Local Gift Guide: Mother's Day

Mother’s day is that one day of the year that is fully dedicated to showing your appreciation for everything your mom does for you. If you’re like us, you look for local inspiration first. We’ve gathered a gift guide of great local spots to treat the (first) leading lady in your life:


Does your mom need a little R&R? Try the Blow Out Bar in Grandview. Taking the time to blow dry your hair into glowy-perfection takes a lot of time that moms just don’t have. A quick blow out is a simple way to amp up what she’s already got going on – plus, it just feels great to be pampered.

Speaking of being pampered, you could always make a day of it! After you head to the Blow Out Bar, treat your mom to getting her nails done at the new W Nail Bar in Short North. The best part about the W Nail Bar is they offer top quality manicures and pedicures- in an environment that is free of the harsh chemicals associated with acrylic nails. All the good without the bad.


Zest Juice for the lady always on the go who deserves the positive elements to keep her at the top of her game. Zest only produces cold-pressed juices, so mom will never be short of all those nutrients. You can either stop by Mother’s Day or grab a gift card for her online.

If gifts aren’t something that your mom cares for – how about some quality time over brunch? Fox in the Snow Cafe is a perfect spot for a cup of Columbus’ best coffee (in our opinion) paired with a delightful baked good almost as good as mom’s.

If brunch just doesn’t hit the spot there’s always the ever-famous Pistacia Vera. With two locations in Columbus you’ll be sure to find enough sweet treats for mom! Check out the German Village location or the North Market location.

If your mom enjoys the perfect glass of wine, choose House Wine to help you find a classy wine by color and character. Hop on over to Worthington to grab the perfect bottle!


Is your mom the gal that loves handmade items? A custom candle from the Candle Lab, could be the perfect gift because pouring one of your own says more than buying off the shelf. Select from scents like clean linen or cake batter for a little reminder of the smell of home!

Thinking of taking a traditional route? A card from Igloo Letterpress is the way to go because Hallmark doesn’t cut it in terms of custom card sentiments, only Igloo Letterpress conveys the quality and craftsmanship your mom deserves!
