Friday 5: Pacific Northwest Gifts for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11. We know you would never forget this special holiday, but just in case you know someone who might still be searching for the perfect gift, here’s a selection of locally sourced options for your favorite mom.
Jewelry, because you can’t go wrong
For the mom with fun and funky taste in jewelry, try a bold statement necklace. More classic moms might like this mother-and-child cameo pendant. And this modern, personalized necklace with a raw diamond bead would be a great gift year-round.
Warm her heart and toes
Wasn’t Mom always nagging you to wear your rain boots? Now you can return the favor with these fleece boot liners (very Pacific Northwest).
If Mom’s a little nutty
If your mom is nuts, you might as well celebrate that fact with this charming little felted squirrel.
For the cook
For the foodie (and pop-culture-savvy) mom, how about a sassy embroidered dish towel? Or sign yourself and your mom up for a cooking class or sample-filled author reading at Book Larder. Molly Wizenberg, of Orangette and Delancey Pizza, has an upcoming author reading of her new memoir Delancey. Eastern Washington moms can take cooking classes at the Kitchen Engine or Williams-Sonoma in Spokane.
The gift of time
If the Mom on your list has young children, try giving the gift of a little time off. Take her little ones to the playground for a few hours, babysit so she can have a date night (or girl’s night), or schedule a message or spa day for her.
