Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Ideas


A couple of weeks ago, I went to a pop up shop called The Collective, featuring local businesses and artists hosted by LAB MPLS. Some I knew of prior to attending, but I couldn’t believe how many amazing Minneapolis businesses and locally-made products were packed into the space. The event had everything from candles to jewelry to prints - you name it. Not only did I leave the event crazy-inspired and excited to support small businesses, but also with tons of future gift ideas.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d pull together a few of my favorite gift ideas from local Minneapolis businesses (some featured at The Collective) for all of my fellow last minute shoppers. Read on for gift ideas for your mom, grandma, aunt, friend, or any other lovely lady in your life.

Pink Linen Designs


How CUTE are these wooden signs from Pink Linen Designs?! I just love how simple yet so fun and unique each one is. Kait describes her pieces as something that can “fit into pretty much any style of home, area in your home or other space” - which is what I love so much about them too.

Thumbs Cookies


Locally made in Minneapolis, these cute, mini Thumbs Cookies come in a variety of flavors and packages (with both gluten free and vegan available). Both the Assorted Cookies Gift Box and the To-Go Gift Trio are perfect tasty little gifts.

Wit & Delight Shop

Last spring, local blog and brand, Wit & Delight, launched a product line of prints, stationary, and gifts. You’ll love the soft colors, simplicity, and fun lettering. Available on Shop Wit & Delight and at Anthropologie.

Koonyai Studio


Simple, dainty, and modern, Koonyai Studio jewelry is the perfect addition to any outfit. All jewelry pieces are handmade from concrete and hypoallergenic metals.
