Show your Mom some Mother’s Day love with an item or two from this fresh list of Mother’s Day gifts. Then get ready for a big squuuueeeeeze hug from the one who loves you like nobody else!
A Gift for the Mom Who Loves to Be Pampered
A 50-minute Shirodhara at Woodhouse Day Spa. Starting with warm oil gently poured onto her forehead, this massage technique focuses on the scalp from where the tension will all flow away. What mom wouldn’t love that kind of luxury? Book here for a Mother’s Day package at the centrally located location at 3600 N. Capital of Texas Highway, or book here for an experience at the Cedar Park location.

A Gift for the Mom Who Has a Sweet Tooth
Does your mom have a little bit of a sweet tooth? If so, she will simply adore an assortment of fine chocolates from Austin’s own Chocolaterie Tessa. If you need Mom to fix the hem on your favorite pair of black pants, then butter her up by adding a small tub of Tessa’s salted butter caramels. They are amazing! Visit the Burnet store or Tessa’s second location at the Domain – or shop bestsellers here to mail a beautiful blue box of chocolates to your mom who lives in another city.
Photo taken at Chocolaterie Tessa’s grand opening – Northside at the Domain. I thought the logo on the window looked pretty, but the chocolates inside were amazing. My favorite is the Italian chocolate-covered cherry, hands down.
A Gift for the Mom Who Loves to Craft
Is your mom the crafty kind? Then she’s in for a Mother’s Day treat when you sign her up for a Fun Friday class at Board & Brush.

A Gift for the Thrifty Mom
Some moms go wild over a true blue bargain. If that’s your mom, take her out for shopping and lunch somewhere afterwards to celebrate her finds. This photo comes from a friend who came home from the Far West GW Boutique with golf bag, clubs and three pairs of never-worn sandals for $19.95!
A Gift for the List-Making Momma
It’s really a big deal that Erin Condren chose to position her flagship store in Austin, y’all. And if you get your mom one of these cute spiral-bound notebooks, she’ll think it’s a really great Mother’s Day gift.
A Gift for the Hospitable Mom
Since Austin’s own Kendra Scott just released her new line of scented candles, every mother will be wanting one, especially if she’s the kind who loves entertaining and always has a candle burning. You simply can’t go wrong with one of these beautiful babies from Kendra.

A Gift for the Stylish Mom
Tucked away under a gray and white striped awning in the coziest corner of retail space on Lohman’s Crossing is Steel Magnolia Marketplace, my favorite gift store.* If your mom is the Southern definition of “eat up with style,” she’ll be thrilled with anything you bring her from this place, where the “purveyors of Southern charm” have stocked one gorgeous shelf after another with delightful paper goods, candles, lotions, accessories and more. One trip to Steel Magnolia Marketplace will have you hooked! Speaking of hooked – Zenzii earrings are a must-have accessory these days. Their drop earrings are described as “jawdropping earrings,” which means that when you see someone wearing them, you notice. So, if your mom is a stylish southern gal, make her happy this Mother’s Day with a pair of extraordinary Zenzii’s from Steel Magnolia Marketplace.
Which kind of mom is yours? Is she stylish and always out front leading the pack? Maybe she’s more the quiet type who loves sending sweet cards to people who need encouragement? Maybe she’s sporty and needs a good massage to work out the workout kinks!
Whichever she is, may your gift let her know just how glad you are that she’s yours.
