If you have a mother (or mother figure) in your life, it’s time to start thinking about the way you’ll celebrate Mother’s Day!

May 10 will be here soon, especially if you’re shipping a gift for long distance or social distance reasons.

Shops and makers in the Raleigh area are getting creative to help you honor moms with the added bonus of supporting local. Here are a few ideas.

Edge of Urge:

The creative curators behind Downtown Raleigh’s Edge of Urge and Renew House of Self Love know how to treat the moms in your life right. Select a Mom Mystery Box and they’ll select the goodies. Pick a budget and consider adding on a mug from Liz Kelly Pottery (is she a Dolly or a Lizzo, among many options?) Bonus: They’ll even add a note to call you before opening! [order]

The Local Squirrel:

The Cameron Village shop created a few bundles for different types of moms: Treat Yourself with self-care goodies, Plant Mama for the green thumb mom, and Homebody for a bundle of gifts she can definitely use now. Call or text 919-610-3400. It’s gift-wrapped, too!

Their Mother’s Day gift basket includes local chocolates from Videri and coffee caramels from Slingshot Coffee, a Raleigh mug, a bottle of wine and more. [Order]
