Mother’s Day gift ideas from local shops and makers in the Raleigh area

IMPORTANT NOTE: Raleigh Convergence is no longer publishing, as of April 1, 2022. Read more.

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]

OMGEEE!!! Mother’s Day is right around the corner!!! That’s right folks! MAY 10th! Your Mom is the Bomb-Dot-Com. You know it. We know it. We also know that Mother's Day is different for everyone and every family and that it can be a very delicate time for some of us. Moms come in all shapes, sizes, genders, and sometimes, if you're lucky enough, you have more than one! Women, men, grandparents, neighbors, aunts and uncles, no matter who they are, this is a time to celebrate the mother figures in YOUR life, a time to stop and say, "Hey, THANK YOU!" Put your mind at ease..because WE GOT YOU COVERED! CARDS ✔️ BOSS ASS MYSTERY BOXES ✔️ BITCHIN’ TRAVEL MUGS✔️ SEXY SOOTHING TREATS FOR YOU BOD AND MIND✔️ BEAUTIFUL HANDMADE MASKS ✔️ Ok…that last one felt weird.
