Lovely, Local Mother’s Day Gifts

Show the special mom in your life how much you appreciate her by shopping locally this Mother’s Day. Here on the Kitsap Peninsula, we have many wonderful options. By supporting local businesses, you not only find personalized Mother’s Day gifts, but you also contribute to the growth and success of your community. This May, explore charming boutiques, artisanal shops, and local events for a truly unforgettable celebration.

Give the Gift of Relaxation

A spa day is always a treat. There are so many local options, including a Signature Aromatherapy Massage at The Spa + Salon at Renew in Pleasant Beach Village, Holistic Skincare at Poulsbo Day Spa, or a Hot Stone Massage at Bliss Day Spa in Kingston. Looking for an at-home spa experience? Check out the selection of all-natural soaps, lotions, balms, and more at Point Unbroken. Another great way to encourage relaxation is to pick up a book you know she will love from Bainbridge Island’s beloved Eagle Harbor Book Company. And, you can pair it with delightful teas or tinctures from Bainbridge Apothecary and Tea Shop.  


Opt for an Experience

Give Mom the gift of time together. There are a variety of events happening on Mother’s Day weekend. Catch a performance of KCMT’s “Shrek the Musical” on Saturday or Sunday if she is a fan of the theater.  If her love language is flowers, get her a ticket to Roses and Rosé by The Healers Harvest at Glass Parlour in Bremerton. Together, you will learn the artistic skill of flower arranging while sipping on some wonderful rosé. Or, take the whole family to Petal & Pitchfork Farm in Poulsbo for their Mother’s Day Bouquet Bar where you can see the flower fields and bring your own picnic lunch. Looking for something really festive? All weekend long here on Bainbridge Island, you and the moms in your life can enjoy the Ravine Art Faire with handcrafted gifts from popup vendors as well as Island Life Artisan Gifts, and make-and-take crafts for kids. For the foodie mom, Wine on the Rock is a wine and cheese experience which includes a passport for Bainbridge wineries. For the mom who loves to shop, book a Mother’s Day styling experience at Purpose Boutique in Silverdale. 

If you already have plans for Mother’s Day but want to surprise her with a shared experience to look forward to, make a reservation for Cottage Tea for Two. It’s an afternoon of high tea at the Sweet Life Cakery in Kingston, complete with a lovely pot of tea, delectable sweets and savories, and a cute, cozy setting.

Locally-Curated Mother’s Day Gifts She’ll Love

For a mom with unique tastes, locally-made artisan jewelry from Bainbridge’s Plum makes a beautiful gift. For jewelry inspired by the Pacific Northwest, check out Verksted Gallery in Poulsbo. Willowtree Health Market just started stocking a new line of Bainbridge-made makeup and skincare and also has lots of other fun snacks and self-care items. In Port Gamble, Wish carries a wide variety of handmade cards, art prints, books, and jewelry. And, just down the block, there are “Treasure Gift Boxes” at the Port Gamble General Store. These gift boxes have different, fun themes like “crazy chicken lady” or the classic Mother’s Day theme. If you’re looking for something that keeps the environment in mind, check out these eco-friendly products found in North Kitsap.

We hope these ideas help you find the perfect way to show your appreciation. Cheers to all the incredible mothers and motherly figures out there who give so much, every single day!
