Mother’s Day is coming up, and most of us are scrambling to find the perfect gifts for those special women in our lives. Sure, we could get the usual movie theater gift card, tasteful potted plant, or off the rack blouse, but why not get Mom something truly unique and support local businesses at the same time?
Here at the Portland Girl, we love gifts from local artisans. Not only is the quality amazing, but these gifts tend to be one-of-a-kind, and something the lucky recipient will remember forever!
No matter what her style is, we’ve found all kinds of incredible gifts for your mother, grandmother, sister, or any other special women you’d like to honor this Mother’s Day. Treat them to delicious foods and teas, luxurious spa products, beautiful decor, or one of a kind clothing and accessories, all local to the Portland area!
Here are our favorite Mother’s Day gifts from Portland artisans and businesses:
This company creates the most stunning handmade clothing, scarves, and handbags from vintage materials.Their work is heavily influenced by Japanese styles and patterns. Trust us, you won’t find anything quite like this anywhere else. There’s plenty to choose from, and you’re sure to find something to complement your mom’s individual style.
If Mom’s a tea lover, try some unique goodies (or even a subscription box!) with a philanthropic angle. A portion of their profits is donated to both local and international causes. Enjoy a cup of delicious tea with your mom and help the world at the same time! (Sounds like a win-win to us!)
Brighten up Mom’s space with a gorgeous plant friend! We love this local nursery because it carries beautiful plants you won’t find in the gardening section of most stores. Whether your mom has a green thumb or prefer more low-maintenance greenery, you’ll find something perfect for her. You can also find all kinds of beautiful plant accessories like lovely watering cans, planters, and more!

Handmade, vintage, eco-friendly, this shop is a treasure trove of function and fashion with meaning. With tons of items under $25, they’re easy on the budget too!
Grab a gift certificate and treat Mom to a lovely soak in these incredible hot springs overlooking the city. This isn’t your typical day spa or gym sauna. With pools of different temperatures, on site massage therapists, and beautiful design, it’s a relaxation experience unlike any other.
