Mother's day gift guide
Mother’s Day is a time for us to celebrate some of the most special people in our lives. With all our mother figures do for us, how can one gift ever be enough? We know it can be a difficult task to find the perfect gift, so we’ve narrowed down a list that any mom would be sure to love!! Gifts that are useful as much as they are thoughtful. Gifts that aren't just a one-off, but something she can use over and over again. Gifts that are handmade with love by someone who cares. And gifts that show how much you appreciate all she does for you--and for everyone else in your life! Let’s dive into locally made, ethically sourced, and one-of-a-kind gift ideas!

A Permanent Jewelry Experience
If there’s one thing moms will never have enough of, it’s quality time. Treat your mom to a permanent jewelry experience! You can get matching bracelets, anklets, rings, or even necklaces! Add birthstones, hearts, and letter charms to represent your loving relationship. Your Forever Linked jewelry will serve as a wonderful daily reminder of your unbreakable bond. Available in sterling silver, goldfill, and 14k gold. Forever not for you? No worries, you can add a clasp! After you’ve been Linked, be sure to stop by our small business neighbors to continue your shopping or stop for a bite to eat! This is an in-store experience only. You can read more about the Forever Linked process here.
