Local Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Creme Cupcake + Dessert is offering a Mother’s Day package with products from local businesses.

By Karla Walsh

Mother’s Day is going to look a lot different this year. While it might be the most distant and different Mom’s Day of her life, it can also be the most delicious, thanks to these local purveyors. Place your order as soon as possible to beat the rush and have your shopping all set.

Brightside Kitchen and Fresh Cafe & Market: Score a vegan brunch for two ($70) or four ($100) from Brightside’s Chef Hailey Dixon. Either order includes garlic-herb biscuits and mushroom gravy, tofu scramble with breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit and more. (Psst … you’re going to want the optional add-on of four cinnamon rolls for $10. Money very well spent). Limited quantities are available, so place your order on BrightsideKitchen.com sooner rather than later, and it will be delivered to mom’s door between 9 and 11 a.m. on Mother’s Day.

Sisters in Cheese: Haven’t heard of or visited Madrid-based Sisters in Cheese yet? Get a taste of owner Chelsea Johnsen’s beyond Instagram-worthy charcuterie boards to share with Mom this Mother’s Day. For the occasion, Sisters is offering two different 12-inch-by-16-inch meals-in-a-box for $65 each. Included are traditional Essential Grazers (bread, cheese, fruit, meat, veggies and more) and Brunch Grazers (hard-boiled eggs, pastries, bagels, cream cheese, meats). Email orders@sistersincheese.com before noon on May 4 for pickup from 9 a.m. to noon on May 9.

Creme Cupcake + Dessert (and Co.): Can’t decide between something sweet and some spa splurges? Creme Cupcake + Dessert has done the shopping for you so you can deliver both in one $45 package—and support five female-owned businesses at once. Only 100 boxes are available (and all pre-purchases end May 6), so order on Eventbrite as soon as possible to reserve your kit for pickup at Creme from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 9. Each one includes four chocolate and vanilla jewel cake truffles from Creme; a bottle of Zola nail polish from East Village Spa; She’s All Set setting and hydration spray from Vanity & Glamour; Kevin Murphy travel-size hair spray and bobby pins from Elevencherry Salon; and a Mother’s Day card from XO-LP (don’t forget to add a personal message inside!).
