Maze Home

On a recent Zoom staff meeting, owner Cindy Galvin and her Maze Home team were talking about “a light at the end of the tunnel” for this crazy time and someone joked that it might be a scented candle! Genius! We could all use a quarantine candle. For gifting, Maze loves this candle bundled with cozy monogrammed throws, night shirts, lounge pants or shorts, or cosmetic bags. The embroidery is done in-house so lead times are usually pretty quick. To place an order, message Maze Home on Instagram @mazehome or Facebook/MazeHomeStore, email them at or call 847.441.1115.

Therese Crowe Designs

I’ve made no secret how much I love my monogram ring from Therese Crowe Design! Her designs are extraordinary and she has a number of custom pieces in her showroom ready to dazzle the mom in your life. The bezzled diamond necklace is amazing as a layering piece or on its own.
