BED OF ROSES | GLENDALOUGH ROSE GIN
Distilled in Ireland, Glendalough Rose Gin is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for the spirit-loving mom. The rose-petal gin was made in honor of the head distiller’s mom, Rose, after her passing. “Carefully-tended flowers from her rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin. After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavors and give it its lovely pink hue,” Glendalough Distillery says.
PERFECT FIT | SHUTTERFLY MODERN MARBLE BAND KEEPSAKE PUZZLE
Capture your favorite memories of your mom in the form of a keepsake puzzle from Shutterfly.

This would also be a great gift for a new mom—to capture her newborn and have a puzzle the two can play together as they grow.
