With Mother's Day just a couple of weeks away, it's time to start prepping for your shining moment — and that of the deserving moms in your life. While moms should never be limited to celebrating their hard work just one day each year, of course Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself, and show loved ones that you care.
Local businesses around Bergen County are ready to help, offering gifts and goodies to make this Mother's Day the most memorable one yet. We turned to them and found adorable, thoughtful gifts, many which are customizable to add that extra touch. While it's hard to believe May is just around the corner, don't wait to grab your favorite finds for the important moms in your life. And don't hesitate to grab some for yourself, too.
Hunt and Orchard's custom Mama pullovers have your name all over them — literally. Grab one of these soft styles that can be personalized with any names you like (or love), with space for up to four names. Order in store or find them on Instagram, and be sure to leave a few days for the customization. Sizes are unisex standard, so size up for a looser fit or grab a typical size for a more cropped style.
Westwood Candy Co. hits the spot if you're on the hunt for that meaningful gift, but aren't quite sure what to buy. Aside from candy (because every Mom deserve a yummy treat), the sweet shop offers fun gifts like decorative wireless phone chargers, playful towels with on-theme sayings, kitchen gear for the ones who like to cook, and so much more. You can even personalize your own keepsake card. Oh, and they ship nationally for that deserving long-distance mom bestie.
Monsoon Flowers is a go-to if you're looking for a reliable gift that is a universal pleaser. We're talking about gorgeous floral arrangements, and Monsoon has tons of vibrant options. Look for multi-color displays, or opt for simple monochromatic flowers in spring-ready yellows, pink, white, and so much more. The Cresskill shop also has gift packages with color-coordinated candles and diffusers.
Plated by D has plenty of options for the foodie, including the custom board company's Mother's Day Brunch Box. The box includes beautifully displayed fruit, waffles, mini OJ bottles, sliced meat, yogurt, and more, neatly packed and ready to be enjoyed. There are a slew of other boards and boxes available, like this Mother's Day drop, so you can customize the one that fits your giftee best.
It's impossible to go wrong with jewelry, and Katie Diamond Jewelry has a variety of bracelets and necklaces for every budget. Find demi-fine pieces like quote bangle bracelets, simple heart necklace, and customizable bar necklaces for that extra personal touch. The Ridgewood-based jewelry store has colorful, bold styles and more subtle jewelry, depending on her style.
Just Break It, a local business in Bergen County, started with breakable hearts and grew into so much more. The biz continues to break hearts...and stars, numbers, and other custom designs with its Mother's Day-fill chocolate heart, which allows you to pick the design and filling inside. The company also recently introduced large-letter Break Its if you're looking to spell out the name of a special Mom.
The Fountain Spa is pretty much synonymous with luxury relaxation, and on Mother's Day, we all deserve a little (or a lot of) pampering. If you want to really splurge on a Mom you love — or subtly invite your significant other to splurge on you — head to this spot for a gift card. This gift is anything but boring, as they're running a Mother's Day special that includes a free Voluspa petite jar candle with the purchase of a $300 gift card, or a free silky pink Fountain robe with a $500 gift card purchase. Grabbing a gift card lets that special Mom customize her own present with the treatements she loves most.
