Mother’s Day, arguably one of the most important days of the year, is just around the corner. But if you’re short on ideas, fear not, a quick trip to Farmers Market will serve up a bounty of great gift options for mom.
Here are seven ideas for gifts that will make mom’s day.
Sure, jewelry always makes a nice gift. But imagine how excited mom will be when she receives an artisan-crafted, one-of-a-kind ring, bracelet, necklace or earring set? Daniel and Sara Weiss at Weiss Jewelry have years of experience hand crafting jewelry specifically to fit all their customers’ tastes. Whether mom prefers a design from scratch or would rather repurpose a beloved gem into a fresh new setting, Daniel and Sara can help you find the look she desires.
For a unique Mother's Day activity, consider a cooking class at Sur La Table. This Mother’s Day weekend, they will be offering two specialty classes. If you're looking for some one-on-one time with mom, book two spots for the Mother's Day Macarons class and learn how to perfect this tricky French delicacy. The Mommy & Me: Let's Bake class is specifically designed for young budding chefs who can enjoy baking brownies, meringue cookies and scones with mom by their side! If Mother’s Day weekend doesn’t work with her schedule, don’t fret! Sur La Table holds classes year round.
Everything's Coming Up Roses
Let Monsiuer Marcel Gourmet Market be your one-stop-shop this Mother's Day. They have a variety of rose-infused products including jams and syrups and an impressive selection of rosé wines - perfect for spring!
Treat mom to some skincare goodies from Kiehl’s so she can continue to pamper herself long after Mother's Day has ended. If you want to give her a little bit of everything, the Healthy Skincare Gift Set is the way to go. A $85 value, this set includes the Ultra Facial Cream and Calendula Face Wash and much more for only $68.
Breakfast in Bed
For an extra special surprise, why not treat mom to breakfast in bed. You can pick up farm fresh eggs from Marconda’s Puritan Poultry or Farmers Market Poultry. Both poultry merchants also have sister butcher shops, where you can select from a huge choice of bacon and sausage meat. Don’t forget oranges for squeezing at Farm Boy Produce and Farm Fresh Produce!
Is your mom the sweetest, but you’re struggling to find her the perfect gift? There’s no need to sugarcoat it – everyone has a sweet tooth of some sort! If your mom is a chocolate lover, head over to Littlejohn’s to pick her up some homemade chocolate or delightful English toffee. Magic Nut is a great choice for dried fruit slices or salty and sweet caramel popcorn. Over at Dylan’s Candy Bar, you can completely customize a box for mom and be sure to get all her favorites. These sweet treats are sure to be the perfect complement to any Mother’s Day gift.
Build Her Own Gift
Not exactly sure what mom wants this Mother’s Day? Maybe she’s in the mood for an insane 3,000 piece jigsaw puzzle from Kip’s Toyland? Or maybe she’d like some romantic scented Colonial Candles from By Candlelight or custom-created aromatherapy oils from Essence of Nature?
Perhaps she’s just in the mood for a hefty cook-it-at-home Tomahawk Steak from Huntington Meats & Sausage or Marconda's Meats. Gift giving can be fraught with anxiety, so the best gift might just be a Farmers Market Gift Certificate valid at any of our merchants. Purchase online here or visit the Farmers Market Office, upstairs at Gate 1.
We love to celebrate our moms at the Farmers Market. We hope you enjoy reading about them!
