Great Bear Vineyards is celebrating Mother’s Day with estate grown wine and olive oil, and Araceli Farms lavender. $60 with free local delivery.


Many of the best gifts for Mother’s Day are the ones that can’t be found in any store—a hand-drawn card, breakfast in bed, and a heartfelt “thank you.” After all, it’s the thought that counts!

But if you’re looking for something special to wrap up with bow, take a look at these local Davis makers and businesses for inspiration… 


Bring her Flowers

Local flower grower Katie Koch, Flower Mama, is offering bouquets on her website, and local florist Strelitzia is open for orders.

You can also pick up fresh flowers at the Saturday Davis Farmer’s Market, or at local grocers like the Davis Food Co-Op and Nugget Markets

And if she prefers her flowers in the ground, local Redwood Barn Nursery offers free local delivery with no minimum purchase. 

Satisfy her Sweet Tooth

Let Them Eat Cake is baking up beautiful special four-inch rounds for Mother’s Day. $25, for pickup or delivery.

Food, be it decadent sweets or a hearty meal, is a nearly foolproof gift option for Mother’s Day.

Davis Creamery and Konditorei remain open to make sure that she is able to enjoy a sweet treat.

Or, for a fun way to spend the day, Let Them Eat Cake will be offering cupcake decorating kits in addition to taking custom orders. Make sure to snag a few of the amazing treats for yourself!

Choose Something She’ll Treasure

The Pence offers easy, safe pick-up. Pictured are ceramic owls by Terry Ostovar.

Local art spaces, like The Pence Art Gallery, John Natsoulas Center for the Arts, and The Artery carry works by local artists and artisans.

Contact the galleries directly or consider shopping locally through the Nytch App, which features everything from artwork to jewelry to vases for her favorite bouquet. Check The Artery website for contact information for many artists who can be reached for a purchase, even while the physical gallery isn’t open.

Match her Taste

Accessories like earrings and scarves might be especially appreciated for all of her zoom calls. Or maybe she’s looking for new gear to get outside biking, running, or walking.

Choose something that shows you pay attention to what she likes best. Make sure to check the sites and social media accounts of stores like Pinkadot, Creme de la Creme or Ken’s Bike & Ski to make sure that she can move and groove in style! 

Gift her a Basket

Avid Reader Mother’s Day Bundles start at $40. You pick the number of items and they do the rest!

No matter what she’s into, a thoughtfully curated Mother’s Day basket makes a great gift.

The Avid Reader is offering a wonderful selection of variously priced bundles.

If you aren’t able to raise a glass to mom in person this year, surprise her with a Great Bear Vineyards bundle (top)—including local, estate-grown wine, olive oil, and culinary lavender from Araceli Farms.

Or, if you’re DIY-ing your own gift basket, be sure to visit the Farmer’s Market for a variety of local treats and goodies. They even sell baskets!

Offer her the Choice

Gift Cards can be purchased to local restaurants and businesses, giving her the choice to redeem hers now or later.

Consider spa certificates, favorite eateries, fitness classes (pictured, Fit House), and more!

Happy Mother’s Day! We know there are so many more great local options—let us know where you’ll be shopping!
