Chandani and Roshini

For this year’s gifts, the two Jersey baking girls offered two distinct packages of artistic cupcake creations. One delicious treat included vanilla cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, and the more adventurous package included lavender cupcakes with lemon buttercream and rose cupcake with vanilla buttercream. Ordering was easy and super personal (and comes with butterflies!) To make the treats, Cake’d Up requested messages sent to 609-705-7009 with the name of the special person, any allergies and special instructions. With pick up in the #Absecon area, the girls also offered limited first-come-first-serve delivery options for a small additional fee for all locals who could not pick up themselves. (Deliveries approved for Absecon, #Galloway, #AtlanticCity, #Ventnor, #EggHarborTownship, Egg Harbor City, Pleasantville, #Smithville, Mays Landing, and #Northfield.) Snack in style and get Cake’d Up!

Rachel Stern, owner of RKS Curated added the “Gifted” feature as a way to support local female businesses on mother’s day and make everyone happy. But when she’s not part of this dynamic group gift opportunity, she’s got plenty to offer of her own Mother’s Day selection. Expertly curated, her thoughtful pre-made baskets shop by category, and include “pampering” mom, “indulging” mom, or “celebrating” mom. More the customizing type? Rachel’s got you covered with the Build Your Own Box option. “I started this gifting business because I saw a hole in the community that I felt I could fill. I've always been detail-oriented and I have always loved crafting and gift giving, so this just felt like a natural niche market for me to be a part of", the young entrepreneur explained.

She is passionate about commissioned gift boxes, creating event favors and bulk corporate gifts on a larger scale, while “still infusing the feeling of being intimate.” And she is wishing you a great Mother’s Day!
