Gosh we love Mom. And also Dad. And also Caretakers. And also Pet Moms and Parents. Also Mentors. Honestly, any kind human who’s there for us when we need them.

But since greeting card companies have declared the second Sunday in May as the day to celebrate all things MOM, we’ve put together this handy little guide for you to shop for that special human in your life that makes things better – which might just be yourself.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

The obvious go to gift for mom is flowers and treats. Pre-order these gorgeous Mother’s Day blooms until the end of April from Helios Floral. Order handmade pastries and decadent delights from Lulu’s Pantry, Jolie Tea Company, Kim’s Pure Pastry, or Rosadela’s.

Pick up something shiny like these custom designed Ivy Leaf Gem Stone Earrings from Jenni Stuart Fine Jewelry, a Priestess Crown from Pentagram Shoppe, Colorful handmade resin & collage earrings from Why Not Jewelry by Kirsty, Lapis Pentacle Earrings from Crystal Visions Salem, Flash Earrings from Hypnovamp, the Ravenstone collection at Coon’s Cards and Gifts, The Maiden Headpiece from Mystical Inspirations, or half dipped token earrings from Digs Enamels.

Looking for an experience that’s designed with Mom in mind? Reserve a spot for a wine tasting at Lucille Wine Shop and Tasting Room, take a guided tour of Salem (check out the “The White Family: Love, Ambition, and Sorrow” tour with Dynamic History Salem, the “Dark Stories of Salem” tour with Better than Fiction, or the Salem Night Tour), or plan a Mom and Me crafting night with Create and Escape DIY Workshops or Broommaking with The Witchery.

You can also gift the best in North Shore entertainment with tickets to shows at North Shore Music Theatre, The Cabot, or Marblehead Little Theatre.

Give Mom the gift of self-care and wellness with a massage session from Serendipitous Souls or Freedom Massage, a date with the brow bar at Prettyology, yoga classes from Soul City Yoga or The Salty Buddha, or a private sound healing with Sound Healing for the Soul.

For something to wrap, try the Discovery Kit from Tasteful Skin, cbd body butter from Harmony Harvest, Marimo Moss Prosperity from Salem Plant Witch, or the Blossom Bath and Body Oil from Coven Beauty Company.

Still on the hunt for that special something? How about some handmade art from a local artist or maker , like this Red Poppies Large Tarot Bag from RenLorian Crafts, the Tropical Waters Charcuterie Board from Studio Feron, the Elder Goth Winter Beach Bag from Keep Salem Odd, Fiber Witch Boxes from Circle of Stitches, Design Your Own Witch Hat from Savor Designs, the embroidered Rose Bee Sweatshirt from Sewbaloo, or the Salt Cellar Gift Set from Salter’s Point Provisions.

For Pet Moms, how about a gift certificate to a pet photo session from FrogBailey, a Lucky Eye Bone Pet Tag from Greekmadness, or this Bleach Bassett T-shirt from Forest Haunt.

Timeless Life Treasures will also be hosting a four day retail sales event from May 5-8th with 20% off everything in-store.
