Mother’s Day Gift Guide

We scoured Litchfield County to find 12 of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas from 12 special local businesses. There’s something here to suit every mother, whether it’s your own mom, or somebody you just think deserves a sweet gift. And, as always, we believe you never need an excuse to treat yourself!

Leitz Leather

Leitz

A favorite in our gift guides, Leitz Leather handcrafted totes, made one-by-one right here in Washington are beyond exquisite. Customize a mini-tote especially for the lady you have in mind, and watch her enjoy this bag forever! Leitz Leather bags are made to order (although they do have a couple ready to ship!) so you can really make it personal with her favorite color, leather, and a monogram. These bags are timeless!

To order, contact Sherry Leitz: 917-734-5044 or email: SherryLeitz@icloud.com Instagram: @leitzleather

Bantam Tileworks

Bantam Tileworks

We fall in love with a different vase, bowl, or platter every time we go into Bantam Tileworks. Pretty sure your mom would love to receive a one of a kind Bantam vase beautifully glazed, and full of flowers. Maybe a set of 4 mugs and some great local coffee…mmm, we’d love that! The only trouble you may have is deciding between all the gorgeous colors they have in their showroom. Just ask one of the artists there, they’ll help you!

Mother Earth Gallery

Mother Earth

Perhaps don’t mention that these are called Witches Balls…just tell her you thought she’d love the way these would look in her window! Mother Earth Gallery in New Milford always has great gifts for your earthy mama, but we zeroed in on these. They catch the sun, ward away evil, and look pretty! They come in different sizes at affordable prices and can be hung or displayed on a stand (which they also sell).

Shop Cathy B

We’re so excited to tell you about Shop Cathy B‘s new store in Woodbury! Freshly opened, just use Mother’s Day gift shopping as an excuse to visit ASAP. Filled with boho/Euro-chic clothing and accessories, and fun bags from Ibiza, we just can’t get enough. The store smelled glorious the other day when we went to get a sneak peak, thanks to the NEST candles and diffusers Cathy B is carrying. Good gift alert! Located at 428 Main Street Street (in the courtyard).

Fife ‘n Drum Gift Shop

The Fife n’ Drum Gift Shop in Kent is suggesting these great versatile tops for Mother’s Day. We’re told these have been the top seller at the store recently. They come in happy spring colors, are super soft, and are just plain easy to wear. They also have loads of pretty scarves, so throw one of those into the gift box too, she deserves it!  Gift wrapping is free. Besides that suggestion, they also have great smelling candles, tableware, purses, jewelry, and more! Go visit, then have lunch next door 😉

Joie Maison

We always love the drive to Salisbury – another gorgeous Litchfield County town. Joie Maison is a gift store, wait for it… brimming with gifts. One for them, one for you! We especially love that they cover all price points. Gorgeous purses, locally made jewelry (especially cute necklaces and earrings!), coffee table books, barware, clothing, we could go on and on. Basically, go there, and you won’t leave without a gift for mom, promise!

NeJaime’s Wine & Spirits

Toast mom for Mother’s Day! Go together to NeJaime’s Wine & Spirits in New Milford during Mother’s day weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) where John NeJaime and crew will be pouring samples of the different styles of champagnes and sparkling wines. Raise a glass of bubbly to your mom, then buy her the bottle! If sparkling wine isn’t her tipple of choice, the staff at NeJaime’s Wine and Spirits will be happy to suggest a different choice out of their vast selection of wines, beers, spirits, and gifts.

Safari Collective

Are these cute or what? We are so into these copper & concrete air plant holders! Let us list the reasons why. Air plants are resilient and low-maintenance (just give them a spritz of water here and there). This gift is both unique and super cute. And, a little plant life is good in every room! Air plant and holders are sold separately, but that’s ok, the Safari Collective in New Milford carries both! Plant holders start at $12 and add a plant for $3-5. Handmade in the US.
