Mother's Day Gift Guide from Georgetown Cupcake Co-Founders Katherine Berman and Sophie LaMontagne
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we got an exclusive sneak peek at the shopping list of Georgetown Cupcake co-founders (and sisters) Katherine Berman and Sophie LaMontagne. In 2008, the stars of TLC’s DC Cupcakes and national best-selling authors of The Cupcake Diaries and Sweet Celebrations opened their first Georgetown Cupcake location in Washington, D.C. Their passion for baking turned into a major success as they expanded their business into Maryland, New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.
In addition to baking more than 25,000 adorable cupcakes daily and offering 100-plus flavors, the sisters have been working with charitable organizations and foundations like Make-A-Wish and Hope for Henry Foundation to focus on children’s issues. We’re totally taking notes. Keep scrolling to see their impressive lineup—you can bet their gift guide is as sweet as their delicious cupcakes. Happy shopping!
Georgetown Cupcake Mother’s Day Heart Dozen
“This special-edition Mother’s Day Dozen is packaged in a beautiful pink heart-shaped keepsake box that includes 12 flavors like Lavender Earl Grey Teacake, White Chocolate Raspberry, Salted Caramel, and Marble Brownie Fudge Cheesecake. Definitely the sweetest gift you can send your mom this Mother’s Day,” says Berman.
Smith & Cult Nail Polish
“If you are planning on giving your mom a gift certificate for a mani/pedi, this polish is the perfect little something to include. We are obsessed with Smith & Cult, particularly this bright pink shade called Suburban Warrior,” says LaMontagne.
Dolce & Gabbana iPhone case
“If you are thinking about giving your mom an iPhone accessory, Dolce & Gabbana has a variety of seasonal floral prints for iPhone 6s and 7s that make a stylish gift for tech-savvy moms,” says Berman. This dauphine leather case fits the iPhone 7 Plus.
AERIN ROSE DE GRASSE SOLID PERFUME CHARM BRACELET & NECKLACE COMPACT
“This makes a beautiful gift for Mom: a gold rose bracelet and necklace that do double duty! Perfume, check. Jewelry, check,” says LaMontagne.
Williams Sonoma Georgetown Cupcake Mix
“If your mom loves to bake, pair this mix with a cute spatula and other Williams Sonoma baking accessories. Our Red Velvet mix is great for Mother’s Day, but you can choose from our Chocolate, Vanilla, Lemon, and Gluten-Free Vanilla mixes,” says Berman.
Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream
“We love this hand and nail cream and carry it with us wherever we go! It smells fantastic and moisturizes dry skin and cuticles,” says LaMontagne.
TEA FORTE TEA TASTING ASSORTMENT GIFT SET
“Our mom loves to drink tea, and this is a beautiful set to give to any tea lover. It includes unique flavors like Blueberry Merlot, Lemon Sorbetti, Orchid Vanilla, Raspberry Nectar, White Ambrosia, and White Ginger Pear,” says Berman.
Patchology Flashmasque Facial Sheets
“Great for traveling! If you are feeling tired and run down, this is like a quick mini facial that you can put on while you’re in your pajamas in the hotel room. It really plumps and brightens the skin,” says LaMontagne.
Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Home Candle
“Jo Malone candles always make a luxurious gift, and we love the peony blush suede scent and its hints of jasmine, apple, and rose,” says Berman.
DIANE JAMES BLOOMS PALM BEACH PREP
“We are huge fans of Diane James flowers. They are the most lifelike flower arrangements, and they last forever. Your mom can enjoy them every day, no watering required!” says LaMontagne.
