Field of Dreams Bouquet

Bella’s Floral Design, Lynnfield

Heading the traditional route with flowers? Make it a bouquet she’ll remember with a selection from Bella’s Floral Design in Lynnfield. Their stunning “Field of Dreams” bunch features lilac, peonies, and roses, or look at their other bouquet choices, like “Nantucket” or “English Garden.” You can pick up the flowers curbside this Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, or have them delivered for around $10 or $15.

Prada Sunglasses

Chic Consignment, Andover

Chic Consignment offers some of the most stylish thrift finds around—and if you order from their website by tomorrow (May 5), you can have your Mother’s Day gift delivered to your door by Sunday! Our pick is a pair of classy black Prada sunglasses, though she may be equally tempted by this Chloe handbag or Givenchy sneakers.

Canned Local Brews

True North Ale Company, Ipswich

Is she a beer lady? Even though taprooms are currently shuttered statewide, you can still pick up cans or growlers to-go from many local breweries. One of our favorite local brew houses is True North Ale Company in Ipswich. Pick up cans of their Northern Haze IPA or Vincianne Belgian blond ale. Other spots offering brews to-go include Notch Brewing, Great Marsh Brewing, and Ipswich Ale Brewery.

TB Jewelry Clutch

Tesoro, Middleton

Give to the community while giving to mom this year with Tesoro Boston’s jewelry clutch made from vegan leather and available in black, pink, or silver. Tesoro is donating 10% of all proceeds from clutch sales to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Perfect for storing all her treasures and trinkets, each bag purchased supplies 15 meals to those in need.

Bake her favorite dessert

Personalize her Mother’s Day gift this year by getting creative in the kitchen. Try cupcakes or cookies from scratch if you’re a beginner, or try something more advanced like puff pastry, homemade churros, or lemon bars. Incorporate her favorite flavors and the possibilities are endless! Shop for quality, farm fresh ingredients from local shops like Appleton Farms in Ipswich.
