Mother’s Day is right around the corner. For those not keeping track, it is literally next Sunday. If you’re a dad + you’re reading this, those kiddos won’t be bringing home macaroni crafts they made in art class this year. With not a lot of time left + many stores with expanded shipping timelines, it looks like you’re going to need to #ShopLocal. Lucky for you, I’ve created this Memphis Mother’s Day gift guide to help you find the perfect present for her special day.
Why Shop Local?
It’s no secret that we are in unprecedented times. Many small businesses are on the brink + need our help to boost them up. Many may not be opening their doors this week, but they still have wonderful options to help you get gifts in time for Mother’s Day! Amazon used to be the go-to + still maybe, but they have de-prioritized non-essential as we navigate this crisis. In contrast, many local businesses are offering curbside pick up + even porch delivery so you’ll get your items in a jiffy. Plus, you get the added perk of boosting your local economy + helping make Memphis the place you want it to be: one where small businesses thrive + we keep our unique soul.
Small Business Memphis Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Give your mom something sweet this Mother’s Day with macarons from 17 Berkshire. You can get a box of 8 or 16. If macarons aren’t her thing they have other sweet treats + teas she may love.
One of my favorite local shops, Nine01 II Five04 is one of those offering porch drop-offs! They are one of my favorite places to get accessories + have a killer collection of shoes, bags, and of course, clothes!
Do you want both sweet treats + some cute clothes or accessories for your mama? Check out Prima’s Bakery + Boutique! They have some awesome Mother’s Day items from their bakery your mother will love. Plus, get her something from the boutique side (SHOPMUCHO) or a gift card if you can’t decide.
Get Mother’s Day brunch from a local restaurant! The ILoveMemphis Blog has a round-up of all the local restaurants offering take out + delivery brunch.
Find the perfect gift for her at the Cooper-Young Gallery + Gift Shop. They did all the heavy lifting of putting together great gift ideas from their inventory.
Another great place to find gifts is Falling Into Place on Broad! They have some adorable cards + Memphis-themed art as well as jewelry + other succulents.
Give her something to look forward to post-quarantine with a gift card to Gould’s Salon Spa. I know I, for one, am going to need a serious massage after all this craziness subsides.
