Mother’s Day is still fast approaching and while we are staying at home it doesn’t mean you can’t make the day extra special for the woman who does it all (including holding the house together!).

Alpharetta’s local stores are closed for regular shopping experiences, but we’re fortunate to have several beloved shops, boutiques, and restaurants who have opted to get creative with online shopping options, curbside pickup, and even free delivery!

Here are a few of our picks for Super Mom-worthy gift ideas sure to brighten her mood and make quarantine just a bit more bearable:

1. A bottle of her favorite wine – Fermented Wine Boutique

Deemed an essential business (because truly – wine has never been more necessary than right now!), Fermented Wine Boutique is open and available with curbside pickup. To limit contact and keep things super convenient, call their friendly wine experts ahead of time at (470) 361-2091 or send a message to their Facebook or Instagram with your phone number and they’ll give you a call. Let Fermented Wine Boutique’s vino people put something fun together for you (oaked vs unoaked wine, tannic versus not tannic, etc) or just have them walk through the right wine profile on the phone. From delicate bubbles to luscious reds blends, Fermented has the perfect sip for your sweet momma.

2. Comfy, cute PJs – Von Maur

At home or not, Mom deserves to feel cozy and chic! Hook her up with a buttery-soft matching set of P.J. Salvage pajamas or super girly Vera Bradley two-piece PJs from Van Maur (order online). They’ll even provide free gift wrapping and handle free shipping to make the process ultra-easy!

3. A Luxe Bath Set – L’Occitane

You may not be able to gift her the spa experience she deserves right now, but the next best thing is providing her with all the goods to create a relaxing oasis in the comforts of her own home. Soothing aromas and pure indulgence abound with all of L’Occitane’s gorgeous gift sets (available online), but we’re especially partial to their luxurious French Lavender offerings. The Lavender Collection features foaming bath, relaxing pillow mist, lotion, hand cream, and their famed gentle soap bar for the ultimate in Parisian “treat yourself” vibes.

4. The perfect card – Paper Source

Whether she’s a sentimental sweetie or a lover of all things kitschy cool, The Paper Source has the right card to remind her of how incredible she is. Choose from an incredible selection of distinct Mother’s Day cards (all of which are currently on sale online!), then inscribe a heart-melting handwritten note to thank her for being a rock star mom.

5. A mom-centric gift bundle – ElleB Gifts

For those who are a little stumped about what to get the woman who deserves it all, local gift expert elleB takes the guess work out with their best-selling Mother’s Day Bundle. The bundle includes a Quoted Mom Frame, Sweet Grace Notable Candle, Inspirational Linen Towel, Scout Hidden Gem Jewel Case, set of 3 stretch bracelets, and a gorgeous engraved gold disc necklace. With free shipping and a selection of carefully curated pieces she’s sure to love, this one’s a no-brainer!

6. Local blooms to brighten the room – Roger’s Florist

Roger’s Florist has been creating custom floral arrangements in Alpharetta since 1960. With the freshest, most vibrant seasonal blooms around, this sweet local shop is your go-to for a floral arrangement fit for a queen (i.e., your mom!). From funky succulents to colorful sprays of hydrangeas, roses, lilacs, this is a Mother’s Day staple for the woman who’s been your shoulder to cry on, your biggest cheerleader, and a lifelong friend.

7. Brunch [is always a good idea] – The Original Pancake House

While you may not be able to take her out to brunch this year, you can still bring brunch to her thanks to curbside pickup courtesy of The Original Pancake House. Treat her to the mother of all Sunday morning must-haves: The Dutch Baby, a scratch-made, oven baked wonder carb served with whipped butter, lemon, and powdered sugar. Featured on Atlanta Eats, this famed Original Pancake House menu delight is sure to clinch your title of “Mom’s Favorite” once and for all!
