Last Minute Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day from Detroit Small Businesses


With Mother’s Day only days away and stores closed for in-person shopping, we gathered a go-to list of local businesses where you can get great items through pick-up or delivery. Shop for those moms and grandmas on your list, or even better, send this list to your significant other with the items YOU want circled. There’s no shame in telling your loved ones just what you want.

Here are some of Detroit Mom’s favorite small businesses. Many of them are offering delivery, quick shipping or pickup!

Madison Boutique

Madison Boutique is one of our absolute favorites. You can find all your clothing needs from comfy casual to styled for a night out, and coffee mugs to unique gifts. There is something for everyone in this cute shop. These days we’re leaning towards the comfy life, and we guarantee you’ll find something you can’t live without. Check out all of their goodies on their Instagram.

Detroit Cookie Co.

I just received a dozen of these sweet treats from Detroit Cookie Co. for my birthday and they were insanely good! My new fave is the Banana Pudding. I cannot even begin to express how delish they tasted. You honestly cannot go wrong with any of their flavors. Trust me. Treat yourself and get a variety pack. Their cookies are baked fresh daily and multiple times a day. They are also ready to ship straight to your home! Check out their Instagram to see just what you’d be getting.

Kiloh and Co.

I’ve been talking about this company for years, and Amanda’s items are probably one of my favorite gifts to give. I basically live in a shirt from Kiloh + Co. each and every day. Her newest addition, the script tee, has recently been added to my wish list. All the apparel is super cozy and represents the love each one of us has for the city. She also has another line called Girl with a Dream. As a dreamer, I personally love this collection. It’s empowering!

The Blonde Mom

With summer right around the corner, a personal styling session with the lovely Kendra from The Blonde Mom is a great gift for every mom. If you’ve been here for awhile, you’ve seen Kendra and heard about her love of fashion. She’s practical, loves to make fashion fun, and thinks it should be affordable for everyone. She is also the one who styles me for every special occasion and the change of seasons. When it comes to fashion, I struggle. Kendra has given me the confidence I need by choosing items I wouldn’t have ever thought to try on. You can pick up a gift certificate from her and plan ahead to post-quarantine. She offers several services. Follow her on Instagram for the latest fashion.

The Lipstick Journey

You’ll fall in love the gorgeous colors of liquid lipstick that The Lipstick Journey offers. She has five colors to choose from that are all cruelty-free and toxin-free. The best part of all is that each purchase helps the company donate and volunteer in the fight against cancer.

Le Detroit Macaron

Le Detroit Macaron is the way to my heart. I truly believe they have the best macarons in Detroit. They are little morsels of goodness. My favorites are Oreo Cheesecake and Lavender. Well, if I’m being honest, I haven’t met a flavor I didn’t love. Jump over to her Instagram to see what I’m talking about. Put a 12 pack on your wish list this Mother’s Day. Just have your family call in an order and pick them up curbside. You won’t be disappointed.

Acorn Handmade Co.

Acorn Handmade Co. is the perfect place to shop for handmade items, custom and personalized, for baby and home. Whether it’s for the newest little bundle of joy in your life, or a beautiful way to display a family photo, Acorn Handmade’s items are sure to make mom smile. She will love the unique style of the hand-lettered signs, available in multiple sizes with many paint colors to choose from. The handmade items are sure to be treasured for years to come!

Ferne Boutique Detroit

Ferne Boutique Detroit is another place I shop shop frequently and have a lot of my personal clothing from! Ferne carries a selection of items focused on providing women with pieces they can wear for many years. They carry sizes XS-3X and strive to carry styles for women of all sizes that fit in with their unique aesthetic. We promise you’ll find something you love. Jump over to their Instagram for all of their updated looks.

Thyme and Honey

If you’re looking to spoil mom (or yourself!) with a day or a week without having to worry about meals so that someone else has them prepped for you, Thyme and Honey is the service you want.  Thyme and Honey nourishes people through food with a little bit of flair and a whole lot of love. Check out her delicious dishes over on her Instagram. I’m currently eying her Nosh Box.

We’re sure you’ll love her!

Anuja Tolia Jewelry is absolutely gorgous and made by a local Detroit Mom. She cares so much, and pays attention to every detail to ensure that each piece is flawless.
