Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Here is our short list of items found locally, with all price points represented. Now go get Mom something she’ll love!
Perfume is one of those classically elegant gifts that many women love. We discovered these fantastic scents for $110 at Woo Skincare + Cosmetics. Capped with colored stones, the bottles alone are enough to make us want to buy them! This is a gift that makes a mom feel pretty and pampered.
Gin Fizz perfume
Another option for the mom who loves her scents! This one is from Lubin, Paris, and was created in honor of Grace Kelly in 1955 by Henri Giboulet. The scent is just what we would imagine a Princess Grace-inspired perfume to smell like: chic, sparkling and fresh. This scent is hard to find, but it’s available in Nashville at The Willow Tree. A small bottle sells for $125; the large is $175.
Whether Mom’s an avid bird-watcher or simply loves colorful additions to her blooming garden, this bright and cheery birdhouse at Gardens of Babylon can satisfy both passions. The crafted metal house is rustic and fun … a perfect landing spot for aviary friends! Find it for $32.99.
Has she been dropping hints that she really needs a new dining table? Well, this 8-foot-long table is just the ticket for everyday meals, as well as elaborate gatherings. If eight feet is too long, you can order the table smaller at 5, 6 or 7 feet. Note the drawers, which ensure linens can be kept close. The top is made of reclaimed teak, and it’s a Merridian Home Furnishings best-seller. We can certainly see why! $1,095
Subscription to flower magazine
Buy Mom a bouquet of flowers. And to make the gift last longer than the few days the flowers will be fresh, add a year’s subscription to flower magazine. Arriving every two months, this subscription will keep her smiling all year long! $19.99/one year; subscribe here
Who appreciates pillows most in the house? Who wants to snap her fingers and have a mini-makeover for a gathering room in the house? The likely answer to both is MOM! Have her pick out some beauties at Bradford’s Interiors, or surprise her with a gift certificate, and they’ll be happily fluffed all season long.
Carla Hall Petite Cookies
For moms with discerning palates, Carla Hall Petite Cookies (you know she’s a Nashville gal, right?!) are the perfect gift option. Available in a variety of delicious flavors—cheddar pecan; oatmeal, cranberry, white chocolate; lemon black pepper shortbread, to name a few—the tiny bites are perfect for a sweet or savory treat whenever the craving strikes. Find them at Hey Rooster General Store in East Nashville for $8.50.
Scented candle in a pretty container
Giving a candle as a gift may seem cliché, but any woman would cherish one of these beauties. Discovered at Corzine & Co., these textured glass candles are made by the exclusive line Agraria. Not only do they emit a fantastic scent, they are each topped with a decorative porcelain cap designed by Herend, which also keeps dust from accumulating. $55, lids are $70
It can be risky to pick out a handbag for Mom, but you can’t go wrong with these woven clutches, available for $330 at AshBlue. Made by the London-based luxury brand Wilbur and Gussie, these elephant-studded clutches are a must-have for any lady’s spring wardrobe!
Some kitchen items are purely utilitarian, but others are also decorative. For instance, this gorgeous Ironstone cheese board from Providence Interiors is the perfect entertaining piece. Paired with the Somerset cheese knives, which are equally delicious, this board makes a fantastic Mother’s Day gift! $96 (board) and $52.50 (knives)
Harpeth Gallery in Green Hills has gorgeous gifts for any occasion, but this decorative salad bowl just screams Mother’s Day!

Bracelets that go with everything
Add some sparkle to a casual outfit, or perfectly pair a fancier one. Either way she wants these bracelets to work, Mom’s covered! Made with 14K gold and diamonds, some feature freshwater pearls, as well. Each makes a wow statement on its own or stacked up. $439 to $825 at Anatra Jewel

The Beveled Edge is one of our top go-tos for gifts. Whether you’re looking for a card, candle, dish or local find, they have it all. We landed on these stunning Le Cadeaux plates for Mother’s Day. Designed to resemble ceramic or porcelain, the dishes are crafted in melamine (dishwasher-safe and shock-resistant) with elegant French patterns. Perfect for the mom who loves to dine outside without all the hassle. Find this line of dinnerware at The Beveled Edge.
This Mother’s Day, get your mom something sentimental that she will treasure for years to come. These birthstone rings, from Cindi Earl, are the perfect combination of simplicity and elegance. They can be worn individually or stacked (to represent all the children). The rings are available in every month’s stone with white gold or yellow gold accenting. The rings start around $800 and vary depending on the stone. Find these at Cindi Earl Fine Jewelry.
If your mom is a wine lover and an entertainer, these cooling wine glasses are the perfect gift. They guarantee to keep wine at a cool temperature during the hot summer days. The gel at the bottom of the glass will stay cold for hours, and the rubber grip ensures her hand won’t get as cold as she drinks. Pick up a two-pack at Fabu for $30.

The perfect dress
While it is usually our mothers buying us clothes, this year we are mixing things up. Moms of any age will love this lightweight, sleeveless dress from J.McLaughlin. The team at J.McLaughlin can help you find your mom’s size if she has shopped there before, and they make returns and exchanges a breeze. Want to do something extra special? Give her this dress and invite her somewhere to wear it! Plaid dress for $188 at J.McLaughlin
Exfoliators and body scrub
This year, if you can’t afford to take your mother to the spa, bring the spa to her. The Cosmetic Market carries a line of exfoliators that we know moms will love. You can buy her the facial sponge, bath mitt, body exfoliator or all three. For an added bonus, pick up a bottle of Therapy Systems scrub. The exfoliators range in price from $12 to $35 and can be found at The Cosmetic Market.
