9 Creative Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Boston Moms

Read next


While we know one day is hardly enough to celebrate all that moms do, we’ve scoured the city in search of unique Mother’s Day gifts that will make Mom feel extra special on her day (hint: breakfast in bed or a glorious spring hike are always a hit, too.) Whether you’re looking for a special mom, grandma, aunt or other mother figure in your life (or just dropping hints to your own family), these gifts will surely make her smile. We’ve done the hard part, now it’s up to you to grab one of these great gifts from a local Boston shop.

For moms who aim for zero waste

You won’t find any plastic at either of these shops, but what you will find are earth-friendly, sustainable products. It’s like giving two Mother’s Day gifts this year. Whatever makes her smile—soaps, face serum, wool dryer balls—you get the picture, Uvida has it and more. And if she needs a refill on any shampoos, gels or lotions, you can top off her favorites when you shop.

For moms who may (or may not) have a green thumb

Green thumb or not, you can help mom add green to her décor at Wesleaf Designs & Décor. You’ll find everything you need for a Mother’s Day gift that connects mom to nature, from hanging house plants to succulents and framed mosses. But what we love the most are the plant consultations with shop owner, Weslie Etienne Pierre, who’s always willing to lend her expertise to budding green thumbs.

For moms who are the world's best

While there are lots of amazing Mother’s Day gift options at this popular gift store that highlights local makers (and gives back too), we’re eyeing the World’s Best Mom Gift Box this year. Rest and relaxation is the theme of this box filled with bath salts, sweet treats and candle and more. Pick one up at the shop, or ship one to the mother figure in your life.

For moms who want peace and quiet

Help mom find her zen at this studio focused on holistic wellness. Yoga classes are a great place to start, and they’ve got lots of classes and pricing options so you can pick that just-right combo for your Mother’s Day gift. Massage is another option offered here. Breathe deep and make a trip to this studio in Dorchester.

For moms who have everything

If Mom’s got everything under the sun, and isn’t looking to add to her clutt…er…collection, why not give the gift of being a polli-neighbor? You can help the local pollinators thrive when you sponsor a butterfly, bird or bee through the Greenway. Not only will mom support the environment, but she’ll get a few tangible perks too. We’re talking cards, stickers and maybe even honey. Psst.. The Greenway Artisan Market returns on May 7, just in time for some last-minute Mother’s Day shopping.

For moms who want to get (or stay) fit

Whatever mom's fitness goals, she can count on Tina Ramos, owner and founder of CrossFit Boston Iron & Grit, to get her there. This Harvard-educated teacher brings her experience and her passion for fitness to work each day, helping folks meet (and exceed) their fitness goals. After an initial assessment, she’ll be on her way.

Candy for mom is a classic Mother's Day gift for a reason. But you’ll find more than your run-of-the-mill chocolates here.
