This Mother’s Day, shop from local, online stores and makers for a one-of-a-kind gift that om 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.
