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 fun activity that the whole family can do together, consider a cooking class at Sur La Table. Throughout Mother’s Day weekend, they will be offering classes on a variety of cuisines. Their Spain and Just Desserts Family Fun classes can be enjoyed by anyone ages 7 and up and the Mother’s Day Macaroons class is perfect for someone looking for some one-on-one time with mom. If Mother’s Day weekend doesn’t work with her schedule, don’t fret! Sur La Table holds classes year round.
Mother’s Day Picnic
Who doesn’t like a picnic in the springtime? Load up on delectable treats from the Market and then head out to your nearest park to celebrate mom. Pair a baguette made in-house at French bakery Michelina with a selection of artisan cheeses from Monsieur Marcel Gourmet Market. Then, order an array of sweet and savory empanadas to go from Nonna’s Empanadas. Last but not least, don’t forget to complete your setup with a basket and picnic essentials from Cost Plus World Market. This will double as a great gift for mom to keep enjoying even after her special day has ended.
Treat the mom that does it all to a day of pampering. Give her a worry free afternoon at Oh Waouh, a full service salon that’s the Market’s one stop shop for hair, nails and makeup. Spoil her with a relaxing mani pedi or give her the gift of a blowdry and style that will have her feeling red carpet ready. If you want to bring the pampering to mom, consider grabbing her some skin care goodies from Kiehl’s. The Saturday before Mother’s Day, they’ll be arranging flowers to go along with any purchase.
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. You could also have Farm Fresh Produce custom blend your choice of juices or add a little Conscious Kombucha to your breakfast from Greenhouse.
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!
