If you still have not settled on the right gift for Mother’s Day, shopping local is the perfect solution for your time crunch and helps contribute to the health of our community!

Here are some of our favorite places to find locally sourced gifts for Mother’s Day!

Step up Mom’s greenery game!

Social Greenery offers a darling DIY succulent box with everything mom will need to pot and embellish a new succulent (plus a sweet treat for her!) The boxes range from $18 to $28 and are available for pick up or delivery.

Give the gift of gorgeous flowers that support an important cause when you preorder a Mother’s Day bouquet from Curbside Flowers by May 4. Every arrangement is hand-assembled by a Curbside vendor, and the business provides meaningful employment to people transitioning out of homelessness in our community.

Take mom shopping!

Visit the Oklahoma City Flower & Garden Festival on Saturday at Myriad Gardens to discover a variety of vendors offering everything from flowers and produce to jewelry and wine. The Indie Trunk Show at the State Fairgrounds Pavilion features local artists, crafters, makers, and boutiques, all from Oklahoma. Shop a farmers market for fresh finds, with Edmond’s Farmer Market being a top favorite. If you already have other plans, you can opt to shop online from the Edmond Farmers Market and they’ll have your items ready for pick up. Moms would love hanging floral baskets, premium-roast coffee, body butters, soaps, sweet treats and more.

Pick your own strawberries and make a delicious Mother’s Day brunch.

Growing Paynes Farm in Mustang is hosting a special strawberry picking event with u-pick strawberries plus food trucks and local vendors. Spend some time together and then make mom a sweet treat from your harvest. Their Mother’s Day Mayhem is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Buffalo Creek Berry Farm will also be open for strawberry picking on Mother’s Day from 2 to 5 p.m., while supplies last.

Gift mom a unique piece of art from a local artist.

Take a tour of a few local galleries and let mom pick out a unique piece of art. Or pick one out for her and include a little bio on the artist so mom can get to know the fellow Oklahoma behind the creation. Enjoy the Paseo Arts District‘s First Friday Gallery Walk, which includes live entertainment, specials and artist meet-and-greets. The Plaza, Downtown Norman and Downtown Edmond are also great destinations.
