Mother’s Day is May 10th and instead of heading to the mall to shop for the same old gifts, why not stroll through the local Cape Cod towns and online shops that support local and gift mom with a handmade treat that she would love? Here’s our list of some of our favorite locally made gifts, as well as one spot where you can shop all things local in Hyannis!
1. Mermaid Sea Glass Wristlet by Cape Cod Bag Company
This wristlet is the perfect size for when you don’t want to carry around a ton of things – just throw your phone, cards, and a bit of cash in there plus the essentials like chapstick and sunglasses and you’re ready to go! Visit their studio in Provincetown, MA or shop online.
2. Ruby Red Grapefruit Candle by Cape Cod Soy Candle
All mothers love a fresh smelling home and with this locally made candle that burns a juicy and zesty grapefruit smell for over 90 hours, it’s the perfect gift! Find it at The Little Beach Gallery, West Main St., Hyannis (check out other stores on the Cape here) or shop online.
3. Cranberry Strawberry Jelly by Cape Cod Cranberry Harvest
This jelly is a blend of sun-ripened strawberries and native Cape Cod cranberries that make a sweet and fruity treat, perfect for moms that love to bake! A dollop of this jelly on cheesecakes, cakes, or slathered on freshly baked bread is the way to go. Shop online or find them locally at the Coonamessett Farm in East Falmouth.
4. Cape Cod Sea Bubble Glass by Michael Magyar
Glass blowing is an art that can be found all over the world, but only on Cape Cod can you find glass bubbles filled with local beach sand and tiny shells! Stop by the glass blowing studio in East Sandwich and pick up a sea bubble for the beach loving mother, while you watch the glass blower at work and admire the their craft.
5. The Little Beach Gallery
One of our favorite local galleries to stop by for gift ideas is The Little Beach Gallery in Hyannis. Showcasing over 60 New England and Cape Cod artists, you’re bound to find something perfect for the moms in your life! Some ideas include tea towels, hand painted maps, and block printed notebooks.
6. Shift Eco Boutique
“Shift is geared towards women of all ages who consciously want to enjoy purchasing quality wardrobe staples as much as couture clothing and having some sort of a connection to what they wear”. We love that they partner with tons of local Cape Cod artists and it’s a place where you know you’re getting quality clothing on the Cape.
Want to gift mom with an experience instead of a gift? Book her a Belleza & The Beach Spa Package or a Beach Stone Package at our hotel! The packages include one-night stay at our beach resort, spa-inspired gift bag, and the relaxing massages and/or facials.
If you’re staying at our hotel and want to stop by for a great last minute gift, come and explore our hotel gift shop, which is packed with gifts for every budget and personality! These ShoreArt Gifts nautical inspired earrings would make the ideal gift for the mother that loves interesting jewelry inspired on Cape Cod!
