Show your mother appreciation this Sunday with some shiny jewelry. We love the adorable selection of personalized charms at Brooklyn Charm. The Williamsburg shop is also giving away free charm necklaces to mothers and their kids who visit our store from the hours of 10-1 on Mother’s Day. The mother has to accompany the children, and vice versa, both will get a free charm and chain. If your mother likes more feminine pieces, check out Kira Kira Jewelry who has a 10 percent discount through Sunday right now. Looking for something more natural, visit Friedasophie who incorporates organic shapes and gemstones in her designs.

After all the hard work of raising children, it’s time for your mother to relax. Treat her to calming spa products. The soap and candle gift boxes from Ebb and Flow pack a lot of punch. We’re also keen on Meow Meow Tweet with their organic vegan products ideal for the “Earth Mother” in your life. If you’re looking for more than just soaps, San Francisco-based Heliotrope carries soy massage candles and aromatherapy mists. If you’re still in doubt, pick up some neutral beeswax candles from Beehive Alchemy.

Artisanal Food

If you live in Brooklyn, a delivery of artisinal ice cream will please your mother more than a bland bouquet. Check out the unique flavors available through Phin and Phebes. If she has a likening to spice, then you’re sure to do right with a selection of heated rubs and jellies at Texana Lane from Austin. Saucy By Nature offers a wide range of chutneys and sauces your mom won’t want to put down.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, chances are your mother is still carrying around emergency bandaids and snacks in her purse. It’s time to treat her to a new handbag and Krrb’s got the scoop on some pretty options. If mom likes the feel of leather, pay a visit to Hawk and Carry, where the lush bags are handmade. If you’re looking for something with structure, Commeun carries Indonesian handwoven tote bags. For the mother on the go, you can’t go wrong with a messenger bag from Whether Bags, which come in a range of colors and prints.

Flowers and Plants

Flowers are the quintessential Mother’s Day gift. While we’re not hating on the tried and true bouquet of blooms, we do think you could do a little better. Twig Terrariums sells personalized moss terrariums and miniature DIY kits for those crafty mothers. If she doesn’t quite have a green thumb, pick up a striking air plant design by Roots in Rust at the Dekalb Market in Brooklyn. When mom prefers her flowers dried, head to Raganella for natural tea mixes made of flowers and herbs.

    Actually i followed the advice of the soap, and i made an special blend of scents using the my mom’s favorite flowers/plants (calendula, lemon verbena, with a touch of lavender). She was happy and since then i got hooked with the soap making art.
