The Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas to Buy Locally

Mother's Day Gift

Looking for an out-of-the-box idea for a Mother’s Day Gift this year?

Mom’s are such a huge part of our lives and sadly, we only spend 1 day a year celebrating them. Instead of the usual flowers and plants, think outside of the box this year and give the mom’s in your life the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift!

Since we are all about supporting local business here on Long Island and love making it easy for our readers to find the help they need locally, we created a Mother’s Day Gift Guide! We feature the best gifts to buy for Mother’s Day from local businesses right here on Long Island! From thoughtful gifts to fun experiences shared together to literally breaking things in a room to get out pent up aggression, we got you covered!

For the “Fun” Mom: Get Fuzed with Jen Salta (Huntington)

If you want to let your mom know how close your bond really is this Mother’s Day, consider taking her to “Get Fuzed” by local artist and trained jeweler Jen Salta!

Permanent Jewelry is a term used for a chain that is Fuzed onto the wrist, ankle or neck without the fuss of a clasp. This is done using a laser welder! This is a tool that jewelers have used in the industry for many years! It is completely painless and each fuzing takes only a max of 15-20 min. The chains come in silver, gold filled and solid 14k gold (upon request). All of these metals can be worn swimming, working out and everyday without the fear of changing color. The jewelry is really only as permanent as you want it to be, so the commitment is nothing to worry about. If you want to remove it you can simply use a nail clipper!

For more information or to book an appointment, email [email protected] or call the studio at 631-974-8010.

For the Sentimental Mom: Give the Gift of a Memory with a Custom Photo Shell By Local Artist Art By Marni B

If you really want to pull on the heartstrings this Mother’s Day, order a custom photo shell from local artist Art By Marni B! Marni can take a photo and overlay it onto a Long Island Seashell with a hand painted background creating the perfect Mother’s Day Gift!

Choose a family photo, her favorite picture, or even a funny photo that makes her laugh. She will love seeing the thought you put into her gift this year and will display it proudly instead of throwing it in the back of a closet alongside last years gifts.

You can connect with Marni via her Instagram account here!

For the “Picture Taking” Mom: Give the Gift of an Experience with a Picnic by Long Island Luxury Picnics!

If you really want to spoil mom this year, get the family together and plan a luxury picnic with Long Island Luxury Picnics! Picture walking her up to a beautiful location where she thinks she’s going for a walk, but instead, you lead her to this beautiful luxury picnic set up for some much needed quality time. This is how you win Mother’s Day, especially if she is an avid poster on social media.

For the “Water Loving” Mom: Book A Too Happy Charters Sunset Cruise for Her Mother’s Day Gift

If the mom in your life is a lover of being on the water, you have hit the jackpot with a sunset cruise on Too Happy Charters! Picture pulling up to Huntington Harbor and walking up to your privately chartered sunset cruise to be greeted by a local couple who will be your captain and stew for the evening!

Once on board, you will enjoy appetizers as you sail to your sunset destination, the main course during sunset and dessert on your way back. All food is included in the pricing as well and the views and service is to die for. You feel like you’re starring in an episode of Below Deck without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and travelling across the world.

I personally have taken 2 sunset cruises with Too Happy Charters and have nothing but amazing things to say about the owners Scott and Shari and the experience I had both times on board. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, and you felt at home the entire time while enjoying the most beautiful sunsets on Long Island. I give it 5 stars all around and highly recommend this experience.

For the “I Love to Cook” Mom: Take Mom to a Cooking Class for Her Mother’s Day Gift!

Cooking classes are a great way to spend time and learn something new together. They are also a great way to connect with her passions and can create a lasting memory. Two of our favorite places for cooking classes on Long Island are The Cook’s Studio (located in Huntington, Amityville and Patchogue) and Babylon Mercantile (located in Babylon). Both places offer a ton of class options and a great experience!

For the “I Need to Take Out Some Aggression” Mom: Bring Her to iSMASH in Farmingdale!

If the mom or wife in your life has a little pent up aggression and needs a good outlet, take her to iSMASH in Farmingdale! She will have the chance to spend between 20-55 minutes smashing glass items, electronics and some packages even offer a car windshield!

This is the perfect gift for husbands who may or may not be walking on eggshells lately and want to give their wife a chance to let it all out. Encourage her to picture your face on the items she smashes, the dirty laundry everywhere, her boss, and the kids fighting in hopes to show understanding of what she deals with (and a little humor too). This may be the best Mother’s Day ever for her and could become a new tradition!

Conclusion

We hope this Mother’s Day Gift Guide helped you think outside the box this year to show the moms in your life how special they really are!
