Mothers' Day Wish Lists

We see a lot of mothers -and grandmothers, and aunts, and sisters - at Capabilities. Every day we watch individuals touch, try out and consider any number of products in our store. We overhear the conversations with friends or other family members about how great it would be to have "x" or "y." "When I get my check next month, I'll come back for that." Or, "if I win the lottery, I will treat myself to something like that." So, as we list some gift ideas for moms and other great women in your life, we know a thing or two about what we're saying. Trust us. Here are three that we think would delight even the most resistant of relatives:

  1. Janska Easy-to-Wear Clothing. How about a lapwrap for grandmother? She loves to cozy up in her easy chair to relax after a full day. She seems to always get a chill, though, and there is never anything handy to throw over her shoulders. Or the leopard vest, fashionable and practical all at once, especially great during windy spring days? Mocsocks are terrific, especially at this funny in-between time of year.

  2. Decorative Hand-Painted Canes. As you might know, we are always on the lookout for the unique and practical. We also love to feature local artists, and those with local ties. We have written before about our own Amy Vicioso from the metro Denver area who creates gorgeous gold-leafed designs on canes, walkers, crutches and wheelchairs. Give someone you love a gift that is truly one of a kind, and might help her keep her balance besides! We also have hand-crafted wooden canes designed by Gae Miller originally from the metro Denver area, now residing in Ann Arbor, MI.

  3. Reclining Lift Chair. We hear women every day sigh that great "ahhh" of comfort when they try out our collection of these comfortable chairs. Not intended just for those who have difficulty sitting or getting up from a sitting position, this multiposition chair also ensures that you get plenty of circulation by elevating your feet, for example. Or, if your loved one is one of the millions with sleep disruptions, this chair can provide a comfortable sleep option occasionally, especially those with "infinite" positioning ability. Considered by many an extravagance, the reclining lift chairs in our collection are affordable, stylish and come with some of the best warranties in the business. Now through the end of May, we are offering 10% off many of the chairs in our showroom. Stop by or contact us for details.

We have hundreds of items and lots of ideas, especially for those "hard to buy" women in your lives. If you have a unique or interesting Mothers' Day idea, post it here or at the end of our blog so others can add it to their lists, too.
