Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs you can have. So, when that special day comes to celebrate them, you don’t want to mess it up. Everyone wants their moms to feel appreciated. What better way than with a gift?

local Mother's Day Gift Ideas

We asked our contributors to share some of their favorite local Mother’s Day gift ideas, and now we are sharing them with you. Not only do we have local Mother’s Day gifts, but we have ideas for experiences too.

So, if you’re having trouble finding a gift for the mother in your life, or if you, mom, need some ideas to give to your family, check out what some of our Milwaukee Mom Contributors came up with.

Things to do…or not do

Alone time was high on the list for some moms. It doesn’t mean we don’t love spending time with our family, but having a day free from demands is huge—no one wanting a meal, making a mess, or asking for anything. Sometimes lots of silence is all some moms need to feel appreciated.

So, pack the kids up and take them on a drive or to a park. Or send mom to a local hotel for the whole day. Let mom relax and enjoy the silence.

How about a clean house that has been cleaned by someone else? Yes, please! With locations in Cedarburg, Brookfield, and Racine, The Cleaning Authority offers many services, including a one-time cleaning, which is perfect for Mother’s Day.

Glassnote Candle Bar is an amazing idea for the candle lover in your house. You can gift the experience of going and making their own candle. Not only can you create your own signature scent, but you can enjoy a cocktail while you do it. Go ahead of time and make mom a candle out of her favorite scents. Glassnote is currently open and following COVID precautions.

Gifts from the heart

Want to show mom how much you care with a gift? There are many local shops to find something unique.

Looking for some personalized apparel? How about a Milwaukee Mama sweatshirt from Raising Good.

Sparrow Collective also offers some local apparel and a wide variety of products from local artists and artisans. Jewelry, stationary, and even plants are just a few of the options.

The Wax Wing is an online-only curated shop. From bath bombs to local chocolate bars, you’ll be sure to find something mom loves.

Speaking of chocolate…as traditional as flowers and candy may be, there’s a reason for that. Moms still love them! 414loral is a great local option with beautiful flowers. They are currently open for walk-ins on Saturdays or open anytime online. Check out this list of local candy shops for all of your candy needs, including hot chocolate bombs.

Gift cards to any of the above shops, local restaurants, or coffee shops were also high on the list as local Mother’s Day gifts for our Milwaukee Moms.
