    44 Small Businesses To Check Out For Mother's Day If You're Sick Of Giving The Same Ol' Gifts

    It's often the small (business) gifts that are the biggest hit.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Mother's Day, shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for May 8th!

    1. Kikiyoscarves categorizes their products by what type of gift you are giving, and to whom. If you have a hard time shopping for your mom, this site is happy to hold your hand and help you find the perfect gift! (Might I recommend the birth flower scarf my MIL will be getting this year?)

    2. Ellie's Party Supply is gonna be a fun way to surprise your mom on her special day. Here's hoping these balloons have her ~burst~ into a big ol' smile.

    3. Hot N Saucy mixes up small batches of all-natural, colorful sauces you're spice-lovin' mother has gotta get her hands on. The shop even has swag, and once her tastebuds get some of this, she'll gladly wear that swag every dang day.

    4. Frankie Print Co has a selection of home goods that are out-of-this-world darling, including a blanket you can personalize with your own message and handwriting. Snail mail was never your thing, but this can make up for all the times you "forgot" to write while away at camp.

    5. Izzy Macarons — for moms with a sweet tooth and even sweeter disposition, there's no better stop than Izzy's! Browse through all the delectable selections via flavors (like red velvet, strawberry cheesecake, cookies and cream, and peanut butter & jelly) or by subject (animals, hearts, even Frida Khalo!). Um, yum.

    6. WittyPills is stocked with gifts that are truly worth laughing out loud at. If your mom gave you the gift of her sense of humor, grab one of these and you can give it right on back!

    7. Eucalyptus Blooms is a dream come true for moms who love having natural, soothing scents in their home. From bath goods to natural bouquets, you're sure to find a hit gift here.

    8. Wish Upon Magic offers customers a quick trip to Disney through darling decor and some sweeeet stickers — your Disney-lovin' mama is gonna think this gift is magic.

    9. Small Batch Pottery has eclectic art and pottery for moms who have an impressive ability to spot the oddest (and loveliest) treasures when you're shopping together. Ceramic fortune cookies FTW.

    10. Aleishla — a stunning jewelry shop that'll definitely have a unique piece your mother will love. She deserves jewelry as bold and beautiful as she is!

    11. Handcrafted Buffalo is filled with cheery decor and other needle felted fun — go ahead and grab a garland that's gonna brighten up an empty nook or cranny in your mom's place.

    12. Granite Press — one of these prints is the perfect way to show your mountain-climbing mama that you appreciated the time she took to get you out into nature...even if you're enjoying getting your BFA in the center of the city these days.

    13. The Rubbish Revival is the best stop for gorgeous oceanside goods. Wrap up one of their sea glass accessories and ~sea~ your mom light up when she puts it on.

    14. EcoVibe is a true one-stop-shop to get all your home good hopes and dreams. Does your mom want apothecary goods? Furniture? The gift of more gift wrap? They've got it!

    15. Fox & Fables' collection of whimsical critters and cozy paintings are the perfect gifts for filling your mamma's IRL cottage with.

    16. Papa Rozier Farms takes wholesome ingredients grown on their actual family farm and turns them into luxury products your mom can use on her hair, face, and body. This shop is my go-to stop anytime I get someone a gift. Can confirm: they are always a hit!

    17. ChappyWrap has the *world's* best blankets (in my slightly biased opinion) made from all-natural cotton. They are gonna be great indoors, outdoors, and atop your chilly mama 24/7.

    18. Maya's Cookies is a vegan bakery that offers a mind-boggling selection of cookies, ranging from lovable classics to the completely unique. Yes I will take 17 of the "Drunken Grandma" batch. ThankYouVeryMuch.

    19. Snif bottles up gender-fluid aromas in primo packaging. This is a splurge-worthy stop for showing your mom your taste is slightly more sophisticated than the year you gave her a whoopie cushion. Your ma is gonna love this gift so much it just might give her the sniffles.

    20. Material Gods just might be the horrific home decor your scary-movie-loving mama didn't know she needed. She taught you to love horror classics as a kid, but she might Scream when she realizes you love them just as (inappropriately) much as she does.

    21. Red Bay Coffee provides customers with the beans and brewing tools to make a truly perfect drink. Start Mother's Day off with a perfect cuppa, your mom will be espres-so appreciative.

    22. Capsul Jewelry creates one-of-a-kind custom charm bracelets, pendant necklaces, and other small accessories that'll love calling your mom's jewelry box home. Unless she ends up wearing it 24/7, which is a likely possibility with pieces this cute!

    23. Neil Neil Orange Peels sells brilliant stained glass artwork you can practically already picture in your mom's library/garden/office...depending on the flavor of mom you have.

    24. Fox Bairn specializes in making custom family history charts — a great choice for the family history fan you call mummy!

    25. Bushel & Pecks has delectable preserved foods you can give your mom to add some pizzazz to your parents' impressive food storage collection. That is, unless it gets eaten first (warning: it will get eaten first).

    26. American Plant Exchange — a fun switch from traditional bouquets, this shop has dozens of hearty plants to chose from. Grab one of these to show your mom you're really glad to be ~buds~ now that you're all grown up.

    27. In Good Taste, because wine might be a classic Mother's Day gift but a wine tasting (particularly one that can be done at home) is exactly the kind of gift your mama might want. That is, if you two share such good ~taste~ in gifts.

    28. Nonily Studio has a wide selection of minimalist wall art prints you can download straight to your computer, truly saving the day if you didn't remember to get a Mother's Day gift until the last minute.

    29. Naturally London's products are all made with non-toxic and organic-certified ingredients. Shop by foot condition (i.e. dirty, dry, stinky, sweaty, etc.) so you don't have to feel de-feet-ed by digging through a bunch of products to figure out what is best for your mother.

    30. Made By Vermonters has a selection of fun customizable paper goods. Get confetti of your mama's face (or her beloved Pomeranian) to decorate with on her special day.

    31. Allison Brights — this shop's rad collection of string lights is gonna add a cozy, cool, or mystical touch to your mom's famous garden parties (seriously, pick the vibe she would want and they have lights to go with it). Sure, stars are great, but they've got nothing on these beauties.
