No. The answer is no. There’s still time to get something special for the most important woman in your life, dear old mom. Your mom, your kid’s mom, your best friend’s mom who you love more than your own wife (weird, but okay, you do you) — all moms deserve the most special gift of all under the tree. It’s time to upgrade from another homemade pot holder this year. Here are our suggestions:
Something Sweet to Represent her Favorite People
Initial charms from Framer’s Cottage are just $35 per charm, so you can get a letter to represent each of her favorite minions.
What the New Mom Really Wants
Every mom loves her kids, but 9 months of no beer was quite the sacrifice. An adorable onesie and 6-pack of Prioress is good for the soul. Take care of mom’s new baby and her sanity with a gift she can really enjoy from Southern Pines Brewing Company.
Some Help in the Kitchen
Even if you’re not going to help with the cooking or cleaning (which would be the most appreciated gift year-round) a gift from Purple Thistle in Pinehurst is a great way to keep you on her mind whenever she’s making a nice meal. Cookware, spices, and sweet decor all make great gifts for the cook of the family.
And this Year’s Latest Cooking Trend
If she doesn’t have an Instant Pot yet, now is the time. There’s nothing better than the gift of not having to spend more than 15 minutes making dinner on a weeknight. Burney Hardware has a selection of the latest pressure cookers, slow cookers and more, as well as other fun kitchen accessories she’ll love.
Gift Her Some Alone Time
If you think that a gift card isn’t genuine enough for your angel of a mother, think again. There’s nothing mom deserves more than a moment away from you. A day to herself at the Pinehurst Resort Spa or a cocktail and root touch-up at Retro Studio is definitely in order.
More Pictures with You
When was the last time you were a willing participant in a photo? Get in front of the camera and get her in front of it, too. Book her a session with one of the many talented local photographers, like Brittany Raynor Photography. And yes, you let her pick out coordinating outfits for shoot day if she wants. This is her treat.
