2021 Mother's Day Gift Guide

We cannot believe just how quickly Mother's Day snuck up on us this year, like, seriously, it's only a few weeks away! Are you still trying to come up with that perfect gift for mom? Maybe you were on the fence about a few different options and need a tie-breaker? Or, perhaps you are the mom in question and believe your children, partner, bestest friend, etc. need a (gentle) push in the right direction without you outright saying what you'd like? Have no fear - Jimmy is here with a new Gift Guide that all you crafty mothers out there will love!

What's better than flowers? A bouquet of yarn flowers, of course! Why deal with the emotional weight of your flora kicking the bucket when you could turn those flowers into something special that you'll wear for years to come? For us, that seems like a no-brainer! 
With the newest edition of the Jimmy Beans Wool Yarn Bouquets, you can indulge in the sweet sensation of sumptuous strings while reveling in the fact that they won't wilt - no guilt here! We're so excited to announce that this year, we've arranged some floral fun in the ways of the Starflake Shawl by Steven West! Using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, create a gorgeous, drapey wrap that keeps you both comfortable and fashionable, finding its way into your wardrobe with ease.

Mom's gonna need some bag space to carry all of her new swag, won't she!? Why not indulge in one of the new della Q Maker's Canvas Collection bags and accessories? Roomy and comfortable to carry, each bag and accessory in the della Q Maker's Canvas Collection is fashioned from genuine leather and waxed canvas, making a color-blocked masterpiece that makes themselves right at home in the family of della Q. Equipped with antique brass hardware and knitting-specific features, she will have her own project bag/yarn bowl/notion keeper with her at all times - talk about a smart idea!

What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than by paying homage to Mother Earth!? Our newest kit focuses on our impact on the environment through our kitchen. Why use a million paper towels when you have gorgeous, handmade dishcloths to use? We're limiting our waste by doing our favorite thing in the world - knitting, of course! 

Each kit comes with enough Blue Sky Fibers Organic Cotton yarn to make three dishcloths, three 2" wooden hoops to hang them up in a darling display, three 1" coconut shell buttons (a sustainable resource), the pattern needed to complete the dishcloths, and one bar of vegan, multi-purpose kitchen soap (with plastic-free packaging) from Cassia Organics. Use it as a replacement for dish soap or cleaning kitchen surfaces!

With each kit sold, we are donating $2.00 to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada

Okay, we know that Mother's Day isn't really mom's birthday (unless, of course, she was lucky to be born that day, then, hi mom!) but Mother's Day acts like the birthday to all moms out there, right? Filled with love, gifts, celebrations, and family time, they're baaaasically the same thing. The Jimmy Beans Wool Birthday Box is a month-long celebration filling each day with yarn, goodies, gifts, and more!

Celebrate your big day by treating yourself to an exclusive shawl pattern designed by our own Bean, Amy Gunderson, to make the whole month a little more magical - and the best part? You can curl up and accessorize in a job well done, flaunting your present to the world!

6.) Madelinetosh x Shibui Knits Collab Kits

Shibui Knits
and Madelinetosh go together like bread and butter - it's a surprise this didn't happen sooner! This special palette of shades was dreamt up by the masterminds of color inspired by the desert. Rich shades of red and pale blue complemented by the greens and yellows of sagebrush transport us to a place where we're both cozy and free. 

Holding two strands of yarn at a time or alternating between the two, create comfortable, fuzzy fabrics that will make their home effortlessly into your wardrobe. In chic, modern shapes and sleek designs, we can't choose just one!

You can never have too many needles! Indulge in these smart needles that marry the worlds of knitting needles and tape measures!

Jimmy's SmartStix Wooden Interchangeable Needles sets
have needles that are marked at 1" intervals on both the needles and cords in a new, sleek, wooden design, so you can measure your knitting creations on the go... Heck, you can even measure your gauge and do wraps per inch if you want!

We've said it before, and we'll say it again - we love small things! They're just inherently so cute! Seriously a skein of yarn is nice, but a mini sken? Suddenly so much more adorable!

That's why we're obsessed with the
Koigu Pencil Boxes! Each kit comes with 10 demi KPPPM skeins of yarn equaling about 820 yards to a pack. Available in an array of gorgeous painterly palettes, it's a wonder we haven't picked them all up for ourselves yet, hehe!
