A Summer with Etsy NY and Celebrate Brooklyn!

It was an amazing Summer with my Etsy NY team and Celebrate Brooklyn! This Summer’s concert series at the Prospect Park Bandshell opened with an electric performance by Janelle Monae. And, performances by Jack Johnson, The National, Nickel Creek, Nick Cave, St. Vincent, and many other talents drew fans from near and far.

Our Etsy NY shop, stocked with local, artisan merchandise that included our natural, organic skin care products, garnered rave reviews. The season flew by! We look forward to seeing you again next time!

HEALTH & BEAUTY: The Beauty of Moms

Did you watch the YouTube video titled the “World’s Toughest Job”? If not, prepare for a spoiler alert.

The video is about Moms. It’s about all the wonderful things Mom’s do for us. Things they do day after day. Unconditionally and selflessly. It’s about the beauty of Moms. And, it went viral.

With all the things that our Moms do for us and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to know how to recognize and reward them for their hard work. So, we reached out to some experts…Moms! And, this is what they said…

Overall, gift cards topped the list. This surprised us since gift cards may seem a bit impersonal. Yet, it means that Moms can use the gift cards to purchase whatever they would like or need. So, the Moms we surveyed say gift cards rule!

Assorted gift packages or a day at the spa are greatly appreciated. And, kitchen appliances ranked high on the list. Who knew?! We certainly didn’t, but we agree. Who wouldn’t love a blender, food processor, mixer, or any gadget that makes life easier!

While the majority of Moms said that they enjoy both handmade and store-bought gifts, their favorite and most memorable gifts were those that were handmade. They cherish the handcrafted cards, flowers, and accessories that their kids make especially for them.

We hope that you have the chance to thank your Mom in as many ways as you can and as often as you can. We wish you a wonderful time celebrating the beauty of your Mom!
