Here’s a curated Mother’s Day gift guide featuring unique products, services and experiences to help you celebrate your marvelous matriarch Tybee-style. 

Transcendent Treasures

If your mom or the mother of your children is spiritually inclined, or just likes pretty things, a gift from Transcendent Treasures is sure to satisfy. The island’s purveyor of energetic crystals and jewelry, Transcendent Treasures presents an array of precious stones that are as beautiful as they are high-vibrational. These gems are sourced from exotic locales like Thailand, Brazil and Indonesia and are available in organic shapes, obelisks, and carved creations. You can’t go wrong with one of their bundles, which come with stones, bracelets and sage smudges to clear negative energy and elevate the spirit. Their love, anti-stress and protection bundles are affordable and believed to help attract good vibes, and if there’s anything a mother can always benefit from, it’s definitely good vibes. 

Wen McNally Photography

Make this Mother’s Day extra special by giving mom something she can cherish for years to come: a beautiful and artfully composed family portrait shot by Wen McNally, a Tybee photographer specializing in family portraiture. Gather mom and the family for a fun photoshoot amid Tybee’s breathtaking ocean backdrop. McNally is skilled in capturing and conveying the love shared among family members. You’ll walk away with a set of stunning photos that mom can hang proudly on her walls at home. It’s an experience she’ll reflect fondly on for the rest of her life.
