Shower Mom with these Local gift ideas

While Mother’s Day may be a little different this year, we can still shower our moms with love. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite local goodies to help make mom feel special this Mother’s Day.

1). Gift Card to her Favorite Restaurant

While we may not be able to take our moms out to brunch this Mother’s Day, we can still support our local restaurants by buying a gift card to her favorite restaurant for a brunch later this summer. Most local restaurants are offering both physical and digital gift cards, so it should be a breeze to surprise her with something extra in your Mother’s Day card this year!

2). Truffles from Hilliards Chocolates

Family-owned Hilliards Chocolates have been making and selling their delicious treats for nearly 100 years in the Boston area. While located just outside Boston, their chocolates are available for purchase online and can be shipped wherever your mom may be! Some of their Mother’s Day creations include these beautiful Lemon Lavender Truffles, which are made with lemon and lavender ganache enveloped in a dark chocolate shell, making for a beautiful and delicious treat.

3). Home Décor from Choix Home

While we have all had a lot more time at home, surely mom would appreciate something special in the home décor department. Choix Home is a local, women owned business, dedicated to bringing the spirit of adventure to the home, as the owner is always out there exploring and learning about cultures from all over the world. Bring a little bit of the outside world home this Mother’s Day with a new handmade pillow or basket from Choix. Everything is available online, another great contactless gift.

4). Home Care Beauty Kit

The luxury spa, G2o, located in the Back Bay, another woman owned business, has found a way to pivot during this tough time of social distancing where they are unable to welcome clients at the spa itself. Their team has put together a set of “Home Care Kits” meant to help people give themselves spa-quality treatments at home. There are sets for skincare, nails, hair and body, with many options for specific treatments such as hair color protection and more. The kits are available for purchase on their website.

5). A Beautiful Travel Coffee Table Book

If your mom loves to travel and is bummed that she missed a Spring vacation this year, order her a copy of the beautiful new travel coffee table book, Dame Traveler: Live the Spirit of Adventure. Created by the founder of the popular travel Instagram account @DameTraveler, this book is filled with travel inspiration for that next family trip. The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
