Tybee Island Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

She raised you. She loves you, and she’s been right there in your corner every step of the way. She’s your mom, and she deserves the best this Mother’s Day. Though you should celebrate and cherish your mother every moment you have, the second Sunday in May presents a special opportunity to go that extra mile to make your momma feel like the MVP she truly is.

With that being said, if you have yet to consider gift ideas, you’re in luck because Tybee Island is chocked full of grand gifting options that any mother could love. With traditional selections and more idiosyncratic gift ideas to discover around the isle, you’re sure to find the perfect present to warm your mother’s heart this holiday.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

A Beautiful Bouquet from Posh Posy Florist

A gorgeous flower arrangement is a timeless Mothers Day gift – unless of course, she’s pollen-sensitive, in which case, keep reading for more options. If your mother isn’t averse to garden flora, then make your way down to Flower Wanda’s Posh Posy Florist and order a beautiful bouquet to brighten up her home. Flower Wanda has several special Mother’s Day arrangements available for purchase. Choose from classic roses, colorful carnations, pretty daisies, lilies and more. You can pick up your posies or have them specially delivered right to her door. Either way, she’ll love her fine flower arrangement from Posh Posy Florist.

Endless Aromatherapy from Kelly & Company

The personal and home fragrance industries have capitalized on a simple, but true premise: women like things that smell good. But there’s a critical issue with a lot of perfumes, air fresheners and candles that you’ll find on the shelves at major retailers; they’re made with some considerably harmful chemicals, which can be problematic for health overtime. If the mom in your life is a fragrance fan, consider introducing her to the aromatic and holistic world of essential oils. Located on Highway 80, Kelly & Company has everything she’ll need to get started to include the finest quality oils, beautiful diffusers and toxin-free lotions, balms and sprays. Kelly will even make a custom blend for your mom based on her therapeutic needs and preferences. With a diffuser and a supply of oils like lavender, frankincense and geranium, your mom will be able to enjoy countless hours of soothing aromatherapy in the comforts of her own home. It’s the gift that truly keeps on giving.

A Unique Gift from Seaside Sisters

There are no cookie-cutter moms, so don’t opt for a cookie-cutter gift. Find a unique option at Seaside Sisters, a cool coastal shore house with home décor, housewares, original art, books, women’s accessories and even vintage pieces. Whether you’re shopping for mom, grandma or the mother of your children, you’re sure to find the perfect gift to make her smile. Revive her culinary passions with a Mary Kay Andrews cookbook, treat her to a beautiful shell necklace or fill that one empty space on her wall with an attractive hanging art piece. There are as many options in store as there are qualities that you love about the special mom in your life.

A Sweet Treat from Seaside Sweets

Another venture from the ladies behind Seaside Sisters, Seaside Sweets has all the goods when it comes to saccharine edibles this Mothers Day. Treat your mother to a real treat this holiday with a decorated box of freshly-made, high-quality candies. Seaside Sweets is known for their stellar gelato, but that’s far from all they have to offer. They vend decadent chocolates and melt-in-your-mouth fudge, old-fashioned candy, gummies and taffy, Southern pralines and world-class turtles. A gift from Seaside Sweets is sure to make you the candy apple of your mother’s eye this holiday.

An Upcycled Creation from Island Gypseas

Give back to your mother and Mother Earth this holiday with a conscious purchase from Island Gypseas. Making conservation cool, Island Gypseas specializes in upcycling. They take items that have been seen better days and reinvent them into new, custom creations. With everything from driftwood candleholders and hand-stitched throw pillows to mosaic tables and cool cloth cats, Island Gypseas is the place to find a one-of-a-kind gift for your one-of-a-kind mom.
