Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 9, and if you are stumped on what to get mom, don’t sweat it, we got you covered. From tie-dye essentials and phone chains to a customized bicycle, gift mom with anything from one of these locally-based brands to show her your love and appreciation and possibly win points as the favorite child in the family.
Live & Let Dye
We are addicted to Live & Let Dye and have a wardrobe to prove it. For the active mom, the workout T or workout towel is the perfect addition to step up her gym look. Or opt for a T-shirt or hoodie from their best-selling Spider collection. You can also try punching up her kicks with the brand's tie-dye shoelaces. All pieces are hand-dyed with love in Miami by founder Andrea Carneiro. letsgetdye.com @letsgetdye
Monde World’s #CountYourBlessings Phone Chains are a must-have item that mom might not know she needs, but trust us, she does. Created by Aliette Monde an artist, designer, and magic maker, one of our favorites from the collection are the heart chains, which feature 124 heart-shaped beads, in Red or Opaque, Pink Sparkle, Pink Pearl, White Pearl, or Clear, (totaling at approximately 22” inches long) that are all charged with crystal-infused holy water enhanced with seasonal flower essences, essential oils, and colognes. These high-vibes chains will allow mom to be hands-free and stylish while manifesting her dreams as #124 is an Angel number that comes as a message that cooperation and hard work are needed for the manifestation of your dreams. You can customize your chain with a saying, name, initials, or whatever your heart desires. etsy.com/alittemonde, @mondeworld_
Moms are often on the go which sometimes leaves little time for getting in all the nutrients they need to keep themselves nourished and in optimal health. Mumi Design’s Single Does Kit helps to solve that with their convenient, mess-free solution for taking powder supplements (such as protein, collagen, or pre-workout powders) on the go. Featuring 7 single-dose pouches and a wide mouth funnel for a mess-free transfer, the pouches are safely stored in a zip-up bag that is compact to fit into a purse, gym bag, tote, or glove compartment.
