Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 13, so the Edmonds Downtown Alliance has put together this guide so you can find your mom the exact right gift here in Edmonds.
Save the trip to the mall and shop local this year for a unique present to show just how thoughtful you are!
Green Thumb Mom
For the mom who loves to spend time in the garden, look no further than Garden Gear. There you’ll find a curated selection of premium garden tools, whimsical garden art, and tons of great gardening accessories. They carry items essential to both beginner as well as expert gardeners!
Kids can also create a fantastic gift at the annual Edmonds in Bloom Kids Plant for Mom’s Day taking place Saturday, May 12th at the Farmers Market. A $10 donation to cover the cost of materials is what they request and you walk away with a special potted plant, ready to gift!
ZINC Art + Interiors features a variety of chic products for the home. The store feels like a high end gallery but inside you will find items in a wide range of prices. From stationery with clever sayings to modern home décor and art to stunning jewelry, you are sure to discover a dazzling gift to delight your hip mama.
Alright, some people might consider getting mom something for the kitchen akin to buying her a vacuum cleaner. However, for the woman who loves to cook, The Wooden Spoon is a treasure trove of kitchen goodness. From bakeware to specialty tools to kitchen décor and everything in between, you are certain to find the perfect gift for any foodie mama!
Housewares is another gem in Edmonds that carries beautiful dinnerware, delicious foodie finds, candles, and pretty kitchen accessories. They also feature luxurious bath products and stylish décor as well.
Edmonds is home to several great boutiques including Sound Styles right on the corner of 5th and Main. You’ve probably noticed their fantastic seasonal window displays and the clothing they carry is just as great. Their staff is happy to offer advice and share their top seasonal picks that suit a variety of styles and tastes.
If a special piece of jewelry is what you are after, stop in at Saetia. They take pride in their hand-picked selection of special items. There you can find statement necklaces, items from local artisans, and unique upcycled pieces.
For the mom who loves a good read, Edmonds Bookshop should be on your shopping itinerary. They pride themselves on matching avid readers with the perfect book. So even if you only know one of your mom’s favorite already-read titles, they can help you find the right fit for her interests.
If you also love books why not plan to participate in their monthly book club together? Make your Mother’s Day gift something to enjoy through the year! For more information on the Edmonds Bookshop book club, visit their website or call 425-775-2789.
Tea Time Mom
Moms who love tea will certainly enjoy a gift from Treasures and Tea. Their “Great Wall of Tea” features over 200 loose leaf varieties from all over the world. They also carry packaged teas, mugs, infusers, tea accessories, and classic tea sets from across the globe.
‘Has Everything’ Mom
If your mom is hard to shop for, C’est La Vie is your go-to gift buying spot. This adorable boutique features a little bit of everything from gorgeous accessories, great home décor, stylish jewelry, and more. On Saturday, May 12th kids can create their own handmade Mother’s Day card at the store, too!
And if you are still stumped but know your mom loves hand-made crafts from local artisans, you must check out Edmonds Spring Fest taking place at Civic Field on May 12. An offshoot of the local Seattle fave Urban Craft Uprising, Edmonds Spring Fest will bring together 100-plus different craft and food vendors in a one-day event. A bonus to look for is that with each Spring Fest purchase, you will receive a card with special discounts at local downtown Edmonds retailers, too!
