Mother’s Day Shopping
Mother’s Day is here, and you’re probably wondering what gift could possibly be worthy of the most important woman in your life – fortunately, we have you covered with some praiseworthy local spots and gift recommendations to make the process as easy as possible.
Alixandra Collections – www.shopalix.com
Alixandra Collections is great for fun, comfortable clothing that’s perfect for warm Arizona summers and beach vacations – but for mother’s day we love the idea of the custom boutique nameplates. These décor pieces are about a foot and a half tall and can be customized to spell out a full name, just an initial or a traditional monogram. We think they make for meaningful decorations that are guaranteed to be conversation starters for years to come.
For the People – www.forthepeoplestore.com
For unique, funky furniture, accessories and gifts, For the People is the way to go. We like these minimalist concrete candles that come in a variety of colors like indigo, white, gold and mint and an even better selection of distinctive scents like driftwood and indigo, tobacco and patchouli, amber and smoke and sea salt and sage.
Frances Vintage – www.francesvintage.com
Frances just celebrated ten years in business and we can’t say we’re surprised – the boutique curates items from several of the Valley’s best local artists, making it a hands down, local favorite. From cards to apparel, they have everything you could need to put together a great Mother’s Day gift. We especially love the “Mom” necklaces by The Shine Project, which are made by Phoenix students. Even better is all proceeds from The Shine Project’s jewelry go directly to scholarships.
Bunky Boutique – www.bunkyboutique.com
Bunky Boutique has it all – from women and men’s clothing to kids accessories. Also, if you’re looking for a great mother’s day gift in a pinch (and are feeling a bit spontaneous) you can opt for the Mother’s Day Bunky Box, which is customized through a questionnaire and is filled with a card and an assortment of clothing, accessories, paper goods, skincare and more.
The Paper Place – www.thepaperplaceaz.com
The Paper Place is largely known for its stationary – but its selection of gifts and cards is impressive as well. Plus, it’s a family business, passed on from mother to daughters – making it an incredibly appropriate place to shop for Mother’s Day. Plus, we can’t imagine there’s a Mom that wouldn’t want this customizable wood Lazy Susan that you can engrave with Mom’s name, an important date, or both.
