Mother’s Day will be here before you know it! While we always value shopping local, now is an extra important time to invest your income in your local economy. You can support local businesses, encourage holistic wellness, and put together great gifts for the moms in your life — a triple win! Check out our 6 ideas for locally-sourced Mother’s Day gifts that are good for the body and soul:
For the stressed-out mom
Frederick Chiropractic Wellness Center is still open for business! Has your mom complained about any acute pain lately? Set up an appointment to get your mom started on her chiropractic health journey. Or, get her set up with online classes from Yogamour! She’ll love knowing that you care about both her physical and mental health!
For the creative mom
If your mom loves to keep her mind and hands busy with something creative, consider getting her a craft she can do alone, such as a knitted scarf kit from The Knot House. Or, if she’s craving quality time with the kids or (social distant) time with her grandchildren, grab a few of these craft kits from Give Rise Studio.
For the foodie mom
Even women who love to cook enjoy a day off from kitchen duties! Place an order ahead of time to reserve a scrumptious meal for her to enjoy on her special day. Several downtown Frederick businesses are offering special Mother’s Day menus, such as The Wine Kitchen, Dutch’s Daughter, and Serendipity Market.
Or, send her chocolates from Zoe’s or have wine delivered from Spin the Bottle!
For the generous mom
One of the most healthy mindsets we can adopt is one of gratitude and generosity. Does your mom enjoy volunteering or charitable giving? Make a donation in her name to a cause she cares about, such as United Way, Habitat for Humanity, Blessings in a Backpack, or Heartly House. There are dozens of charities in our community — find the full list here!
If you’d rather treat the woman who is usually treating others, surprise her with a Downtown Frederick gift card, which allows her to shop at participating stores. Or, call a local florist and have flowers delivered to her doorstep!
For the book lover
Everyone could use a break from reality right now. Give a mom you know an escape to a faraway land, send her into a dazzling mystery, or inspire her with a true story — through book form! Place an order with Curious Iguana and add in a book for yourself while you’re at it. Not sure what kind of book to order? Email the owner and describe the recipient’s taste, and she’ll send you a few recommendations!
For the coffee or tea fanatic
We’re all missing visits to our favorite cafés right now. Bring the coffee or tea shop to her door with coffee of the month club from Dublin Roasters, or a delivery of tea from Shab Row Tea Emporium.
We hope you feel inspired by these fun ideas for treating the moms in your life!
