Kards Unlimited

Shadyside 

Looking for an obscure and special Mother’s Day Card? Kards Unlimited has plenty of pop-culture references on hand. Find a card with David from Schitt’s Creek on the front. Or one that expresses “star baker” status from the judges of The Great British Baking Show. However, if these selections aren’t hitting mom’s personality, browse their other shelves for books, puzzles, games, socks, coloring books, and much more.

Scribe Fine Papers

Shadyside

You’ll find only the finest greeting card designs and stationary when you stop into Scribe Fine Papers. Look through elegant, letterpress notecards from Larry Orlando Calligrapher and foil embellished cards from Paula Skene Designs. The shop also has a variety of vintage items for sale from antique, glass trinket dishes to hand painted porcelain plates in case mom is a collector.

Fashion

Larrimor’s 

Downtown  

Gift mom a whole new outfit from top-brands provided by Larrimor’s.

Madeleine George 

Shadyside  

Luxe and modern are the watchwords of Madeleine George, a boutique run by two self-professed fashion-aholics, Nicole and Stacy. Let them show you their in-demand staples and trending styles at a variety of price points.

Treats and Pampering

Deliver mom a trip to a relaxing day spa at ESSpa. Look forward to facial services like hydrofacials, light therapy, and plasma fibroblasting. Then, tend to the rest of mom’s body with Thai massages, lash extensions, manicures, pedicures, and body wraps.

Tabbara Chocolates

Point Breeze

Mom deserves a treat as sweet as her love on Mother’s Day. Tabbara specializes in artisan chocolates with exquisite fillings based in generations-old family recipes. For the big day you can order a “Best Mom Ever” chocolate bar made with dark chocolate and dried berries. Or, get her a Mother’s Day Assortment including 9 or 14 tulip-shaped chocolate bonbons with flavors of mango passion fruit, cardamom coffee, and crunchy caramelized biscuits. 

Mon Aimee Chocolat

Strip District

Whether you’re looking for local, homemade chocolate or artisan creations from overseas, Mon Aimee Chocolat has it all.

If mom is into baking you can grab a bag of top-quality Guittard baking chips for her next project.

Candles 

Fjord and Fable

Lawrenceville

Candles can bring us back to a moment in time with just a small whiff. Fjord and Fable’s handcrafted soy candles are the perfect way to show you care. Hand-poured with premium essential oils and fragrance blends, these candles fill any room with rich, long-lasting scents. Take her to Maui with the scents of coconut, pineapple, and mango. Or, calm her living room with vanilla, charcoal, and oud in Vanilla and Embers. 

Mix Candle Co.

Lawrenceville and Southside Works

Why not take mom to make her own personalized candle at Mix Candle Co.? Choose from over 120 different fragrance oils such as Coffee Bean, Earl Grey Tea, Palo Santo, and Rose Petals. Then, make your perfect mix in your chosen vessel to take home with a custom label. You can even take advantage of the two hours candles take to cool and explore the many shops and eateries in neighborhood. You can even grab a delightful lunch to complete the day.

Florists 

Fox and the Fleur

Aspinwall and Sewickley

If you’re looking for an arrangement to fill mom’s kitchen or living area, Fox and the Fleur has a selection for all colors, shapes, and sizes. You can choose from various centerpieces for the dining table, signature pots to adorn shelves, or even a bucket of blooms to place in whatever container she would like. Plus, just for Mother’s Day you can attend a workshop with mom to design your own spring flower arrangement with the help of a professional.

The Farmer’s Daughter

North Side

Ready just in time for Mother’s Day, you can pick up themed arrangements and bouquets from The Farmer’s Daughter on May 10, 11, and 12. Choose between four different sizes of arrangements, a Mother’s Day bouquet, or locally made ceramic ikebana pincushion vase with fresh florals. Or, if you happen to be having Mother’s Day brunch at Cinderlands Warehouse, you can order a vase of flowers on your table to take home after your meal.
