Mother’s Day at Boxwood

Out of our 1,000 square feet, approximately 997 are dedicated to gifts moms would love. But since you can’t leave the house, I wanted to share our personal favorites – all available online. And we’ll deliver to Alexandria addresses for free, do curbside pick-up, or ship.

  1. One of our best new finds, these Blush diffusers are sure to delight. They smell amazing and make a statement in any space. Scents include grapefruit flower (my personal favorite, pictured), Moroccan peony, gardenia, sunset beach, and fig vetiver. $55
  2. Couldn’t forget our top selling item – these stunning hibiscus bud vases, mouth-blown in Italy. We’re fully stocked in all the colors including green, pink, cobalt, aqua, white, and clear. With or without flowers, it comes in a nice gift box that moms will love. $55
  3. We’re spending tons of time snuggled on the couch reading or watching Netflix – so a modern, thick blanket is always a great gift. Our blankets are made in upstate New York out of recycled materials. And some are even outdoor friendly. Options are available online, the poppy blanket pictured is $210.
  4. Our handmade pottery from couple Jill Rosenwald and Lawrence McRae out of Boston makes a strong statement. We love these in a kitchen filled with fruit or on a bookshelf. We also have vases and trays in a range of colors. The lo-lacey bowl pictured in the color carrot is $360.
  5. Tea towels are always useful – and we love to wrap them around a bottle of wine or candle. These popular 100% cotton tea towels are painted by an artist in Marietta, Georgia. $15 each.

  • The latest from Leah
Co-Owner | Boxwood
Over the past 15 years, I’ve covered the major branches of D.C. careers – political campaigns, Senate press office, advertising sales, and strategic communications. But after I had my two kids, I knew I wanted to do something that truly reflected my desire for creative, colorful design. Luckily, I stumbled into a shop on South Royal Street in early 2019 and met Joanna Szczerban. We opened Boxwood in April to offer Old Town a fresh take on home decor and gifts – and we haven’t looked back.

Boxwood was born out of the idea that our homes should be as vibrant and colorful as the people who live in them. So our decorative items and gifts bring a fresh, modern look to Old Town – everything from pillows and table linens to furniture painted with Annie Sloan® Chalk Paint®.
