Westchester Moms Will Love These Local Mother’s Day Presents

This Mother’s Day, shop from local, online stores and makers for a one-of-a-kind gift that mom is sure to appreciate.

Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that creeps up on you. As the weather warms up and the sun shines bright in the sky, it’s all too easy to get caught up with plans for backyard picnics and home cooking and, inevitably, forget about mom’s big day. When you eventually remember a few days before the occasion, you’re stuck with a mad dash online to find something, anything to show mom you care.

Instead of falling back on flowers and an e-card, get your act together ahead of schedule and treat her to a present that she will ooh and aah over for years to come. With the help of Etsy and these local Hudson Valley artisans, the golden gift for mother dearest is only a click away.

Top Pick: Retro Container Beeswax Candle

This candle is a mom-approved pick for oh so many reasons. Not only does it come in a gorgeous container, but it also ships from nearby Beacon. It’s a treat to have at home, thanks to its light honey scent and 65-hour burn time. Be warned — mom may want you to pre-order next year’s Mother’s Day candle once she gives this one a go.


Location: Newburgh
Top Pick: Mother’s Day Lilies Card

Are there any first-time mothers in your midst? Show them some love with this illustrated greeting card. The pretty floral graphic looks like a page straight out of a children’s storybook. Inscribe a sentimental note into it for a keepsake she will cherish for years.

You can’t go wrong with a beautifully designed ivory and blue throw blanket as a Mother’s Day gift.

T&J Handcrafted Soap

Top Pick: Victorian Rose Lotion

Is mom’s fragrance collection the stuff of legend? Keep the sweet smells going with a lovely lotion from T&J Handcrafted Soap. The Troy-based brand uses natural ingredients like beeswax, which seals moisture, and avocado oil, which nourishes the skin. As for the scent, Victorian rose is a little romantic and perfectly floral.


Location: Kingston
Top Pick: You Rock Mom Card

Give mom the next step up from a store-bought card by scribbling a thoughtful message into this Art Deco beauty. Although this particular card is ideal for the holiday, Wishbone sells a number of sassier options as well.
