Luxe and Local Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Spoil mom while supporting small businesses with these Southwest Florida finds.

Right about now, the best gift you can probably give anyone is a chic protective face mask (we found several cute options made locally). But then again, mom probably also deserves to have her life sweetened up with something not COVID-related. That’s why we scoured some of our favorite local shops to find just the right gift for the amazing mothers in your life (or for yourself, if you happen to be a mom reading this). 

Though many of these retailers can offer same-day service or delivery within a couple days, some of the items that are made-to-order may not make it in time. Still, we have a feeling mom will appreciate any of these treats whenever they arrive. You could always select a few items to arrive on stacked dates. Doesn’t the woman who raised you deserve to be celebrated on more than just one day? 

  • For sentimental moms… a Marissa Collections custom Monica Rich Kosann locket, personalized with child’s painting or other photo inside (use code SPOILMOM15 at checkout for 15%; offer valid 5/1-7) 

  • For moms with a sweet tooth… chocolates from Norman Love’s Mother’s Day Collection with flavors like snickerdoodle and rosé 

  • For yogi moms… Anya + Niki’s The Baldwin Yoga Mat; it’s sleek and has an exterior zipper for storing smaller item

  • For moms (and giftees) who want to give back… a digital art print from Muffy Clark Gill that supports The Shelter for Abused Women & Children (the artist is also offering 25% off her entire store for Mother’s Day) 

  • For glam moms… DMA Cosmetics’ Bombshell Red Lipstick—perfect for Zoom cocktail parties and when gala season resumes

  • For art-loving moms… Any piece from DAAS CO-OP —you’ll be supporting a local artist with any purchase

  • For moms dying to get back to the salon… a gift card from trendy downtown Naples’ Paint Nail Bar  

  • For caffeine-loving moms… the new City of Palms Blend from Fort Myers’ Shift Coffee Bar 

  • For eco-conscious, fresh scent-loving moms… Naples Soap Company’s all-natural, low-waste holiday gift set (we love the Florida Fresh package!)   

  • For Naples-loving moms… Mary Smallwood’s Nexus Naples handbag (the designer has a flash sale going on with 40% off select styles, through May 8)

  • For outdoorsy moms… a gift card for a Sunset Bird Rookery Kayak Tour with Rising Tide Explorers—the tour culminates with seeing the roughly 1,000 birds that land on the namesake rookery at sundown 

  • For moms who love to cook… Estero Bay Olive Oil’s infused, organic oils ; they’ll make anything taste better

  • For moms who could use a break from the kitchen … a few day’s worth of Crave2Go meals and/or The French’s Mother’s Day brunch (why not both?)
