Hyperlocal Mother’s Day Gift Guide

May 07, 2020

There’s finally an excuse to buy something other than paper towels, hand sanitizer, and peanut butter. I give you: MOTHER’S DAY 2020, the year that mothers demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that they are worthy of your love … and many, many thoughtful gifts.

Our roundup includes ideas sourced from our own members, partners, and local favorites. If you’re going to spend that money you were saving to hoard TP, it should be spent thoughtfully—with local businesses who need your support to stay in operation. Don’t worry, Target’s going to still be there when this is all over, so instead shop with people you know and love!
