Mother’s Day is just over a week away. Have you thought about Mom? Planned to call? Remembered that she gave birth to you?
If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’re a woman, so yes, you probably have. 😉 Finding the just right gift can still be a struggle. Need some ideas about what to get for mom this year?
Mother’s Day Gifts She’ll Love
For the mom who loves to accessorize, consider something both beautiful, high quality, and one-of-a-kind by one of these talented artisans:
Amy Johnson Enamels
Is your mom into gorgeous statement pieces of jewelry, or does she fancy pieces with whimsy? Would something in hand that helps her manage worries and anxieties be a blessing to her? Not that moms have anything to worry about ever…
Amy Johnson creates sterling silver spinner rings, copper bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. She solders, saws, fries, and shapes her pieces without manufactured machinery. She patinas her jewelry, darkening and sanding it, so that it pops.
Of her spinner rings Amy says, “People call them worry rings or anxiety rings, fidget rings.” She creates them using brass or 14k gold fill spinners on sterling silver.
You could also buy mom a jewelry making class. Amy teaches at Crossings, Dwell Local, and The Purple Turtle. Her work is available at:
- Dwell Local in Rochester, MN
- Crossings in Zumbrota, MN
- Revelation in Decorah, IA
- The Purple Turtle in Stockholm, WI
Watch for her work to be available at the following locations soon:
- Artworks in Austin, MN
- The Gallery on First in The Marriott Hotel – Subway Level
It will also be available online soon. If you’re too far away from the shops her work is in, you can connect with her on Instagram and Facebook. Need advice on how to shop for jewelry? Click here for some of Amy’s top tips.
Help mom be confidently cute even on her absolute worst hair day with a handmade hat created by Shelly Daood. The right hat can also “keep her beautiful face young and free of the sun.”
Daood’s Mother’s Day Spring / Summer Collection of reversible hats is available in solid linen-blends and printed fabrics. “Linens are great for this time of year because the fabric breathes, it’s colorful and it’s timeless – just like moms!” said Daood.
Shop her full collection of creations online at Bound to be Creative. Want something a little different than what you see online? Daood does custom orders too. You can also connect with her on Instagram and Facebook. Click here to see stores you can shop for her handmade hats and more in, as well as upcoming festivals she’ll be at with her collections.
For the mom who loves to spend time creating in the kitchen.

Love in a Tuscan Kitchen: The Chef’s Wife by Sheryl Ness
The recipes in this book are delicious and Ness’s story is divine. I’ve made several of them and received rounds of smiles in thanks at home. When I met Sheryl and she signed the copy of the book I bought, she wrote “Follow your heart,” in it in red ink. Her journey is both inspiring and romantic.

Save Me the Plums by Ruth Reichl has been called a must-read for food lovers and is on the ever growing list of books I want to read this summer. In the book, Reichl chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of Gourmet magazine.
For the mom who loves to read.
Here are a couple of other books I’m looking forward to reading soon that I think a mom might be excited to receive (I know I would be.):
For the mom who loves nature.
Something floral that lasts longer than flowers:
Or, maybe an inviting and attractive home for birds.
