Mother’s Day Gifts
Get a head start on your Mother’s Day gift shopping by supporting four local makers from the Chippewa Valley that sell on Etsy!

These items make wonderful gifts for not only Mother’s Day but they make wonderful housewarming gifts, wedding gifts, birthday gifts, or hostess gifts. Make sure to order soon to guarantee your orders!
The Smudge Kit
J Plank Designs – Local Maker Jolene, has created an assortment of beautiful Smudge Kits. This one is my personal favorite. It’s called the LOVE Smudge Bundle and includes sage, an abalone shell, a rose quartz crystal, a palo santo stick, and a selenite stick. Use this kit to remove negative vibes and bring love and compassion into your life or to the life of someone you love. You will also find crystals, gems, and jewelry on her site.
Lavender Eye Pillows
Mimsy Design Company – Lightly weighted Lavender Eye Pillows by local maker Sara. I keep one of her eye pillows on my nightstand and one near my yoga mat! You’ve may have used an eye mask during yoga or meditation, or maybe at your local spa. The slight aromatic effect of lavender and flaxseed can help calm the mind and signal the body it is time for rest. Lavender is known to reduce anxiety and encourage restful sleep and eye masks are designed to soothe and relax tired eyes. According to Sara’s Etsy page, Eye pillows can help alleviate irritated, itchy, and burning eyes caused by over-exposure to blue light, and they can also help calm the nerves and light sensations associated with migraines. Each pillow is made of premium high-grade cotton on one side and an ultra-soft minky fabric on the other.
Live-Edge Charcuterie Boards
Take-Two By Kelly – Local Maker, Kelly makes each re-claimed live-edge charcuterie board made from Black Walnut or Oak. Each serving Board is made from reclaimed wood and is unique and oh so beautiful. If you saw our Valentine’s Day Charcuterie Board post I used one of Kelly’s boards! Use them as a tray to corral items on your counter or as a serving tray. Boards vary in size and quantities are limited! You can also find custom upcycled one-of-a-kind flannel shirts on her site .
Custom Hand-Written Recipe Board
Inspiration Lately – Local makers Sara and Andrea are a mother and daughter duo making custom wood engraved products and this recipe board is so fun. Personalize a cutting board with a handwritten recipe engraved on the cutting board. Use your imagination when customizing your gift! I love the handwritten recipe idea. Maybe you have an old recipe from your Grandparents that your Mom would love to see on a cutting board. Maybe your daughter would love one from you. Be creative; you could add a poem, or just about anything!
Mother’s Day is just under a month away! Remember these items are made by the makers so order early to guarantee receipt of your gift by Mother’s Day May 9th.
Happy Shopping! – Kim
